    Good stuff, I like the I2s Upgrade Card option, as I have a PS Audio DAC. This would allow a successful transfer of SACD from my 203 to the DAC, similar to the PS Audio Combo.

    I saw that too and then said my god you can do $2K in upgrades to your 203..

    The I2S is very intriguing...as are the linear power options. I ordered the I2S and a PSAudio Stellar GCD.

    Agreed, there is a "get around" solution now to pass the SACD content from the 203 to the PSA DAC, the Upgrades offered here look to be a much "easier" path for the Tech Challenged, such as myself ;)

    If you've ever wondered how tubes would sound in your system, send your oppo to Modwright for their "Truth" tube modification.

    Yes there is no standard

    I contacted the dude and he configures it specifically for the PS Audio I2S

    You would want to make sure it is the same protocol. Like XLR there are different configurations for i2s

    From the oppomod site:

    "many manufacturers are following the PS Audio standard. This specification uses the HDMI terminal physically (not the HDMI transmission standard). Currently PS Audio, Holo Audio and Javs DACs are confirmed for compatibility."

    My results were outstanding, in both picture quality improvements and sound quality improvements. I'll let the new power supply run in for a couple of weeks before I post my full review.

    Installation was easy.

    My immediate results were:

    1. Brighter, clearer, more detailed picture, with better color rendition.
    2. Sound was apparently much louder, due to the significantly lowered noise floor. I actually had to turn the volume of my home theater pre-pro down 4 dB.
    3. More tactile sensation.
    4. Sound stage size didn't change, but image weight increased significantly.
    5. I notice more small details, both with video and audio.

    The pic on the right looks more real. The one on the left looks nice, but it looks more like a stylized picture and not real.

    Makes me really wonder how much more the SE version brings to the table since the standard made a big difference.

    This is the SE version. See the captions for figures 1 - 3.
    The pic on the right looks more real. The one on the left looks nice, but it looks more like a stylized picture and not real.

    The scene was filmed in a white room with blueish lighting from a large, expansive picture window. For those unfamiliar with "Alien Covenant", the movie begins with a closeup of the android David's eye as he is sitting in a chair looking at the picture window and describing what he sees.

    The noise content caused an overemphasis of blue, as well as a loss of fine detail and brightness. A significant reduction in noise brought the picture into better color balance.

    The captures below are from the same scene (captures taken from the Internet).

    I'm sorry Raife I missed that. I seen wire color and it matched the website pictures for the non SE version
    My apologies :)

    That would be close to the mark.

    I'm trying to resist replacing the power supplies in the UDP-203s in my home office and master bedroom...because it would be way overkill. I find myself craving the same increased depth, detail, and color "pop" that I see on the home theater TV.

    I had not seen this thread until today, but I have to say that photograph of the still of the eye is insane. I'm not of a videophile at all, but seeing it like that really tells the story of what a power supply can do. I wish more things in audio could be shown with that type of immediate and obvious comparison via the internet.
