Why can't you order directly from Oppo USA? Will it be cheaper even after customs fees?
I worked this out when the HA1 was released and I could have saved about £200 including VAT and admin fees so if you are in no rush that's the way to go. Me personally? I knew a UK supplier who had a limited stock being delivered pretty much day of release. So I bit the bullet! It was worth the extra cash and more.
If you don't have a local supplier, you may as well buy direct and save some cash....
Great to hear and good for your ears.
One of the engineers told me that for the BDP-105/D and the HA-1 the stereo single-ended and XLR outputs are 100 ohm. I'll make any edits if the senior engineers have any corrections.
I don't wanna buy it from out EU because warranty
-PS: sleepy, dunno if that was properly wrote-.
Crappy iPad photos. However the new stand.
Usually the balanced output impedance should be higher than the single-ended (sometimes by as much as a factor of three). 100 ohms sounds reasonable for single-ended, but it sounds way too low for a balanced output. If you could please ask the senior-engineers to verify, I would really appreciate it. Thanks for your help!
Quoting my own question, I've come across a review (the only one I could find) that was somewhat critical and thought it was worth sharing :
Confirmed that the XLR and single-ended outputs on the HA-1 are 100 ohm.
I would agree with some comments. I find the HA-1 extremely neutral. Not exciting. I had a Arcam drDac prior to this. It was a lot warmer. Which I like. However I think this was Oppo's design idea. Go neutral. People can colour the sound with whatever cans suit their taste. It kinda makes sense.
Just picked this up and I really like it. Has enough power and my hd 600s sound really good and the he 500s are driving nice. Great sound!
Got mine today also, and I have to recommend you get a balanced cable for the 600 if you're not already doing so. It's another level getting the full power from the balanced headphone out. Nothing too fancy with cables on my end, I'm using the re-terminated 650 cable from headroom.
Yea, I need to do that! Just ordered balance cable for 500s and I can't wait hear if there is a difference!
