ULTRA HD RESOLUTION AND HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE
  • 4K Ultra HD Video
  • The UDP-203 supports the playback of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs. Packing a resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, UHD Blu-ray delivers four times the pixels of Full HD Blu-ray. The UDP-203 is also capable of playing 4K media files and user generated content. Support for decoding the HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K, and Hi10P video codecs provides increased compatibility with user generated media.
  • High Dynamic Range
    The UDP-203 supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut. The enhanced resolution, refined contrast, greater brightness, and expanded color produce stunning video with unparalleled clarity and detail. In addition to supporting the HDR10 format on discs and video files, it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion of HDR to SDR for older displays, as well as conversion between various color spaces such as BT.2020, BT.709, and BT.601.
  • Dolby Vision Upgradeable
    Leveraging hardware designed to support Dolby Vision, customers can expect a firmware update in early 2017 that brings Dolby Vision support to the player. Dolby Vision transforms the TV viewing experience by delivering striking highlights, brilliant colors, and deep darks never before seen on standard television screens, and OPPO is committed to bringing this exciting technology to the UDP-203.
EXPERTISE AND QUALITY
  • Reference Quality Video
    The UDP-203 combines the latest technology with OPPO's many years of experience in delivering high quality video and audio. A customized quad-core video decoder/processor integrates OPPO's advanced video decoding, processing and optimization expertise.
  • High Precision Disc Loader
    A high-precision, well-balanced laser optical disc loader ensures smooth and reliable playback of all types of disc media. An optimized laser mechanism to ensure super fast disc loading, strong error detection and correction.
  • Exceptional Build Quality
    The UDP-203 features a brushed aluminum front panel, a rigid steel chassis and gold plated connectors. The solid build quality not only presents a sleek aesthetic, but also ensures dependable operation and reliable connection.
UNIVERSAL DISC AND FILE PLAYBACK
  • Multiple Disc Formats
    The design of the UDP-203 focuses on quality playback and universal compatibility with multiple disc and file formats. In addition to the latest UHD Blu-ray, the UDP-203 supports regular Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and audio CD.
  • Media File Playback
    The UDP-203 is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports on the back and another USB port on the front. Users can play video, music and photos from USB hard drives or thumb drives.
  • Home Network Access
    Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet connects the UDP-203 to users’ home networks, so users can easily play media files stored on computers and home servers.
HIGH RESOLUTION AUDIO
  • Lossless Audio Decoding
    The UDP-203’s video performance and universal compatibility is further complemented by its support of lossless high resolution audio. The player decodes audio file formats such as AIFF, WAV, ALAC, APE and FLAC. It also directly plays Direct-Stream Digital audio files in stereo DSD64/128 or multi-channel DSD64.
  • Advanced Audio Formats
    With internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and bitstream output for object-based immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the UDP-203 delivers great sound for both movie soundtracks and music.
  • High Performance DAC
    The UDP-203 offers 7.1-channel audio outputs for connecting to a 7.1-channel or 5.1-channel surround sound system. The 7.1-ch outputs feature "Velvet Sound" 32-bit premium digital-to-analog converters from AKM of Japan, delivering an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience.
VERSATILE CONNECTIVITY
  • Dual HDMI Outputs
    The player features two HDMI outputs – an HDMI 2.0 port for connecting to the latest UHD TVs, projectors and A/V receivers, and an HDMI 1.4 audio port for connecting to older A/V receivers. Customers with newer 4K- and HDR-capable A/V receivers can use a full HDMI 2.0 signal path, while customers with older A/V receivers can have a split A/V setup.
  • HDMI 2.0 Input
    An HDMI 2.0 input port that supports UHD resolution is available for users to connect an external streaming device. This approach affords users the flexibility to choose from a wide range of streaming devices and easily upgrade as streaming technologies evolve, while still taking advantage of the UDP-203's audio and video processing capabilities.
  • Easy Integration
    Integration-friendly features such as RS-232 control, back panel IR sensor and third-party IP control make the UDP-203 a great choice for any home theater system. Coaxial and optical digital audio outputs provides backward compatibility with legacy audio components.

+1

Owners/Beta Testers: is the UI and menu system for accessing local network media files similar to the 103 or has it been improved with automatic data scraping like other current media players for UI artwork and information? (I'm looking at the 203 manual and it's pretty vague on that score.)

And if not, this will become item #1 on my wishlist for future updates.

MKV files with Atmos and DTS:X supported ?

Hello, could any of the beta testers confirm if MKV files with Atmos and DTS:X work fine ?

Also, do you know if the SuperDisc DVD region mod also works with this player ?

Thank you !

Enjoy.

Atmos support in MKV: No (forced decoding of DTHD). DTS-X: yes. Please note that these are moving targets, as the BDA is really out to get MKV files now.
Superdisc: yes.

Please note that complete lists of file type support will be available soon. In the mean time just assume that very little has changed since the BDP-103.

And heading off another question: Gapless is working for .wav only at this time. FLAC gapless has a little tiny gap.

And if not, this will become item #1 on my wishlist for future updates.
Both of those features are improved upon. Personally I haven't had as much time as I would like to have had testing music file playback,
but I know they are using a newer system for retrieving artwork and such, and it works better than Gracenote that is used in the 10x players.

Can you output bitstream via HDMI and PCM via Toslink/PCM at the same time like the older players (93 and 103)?

Just read the manual, looks like this is the case.

I love that the user manual says it supports SMB and NFS as well as DLNA. I never understood all the "smart" devices that would allow you to stream media from a USB stick, but didn't go the extra mile and allow you to stream the same media from a network file system. The only thing they seem to have neglected is HTTP streaming (at least I didn't notice that mentioned).

I am not an MKV afficionato, but I think the Superdisc still works.
For release in the USA, Blu-ray will be locked to Region A and by default UHD BD is region free.
I'm pretty sure no one knows anything about region free mod kits for BD yet.

Thanks for the info. I am behind since I do not own a BDP-103 as I will be upgrading from the BDP-93.

According to the user manual, If watching an UHD blu ray and you turn HDR off, it will convert everything to SDR. I was hoping that one could still send WCG to tv from the 4K disc.

No streaming apps (yet?). Only Oppo knows about any timeframe on that.
Beta Testers will be restricted to talking about features of the player that are current and already in the software
that is on the player when released soon.

You can. There will be an experimental "Strip Metadata" feature that will send WCG/SDR.

That's what Oppo referred to it as. It works great for me on store bought UHD BDs to my Denon AVR and
Epson projection system, but perhaps it may not work perfectly with all setups (?).
I can only report what I have experienced, and it works good for me.

I think it's pretty clear from their press release that there will be no built-in streaming apps. Ever. If you want streaming you'll have to do it through an external device.

"In order to provide a premium user experience with quick start-up times and fast response, the UDP-203 is designed with a purist approach in mind for disc and file playback, and so it does not carry internet video and music streaming apps. Instead, an HDMI 2.0 input port that supports UHD resolution is available for users to connect an external streaming device. This approach affords users the flexibility to choose from a wide range of streaming devices and easily upgrade as streaming technologies evolve, while still taking advantage of the UDP-203’s audio and video processing capabilities."

You may be right. I only know what I have been privy to from Oppo, and they haven't talked about streaming apps.
Only that they are not included on release.

The HDMI input of the UDP-203 does accept 4K resolution on release, but not HDR.
Oppo has said they hope to have HDR compatibility on the HDMI input in a future update.
To confirm, when I try pushing my Roku Premier+ through the -203, I do get 4K but not HDR.

That last bit is the only disappointing thing for me. I really wanted to send my Shield TV through the Oppo.
I agree with their approach of letting dedicated streaming devices do that work wholeheartedly, but then that HDMI needs to be fully UHD ready, including HDR.

That said, I still can't wait for it to show up and start enjoying UHD movies.

Also really looking forward to comprehensive reviews from beta Testers.

So no Netflix built in. Can you then hook up an Apple TV through the UDP-203.
