Playback Designs D/D Converter
Most people consider digital playback to be sonically inferior to analog playback, whether tape or vinyl. Playback Designs wanted to match or better the critical areas where they felt analog had superior advantages without losing the benefits of great digital playback. The new Sonoma series consists of 4 products that take the meaning of "Swiss Army Knife" to a whole new level, because there is no physical media or file format that could not be played on this system. Even analog sources can be converted to high resolution digital and then be played back.
The OpBox Modification Kit can be installed in any Oppo103 player to provide supporting all native formats that can be played on this player, including SACD. It connects directly via PLink ST optical to the Merlot DAC for native conversion to analog.
