People in the industry (mostly retired people) use me when its time to ditch the awards presented to them during their careers. Ive also cleaned out most of the Record Company's in NYC going back to the late 80's. Before that they just threw these things out believe it or not. You would love the Supertramp Gold I just got in for "Quietest Moments" presented to Geoff Emerick who was the Sound Engineer on that album...and he worked with the Beatles.

So do you buy them? Sell them? Collect them? Do you get paid for some service?

Keep the ones I want (Late 60's thru early 80's) and ditch the rest to the people on my FB page or auction houses. Nobody pays me for any service. It's just another music related hobby...you cant make a living from it as there isn't enough supply. I average about 300 a year.

I guess it's a case of price == performance.
The statement the the Oppo-205 is a "toy" is patently ridiculous and arrogant.
I haven't argued crap like this in years.
I have no issue with people who have the desire and disposable income to spend whatever they fancy on gear.
It's your money.
Just don't think I grant you any superior points for doing so or believe that it is superior in any way except cost.
The self-satisfied attitude is is obnoxious & fake.
Tell your pals over the glass of red wine that you found in a Spanish Galleon.
Personally I don't GAF

Well, mostly I agree with you. But you didn't properly quote the post that so offends you so I guess I will have to leave it at that.

Anything piece of equipment that is stereo only is not worth consideration.
Just to follow up, at least most of these two channel DACs aren't priced like some over priced, high end CD players. What a total waste of cash.

That's the problem Owen, no one seems to be offering the Oppo 205 at a sane price. The fancier of the two Reavons may be their only alternative if they want a machine in this configuration with analog outputs.

It was not until I started getting into SACD and the DSD format I started seeing weakness in my pc. My wife had a Sony BD player that we bought six years ago and I found that it had a lovely dac chip in it and played SACD so that started me looking at the OPPO ..wow the price has skyrocketed.!!I am at a real weird place where I am wondering if my days of chasing media need to stop because I had many chances to buy a sanely priced OPPO before.
