I would sell the DP-85, take the money for the DC-37 and would go for a DP-550 or a used DP-7xx.

I have a chance to buy a DC-37 but little chance of listening to one before hand.
I current have an Accuphase DP-77, is the upgrade worth it?

I could sell the DP-77 and use my Oppo BD player, is that a viable option too?

After selling the DP-77, the DC-37 would work out quite reasonable priced (for me)

I can answer my question.
I got to audition a DC-37 yesterday and compare it to my DP-77
It was no contest
A guitar on the DP-77 sounded like something really cheap and nasty, on the DC-37 it was a beautiful Guild
Air and space was missing on the DP-77 which the DC-37 had in abundance.
Cymbals sounded like cymbals
Instruments could be heard in their own space
You could hear the room the recording was made in
I won't go on any more but the DC-37 sounded great!!!

I can't wait for it to be ordered and delivered. I'll find out next week how long the wait will be.

I don't own a DO2-HS1 card for my DP-77 so I'm a bit stuck getting the DC-37 to play DSD layers of SACDs
I could use my Oppo BD player and use a HDMI de-embedder connected to the DC-37 but I think I'd rather use the HS-Link.
Would the HS-Link allow me to play the DSD layer?
Where can I get one of these DO2-HS1 cards?

Thanks,
Terry

Some Oppo players (103D) can be upgraded with a digital board that can play DSD over spdif, I am in the process of ordering one myself (Audiopraise Vanity HD DSD)

Thanks.
This unit will take the DSD from the HDMI on the Oppo and send an DSD output over spif
I did check with their designer.
There are other HDMI de-embedders available
Evolve® HDMI DAC - Essence For High Res Audio

I have the Oppo 83 which isn't covered by Audiopraise mods
BTW The DC-37 doesn't handle DSD over spdif, only through USB or HS Link, so you would have to get the Oppo to convert DSD to PCM.
I think that the Audiopraise is doing the same (obviously, you don't then need a de-embedder)

I still fancy the idea of the Accuphase HD-Link though

I just purchased the DC-37 and been in my Accuphase system for about a week. Sounds great with the 3850 and the A-70. I run mostly computer files and have a old NAD CD transport. Considering finding a used Accuphase sACD transport so I can utilize the HS-Link. Has anyone listened to the DC37 connected via the HS-Link to a Accuphase CD transport. Will the sound be similar to a DP-720 since the DC37 DAC components are identical? Which used CD transport would you recommend?

According to the dealer:
HS-Link is the best way to connect to it
The DC-37 sounds better than the DP-720 - they are NOT the same
Any Accuphase player with HS-Link output

I'm looking for a second hand DO2-HS1 so I'll be able to confirm if I ever find one

BTW
I listened to the only DC-27 in the UK and I'm the 1st person to buy one!
