For BluRay and 4k movies I only use the 205. Either lets me play 5.1 video concerts. For 2 channel CD/SACD I prefer a dedicated stereo player over either of the Oppo's. Oppo was a fantastic value for many years and I am sorry to see them go.
I realize that I will need probably another player for SACD, but it is much more expensive.

I ordered 205 for a while, waiting news from sellers. They've offered good discount - 363 USD. New device, packed.

If you want SACD/DVDA/BD Pure Audio playback and donít want to pay crazy money for the Oppo 205 now, get the Pioneer LX500.

Imho the AKM4490 sounds better than the Sabre32 9038Pro.

There is also the LX800, but that one is double the price.

You can update the software all you want (so far). It doesn't affect this function.
