Then what to my wondering eyes should appear but an audiophile grade blu-ray player (not just blu-ray - virtually everything, SACD, DVD-A, etc.) with pre-pro capabilities, accepting inputs from external devices and able to act as standalone high quality DAC as well. Unless you have a plethora of gear you may find as I did that you can use this BDP-105 to directly drive your power amps and act as your main processor and preamp. Streaming (wired or wireless) from DLNA or SMB shares and handling many file formats including .flac and .mkv. All this in addition to possibly the best blu-ray and upsampling output you'll ever feed your display.
When I bought my first multichannel player, I found that there was a significant improvement to be heard when playing the many wonderful RCA and Mercury 3-channel stereo (left , right, center) SACDs as 3 channels on 3 speakers in comparison to the 2-channel mixdown with a phantom center and this improvement was more apparent than ever when I bought the BDP 83. But with the significantly improved audio output once I upgraded my BDP 83 to a BDP 83 SE, there was a big trade-off and I ultimately found that the benefits of 3 channel play, of necessity through the multi-channel outputs, were considerably outweighed by the distinctly superior audio quality available from the dedicated stereo outputs, which automatically down mixed the 3 channels to two with a phantom center.Read more ›
At the time of writing this review, there is nothing like it in on this planet that does everything it does and the way it does. Simply OUTSTANDING!! Just buy it now if you can afford it or save for it if you can't at the moment.
I will be mainly reviewing the DAC/Audio side of it and few other features that are of interest to me.
I won't be doing the review of its video capabilities as it has the exact same video guts as its less expensive sibling BDP-103. Also if you are going to be using the HDMI/SPDIF audio out to another proc/receiver/dac, save your money and get the BDP-103 for $700 less. OPPO BDP-103 Universal 3D Blu-ray Disc Player SACD & DVD-Audio.
Top notch. The 105 comes in a soft bag and is very well padded inside the box. Accessories come in a separate small box. Reusability of packaging very high.
* Remote control.
* Beefy power cable
* HDMI cable.
* Wifi USB stick
* USB extension cable.
Disc drive is better than most but doesn't compare to some high end stand alone transports.
Built like a tank.
Heavy grade aluminum and steel body.
Top notch gold plated analogue and digital connectors.
As mentioned, there is no one to one competitor but following are some of the closest competitors with fewer features.
* Marantz UD7007 - No audio only digital inputs
* Marantz SA8004 - No bluray video.
* Cambridge Audio - 752BD - No USB audio input.Read more ›
The other bad news is that the headphone amp did not sound great with either of my headphones (Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro, Sennheiser HD-580). The 770s were no surprise, but I would have thought the 580's would have done pretty well. No luck.
One thing a lot of people don't know is that each of the two ES9018 SABRE DACs in the BDP-105 has 8 channels. In the BDP-95, ALL 8 channels of 1 DAC were used for the stereo outputs. In the BDP-105, they "stole" 6 of these DAC channels for other things: the headphone amp gets 4 channels, and the XLR output gets 2. Think about that-eight versus two channels of digital processing. That is a lot of processing power. Oppo tries to defend this on their wiki, in a way that really looks like they are making excuses. Here is what it says on the Oppo BDP-105 Hardware FAQ:
Q: On the BDP-95 the ESS9018 DAC was stacked 4-DAC channels per stereo Left and Right outputs channel. How are they configured on the BDP-105?
A: In the BDP-105's stereo board design, the 4 pairs of DACs in the ESS9018 DAC are allocated as: 1 pair for the RCA outputs, 1 pair for the XLR outputs, and 2 pairs stacked for the headphone amplifier.
Q: Does the lack of non-4+4 DAC stacking affect the audio performance?Read more ›

Believe it or not, this thing has a very good DAC. The DAC alone is worth the price you pay for the whole unit. In the other room, I've got $20K worth of equipment. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John
