I felt the 3 dimensional space of musical sources.
it was not the case with Bifrost without Uber upgrade, which was once my savior of Mahler symphony 8.
The symphony requires high definition to represents 1000 men and women choirs and extended orchestra with adding pipe organs for example.
With 105, it seemed to carry me to real concert hall.
However BDP-105 seemed to transport another level with liquidity and musicality.
it forgave much lower quality recording down to 256 rate as usual itune source.
Another noticeable improvement is the SQ of wind instrument when it plays back Wagner Prelude of Tristan und Isolde, which was so sweet to my ears.
Only complaint is that the display as computer monitor is not as clear as the intrinsic video driver of my computer. It displays small character with tint of color combination that is supposed to be black color.
I will test more for the SQ with respect to aging and other genre of music.
Maybe My trusted Bifrost can have chance through Uber upgrade, and actually I already had the upgrade board but no time to install it.
