Re: [regsaudioforum] Tom M: BDP-105 gapless?
- I'm glad you got an answer from Oppo, Mike, since I have no idea. I don't use the Oppo or anything to stream music from a computer. I am not using a computer as a music server. I have several Logitech Squeezebox Touch units and only use those to stream internet radio. Quaint, I know.

I've been away from this Forum, experiencing normal life for a while. I am glad to see that you have been enjoying a BDP-105, a unit that's caught my eye also.
Have you used it as a network receiver (renderer) for streamed music from your computer? I am trying to find out if it will do gapless playback. Or are you feeding it USB (e.g.) directly from the computer, without using your home network?
I am amazed that one even has to ask about gapless at this late date, but some otherwise well-featured products will NOT do it,
I am looking for a reasonably priced streamer whose digital output would go into my PS Audio PWD-II, which I like in all other ways, but whose built-in streaming card introduces long gaps between tracks of streamed music. (PS is working on it, but it looks to be a while.)

- Tom, Thanks!
I'll write more about computer audio (and my love/hate relationship with
it) when my main computer is back in service.
P.S. I view it as a pity (and a peculiarly American one) that Oppo in
its high-end player did not implement streaming correctly (i.e., without
added pauses). All the British streamers I have read about do this
right, including Cambridge, Linn, and Naim. Even the Japanese are moving
in this direction. It is the American products that consider
non-pop-song music as a niche consideration.
