Watched the dark knight rises on the weekend via the xbone and then watched it again on the 103 and the oppo just misses that certain extra oomph in the sound.
Am I the only one experiencing this?
I don't know what an xbone is, but if you are connecting your 103 to your amp using HDMI, the audio issue is happening somewhere else (not in the 103), since it's merely sending the digital signal to your amp without doing anything to the data.
On the other hand, if you are using analog connections, it's possible that you haven't set up bass management properly in the 103--and/or it's also possible that there is something amiss with your other equipment.
The audio quality from the Oppo via HDMI is exactly what I got from two other (cheaper) BluRay players, and I was very happy with what I heard using the analog outputs to play multichannel SACDs--it was nearly as good as my Denon 3910 universal player, which had a list price 3x the Oppo's.
