You are talking about the slope of the Crossover, right? 12dB per octave is perfectly normal. You definitely do *NOT* want a brick wall filter -- i.e., a much higher slope -- as that leads to...

The 80 does not restrict your rolling back to the prior firmware if you think it is the firmware.

The other thing you can try is reinstalling the new firmware followed by a reset of the player. ...

Nope. The 103 will play SACD discs as HDMI LPCM 5.1 (or 2.0 according to the track you select) 88.2KHz 20-bit into the D2.
