I just received my units today in good order. Thanks again to everyone in ModWright camp.
Funny, but I've always thought that your tube modded Oppo player would be powered solely by the PS 9.0 unit via umbilical. I found out I was mistaken when I couldn't turn the player on without plugging the power cord normally as well.
1. Do we strictly have to wait 45 seconds after powering up the PS and all tubes before turning the Oppo on?
2. Can the player operate if we forget to switch on the PS 9.0?
3. Is there suppose to be a LED to indicate that the PS 9.0 is operating? The unit I got has a hole in the front panel above the "PS 9.0" screening.
As for the power consumptions, I gauged them roughly through my power conditioner / voltage stabilizer whose display shows power output in Amps. When the PS 9.0 is switched on, it draws about 0.2 amps. When the BDP-95 is turned on, it draws another 0.1 amp. But when I checked the power consumption spec in Oppo manual, it says 45 Watts. So if the PS 9.0 and al the tubes draw roughly twice as much, they should use around 90 Watts. My guess is altogether both the player and PS would consume about 135 Watts. Have you had time to make the measurement yet?
