My Oppo 105 finally bricked. Streamer suggestions?


Hey all,

Well, my vaunted 105 now won’t connect to Tidal through the app no matter what troubleshooting I do, and since my listening is 40% vinyl, 50% streaming, and 10% cd, I’m losing out on a lot of music. I’d like to keep the Oppo as a the occasional transport but need something to stream Tidal.

I can still connect via HDMI to to the Oppo from my phone or laptop, but the sound is terrible. 

My digital system:

Ragnarok 2 integrated

Denafrips Ares 2 DAC/Schiit Gungnir (currently comparing them side-by-side)

Reference 3A de Capos

Oppo 105 (still can be used as a transport and blu-ray)

 

Suggestions for a streamer that would work well with the Denafrips? Budget under $1K.

Thank you,

simao

Bluesound Node N130, $600.  For the money it can’t be beat!  Mine’s plugged into a Pontus ll via USB.

I dread the day my 10 + year old BD105 Blu-ray player dies I like using it for my two channel stereo rig as  I have a VAC tube amp and ARC LS15 tube pre amp so no sub out  I use the OPPO RCA sub out into a Y connector to my two SVS Ultra 13 subs  I've bypassed the OPPO DAC and use my Exogal Comet plus external DAC  Because I use the Oppo DSP I run my Audiolab 6000n streamer into the OPPO then to my DAC  I control volume and all my sub settings, plus streaming from my smartphone

Are you planning to move away from the Oppo for use with Tidal completely? Do you have an IPad? I know the Tidal situation is bunk now as far as the Oppo is concerned but I’m wondering if you’ve tried setting up an IPad or phone with a media center app and pushing the content to the Oppo- using it as a renderer?

Look at a Magna Mano Ultra MK3. I have one (using Volumio) and LOVE it. I think that it can be had for right around 1k.
