Bob, I have a 103, an Anthem AVM 50, and a Kuro display: all three can do video processing.

How would you recommend I set them up to get the best video performance?

Thank you in advance,
Ron

But for the best Analog audio from OPPO you would need to get the 105/105D. Their primary purpose is to provide a more exotic Analog audio output solution.

Thank you
You have been most kind with your time.

Hopefully I can get it or make it for cheaper!

103D Freezing

when I first power up my oppo and go directly to vudu the unit freezes up and shows the oppo logo, I then have to manually turn the unit off. If I go to anything else on the main menu it works fine, if I open something first then go back to the menu vudu will open. Any suggestions as to what is going on. Thanks Frank

Odds are you are launching VUDU before networking has woken up. Try setting Quick Start or allow more time before you launch VUDU.

1080p to the Anthem with HDMI LPCM audio. From the Anthem to the Kuro, whatever works best when you check with your calibration disc. Many folks say 1080p with Studio RGB works best to their Kuro.

Cool usb hd device while waiting for oppo

I am hoping the oppo (or a new avr) will support usb 2.0 portable hard drives as a music library (retiring 2 cd jukeboxes) and as a playback option of cd quality msic.

I am guessing there will be limitations and some compatibility issues here - your input/advice will be appreciated.

Thx guys

You select the media files to play using the file browser built into the player or via the MediaControl app on your iOS or Android device.

The Manual for the player is downloadable from the OPPO Digital web site.

Before you start ripping, give careful thought to file/folder structures and by all means use tags and imbedded artwork. A good ripping tool can automate all this for you. How you proceed will have a big impact on your enjoyment of the collection. The Oppo can search files by tags or by folder structure.

All good advice, and I would add that it's essential to rip your CDs to lossless file formats such as FLAC or WAV. Don't bother with mp3s!

Note that WAV files don't support tags or embedded artwork, although I understand there are some programs that can add tags (haven't tried this).

pbarach: Thanks for the advice and can you recommend ripping sw & maybe a favored usb hard drive of 2 TBs. I have ALWAYS hated mp3s!!!

I am from the generation of 45s,78s, & 33 1/3 lps - quality audio has always mattered.

What are 78s; is that from the 20s, 30s and 40s?

My Grandma had 78's.

I use JRiver. Rips right to FLAC. OPPO picks it right off the network.

I am from the generation of 45s,78s, & 33 1/3 lps - quality audio has always mattered.
I am also from the black-disc generation. Started gathering classical 78s at age 10. I copied them all to CDs and gave them away. I have 9 boxes of classical LPs in a closet. Haven't listened to them since I copied the ones I want onto CDs--they are too much trouble to deal with, and the clicks and pops are annoying...

I use foobar2000 (freeware; http://www.foobar2000.org) to do most of my ripping. It rips directly to WAV, FLAC, or (if you want) mp3. It can do tagging on FLAC or mp3 files. I don't see a need to pay up for a software program to do this. I sometimes use the dumbed-down version of Roxio that came with my PC. If a CD has some errors, I get the best results with ExactAudioCopy, another freeware program (http://www.exactaudiocopy.de) that has some options that can sometimes make a good digital copy where other programs won't. I haven't seen the need to buy JRiver or any other ripping program.

Hello. New member here. Just pulled the trigger on the 103. Been upgrading some of my ancient system. I just bought a BenQ HT1075 to replace the Marantz VP4001 I've had for many years. Most of which it's been dead with blown lamps!!! Anyway, my older Halo pre/pro either needs to go or I can buy an Oppo and let it do it's thing. Being how my budget right now won't allow me to get a pre/pro that fits my tastes, the BDP 103, and it's analog out will make due for now until I can upgrade to a new processor.
Plus it has bass management, time alignment... for the analog outs so my Halo's lifespan just got extended! And now I can enjoy my DVD-Audio collection and start picking up some SACD's I've always wanted!!!
This is what I'm hoping to do with the Oppo BDP103


Dig Coax out to my Tri-Vista Tube Dac for 2ch (cd playback)
7.1ch analog outs to my Halo C2 for surround playback (Blu-ray, DVD, SACD, DVD-Audio)
Both HDMI output (w/out audio) 1 to my projector & the other to my Plasma


Any reason this won't work? Can the audio be turned off on the HDMI outs? Will I have full 1080P to both displays? I won't run them at the same time. I will use the projector(BenQ Ht1075) for movies and the occasional UFC or other sporting event. Plasma for the Xbox One and everything else.


Thanks for the help...
