    Looks a well made board, it's a such a shame that Oppo have dropped out of the disk spinner market. Their products were/are very popular, it just doesn't make sense. It's a bit Like when Logitech dropped their popular streamers.

    Its a difficult one isn't it?

    Oppo have said (basically) that once their 4K players were out that was that for them.
    I know the Blu-ray players were a smaller part of their overall business?

    I've done a few worthwhile mods to my player, if it's Oppo's last hurrah I want to get it as good as possible.
    The thought with the i2s board is to get (at least on paper!) a cheaper version of PS Audio's Directstream memory player.
    Don't expect it to near as good but should sound pretty respectable.

    Not really a CD spinner nowadays, but the improvements in bluray audio and as a Roon endpoint over i2s make it worth it to me.

    '103(D)' should I to read that as supports the 103 and 103D or 103D only?

    I read it as the 103(D) only, and could make sense given the D has an extra board for the Darbee processing.
    Perhaps this affects the HDMI connectivity somehow?
    Dunno.

    Thanks I may do that - but I suspect your interpretation is correct.
