post #46 of 1357

That's the upgraded power supply, for the Modwright Oppo 95 with the tube mod. The do SS-only mods as well, more here:

The Modwright modifocations are based on the Oppo BDP-95 and the discontinued BDP-83/83SE. I emailed Modwright inquiring about the feasibility of modifying the BDP-93 and received the following response:

 

 

Hi John,
 
I am sorry, we do not perform mods on the Oppo BDP-93.  The circuitry of the Oppo 83SE and Oppo 95 are completly different from the Oppo 93, so it is not something that can be adjusted and used for the Oppo 93.
 
 
Thanks,
 
Kristin Boyd

Consequently, anyone seeking to modify the Oppo BDP-95 must absorb the $1300 cost for the Blu-ray disk player plus the Modwright modifications costs.

Yes, I am aware of the BDP-83 mods. However, that would necessitate buying a used BDP-83 or used modded BDP-83. I don't know if I would be excited about getting even a modded BDP-95 even if I was willing to spend that kind of money. I am much more of an audio lover at this point. It seems much more flexible and technically cleaner to get a high end DAC (e.g., the D2) and use it with a video|audio transport.

I only see a few new pictures, not specs, no design notes.

As with the D1, I somewhat find the case too tall, it always seemed to me that the D1 could have been a slimmer model and that half the case was empty.

It is still being updated so check back later for the rest of the info.

 

You will get your wish as far as size - the D2 has similar width but is smaller in height and depth. I'm not sure exactly how much smaller, but James made it sound like a noteworthy reduction in size.

Nice!, although we can stand to see the details. It's convenient for them to separate the D2 upgrade from the USB upgrade, so those who don't need the latter can keep that off the buying list.

 

EDIT: Okay, now that more details have been posted, the USB upgrade is included with the D2 and also  appears to be made available for previous D1 buyers. The D2 price is still a little less than that of the Lavry DA11.

 

It may be awhile before I get one, but it can easily be an audio solution for high end stereo or home video systems.

Website is updated now.

The D2 vs. the Calyx would be a very interesting fight. Same XMOS USB chip, same drivers, same Sabre DAC, very similar features apart from the headphone amp, and the price is close enough not to matter.

Spec comparison between the D1 and the D2: essentially the same.

It would have been nice if they beefed up the head amp to full output of those National chips...

post #58 of 1357

Seriously considering this. I wonder how the DAC compares to others such as the likes of the Zodiac Gold and Invicta.

Is 5.3 Vrms not enough for you?

Nope.  Not after I turn the LFE channel up 15dB in my 5.1 to binaural DSP with my modded T50RPs.

 

I know that because 5.3VRMS just happens to be almost exactly what my O2 puts out right now.  It gets a bit louder than I need right now but my T50RPs are probably going to get even less efficient after I get around to trying more aggressive damping schemes so I could use a little more power.  When I build the ODA I'm going to make sure it gets the full 7VRMS.  I hope I can keep it within the O2's capabilities when combined with my movie EQ
