Why don't you reach out to Oppo and ask them? Or call Amazon support and see if they can add it to inventory for you?

Cheers.

The question was what device is converting that DSD to Analog? Does that DSD chart supposedly reflect the Analog output of the 105? Or is HDMI DSD being passed to some other device (an AVR) that may be handling it incorrectly?

It's already known from previously published bench test results that the 105 correctly filters the high frequency noise artifact inherent in all DSD recordings as part of its DSD-Direct-to-Analog Conversion. The fact that the chart is showing what's being described as high frequency noise leads me to believe it doesn't actually show the Analog output of the 105.

The Silver BDP-105 was recently in Backorder. it is now back in stock on the OPPO Digital web store page. Crutchfield's site shows they expect to be back in stock by October 14.

Email OPPO if you want to find out when they'll enable ordering through Amazon.

Thanks very much Bob. I had been putting it off but all of the good reviews and specs are killing me! I want one... and I want it now!!! The extra $60 from my credit card coupled with an Amazon gift card I had laying around makes that the best deal in town for me... especially true for the silve unitr!

Has anyone connected their computer via hdmi directly to the 105? How does it sound? is it taking advnatage of one of the sabre32 dacs? Have you been able to play various audio and video files? Thanks
post #7416 of 10126
Also was wondering if you can connect the computer directly to oppo via USB and if the 105 would be able to play files that are on my computer and on any external hard drives that are connected to my computer?? Thanks
post #7417 of 10126
Woohooo!!! Just thought I'd post in case anyone else was interested.

Hi Alfred,

We were completely sold out of the silver BDP-105 for quite a while, and have only recently restocked. I would keep an eye on the silver BDP-105 listing on Amazon - it will likely be available to purchase again by the end of the week or early next week.

Thanks,

Note: I wish to purchase the 105 from Amazon during their 5% cashback window (certain credit cards). There are no silver units shown under the vendor (Oppo). Does oppo not stock the silver unit with Amazon? If they are just out of stock, do you have an ETA? The cashback window closes in Dec.

That's part of the whole point of the 105 - using it like a USB DAC. It works wonderfully.

The USB DAC input is only for "pushing" a stream to the player, it does not give you access to the PC or anything else. The player acts like a sound card.

The USB inputs on the player are for attaching storage directly to the player. Thumb drive, HDD, etc.

When considering computer connection to the 105:

I could have my laptop with attached storage -> connected to the 105 Via USB into the 105’s USB DAC and push audio files to it. Foobar2000 with WASAPI plugin required to ensure bit perfect playback from computer.

I could also connect the laptop via hdmi to the 105 and push video files to it? Has anyone connected via hdmi from computer to the 105 to push video files? Thanks a lot.

Hi Lotus,

I have my HTPC connected by both, the USB and the HDMI.
I usually use the USB connection for 2.0 listening (with J-River 19 using Android app for control > No video involved) and connect to my amp through the dedicated analog output.
For everything else from J-River (multi channel, video mostly MKV) I use the HDMI connection and let the Oppo (in split mode) transferring PCM to my AV receiver (Onkyo 818) for the audio (HDMI output 2) and direct (HDMI output 1) to TV (Sony W900A) for video. I find the Oppo doing an overall better video job than the Onkyo.

Both ways are working fine and please my ears and eyes!

I am considering dropping the USB connection for 2.0 listening, but still struggle (after almost a year) to make a firm difference between USB and HDMI connection and cannot yet decide which one is better for audio listening...

Hope that helps

Hi,

I'm fairly certain that my problem hasn't been discussed in this therad before. If it has, apologies.

While my 105 plays 2-channel DSD files (.dff) from my NAS flawlessly, the same cannot be said about multi-channel DSD files (also .dff). They always sound distorted and way too slow. When converted to multi-channel FLAC files, the problems vanish.

Has anybody had the same problems? Maybe there's a flaw in the encoding of the DSD files.

Make sure they are DSD64 and not DSD128 or later.

Try the same files through local storage and see if the same errors occur.

Flac over network from windows 7 not showing.
Converted from WMA and was previously being seen and played by a Sony bluray lossless player.
Is there something I'm missing?

If you are using Windows Media Server then non-native file formats will not show. So no FLAC, MKV, and so forth. Use something like oShare (http://sourceforge.net/projects/oshare/).
post #7426 of 10126
Thanks,
Figured it was something like that.
Using Jriver and Gizmo at the mo.

The Silver BDP-105 is now showing as back In Stock at Amazon. The "Seller" is OPPO Digital.

(And of course it is also available for purchase direct from OPPO Digital's own web store.)

They play fine when on local storage. So the problem seems to be with the NAS or the WiFi.

Also, something's wrong with reading the CUE files. The last file in every tracklist shows a weird number (7158273) instead of the track length.

Quick question. About to order the 105 but a little hesitant. Is there a new model coming out any time soon I should hold out for?
post #7430 of 10126
^ There's been no indication of that from OPPO. Anything else is just speculation.

If it helps, a purchase direct from the OPPO Digital web site comes with an easy, 30-day return policy, so all you risk is the shipping.

OPPO players are also known for having excellent resale value after newer models come out.

Question: I've missed more than one official firmware upgrade - will I need to download them one at a time and install them or are firmware upgrades cumulative so that only one upgrade will be installed? The "Firmware Upgrade via the Internet" instructions at http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-103/BDP103-firmware-58-0719.aspx#Internet say, at #7, "Repeat from Step 2 above until the player reports that it already has the latest version. This will ensure that the player downloads and installs all parts of the firmware update." I can't tell if this is designed to catch the rare case where part of an upgrade might be missed for some reason or if it's designed for the case I outline. (I'm sure OPPO has this situation covered and things will be clear when I do it, but I'm wondering what to expect.)
post #7434 of 10126
^ You only need the latest update. An update contains a few, separately installed parts, so those instructions simply insure that you've got all the parts of the single update. Usually one install pass will get you all you need.

The release notes for the firmware on OPPO's Support page for the 105, shows the version numbers for each of the parts. By checking in Setup > Device Setup > Firmware Information you can satisfy yourself that the parts are all up to date after the install.

By the way, although that 0719 firmware you found is indeed the latest "Official" firmware for the 105, there's a newer, 0808B Public Beta firmware available from that same Support page which includes some additional bug fixes.

There have also been indications from OPPO that another firmware release will be out before the end of October.

I'm expecting delivery tomorrow of my 105, and have a couple of questions re set-up. I've read through this and the 105 audio thread, and needless to say, my head is starting to spin.

Here goes:

My system is very simple: stereo-only, Adcom pre-amp; Carver power amp; "antique" ADS-Braun full-range bookshelf speakers filled out with a Carver subwoofer. Recently got a Vizio 60" TV. Comcast Xfinity STB.

I plan on running STB in native mode HDMI to 105 (STB audio set to LPCM); 105 HDMI 1 out to TV; dedicated 105 stereo out to Adcom preamp (no direct to amp for now--need to keep my turntable in system). Intend on ARC set up to access audio from TV internal Wifi apps/streaming and possibly audio from Wii.

I have no interest in expanding audio beyond my old-fashioned 2 channel stereo.

Assuming I keep my STB feeding LPCM audio, is there anything about this set-up I need to be wary of? Do I need to set up the 105 audio out to down-mix mode? Is there any advantage in my system to changing the STB audio mode and using a different setting in the 105??


FYI never even owned a Blu-Ray player before; intend on using the 105 for that purpose, DVD, SACD, CD, and some music streaming over my LAN. I'm an ex-recording engineer that prefers things simple and analog.


Thanks very much!

MediaControlHD features question

I do not currently have access to any iOS device. Can anyone please confirm whether or not Oppo's MediaControlHD app provides the following three things for MKV video files stored on a NAS?
  1. Subtitle selection.
  2. Audio stream selection, e.g. stereo or multi-channel.
  3. Back and Forward buttons for video chapters.

David

First Welcome!

Stereo, really! You don't know what you are missing, SACD multichannel, Blu Ray Audio all these sound fantastic and will make you head spin even more in a good way.
Try it you will never look back smile.gif

Look at Abbey Road recording studios with their five. B&W 800 Diamond for surround sound music

You can not generalize this smile.gif I went back to stereo almost 2 years ago. I don`t miss the "noise" behind me at all. Now I enjoy the stereo tracks of my DVD-A, SACDs and BD Audio smile.gif

Thanks for the welcome! Baby steps on the multichannel, though. Despite my tech toys, I'm an audio Luddite that still can't really accept digital. Remember, I'm keeping my preamp hooked up for turntable purposes. (And no, I never bought into quad on vinyl, either!)

Stereo is usually fine for music. If you are watching movies following thing are upgrade requirement:
1- subwoofer as most of the special effect (explosion, loud noise, scary low frequency effect) go there.
2- center speaker as most of the dialg goes there, unless you front speaker that are perfect in the midrange.
3- active room correction (audissey or anthem-arc) unless you have a dedicated listening/view room and nobody mind you moving furniture out of it.
