Summary: I'm a little late to the party with this review. However, I just, in the last four weeks, scored myself one of these machines. I can't say enough about it. The player's ability to reproduce music is simply astonishing. While listing to Paul Lewis play Beethoven's piano concerto #2 (Harmonia Mundi SACD) last night, I got the emotional rush that I usually get in a good music hall. I think that for me, it the emotional pull of the sound that is so great about this player.
Summary: This player plays whatever I throw at it perfectly. I have owned three cheaper players in the past and each of them was lacking something I needed. But this player has it all! I mainly use the player to play movie files, .ts, avi, mpeg, etc using the DLNA client feature of the player through my home network ,and using the DLNA server (Serviio) in Linux. I also noticed there seems to be bettter fidelity and stereo separation when playing MP3s.
Summary: This review is only for using this as a CD player...Have not put it into a video system. It sounds great, perhaps most notably in making instruments like horns less harsh at loud volume. It sure is an improvement over the Onkyo player that I hated from the word go. I think that the performance on regular CDs is somewhat more improved than that with SACDs, though I have no real proof of that...just my impression.
Summary: I returned the BDP-105 and got a BDP-95. I think the BDP-95 sounds much better, but the 105 is quite good. (See my BDP-105 review for details on that player). The BDP-95 lives here now. I love it. The interface for playing high res files from USB sticks and hard drives is fine for me (not that iTunes would not be nicer). System: Martin Logan Aerius i speakers, Krell KAV-300 i amp.

Summary: OPPO BDP 105 now available is #1 OPPO-BPDP 95 is number 2 ,but in reality is because of updated added features this does not change the fact that both have the most important the SABRE 32 REFERENCE AUDIO DAC Simply the best ever made in history, in fact recording studios equipment uses it costing 3 to 6 times more, but OPPO came along and made a change to that adding it to the BDP 95 and 105 it also has the video processor QDEO BY MARVEL which is up to now the Best Video...
