    Congrats!

    I really don't have a system that is good enough for the 105

    The System I watch Blu-Rays and DVDs on consists of a 55" Vizio 240hz LED, Fios Cable box, XB360 and a Apple TV. No 3rd party speakers or amps.

    The wife just doesn't want an elaborate system in the living room.

    So eventually when I finish the basement and hook up a really nice projector then I'll get the current OPPO's flagship. Maybe it'll be the BDP-115 or 125! LOL

    Is that supposed to be the back of the 105?, what are all those connections for? Are they for 4K Devices?

    These units do much more than just play dvd/blueray, correct?

    Digital Noob question but this would replace the CD, DVD/Blueray plus becoming the system DAC for other gear? (music library)

    I'm hoping the 105's DAC is awesome with PCs. I love the integration of CD/Blu-Ray and USB all in one package. I'm not buying a new DAC until I see where this goes.

    The following is from Tom Andry at audioholics...
    While the BDP-103 looked to become the hub of your video content, the BDP-105 looks to add audio to that. It adds a coaxial and optical digital audio input and an asynchronous USB DAC input.
    The analogue section of the BDP-105 will have two ESS Sabre32 Reference DACs and a newly designed Toroidal linear power supply.
    Does anyone have an idea how running a squeezebox through the digital inputs and using the oppo's DAC's would compare to a stand-alone say $500-$700 DAC? Maybe that's a bad question until people actually hear the new oppo, but I'm just looking for generalities.

    If implemented properly, the Oppo should operate exactly as a standalone DAC. We will just have to wait and see. I once has a CA 840C that I used as a DAC in addition to a CD player. It's an awesome feature that I think CA really brought to the main stream and now companies like Esoteric and others are doing the same. It only makes sense that a sweet DAC should have multiple inputs for connectivity.

    I agree with this. If someone considers themselves a videophile then you dont want to be housing a PS3 or walmart Bluray player as your main BD player. I am guilty of the PS3 player way too long as I have been upgrading speakers, my tv and so on ... time to get serious with this ... I will be getting an Oppo 105 when it is released.

    Same here. My PS3 has been the only Blu-ray disc and Blu-ray rip network player I've used the last 5 years. 105 is looking quite tempting.

    Given OPPO's past performance, I would expect the scenario you describe as being just as good if not better. Some Marantz cdp's also have digital in's that some members here use and report very good results. I expect no less from an Oppo product. Oppo seems to be a very good choice for an all in one player and with the addition of digital inputs only sweetens the pot.

    Cool BDP-105 Released!

    Received this last night and I have one on order. Here's the text, but omitted the order link out of fairness to anyone that signed up early w/Oppo (plus, it's tied to my private email).

    "Thank you for your interest in the new OPPO BDP-105. You are invited to order the OPPO BDP-105 now by clicking this special link.

    We will begin shipping on November 13, 2012. The OPPO BDP-105 will come pre-loaded with our latest firmware. Firmware updates will be issued from time to time and as with any new Blu-ray player the frequency will initially be higher.

    Initial quantities are limited, and the order link is available only to customers who had registered to be notified of the OPPO BDP-105?s availability. Please do not share this link with anyone else. Orders are limited to one player per customer and are on a first come, first serve basis.

    If you miss out on this initial batch, the OPPO BDP-105 is expected to be widely available around Thanksgiving. We thank you for your patience and greatly appreciate your support."

    Yeah - I got that e-mail as well. Now just trying to justify to myself whether I need this or not :) It's not really adding any functionality that I don't have already (aside from DVD-A) ..hmm. The fact that it has a dual core SOC and can simply browse shared LAN folders for media is interesting though.

    I had to justify the cost, too.

    I'm running a SB Touch and was going to expand throughout my house w/1 or 2 more. Can't find any for the price I originally paid, so have rethought trying to piece more Touch's together @ significantly higher prices and on a discontinued platform. I have a raid NAS that serves all my music + family videos, pictures, etc, so am really interested for the browsing/integration, too. I realize there are other DVD players that will do this, but my goal was to add an external DAC to the Touch for the best SQ. Ultimately, I think (hope) the Oppo's DAC's will be a major improvement and I won't need/want to pursue anything else.

    The Oppo will reside on a 2 channel/HT rig w/my 1.2tl's. My 2 channel pre is an Adcom-750 and I'm able to bypass a Sunfire TG-III HT processor. The Adcom is connected via unbalanced to a Sunfire 300/2 power amp, so I'm also interested in the Oppo's unbalanced output to run entirely unbalanced from CD to the amp.

    Coincidentally, I need a new DVD player to replace a cheapo Sony. The Sony does everything except FLAC and wireless (physically can't run a hard line to it, either)...but seriously lacks in sound quality. The Touch will be moved to my bedroom.

    If it wasn't for Oppo's reputation, I would've waited and not purchased one of the very first models released, but I believe Oppo makes solid products and will stand behind them if there are any issues. I've spent lots of time and money upgrading my speakers and finding good used gear at competitive prices, so am comfortable this brand new purchase will be a welcome addition to my system. Plus, they offer a 30 day, no question guarantee. Worst case, I'd be out shipping.

    With all the points mentioned above...this purchase was "justified"

    Corrected...thinking one thing but typed another...meant to type balanced instead of unbalanced.

    OPPO's build quality is fantastic.. I stuck this in my two channel rig and have been listening to CD's all afternoon off and on, everything has sounded great!! Not that I didn't expect it not to since I do own the BDP-95 as well..

    Of course I haven't been able to play with all the features yet but this is another great unit from OPPO and I'm happy to own another unit from them..

    I've been very happy with my BDP-103. It just works perfectly. It's very sturdy and solid feeling and the remote is nice as well.

    Anybody able to do a picture quality compare between the 93 and the 103? If it is obviously better then I will upgrade my 93 to the 103.

    Yes, the last generation OPPO's are showing up like a swarm on Audiogon this last two weeks. Good time for a 95 if you are looking.
