Yes.

Everything below that 80Hz will be steered towards the Subwoofer Output.

Thanks everyone.

I've had my internally-modified all-region BDP-103 since mid-January. I got it new from Bombay Electronics, who did the mod, and when it arrived, it already had the most recent firmware installed (BDP10X-38-1220), so counting this latest one (BDP10X-58-0719), I've only done two updates so far (I don't ever install the Beta test releases)... but neither the May 3rd BDP10X-50-422 update nor this one have had any effect on the 103's all-region capabilities.

I love this 103. For me, every function that I use -- no streaming at all; shiny-disc and USB thumb-drive .wav files, exclusively -- works flawlessly, every time.

I think I saw somewhere that Bluraychip.dk had issued a firmware update for this mod. (This is the mod that is firmware updateable, isn't it?) That may be what you need.

More good news, on a somewhat-related firmware/fix topic...

There have been a number of posts over the past several months that concerned fairly loud "clicking" or "popping" sounds that were occurring at the end of some user-recorded audio tracks. The latest firmware release notes say:

"Resolved an issue where a loud popping noise could be heard at the end of playing some WAV, MP3, and DSD music tracks."

A few months ago, when I learned of the Oppo's new ability to devise playlists for music tracks recorded onto USB thumb-drives, I installed the latest version of WavePad Sound Editor on my laptop, and began ripping and editing favorite tracks from my CDs (I really like using the WavePad editor, and I've been using it for years, to cut, fade-in, fade-out, and/or join tracks. It very easily allows doing so with extremely high precision.). All went beautifully -- i.e., the tracks played back perfectly on my laptop -- until I transferred them to a thumb drive. Played back on the Oppo, every track on the drive had a loud pop at its end!

Assuming that it couldn't possibly be the Oppo's fault, as a test, I re-ripped several tracks using Windows Media Player (I'm using Win 7, by the way), and transferred them to the thumb drive. Low-and-behold... no pops! Subsequent e-mails with NCH Software, who make WavePad, revealed that they were aware that this problem sometimes arose, and would hopefully have a fix for it... perhaps by late winter. rolleyes.gif

Consequently, I didn't really have high hopes that this latest Oppo firmware upgrade would have any effect at all on this dilemma. Much to my surprise and delight, THE POPS ARE GONE!

So to RicMau and any others who are concerned about the fact that Oppo does frequent firmware updates...

RicMau,

The "HDMI Audio quality" depends almost totally on what is on the other end of the HDMI cable. If your receiver has a a better or worse DAC and analog section than that in the 103 (pretty darned good) you will notice a difference. I'll tell you that the 103 sounds better than the DAC in my Yamaha DSP-A1 fed through toslink or S/PDIF.

Well for me im stuck using the dac in my anthem mrx 300 ..anything going into the mrx is digitizing. The signal in order for arc to do room correction
so im missing out on how the dac sounds in the oppo..and the dac/converter cd player i have is also of no use to me..looks like i will be putting things up on audiogone!.... although the sound from my dac/converter cd player sounds amazing...it is actually going thru multiple. Ad/da conversions before being sent to my speakers...wish the mrx 300 had a pure direct mode...but that would cancel out arc...and arc is a huge difference in the sound from quality!

Works smoothly!

Good for you! Better yet, you found it without having to put up with more unsolicited advice.smile.gif On a related note, My JVB Digital all regions mod has continued to work well.

I will second the observation made by an earlier poster: frequent firmware upgrades to a BD player are a good thing. Too many cheap BD players end up with problems after a while because they aren't updated. In the case of Oppo players, frequent firmware updates are even more important because of how much the Oppos can do.

Well, I have two other BluRay players (about to go on sale via Amazon) that work fine but don't get any updates anymore. As a result, people who own these machines regularly post about newly released BDs that won't play on their machines. From what I'm seeing on this forum, Oppo tends to release firmware that keeps their machines from becoming obsolete, as well as adding features and eliminating bugs. Very happy (after two weeks of ownership) with my 103.

Question: Using an external drive via USB, and have both of the AVS user created Demo Discs… I would like to drop both of the folders for each of these onto the drive, but when I do one it works, but a 2nd will not.

Is it not possible to uses the modify program on two different AVCHD on the same drive?

With Oppo it is a good thing. Most if not all of their FW updates are to improve the players features, operation and playback with discs that have issues playing. I emailed Oppo today with a question on my 103. I received a response to my email within ten minutes. That is incredible service and I told Oppo I was a customer for life smile.gif.

If these are actual AVCHD structures without copy protection then no modification should be necessary. The AVS HD 709 disc AVCHD version plays without issue on USB and over SMB, for example.

What is the error behavior? Do you have a link to the problem disc?

I suspect the DAC on the OPPO could be better than in the Pioneer 1522k. So if I got it correctly using HDMI it will mostly depends on how good the pioneer is, but the pio 1522k has no analog inputs to try it frown.gif
Thanks to all for their replies on this matter.

I have the BDP-83 and a Pioneer Elite VSX-33. I've compared using the analog connections to the 33 vs. connecting strictly by HDMI. I've used it for all of the music and HT formats that the 83 can handle, and can say that both sounded great.

The tradeoff that you make when connecting by analog is that you bypass the room correction that the AVR provides. This is not a bad thing if you are careful in setting the parameters in the Oppo, but it does require more time and patience in setting it up. Once set, you're in good shape, but the demand is there.

I use strictly HDMI because of the room correction and the convenience now. The 83 is not as capable as later models in configuring the room parameters, so the 103 may be better at competing with an AVR.

In the end, both sounded great for me, I chose HDMI because of convenience and thought the room correction made for better sound.

I once emailed Bluraychip with a question about their mod which I had in my 93, but they did not deign to respond.

Just saw this, now that I'm considering buying the Oppo 103 to replace my Oppo 93 (which has the JVB "pro" mod, but I have only used it for DVDs in the past year) for a "creative" secondary usage I found for it as a source switcher for HDMI-based TiVo and Apple TV, applying Trinnov to the HDMI out via a Sherwood R-972, and then to an amp. At least as a "science experiment" with some risk minimization, given a Harmony programmable remote we currently use.

Does anyone know if the JVB mod is Pro or not, and is it the same as the bluraychip.dk one? And did you do an install yourself into a unit purchased from Oppo or from JVB, given that you have the mod.

I'm leaning toward pulling the trigger. At the very least, I'll be "up to date".

Thanks a lot.

It depends on which has the better audio DACs, the player or the receiver. Since your receiver doesn't have analog inputs, it's really a moot point. If your receiver has good audio DACs, then the 103 would be a great player for you, connected via HDMI. If you are unhappy with the audio with your current receiver, then it's time to upgrade the receiver. Whether you want to use the audio DACs of the 103 or a new receiver depends on which has the better DACs (and you'd have to pick a receiver to get that answer). Of course, for more $$, the 105 has even better audio DACs than the 103. But you should not go that route unless you get a receiver with analog inputs.

So far as I know, the JVB all regions chip for the 103 does not call itself "Pro." Nevertheless, mine has performed flawlessly. I ordered mine by mail and installed it myself without much trouble. From what I have read here and elsewhere, the JVB chip operates somewhat differently from the one from blueraychip..dk but seems to handle Oppo's frequent firmware updates significantly better than the blueraychip.dk chip.

I think there is one where you can do the external mod. that is what I would do if I ever tried again. the bluraychi.dlk is highly overrated and so is the company. while I got my money back they were more slow then anything to do anything about it. certainly would not recommend them to anyone.

JVB Digital offered an external all regions for for one of the earlier Oppos but I think the only version available for the 013 is internal. Nevertheless, it's easy to install.

He solicited advice the first time and got snarky unsolicited advice about using the search function for his trouble. Then he posted that he had found the info he needed on the blueray.com site. There is no indication I saw that he had any help finding the link that he found useful. If you have information contrary to this please tell us about it.

I would doubt the bass crossover filter is a brick-wall type which would eliminate "everything" under that chosen frequency. Usually there is a slope from that point downward at so many db per octave.

I run the 40 hertz choice allowing the sub to function with little if any loss of low end in my full range speakers.

Audio Research SP-8 preamp - Aragon 2002A Amp - Well Tempered table and arm - Apogee Duetta Signature ribbon speakers - Oppo 103 (running amp direct) - HK receiver for 7.1 surround sound amplification - tons of vinyl, SACD, DVD-A, and AIX blu ray audio/video. 3+ TB of audio wav files from most genre's.

Are you talking about the analog out ? Reason I ask is because I run HDMI and also 2ch analog out and prefer no sub so have it and all other speakers off except for my front left & right . Doesn't seem to effect HDMI out were I'm running 5.2 . Just wanted to make sure I've set up my 103 correctly .

^ The speaker settings, including choice of Crossover, ONLY affect the multi-channel Analog audio outputs. HDMI audio output ignores those settings -- your HDMI-capable AVR handles that for HDMI audio.

I was addressing the analogue outs as that is what the statement about "everything" being cut off under the crossover network pertained I would offer those having a separate amp or even a tape monitor loop to try the 103 driving directly bypassing their pre amp to see how special the 103 sounds. There is some magic in the unit which Oppo has mentioned when I addressed what I was hearing. Wave files even sound more life like than playing the CD. Must have something to due with the size of the file being directly dealt with instead of from a spinning disc. I think I read that the meta material in waves was not present, but it is when directly attached by thumb drive or hard drive, but not through a wireless access. A vinyl friend stopped over and heard the wave files and is ordering one after seeing the total access of having the hard drive/usb thumb drive connection with all it's storage capability along with the improvement in sonic's.

Also leaving the 103 on all the time adds to the improvement in overall sonics.

Audio Research SP-8 preamp - Aragon 2002A Amp - Well Tempered table and arm - Apogee Duetta Signature ribbon speakers - Oppo 103 (running amp direct) - HK receiver for 7.1 surround sound amplification - tons of vinyl, SACD, DVD-A, and AIX blu ray audio/video. 3+ TB of audio wav files from most genre's.

I use the internal/external mod from Only Best Rated Canada (I implement it externally). They do not seem to sell this anymore but the one I have looks identical to the one still available from the ImegStore linked to in the FAQ. Its key coding for changing the region is a little clumsy but becomes easier the more you get the hang of it. It has worked perfectly though each and every firmware upgrade.
