post #11221 of 16436
This has probably come up before but how come the bass is so subdued when playing CDs and other hi-rez disc? "Where has all the low end gone, long time passing". I'm using HDMI from the Oppo to my Onkyo TX NR709.

That would be something to address in your AVR.

Thanks Grimes, but I'm looking for what that would exactly be.

jbug,
If bass is anemic when playing a CD via HDMI then something is wrong in the bass management configuration of your HDMI-capable AVR. There are no settings in the OPPO which reduce the bass output in the stereo LPCM digital audio, which is what is present on the HDMI when you play a CD.

There is no LFE channel on a CD of course. It is just 2 channels (stereo). So the only audio that will get sent to your Subwoofer (when using HDMI audio from the OPPO) is what your AVR extracts from those two channels via Crossover processing -- i.e., bass steering.

The Crossover setting in the OPPO only applies to its Analog audio outputs.

Check your speaker setup and bass management settings in your AVR. You may also have the Sub's own volume knob set incorrectly.

Some time spent with an audio calibration disc, such as AIX, Audio Calibration, Blu-ray, will be helpful. For example there is a Crossover test track which sends a tone to your Left Front speaker which sweeps back and forth through low frequencies. If things are set right in your AVR and Sub, that tone should be constant volume from end to end.

If you are using a subwoofer in your system, it may be due to your speaker size settings on the Onkyo. I suggest that you ask the question in the Onkyo TX NR709 Owners' Thread. You can probably get much better help with the specifics of setting up the speaker size and other bass management settings for your Onkyo there.

Thanks Bob and KC. I'll look into that when I get home.

For long-time Oppo experts, is there any kind of educated guess to be made on when a new release of refurbished 103's might take place?

Based on searching this thread, I think the last time they were available on the Oppo website was between May 7 and May 9 of this year.

I ordered mine on May 14, and I think they were available for a week or two after that. I think the Oppo factory refurbs are a great deal when they offer them and I couldn't be happier with mine. There was nothing that I could detect to distinguish it from a new one, and from what I've read about Oppo's refurb process, it was probably better than new (more thoroughly tested than a new one out of the factory). Sorry, I have no clue as to when they might offer them again.

You might try calling Oppo and asking them.

Call them. OPPO only puts refurbished on their websites when they have a ton of units they want to sell, or if they are temporarily out of stock of new units. Otherwise, you will be able to purchase refurbished players over the phone for $415.00.

After the last Beta Firmware does anyone else think the sound of the 103 is Brighter? I almost think the highs are too high now

I leave the Audio setting on LPCM and play everything that way;
post #11231 of 16436
^ That's pretty unlikely. HDMI output (LPCM) is not processed in the OPPO other than decoding. If you are hearing this on LPCM tracks, such as CD music, there's not even decoding happening.

Check your AVR for settings affecting that HDMI audio input.

I test with a 105, but its HDMI audio output should be identical, and I've not heard such a change.

I wanted to revive this issue that I'm still experiencing to see if anyone else sees this problem as well. Note that I am on the firmware before the update that killed sacd-r support, but it's my understanding that the oppo netflix app hasn't been updated since then anyway. I'm still having intermittent Netflix audio sync issues. This was supposed to be resolved on the latest (non-beta) firmware from six months ago, but it isn't. Is anyone not on the beta still having issues with audio/video sync on Netflix? These have been resolved for me for blu-ray/dvd playback, but every once in awhile I'll turn the player on, access the netflix app, and pick a stream which will have audio delayed by one second. This happens both on the digital and analog audio outputs on the 103. Stopping the stream, pausing the stream, or exiting the netflix app, or even power cycling the player or my avr doesn't fix the issue. If I choose a different stream and then go back to the orignal problematic stream, occasionally that fixes the problem, but usually it just stays messed up for the whole night, and then is fine the next day. Once a stream is out of sync, it's impossible to get it back in sync until a few hours or a day has passed. I assumed this was a netflix issue, but it's completely random and doesn't get resolved even after cycling the app or bdp-103. And it's not dependent on particular streams, sometime a problematic stream is perfectly fine the next day. It usually manifest itself on the first stream I choose after starting the netflix app. Other streams tend to work better. It's annoying because I can't fix it no matter what I do once it's started to happen. I'd guess it was my system setup, but I never had these issues with the bdp-93 at all in the exact same configuration. And the auio/video lip sync issues happen randomly once or twice every week or so. Anyone else have this issue?

Bob - most Redbook (older CD's) that I play via the OPPO with my Pioneer SC65 lack bass until I crank the volume up. Complete opposite with SACD's - - which sound fuller - - even on two channel, remastered discs. And headphones sound great - - both on CD's and SACD's.

Back in the old days of just a stereo, turntable and maybe a tape drive - - you could turn the knob of your receiver to handle the base & treble. Personally, I'm not so sure I'd want to mess around with the bass mgmt. settings of my Pioneer SC65. Movie soundtracks via Bluray sound fantastic with plenty of deep base and special effects. Music on soundtracks also sounds superb.

Doesn't it have more to do with the older recording technology (Redbook CD's) and the different style of AVR's (Home Theater) today? I do know that some folks augment their setups with amplifiers for the front three channels.

The latest beta does indeed make some changes to Netflix, so until you update to the latest there's not much anyone can offer you. I've never seen issues with this, nor do I see any now, but I admit to being pretty immune to noticing minor synch issues. The beta does allow you to revert to previous official firmware if you wish.

Your Pioneer SC-65 does have bass and treble controls, just not knobs. See page 70 in your Operator's Manual. The Tone Control must be turned on for them to work. Bass management is completely different than the old bass and treble controls. The bass "knob" control just raises and lowers the amount of bass. Bass management doesn't do this at all. Bass management determines if bass from everything other than the LFE channel (5.1 channel SACDs do have an LFE channel, 2 channel SACDs and CDs do not, most movies do but some do not) goes to its respective speaker, or to the subwoofer (or in some cases both). If your speaker sizes are all set to large (this is a bass management setting) and you play back a CD, 2 channel SACD, or some other material that does not contain a separate LFE channel, then nothing goes to the subwoofer (at least on many AVRs, there may be exceptions). So the subwoofer is turned on, getting no signal, and doing nothing. This will often result in significant lack of bass on material without an LFE channel unless the other speakers are rather large and handle low bass well (which is usually not the case in home theater systems).

I found on my Pioneer SC-77 the Full Auto MCACC setup set my speaker sizes to large which resulted in very anemic bass on CDs. Manually resetting the speaker sizes to small, which redirects the bass from the main channels that is below 80hz (or whatever the bass management crossover setting is adjusted to) to the subwoofer, made things sound a lot better. See the item titled "After using the Auto MCACC Setup, the speaker size setting is incorrect." in your Operator's Manual.

It's certainly up to you if you want change any of the bass management settings on your SC-65, but I think it was certainly worthwhile on my SC-77. Of course if some or all of your speakers have good bass down to around 20Hz or you are not using a subwoofer you may wish to set things differently.

I'm using a Pioneer 1522 (which is basically an Elite 65) and am running Oppo 103 Analog Stereo>Pioneer "B" speakers setting (stream direct) to the CD ins to a pair of large Kefs and I get plenty of bass. Note that the Pioneer doe not allow for any sort of sound management when using the "B" speaker settings (I went so far as to contact Pioneer about it) so the sound is "straight" from the source. But it is plenty bass-heavy. If I play multi-speaker music (SACD or HDCD) from the Oppo, it goes Oppo 103 HDMI (LPCM) >Pioneer BD in (stream direct)> 5.1/7.1 surround Kefs which have been set up using MCACC. The only thing I did there was to up the bass trim a bit in MCACC. The same setup I use for my movies. It does not sound thin at all using this setup. There is a good MCACC thread here http://www.avsforum.com/t/1112470/official-pioneer-mcacc-thread with lots of good info. It's only about 35 pages,

The Pioneer 1522 has no analog inputs, so how are you connecting the Oppo Analog Stereo to the 1522? Sorry if my question is dumb, still I don't have the Oppo... (yet) but I've the 1522 and Kef speakers too :-) and I'm interested in your configuration and results.

Would be great to hear your experiences!


I sent my Oppo-103 to Jena Labs for modification/upgrade. I received it a few days ago. I'm not a tech saavy, so I do not know everything that they did to it (I opened it and installed a region free kit which works with no issues). I've the Oppo connected to my Denon 3808 via HDMI and my TV is a Panny Plasma V10.

I could not believe what I saw when I re-inserted the player into my system.

At first I thought it was my imaginations, but after watching a few other movies with it, I'm certain that the video filter they installed is truly working, since the image depth has really increased. I never tweak the Oppo settings as it was suggested in the Oppo FAQ.
My power cord has Furutech Rhodium plated connectors (Fi-28) also and the cable is an Acrolink 6N-P4030.
I prefer digital audio. The Denon decodes it and I'm happy with it.

I attached a couple of photos for you to see some of the mods. The IEC is a Furutech Rhodium plated one which is not obvious in the photo.

"The Pioneer 1522 has no analog inputs"????
Of course it does- a whole slew of them. I ran 2 RCAs out from the Oppo to the Pioneer's CD in. All of those RCA ins on the back of the Pioneer are analog. I have HDMI running from the Oppo HDMI 1 out to the Pioneer HDMI BluRay (BD) in for surround (either video with audio or just audio) and assigned macros on my Harmony One to either watch and listen or just listen through HDMI via the Pioneer. I set up a macro for CD only via analog from the Oppo that turns on the Pioneer CD out only, no TV. The Pioneer reports "Analog Stereo" when this is selected. It reports PCM when the HDMI is selected. My surrounds are a set of Kef 3005s (I bought two extras to get to 7.1). My floor-standing Kefs are a pair of 304s from around 1980 that still sound great (and, to my ear, much better than the 3005s for stereo, even if they are not-eq'd). I bumped the sub trim 2db for the HDMI, the Pioneer chose "large" for the fronts but I get plenty of bass even so in my smallish living room. Crossover is set to 80. . Strangely, the Pioneer will output 7.1 (all speakers, even if you have 5.1 media) if you choose the A+B setup and select surrounds to your rear, not sides. I'm not saying the back surrounds. It has to do with a 5.1 setup as opposed to a 7.1. That's part of the MCACC secondary setup.

Your are right, it has Analog stereo inputs, though not the analog multi-channel inputs from where I guess is you could get better sound from the Oppo with 5.1/7.1 music. Thx for your reply.

I went this way, exatly from Dune d1 smart smile.gif The Oppo can not handle PGS subtitles in MKVs (with M2TS you must activate them "by hand"), so I changed to the AVCHD format. I don`t miss the Dune. Hope they won`t activate Cinavia for the German tracks tongue.gif

KC - I think we are talking about two different things here. I have my FL & FR speakers (Paradigm Studio 60's) set as "Large" since they handle bass very well. Even though my Center channel can handle bass, as well, it is set to "Small" (CC 690 V.5) because the heavy bass out of my center channel for movies takes away from the crispness of the dialogue - - which the CC 690 does incredibly well.

The issue for me and I've even used the Analog inputs on my Pioneer SC65 (CD Inputs) is that Redbook material - - plain old CD's STILL sound thin on bass unless the volume is cranked up. Even messing around with the different sound settings (Extended Stereo) do not sound anywhere as rich and deep as 5.1 Multi-channel SACD's (as you correctly stated about the LFE channel) or three and two channel SACD's - - which again, sound much fuller, bass wise, than any "Redbook" - older CD that I have played on my OPPO 103 via my Pioneer SC65.

We'll see if power helps at all as I am upgrading my system to add an amplifer which will move me from 130 wpc to 220 wpc via dedicated mono blocks (Wyred4Sound MMC-7 - Multi-Mono design).

Interestingly enough - -my headphones sound much better than my speakers for Redbook CD's. And my new found love of music coincidentally happened when I listened to my first SACD - - a two channel mix - Albert King's "I'll Play The Blues For You." Then, after listening to the Doors remastered in 5.1 - - it was game, set and match for SACD's and especially Japanese SACD's (JSACD) that I get from CD Japan.

Lastly - - I did a comparison with my headphones of the Doors Multi-Channel SACD versus the Doors "Redbook" CD that I have and even with the headphones, you can tell the difference in the bass sound. So, maybe this is a long winded way of saying that regular CD's for me still sound thin through my speakers and that music, in general, needs to be played louder than Bluray movies for my system. At the most - - my level for listening to Bluray movies is around -30 to -28 at the very most.

Music, on the other hand, can be down to -15 - - which is quite a difference. We'll see if power helps at all with both SACD's and regular CD's.

You already have messed around with the bass management settings of your Pioneer SC-65. Just understand that with your FL & FR speakers set to large, you are mostly likely not sending anything to the subwoofer(s) when playing any stereo material such as CDs. You might try setting them to small to see if you can tell the difference. I think Pioneer does suggest re-running Auto MCACC (Expert) after making that change as I noted in my previous post. That did seem to make a difference on mine, although I'm not sure what the MCACC difference is. (Running MCACC then changing speakers to small sounded different - less bass, than changing speakers to small then running Auto MCACC (Expert) with the Keep SP settings option.)

Run MCACC Full Auto to do initial setup. THEN go into it and change front speakers to Small. Then re-run it on Auto using the Keep SP settings. That should keep everything correct. And you can bump the Trim up 2db to get a bit more...bump.

Can anyone help with a basic question re uploading the new beta firmware via USB. Using a PC running Windows XP.

I've downloaded it and it saved to the USB stick - and it saves as a Winrar .zip file. I understand I need to unzip it before connecting to the Oppo, but when I do it unzips into a new sub file which I understand is no good for the Oppo as it has to be in the root file.

I'm not hugely techie with these things so I'm going round in circles at the moment. Can anyone help with some simple advice on exactly what I need to do so the software is ready to connect to the Oppo.
Many thanks.

There should be no zip file involved. Where are you getting this firmware? OPPO's web page has illustrated instructions, do they not help? http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-103/BDP103-firmware-60-0808B.aspx

Let me ask this question- if I am playing an older CD in Pure Direct mode - how is any signal getting to the sub woofer?

And, once I move to the Wyed4Sound MMC-7 amplifier, it will be discrete channel to channel input/output. In Pure Direct mode from my SC65 --with regular (Redbook CD's), there should only be two channel processing --correct? No LFE signal.

At any rate, thanks to everyone for answering my post. I really think it has more to do with older recording technology and I do believe extra clean power will help since music is listened to at a much higher volume than Bluray movies.

Thx again - Rico
