So I got my prized Oppo 103 the other day and am amazed at all the formats I can throw at this thing, the USB capability is great. However I still find myself scratching my head on a couple issues. Perhaps folks out there can let me know their thoughts.
1. The mouth moves out of sync with the music, sometimes it’s really bad for instance with Netflix.
2. HDMI input doesn’t seem to jive with my cable box, the main reason I forked over cash to get this thing. After a few minutes I get a message saying Advanced security has kicked in and the screen goes green. There is a way to get around this on my Motorola and change an option setting on HDMI to DVI however the setting seems to reset after the box is turned off. Anyone know about this?
3. Biggest issue…the sound! The bass is weak and the dynamics aren’t what I expect. I hooked up my old MSB LINK (Model 2) as a DAC and the difference was noticeable enough to be somewhat disappointed. I was hoping I could get rid of my MSB but in all honesty the Oppo made my DAC sound better than before…tight bass, well imaged vocals, etc.
So I am let wondering if I made the right decision, will future upgrades and modifications balance out the problems I have found? I am a 2 channel person with a very nice vinyl front end, I expected this to be the last digital upgrade I would need for a while but still not convinced.
