The best thing for me to do is get a compatible AV Receiver to replace The Sony DB-830. I do have a place for it.
The Idea of a splitter requires to much of another trial and error that I don't fell like dealing with. The switch I have
coming out of the SC-07 HDMI-2 out is hooked to a cheap 24in HDTV that I use when I do not want to turn on the large TV, and a 26in HDTV that goes to the Kitchen.Only one of the two will work at one time and will work with or without the large TV that is hooked to the HDMI-1 OUT.

I used to have a Sony STR-DB930 that is still in the family. It always had a peculiar dip right at the frequency of Glenn Frey's voice.

Hopefully having another HMDI receiver between the Oppo and the Samsung will isolate the Samsung from the Oppo so the Oppo doesn't set itself for the audio capabilities of the Samsung.

I have been out of the loop since I purchased to 83. My other equipment has some years behind it. Looks like ill go for the 105. From what I hear the 105 wont be replaced til fourth quarter 2014.

Thanks again Rob

I think the biggest advantage of the 105 in audio quality is if you are connecting analog outputs of the 105 directly to power amps. Second option would be through a receiver (AVR) or preamp that is not re-digitizing the audio for processing. Even then, the reviews I've seen suggest the improvement in audio quality is real, but subtle (over the analog outputs on the 103). I don't think you're going to find anything near a night and day difference between the two. If you use HDMI (or S/PDIF) for audio to your receiver or preamp, then the DAC in the Oppo isn't being used anyway, so there would be no difference.

My AVR uses ES9016 Sabre32 Ultra DACs which are better than the DAC in the 103, but a step below the ES9018 Sabre32 DAC in the 105. There's lots of discussion to be found on which DACs are better, and how much of a difference they actually make vs. other factors such as DAC implementation.

Here's a few reviews that focus on the audio quality/capability of the 105:

I am using the analogs for SACD, DVD-A, Dolby True, and DTS HD MA. Im using optical and coax for the Lex processing.

If the difference is only subtle and using the second option, Im favoring the 103. Ill have to research the reviews you recommended.

Thanks

I struggled with the decision between the 103 and 105 myself. Ultimately, I just couldn't justify the extra cost of the 105 unless I was going to use it as my preamp/processor directly output to power amps. I decided instead to put the money toward an AVR with good DACs, and a room correction system.

I believe your Lexicon has an analog bypass mode. Understand that only when you're using that mode would you really be hearing the ESS Sabre DAC in the 105. Otherwise the analog input from the Oppo is being re-digitized by an ADC in the Lexicon, and eventually converted back to analog by the Lexicon's DAC(s).

I read your recommended reviews and Ive decided to get the 103. If the audio difference is subtle I opt for the 103.

In my decision making process I also decided to save the $700.00 for a good processor.

Thanks to all who replied!

It's not your browser. AVS is having a stroke. This is happening to random posts in random threads. If you Quote or Edit the post the full text is still there, it just isn't being displayed correctly when you view the thread normally.

Bill has already alerted the AVS Forum Operations folks.

ETA: And just that fast, the problem with THAT particular post is fixed. But the problem may still be showing up elsewhere. If you see a post showing just a couple lines, then ending in an ellipsis (...), that's probably a post showing this problem.

Guys, the moderators have been deleting posts that announce hacked firmware. Similar to discussing illegal movie downloads, my understanding is that it's against AVS policy to discuss hacked firmware on AVS, especially if said firmware enables (or re-enables) features that were removed at the request of entities such as the movie studios. It's probably best to discuss such things on another forum where there aren't such policies.

Please continue to report these posts. Asking for payment for "hacked" firmware is not allowed on this site.

Re the OPPO 105 as a "Pre Amp" or "Pre Processor" -

I tried connecting my Directv satellite receiver via HDMI to my OPPO 103 and ran into "HDCP" content protection problems with premium channels. Has anyone else experienced this?

Also - - the OPPO 105 only has one HDMI "in" - - so I assume that you'd need to have an HDMI switcher if you had more that one component that you wanted to connect in that mode.

I see two HDMI ins, just like the 103. One on the back and one on the front.

Ah, I missed the one in the front. But still - - that would look kind of messy running an HDMI cable from there. I would have designed it with two HDMI "in" connections on the back. That would really cover 90% of the HT setups - - satellite box & media player.

This is a good policy that I personally fully support...

I also think it would be helpful if the moderating team announced such forum rule infractions within this topic (together with the members name) to deter others who might do the same wink.gif

Same here. I have a show or two I can't get via cable, I run HDMI from my Blackberry Playbook to the front of the 103 and stream the sows that way, it works great as a temporary connection.

Are you talking no Cinavia detection at all for MKV, or just over SMB? I have had MKV files played via USB where Cinavia did kick in and I got the popup and lost sound. The work around was to ReMux and remove the chapter references. Then it played fine with no interruption.

The most recent firmware is 0808B, B for beta. You can use network firmware upgrade only for going from beta to beta, or from production to production. Else you need to use USB or disc.

You're correct. I'm getting cinavia detection and prevention on Total Recall (2012) in MKV.

I don't know when this first appeared. I'll check M2TS.

The studio noose tightens.

Thanks for the reply ! Is it a worth while FW Upgrade and any issues reported that you know of ? I've got the previous FW and has been working great for everything I use my 103 for .

It's not urgent if you are having no problems. This is our standard advice for all updates.

If you report problems then our first advice is "make sure you are running the latest firmware".

The Darblet isn't for everyone. Some folks just do not like the image, period. It doesn't change the resolution or anything like that. it doesn't "boost" the contrast or change it - - it just enhances it. It makes the image look considerably sharper, but dimensionally it takes a huge leap forward. To me, the colors look fantastic - - brighter, sharper, more vivid. All this with no negative consequences to the image and without artifacts.

It definitely sharpens the image - especially for projectors. And, in response to your comment that the Darblet "created it," - - not in my opinion. The same "stubble" effect that I saw on the show when I was channel surfing is evident with other broadcasts. It truly does "lift the veil."

I do not use any HTPC in my setup, so we're probably not comparing apples to apples. But that's o.k. - - to each his own.

If you report problems then our first advice is "make sure you are running the latest firmware".
