WANTED: Oppo has started shipping the last batch of 205's for $1299. If someone doesn't want to take theirs, or can't use it anymore, I'd be glad to step in for you at retail. Or if someone is willing to sell one in good condition for a non inflated price... Check my references here and at Audiogon, Audiomart, Audio Circle, Audio Asylum, ebay (genegold99). Thanks,

Bad luck. I have a modified 203, so I can live with it well enough for now, though a lot more can be done with a 205. Have to wait for the new Pioneer to come out and draw off some of the market, along with the boom market to end. In the meantime, beware of the $500 specials posted here and there. They are Nigerian scams.

I've got a 203 as well, no mods though .. if I cant get one I'll build a Twisted Pear ESS 9038 based DAC... the TPA DAC is probably better anyway in all honesty...

Wasn’t aware of that DIY, although my full on DIY days are behind me. I run the 203’s audio through a Directstream dac. The 203 mod I have was done by Stere Dave’s ($395) and it’s a good one, with a nice warm, liquid sound. There’s also the Oppomod upgrades, which are reportedly very good.
