I'm still trying to settle in my own mind the true value of the extra types of Digital audio Inputs if you are only using HDMI audio output. I.e., since you are using HDMI output, you must have a digital audio capable sound processor handling that, and that likely has its own S/PDIF Inputs, right? That just leaves the path from the Asynchronous USB DAC Input to the OPPO's HDMI LPCM output as something worth exploring.

Of course you've also got the Headphone jack on the 105, but that's Analog again.

That and ethernet.  I use the latter for streaming from my remote computer files.

Thanks for the quick response's. assuming I want to make the best of my listening, is the DAC better via the 95/105 vs the squeezebox touch? I realize if if decide to hook it into the AVR via HDMI the picture quality will be the same?
post #2794 of 2827
^ I don't really know enough about the Squeezebox to answer that, but I'd be amazed if it has as good quality Analog audio output as either the 95 or 105.

Again, understand that the DACs in the OPPO are only used for *ANALOG* audio output. If using HDMI audio output, the DACs are not in the signal path.

The only info i was able to find on the Squeezebox DAC is AKM4420, 44.1k, 48k & 96k.

I am about to ask a serous question about the BDP-105 so please do not flame me. I am really considering the purchase of the unit this weekend and want to know if I will hear much more detail when playing my DVD-A than say my PS-3? Am I paying more to have the features and the benefits or is there a sonic difference you can hear? Be gentle. redface.gif

I am really excited to try out the headphone amp option too and have not been able to find much info on it vs a standard headphone amp when running my Audeze LCD-3.

You haven't really given us enough information to work with. If you're using HDMI (or other digital outputs) for audio, then I wouldn't expect to hear much, if any, difference. If you're using analog, then you may hear a somewhat significant difference if the rest of your system (preamp, amp, speakers) is good enough.

I didn't think the PS3 played DVD-A??? SACDs, yes, but DVD-A?

It looks like the answer is no (it can only play the DVD Video compatible audio tracks from a DVD-A disc), but I figured he was looking for an answer to the more general question of "will the 105 sound better than the PS3" and I believe my answer should have given him a good starting point to work from.

Agreed.  But if he is asking the specific question about DVD-A, then the answer is different.  Playing the HD DVD-A tracks will sound better than the DVD-V-compatible ones.

post #2801 of 2827
No Sony player will play the high bit rate audio from DVD-A discs. Sony pushes SACD and considers DVD-A a competing format.

I play all of my DVD-A music on my PS3 and it shows Multi channel in on my Denon 4308. LINK to my favorite DVD-A. I have this connected via HDMI and it sounds amazing. I have acquired quite the collection and if there was a product like the BDP-105 that would make it even better than I want to order one.

That's certainly true, assuming the rest of his system is resolving enough smile.gif.

Then you have been listening to the lossy tracks and not the high resolution tracks. The Oppo 103 and 105 will play the high resolution tracks. If you are using HDMI no reason to go with the 105.

Thank you guys.
post #2806 of 2827
I'm in high anticipation as I expect my BDP-103 to arrive tomorrow. Does anyone have any thoughts on a good companion AVR for the 103? I'm quite intrigued by the Pioneer Elite SC-65, but I really don't expect to have any need or use for another Marvell QDEO video processor.

The X4000 is a nice little AVR.

They were noted in his signature. Acoustats, an electrostatic speaker from the 1980s.

Now that the 105 has been around for some time, can anyone give any info on the cinavia protection implementation? For those that use it a lot for streamning (mkv, iso etc..) did you ever have cinavia interfere with the playback?

So far, Cinavia is detected only in BDMV structures, which means on burned optical discs or on AVCHD copies that have been specially treated to be playable.

It is not detected in MKV or M2TS. This can always change, of course.

The player doesn't support ISO files.

post #2813 of 2827
Yes, you are correct in that it does not support ISO files. There is a workaround though. I mount my ISO files with Slysoft's virtual clone drive (or similar tool). I have that virtual CD drive shared out with a share name of AVCHD. I can then play that ISO file from my 105.

Snookboy, some clarification.

Are you playing the ISO from your computer to one of the 103's inputs, or are you somehow getting the Oppo to read the virtual drive via a network setup, and if so, is this via some sort of server setup, or simply connecting to your pc and its virtual drive via the network choice on the Oppo's home menu?

Really enjoy my 105 after listening for two months, and glad to hear from other Oppo owners.

I'm connecting 105 to a power amp (Rotel) via XLR cable. Do I need a pre-amp? I was told Oppo's output is noisy and has high impedance, may not be a good source to hook up to power amp directly. Is that true?

Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
