I doubt it. It was just released today.

Quick question for you 103D folks.
Does Darbee help the typically less than ideal pictures we get with cable HD?
I see the standard 103 and 105 claim image processing to improve less than perfect video input, does Darbee only make very good HD video better, while doing less for less than ideal video?
Or does Darbee improve everything?
I am of the opinion that DVP will help on all video fed through the player, but I think it helps less with lower quality / lower res stuff.
I have seen the most improvement on BD stuff. It seems that the more detail there is, the more DVP has to work with and does a better job. Not to say that it doesn't help with DVD and even when feeding something like your cable STB through the player. It helps with all content to some extent.
All of that is to be taken as opinion though, as not everyone is drinking the Darbee Koolaid.
Personally I love it on the rocks, and tastes good goin down.

Indeed! I would hopefully look to see another thread created by Neuromancer and then maybe the mods can merge them.
This way there's on main thread with updated details all incorporated in the first post of the thread.
Here's an FYI on the differences between the BDP-105 and the BDP-105D...
How is the BDP-105D different from the BDP-105?
The BDP-105D subtracts:
~the Marvell Qdeo video processor
~the Darbee Visual Presence video processor
~the Silicon Image VRS ClearView video processor
~updated USB DAC interface to support DSD64 and DSD128
~the ability to send DSD over HDMI on the HDMI-1 output
(this was only possible on the HDMI-2 output of the BDP-105)
~the remote with be a slightly new version with a Darbee button
(otherwise the remote is identical to the BDP-105/103)
All other aspects and functions of the two models are identical.
