Having just bought the NAC 272 to primarily play my ripped FLAC files (currently all 16 bit 44 khz from my cd collection), I am keen to eventually explore the 24 bit remixes and also 5.1 surround sound files that are on many blu ray discs. These are becoming more common, particularly from Steven Wilson, with many of my favourite artists working with him on remasters/5.1 mixes etc.
As yet I don't have a Blu ray player or a surround sound set up but it is something that I am hoping to buy eventually.
I saw Adam Zielenski's comments about the Oppo 105 here: http://forums.naimaudio.com/to...lu-ray-player?page=3
Does anyone know if the Oppo can be played through one of the NAC 272's inputs? I assume it can, and I imagine it is preferable to use the Oppo's internal DAC and so output to the 272 in analogue rather than HDMI.
The alternative, at least for playing his res 24 bit FLAC files is to rip these files from the Blu Ray disc using software such as DVD Audio Extractor. But this won't allow me to access the 5.1 mixes obviously and so I am thinking a Blu Ray player like one of the Oppo's is the way to go for me.
I would be grateful for any thoughts or advice. Thanks.
