    I would Gareth.
    Might not be so much the case with the 205, but even Oppos are built down to a pricepoint.
    Mods like this really open up what they are capable of.
    Very worthwhile improvement.

    A very nice professional job. I am a big fan of damping material, linear power supplies and get as much Silver or silver plated wire in as is possible.

    Hi Russell,

    Not been cheap I guess, just shy of 」600 all in I think.
    The improvements up there to be seen (and heard) though, so money well spent as far as Im concerned.

    I don稚 think 」600 is bad at all! I imagined far worse. And if it moves the unit up parallel to other players costing thousands more, it can be considered a bargain.

    Id really recommend the silver wired Furutech IEC inlet as well, makes a great improvement, even with a basic mains lead.
    Run mine direct from the balanced mains, but I tried powering it with my PS Audio AC-5 lead...holy crap!
    Believe the Furutech iec removes a ‘choke point’ and lets you benefit from better cables.

    Go for it.
