Understanding the Differences Between the BDP-103 and BDP-105

The OPPO BDP-103 and BDP-105 share the same primary components (including the mainboard, laser, and loader) for superb audio and video playback, and while the BDP-103 and BDP-105 are identical in performance when it comes to audio and video over HDMI, the BDP-105 offers a number of enhancements:
1. The BDP-105 features improved sound quality from its analog audio outputs with its implementation of dual 32-bit ESS Technology digital-to-analog converters, a toroidal power supply, and two sets of dedicated stereo analog outputs (balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA) for 2-channel enthusiasts. Customers who do a great deal of critical music listening using a very high end, analog connected system will benefit most from these additions.
2. The BDP-105 features a headphone amplifier for use with high-quality headphones.
3. The BDP-105 features three additional digital audio inputs: optical, coaxial, and a 2-channel asynchronous USB DAC input.

Furthermore, the BDP-105 is graced with additional aesthetic and ergonomic enhancements that include a larger 4.8 inch tall chassis, sculpted aluminum front panel, touch sensitive front-panel playback controls, availability of an optional rack mount kit, and availability in Black or Silver.

When to Enable HDCD Decoding

HDCD (High Definition Compatible Digital) discs can offer expanded dynamic range and improved audio resolution over traditional compact discs.

By default, HDCD decoding is disabled. You can enable HDCD Decoding from the Audio Format Setup menu:

1. Go to the Setup Menu and then Audio Format Setup.

2. Select HDCD Decoding and set it to On.

If you are using analog outputs for audio, you will want to ensure that HDCD Decoding is set to On. If you are using any of the digital audio outputs (HDMI, optical, or coaxial) whether or not you enable HDCD Decoding will depend on whether your receiver is capable of performing HDCD decoding on its own.

If your receiver cannot decode HDCD audio, set HDCD Decoding to On in the player. If your receiver can decode HDCD audio, set HDCD Decoding to Off in the player. In some cases, having HDCD Decoding enabled in both the player and receiver may result in occasional popping or crackling sounds due to HDCD being decoded twice.

Configuring and Accessing a Simple DLNA Server in Windows

The open-source application oShare is a free and easy-to-use way to share content with your OPPO player, and it has a number of advantages over using Windows' built-in Media Player in that it is capable of streaming FLAC and MKV files.

oShare Configuration

  1. Download the latest version of oShare from the SourceForge website: http://sourceforge.net/projects/oshare
  2. Extract the contents of the oShare_Release_V1.01.zip file to a location of your choosing.
  3. Run the oShare application within the oShare_Release_V1.01 folder that you extracted from the .zip file.
  4. When the application opens, it will default to the Shared Folder view.
  5. Clicking the + button in the top left corner opens a Browse for Folder window that allows you to choose which folders you want to share.
  6. From the General tab, you may rename the media server as well as set the application to automatically start when you turn on your computer.

Accessing the DLNA Server

After configuring oShare, you are now ready to access the files using your OPPO player.

  1. Ensure that the player is connected to the same network your computer is connected to (either via wi-fi or Ethernet).
  2. From the Home Menu, select Network.
  3. You will see a list of available servers you can connect to, and one of the options should be oShare (unless you renamed the server under the General tab within the oShare application.)
  4. Once connected, you should be able to browse and play your shared files.

Is the Darbee Edition Right for Me?

The Darbee edition of the BDP-103 incorporates the Darbee Visual Presence processor, which is a video enhancer that provides greater image clarity and increases the perception of depth by embedding stereoscopic depth cues within the video, resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience. The Darbee edition of the player shares most of the same features as its non-Darbee edition counterpart.

The Darbee's processing level is adjustable, which allows you to customize it to your particular taste. Unlike many other image enhancers or sharpeners, the Darbee processor does not alter the image in a global fashion, so it is able to reduce the amount of image artifacts that are created, and it does not adversely affect calibrated settings such as contrast, gamma, and color.

The original BDP-103 is known for its accuracy in reproducing video from all kinds of discs, and the Darbee edition of the player takes this one step beyond reference quality accuracy. When the Darbee Visual Presence enhancement is turned off, it is a reference quality player just like the BDP-103. When the Darbee Visual Presence enhancement is turned on, the user has the option to fine tune the video to his or her own liking. In summary, if you are looking for a quality player that accurately reproduces video, the BDP-103 is the right choice; if you are looking for a more customized experience beyond standard picture adjustments, the Darbee edition provides additional possibilities to fine tune your viewing experience.

A number of sample videos and interactive images are available on the Darbee Visual Presence website that demonstrate effects of the Darbee processor.
