I am looking at either the Marantz UD 5007 or the Oppo BDP-103. I have done a ton of research but I wanted to know if you all have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance !!!
This one's easy. The Oppo 103D (same 599 price as the Marantz).
Some of the extras you get:
-4K upscaling instead of 1080p
-2 HDMI inputs to use the Oppo's video processing for your other components. The Marantz has no inputs.
-Digital SPDIF outputs. The Marantz has no coax or fiber.
-RS232 control (for those who need it)
- Reference quality video.
- so on...
-Extra file formats supported:
- AVCHD / DivX HD / DivX6 / DivX Ultra / DivX plus HD, Network Audio: MP3 / WMA / AAC / FLAC / WA, Network Video: MPEG / DivX / H.264 / WMV, Network static video (JPEG)
(Advanced Audio Coding),AIFF
(Audio Interchange File Format),ALAC
(Advanced Systems Format),AVCHD,AVI
(Audio Video Interleave),DFF and DSF (DSD: Direct Stream Digital files),DIVX Media Format,FLAC
(Free Lossless Audio Codec),FLV
,(BDAV MPEG-2 Transport Stream),M4A (same as MP4),M4V (same as MP4),MKV
(Matroska, both .mkv and .mka),MP3
(MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3),MP4,MPG
(Multi Picture Object),OGG,OGM,
(up to 24 bit),WMA
(Windows Media Audio) (not WMA Pro, Lossless or Voice),WMV
(Windows Media Video)
Also, acting as a DLNA renderer, you get 192KHz PCM, and... well I could go on, but if you're spending that kind of money, get the Oppo.
And killer tech support.
