Highly Recommended. Excellent Sound, Picture Quality and Avant-Garde Features.

Summary: Despite this not being the audiophile player in the oppo lineup, the sound is exemplary for the price. I have the FR/FL analog outputs going directly to a topping tp21 integrated amp. The topping is only 15wpc but the sound is robust and textured utilizing the oppo's DAC. Every detail in the sound field is represented with gravitas and clarity which brings life to the sound. While the sound is fairly natural it stops short of having any significant 3d qualities.
Summary: Oppo arrived on time and was extremely well packaged. Somebody really put some thought into this device. I haven't installed it yet but just going through the extremely well written manual I have no doubts about the capabilities of this machine. It simply is outstanding when compared to the specs on other machines.

Summary: So glad I read about OPPO and purchased this one to integrate with new Sony 4k UHD TV. Darbee processor is icing on the cake. Been having fun checking out the apps and streaming so far. Will be looking at more OPPO products to add!
Summary: The picture and sound are probably no better than what I got from the Oppo BDP-80 that this is replacing... until I kick in the Darbee effect. It's subtle but it definitely adds detail and dimensionality. It's good enough that I'm routing my satellite receiver and media player through it to use the Darbee effect on those as well. It also adds the ability to handle 3D Blu-rays, which I'm enjoying to a degree.
Summary: If you're in the market for a Blu Ray or HD audio (SACD, DVD-A, Blu Ray Audio), this player in this price point can't be beat. Image and sound quality are second to none, detailed onscreen settings allow for an enormous ranges of setup options, and dual HDMI outputs allow for great flexibility, especially when teaming this player with a surround sound processor, preamplifier, or receiver that does not allow for a HDMI 3D compatibility.
one of the best Bluray disc players on the market today

Summary: As advertised, one of the best Bluray disc players on the market today. Made a big difference in my system's video and audio quality. The 7.1 analog sound is really what I wanted and it delivers this audio with aplomb. Also, plugged my Sat box into the Oppo to take advantage of the video processor and there was an immediate bump in video quality. The player also upscales my regular DVD library making them look fantastic. I highly recommend this player.
Excellent player, but the user must pay close attention to the Setup options, in order to get its optimum performance.

Summary: I have been an Oppo owner for a long time now, the BDP-103 being my third player. These machines are designed with one goal: to allow the user to listen to music alongside video material, in the best way possible. Its basic player is meant for those who want to use an external audio or video processor, although it has a 7.1 analogue output for soundtracks and music.
Summary: Arrived promptly, not a scratch. Looks great, setup was a snap, works fantastic, picture quality is amazing. Netflix sign-on had a glitch as it wouldn't accept my CC info, not sure if that's a problem with the machine, but since that can be done separately online, no harm done. Darbee function sometimes improves the picture quality, sometimes not, so it seems more to be a matter of preference, but still a nice feature to have. Overall a great machine.
