I bought a Laser BD 3000 recently, it's Aus$ 100, region free, allows playback of all formats via USB, speedy playback and I can't tell any difference in BR disc playback. Since then, my Oppo 203 has...

Does your AVR decode or is it being done in the Oppo. You need to go into the settings and try the variations. Good luck

Just watched Bourne.. rather bleah DTS-X title.. almost as bland as the American Ultra..
DTS has got to get some really solid titles with good soundtracks... Atmos is running circles around them..

If you are keen on real power, I would suggest something a bit more substantial mate.. a Rotel or Parasound for example. The 7055 is like a 7005 sans the processor..

Actually IMHO, the 203 remote feels just a tad better.. different supplier from the 103/105?
Just my personal opinion..

Right off, yes, but there are many confounding variables, and you have mentioned them.
For the same money, your speakers and room etc will make a bigger difference, but yes, there is a difference.

Nice, maybe that's why there's not a lot of literature on the C1 vs the C20. If they are so close in performance, Dyn wouldn't want to highlight this, not at least til production and stock of the C1...

Essentially it's the same, but an official FW is available online as well as via download. It also has to be pretty solid. Beta FW can be tricky and sometimes can make your player worse.

I wonder if it's related to the high gain on the power amp? Are you using XLR or unbalanced RCA?

YMMV, and if they work for you, it's fine.
But if one is willing to put 10k down on a nice centre, the outlay of 20 dollars for these items doesn't seem too bad, cheers.

I am keeping my old 83 Nuforce for music, and for it's region free playback, and most importantly because it actually works well. Fuss free.
