SUMMARY REVIEWS FROM OWNERS OF THE UNIQUE JLTi CONVERSION
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. Let's just say that since Friday 15 records have turned up and none have been played. The Kuzma Stabi Reference is on holiday! 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?

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.

Hello Joe,
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.

Cheers,

Hi Joe, 
I unfortunately went away on the weekend but I kept the Oppo [105] 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 Droplet. 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:
 
Hi Joe,
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. 
.........Anthony Camplone

And:

Hi Joe, 
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 sounds wonderful. I can't thank you enough.

Gordon Wilson is the first person to get Level 2, now has Level 3:
 
Hi Joe,
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.

Hi Joe
Now – 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 person. 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!!! 

As I’m 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!!

In closing, 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

Hi Terry
As the exclusive supplier of the JLTi Upgrade version of the Oppo in NZ you have a giant -killer- 
 
Thanks for introducing the first of these up-graded audiofile players to me at first plating in your salon and for letting me have your one in the queue for orders.
 
We have many SACD's and have previously used an Oppo 95 (which, like the 105D does not down-sample DSD in conversion) : 
 
*  the 105D JLTI is a big step-up from switch on. 
    - wider and better integrated sound stage
   -  clarity in placing instruments and voices in the sound stage
   -   true to live performance voice and instrumental timbres
   -   accurate and deep bass - lifelike treble extremes
   -   no congestion ( if amps and speakers are up to it)
   -   improved Bluray and visual clarity - it transforms good music, DVD's
   
Most of all it has revealed many delights in our library of older CD's - discs previously merely interesting examples of particular works, but not compelling listening are transformed into riveting performances.
 
The effect has been to reveal how good the Quadral Montans you sold us are at capturing the full frequency range, and how even they are.
 
Thanks again

Many thanks Terry for the OPPO-JTLi - straight up this is a superb player,
Straight up this is a superb player, as soon as I plugged it in I knew it was something special. It bears no relation to the otherwise more than capable standard oppo 105.

Having now had the jlti in almost constant use for a couple of months or so I find it a true revelation, everything processed by the jlti DAC is revealed new minted,  full of unheard nuances, cd's that sounded rather ho-hum have become a riveting listen, hard edged red book cd's reappear with a warm natural balance. The player's ability to scrounge every last bit of micro detail is truly astounding. All of the layers in a complex piece are revealed with clarify,  no such thing as an homogeneous wash of sound with this player.  The ability to pick out and follow the line of individual voices in a complex whole is a true delight, imaging is rock solid and soundscape takes you wide and deep. Instrumental and voice timbre and texture is so natural, not a hint of digital artifice, dare I say it but it is more analogue than analogue! 

Prior to this player I was using an Audio Research DAC8 costing more than twice the price of the jlti with the standard 105 as a transport, I had thought that this was a great sound and indeed it was a marked improvement over the standard 105 itself but the jlti is so much more in just about every way. If I could find any area of criticism comparing the two I have would say that the DAC8 renders more clout in the deep bass but the trade offs are too significant especially when considering the wonderful articulate nature of the jlti bass.

If all this sounds just too good to be true, it is nonetheless my experience as a component within my own system and long may the rediscovery of my music collection continue. I have been truly amazed at what lies buried in my cd collection.

I have not been too concerned over the visual aspect of the jlti as my focus is on the audio and the picture quality of the standard player is more than good, but I think there is maybe an improvement in this as well. As a music player alone the Oppo 105 jlti has to be one of the biggest bargains in Hi Fi. 

Thanks again Terry, 

Cheers,

Tim.
