Mmmmm. Doooooo-nut.

What wood is that? Steve's work is so tempting... I've been wanting some donuts for myself, but I need capital first.

That's Cocobolo. And I love the Red headband Rob! I was hoping you had one.

I miss them!

Very nice woodworking Steve! I'm glad to see you are marketing some of your fine work.

I wonder what they sound like with that unique shape of ear cup.

I smell an oppo in my future. I am looking at a CDP upgrade, and those look ice cold. And $169 is pocket change!

I be they are only US plugs/voltage etc...
EDIT: Found a UK dealer...

How quiet are they, transport-wise though? I tend to have to sit right near my rack, and player-noise annoys me intensely.

Hey mate. I'm also after an Oppo (a 981HD specifically), which UK dealer did you find 'em on? Was it CRT Projectors?

Thanks

In a word, amazing. Electrostatic like speed, clarity, and detail, but with deep, powerful bass.

Well, it's an IEC 3-prong input in the back (like what's in your computer PSU) and it has a 110-240V voltage range.

My new transport.

My new DAC.
Whoa! A belated "very nice work!", Nate. I guess I was part-correct in my guess .

I'd be really jealous, but my Modwright finally came in today. So begins the burn-in...

Accidentally (read "intentionally") break the old Oppo.
post #5441 of 6020
hmm why break it when you can just 'accidentally' ship the old oppo to me?

You were, I had to use my best lawyer speak to answer-not-answer your guess and buy myself more time!

Ah, sounds like you are enjoying it a lot. That's great to hear.

Well, my rig has drastically changed this Spring/Summer. As usual the L3000, Qualia 010, and old-chassis SDS are still very much at home here, and are here to stay. However they're not in these pics; just the new-ish stuff

The newest arrival:


The current setup:


Devil music spinnin'
Oh yeah, I picked up a set of HD650 this summer too (2nd time owner)

That sounds like it's even better than a Darth Elite! Blasphemy!

Very quiet. I can't hear any transport noise (CD spinning, seeking, clicking, or what have you) at all when I'm listening to my Grado's. Even with the headphones off they're dead slient. I really really think that Oppo's are under-rated and a great bang for the buck!

Glad that Nate and I can refresh the Curse to unbearable levels.
