Value is in the eye of the beholder, of course. But if you are curious about the Oppo, google for "Oppo BDP 105 reviews", read up on the specs and read what other people say. And of course, skim through that Official Oppo thread I linked to in my first post, read what Oppo owners say.

But be warned - it is a very well respected piece of gear - if you read too much, you might be motivated to go out and rob a bank in order to own one!

I own the earlier model - the Oppo 95: no headphone jack. Bought it only a few months before the 105 came out. Grrrr. Would have waited had I known.

But yeah, as you guessed, that's way beyond me right now. Thanks anyway.

But seriously now, one of the only ways to get a headphone jack is to shell out more than 1K.

While I have no plans to get anything like that, I'm curious. What makes that thing worth so much? Maybe when I'm making six figures (sarcasm) I'll get that.
See my post a few above... Apparently Oppos really are the only players that actually work in all sorts of wacky configurations... And by reputation they do it well, although I don't have first hand experience. I guess I'll have to start saving for one... Hopefully I get there before yet another format change

If your player has stereo ouputs, then there is a simple Y-cable, RCA-to-headphone, that will work. You ought to have a headphone amp, but it works without. Audio is not that important to me, but I've tried it and caveman techniques work for me.

OPPO also has a headphone amp.

Thing is, I've been surprised how many Bluray players on Amazon have nothing but optical, coax, and HDMI out. Can anyone link me to a recent player with stereo RCA out?

What do you mean I ought to have a headphone amp? I know that would sound better, but foor what it's worth, my Sennheiser 598s sound great on my laptop's plain old 3.5 mm jack.

I was channeling audiophile headphone users. They'll tell you.

Which players can stream Plex in DD True HD? Which ones can also pass Atmos via Plex?

I would use an Ethernet connection.

I think the Oppo 103 can. Watch about Denon dbt3313 or Marantz ud5007? I don't mind buying used.

So I have a dinky like 70 dollar sony player and I've been considering going for something nicer, I will not be upgrading to 4k any time soon, not enough interest. I keep seeing everyone recommend oppo, is there a particular reason or model? I don't have any strange connection needs, its all HDMI, is there any reason to upgrade?

Probably not. HDMI audio and video are the same unless you get a Darbee version, which does some magic to make the video look somewhat better to some people.

However, the Oppos are "universal" players: they can play SACD, DVD-A and HDCD(*) audio discs in addition to Blu-ray, DVD and CD formats. The Oppo players' HDMI inputs and analog outputs tempt many people, as well as their more rugged design. Sony's BDP-S6500 can play SACD but not DVD-A discs. An additional feature is that the Oppos include multichannel decoders for translating DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD into PCM. Sony only provides stereo decoders in their current players. Most people bitstream the audio from their BDs, so this might not matter to you.

----
* -- HDCDs can be played on any CD player, but having a HDCD decoder provides somewhat better audio. Just about everybody else has dropped that feature in their players. I'm guessing Microsoft wants an outrageous licensing fee.
