Title: Oppo 205 S/PDIF 96/24 question
Post by: noam on June 13, 2021, 12:13:17 AM
My Oppo 205 does not output 96kHz/24-bit through the coaxial output - it down-samples it to 48/16.

My old Oppo 93 does output 96/24.

Is this by design? I tried every setting in the menu, it still won't output 96/24. It outputs 96/24 for the first split second of playback, then switches to 48/16.

My 93 is connected to the 205 via HDMI's. The 205 does output from the coax 96/24 it gets from the 93, but when I put the same 96/24 disc in the 205 it outputs only 48/16.

pg 60 of the manual:

Thank you.

That's really sad. After using the Oppo 205 in this configuration 205>monoblocks through XLR's>speakers for 3 years, I realized (measured) that the 205's DAC/preamp is a POS that doesn't output (Through XLR's) deep bass or more than 11kHz. I inserted the  RME Signal Converter (ADI-2 DAC FS) between the Oppo and the monoblocks - so much better.

So the 205 isn't even useful as a transport.

Is there a blu-ray player that outputs 96/24 via S/PDIF?
