Official OPPO BDP-83 Owner's Thread [technical talk only]

Do you know what you're erasing or not? If not maybe you should leave it alone. It sounds like you're erasing it just because you can.

Welcome to the party :kiss:

I read somewhere in this thread that YCbCr 4:4:4 was recommended for our Sony projector so I had set my Radiance to that format about a year ago and forgot about it. I...

I would assume that the first time Jim answered was in regards to the OFF setting you had cited and he said it was correct. By the way, OFF means standard 24-bit (no Deep Color) which is perfect for...

I've never compared that aspect of them. I just default to playing DVDs on the Oppo because it supports direct 480i output and I have an external video processor that does all the work. People that...

Tosh HD-XA2 1080p HD DVD - First End User Reports!: USERS ONLY PLEASE!

Why not get an A35?

I wonder if the Russian XA2 will need a North American firmware change?

Official OPPO BDP-83 Owner's Thread [technical talk only]

A lot of the UK movies are region locked on BD (eg: Paddington) so be careful and look them up on blu-ray.com or other sites before buying. For music / concerts I think you will be safe.

Official 2012 Sony BDP-S790 Thread

Depends on the model of Oppo. The BDP-83 and 103D (with Darbeevision OFF) put out reference unmolested video, just like every Sony or Panasonic in the last few years. The models in between (93-103)...

Official 2012 Sony BDP-S790 Thread

I have both too and the Sony puts out a picture just as good if not better than my Oppo but I don't expect it to last nearly as long. The build quality is no comparison. It is fast but noisy. Sony's...

Anthem D2/D2v/AVM50/AVM50v/ARC1 tweaking guide

Yep. The DAC chipset does the upsampling in the D2v so it really is done last and out of Anthem's hands.

Analog-DSP would go:
ADC (96k) -> DSP/ARC (96k) -> DAC (192k).

Don't forget the...

Better software more like it. You should be able to burn a CD from the ISO. Sorry I don't use a MAC so I can't be more helpful.

Be careful what you wish for. While the newer versions of the W5 sound more resolving and have slightly better specs I think some would say they lost some of the original's charm. If you are happy...

Isn't that XLO Sig worth more than the amp? To me it is not logical. I built my own cables from Belden 14/3 and never looked back.

There is also a DYNAMICS button on the remote you might try instead of DV. It was there to provide "midnight modes" long before DV was implemented.

You only need the most basic one. I am running a Radiance mini-3D which were recently discontinued, but CurtPalme is selling "open box" units for a good price.
