Since my display is only a 1080i display, i can not take advantage of the BDP-105 just yet. So, i sent my 83 in to get the upgraded Special Edition DA chips.. I just got it hooked up, so i don't have an initial opinion...


Does anyone else have an 83SE?

I have one but have to get an Oppo 103 to play 3D movies now that I have a 3D TV.

The 103 has the same audio and video with the HDMI so I'm going with it.

Since you're following the thread, and something like this is just about impossible to search for, do you know if the DTS Neo:6 in the 105 does 5.1 to 7.1 up-mixing? The manual refers to stereo-to-7.1 but no mention of what it does to 5.1 sources.

I'm thinking about getting a 105, 7 channels of power amps, and doing away with a receiver entirely. It's got an HDMI input for my PS3, and does volume control, channel trims, bass management, and distance compensation; that's all I need from a receiver.

What is, "Our House"?

I'll take "1980s One Hit Wonder Songs" for $600, please, Alex.

I contacted Oppo directly, alas they said that it only works for stereo sources.

Not a deal breaker, but a bummer, because the way my room is set up, without the rear channels, there seems to be a hole in the surround field. I'll keep thinking, and maybe the 115 will be out by the time I make up my mind, with every last feature I can dream about. smile

Nice work, JP.

Chris, I was only half-kidding. I'm not at all comfortable with doing all the switching and processing in the player. I hate having to shift my paradigm.
