    The NADAC appears to be aimed at networked systems in which I have absolutely zero interest.
    The exasound e38 is an excellent piece of hardware. Since I have it in place I havent used a dicsplayer at all. The oppo 105 has been removed from my system.

    Your reply and Brian's are both helpful, but...

    I spent 95% of my working life implementing computer systems and I really would like to keep them out of my music at home. The idea of a client-server environment in the music room makes me wince!

    I was hoping that the Oppo could be used just as a disc transport / media handler with full multi-channel digital output capability that can be fed into such as the e38.

    The e38's role would be sort of parallel with the role of the phono stage that goes between the record player and the preamplifier - a Parasound P7, which is 100% analogue and actually has 2 sets of multi-channel inputs.

    Would the Oppo BDT-101ci be the beast that I am seeking?

    That player is only available through Custom AV Installers.
    Here's an info sheet from Oppo on how it compares to their 103 and 105 universal disc players.

    The Oppo 105 can still be useful to transfer DSD audio from SACDs to DSF music files to playback on your exaSound e38 Multichannel DAC.
    That's what I'm finding these days. So it still has a place in my system. Along with playing movies in the red envelopes from Netflix.

    Best sound quality results are when you play the DSD music files on the Surround Sound DAC vs. the Oppo 105.
    Looks like you have come to the same conclusion!

    You cannot send multichannel output from the Oppo to the e38 but you can connect the 7.1 analog output from each to them to inputs on the P7. That means you are not using the digital output of the Oppo.
