I sure hope that the Ayre beats (no pun) the Oppo.
Your hope is realized.
What brand(s) of cabling are you using in your system?
fanta, if your post was addressed to me, the interconnects are Blue Jeans best; the speaker leads are Cardas Light Day. The connection from the Ayre C-5xeMP to the K-5xeMP preamp is balanced as is the connection from the preamp to the VX-5 Twenty amp. A Sony HAP-Z1ES uses the other balanced input to the preamp, so the connection from the Oppo 205 is single-ended. I hope to find a used KX-5 Twenty preamp that has more balanced inputs. For some reason, the 205 sound with Blu-rays is better than with SACDs.
