Don't forget the GoTo button. You can jump anywhere in a list with a few button presses.

My personal wish is for the ability of a playlist to refer to music files in any directory, so that you can store music files independent of how you order the playing of them.

No. They sometimes have refurbished gear at a discount, same 30-day return and 1 year warranty as new. If it's not on the web page you have to call and ask.

Nope. Although later in the life of each player they often make "refurbished" units available on their web site for a modest discount (including full, new player warranty). These usually get snapped up in a twinkling.

So my Oppo 93 is being delivered this week. So the big question in my mind is do I have the Oppo do the video up scaling or the processor in my Integra 70.3?

That's easy. Use the one you like the best. If you can't tell the difference, use the one that cleans up your wiring the most.

I've been experimenting with the free 96/24 five track, 25 minute demo download at HDtracks, since I found out that I could use a standard DVD burner and freeware from SourceForge to make:

96/24 stereo standard DVDs - no DVD-A player needed! Yes, it's part of the spec for standard DVD-Video. I'm going to pay more attention to the "Stereo PCM" option on concert DVDs in the future. If you have a Windows or linux machine, a freebie there called "lplex" makes it very simple - drag a 96/24 or 48/24 FLAC or WAV file (or folder of them) onto the icon for lplex and it pops up a command window where you can watch it create an ISO file that you can then burn to a DVD with Nero or any other ISO burning software

and

DVD-A disks at not just 96/24 but also 88.2/24 and 192/24 - which are not part of the DVD-V spec - with DVD Audio Tools, also free, but a trickier process.

What I found when I made a pair of identical DVD-V 96/24 disks and played them in sync, switching between my two disk players in my theater, is what leads me to this question.

I found that the rendition of the disk through my Panasonic BD50 - the first Blu-ray player to decode DTS MA as well as Dolby TrueHD and feed them out through 5.1 analog jacks - while good, was subtly outclassed by the rendition through my old Denon 2910, a "universal" DVD/DVD-A/SACD/HDCD player hooked up the same way.

[Both disk players use the analog multichannel jacks on my pre-HDMI Yamaha RX-V457. I use a mechanical Phillips switchbox (electronics-free) to let the two players share the same input jacks.

For speakers I use Paradigm Studio 40s for FR/L, the center is the Paradigm CC (which looks just like the 40), and my surrounds, hung from the ceiling on either side of the listening position, are a pair of Studio 20s. The bottom octave of the surround channels is steered to my sub, a Paradigm PDR-10.]

I had noticed the same aural difference with standard CDs when I first got the Panny BD50: the Denon's sound is subtly warmer and deeper, meaning that it sounds like it has more layers.

So, after that extended warm-up, here's my question:

While I'm in no position to buy either of them in the foreseeable future, and I know that Oppo's BDP-95 is supposed to be the cat's pajamas, would the BDP-93, connected analog, represent a similar step-up in warmth and richness over the BD50 for Blu-ray disks that that the Denon 2910 provides for CDs and 96/24 DVD-Vs?

One thing slowing me down on this - aside from money - is that according to a site in Denmark called DVD-Basen (which has tech specs on most Blu-rays), most are mastered at 48/16! A few are at 48/24, and even fewer are at 96/24.

Just the same, my BD50 sounds great on Blu-ray music. Just wondering if the BDP-93 would turn that up to 11 - and let me move the 2910 to my living room system.

Oppo support has already said that the ability to play hi-res audio codecs (DTS-HD, FLAC, etc) inside an .mkv container depends on the decoder chip manufacturer adding support, which is very unlikely to occur. It's not impossible (hey - I never thought the 93 would play ISO files) but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Isn´t DTS-HD MA working for some on some .mkv? Read that anyways even if it isn´t official support and if that works why not others? Dolby I could understand with licensing and such (but they have that already in the chip right?) but flac works for music and mkv is just a container.

I don't think it does work. Maybe some people are getting DTS core?

Apart from licensing and technical feasibility, you have support issues. OPPO can request the chip maker for new capability but they may not have the time or interest.

Has the QDEO compare split screen ever worked? I'm using the latest firmware and I can't ever tell the difference between the two sides. In fact I'm pretty sure making video adjustments affects both sides. I'm using HDMI 1.

DTS-HD Master will work, but it is unreliable. Sometimes it will crash the system; other times it will work perfectly.

Dolby Digital TrueHD will not work at all. Will give you an "Audio not supported" error.

m2ts/ts is fine, so is BDMV/ISO.

There have no news reports or rumors. A new player is not expected in the near future. Later in the year? No one knows.

Isn't OPPO supposed to make some sort of announcement in a few days. I thought the 12th. I could be wrong. Also let's not forget the 93 was announced out of the blue. No one knew it was coming. People thought a 3D player was going to coexist with the 83 and that it was going to drop to $399. This obviously didn't't happen, but 1 month later the 83 was canceled and with in 2 Months of that the 93 was out. I bet by April a new OPPO player is released which would be 16 months since release date. The 83 only lasted 15 months. Just a theory, but for OPPO to stay a float they still need to update their hardware, and as it is they update a lot slower than other companies. Let's not forget they're still a company and their in the business to make money, because making money means good business.

I just tried this again and still no luck. I tried using the Windows Disk Manager, as well as MiniTool Partition Wizard. I deleted all partitions, then created a 2TB MBR partition. The Oppo still wouldn't read it.

Any suggestions? If someone's gotten a 3TB working, could you please let me know how?

You seem to have forgotten that the 83 was terminated early, and the 93 was pushed out early due to an inability of OPPO to get sufficient quantities of a critical part.

Hopefully they can avoid being put in that position any time soon.

Hi everyone,
I've been experiencing a problem that maybe someone hear knows about. I ran Anthem ARC yesterday for the first time, and for some reason when I initially switch my D2 to my Oppo input (Running HDMI 1 as Video only and HDMI 2 feeding the D2 LPCM) I have no center channel. What I need to do is then switch to a different input and then back to dvd to get the sound back. I was wondering if this is a known issue? I've posted in the Anthem thread but have not received a response as of yet, so I figured I'd try here. Now I'm sure there is some sort of discussion on this within the 2 threads, but I've been searching them to no avail as they both are huge. Any response will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Joe

That's right. I do also remember that but lets be honest how early could that really have been pushed. A month to two months tops. Personally I feel like OPPO needs to release something fresh. Every electronics company needs to refresh their technology at least once every year and a half in my opinion.

I prefer companies that only release a new product to replace another when significant improvements are made. Planned obsolescence does not serve the consumer in any way yet it is rampant and unavoidable.

I'm curious what one would expect in a new model that the 93 doesn't already have? What would be refreshed? I could see Oppo doing a disk-less media server but just not sure what they would add to a disk player.

Folks, a reminder: BDP-93/95 technical talk only here, please.

There are other threads on future products and marketing:

what features would you like in your next Oppo BR player?

2012 Oppo or other new BD player coming out this year worth waiting for?

We've been conditioned to expect (and pay for) "new" models annually by the auto industry which sales approach has rubbed off on consumer electronics.

Meanwhile, I think I counted 15 (!) firmware updates that OPPO has pushed out for the 93/95 models since introduction. That's about 15 more than most of the "big name" labels have offered. Instead, the major labels expect us to buy new hardware annually to get any refinements.

No thanks.

Probably that they have appointed an Australian/NZ distributor and will be releasing specific BDP-93AU and BDP-95AU players in March 2012.

I don't believe this will be a good move for consumers, but time will tell.

Just to keep it on a technical level, it is not expected that the AU models will have AU specific features at launch apart from Region B/4 locking, firmware and Aussie power cable. I recall the issues with the EU models, so I'm not confident the AU models will have an edge over the USA versions.
