    It looks like cable interfacing and impedance is sorted, Gaz.
    Just keep the cable as short as possible, and the shorter the better.

    Some more tinkering...
    Opened up the Oppo again after fitting the Linear PSU?


    Decided to put some vibration deadening material on the chassis? Started with the Transport itself?

    Given I'd put a linear PSU in there, better check for height clearance...
    Looks a bit high...


    Thinking about putting damping material (which is 4m thick) on the Transport AND the underside of the lid, best to check for clearance...
    Yup, cant put damping material on both the transport and the underside of the case lid, need to cut out where it doubles up...

    While I was working that out, the bits of the internal PCB that I couldn't access I damped from the other side...the bottom of the chassis, making sure the ventilation holes weren't coverered.

    All that exposed aluminium foil I wasnt happy with...ok for the underside but not internally (RFI/EMF...dunno?) so decided to cover the damping material in electrical tape, isolating any potential...whatever?
