Can you clarify what you mean by "analog"? What that means to me is that HDMI is not an option for you. So you would need a streaming device with component or composite outputs, which would mean a very old streaming BD player or a newer standalone streaming device with analog like the Roku Express+ (lower Express model does not have analog). Not sure how you were ever able to connect the Oppo 105 to an analog system.

Coax and optical are digital, not analog, if that's what you're referring to. Samsung, LG and Panasonic players, to name a few, still have optical ports.

Also please tell us what an A10 is.

Thanks .. I picked up an Oppo 103. I use this as a digital frond end. I run my cable box into it and stream thru its apps using the Optical out into a Aurender A10 music player/server/dac .The analog outs from the A10 go to my tube preamp. I was just trying to avoid numerous Ethernet switches and add on boxes. Works like a champ. Thanks for eveyones input!!

I bought the Seiki SR4KP1 and it was delivered from Amazon yesterday. We set it up last night and it seems to work 100% Groovy!

It played my Australian "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars" BR and it's Bonus Features just fine.

It also played my German PAL Northern Exposure DVD perfectly! In fact, I think it played it better than my now-extinct Oppo DV-981HD. I couldn't compare it to the Oppo but I think the Seiki's Upscaling looks a LOT better!

There is a Programmer Code that let's you into the Region and PAL settings and you can set it up to play PAL AND American DVDs. It seems you only have to change that setting once and from then on it'll play both PAL and American DVDs forever and a day. (I've already been beach-slapped in here for doing something against the rules, so I'm not sure I can post the code here - but it's easy to find, and if I find out it's ok, Ill post it).

The BR Region setting looks like you'll have to reset it whenever you play a "Different" BR Region than the one it's set to. So it's not automatic, but it's pretty easy to do and only takes a few seconds.

It's amazingly LIGHT WEIGHT and I really like the Displays for Time, Chapters, et al.


EDIT: October 13, 2017:
One correction: The Remote is serious crap. Flimsy and Badly Designed: To Rewind and then Play is basically an annoyingly Two-Handed Operation.

EDIT: October 16, 2017:
I just found out that the Seiki plays Data from a Burned Disc. It has no USB port (except one on the back for Technician Support, I think) but it will play mp4s from a DVD-ROM (UDF) burned DVD.

Need suggestions on budget Bluray player for home theater room

So last week my aging Sony (I think) BDP 5000 took out on me. Now I am going to have to buy a new Bluray player, and was hoping that you guys could direct me to a good unit that fits my needs.

I watch only Blurays and DVD, no UHD or Ultra High Def as my projector is not new enough to support those. I just want to get the nice audio and video quality that standard Bluray offers. I have a Denon AVR-3310 receiver that will be bit streaming the signal. I want the DD TrueHD and DTSMA signal to be processed in my Denon. I have zero usage for streaming or any apps, I just want to be able to pop in a Bluray or DVD disk, then sit down to enjoy. Again, I do not need streaming, netflix or any apps.

My budget is under $150-$200. Would love to have a new top of the line Oppo, but right now I can't afford it. I am open to buying used if that will get me more bang for my buck. Suggestions?

I'd stick with Sony or Panasonic. Choose the best model for you based on the specific features you want (they pretty much all do streaming nowadays). Personally I'd stick with the current models rather than used since the manufacturers commonly stop supporting older models with firmware updates (which are sometimes needed for new movie releases), and current Sonys and Pannys will easily fit within your budget.

My current plan is to buy a new OLED set in the next year or two. I have a dying Panasonic DMP-BD85 and need something cheap to get me by until then.

I have no need for network features - I have a Roku Express (waiting for a decent implementation on DV/HDR10/HDR10+/Atmos in one box). I am looking at three refurb options at Best Buy:

BDP-S1700 - $35.00
BDP-S3700 - $50.00
BDP-S6700 - $55.00

For vanilla Blu-ray discs will there be a difference in performance between these models? If not I'll go with the S1700 as it's the cheapest.

PQ will look the same for BluRay discs played on any BluRay player (there may be PQ differences for upscaled DVDs).

The 6700 has a dual-core processor, so it loads discs somewhat faster than the others. It also can play SACD discs.

There are a bunch of 103's and 105's in the classifieds as people upgrade to the 203.

Please use the report post button to alert staff to problematic posts. Never quote or respond to them yourself.

Oppo UDP-203 -> Yamaha CX-A5100 -> Sony XBR-75X940C; Mediabridge 6' and 15' HDMI cables.

Sony's UHP-H1 is a non-4K universal Blu-ray player. I think it was their first to be able to play DVD-A discs. It's significantly less expensive than Oppo players usually are.
