Great for what's there, but needs the ability to handle more formats.

  • Summary: I have two BDP-105 media players that also play Blu-ray DVDs. We have two home theater setups in the house. What's in this device is superb. What's missing is the ability to play music from iTunes libraries. Fortunately the Marantz 7701 Pre/Pro processor can do that task, but doesn't have near the quality of the OPPO. My work around was to convert all the lossless music that I moved from my CD collection into an iTunes library into FLAC.

Swiss Army Knife

  • Summary: The Oppo BDP-105D is truly a Swiss Army Knife of DVD Player + Streaming device. It easily found and plays my digital library of mostly 96/24 FLAC files on a Vortexbox. These and Rhapsody tracks sound better using the Oppo as both streamer and DAC than I have experienced before. Given that, the clunky interface needs much improvement. Prior to the Oppo, I used the Squeezebox Touch as my door to both my NAS and online services.
  • Pros: Fine DAC, good NAS streamer, great flexibility in speaker set up, good selection of inputs and outputs, great DVD player, can use an add-on Roku stick via MHL port in back.
  • Cons: Needs a much improved iPad app. Needs discreet input selection instead of a single scrolling button on the remote.

truly high fidelity

  • Summary: I use this Oppo unit to play SACD discs, and have compared it to a NAD Masters Series M5 SACD player I have; I cannot tell any difference in terms of resolution and clarity between the two units. So sonically it is very impressive. I also enjoy the local networking features; using my iPad, I can listen to music from several computers on my network system, but the networking software is a little glitchy and needs to be more robust.

Oppo

  • Summary: I really like the Oppo 105D. The player is well built and looks great. The analog sound is awesome. The Blu Ray player is beautiful and loads so fast it isn't even funny. The only drawback is the Darby is barely noticeable and not worth the extra cash. Save it for some discs.
  • Pros: Sound quality, build quality and load speed.
  • Cons: Cost. Darby not really worth the extra money. Crutchfield was a joy to do business with as usual.

Oppo BDP-105... 4.5 Stars

Anonymous, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I have had my Oppo BDP-105 since Christmas. The audio and video performance has been exceptional. I rate the unit 4.5 stars almost a 5.0 (see cons below) I have my unit hooked up in 5.1 analog audio for movies, SACD, and TV and dedicated 2 ch for CD and MP3. The value to me is the variety of input and output options, especially the ability to use dedicated analog outputs for multi-channel and 2 Ch audio. The two HDMI inputs are also a bonus.
  • Pros: Two HDMI inputs The best audio performance I have ever heard. I have played music in the following formats CD, SACD, and DVD. Movies and TV also sound great. I have watched the Hobbit and Star Trek Into Darkness Blu rays and both have sounded great. The video has remarkable detail. You can stream Pandora directly from the Oppo and it sounds great, significantly better than when I streamed Pandora from my IPad directly into my Pre-Amp.
  • Cons: The firmware version out of the box did not sync well with my cable box. Once I updated the firmware the problem was fixed. For the price the Oppo should not have sync issues out of the box. The display on the unit scrolls "screen saver" after a few minutes, which can be a distraction. If you want to stop playing a movie and start where you left off you must either open the door or turn off the player. If you stop & switch functions the disk will start at the top of t...

Expensive but worth it.

Vito Colletti, Amazon

  • Summary: Expensive but worth it. While the Blu-ray/DVD picture quality is no better or worse than some standard Blu-ray/DVD players I've owned, the other features are worth it if your an audiophile. I can't speak highly enough of the DAC Sabre audio chip that processes MP3/Flac files off a CDR disk, network streaming audio/video files (recommend using oShare as the client streaming software; just do a Google search for it, it's free), standard CD's & SACD disks.

One of the best!!!

  • Summary: I purchased Oppo BDP-105 and the Cambridge Audio 752 for my dedicated home theater to decided which component complimented my system. I use B&W 800 series speakers, Arcam AV 9, Rotel amps and Purist Audio Speaker cables and interconnects. Both Oppo and Cambridge offered great video and audio. Video output was substantially better than my favorite blu ray player: Panasonic bdp 350 and Sony.
  • Pros: Great video and audio. High quality construction, so many features! Great unit in general
  • Cons: cheap looking remote
