  1. So a bit of a follow up here......... I previously was using the cheap Chinese HDMI to I2S converter box between my OPPO 205 and Topping D90 MQA After internally matching I2S settings via the D90's Menu I was able to pass DSD externally via the OPPO's HDMI and have the Topping D90 receive it via it's I2S (HDMI) input.

The improvement is SQ is quite substantial and I highly recommend it for this task. I reckon Rob is really onto something here as the sound was clearly better in several areas.....especially the bass. Cheers, John
