The Surrounds will be down-mixed into LF/RF on the same side.

Thanks very much

With Stereo Signal FRONT LEFT/RIGHT, the Dedicated Stereo Outputs become the equivalent of the normal LF/RF outputs, so wiring them becomes part of wiring for multi-channel Analog.

With Stereo Signal DOWN-MIXED STEREO, the Dedicated Stereo Outputs operate independent of the multi-channel Speaker Configuration -- i.e., for when you want to wire them DISTINCT FROM the multi-channel Analog wiring.

is the darbee edition worth the price if you have a 4K TV and AVR?

"Worth" is something that's personal. There are a lot of happy 105 owners posting in this thread including me. We'll all tell you that our machine was worth it. There are a lot of happy 105D owners who'll tell you the same about their machine. The naysayers are mostly somewhere else.

We all bought our machines for a variety of reasons, and came from different previous machines. The 105 and 105D aren't cheap, especially here in Australia where the price is probably more than 25% more expensive than in the US but there are a lot of people who think they are worth it. There are others who don't. Who knows what you will think. You're the only one who can decide whether it is worth it to you.

What I will say is that I already had my 105 when the 105D was released. I ended up buying a Darbee Darblet because that was cheaper than buying a 105D when I already had a 105. I used it for some months and stopped, but I don't have a 4K TV so I can't comment on how it goes with one of them. I can say that if I hadn't had the 105 already and I was buying a 105 model after the 105D was released, I would opt for the 105D because it has some audio processing features that the 105 doesn't, even though I decided that I preferred watching things without using Darbee processing. The 105/105D aren't all about video quality and processing. If all you're interested in is video processing and you're sending digital audio to your AVR for conversion to analog, don't get a 105 or 105D, get a 103 or 103D. There's no advantage to the 105 models unless you're using their analog audio processing. Video and digital sound output are the same for the 105 and 103, and for the 105D and 103D. The reason to buy a 105/105D instead of a 103/103D is purely because of the analog audio processing.

Just to clarify...

"The OPPO BDP-103 and BDP-105 share the same primary components (including the mainboard, laser, and loader) for superb audio and video playback, and while the BDP-103 and BDP-105 are identical in performance when it comes to audio and video over HDMI, the BDP-105 offers a number of enhancements:

The BDP-105 features improved sound quality from its analog audio outputs with its implementation of dual 32-bit ESS Technology digital-to-analog converters, a toroidal power supply, and two sets of dedicated stereo analog outputs (balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA) for 2-channel enthusiasts. Customers who do a great deal of critical music listening using a very high end, analog connected system will benefit most from these additions.

The BDP-105 features a headphone amplifier for use with high-quality headphones.

The BDP-105 features three additional digital audio inputs: optical, coaxial, and a 2-channel asynchronous USB DAC input.

Furthermore, the BDP-105 is graced with additional aesthetic and ergonomic enhancements that include a larger 4.8 inch tall chassis, sculpted aluminum front panel, touch sensitive front-panel playback controls, availability of an optional rack mount kit, and availability in Black or Silver."

Thanks for noting audio as a reason to decide but there are some differences between these two: the 105 & the 105D (not the 103).

I am unclear on all the differences in audio between these two. It will be helpful if someone can please list the specific audio differences between 105 & 105D. My thanks in advance to anyone who can provide or point to a list comparing the two versions of the 105.

I know aspects of this have been covered in various comments throughout the (long) thread, but it will help me as I consider finally buying, to see the AUDIO features/performance differences of the 105 & 105D listed in one post here.

For example, I think there is a difference between the 105 & 105D on what they can do with dsdiff files, e.g. hi-res downloads. Is this correct? Are there other differences?

I posted the below in the 103 owners thread and thought I would post it here as well.

I have a question regarding the analog volume control on the 103. I was going to try using the 103 as a preamp when playing SACDs. It would just be a quick unscientific comparison between the 103 as a preamp and my Parasound 2100 preamp. But I wanted to make sure I had the volume level on the 103 set at a low enough level so that my speakers or amp wouldn't be damaged.

So I tried lowering the volume level and it did not make any difference in the volume level till I reached "0" and the sound output was muted. This is when using the analog outputs (FL and RL of the 103 to the 2100. I didn't quite understand why the volume was not decreased but then I thought it was because I was using DSD for SACD output. When I swapped the setting to PCM the volume level decreased when I lowered the volume from 100 down.

Is it true due to the way the volume control is setup with the 103 in that when DSD is selected that the volume control is bypassed? If so does the 105 function the same? If it does it seems odd that if one uses the 103 or 105 as a preamp that one could not use the DSD setting. But maybe the 105's volume level is configured differently. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated .

Correct, the volume control on the 103 will only function for DSD when you tell the player to convert it to PCM (as you found). The 105's volume control will adjust the volume either way. The volume control is in the DAC, the DAC in the 103 can't perform volume control on DSD.

Help with USB out from iMac to BD-105

Hello.

I was wondering if maybe someone here can help me.

I usually stream iTunes music from my iMac to AppleTV and HDMI out from AppleTV to my Rotel RSP-1572 HDMI in. When I listen to CDs and Pandora, I use Oppo analog out to Rotel analog in, everything works just great.

I wanted to try running a USB A-B cable from my iMac to the USB input in the rear of the Oppo and listen to my iTunes music collection that way. Trying to go USB A-B from iMac to USB in on Oppo and then analog out from Oppo to Rotel.

I hooked up the USB A-B cable from the iMac to the Oppo and the music is not playing.

I went into the Oppo input menu and selected USB Audio In, the Oppo on screen menu on my tv has "USB Audio In:Audio LPCM 2.0 192K" on the top of the screen, and on the bottom of the screen "HDMI 1: 1080P@60Hz 4:4:4 24b LPCM 2.0 192K HDMI 2: Not Connected".

The Oppo front panel has "USB DAC IN" displayed.

So I called Oppo, and the tech support gentleman told me to go into the Audio Midi Set Up on my iMac, and ensure that the Oppo was showing up as a devise, which it is, and make sure the format setting was set to 192000.0 Hz, which it is. He then had me go into the drop down menu for the device and select "use this devise for sound output", which is now shaded along with use this "devise for sound input". Both were not shaded, but I was playing around trying to figure out why it was not playing, now both are shaded and I can't unshade either. Even when both were not shaded, nothing was playing. The volume on all devises and iTunes is full volume, Rotel at 55, so all volumes are up.

So the guy at Oppo told me it seems as though all my settings are correct, he stated the only reason left for it not to be playing is because I have a 15' USB A-B cable. He said he heard that USB has a 12' to 13' maximum length, so he stated he believes the length of the cable is why nothing is playing. To me, the length should not matter, but this is what he said.

So I have attached some screen shots of the Audio Midi Setup and the TV screen to maybe help diagnose the problem.

Anyone have any idea why this is not playing, or is he correct in stating the length of the cable is the reason? If it matters, I got a cheap $20 cable from Startech.com from Amazon, just to make sure everything worked, then I was going to get a 15' Audioquest USB A-B. I wanted to make sure everything worked before laying out $200 for the cable.

Anyone replying, if you would be so kind as to be very descriptive in your remedy, I am only 2 years into this hobby and not extremely knowledgeable as of yet. Please let me know if I can provide anymore info, I tried to be as thorough as possible in describing everything.

Thanks in advance for any help, it is appreciated.

Latest Public Beta Test Release

Release date: September 12, 2014.
Category: Latest Public Beta Test Release

Main Version: BDP10X-77-0827B
Loader Version: 6U1000 or 7B1300 (BDP-103), 7B1300 (BDP-105, BDP-105D, BDP-103D)
Sub Version: MCU103-05-0916 (BDP-103), MCU105-04-1113 (BDP-105), MCU13D-01-0618 (BDP-103D), MCU15D-01-0930 (BDP-105D), DB10X 131030 (BDP-103D, 105D)

Click here to download the BIN file for firmware version: BDP10X-77-0827B.

Click here to download the firmware CD image file BDP10X-77-0827B-CD-Image.iso.

Warning: Although firmware upgrade is an easy and usually trouble-free process, it is important to ensure that the power supply to the player is stable, and the upgrade process is not interrupted. A failed firmware upgrade can render the player unusable.

This release is still a beta test version, not an official release. Use it only if you would like to experiment with the new features and improvements. There is a very small chance of the new features and improvements not working properly. If that happens, please report any issue to us.

Release Notes:

This release is for the OPPO BDP-103, BDP-103D, BDP-105 and BDP-105D Blu-ray Disc players.

Special Notice:
  1. Once this Public Beta firmware is installed on the player, you can revert back to the previous Official release via a USB thumb drive. There will be no issues upgrading to any future official or beta firmware release.
  2. It is recommended that the user performs a "Reset Factory Defaults" operation after the firmware is installed. Please write down your special settings before doing this, and remember to re-apply your settings and adjust the proper volume level (if applicable) before you play any content. You may experience stability issues if this step is not performed.
  3. This Public Beta firmware is designed to work with new versions of Apple iOS and Android media control applications, which add new features like DMS (digital media server), DMC (digital media controller), virtual keyboard, player settings, and disc playback controls. The Media Control V3.0 will be available in the Apple Store and the Android Play Store shortly.
Comparing to the current Official release version BDP10X-75-0515, the major changes included in this version are:
  1. Resolved a Color Space issue for the HDMI 1 Out in BDP-103D/105D. Customers reported that if the Resolution was set to Source Direct and the Color Space was set to RGB Video Level, the actual color space sent out was RGB PC Level. This issue has been fixed in this firmware.
  2. Resolved a Picture Adjustment issue found on 75-0515 firmware. Customers reported that after changing the Picture Adjustment parameters for HDMI 1, the value of Contrast Enhancement would automatically go back to 0. It has been fixed in this firmware.
  3. Resolved a playback issue with regular DVD discs found on 75-0515 firmware. Customers reported that if the "DVD 24p Conversion" was set to "On", pressing the REV (rewind) button within the DVD playback could cause the player to immediately freeze up. This issue has been resolved in this firmware.
  4. Resolved a HDMI Audio issue with some 2L Blu-ray Music discs. Customers reported that if the AV Sync was set to 90ms and above, there might be no audio signal from both HDMI outputs.
  5. Modified the RS-232 serial control protocol: we eliminated the "#APP FFR" due to the removal of Film Fresh service, added the "#APP BER" to enable access to the Berlin Philharmoniker concert service, also fixed an issue with "#SZM" that could not change the Aspect Ratio.
  6. Added support for the “Pandora Premiers” station in Pandora.
  7. Improved the Gapless Playback feature, and resolved an issue where the gapless mode could not be enabled for some 96 kHz / 24-bit WAV files.
  8. Improved support for CUE files, specifically for CUE files that point to multiple WAV files.
  9. All features and improvements of the previous firmware are also included in this version.

CD playback from any track other than #1

Hello. I am not going to read 11,500 posts before knowing if my question has already been answered, so I apologise if this question is a repetition.

I often want to play a CD or SACD starting from a track other than the first track. However, no matter whether I have autoplay turned off or on, I cannot stop the 105 from starting to play the first track as soon as I select the disk on the home screen.

A friend with a 95 says he has no problem doing this. With autoplay off, when he inserts a disk, he only has to press on the remote the track number that he wants to start with and then press play. I cannot do this with the 105.

It is quite frustrating, constantly trying to hit 'pause' as soon as the 105 is about to start playing track #1, and often as not failing to stop the first half second or so of track #1 belting out.

It's only a hobby

Sure enough, that's broken. Good catch! I wonder when that stopped working?

I'll report it to OPPO through Beta Tester channels.

^ Tnargs, I have confirmed your observations with CD playback. It seems as soon as the CD icon is selected from the Oppo's home menu, the player treats that as the "play" button. Rather than trying to press the pause button before the first track starts playing, try hitting the "next" track button on the remote. I was able to play any track i wanted to without any of the previous track playing whatsoever. I'm not sure if Oppo intentionally wanted to make the selection of the CD icon immediately play the CD, but for the majority who want to play the first track of their inserted CD, it saves them an extra step. But, then again, that's what the "play" button on the remote is for...to "commence" CD playback.

^ When a disc is loaded but not playing, and the Disc icon is highlight on Home Menu, Play and Enter both initiate playback. That's intentional.

^ Ok, so the player not responding to the number buttons on the remote once the CD has been loaded and before play initiates is the anomaly. Got it!

That's right. Typing the numbers at that point causes the number you type to display on the top right of the screen, but there is no way I can find to do anything with the number, such as play that track.

Note that the behaviour is the same with SACD discs. And I cannot find a way to show a track list page for SACD. IIRC my old DV980HD could do this, albeit it was merely a list of track numbers.

It's only a hobby

I'm thinking of upgrading my 103 to the 105. I looked at the 105 manual and did not see what audio formats are supported when connecting an external hard drive to USB1 or USB2 inputs. Will the USB inputs accept DSD files? I'm almost positive I read that the USB inputs of both the 103 and the 105 accept DSD files but I wanted to make sure. Thanks .

Yes, DSD files (MCh and stereo) play fine from a USB disc.
Even cue files and a whole album .dsf file play fine, which is my preferred format now as although they are not able to be tagged, at least play back gapless.

Mark

^ The 105D (but not the 105) also allows Stereo DSD, both single and double rate, into its Asynchronous USB DAC Input.

Click here to download the BIN file for firmware version: BDP10X-77-0827B.

Click here to download the firmware CD image file BDP10X-77-0827B-CD-Image.iso.

Warning: Although firmware upgrade is an easy and usually trouble-free process, it is important to ensure that the power supply to the player is stable, and the upgrade process is not interrupted. A failed firmware upgrade can render the player unusable.

This release is still a beta test version, not an official release. Use it only if you would like to experiment with the new features and improvements. There is a very small chance of the new features and improvements not working properly. If that happens, please report any issue to us.

A word of caution for all those using their BDP's as a preamp or otherwise using variable volume.
It is a good idea to turn off your amp or at least make sure there is nothing to playing so you can check the volume settings prior to use.

Also, I just discovered that the SuperDisk was required to restore mutli-region DVD playback.
Reapplying the SuperDisk reset the variable volume to volume to 100% and reset the max volume to 100, and set the power-on volume to last.
My Netflix credentials were also wiped.

Maybe / maybe not.
Sometimes it takes a while for beta fw to become available for other regions after it is released for Region1 players first.
Sometimes, the beta fw is very short lived and an official fw could be released soon after, without the beta even reaching other regions.
If you are very interested, I would advise contacting the powers that be at http://www.oppodigital.com.au/ and ask them directly.

Hi folks. For your inf. here is my dialog with Oppo Customer Service on Sept. 8.


Me: Hello, I own a BDP-105 player. Is there any way that you can adapt the player so that it could provide Dolby Atmos channels in a 5.1.2 mode? (The user would designate the existing surround back left and surround back right channel outputs to instead output Atmos channel sounds.)


Oppo Customer Service: At this time we do not know if we will be able to support Atmos in our player due to a lack of DSP capabilities. This is something that is currently being investigated, but we do not know when or if we can add this to a future release.

An Atmos soundtrack is supposed to be fully backward compatible. Any current Blu-Ray player conforming to the Blu-Ray specification (all Oppo players fall into this category) can produce an Atmos bitstream for Atmos-encoded discs. An Atmos-capable AVR or pre/pro would be required to decode that bitstream for Atmos. In the absence of an Atmos-compatible AVR or pre/pro, the sound track should be able to be decoded to either 5.1 or 7.1 (depending on its encoding). What is not clear to me at this point is whether that 5.1 or 7.1 soundtrack would be lossless or not. It is also possible that BR discs encoded for Atmos could also carry a DTS HD soundtrack, if there was sufficient room. Are you looking for the Oppos to decode Atmos internally? That would be something different and would still require the appropriate height speakers to deliver true Atmos and the Oppo analog outs are certainly not set up for height speakers.
