So are the Modwright “Truth” modifications to Oppo’s BDP-105 player worth the cost and the risk? The answer to that question is a resounding, “Yes!” The build-quality is exemplary and the sonics are exceptional. It is the first digital player I have had in my listening room that didn’t make me want to go back to my analog rig right away, and that’s because it sounds so much like analog in many respects, without giving up the bass extension and control, clarity, fine detail resolution and retrieval, and convenience that can make digital so attractive. With outstanding sonics that can make you forget you’re listening to digital, and its remarkable flexibility and compatibility when playing discs from a player or a computer-audio setup, I suspect this is one universal player that you’ll be hanging on to for a long time. While I’m unwilling to abandon my analog rig, I can see why others, like Arnie, have chosen to do take this path, particularly when one feeds the Modwright-Oppo first-rate, high-resolution source material. The Modwright Oppo is now my digital reference.
