Since you also have the Arcam AVR750 I'm not surprised you wanted this matching player. I'm sure they must complement each other well. The thing I find odd is that Arcam ignored incorporating balanced XLR inputs on the AVR750 to combine with the UDP411 for stereo purposes. Not even the AV950 processor has them. Only their latest stereo amp.I agre its not cheap and I auditioned it against the LX88 and preferred the Arcam for audio (2ch).
To me it beats my DV139 for DVD and CD and matched my Denon BD player so I went for it!
That player certainly is another alternative but it doesn't have balanced XLR outputs which the Oppo BDP-105 does, which is why I suggested it was the more appropriate alternative. I haven't actually reviewed the 752BD but I have tested the 751BD and that was an impressive player - Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD 3D Blu-ray Disc Player Review | AVForumsFeature-wise surely the Cambridge Audio 752BD is the obvious current alternative, and only half the price!
I concur, the multi - multi 5 star award winning Oppo 105 revered as an audiophile giant by HiFi and AV reviewers the world over with it's state of the art Sabre DACS (as used in many other great products), implemented in the 105 as to have almost unmeasurable jitter is an absolute crapper of a productHello,
I am absolutely disappointed of the Oppo 105 stereo performance! It sounds harsh, digital, not smooth, not relaxed, I think it is because of the bad sabre dac and an even worse implementation of it.
Will the Arcam UDP411 sound much better or do I need an Electrocompanet EMP3?
Anyone tried all of them?
