The 103/105 have a more capable decoder. For example, they can decode rear channel information matrixed into DD and DTS ES and EX tracks. They can also decode the rare 5.1 DTS-HD MA 192KHz Blu-ray audio format as 192KHz instead of 96KHz.
The 103/105 have improved media file support capability.
The 103/105, can be used as a Digital Media Renderer from an appropriate DLNA server. This means you can use something external to the player to browse your DLNA content and then "push" files over your house network to the 103/105 for playback.
The 103/105 have HDMI INPUTS that can be used to play audio from other HDMI Sources through to their Analog (or Digital) outputs.
The 105 has a built-in Headphone amplifier and 1/4 inch jack.
The 105 has Optical/Coax and Asynchronous USB DAC INPUTS which can be used to play other sources through the player
Compared to the 95, the 105 has a brand new design for its power supply and for both the multi-channel and dedicated stereo Analog outputs. The 105 has no fan (and needs no fan).
The 103/105 have more powerful system processors and are thus noticeably faster.
I've probably forgotten to list some stuff. Check out the Anticipation thread for all the news behind the rumors.
