Just checked it with the DVD-A "R.E.M. - The Best Of" with 2.0 LPCM in 24/192kHz. What to say... when using a coax cable between the Oppo (103) and a DAC/Digi-Amp, the sampling rate is limited on 48kHz. No matter if Bitstream or 192k LPCM is activated in the setup menu. That`s also what I have read in a review some months ago. I should have bookmarked it.

The solution (when using an extern DAC) is to hang a HDMI-Audio De-embedder between HDMI Out 2 (A/V split activated) and DAC/Digi-Amp. Then you can enjoy the full 24/192kHz from several DVD-A and BDs and also the 88,2kHz from SACD/DSD.

Lucky the fellows with the older Oppo models in this case.


(When streaming the ripped stereo track of this DVD-A via network, then the Oppo gives out the stream in 192kHz via coax.)


Update: The stereo track of the DVD-A "R.E.M. - Monster" is LPCM 88,2kHz. The Oppo gives out 44,1kHz via coax rolleyes.gif

I've lost track of your configuration. Are you actually using the HDMI output? Connected to what?

Some devices, like TVs and soundbars, are LPCM only, no bitstream. HDMI is not very smart in some cases, but it is smart enough not to let you override that.

Thats odd. It sounds like to me you are running the H25 into the Oppo, it is noting DD 5.1, but sending out LPCM 2.0. Just to be sure you have the H25 audio setting to Dolby Digital and the Oppo HDMI Audio out to Bitstream?

Ok, so the OPPO output shown is correct: regardless of the source or the player settings, the TV can accept only LPCM stereo.

Would someone please tell how to look up the region setting on my OPPO 103? I remember verifying (several months ago) that the region setting had been set to 0 for DVD's after using the CD-R to make the player region free but now I can't seem to find where I looked. thank you.

Are you going into an AVR? I assume it reports LPCM, and what does it do with the H25 direct to it?

There is no display of the player's current Region and Zone settings.

Guys

whenever i use a blue ray and put the resolution to 4kx2k, the picture starts ghosting.

I'm using a sony x900 UHD tv.

 

I called Oppo, and they told me that all content must be 24fps on 4kx2k.

They also told me to put HDMI options to RGB color.

 

That did not help.

 

Last night i was watching avatar, and the 4kx2k could not be used...had to leave it on auto.

 

any clues?

gadgtfreek, No I'm going in to the tv directly. My pre/pro is not HDMI capable. If it was I'm assuming the output would show differently.

Go into Setup and then enter 0770 on the remote. It should display info about the firmware and the current region. I haven't tried it for a long time so I don't remember exactly what is displayed.

Hey guys.  It's been awhile since I replaced my 83SE with a high-end Denon player with DenonLink connection, but I'm thinking about getting a 103 (paired with a Marantz 8801) vs Denon DBT3313 (paired with an AVR4520).  If you'd like to help with my decision, click here. Thanks.:)


Yes, I still like playing with Dalis.

I don't see anything wrong with the spec, but you will not know for sure without trying it.

This.

The spec is just fine on paper and the container (MKV) and codecs (h.264, DTS, DTS-MA) are all 100% supported by the Oppo via DLNA.......but that's only the start.

There are many variables with the DLNA server used (not all handle HD audio well), the quality of the home network (this is a high-bandwidth file), and the encoding/remuxing done by whomever created the file itself.

Have a new 103 and want to know if I should let the player do the audio processing or my pioneer VSX-522. Which of the two has the better processor.
Pioneer is about one year old - so pretty recent.

My Oppo sends LPCM to my Pioneer 1522 and it sounds better, to me, than letting it bitstream out to the Pioneer. Pioneer is set to "Direct."

I'm having a big problem playing variable frame rate MKV files over DLNA. (Haven't tried over a USB external HDD, but I'm assuming the result would be the same) On any 720p HD rip of a Top Gear episode I have this problem. When they are aired on TV, they air with the studio portions in the hangar at 50FPS, while all the normal sections air at 25fps. The studio portions play fine, but whenever a normal sections come up the video constantly stutters every 5 seconds. Is there any solution to this problem? Is it possible to change the whole thing to 25fps without transcoding? Maybe that would fix the problem?
