This is pretty strange, but after removing the Darbee DVP5000 (Darblet) from of my Blu Ray chain, I don't miss it at all. Now it simply resides at the Integra's HDMI output to the Lumagen (with the Oppo BDP-95 having its own direct path to the Lumagen.) All in all, I think the Darbee is 100% effective only about 60% of the time for blu rays in my system. Mileage varies from user to user though. I still love it for gaming, as it works miracles and breaths new life into the games I own on "Game" mode at the 85% setting.

There is a huge buzz about these new Oppo's as it looks like they may be raising the bar higher.

Absolutely! What's so exciting (for me) is the ability to use either new model as a USB DAC. I have a monster PC connected to the theater, and I can now run the files on this computer through the Oppo, sans flash drive, with pristine quality. I'm sure the MHL HDMI input on the front will come in useful at some point in the future, but right now, it's that DAC capability.

Nope, they're about $100 more than the BDP-95 when it was released. Selling the 93 is just to put a dent in the overall price of the 105 (Since making recent theater changes downstairs, I rarely use the 93 that's upstairs) The plan is to put my current 95 up in the media room for future analog endeavors, and put the 105 in the theater rack (I'm eventually going to get a high-end analog pre-amp w/ theater bypass). I'm just planning for the future, as this is the last blu ray player I"m getting until 4k reaches a level of ubiquity.

The oppo Blu ray are the better players in my rack. If I had to get rid of the two Blu rays for me it will be the Sony 380 and denon 2010.

Frank, most people have Blu ray collections. You, however, have a Blu ray PLAYER collection! Lol. That's a lot of players man....Oppo has been consistently delivering great HD performance since the days of the BDP-83!

Just wanted to share: This is one of my old cats, Dawn, the day that I set up my first ever projector. She couldn't understand why the bird was so big. She kept leaving, hiding, and then running back to the screen trying to scare it. (I had the image paused, of course--amusement for us both). HA! Good times.

That's cool. It's good to see the reaction out of our pets. My puppy has noticed his reflection and keeps barking at himself smile.gif

Guys, I am officially "cutting the cord".". I've just discovered Hulu Plus, which--combined with Netflix,--can provide all the casual viewing offerings I could want. I haven't made the call yet, since I'm trying to figure out how to get HBO Go ( primarily for Game of Thrones) without a dedicated subscription, but once I figure that out, the cut will be official. I DVR everything, including sports, which--as I get older--don't mean as much to me as they used to.

I miss cable for ESPN and a few others but eh it's been two years now and I've learned to live without it. It's not that big a deal really. Of course I'm not married but my son likes Netflix just fine. I figure if I had a spouse I'd probably end up going back to uverse because women it seems can't live without cable tv service.

Missing MNF would be a little rough. Besides that, most of the stuff is crap. I sometimes can't believe I pay $100 a month for Directv just to watch like 3 channels. LOL

Matt,

I Went to a JBL Synthesis demo last weekend, they had a stewart screen, a huge DLP porjector , 2 JBL Everest on the front and 4 smaller jbl's which I can't remember the reference but what "literally" hit me was the 4 18" subs, one in each corner, the movie they were showing was Open Range, and man, you could really feel those gunshots!! I said to myself: That's what Matt will be feeling if he get the 4 submersives in his HT room, Damn, I'm jealous!! biggrin.gif

Ahhhh, you have undertaken the plight that shall soon be mine! Yeah, my lady loves game shows and things of that ilk, but she doesn't live here--so I can enjoy all the non-subscription television I can handle!

Same thing I'm saying to myself! I pay about 130 a month, and I watch 3 or 4 channels tops! It's time for a change!!

Al, I'm jealous that you were able to go to a JBL Synthesis demo!!! lol.....man...that must have been an experience!!! I thought Open Range was an animated movie. It has funshots? Perhaps I'm thinking of another movie...Open Season perhaps? Man, I toy with the idea of pursuing the extra 2 Submersives F2 HP's before pursuing the Catalysts, but I go back and forth between the "before catalysts" and "after catalysts" stages. I can't make up my mind!! I wish I could have heard that 4-Sub setup! Man, I wish I could hear any powerful 4-sub setup.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Oppo BDP-103 has been shipped! :-) I'm counting down the days until it's arrival, as I have no blu ray player (recently sold both my BDP 93 and 95 models) I can't wait to test out its functionality as a USB DAC.

And having seen this impressive BDP collection, I don't feel strange for having two.
