+1... minus the Darbee feature, what is its advantage over other BDP and/or NMT.

I have a question about the Oppo MediaControl App for Android.

Does the shuffle function work ?

I have tried this various times but the songs in the folder still continue to play in normal sequence.

OPPO has a lot of features, not all of which are of interest to every user. The company's web pages has details, but the things that usually occur to me:

  • SACD and DVD-A.
  • 50hz support for both PAL DVD and imported Blu-rays
  • Zoom controls include vertical stretch for anamorphic lens projectors
  • HDMI inputs
  • DLNA and SMB networking
  • 7.1 analog audio output for those who need it; RCA and balanced stereo on the 105 models
  • Commitment to A/V quality, showing "textbook" signals when tested
  • Most of their sales are direct to the customer, meaning you don't pay for the distribution chain
  • Build quality, repairability, 2-year warranty standard. Excellent customer support.

OPPO is an enthusiasts brand, a small company run by people who give a damn.

I had to remember to eject the disk before it started playing again, otherwise it would become stuck (unresponsive) again. I will call Oppo support today.

BTW, I put the first Merlin BD on my cheapo LG player and everything worked fine.

The reset seems to get it working for a short time and then it stops after that until I re-do the reset all over again.
I finally found an Oppo CSR that was able to fix the problems I was having with Vudu and the Merlin series. I was still running the last beta firmware and when you have the latest beta firmware, it will not prompt you to install the latest final firmware. He walked me through installing the latest firmware via USB and now everything is working fine. I don't think I will even install another beta firmware and don't even remember what compelling reason there was for me to install it the last time.

I have Kuro 151.
But I plan to use the 103 or 103d in the new HT with plans to get the Sony VW300ES/350ES.

I can live with the mains not being able to boom like a sub, but it's distracting when the low frequency cuts out. The speakers do ok for bass heavy CD music. Didn't realize Dolby spec says to drop content when down mixing. It's not really mixing at that point, if it's just being dropped. It would have been nice to have the option, but I guess can't fault Oppo for following the specs.
You missed the point about how the LFE channel CANNOT be mixed into the L-R without overloading it. That's why we have the LFE channel in the first place - to allow VLF at higher levels than the L-R can tolerate without overloading (clipping). According to the specs, the LFE channel *should* contain audio that's duplicated from the main channels, its supposed to be a boost to the VLF. None of that accounts for goofy audio mixing that goes on, where special effects are found only in the LFE channel. That's outside the specs and is done for wow-factor, there's nothing to prevent a studio from doing that.
For music, the LFE channel has almost no practical function except for bass steering done in your processor to compensate for main speaker limitations.
