Its just the way it sounds.

I think it has something to do with low pass filter and its rolloff,bryston has 24db octave filter,where oppo must have something like 12db,which would be very unusual for low freq.
Probably it has 18db and that is the culprit!
From my experience,difference between 18db and 24db can be huge.

It can take up to 4vrms in bypass mode.
Never heard of an 18dB slope. The OPPO is 12dB.

I had some old "Infinite Slope" brand speakers years ago that had 100+dB-per-octave crossovers. Loved the sound of the speakers - but really can't say whether the crossover slope did anything for them. I suspect that it did, since the phase distortion problem that is inherent in crossovers was mitigated to a great degree. But now we have DSPs that can compensate for that to some degree, and there are both advantages and disadvantages to both conventional and "hard-wall" crossovers. The Audio Theory forum ought to have a good discussion about this.
