Re: [rivercityaudiosociety] November RCAS Meeting : Oppo Players
- For reference, if it's useful I can bring my Benchmark DAC-1. I use the balanced out with zero internal attenuation for best sound into my TVC's. Joe BohanFrom: Robert <godzilla56@...>

Subject: [rivercityaudiosociety] November RCAS Meeting : Oppo PlayersOur November meeting will feature the "hottest" universal players in the audio world. The Oppo line of machines have been proclaimed as great by every reviewer and so on. Are they? Within the RCAS club universe we have access to several models, i.e. the Oppo 83, 95, and I believe a modded unit as well. Can you hear improvements as the line has progressed? I will bring my Focal bookshelf speakers in lieu of the B&W's so that we can really listen critically to these models. Any members with Oppo machines, please let me know what you have so we can set the line up. Final details, to include date and location are pending. John and I will also discuss the Denver show as well as the other members who attended.
> Has anyone heard about the new SHM SACD format?I've got a few RB SHMs and think they sound spectacular. I think they're better than SACDs. I have lossless rips of a few SHM-SACDs and am blown away by those too. I'd actually buy some SHM-SACDs if they didn't cost $60 each.
I managed to get some of the Rush SHMs before they went out of print for $30 or so each and they're the best digital Rush I've ever heard.
- Some SHM SACD's sound very good but I don't think they are worth$60. Some people on Audio Asylum have purchased some and did not like them.Again it depends at how well they are mastered. I have a couple and don'tintend to buy any more. Vinyl and redbook cd's are fine for meAlan
