Hope the Oppo operates w/o hiccups. Let's see if this baby is really worth the hefty price tag.
I've done all of these, and it works without much of an issue. The streams, once started are very good.

I've moved a lot of my DVD's to VUDU for the upgrade to 1080p (they charge a fairly small fee) so I can see movies that have not made it to Bluray in HD (example: Milagro Beanfield War).

I actually have also gotten into streaming music and like Pandora quite a bit. I tried the Philarmoniker for classical music, and it's excellent, will sign on when motivated.

I've got quite a bit of video, both homegrown and ripped as well as MP3, FLAC and DSD music; all of it sounds great and now that the android app is there, easy to get to.

I'm not familiar with the Marantz, but the 103D is my third Oppo. I've had a DVD player, a Blu-ray player and now a 3D Blu-ray player. One advantage of all three is that they've all been able to play DVD-Audios and SACDs. If you're into high-definition music, this "universal player" aspect is a strong advantage to Oppos over most other players. It's definitely key for me.


Another advantage is that it seems like all their players will play nearly anything you throw at them. DVDs ripped to DVD+R or DVD-R or DVD-R/W? not a problem. MKV files on a memory stick? Good to go. MP3 files? Of course. FLAC files (stereo or multi-channel, standard resolution or 192kHz, 24-bit)? You bet! SACD ISO images burned to DVD+R or DVD-R? Well, on the BDP-80, they worked great (I never tried them on the DVD 981HD). On the new 103D, Oppo has dropped that ability, no doubt due to its questionable legality. However, I'm using SACDExtract to rip all my SACD-Rs to DSF files and playing them from an external hard drive. In fact, I've ripped my entire CD and DVD-Audio collections (and now my SACD collection as well) and listen to them all from the hard drive.


And how about the ability to be modified (by hardware for Blu-rays or software for DVDs) to be able to play discs from other regions? Got some film in mind that is for sale in Europe but not in the US? Oppo can probably get you there. I'll admit, that hasn't been a big deal for me but I've got friends who live and die by movies (especially Japanese) that they can't get in the US.


If you've read up anything on the Darbee Darblett devices, you might have been intrigued. I know I was. I just wasn't willing to spend $200 - $300 to get it. However, the 103D and the 105D now have that built-in and for only $100 more than the "base" 103 and 105 devices. And since they each have two HDMI inputs, I'm able to apply the Darbee effect not just to Blu-rays and streamed video but to my media player and my satellite receiver.


Somebody else mentioned test patterns. I don't care what tests you throw at them, the Oppo players always seem to come out on top of the heap when it comes to reviewed DVD and Blu-ray players. They are crazy good.


And lastly, they're built like tanks. I've never had an Oppo fail on me. I don't throw them away, I give them away or sell them and they remain in use, often heavy use.


Is all that worth a higher price? To me, it is. Heck, I just bought the 103D for $600 where I bought a Blu-ray/DVD/CD (non-3D) player for my sister for $35. Hers is also tiny, like not much bigger than an old Sony Walkman. She loves it. But then she also thinks her 32" LCD set is the cats pajamas. I run my Oppo into a calibrated Panasonic plasma set and dream of OLED and what comes after that. So it's really up to you. Is all this worth the extra bucks to you? If so, get the Oppo? If not, get the Marantz or something cheaper yet and be glad you're not as critical as some of us. You'll save big bucks in the long run if you can find lesser audio and video equipment to be acceptable.


Good luck!

As JerryElbow has said, it plays EVERYTHING. Also, if you've got a nice 5.1+ setup and you're not using it to listen to music, you're truly missing out. You won't find some cheapy blu-ray player that will play 5.1 flac files. It's silent, too. I dumped my Samsung discount 3D blu-ray player because it was annoyingly loud. I don't want to hear gears turning when I watch a movie.

If you are trying to choose between a high end Bluray player and a sub $100 player the choice should be simple. Other members have posted the advantages of an Oppo. So the question you need to ask is, do you need all of those extras or would you be happy with a basic player? Don't waste your money if you don't need or want the extras.

Harmony remote programming help

I have a Dish STB connected to the rear HDMI input of my Oppo and am having problems trying to automate the switch from NetFlix on the Oppo to the Dish STB. The Oppo does not let you switch inputs while NetFlix is running. The workaround is to always backup out of NetFlix before changing the activity on the Harmony remote.

I was wondering if anybody has ideas for how to do a one button switch between NetFlix and the rear input. With my older programmable remote I would just start the switch sequence by sending a power on/off to the Oppo, but the Harmony does seem to have that capability. I could probably program that at the end of the switch, but was hoping for a more elegant solution.

Any ideas?

BTW, have the same problem when I have NetFlix running on my TV and want to change activities.

i have an issue with my 103D, i recently started watching blu ray 3d movies, but they arent automatically playing in 3D even tho they are 3D discs, i tried going into settings for 3d and going to FORCED, and AUTO, and they still dont play in 3d. the only way to get 3d is to press the 3d button on my tv remote, but am i getting true 3d or am i just getting the tvs own conversion? I also had another issue, and since I just got my 4k tv, im not sure where this issue came from. I use upscale to 4k on the oppo for everything now, and i went to the kitchen and came back and there was an oppo message on the screen taht said "this device is not 4k compatible" and it went back to "direct source" and the image on the screen was horrible, it was actually way worse than the direct cable source i had on. i had to unplug a few things to get the 4k upscale to work again. any ideas?

Check that you don't have the HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 outputs reversed, it's easy to do. Use HDMI 1 for your 3D video.

^ As a test, run HDMI 1 direct to the display for video and HDMI 2 to the Sony AVR for audio. Also temporarily disconnect the HDMI output from the AVR. Do you get proper 3D and 4K that way?

If so, then there may be a settings error in the AVR when trying to pass 3D and 4K through the AVR. For example, you may need to use a specific HDMI input or output socket, or enable pass through.

Check the owners thread for your AVR here, too.

What is the difference between a regular Oppo and a region free Oppo? I can buy a new Oppo for $740 or a new region free Oppo from Ebay for about $500. Is there a reason the region free is cheaper and if it's a good deal or stay away from it?

Prices on Ebay are sometimes hard to comprehend. A region free mod is value added by a third party (OPPO can't do it in the US) and should increase the price of the player.

^ Umm, better be sure what you are buying there.
I seriously doubt you are seeing a BDP-103D model that is brand new and region free for $500.
More than likely it is an older model or used player.
The newest model, the BDP-103D can be purchased directly from Oppo for $599 plus s/h.

What would you regard as a step up? The big difference between the Oppo 103 and 103D is Darbee processing which the 103D has and the 103 does not. The Denon does not have Darbee processing so if you're trying to do a comparison of products with similar functionality then the comparison should probably be between the Denon and the 103. If what is interesting you in the 103D is Darbee processing then the Denon would be a poor option since it does not have that feature.

If you've already got the Denon and you're interested in Darbee processing, then your choice is between sticking with the Denon and adding a Darblet, or swapping to either the 103D or 105D. There's a price difference between those 2 options that you really need to consider.

Apart from that, the Oppos have 2 HDMI inputs that the Denon lacks so you can use the Oppos to perform video processing for other devices with HDMI output such as a PVR or cable box if you wish.

Bottom line: the 103D has video processing functionality (Darbee, 2 HDMI inputs) that the Denon does not. If you want/need that functionality then the Oppo is most definitely a step up. If you don't need that functionality then the 103 may be a more appropriate option but either way, 103 or 103D, it will depend on whether you think the Oppo offers a big enough increase in picture quality over the Denon and that is going to be up to your own personal judgement.

Unfortunately, you've not given us any detailed information to work with. In order to help you further, please run one or more of your 'problem' files through an application called MediaInfo (set to text mode). And post what it reports, IN FULL as a text (.txt) file?

Perhaps the codecs inside the container are not supported by the player in the case of the problem files. Or maybe the dimensions of the image are too large?

There is a free utility called "mediainfo". Run it on both "good" and "bad" files and compare to see if there is a difference.

Flicker when using 103D

Looking for a little help with my Oppo 103D.

I have a Marantz SR7007 and Sony 40ES projector being fed by the 103D and have noticed in many movies there is a "flicker" to the picture in lighter scenes (I believe the flicker is there in darker scenes, but with less light it is less noticeable).

I don't have the same flicker when watching TV or playing Xbox One... it only happens when watching movies from the 103D.

Question is, given all the different settings in the 103D; is there something in there that may be causing this flicker? Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

Only thing I can think of is that I like a lot of older movies and even though I've bought the "Blu Ray" versions they still may have lower frame rates from the old filming that is showing through (but I'm hoping it's a setting in the player that I can correct).

So 600.00 for a Blu-Ray player?

I do not mind the money part but I just am amazed it can really make that much difference.

Please help convince me, I would like to add this to my new Samsung 8500 64" Plasma.

Diagnostics:

Does this happen using both the HDMI1 and HDMI2 outputs?

Does it happen if you bypass the receiver and connect directly to the display?

Does it happen at all output resolutions from the player?

If you are using 1080p, does it happen when you switch 1080p24 on and off?

Please help convince me, I would like to add this to my new Samsung 8500 64" Plasma.
What are your needs? Do you have a Blu-ray player now, and are you not happy with it?

Do you have an audio setup? Do you play media files or need any sort of network access?

Would you consider yourself a videophile, in the sense you do a lot a tweaking and calibrating?

I don't have the same flicker when watching TV or playing Xbox One... it only happens when watching movies from the 103D.

Question is, given all the different settings in the 103D; is there something in there that may be causing this flicker? Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

Only thing I can think of is that I like a lot of older movies and even though I've bought the "Blu Ray" versions they still may have lower frame rates from the old filming that is showing through (but I'm hoping it's a setting in the player that I can correct).
Aside from what Bill mentioned, I'll wager this is an issue with 24fps processing in your display. Set the player to output 60p and see if it goes away. If so, bring it up in the forum for that display and see if you can find out what setting in the display is causing it. Its not an unheard of issue with 24p processing in displays.

Well yeah I am pretty anal about my equipment, but the truth is when I buy Blu-Rays most of the time I rip them and use a mdeia server to play them. So what would it do for me this way?

I just dropped more than $665 (tax & shipping) for the 103D directly from Oppo. I am willing to pay for something that is:
1. of quality build
2. premium components fitted
3. aesthetics and design
4. features and specifications (and the Oppo passes with flying colors!)
5. Something that would hold their value for resale

I can't think of any other make/model that comes close. This is not the most expensive player on the market. So yeah, I think it is worth the $600 premium.

^All video passed through the player is subject to post processing if the user wishes to apply it, including Darbee enhancements.

If you are not playing Blu-ray discs then a Blu-ray player does not seem that attractive to me. You can use whatever media player or HTPC you want and add a Darblet if you want that effect. The OPPO is a good package incorporating a lot of features but we would still know what you need in order to advise you.
