Look at avsforums for the dedicated Oppo 203 thread?

I have had my fully modified Oppo UDP-205 for some time.  I have gone through the ModWright modified Oppo ladder.
I must say that this player is phenomenal...both as a player and a DAC (Nakamichi 1000 mb transport).
I have enjoyed both CD's and CDR's.  Great balance, excellent 3d soundstage, and musically satisfying.  Dan and his team continue to amaze me.  The modifications are of excellent quality.  His support staff is exemplary (thanks Kristin).  I have not compared it to the mega bucks players, but I feel I don't need to.
If NFS Audio ever does a show again, we will certainly use this player.  For now, I'll be enjoying it at home.
Thanks, ModWright!

Thanks Mike!  I agree that it is THE BEST mod that we have produced to date.  Specifically, it is more live, dynamic and resolving than the previous 105/105D mods.

I appreciate your support and feedback!

Any idea how many more Oppo 205's you can modify with parts on hand?

We have plenty of parts for the mods, that is not an issue.  It is just a matter of how many Oppo's are in circulation.

Most of the time, people simply send us the UDP-205.  We buy them and modify them for use at shows and sell them as demo's.  However, the typical case is for people to send us their UDP-205 for us to provide mods.

The PCBs and all parts that we use for the mod are all readily available and not a limiting factor.

Thanks,

Dan

The DAC on the UDP 205 with Dan's Mod makes it a true workd class DAC comparing to the Chord DAVE which is over 12K the  modded Oppo never embarrasses itself.  People will miss Oppo legendary status of designing the best players in their price range for 14 years. I am glad I hav one of Dan's player and regularly use it as my reference DAC and player for reviews of headphones and other resources. If you own an Oppo UDP 205 get it modded as it will take you to the top of heap in sound quality. I love the tube compliment as well. I am using the Genelex 6922 and after rolling the rectifier tubes I love the stock Sovtex bass  better than other sos it remains my tube of choice

Thanks Frank! The UDP-205 is our finest mod achievement and it is hard to see Oppo make the decision that they have.

However, we still have a great circuit design and it will be used for another mod and/or product.  I am working on a number of ideas!
