Summary: You can pay more for a dac alone and not do as well as the 105. You can buy a blue ray player for more and not do as well. Ditto for cd, sacd, and/or DVD players. Its audio preamps are as good as anyone's for the money. To be able to get all of these in one one for this price is truly awesome.
Pros: very good audio dac, very good headphoe amp, excellent analog preamp out, very good digital input selections
Summary: I connected BDP 105 to Schiit Lry with Telefunken tubes-HE 5LE, and listened to Wagner Sigfrieds funeral march, Bach Mass B minor, and some vocals of Wagners.
The first impression was fluidity and being spaciousness so that I stood in the concert room.
Conclusion: It is easy to become a fan of OPPO. They really have you covered with this player. It doesn’t matter what format of movie you want to watch, what format of music you want to listen to or if you’re looking for a great DAC or headphone amp, the BDP-105 fits the bill and so much more.
