I currently have an Anthem D2 processor with an Oppo BDP-83 blueray player, which I play my music CDs on. I'm considering upgrading my Oppo to the new BDP-103 or 105 and are getting varying opinions on the 2 Oppos.
Some people tell me that the DACs in my Anthem D2 processor are superior to the DACs in the Oppo 105, therefore, I would not gain any advantage in purchasing the BDP-105 over the 103, because I would be using my Anthem DACs anyway. Other people tell me that the Oppo BDP-105 DACs are better than those that are in my Anthem D2 and I would see a considerable audio improvement with the Oppo 105.
Question: Are the Anthem DACs superior to the BDP-105 DACs? And, if not, then I believe I'm just as well purchasing the Oppo BDP103, because it is my understanding the main difference in these two units is the audio quality.
Other equipment I'm using in my setup: Paradigm Signature 6 speakers, Bryston Amp & a Rotel Amp.
