Now I'm really confused. You are recommending pairing the CXUHD transport with either the CXA-60 or CXA-80 for Oppo-equivalent features and performance? While the CXUHD supports up to 24/192 PCM and DSD, and the drive is capable of reading DVD-Audio, SACD, and Blu-Ray, it appears that it only outputs those formats and highest audio resolutions via HDMI ... and the CXA series doesn't have an HDMI input ... ! So doesn't the CXUHD + CXA combo limit the user to 2-channel stereo redbook compact disc and standard DVD? Hardly a viable Oppo alternative for those who are interested in most of Oppo's features, rather than just a few. And if you're only looking for 2-channel redbook CD performance, why buy all the extra features (including video circuitry!) of the CXUHD transport; wouldn't a dedicated 2-channel CD transport + integrated amplifier combo be much more cost-effective and capable of even greater performance heights?
