You'll be pleased to know that Oppo has updated the 93's Media Control app for Android today. I've installed it on my Lollipop devices and it's working fine now.

Cool Major theater upgrade

After adding a Darbee to my theater a few months ago, with an HDMI switcher to feed all my HDMI video through it (take that, 103D) I decided to finally upgrade from my pre-HDMI Yamaha RX-V457 to their RX-A1030 - the bottom of the next-to-most recent version of their Aventage line. The 1040 (and until it came out, the 1030) cost $1,100 - $1,200 - but the 1030 now costs only $700 new at Amazon.

With an ESS Sabre 9006 DAC (the least-expensive sibling of the 9016 in the Oppo x5 machines), the AVR, fed LPCM over HDMI, sounds a lot clearer that way than using the multichannel analog output from the Oppo 93. (I connected them both ways so I could A/B them).

The 1030 upconverts all video, from RCA composite to S-VHS (an input left off of the 1040) into HDMI, so even old video tapes and pre-DVD video disks get the benefit of the Darbee.

Spurning the Audessy system common to AVRs, Yamaha has its own room eq (and distance and phase compensation) system called YPAO which surprised me by doing an excellent - and quick - job. (In the past, I've always calibrated with a sound pressure level meter and my ears, but YPAO dud a much better job.)

Going from the optical connection I had to use from my Amazon Fire TV to my RX-V457 for Dolby Digital surround to HDMI audio into the 1030 meant stepping up to DD+.

To evaluate the change, I ran Star Trek's Into Darkness in synch via Blu-ray from the Oppo and via Amazon Prime from the Fire TV. I was surprised that I couldn't hear a lot of difference - I may have to use a small group concert video to tell the difference.

I was insistent upon having the multichannel analog connection so I could play music off my PC without using my projector - remarkably, the LPCM HDMI feed also works without an HDMI monitor being on! Maybe the AVR plus the Darbee is enough to let HDMI audio work from my 93. I haven't played with the Media Control app - I just plug a 9" LCD display into the composite video output on the Oppo 93, and use that to navigate the network folders.

Oh, and the 1030's FM tuner plays HD radio, which let me sell my Sangean HDT-1 component tuner, and its phono input is letting me put my NAD PP 2 phono preamp up for sale as well!

I will say one thing about the Oppo's video that differs from the gospel that the image from Blu-ray players is all the same. It's not true. When I stepped up from my first BD player, a Panasonic, to the 93 - which I did to get hifi analog output - I was pleased to find that the image from Blu-ray disks was much more natural-looking than with the Panny.

I've essentially gotten much of the benefit of a 105D from my 93 with the AVR's DAC and the outboard Darbee, without giving up the use of the composite video jack for music selection, something the 10x Oppos don't let you do.
