    I've in the past thought a Oppo was a worth while investigation to achieve a multi media set up at home.
    The HD TV, is 14 years old now, so a modern TV, is on the horizon.
    My digital media experiences as seen on our TV, is achieved through a download to a laptop and then the laptop is connected by HDMI to the TV.
    How does the Sony model, make the user interface a improved experience
    This model is a much cheaper alternative to a Oppo, it looks like it can be used as a CD Transport as well,
    as I've got a want to have a CDT with the new recently purchased DAC, this seems to be worth a punt,
    as it has all the other benefits of usage as well.
    The DAC in use, has USB and Digital Coax Connection only, so I will need to check out connections are compatible.
    Can the 4TB Passport Portable HD, with a FLAC File Storage, be connected to it, so it can be used as a alternative to a computer to replay music files or TV media. ?
    How can a device like this be used to support a venture into Digital Music replays in a HiFi system and the beginnings of a AV system ?

    Brilliant !, it ticks all of the boxes as it has Digital Coax, and Parental Control to lock the better half out
    Joking put aside, it offers a multi usage format, that when one method of usage is obsolete, it will still have a relevant purpose for other applications.
    I am closer to getting a trial period put into place with a Music Replay Software.
    I was also advised recently to consider listening to a modern media player, such as a DVD/BluRay, as a CDT, as there has been much engineering thought put into the stability of the disc drives.

    IME it's pot luck as regards to that. I've got a Samsung Blu-Ray player and as a CD transport it's diabolical. Performance of a transport depends on how much noise it generates and passes on to the external DAC. A good transport will have had attention paid to the power supplies so that doesn't happen. Most of these mass-market media players will not have had any of that, the power supply will be the bare minimum required to do the job.

    I can recommend the Oppos as being pretty good used as a CD player through their analogue outputs though.
