JLTI Oppo Upgrades
THE REVIEWS JUST
KEEPS COMING IN !!!
I have been listening to the JLTi Oppo Blu-Ray BDP
105 Level 3 since Saturday night.
What a Universal player !!!!! No single words can not describe about this
player JLTi Oppo Level 3.
I am sitting there listening to CD after CD, Flac files after Flac files,
tracks after tracks, mesmerising by the beautiful organic sound, every
little tiny details never heard previously, the sound stage is just there
naturally. I have Celine Dion, Diana Krall, David Sanborn singing or
playing live to me privately in my own audio room.
This is the sound achieved while still connected to my old Krell
Integrated amplifier KAV 300i and my old pair of Floor standing M5 Tannoy.
My sytem just sound completely different after switching to the Oppo Blu-Ray
BDP 105 level 3.
Last night, my friend who owns the Meridian 808 CD player tells me in his
own words that he has never heard anything like it, that is the sound
coming the Oppo Blu-Ray BDP 105 level 3. He feels that he has been
ripped off after purchasing the Meridian CD player 808.
To all Audiophiles out there, you do not know what you are missing out on
if you don't own this Oppo Blu-Ray BDP 105 Level 3 by Joe Rasmussen.
Thank you , Joe. I feel very lucky to have met you while we are all still
alive. I am in Nirvana audio heaven.
Will keep you posted for more revelations.
I unfortunately went away on the weekend but I kept the Oppo  on
repeat while I was away. I got home Sunday afternoon and I was ready for a
serious listening session.
What I heard coming from that player I was not expecting. The first thing
I noticed was the amount of detail and texture coming from the bass. As a
bass player, this is what I listen to first in music.
Also I noticed the rhythm and timing was vastly improved compared to the
I was sitting there stunned. It just sounded so organic, so natural. Just
like my Kuzma turntable. And this is all from CD replay. CDs that sounded
forward and thin, had body and presence. Sitting there last night playing
CD after CD and getting goose bumps.
Thank you very much for such an outstanding upgrade.
I'm scared where level 3 will take it.
Then a little further on:
You are more than welcome to use my words and name on your site. I have
also talked up your upgrade on a forum for the 105.

Let's just say that since Friday 15 records have turned up and none have
been played. The Kuzma Stabi Reference is on holiday!
Last night i was playing CDs trying to see if i could trip it up. No luck.
Every disc just sounded incredible. I might even say that i think the
level 2 105 sounds better than the Audio Aero Capitole i used to own.
Thanks so much for your time, communication and knowledge. You have
created a wonderful player out of something so humble.
I just want to let you know that I've only played 2 records all week. 2
records. That's it.
It's been CD constantly. What
have you done to me?
This CD/SACD player is magic. I'm rediscovering my collection again. It
I can't thank you enough.
My wife is at odds to understand why she found me at 3.30am sitting in the
prime position with the stereo blaring totally asleep.
My intrigue was obviously greater than my stamina.
Needless to say that track after track stood me in disbelief of what I was
hearing. Disbelief that my system could actually sound that good and that
my music could reveal that much more life and detailed information.
It's often dangerous to have to high an expectation. Especially when the
supplier is singing its glory.
However, I can only say that the JLTi Oppo95V2 has
surpassed all my expectations.
With high quality audio components you hope for a measured increase in
quality and expect a high price tag. It's the opposite with the JTIV2,
huge increase in quality at little cost.
The actual improvements in sound are across the board. Greater separation,
air and focus all in a very musical analogue presentation.
I treasure listening to music as food for the soul.
I am in a new heaven.

– drum roll - for the review I’ve promised you... hell, where do I start?!
Joe, I don’t
quite know how to thank you other than to say how lucky and privileged I
feel to have found you. You, to my mind, are one of the true messiahs of
Hi-Fi/Audio in that you, through your years of passion & work, appear to
have unlocked the secret of bringing true high-end sound to the average
Since I set
up... I have just listened & listened into the small hours, mesmerized and
entranced by the magic that I’m hearing. To be honest, I was pretty happy
with my little JLTi-ed Sony machine; and indeed, it was a quantum leap
forward over my old Marantz... but wow, this JLTi upgraded Oppo unit is
something else again!!!
writing, so many superlatives (and god I hate cliché “audio rave” terms!)
are running through my brain, I scarcely know where to start... but I’ll
try. For me, great sound comes down to “connection” – that
hard-to-describe ability of a good rig to bring a performance into the
listening space and create a sense of palpability and tangibility; that
you can visualize and “touch” the musician/singer in front of you.
And at this
level it’s a kind of given that there needs to be “air” around each
instrument, and that these need to have a high degree of timbral
“correctness” (and the Oppo delivers these in spades); but these alone, as
integral as they are in the mix, won’t get you across the line in the
emotional connection stakes – it’s here that the JLTi Oppo truly delivers.
Whilst I’ve never heard a Meitner front-end, it is difficult for me to
imagine how anything could actually outshine the JLTi Oppo, but in
consideration of price alone, the JLTi would be, in my humble opinion,
hard to top. And if you factor in $, then it’s not even a competition!!
I recall writing to you after receiving my little JLTi Sony, that I had
effectively acquired a whole new music library (my existing CD collection)
– well, guess what…..ditto!!! J
