OPPO 105 connections to Denon AVR4308a

Morning All,

I will imminently be replacing my Denon 2500BT with the OPPO105.  I notice that my amp has the prerequisite terminals for making use of the excellent DAC in the OPPO.  Do I need "special" cables for this or will the bog standard red & white RCA leads do?  Is there any benefit from getting better cables?

Following excellent advice from the guys over on the computery type thingy forum I am now the proud owner of an Apple TV3, which is most excellent!  Should I wire this through the OPPO too?

Many thanks.

Cam.

I have five pairs of qed analogues from my oppo into my avr/intergrated.

I would say that the apple tv would connect to the port at the back for using the 105 as a dac,you need a usb A(male)+B(male)cable.

Thanks GSB. Do you notice a dsitinct improvement in the QED leads compared to the std red &white cables?  How much were they?

Thanks

Red & White are purely for identification nothing more. (They do not indicate a standard of cable)

Unless you are using long runs, then so long as the cables are of decent quality (Not flimsy or cheap plugs) then there will be no difference in the sound, so don’t waste money on expensive cables.

Hope this helps

Mark Grant have a decent offering of cables for stereo and multichannel connections see here

GSB, it sounds like you are saying the QED cables came with the OPPO, is this correct..
