Thank you kind sir. I guess I now must choose a different format for my iTunes collection. Or, I could just play USB in on my A/V receiver. Naawww! The CAA in me can't let it be. (constant adjusters anonymous).

I am interested to get your thoughts on it. I have a similar configuration except my receiver is the Yamaha RX-V673 - TV is the same.

I'm experiencing the lip sync issues that others have experienced, and I'm also having handshake issues with my receiver using bitstream, so I've had to change to have the Oppo convert to PCM.

I've read elsewhere that I should change to dual HDMI to resolve the handshake issue, but haven't tried it yet. I'm curious to see if there are any issues with the LG.

Everything is running quite smoothly. I am using dual HDMI (out of necessity), [1] to tv and [2] to amp. I have not experienced any issues with lip sync etc.

I watched "Creature from the Black Lagoon" in 3D last night and it was great! Even the wife was impressed!

John E. Johnson, Jr. finally adding his 2nd installment to his Secret's of Home Theater BDP-105 review, still not done, but now added:

Page 3: In Use
Page 4: On the Bench
Update
: "On the bench" as a lot more graphs and comments now, still WIP.

. . . AND WE'RE NOT THROUGH YET !

Quote:
The video circuit in the BDP-105 is the same as in the BDP-103, which is being reviewed by Chris Heinonen, and which will be published shortly. In this review, I will focus on the audio performance.
Quote:
Connecting the HiFiMAN HE-500 Headphones to the headphone jack on the BDP-105 was quite a revelation. The DACs for this output are double-stacked to allow for sufficient output current to drive headphones that are typically low impedance. The HE-500s are unique in that they use planar magnetic drivers, which are extremely light in comparison to standard cone-type drivers, so they respond to the smallest detail and nuance. The BDP-105 has such low distortion, it represents the best headphone amplifier I have ever heard.

I just got my 103 and see that connecting to tv and avr seems to be best option.
I am still new to this but once I connect it to my tv how do I connect for audio to my receiver? hdmi or analog? and which is better? and how do I know if my receiver can accept analog audio from the 103? I have a onkyo nr709

anyone tried using the oppo's ability to take an input from a satellite / cable box and process the video through it's better chips?

i'd like to try it, but i'm wondering just how much of an improvement to expect should i go to the hassle of digging into cables and stands in front of my tv.

It's likely that no one can undo the compression applied by the cable and satellite operators.

There are other issues to consider when using cable/satellite boxes with a video processor such as BDP-103. For cable and satellite TV boxes, ideally you would set the box to output "native" resolution -- i.e., what it sends out matches what is coming in for the program you are currently watching.

Most Dish Boxes cannot be set to do that. If that is the case then get the "best" imaging you would need to manually switch the DISH box's output to 480i, 720p, or 1080i, depending on the particular channel you are watching at the moment.

There is also a trade off of using native resolution on a DirecTV, TiVo, etc, compared to a fixed resolution, in that broadcasters use a mix of 1080i and 720p for HD or 480i (SD), and when they switch resolution you will get a delay caused by the handshake. This adds up to like couple of seconds if you are not using a fixed resolution out such as 1080i on your DirecTV, TiVo, etc.

Some early feedback was that the BDP-103 did a good job on up-converting 720P to 1080P/60 or 1080i to 1080P/60.

Secrets BDP-105 on the bench page four shows some recent bench tests added against asynchronous USB input usage now. (last eight graphs)

Quote:
Now we come to the beginning of the bench tests with the USB input. Technically, all the USB inputs on the BDP-105 are asynchronous, in that the bitstream is reclocked to the BDp-105's DAC and then decoded. This is accomplished by storing the bitstream in memory as it arrives, and then re-clocked for decoding. The "official" asynchronous USB input on the right hand side of the rear panel is designed to be connected to your computer through one of its USB ports. In any case, all the USB inputs for the BDP-105 remove the jitter that is inherent to USB connections.

Here is the first example, with a 1 kHz sine wave, at 16/44.1. The distortion - 0.0037% - is exactly the same as the measurement with the test signal being played on a CD (see graph above).

With 1 kHz at 24/192 sampling, distortion is 0.0003%, which is the same as the 24/192 signal played on the test DVD-A (see graph above). So, we finally have a signal being played through a USB port that is as good as playing it on a CD or DVD-A. This means you can store all your music, including high sampling rate (up to 24/192) on a hard drive, and connect it to one of the BDP-105's USB ports, and play it with the same quality as if you were using a disc. The end-of-days for putting CDs and DVD-As into the player is closer than we imagined.
New graph just added
Quote:
I also measured distortion at 1 kHz through the headphone output, with the signal being played on a CD. Below is the resulting spectrum. The output was 1.9 volts compared to 2.5 volts output through the XLR jack, and this lower output in relation to the noise floor resulted in a higher measured THD+N of 0.009% (compared to 0.003% with the CD test signal). The signal is very clean, and is why the sound was so good using those HiFiMAN HE-500 headphones.

OPPO UK has also now posted the PDF File download link for the BDP-103EU review, January 2013, by Patrick Cleasby, HiFi Choice, UK

* note HiFi Choice is focused on audio products, where as their sister publication, Home Cinema Choice Magazine is against video products. Comparing Home Cinema's earlier BDP-103EU review reflects the different perspectives.
