Just make sure you pick the right pin layout for your desk. (Yamaha or Tascam, your manual will know).
We use Oppo BDP 95 but Oppo stopped manufacturing players a while ago.

So if you a buy a player with integrated line outputs (post internal decoding) youŽll also need some form of balancing unit, to convert unbalanced RCAŽs to balanced XLR line level. Active are better, passive will work with around a 6 db loss comparing to regular balanced line levels Examples:

Passive:

The other more expensive way, is to also have a receiver with balanced outs placed in between the player and your Audient.
