Got unit January of 2010 and am original owner. Used about 1-2 times a week for movie viewing only and on rare occasions to listen to music. Sits on own shelf with plenty of clearance for ventilation (Sanus open shelves). Plugged into power conditioner (Panamax 5100) to ensure clean power. I use a Harmony remote so remotes are like new. All original packaging and accessories are included. Has latest firmware.

Other than normal dust, I see no scratches and it's actually as close to like new as a unit can be after several years of owning it. Environment is no kids, no smoking and no pets.

Spec highlights:

  • 120 Watts x 7 (8 Ohm 20-20kHz 0.09%THD)
  • DSD transmission (Super Audio CD), extended by HDMI ver1.2.
  • High Bitrate Audio (DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD), Deep Color and x.v.Color (x.v.Colour) transmission, extended by HDMI ver1.3
  • Front HDMI Input
  • 2 HDMI Outputs for BRAVIA® LCD TVs and Front PJ
  • DLNA (client) support for photos, music, and video
  • Stream music, photos and video from DLNA enabled PC
  • Access Rhapsody and SHOUTcast™ Music Services
  • “Quick Click” On Screen Remote Control
  • Ethernet Connectivity
  • Sony® DLL Audio Scaler
  • Auto A/V Sync

More detailed product information is available directly from Sony here.

IMPORTANT: Will only ship to lower 48 (continental) states via UPS Ground. Shipping is $30 added to selling price. PayPal preferred please. Add 1.5% (half of PayPal fee) to final price. Please PM me if you want to use a different payment method. Thanks.

Please don't hesitate to contact me via PM for any additional information. Thank you.

When I click the Info button, I get the following on these others:
I've got a problem I wonder if y'all could help me with. When playing Pure Audio Blu-Rays, my A/V Receiver (Sony DA5500ES) reads and plays PCM and Dolby TrueHD 24-bit/96Khz signals, no problem, from my Oppo BDP-105D. But when I play the DTS-HD Master Audio, it cuts in and out, and then gives up entirely.

There are no problems with standard Blu-Ray films that have audio in DTS-HDma, which is likely because the signal is 48Khz.


Any thoughts? When I look at what the Oppo is sending out, it says:

LPCM - Stereo 96k 24b, 23.976Hz 5.9Mbps
Dolby TrueHD 96k , 23.976Hz 4.2Mbps
DTS-HD MA 96k , 23.976Hz 4.9Mbps

The difference is, the audio cuts out and dies immediately with the DTS-HD MA.

I have the STR-DA5800ES and early on it did have issues decoding DTS-HD MA bitstream and Sony eventually fixed it with a firmware upgrade. However, I've been letting my Oppo BDP-103 do the decoding and just send the audio as LPCM to the AVR. I have no issues and no loss of sound quality doing it this way.

It sounds like you're still bitstreaming and letting the AVR do the decoding? If so, check to see if Sony has a firmware update for your model otherwise set your Oppo to do the decoding and send LPCM to your AVR.
