Summary: I've been an audiophile for well over 50 years and the Oppo is, far and above, one of the finest audio/video product I've ever used. From the moment I opened the box I knew I'd be in for something very special - and boy, was I. The care and packaging impresses from the start.
Best player in terms of audio/video output, unless you want/need the analog capabilities of the BDP-105

Summary: The Oppo BDP-103, as is expected from pretty much any Oppo product these days, is nothing short of amazing. It offers playback of every format disc you can think of (except HD-DVD unfortunately) and this is where the "Universal" monicker comes in.
Summary: This player does it all. The upscaling of dvd's and my Direct tv receiver to 4k is amazing. Setup is easy and quick. Picture quality is best when done by using your TV adjustments. Darbee offers a lot of different options so be sure to try them all. Excellent tech support for all questions.
Summary: Lots of problems with audio drop outs at first, while my other Sony and PS3 work fine. I Was able to do a factory reset and all my problems have seemed to go away. Not sure what happened, but after software update, previews stopped playing audio.
Superior player with a caveat as to the analog output

Summary: This comment is for those planning on using the analog outputs. Please be aware that the power supply, DACs and analog output stage of the 105 make it audibly superior to the 103. Therefore, if you are planning to use the analog outputs, and if your budget allows, as between the 103 and the 105, buy...
Great product, would not get the Darbee edition if purchased again

Summary: Great player, but not sure it is worth the premium price. Pros: -high quality chassis -great documentation -excellent picture quality -lots of controls to tweek out the picture for your setup -fast loading Cons: -can be complicated for non-Techies -cannot tell much difference with the Darbee image...
Summary: Amazing picture and sound! My Panasonic Plasma has never looked better and it always looks awesome. Can serve as media PC for most content. Cons: At this price point we should have Gig Ethernet and USB 3.0 for connectivity.
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.
