OPPO Announces Two New Blu-ray Player Models

BDP-103 and BDP-105 Provide High Definition Video and Audio from All Sources
   

After an award-winning streak of nearly two years by the acclaimed BDP-93 and BDP-95 Blu-ray players, OPPO Digital has announced two new universal Blu-Ray Disc players. The BDP-103 and BDP-105 are premium universal Blu-ray Disc™ players that support Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD (SA-CD), HDCD, and CD formats. Additionally, the players feature three USB ports as well as wired and wireless networking to support popular video and audio file formats including AVCHD, MKV video, high-resolution WAV and FLAC music, and digital photos. The players provide access to popular entertainment network services including Netflix®, VUDU®, Film Fresh®, Pandora® and YouTube®, with more to come.

OPPO products are known for their excellent picture quality, and the BDP-103 and BDP-105 continue in this tradition. Using a two-step video processing approach that utilizes a custom dual-core SoC and the latest generation of Marvell’s Qdeo® video processor, the players deliver a stunning theatrical experience with true-to-life picture. Additional video processing features include 4K up-scaling, 2D-to-3D conversion, 1080p24Hz output, HDMI 1.4 with Deep Color, Source Direct output, and extensive picture control and enhancement options. Two HDMI outputs are provided, adding to the players’ versatility by allowing one output to be used for video and the other for audio, and even enabling the player to drive two displays at the same time.

On the audio side, both players support all of the high-resolution audio formats with bitstream output and onboard decoding of Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio™. For SA-CD playback, users can choose between sending native DSD or converted PCM through the HDMI and analog outputs depending on their preference and equipment compatibility. The BDP-103 provides a configurable 7.1ch analog output that can be used in stereo, 5.1ch or 7.1ch mode. The BDP-105 adds audiophile-grade components including an analog output section sporting two ESS Sabre32 Reference DACs, a newly designed Toroidal linear power supply, dedicated stereo outputs with both RCA and XLR balanced connections, and a headphone amplifier connected directly to the DAC.

Last but not least, customers have always asked for ways to take further advantage of the excellent audio and video processing functions provided by the OPPO players, and the new players answer this request by adding two HDMI input ports, one on the front and one on the back, with the front HDMI input doubling as a Mobile High-definition Link (MHL®) input. Users can connect external devices such as set-top boxes, network streaming devices, and even mobile phones to take advantage of the players’ video processing power. The BDP-105 takes this a step further by adding an asynchronous USB DAC input that supports the USB Audio 2.0 standard, along with additional coaxial and
optical digital inputs. Users can stream bit-perfect audio from their computer to the BDP-105 without worrying about the jitter performance of their computer’s master clock thanks to the USB DAC’s asynchronous clock mode.

The BDP-103 and BDP-105 are designed for user convenience and installation flexibility. Beyond the included back-lit remote control, the players can be controlled via its IR IN, RS-232 control ports, and mobile phone control apps. Users will appreciate the quick startup and fast disc loading performance of these players. Accented with a heavy gauge brushed aluminum front panel, dimmable display and a sturdy chassis, the players fit well with any home theater environment or sound system.

The suggested retail prices are $499 for the BDP-103 and $1199 for the BDP-105.
Although the exact launch date has not yet been set, OPPO expects to release the BDP-103 in October and the BDP-105 by the end of 2012. The players can be ordered directly from the OPPO Digital web site http://www.oppodigital.com or purchased through authorized resellers.

Reason #85 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

Well, I've always been attracted by the world of pleasures that we can get from good hi-fi systems and more recently by good home theatre equipments. I was only 20 years old (23 years ago) when I bought a pair of Kef 105.4 reference series loudspeakers at $2,000. At that time, I earned only $6,000 a year, and my mother thought I was really crazy to spend so much money. But I have never regretted it and it is the same for all I have bought since then (over $25,000...). More recently, I have discovered your Web Site on the net, and I must tell you that I was very impressed by this incredible DVD search engine. It was not long before I subscribed to your magazine. I have sent your Web Site address to many friends who share my love for home theatre. I'm happy to tell you that they are also very enthusiastic about it. There is nothing that comes close to it. I’m also impressed by the quality of the reviews; in particular the very detailed commentary about sound and picture. I store on my Pocket PC the Picture, DD, DTS and critics rating for all my DVDs (close to 300...). Now, I'm hooked on your magazine (as well as the Web Site), and I can say that I read from cover to cover. I was also impressed with the way you push forward HDTV and in particular, D-VHS. I MUST TELL YOU THAT WE NEED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU NEED US... I appreciate that you are not just doing your job. I can tell that you are really passionate about it, as I am. In fact, if I lived near you, I would love to be part of your team. So, if I had to summarize my thought about why I read Widescreen Review, I would say first that with your magazine and Web Site, I'm much better informed, so I can make smarter equipment and software purchases for my hard-earned money and second but not least, I feel that I am in a modest way, helping you do the work that is important to push forward (faster and better) the wonderful world of home theatre. Keep up the good work. I am a fan from Longueuil (near Montreal.
