I just ordered my Oppo BDP-103D today. I scored one a refub for $489. I can't want to connect this to my HU9000.

Hey guys, I am currently on class for ISF calibration and a neighboring student refuses to believe the Oppo can output 4K at 50/60Hz via HDMI 1.4, am I correct that it does? I see it in my settings menus but do not have a 4K set to test.

Thanks

Oppo certainly has.

You could always make a bet with your buddy - get a 4K TV (the bigger the better) and run a test with the BDP-103D. If it works, he pays for the set and you get to keep it. If it doesn't work, you pay for the set and he gets to keep it.

It's not loud, just I can hear it if I focus.

The proper setting for sharpness is always0.
Also my Oppo BDP-103D is region free.
That makes me awesome.

I was actually referring to Kellybob's post. He seems to hear a lot more noise than you do.
In your case, it seems to be normal ambient sound.
Any component with moving parts is going to make a sound.
However almost no one ever complains that the current Oppo players are noisy,
because 99.999% of the time, it can't be heard when listening to content at normal levels and normal seating distances from the player.
The closest seat in my theater room to my player is 2-3 feet.
I have watched a movie from beginning to end in that seat and never heard any noise from the player during playback of the movie,
not even during quiet passages.

The room has to be dead silent to hear anything.
At the most it sounds like almost nothing.

Like air circulating through a vent passively at best.

Nothing compared to the 93, or the 83.

We've heard nothing about a new player.

Consensus opinion by those who are willing to guess is that OPPO might wait for the next market to stabilize first: 4K disc specs, HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2, etc. This is going to be a very bad period for early adopters and OPPO might want to delay until the ugliness is over.

But that's guessing.

In the interim they have audiophile headphones and headphone amps that are getting well reviewed, although perhaps not of much interest to the majority of customers.

I was having trouble trying to watch a 3D movie for the first time a couple of weeks ago. The screen would go black for a moment and then the movie would pick up, but it would sometimes not be in 3D. I tried with several movies, and it kept happening.

Then I read o p. 54 of the manual about setting 3D to Blank HDMI 2 "Yes" to address getting no audio. I wondered if it would address my problem as well, and I was pleased to find out it did. I've watched a couple of 3D movies since with no problems.

Holy cow, you read the manual?
Somebody show that person the door, we can't have that sort of thing in here!

If your AVR does in fact support 3D, you might have a dodgy HDMI connection there.

I always read the manual, the instructions, etc., even if it's indecipherable, like the manual for my Denon 4310, which is not 3D capable.

After being on the fence on whether to buy a 103D to replace my still working great 83, I called Oppo, and to my surprise, they had quite a few refurbished 103D's in stock. As others have posted, $489.00 with full 2 year warranty + tax and shipping came to $543.79


Soooooo, if anybody is on the fence about getting a 103D, and especially a refurbished one, call Oppo asap since they are in stock.

What range of Darbee settings are folks using and have found best? Would appreciate some advise on where to start with the settings. Want maximum picture quality from my Panasonic 65ZT60 without artifacts. Much appreciated.

I'm interested in this refurb, but why you have to call them? I'm in Australia so the time zone and calling cost is a problem, and then speaking over the phone for the address, credit card etc is also much more difficult and easy to get wrong. Is there anyway to order online?
