Well, I received my unit, and I was so excited, I went home for lunch and connected it to my Sony LED and Bryston SP3 processor. My first impression is that this is a cheaply designed, but well made, blu-ray player. The reason I call it cheaply designed is that it has no controls on the unit except power on/off and eject. You need your remote for everything else, so if you loose it, you are out of luck. Also, the instructions are on such cheap paper it seems like recycled recycle paper. However, it is definitely feature laden, but whether or not it betters the Oppo 103D is a matter of opinion. It certainly is not better made. But, it does have the ability to download apps like the new Apple TV4. It was easy to configure, but it took me a while to get sound in DVD-Audio. Yes, it does play DVD-A, but you can have only one HDMI connected. Two connected will convert the audio to a lower PCM or Digital signal. It took me about 1/2 hour to diagnose this problem. Regardless, the unit plays DVD-Audio quite well, and I was simply amazed at the sound. Sony has terrible management as they should have offered DVD-A years ago. Everyone else was offering SACD, but Sony I guess has a Betamax mentality.
The picture on this unit is as good as I have seen on my TV and once I saw a message on my TV saying 12 bit. The picture displays as well as my $1,500.00 Sony blu-ray, the BDP-S5000ES. I have not tries the hi res features on this unit, but assuming they work, the Oppo 103D is obsolete. For $350.00, this is a stellar player that I highly recommend unless you need to use the play and fast forward features on the unit as opposed to the remote.
