I have gone through all of the reviews now. Am I right? By the way, If I want to get the airplay feature, I have two options:1, use HDMI cable to connect the Apple tv with oppo 205; 2, use the raspberrypi with moode audio system, and connect the oppo 205 with it using usb cable. Which one do you think is better?
Thank you very much.

It is the best measuring one right now assuming you can buy one.

I just did a few tests and I was surprised to see the USB port performing better than HDMI and SPDIF. This is preliminary data though. Assuming both options are just as good, I would opt for USB.

UDP-205 (Universal Disc Player), and I think all of the last batch were sold but you can check the Oppo site and/or see if some dealers still have stock.
