Do you happen to remember what level of compression was used to generate your 96.0KHz/24-bit.ape test files?

Earlier today I generated some using 'Compression 1' and they're still not played back gaplessly. The end of each track is still very, very slightly chopped off before moving onto the next track. I'll generate some more test files using 'Compression 2, 3, 4 and 5' and report back...

EDIT: I also received an e-mail today from Oppo regarding my bug report. They're very good aren't they wink.gif

The file properties indicate "normal compression" and "47% compressed". That's the default in dbPoweramp, which I use for conversions. The choices are fast, normal, high, extra high and insane. Normal is the default. I used that in both the 24/96 and 16/44 conversions.

Here are my results with 2Ch APE (44.1KHz/16-bit) gapless playback: -

Audio Sources: 7No 2Ch PCM (44.1KHz/16-bit).WAV files (123MB).
Audio Encoding Application: LameXP v4.10 Beta-2 (Build 1546 - 2014-05-04) which utilises binary v4.12 (2013-06-26).

When using: Compression 1 - Fast (72.0MB). The end of each track is slightly chopped off, before moving onto the next track.
When using: Compression 2 - Normal (70.9MB). The end of each track is chopped off a bit more, before moving onto the next track.
When using: Compression 3 - High (70.7MB). The end of each track is chopped off even more, before moving onto the next track.
When using: Compression 4 - Extra High (70.3MB). The end of each track is chopped off a lot more, before moving onto the next track.
When using: Compression 5 - Insane (70.1MB). There is no playback at all. Indeed you can't play the .ape audio file at all using this compression setting.

So the greater the 'compression level', the worse the playback becomes eek.gif

It would seem from the following response that Oppo have not understood the FLAC 'skipping' and APE 'chopped' issue: -
Quote:
We downloaded the FLAC files and can confirm that the files will be able to playback in a gapless manner using attached USB storage and engaging Gappless Play under the OPTIONS menu of the player.

Gapless APE will also work, but not if you are combining the two format types. You can only engage gapless playback when playing back the same media type, bit rate and sampling rate. If any of these three conditions are not met, then the gapless playback will not engage.

Best Regards,

Customer Service
So what now?

^ Explain again, of course.

Yes, the files are engaging "Gapless", but it is not working correctly.

Add your new info on Compression dependencies.

Okay, I've just sent Oppo the following email....
Quote:
Hi Oppo,

Agreed, the FLAC files do indeed play back in a gapless manner but that's not the issue. The issue is that the second and successive FLAC files begin to skip. Please see my latest report here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1466929/oppo-bdp-103-105-cue-files-gapless-playback-support/100_50#post_24704297

Cheers
Let's see if this works wink.gif

To be honest, it is always best to write your responses direct, rather than linking to a AVS Forum thread. The OPPO CSR/Engineers may only be looking at your initial (linked to) post, and not successive posts. The language used in the later posts makes much clearer what your issues are versus your initial post from two days ago, so giving OPPO the latest information direct in the E-Mail would like result in better support in the future.

EDIT: Nevermind. Not familiar enough with the songs that you have provided, but Golden Slumbers ends in a "Lullaby-ieee", so if you were just listening or Lullaby the transition sounds correct.

According to the firmwares 'Special Notice' the following improvements (associated with this topic) have been implemented: -

07: 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.
08: Improved support for CUE files, specifically for CUE files that point to multiple WAV files.

Multi target files in one cue

I saw that with interest too.


Has anyone got an example of a .cue file that works, which they could post, which shows how to insert references to multiple target files.


For example, here is the top part of one of my cue files for a 2 disc set. I have two cue files, one for each disc, but it is a live album so one cue file could play it all in one go (albeit with a fade out and fade in between discs)


Do I just paste in the 2nd cue file contents onto the end as I have done below???



PERFORMER"George Harrison"
TITLE "1992Live In Japan (Disc 1) (DSD 2Ch)"
FILE "1992Live In Japan (Disc 1) (DSD 2Ch).dff" DFF
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "I Want To Tell You"
PERFORMER "George Harrison"
ISRC GBEXP0300056

Simply add additional FILE lines for each file in the order you want them to play, followed by TRACK, INDEX, etc., info for each track contained in that file. Note that you will need to *INDENT* the lines following each FILE line, up to the next FILE line.

You'll need to have just one set of global information lines -- i.e., the lines that appear prior to the first FILE line. So you can't simply append the CUE files end to end.

You guys are light years ahead of me on building cue files, etc. I'm just happy that I can get FLAC files on a USB drive to run gapless using the Oppo MediaControl app (iOS). Until today I didn't realize you could change playback to gapless by holding down a filename in the album folder to invoke gapless. This just made listening to Pink Floyd's Endless River much more enjoyable. When my media server is delivered next week I'm sure I'll be back here to figure out how this all works through the asynchronous input.

McIntosh MX121. McIntosh MC205. Focal Aria 948 Main Speakers, Aria CC900 Center. Focal Electra IC 1002 In-Ceiling Surrounds. Paradigm Studio Sub 15. Oppo BDP-105D. Roku XS. Roku 3. Apple TV(3). "Silenzio" EA-2 Media Server (pc-based). DirecTV. Panasonic TC-P65VT50. Samsung UN40FH6030F, URC MX-780.
My current SACD list

Hey guys,



I just got a 105Dand so far it is perfect except for this issue. I tried cuetools but it did not work. After reading through this thread it seems like it had not really not been fixed.



I mostly listen to 24/96 needle drop files. I have been recording and playing from the computer using Sound forge 10.0. The 105 will play the files but not skip forward. I tried inserting CD tracks and or regions neither worked.



The 105 sound is pretty much equal to the computer, using the USB dac in my McIntosh C2500 pre. So if it turns out to be a big pain I may stick with the computer. Mostly I would like to use the 105 to help conserve energy, every little bit helps.

Hello,
I have Oppo BDP-105D, new firmware: BDP10X-77-0827.
I can't play files (flac, wave) in gapless mode, also from a stream (NAS) and USB. There are short gaps, about 2 seconds, between tracks (for example The Wall). There is no problem when I play the music directly from CD. I ripped my CD - the same. When I play streaming music with for example using foobar2000 in PC there is no problem, unfortunately Oppo "adds" gaps. I ripped my CD once again- the same. Is it possible? What is wrong? What's going on? Would you help me?

I use Synology's NAS, streaming with foobar2000 or iphone.

Best Regards
Krzysztof Poniecki

You have to select Gapless each time you start playback. For the files on an attached hard drive, browse to the starting track using the player's media file browser. Instead of selecting that track (or pressing Play), press Option and choose Gapless from the list that pops up on screen. For streaming from an SMB (not DLNA) file server, you can also initiate Gapless, but in this case you need to use the iOS or Android MediaControl app from OPPO. In the app, browse to the starting track. Tap and Hold on that track for a moment and an option will appear to initiate Gapless.

If you've done it right, the on-screen Now Playing page will show "Gapless" above the displayed time line for the track now playing.

Hi,
Thank for your quick answer. Unfortunately I stream from an DLNA file server so I never can't initiate Gapless? Is it possible?

^ It is not possible. You would need to rip your music into a single file. Depending on the capabilities of your DLNA server, you might be able to do that along with "CUE" files which let the DLNA server locate individual tracks for you within that single file.

Hello,
I've just received reply from Oppo Europe.
"Dear Krzysztof

Gapless playback is under development and are only possible on USB streaming at the time, if you press the OPTION button on the remote when playing files the gapless menu should appear.
