First, I must apologize. We're buying a 65" Samsung 3D TV, so we need a 3D feature. Not quite "barebone".

For BD playback on our RS1 we use an HTPC. Otherwise, we probably would have sprung for the 80 when it was current.

Here's a link to a photo of the back of the BDP-80:
http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-80/images/Blu-ray-BDP-80_back_hr.jpg
As far as I can tell, those are analog audio outs, correct? If they are, I don't need them or, for that matter, the analog video outs. Just give me HDMI and the digital audio outs, please.

Most importantly, when it was availble, how much did Oppo sell the 80 for?

The bang for the buck in BD players nowadays is simply amazing. Last week we bought a Toshiba 2D BD player for the LCD in front of our treadmill. It has on its back only an ethernet connection and HDMI and spdif outputs. Its video output is amazingly good for a $67 unit!! It has a 2x, 4x, etc. zoom, but only the 2x is of any real use, and that only for 2.75:1 movies (unless there is a nipple you want to fill the screen with) and, even in the case of 2.75:1 movies, I'd like less zoom than 2x. Oppo's presets are much more useful, IMO.

But I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the Toshiba's lifespan was shorter than that of a mosquito and here is where the Oppo's no doubt greater cost could/would be justified.

I seem to remember paying around that for our 981 DVD-only player ................. and I'd probably shell out that much again for a long-lived BDP-101.

As an added attraction, perhaps Oppo should make it ultra-small, like the new Samsung BD external reader/burner I just bought. (I still can't believe a thing that size can do what it does.) That way Oppo would have both extremes in size covered.

Oppo 103/105 are missing a feature which was implemented in Oppo 9X models. What happened to "making a temporary playlist using an external hard drive" feature?

It'd be very nice and thoughtful of Oppo to add that old feature in their next firmware upgrade.

Well, I've had my 103 a while now and am still loving the bejesus out of it. After reviewing my first post in this thread, those are still the main features I'd like upgraded on the Oppo BDP-113. The Oppo 113 I'm sure will include many BR player quality features but I stream more and more from my Oppo. And while many TVs have some streaming capabilities, a robust streaming solution (short of connecting a HTPC directly to my TV) would be highly desirable.

I think the ability to backup movies in ISO format on server and retrieve onto the player is vastly overrated.
I seldom watch a movie more than once, so its of no relevance to me.
I couldnt care about that feature, which is why I sold my Oppo BDP-93 last year which was capable of playing ISO files (yeah, I did not chose to upgrade firmware because I wanted to maintain its resale value)

I tend to agree for movies, but it's music ISOs that are the real value for me (Blu-ray, DVD-A, and SACD). If you're not strongly into music, especially multichannel and high-resolution music, and you don't frequently re-watch movies, then ISO playback may not be so critical.

For some, it's whole-house movie streaming using ISOs that is the real value, which of course, the 93/95 couldn't do anyway.

I'd like to see a good interface for Android and IOS; movies with covers and synopsis etc. The Oppo players have better high end media support and PQ than XBMC and when combined with easier setup I think they could really sell more of them with this sort of feature.

MultEQ XT32 with bass management, with the same DAC for the BDP105, for the new BDP115. Did I miss something? As I understand it, there is no such combo with a reasonable price range. No outboard unit to work with. Maybe this was said recently, but I just didn't see it.

A machine that works out of the box without all the bugs and problems that the 105 has been dealing with.

Sticking with my 95 until then.

For me the 105 has been no more or less than with the 95 and more than makes up for it with its musical and better video performance wink.gif

I will never purchase a slot-loading player of any kind - they tend to mark/scratch up discs and it's very difficult to remove a disc from the player without touching the bottom surface in some way.

FWIW, I also find the 105 to be far less buggy than my BDP-95 was, particularly when dealing with Pandora.

I might as well let a 3 year old use my disc collection for Frisbees. I have seen far too many damaged discs and locked discs in these units (I'm a computer consultant).

You are correct, less moving parts is often a good thing but in this case, a drawer would be more beneficial for most. If the drawer was deeper, it would help in centering the disc before closing as misplaced discs can get scratched in a drawer mechanism.

Drives without drawers have a number of issues and are typically worse for the average user, placing the disc in carefully parallel so as to not scratch it on the opening is a big concern - particularly if someone else is using your equipment. Often the spindle will engage at the wrong time or is raised to high before engaging.

Here are features I would like to see in the next OPPO BDP after the 105

 

1. True 4K Blu Ray Player with HDMi 2.0

http://www.ssgamers.org/hdmi-2-0-version-coming-soon

- Include Thunderbolt (http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/hdmi-2-0-explained/)

 

2. DIRAC Live SoftwareTM and of course include user adjustable EQ 1/3 octave including low, high and band pass filters.

- http://www.dirac.se/en/consumer-products/dirac-rcs.aspx

This should be easy as they already have a deal with DIRAC.

- http://www.dirac.se/en/news-events/latest-news/oppo-find-5-smartphone-announced-with-dirac-hd-sound.aspx)

 

3. Support for 9.2 channels, better 11.4 channels

- Support at least two subs better would be four subs.

 

4. Decode Dolby AtmosTM

- http://www.dolby.com/us/en/consumer/technology/movie/dolby-atmos.html

 

5. Decode DTS Multi Dimensional AudioTM

- http://www.dts.com/corporate/press-releases/2013/01/dts-announces-next-generation-audio-solution-for-ultra-hd-content.aspx)

- http://www.circlesurround.com/landing.aspx?id=2459

 

6. Fully compatible with Apple files and iPad

 

7. Memory profile settings, so one can have different settings depending of what the user is listening to, Music, Movies!

 

8. Always controlled by smart phone, iPad,

1 HDMI 20
2 4K
3 802.11ac (from a better wireless card manufacturer)
4 More streaming memory e.g. last left off point in a video after turning back on the player
5 Memorized streaming points -e.g. this computer, video, folder...
6.Faster streaming boot - I don't want to have to wait a minute after boot to go to network or I'll have to go through many menus to get to the folder I was last in
7 Faster scrolling in the menu
8 Support for wireless keyboard and mouse
9 Search streamed library for a file name or title
10 playback for streamed isos and vobs

There are some good ideas listed above, but a lot of the items are really describing a full-blown surround sound processor, not a Bluray player. Other items are too vague - what does "fully compatible with iPad" mean? Support for Thunderbolt doesn't seem likely for the reasons described in the linked article - unless it starts to become a common input connector on consumer TV's, there's not much point in adding the cost involved in supporting it (even if it's just a $1 or so - adding a few things that cost only a few bucks quickly adds up and drives the final price of the product beyond the point where people consider the price reasonable).

The 103/105 already support wireless keyboards that use USB dongles. But there's no mouse support at this time. While I certainly wouldn't complain if mouse support were added, I really don't see it as a high priority for this type of product as that's not the way I see people wanting to control it.

10 playback for streamed isos and vobs
Given what's happened with ISO support on the 93/95 and the 103/105, this simply isn't going to happen as the movie studios won't allow it. This is a feature that I'm sure Oppo would love to be able to support, but they can't do that and stay in business at the same time.

Yes Oppo should consider including some fonctions of a good AV Pre/Pro that way we can all plug it in directly into the amps

 

- An other feature would be the analog connection to be 11.4 XLR fully discrete, quad differential, fully balanced

I for one would LOVE Oppo to come out with a nice PrePro. I think my current Denon AVP is FANTASTIC, it is both clean and neutral... b-u-t when HDMI 2.0 becomes standard my AVP will be put up on craigslist. I used to buy Denon DVD players and BR players till I discovered the quality and tremendous bang for the buck Oppos. I tried the Onkyo Integra prepro and while it had many of the bells and whistles comparable to the AVP - it sounded like steaming pile of doggy doodoo. Even my 15 year old Sony prepro sounded much much better. If Oppo could make a prepro as artfully constructed as the 103 I'm sure my living room and bedroom would both have Oppo surround processors.
