Ran both AV and 2 Channel in same room, removed AV to pick up better sound quality on 2 Channel

Now run Oppo to TV with Apple TV into Oppo HDMI IN

Oppo to 2 Channel, PreAmp has pass through

This turned into an unrealized benefit - sound is so much better than before, imaging of center channel is amazing and sound quality from my left and right speakers can’t be compared.

For my Oppo 205, I connect HDMI to my JVC 4k projector for video and 6 RCA interconnects from the 205 to my MX136 in external mode for 5.1 audio. I do like this combination.

We also use the OPPO 205. I prefer the simplest set up possible, so the OPPO outputs go directly to a multi-channel ATI amplifier (5.1, two REL subs). This all works well. I do use the balanced outs to the main left/right speakers for 2 channel audio.
Some comments:
- the balanced outs are 6 dB 'hot' compared to the unbalanced outs (twice the voltage). This can be trimmed by the amplifier gain setting or trimmed by the OPPO settings as needed.
-yes, lip synch can be an issue. it can vary by source. Mostly it works very well.
- I run everything through the OPPO which has only one HDMI put (my biggest gripe with this unit). I do use a simple HDMI switch to manage this. Thus all video processing goes through the OPPO.

- there is a very active '205 forum with a couple of super-users on AVS forums. Much detail there. May have to hunt a bit.

My Oppo is connected to the TV via HDMI for video only.

I use the optical audio out to the processor as my MX135 does not support HDMI.

I also use the Oppo as a CD spinner and connect the Oppo FR & FL analog RCA outputs to the MX135.
