Unfortunately I ended up having a defect in my Oppo. I'm writing this in case anyone else sees the same issue. When I copied a couple of my movies on DVD+DL Discs the Oppo froze up when it got to the dual layer change point. It would then give an error message stating that there was no disc detected. I called Oppo service and they thought it might be related to either the media or the software that I was using to copy the disc. They asked me to send in the disc for them to analyze. After they received it, they told me that it was playing fine on their machines, so I needed to send my machine in for repair. It was strange because it would play every other piece of media I had just fine. This same media played fine on my PS3 and Toshiba HD DVD player so I also suspected it was a problem with the Oppo player.
To Oppo's credit, they did pay for the shipping of the machine back and I trust they will be able to sort the problem out. Of course I am disappointed that I have to be without my machine for nearly three weeks but I guess a defect can happen to any manufacturer; even Oppo. Even so - this shows that even Oppo doesn't build totally bullet proof machines.
I was looking for a Blue Ray player that could also play DVD Audio and SACD Discs as I have many in my collection. I previously had to have a separate, older, Panasonic Blue Ray player to play my DVD Audio Discs and a Sony CD/SACD player. I wanted to consolidate both into one player as my Panasonic Blue Ray player was becoming very outdated and slow.
The only player on the market that could do this was the OPPO 103. I thought the price was a little steep but, considering all the positive reviews on OPPO and their excellent customer service, I decided I would spend the money and get the Darbee Edition.
The product came extremely well packaged. Other Companies should take a lesson from OPPO here. In fact the presentation of openning the box was excellent with a very nice fabric cover protecting the actual unit.
The second thing that impressed me was that I found an actual printed manual in the box. Many Companies are eliminating this due to cost these days. Not only that, but this is the best written manual I have ever seen in any product. The directions are clear and explain everything the unit does in detail. Bravo!
The unit was easy to setup even without the directions. The first thing I did was to connect everything to the unit including two HDMI outputs to my Yamaha Aventage Receiver. One output was for my Blue Ray and DVD playing and the second one was to output DSD digital SACD streams directly to my receiver as the first HDMI output will not do this. I had to change a setting in the menu options on the video outputs in order to accomplish this. (Which was clearly documented by OPPO)
The unit then told me there was a firmware update available which it updated over the network. I also burned an ISO disc of the latest beta firmware and installed that. Both processes went without a hitch.
The unit played everything I threw at it. The first thing I noticed was how fast everythingn loaded and played. Blue Ray and DVD playback were both excellent. I turned on the Darbee effect on a couple of my DVD's and noticed a nice improvement. As others said, it won't blow you away, but does offer a very subtle enhancement. Having the demo function on the Darbee is nice as you can see the visual effect of having the processing on and off with your own content. I haven't had a chance to try it out on some of my better Blue Ray discs yet. Others have said the Darbee effect is best with better content.
The unit also played my DVD-Audio and SACD discs without a hitch. I am extremely impressed that it will output a pure DSD stream directly to my Yamaha receiver. There, the Yamaha processes the audio stream directly to it's DAC's. This produced excellent results. (My Yamaha receiver uses quality 192khz Burr Brown DACS so the audio results are impressive)
Next I attached a large hard drive of FLAC files directly to the units USB connection. Once again - it played these files with great results. My only niggle is it is quite difficult to navigate through hundreds of FLAC files using the Oppo and it does not seem to have a search function or the ability to create playlists. I have a media server which can do those tasks so this is not a big deal to me. It does appear to read playlists created by Foobar. It would be nice if they also incorporated this ability with Media Monkey, which is my main play back application.
I also have a nice collection of HD DVD discs which the Oppo cannot play. It would be nice if it could also play these discs, but in fairness to oppo, HD DVD is no longer a viable standard.
I just can't find any real negatives with this player. In fact, I couldn't find a single player that could do everything the Oppo 103D can. There really wasn't any competition. Adding the Darbee video processing was a very nice bonus for the extra money and I'm sure this will play dividends as the Darbee software can be upgraded through future firmware updates.
The build qulaity of this product is excellent. Fit and finish are quality and its obvious that OPPO spent a lot of time engineering this product designing it close to perfection.
The product just gets out of the way and plays your media content the way it is supposed to.
I'm very impressed and I'm not easly impressed with products these days. I don' regret spending the money on this product at all. In fact, for everything it does so well, Oppo could have priced it higher.
I bought it primarily for the sacd and dsd super audio capability. Super duper superb on all that! But that's only the beginning.
Am currently being blown away by the 2010 Blu ray remaster by the a Rolling Stones of their 1972 Texas concerts "Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones" which I was fortunate to attend during filming in Houston. Playing it through the Oppo DACs to the analogue rca outputs yields incredibly sharp music audio compared to the tv dac I used at first. Seems the Stones bought and reworked the audio and visual themselves at great expense says Mick. I could not understand how it carried super audio quality on a Blu Ray. The answer: dts-HD Master Audio the Stones employed allows lossless bit for bit transfer from the original analogue tapes! This allows a tremendous amount of data to be moved in an extremely fast system direct to your amp and speakers.
And now Ladies and Gentlemen there's more to come:
The Darbee feature really makes this old 16 mm film jump to life. I have it set at 96% in Hi-Def mode. To it looks like a 35 mm film given proper illumination in the source material. Utterly jaw dropping quality on this challenging historical document.
Also tried South Pacfic in DVD and was equally blown away and Rocky Horror Picture Show blu ray. Everything I have thrown at it has astounded me! Really: Sacds Stones from Japan, my old Virgin Stones Hybrid CDs, and Dark Side of Moon, DVD-a, hdcd Joni Mitchell three albums, and straight CDs.
Steve Hoffman remasters old analog tapes to sacd quality for a living. His very fine and replete website comments sold me on this product. It is the best audio visual equipment I have bought in many decades-- perhaps forever-- and I have been investing heavily all my life! Amazingly I fought incremental battles for expensive small gains in music quality, but now Oppo 103D gives me PERFECT music for a modest sum plus a visual level I never hoped to see in home theater.
