Can I use the HDMI Out (Audio Only) on an OPPO UDP-203 universal disk player to connect to one my DirectStream DAC’s I2S in… this would be to get the audio from a Blu-Ray or DVD while watching the video on my TV via the OPPO’s main HDMI out.
The Oppo HDMI output(s) is utilized for connection to a television, or HDMI capable AVR. The DS DAC input is I2s over HDMI. Same cable, different connection system. You would connect the Oppo to your DAC using SPDIF or toslink optical.
Thanks for the clarification, much appreciated!
