is oppo only bluray w/ hdmi in, stereo analog out?
To my understanding, the best Oppo players for the 2 channel analog audio are the 83-SE / 95 / 105.Unless I'm missing something, the 2Channel sound using the analog outputs on my 83-SE sounds a minimum 150% better in every way...clarity, sound Sep...

B&W 802 Diamond or 800 Nautilus
The 800n is much fuller in bass & mid. The D tweeter is a little better to my ears. I have the 800ns & have directly compared them to the 800ds, with the Ns winning hands down (to my ears). IMHO, no comparison to any of the 802 models.
