Also considering the Oppo95, both for CDs (analogue out) and BDs (HDMI to TV, analogue to stereo-amp). Music is by far most important, though (say music/movies = 95/5).
Now, I was told (didn't get to checking myself yet) that universal players are noisier than dedicated CDPs, and load slower. Would you consider that relevant disadvantages of the Oppo?
The preacher asked her. She said: "I do". The preacher asked me. She said: "Yes, he does too!".
I've never owned or demoed a standalone CDP (except at sound & vision shows) so cannot comment on comparison. I didn't find the Oppo 95 noisy at all, nor did I find it slow. It's best to demo it yourself & see what you think.
