That wouldn't necessarily follow. The 105 has that capability, but the 103 doesn't. If someone wants to expand the 103 without moving to the 105, you have a solution... If you just want the headphone amp and headphones without the video processing / speaker connectivity, you have that.

I just look at it as Oppo expanding their product lines. My hope is that they keep expansion tightly focused to produce evolutionary products like these. I think it's good.

The PM-1 headphone has drawn my attention back to Oppo again. The headphone market is extremely competitive, fragmented and with lots of choice to suite personal tastes. It would be difficult to have a "one size" that fits all user profiles like a universal player or smartphone (cough-cough Apple). I would think this is just a start for Oppo into the headphone market.

Wonder how well the PM-1 works off the headphone amp of the BDP-105?

Very well. They are a very low impedance headphone so you can drive them on any device, including your smartphone if you so chose to.

Talk about the tail wagging the dog.

My music player can handle FLACs (have tested it out), so that would be a really interesting combination to check out.

Now I'm REALLY interested in the price.

I'm probably about to order the Sony 4K XBR-65X850A and suddenly better 4K upscaling is an extremely important feature in my next BR player. The 1080p upscaling on the Oppo is very good IMHO but from what I hear the upscaling built into the Sony TV is better for 4K. I'd like my next BR player to WOW me with the 4K upscaling.

Their next player they design and manufacture they should put 100% effort on upscaling 1920x1080 to 4K because if they do and leave the other behind in this it will make Oppo a super outstanding blu-ray player to have.
Another point is considering millions have blu-ray disc today and I cannot see 4K blu-ray disc coming out for a long time the above option will be ever sweeter if ever achieved.
The thing that scares me is whenever 4K blu-rays come out they will take a while to saturate the market and the thought of the initial price of these 4K disc might scare a few thus good 4K upscaling must be a MUST.
And as for the Darbee Edition I love my 103D and considering nothing is perfect today there is always ways of improving the Darbee effect and other.

I think if Oppo can make the best 4K upscaler, people will feel a need to replace their current BR players if they own a 4K TV. I'm about to pull the trigger on one and look forward to better upscaling.
post #669 of 905
Just to state the obvious, you folks do realize the current 103/105/103D players include upscaling to 4Kx2K output, right?

You are correct, it does. However I've never seen a 1080p upscaler in a TV that is better than the Oppo, however the 4K upscalers in the TVs seem to be better than Oppo's 4K upscaler. That might be because their newer or some other reason. Basically I'm saying I want the 4K upscaler in the next oppo to be all that and a bag o' chips.
post #671 of 905
I don't have a 4K capable display myself, but I have been following reports suggesting the opposite. So I have to wonder if there's not some other setup issue affecting this, such as non-optimal choice of Color Space -- or video settings in the Display which don't function if the input is ALREADY 4K. Or if it's just subjective.

Will Oppo Digital Make a "Smart " BD Player ?

Hi Guy`s ,

Do you think Oppo will make a "Smart" BD player or at least add "Amazon Instant Video" app ?

I would really like to buy quality , and after years of reading about Oppo , I would like it to be my next dvd player , however now that I have discovered Amazon Instant Video , it is kind of a deal breaker.

Here is why :

I have a Samsung F8000 , and that is where I first found the joy off streaming , Amazon is real good , not prefect but good.

I would have to say VUDU , is the best ( I know Oppo has VUDU ) , but for 80 bucks a year for Amazon Prime you really can`t go wrong.

My F8000 has already failed once ( main board ) and if it fail again , it dumpster time !!

I know there are other tv`s that have the Amazon app , but I am looking for back , should I not find a tv with the Amazon app.

OK__ so know you know half my life story , Happy Holidays and thanks for any responses !! biggrin.gif

Later smile.gif

I'm sure they would if they could, but that would require interest from Amazon that hasn't happened yet.

The current players support the Roku Streaming Stick, which includes Amazon. You can get the stick at a discount from OPPO.

You can get Amazon streaming on the 103/105/103D via the ROKU Streaming Stick. See the discounted price for that on the OPPO Digital web site. (Bill types fast!)

I'm reading from people who have the Sony projectors and TVs that the sony upscaling is better for 4K. I'll have my TV shortly and I'll give my opinion as these things can be somewhat subjective. I tried streaming 4K to my existing TV - (downscaled as my current tv is 1080p) wired to a gigabit switch it stuttered like it didn't have enough bandwidth (e.g. using the oppo wireless connection) although it could be the conversion process. I'll see how well 4K streams to a 4K TV in a few days so there won't be any conversion.

Thanks guy`s for the info on the ROKO stick.

Is there a reason behind Oppo not wanting to have an Amazon app ?

Take care smile.gif

post #677 of 905
^ Wrong question. Correct question: Is there a reason why Amazon isn't allowing OPPO to add an Amazon app?
--Bob
post #678 of 905
Maybe Oppo doesn't want to pay the licensing?
post #679 of 905
^ Much more likely Amazon doesn't want to bother with lower volume brands.

And there is evidence that strongly supports this ... just go look at the list of TVs, Bluray Players, and Streaming products that Amazon does support.

I'll help - here it is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/devices

Looks huge, right?
Then collapse to just the manufacturer/brand. See what happens to the list. Apparently, if you are not the size/weight of LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Vizio, Tivo, Roku, Netgear, Logitech, Google, or Asus - then you just are not worth their time.

Only two things currently missing for me is Dolby Pro Logic, and Dolby Pro Logic 2X. Auro 3D, and or Atmos when available.

OK - I had a chance to compare the integrated 4K on the XBR-65X850A (I've only had it a couple of days now) but here is my opinion

The Sony 4K upscaler seems to do a slightly better job- the picture seems crisper and cleaner.
The Oppo 4K upsaler is close but seems a little grainy or less detailed. Hard to describe like it is just a slightly lower resolution.
Both upscalers tend to have an issue when there is a lot of action sometime the area in motion can seem a little soft but then gets sharp.

This is not a knock on the 103; the Sony upscaler may be optimized for its own particular display. I don't know much about upscaling technical details so this is just a stab in the dark on why it is better in the native Sony upscaling built into the TV.

This may sound strange but it would be nice if the Oppo has a few extra RJ45 out connections so that I can run one Ethernet to my Oppo and instead of having to put in a switch, my BR player could then connect data out to my TV, 4K media server and console.

HDMI v1.4 was supposed to have offered us ethernet connectivity via HDMI... All we need are supporting products?

I would like to see an Oppo BD/DVD-A/SACD/CD player only.

No Pandora, no streaming, no server capabilities, just a disc player, with as high a quality as they can achieve, and built-in high quality DACS for disc content.

That way I could be sure the money was going to features I care about and not to features I will never use (like Netflix, Hulu, etc. - I bought a BD player to play BDs, not to watch inferior quality "HD" streamed video.)

Perhaps a BD-111 to go with the 113 and 115 at about half the MSRP of the 115.

I would be happy if there was an option via 'Device Setup' or 'Network Setup' that would allow us to remove all the streaming applications from main/home GUI....

Their players that are priced higher are priced accordingly for better hardware performance.
Like with the current BDP-105... the stereo analog audio and a few other things are better quality than in the BDP-103.

However they develop software features that are used for one player, like internet apps and network features, then those are easily ported over to any other players they sell as long as the hardware supports it. You can't make the -103 sound better with -105 features because the hardware does not support it, but the apps and network features can be easily added to the -105 via firmware revisions without adding real cost to the price of the -105, because they are already developed for the -103.

They could sell a player without those added features, but it doesn't make the player cost any less to make, so there is no savings to pass on to the customer who buys it.
post #689 of 905
Again, I would like more music server functionality like a joint venture with J River. To me that is the only weak point of the 105.
post #690 of 905
^^^^^Optimized JRiver Media Center support, be able to use Jriver to OPPO BDP-115 as a Native Multi-channel/stereo DSD DAC. Include Darbee. Also include an HDMI out fro whole house audio video distribution that can work simultaneously with analog output yet be turned off for critical listening.
