String quartets/chamber music in the morning, jazz in the evening, everything else in between...

I'm running the Oppo 105 as a Redbook and SACD source and also as a DAC for a 2TB hard drive with (almost) every CD I've ever owned on it. The Oppo DAC compares very well with several mid priced DACs I've formerly used.

MJ...Thanks...Yes...I'm using the integrated taps for the top end and the Atlas for the bass. I'm toying with the idea of a tube preamp with a better phono stage to pair with the power amp, but I just put this setup together and I may just stay with the status quo for a while.


Very nice minimalist, clean looking, audiophile system. Everything is great including your vintage.
I'm assuming your integrated has preamp outs to run a power amp for bi-amping.
