    What's Best for Redbook: Oppo BDP 95 or Mytek 192 DSD DAC

    I have the Oppo and sounds just ok with Redbook. I want to improve SQ. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
    The Mytek is in my price range.

    I have an Exempler modified Oppo and the Mytek.... Definitely the Mytek trumps the Oppo in both PCM and DSD.

    Thanks for the info, Bruce. Do you think the quality of USB or Firewire cables makes a difference?

    Think Chordette QuteHD

    I just picked up the new Chord Electronics Chordette QuteHD (quite a mouthful). I was interested in the Mytek, but no one had one in stock and I just sold my Audiolab MDAC. I read all the reviews and one item that struck me from a couple of professional reviews was the comment that the QuteHD makes redbook sound like hirez. I've been playing this machine about 6 hours and I have to say I am floored how good redbook sounds on this machine. If you don't need headphone amp and pre-amp capability, I would seriously look into this DAC as it also does DSD. Its a bit more expensive than the Mytek, but its really simple and sounds fantastic.

    Neither would be great for RBCD, but I add the caveat that my opinion is based on technology understanding and others' listening reports as I've not heard either firsthand.

    I own both (OPPO95 and the Mytek. For Redbook, can't hear any difference.
