Special Features of the UDP-205
BEST-IN-CLASS AUDIO PERFORMANCE

Dual SABRE PRO DACs
OPPO UDP-205 is equipped with two ESS Technology ES9038PRO DACs for both stereo and 7.1 channel analog audio. The ES9038PRO is the flagship of the ESS PRO series. It sets a new benchmark for audio excellence with its best-in-class 140 dB of dynamic range in a 32-bit, 8-channel DAC. The ES9038PRO SABRE DAC features ESS’ patented 32-bit HyperStreamDAC technology, which is responsible for the outstanding clarity and sound stage.
USB DAC and Coaxial/Optical Inputs
An asynchronous USB DAC input supports sample rates up to 768 kHz PCM and DSD 512. For additional convenience and flexibility, the UDP-205 can convert digital signals from cable and satellite boxes, televisions, video game consoles and other digital transports with coaxial and optical digital outputs to analog. By bypassing the low fidelity, poor quality DAC of traditional computer soundcards, the UDP-205 turns any computer into a high performing multi-media source by utilizing the ES9038PRO DAC.

HDMI Audio Jitter Reduction
The UDP-205 features a high-stability, high-precision HDMI clock and a special HDMI audio jitter reduction circuit. This unique design significantly reduces jitter and eliminates timing errors, allowing you to enjoy your music with increased accuracy when you use the audio-only HDMI output port for connecting the audio signal. PCM and DSD signals rely on the HDMI clock directly, so the HDMI audio jitter reduction circuitry can improve the sound quality of PCM and DSD audio. For compressed bitstream audio, it helps to ensure error-free transmission, and may improve the audio performance depending on whether the audio decoder in the A/V processor or receiver uses a synchronous or asynchorous clock scheme.
7.1-Channel Analog Output
Individual analog 7.1-channel surround outputs are ideal for connecting to a 7.1-channel or 5.1-channel surround sound system. The UDP-205 delivers an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience thanks to its second ES9038PRO DAC chip. The 7.1-channel analog output can also be configured to a stereo down-mix mode as a Zone 2 audio source.

Dedicated Stereo Output
In addition to the 7.1-channel surround audio output, the UDP-205 has a stereo audio output powered by a dedicated ES9038PRO DAC chip and specially designed buffer and driver stages. The stereo output offers both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended connectors. The balanced output features a true differential signal path all the way from the DAC to the 3-pin XLR connector. By transmitting a pair of differential signals, the balanced output provides better common-mode noise rejection and improves signal quality.
Headphone Amplifier
For a more intimate listening experience, a pair of headphones can be connected directly to the UDP-205’s built-in headphone amplifiers. The headphone amplifier is connected directly to the ESS SABRE PRO DAC and offers a unique performance advantage over standalone headphone amplifiers. Comparing to the built-in headphone amplifier in our previous generation BDP-105/105D players, the new design offers more power and higher performance.

ROCK-SOLID BUILD QUALITY

Toroidal Power Supply
A toroidal power transformer offers superior power efficiency and much lower exterior magnetic fields over traditional laminated steel core transformers. The UDP-205 has separate power supplies for digital and analog circuitry to eliminate virtually all harmful interference. The analog audio circuitry is powered by a massive toroidal power transformer, which provides a very clean and robust power source to the audio components.

Reinforced Chassis Structure
The UDP-205 features a brushed aluminum front panel and a metal chassis that continues the tradition of excellent workmanship found in previous generations of OPPO universal players. Four heavy-guage machined feet provide a stable foundation for the UDP-205, and isolate it from outside vibration. A new double-layered chassis further enhances the rigidness and vibration-canceling capabilities. The high quality metal construction is designed to impress and to perform.

Fanless Passive Cooling
The internal layout and chassis design promote healthy air flow so critical components can be naturally cooled. Strategically placed heatsinks and ventilation grills allow the UDP-205 run both cool and quiet without the need for internal or external fans. The thermal design has been optimized, analyzed, and stress-tested to ensure reliable operation for years to come.


Common Features of the UDP-205 and UDP-203
ULTRA HD RESOLUTION AND HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE

4K Ultra HD Video
The UDP-205 supports the playback of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs. Packing a resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, UHD Blu-ray delivers four times the pixels of Full HD Blu-ray. The UDP-205 is also capable of playing 4K media files and user generated content. Support for decoding the HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K, and Hi10P video codecs provides increased compatibility with user generated media.

High Dynamic Range
The UDP-205 supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut. The enhanced resolution, refined contrast, greater brightness, and expanded color produce stunning video with unparalleled clarity and detail. In addition to supporting the HDR10 format on discs and video files, it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion of HDR to SDR for older displays, as well as conversion between various color spaces such as BT.2020, BT.709, and BT.601.

Dolby Vision Upgradeable
Leveraging hardware designed to support Dolby Vision, customers can expect a firmware update in 2017 that brings Dolby Vision support to the player. Dolby Vision transforms the TV viewing experience by delivering striking highlights, brilliant colors, and deep darks never before seen on standard television screens, and OPPO is committed to bringing this exciting technology to the UDP-205.

EXPERTISE AND QUALITY

Reference Quality Video
The UDP-205 combines the latest technology with OPPO's many years of experience in delivering high quality video and audio. A customized quad-core video decoder/processor integrates OPPO's advanced video decoding, processing and optimization expertise.

High Precision Disc Loader
A high-precision, well-balanced laser optical disc loader ensures smooth and reliable playback of all types of disc media. An optimized laser mechanism provides super fast disc loading and strong error detection & correction.

Exceptional Build Quality
With its a brushed aluminum front panel, a rigid steel chassis and gold plated connectors, the UDP-205 exemplifies OPPO's attention to quality and details. The solid build quality not only presents a sleek aesthetic, but also ensures dependable operation and reliable connection.


UNIVERSAL DISC AND FILE PLAYBACK

Multiple Disc Formats
The design of the UDP-205 focuses on quality playback and universal compatibility with multiple disc and file formats. In addition to the latest UHD Blu-ray, the UDP-205 supports regular Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and audio CD.

Media File Playback
The UDP-205 is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports on the back and another USB port on the front. Users can play video, music and photos from USB hard drives or thumb drives.

Home Network Access
Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet connects the UDP-205 to users’ home networks, so users can easily play media files stored on computers and home servers.


HIGH RESOLUTION AUDIO

Lossless Audio Decoding
The UDP-205’s video performance and universal compatibility is further complemented by its support of lossless high resolution audio. The player decodes audio file formats such as AIFF, WAV, ALAC, APE and FLAC. It also directly plays Direct-Stream Digital (DSD) audio files in stereo or multi-channel.

Advanced Audio Formats
With internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and bitstream output for object-based immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the UDP-205 delivers great sound for both movie soundtracks and music.

High Performance Parts
The UDP-205 is designed and built with high quality components that are intended for reaching the level of performance in both audio and video. Everything from the semiconductor chips to resistors and capacitors are carefully selected and sourced, so every player coming off the production line can meet and exceed OPPO's high specifications.


VERSATILE CONNECTIVITY

Dual HDMI Outputs
The player features two HDMI outputs – an HDMI 2.0 port for connecting to the latest UHD TVs, projectors and A/V receivers, and an HDMI 1.4 audio port for connecting to older A/V receivers. Customers with newer 4K- and HDR-capable A/V receivers can use a full HDMI 2.0 signal path, while customers with older A/V receivers can have a split A/V setup.

HDMI 2.0 Input
An HDMI 2.0 input port that supports UHD resolution is available for users to connect an external streaming device. This approach affords users the flexibility to choose from a wide range of streaming devices and easily upgrade as streaming technologies evolve, while still taking advantage of the UDP-205's audio and video processing capabilities.

Easy Integration
Integration-friendly features such as RS-232 control, back panel IR sensor and third-party IP control make the UDP-205 a great choice for any home theater system. Coaxial and optical digital audio outputs provides backward compatibility with legacy audio components.

Neither Oppo Digital UK or Oppo Digital Japan have any information yet against this model.

Likely using the latest flagship ESS ES9038PRO SABRE DAC's.

Will use this post for specification, documentation links when available.

At this time there is no silver option. Neither Japan or UK which usually offer Silver models are only showing black. Been suggested.

Sounds likely. I just hope that the difference in price between the US and UK, isn't as large. The price difference between the 203 is stupid. Must be down to the number of units estimated to sell.

Another product that Oppo Digital is about to release, the content shows how the UDP-205 might fare as advancing over the 105D. This is totally separate product from the 205 but its just the technology involved that is of interest.

Of course the details about the 205 have yet to be released.

Very nice piece of kit.

I see that it uses the same DAC as what will probably be in the 205, I like the idea of the fully balanced output stage. Stated SNR is 120 dB, although that DAC can reach 140 dB, I wonder if the 205 will provide the full 140 dB of SNR.

I also see that the volume read out is in dB, I prefer that over 0-100. I presume the volume control is still undertaken within the DAC in the digital domain?

Did you know that the DAC's in your Marantz 7702 are TI PCM1690 24-Bit, 192-kHz (113db) where as the 203 uses AKM 4458 768kHz/32-bit 8ch (115db), this was the same DAC used in Denon top of the line AVR-X7200WA. The 203 is much improved analog wise from the 103D.

MENLO PARK, California – January 31, 2017 – OPPO Digital today announced that the new Sonica DAC is ready for release. The newest entry into the OPPO family of digital audio products, Sonica DAC merges audiophile-grade performance with the latest network streaming technology.

With more and more music coming from digital sources, the DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) is one of the most important components in the playback chain. Sonica DAC improves upon the highly regarded audio performance of previous OPPO products, such as the HA-1 headphone amplifier and BDP-105 universal player, and presents an upgraded DAC chipset, the flagship ESS ES9038PRO SABRE DAC.

Hi John, this thread has gone stale.

What's the latest on the 205? Availability dates, details on the DAC's and what they can do vs the 203? Any pricing confirmation? Will the learning curve on the 203 firmware benefit the 205 firmware, hopefully there are more similarities than differences (assuming both models use the same SOC, yes) ?

I have the Sony Z9D, would I benefit from the 205 more than the 203 in your opinion? (really looking forward to DV, even with all the horsepower in this tv).
