What features would you like in your next Oppo BR - e.g. Oppo BDP-113 and BDP-115. - Page 24

post #691 of 906
Ok here is what I want

HARWARE:

- All aluminum no more plastic please especially for the drawer.
- HDMi 2.0
- USB 3.0
- Thunderbolt
- upgraded DACS
- 9. 2 channels with XLR connections

SOFTWARE:

- DIRAC calibration software or Lyngdorf Room Perfect
- better GUI

^ All of that would come with a retail price that would scare too many people away, especially the aluminum drawer as that's a big part of the reason why the flagship Denon players are so expensive.

And in case you don't realize it, the drawer is only used to move the disc in and out of the drive. During playback, the drawer is not in contact with the disc.

$1100 is not cheap!

post #695 of 906
Considering what you get for that price, it isn't too bad. Almost all other players with anything like the same features, build quality and component quality are much more expensive.

I don't consider 1100 cheap either, but comparatively speaking, when you see how much other similar products cost that have less features than the Oppo, you are getting a very good deal/product for the price paid.

Ya but what good is it if you can't do pullups on it??
It is a universal player after all. It could also serve as a workout machine.

Compared to $4500, it is.

Agreed!
post #701 of 906
Making it play DVD-Audio discs without truncating the songs!
post #702 of 906
Ask OPPO and they may be able to send you a test firmware to fix your issues.
post #703 of 906

Add a firewire conection for audio listening.

post #704 of 906
I would like the next Oppo to be able to act as a display manager/video processor (i.e using the AVR as a switch). To do that 1) ARC should work so that the Oppo can look like Display to the AVR and send its audio back to the AVR for processing
2) Have a pass-through mode so that when it is off, HDMI input will go out to the main HDMI output.
3) When HDMI input is not selected, have it be electrically isolated to avoid HDMI loops.

Can't recall if it's been mentioned before, but it would be nice that Oppo consider making their new revision of the universal players more like a pre-pro device. The thinking is that power amps can be left out of and have minimal interference to the low voltage circuits of the new Oppo. 12V trigger feature would need to be implemented.

Have sufficient digital / analogue connections and allowing the Oppo to be the central hub for devices such as set top boxes, DVR, HTPCs, console games, etc. I would go with HDMI 1.4 with 6 in with 2 out on the higher end model with 4 in and 2 out on the lower end.

The bigger sized higher end model has to keep the die hard audiophiles happy. Incorporate dedicated 2-channel circuits with XLR out on stereo.

Ethernet IP controls with an intuitive user interface that'll allow everyone in the family to enjoy playing/using all their devices connected to the Oppo as a whole rather than the current piece meal approach. Something like a built in Plex media server with DLNA. Able to stream DSD files to the Oppo.

They kind of are already there.
Just 2 hdmi inputs on the current model, and many media servers can be connected via DNLA, etc...
It certainly would be cool if they added more features that a full featured pre-pro would have.
They are already aware that many people want an official pre-pro from Oppo, but diving into the deep end of that pool is is a big ole can of worms.

honestly id like to see a low cost option; no fancy DAC or anything just a "tank" built player with 2 hdmi out/ 2 in with killer upscaling(basically take the 103D and strip out the DAC analog outs and charge $349) probably not going to happen though

Oppo isn't a big brand manufacturer. They can't really afford to make 5 different players that cater to every niche of consumers.
What they are good at though is packing as many awesome features as possible into 1 universal player for an awesome price.
Maybe not compared to a $99 BD player, but compared to other similar players that sell for twice as much.
There are more than few simple BD players out there that are very good quality, and if that is what a consumer needs at a lower price point then that is what they should get.
Don't get me wrong... I would love if Oppo did make such a player as you suggest, but I just don't think they can compete in that market against other giant manufacturers.
I think Oppo is just so d*** good at what they do, we just want all our components to be Oppo. smile.gif
post #709 of 906
What I would personally want to see implemented in their next model players is a small display screen built into the front of the player so the consumer can use the player without an external display. Music listeners would love to have that I'm sure.

I'd like to see that too.

And if there was an option to purchase a swanky 2-way (universal) remote control capable of displaying the players GUI on a small LCD display, so you don't have to turn on the TV to select music tracks, I'd go for that too!

^and with RF capability too please smile.gif

Yes, Oppo have dipped their toes into the pre-pro waters. They just need to wade in a little deeper with and offer more features - just to encourage upgradtitus itch that current owners can't seem to get rid of.tongue.gif

Agree.

Check out the display on the up coming HA-1 headphone amplifier. This would look awesome on future BDP players.biggrin.gif
post #714 of 906
Is there any expectation as to when the new models will be available? Seems like the 103/105 have lasted quite a while.

Grapevine rumors say that a BDP-105D might be coming, but would probably only incorporate the same differences with the BDP-105 that exist between the BDP-103 and BDP-103D.
I believe they also show a new 2-channel pre/amp ~ headphone amp and new headphones coming soon on their website.
As for a new media player that includes any game changes, I think they may be waiting for new 4k specs so they can make a 4k media player.
Who knows how long that could be since there isn't even any 4k media to play.
Of course this is all just best guesses based on chatter and some hints from Oppo support.
Just as well though, there isn't too much left on the wishlist for Oppo to fill right now.

That's a good point about the short wishlist. It sounds like it's pretty safe to order a 103D right now and not have a newer model come out immediately. smile.gif

I guess they have two probable courses. Release a new one in November for a two year cycle or wait for some 4K optical prevalence.
post #719 of 906
4K upconversion as good as the 83 upconverted sd dvds.I was wowed by a Samsung 4K set in Best Buy playing 4K material from a USB thunb drive.I would like Oppo to add sd upconversion to 4K so I can keep my vast library of sd concerts and be blown away by them on a 4K set.I believe if anyone can pull off this it will be OPPO.
post #720 of 906
^ Uh, the current 103/105/103D players already have 4K up-scaling -- yes, even of SD-DVD content if you wish. (For SD-DVD you need to use DVD 24p Conversion in the player to keep the output under the "4K"/30 bandwidth limit of current, HDMI V1.4 hardware.)
