Not sure of the cost of the Sony X1000ES but the build quality doesn't look very impressive for a Sony player carrying the "ES" designation.

Can someone confirm that the Oppo BDP 103 can play blu-ray audio discs? I assume yes, but it's not listed on the list of compatible discs (like BD video, BD 3D, SACD, DVD-A, CD-R, DVD+/-R, AVCHD, etc.). I've gotten just about all the SACDs that I want at this point that are out there (in print or OOP) but there are a few tempting BD-audio that I would like to get if it plays fine on my Oppo.

I can confirm that the Oppo 103 plays Blu-ray Audio discs. I was playing the Who's Quadrophenia Blu-ray Audio on my 103 this morning. I believe all Blu-ray players will play Blu-ray Audio discs.

Actually there's no such thing as a "Blu-ray Audio" format. Its just marketing, and the discs are really just plain old blu-ray format.

rdgrimes is correct, Blu-ray audio is a normal blu-ray, just authored in a way to not need a video screen to navigate the menu. It will play when first inserted into a player. Previous/next buttons work the same as a CD, and pressing the red/green/blue/yellow buttons correspond to the stereo/surround/lossless/etc audio tracks, again so you don't need a tv to see the on-screen menu. I forget which button color maps to which audio tracks. Pressing the numbers on the remote work the same as a cd too. Mark Waldrep of AIX records is not a fan because he says he would have to delete the videos from his BDs to get the Blu-ray audio sticker, which he finds silly. He also says that if you really don't want to see the video, then press the Pure Audio(1) button, or equivalent on your remote control. I noticed that the just released Sgt Pepper's 50th anniversary BD has a really nice never before released video interview by Giles Martin, and therefore can't be a blu-ray audio BD.

(1) Oppo remote controls have a button named "Pure Audio" which simply blanks the video output but not the audio output.
