Re: [rivercityaudiosociety] Re: Blu Ray/DVD Hi Res Recordings (FLAC)
- Hi, Bob:
Are you familiar with the “superdisc” mod for your 93 which allows it to play all region DVD’s? Although you can buy the disc for a small fee on eBay I believe, you can also download it for free if you Google that word. It is a small program that you run from a thumb drive and makes the player region free; it does not work for Blu-rays, however.DonI upgraded my home theater player to the Oppo 93 several months ago. I also have an 83 model that is modded for all region dvds. Both Oppos are mainly for blu rays but i wanted to try the HD tracks FLAC files just for fun. In my main system i am using an Olive4 music server for the hi res music which I transfer via my ethernet. But i still want physical media for the albums i download.Bob

It just hit me: when did you get an Oppo 93??? Is this something new or have you had it awhile? Anyway, welcome to the “club” and hope you are enjoying the Oppo. Glad to hear the disc worked out the way you wanted it. A Blu-ray should hold about six times as many files assuming you were using a 4.7 gb DVD and a 30 gb Blu-ray disc, but both come in several sizes, so it depends on which two you are comparing.Let me know how it works out.Don
It worked pretty well. I burned a DVD using Media Monkey. Dragged a playlist of 24/96 FLAC files...everything copied over including the album art with no issues. Played the dvd on my Oppo93 and it was fine. The Oppo will random play or play in order from your playlist once it is started. Managed to get 61 files on the DVD at 24/96. Next up, going to burn a blu ray and see how many hi res files will fit.

It probably won't autoplay, so you would have to select the disc and then scroll through the files to play the one you wanted. So although I think it will probably work, I don't think it would be the same as playing a cd or Bluray (commercial disc).

I would like some of my hi res albums to be on physical media (discs), with liner notes & pictures. Don, have you tried this?
