Suggest to implement Replay Gain as a feature in the future Oppo BDP players.

Can also be done on the server side:

Implemented in Foobar, JRiver, and probably other media servers also.

^^ Guys,

My intent was to use the Oppo as a music server/streamer. Sorry I didn't make this clear in the original post. This way, I can shutdown the PC and not have another electricity munching device on. Save the environment and some $0.$$ seems to be a good idea.

Maranatz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik F12G

What are you streaming your audio content from? Is it stored on an electricity munching device like a hard drive or a NAS?

^scolumbo,

Used the CO2 spewing device called Windows 8 PC with DLNA media server - Serviio. Had to have another energy munching device called the TV on so that I could navigate to the right folders and play a single tune using the Oppo.

This experience can best be described - like trying to paint with a shovel. Gave up after a few attempts of frustration in creating a playlist - couldn't do it.

Bought a WD MyBook NAS (yes an another energy munching device) + BubbleUPnP (software on the Android phone, thus no really munching energy). No longer use the Oppo, PC and TV.

Would really like to use the Oppo as I think it's got better hardware, but doesn't do the things I want. A shame really.

I use a small 9" LCD as a monitor for navigation with my 93 instead of the TV, but it's easier with the 103/105 using JRemote/JRiver and a smart phone. I just can't give up my ISO capable 93.

I do leave my pc running continuously in a power saving mode, so using Foobar or JRiver as a media server with the 93 is not an issue. Creating playlists and organizing, indexing files using media server software is so much easier than using the Oppo's crude UI. I think I'm still more energy efficient that going back to my days of using an HTPC as a music server.

^ scolumbo,

Right now, it's hard to beat the NAS + moble phone (BubbleUPnP app) combo. With the mobile in the pocket and the convenience to bring it out anytime to play tunes is a great feature. The ability to have wireless connection to the pre/pro/AVR, simple navigation to NAS/cloud storage, create playlists on the fly, shuffle / random modes and display details such as next track/album/artwork in the palm of your hand makes it so easy to use. I don't know why Oppo wouldn't simply buy out BubbleUPnP and implement this into the next BDP.smile.gif It makes a lot of sense to me.

But then again Oppo development team is looking at what will make people open their wallets more than just me. Maybe I'm a bit of an anomaly. tongue.gif

Speaking of Foobar, they are working on a mobile version and need support from folks who really care about quality audio. For when we can't be sitting in front of our next Oppo system component...

Cool, as much use as I get out of Foobar with my Oppo, I need to contribute. What I'd really like to see is capability to play BD Audio which is a growing part of my collection.

I'm abby normal too smile.gif Bubble UPNP is the best $3 USD ever spent on an audio app... and it doesn't even play audio (or video)!. Solved that monitor required problem, too: with the BDP-105 it remains off for music listening.

Hi all,

a nice feature would be the possibility to pre-define an input signal source. Tha same way as now you can choose between the last used and Blue-ray, there would be the option to choose ANY of the possible inputs to be used as default. and the option to use the last used should also stay. :)

 

Thanks,

Podo.

Yes. This would be a very nice feature.

Other stuff I asked before were ROOM CORRECTION SW, XLR on 115, one additional HDMI and if possible upsampling to 32bit (since the SABER DAC is 32bit capable).

Yes, room correction would be cool!
I think the one with pre-defined input choice could be made "easily" by new firmware.

And one more, possible with the current HW:
When browsing the SMB shares, something like "icon view" would be nice, where the "icon" would show some random screenshots, if it is a movie.
A possibility to pre-program (custom define) some buttons on the RC would be nice too. E.g. shortcut to some directory on some SMB share, etc.
Nice whishlist we have here

Room correction per HDMI input. Out of interest, why is that necessary?

I don't mean to sound defeatist or negative, but since Oppo makes phones and stuff…

Do you think the 103/105D's are maybe it for blu ray players?

The proper setting for sharpness is always0.
Also my Oppo BDP-103D is region free.
That makes me awesome.

^I don't think Oppo will have a choice since the "industry" is pushing it hard and now all avr/preamps will have it and players will too.
I suppose though that a player should be able to bitstream the audio to a separate decoder,
but that would also mean that users would have to invest in a very high quality avr/pre-amp with high quality DAC and analog output for analog users.
That would most definitely require a bigger investment than what something like a BDP-105 would cost.
IF Oppo were to release something with internal Atmos features, I definitely think they should offer an option of WITH or WITHOUT Atmos.

The number of titles that could conceivably benefit from this will be limited. Forget about any music releases for example.

Even for movies, forget about anything other than popcorn, action flicks. And new ones at that. Catalog titles need not apply.

Of course any studio could release fake height channel mixes (something the original content was never intended to do), but really, what's the point in such fakery if there aren't enough home installations to make a difference in sales? You just KNOW such fabricated mixes will be slap-dash.

The quality in the height channels won't be there anyway. Good grief, satellite speakers bouncing it off the ceiling?

I'd just hope that OPPO enthusiasts could focus on stuff that makes a difference, instead of just trying to collect as many logos as can fit on the front panel.

It sure was when it launched. Cast your mind back. It took quite some time before anything other than ambience was in the surrounds. Heck, originally the idea was you could get away with cheap surround speakers because they weren't expected to produce anything but a narrow band of frequencies.

Over time -- quite a lot of time actually -- that has changed. However it's still tough to get a decent 7.1 mix. And 5.1 for music is often still, well, weird.

Should I now replace it with a hard surface ceiling? ummm, no...
Of course all of that is getting beyond the topic of the thread and belongs in an Atmos thread, but I'm a little scared to go there, lol.

^ Fortunately the claim is that Atmos home-game edition will be compatible with existing Blu-ray players so long as you use HDMI Bitstream output into a shiny new, Atmos-compatible AVR with shiny new Atmos compatible speakers. I guess we'll get to see just how well that works out.

The question, then, is whether the next OPPO player, itself, should offer to decode these tracks (into HDMI LPCM or multi-channel Analog). Personally, I'd be happy to wait to see which format (of the what is it now, six?) that are going after this same turf actually pans out in terms of a reasonable amount of content.

I agree, complete nonsense!!! My ceiling has Absorption treatment to prevent reflections. Most acoustic tiles I've specked do a good job of absorption.

I hope OPPO is listening here is my updated wish list:

Yes here is my wish list in order of priority

1) Auto EQ from either

- DIRAC http://www.dirac.se/en/technologies/.../overview.aspx
- Lyngdorf: ROOM PERFECT http://lyngdorf.com/downloads/produc...on_english.pdf

2) Dolby ATMOS 13.2 (L/C/R/SR/SL/SWR/SWL/SBR/SBL/HR1/HL1/HR2/HR2) a la Marantz AV8802

3) DTS MDA or UHD

4) Auro 3D

5) HDMi 2.0 4K passthrough

Of course including the new New Sabre DACs
