Vanity HD series

High-resolution multichannel digital output modules for OPPO BDP-93 and BDP-103 with re-clocking and advanced DSD processing

The launch of the Vanity - our very first high resolution digital output module - in 2006 enabled all audiophiles owning a stand-alone external digital to analogue converter to play back high resolution material in full digital quality. With the onset of the Blu-ray format, developments of digital home theatre and the spread of multi-channel recordings, it was becoming ever more apparent that a good signal source for fully digital multi-channel amplifiers and high-end rigs was absent on the market.

This has been true - up to now!

The Vanity93 HD and Vanity103 HD continue the product range started by their two-channel predecessor designed for universal DVD players. They enable to turn the Oppo BDP-93 and BDP-103 player into an eight-channel high-end digital transport. OPPO Blu-ray players are highly praised for their versatility, reliability and number of third-party upgrades available. The Vanity HD are add-on modules that can simply replace the analogue output circuit board with full resolution digital outputs.
