Primary used as a CD/SACD player only, but i a Blue-ray multi-format disc player. 
It has the latest  SABRE 32 bit (DAC) chip, Balanced with outputs as well as TCA's  and RCA, i used a monitor and HDMI initially to see the Disc and settings i used the app also, however, monitor was better. in settings designate which your using PCM etc Oppo has great customer support, 6SN7 driver tubes will last many many years   The CD best digital player that I have ever heard until I  jumped to a DCS Rossini Player, hoping it will be my final digital Destination. My loss your gain!
 It is the closest thing other than the DCS I have heard to a high-end CD (15K and up), There really isn't much in it and to be honest for the amount of money i had to spend to get the slight gain in detail and dynamics..law of diminishing return...my lose your gain!.
Superlative to the Modwright version. These  Modded 205's are a rare find on used Audio classifieds
Even though Oppo has shut down after 14 years on April 2nd, 2018. Technical support will continue to be available. Please visit the product support page on the OPPO Digital web site (https://www.oppodigital.com/Support.aspx) for self-guided support, and use the following contact form to submit your customer service request: https://www.oppodigital.com/ContactUs.aspx Oppo will also continue to receive firmware upgrades from time to time when new features or bug fixes warrant such an upgrade. Newer products such as the UDP-203 and UDP-205 will likely receive more frequent upgrades
The 205 has all the mods of the highly regarded  105. In addition, there were upgrades to many of the analog sections and improvements to the clocking. The very latest SABRE chip made a huge improvement as well because 
-Original analog output stage completely removed. replaced with Vaccum tubes -Proprietary shunt regulation added feeding 9018 DAC chip -Signal taken directly off of 9018 DAC chip and routed through high-quality film capacitors to inputs of new tube analog stage. -2 stage direct coupled analog tube stage with actively loaded low impedance output stage installed. -Outputs through high-quality film capacitors and wired with long crystal copper wiring. -Proprietary shunt regulators located on new tube analog board and right next to each channel of the analog stage for high voltage. -Fully regulated filaments. -All new resistors 1% metal film. -External PS with custom mu-metal shielded power transformers and power supply board mounted directly to the transformer. -Fully shielded umbilical

Questions for the seller
Are the analog mods just for stereo output (which, unfortunately for me, I believe is the case), or applied to the 5.1 channels? Thanks, TMW
