I used to have a 980 and the BDP-83 kills it. Let me think about it. If I choose to try the Piano I will give an unbiased review between the two. From what I can tell from you other products, it's going to be a review worth doing. The Oppo BDP-83 was reviewed by several heavy hitters and was given the class as best in price range. I'd like to test them in my treated room and see if you can topple the Oppo of it's pedistal. zman
I don't know if it would be fair to test the 83-se to the Piano. The 83se costs over $300 more and it has 4 saber dacs per channel (8)total. If you were doing a test on cd players under a thousand dallars then it would be a great test. The Oppo BDP-83 against the Piano would be a fair test. Both within $100 of each other and niether has the saber dac. Seth, send me a Piano to test out for a head to head against the Oppo BDP-83. And while you in such a generous mood pick up a 83-se and send it too. I'll be glad to test them both out.
I made my own. Two 12v 8amp hr batteries and ordered the charger from ebay. $60 for batteries and charger. You need to know how to connect a system to do your own. I got the batteries from Batteries ASAP. Went to radioshack and picked up the wire and connectors and soldered everything together. It was incredible at the sonic differance it made. I had bought a Acoustic Research power cord for the 30v 90watt power supply and that was a great differance. But when I went batteriy powered it pushed the little Two
Here is how to connect 4 12V batteries to get a 24v source (actual voltage for optimal usage range between approx 25 and 28 volts). Either method shown will give you an in-series, in-parallel combination that will give you the 24V nominal output. This is how the GR research kit is connected. Simply connect the load (virtue amp or charger) to contacts marked "24 volt positive lead" and "24 volt negative lead"Diagram courtesy of OverlandResource.com:If only using two batteries, as in zmanastronomy's setup (a single in-series connection), simply connect the positive terminal of the first battery to the negative terminal of the second. Then, similar to the above diagram, connect the load (virtue amp or charger) to the negative terminal of the first battery and the positive terminal of the second. Connect the positive (usually red) terminal of the second battery the the positive lead on the charger and the negative terminal (usually black) of the first battery to the negative lead of the charger.
Well it looks like I thanked the right person after all. I'm getting old and get confused somtimes. Thanks to both who add diagrams.
