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.
Conclusion: If ever there is an audio/video component that offers great value with a capital V, it's the Oppo Digital BDP-105. While it's billed primarily as an audiophile-oriented universal disc player, it brings so many other perks to the table: networking connectivity, Ultra HD upscaling, a reference-quality internal DAC, preamp capabilities, a headphone amplifier, and a host of other functions.
Excerpt: Ever since their first player (the OPDV971H) started getting attention in early 2005, OPPO Digital has built a reputation for quality, performance, customer support, and value in disc players. The BDP-105 is twelfth player (and seventh Blu-ray Disc player) to bear the OPPO Digital name in the US market.
Excerpt: Last year, I had the opportunity to review the Halo P 7 multichannel preamplifier from Parasound (Home Theater, June 2012). For that review, I mated the P 7 with Oppo’s then flagship Blu-ray player, the BDP-95, and it was a match made in heaven. I didn’t do a formal review of the BDP-95, but I made sure I conveyed how highly I thought of the reference Blu-ray player in the review and how its outstanding analog audio section was one of the best I’ve used.
Summary: What we see here is not just another universal Blu-ray player, but a player that is morphing into a media server. It has every type of input that one could ask for, including a connection for a hard drive through the USB port, that gives you unlimited space to store your music and video files, as well as an HDMI input, coaxial and optical digital inputs, and wireless network, which allows you to access music and video files anywhere in your wireless home network.
