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: 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.
