^ You were expecting maybe gushing, perhaps?
If you love the Darbee processing, or even just want to experiment with it, the 103D is a bargain. I've just written up my own thoughts on Darbee as integrated into the 103D in the separate, 103D thread here:
Personally, I also like what the VRS chip is doing compared to the QDEO in the 103. In my case, the VRS plus the chance to play with Darbee, makes the 103D an *EASY* win.
But there's no doubt the 103D is a somewhat more expensive variant of the 103, rather than an entirely brand new player. They are more alike than different. And so making a recommendation to others is tough. Different people will care more about different things.
For example, folks disturbed by the base level of noise reduction found on the HDMI 1 output of the 103 will be pleased to know there is no such thing happening on the 103D.
On the down side, I know of a few issues still being worked on in the current firmware for the 103D, which are not present in the 103. Typical teething pains for a new release. I fully expect OPPO will nail those quickly, but they still represent work in progress.
As usual, OPPO offers their easy, 30-day return policy. So you can try the 103D and make up your own mind after using it with the rest of your gear. All you risk is the shipping costs.
