I see a new firmware update for the 203/205 went out last week... Hopefully we'll get more updates for a while...

I think they will. Probably August, though.

Crossing fingers as my friend really wants this blu-ray player after testing mine.

I think the 203 is gone for good. The 205 should be gone for good too sometime near the end of August. By fall 2018 Oppo will give up the stage to the new actors...Panasonic, Pioneer, Sony.
Oppo will remain a talking subject, a lost memory, a wish to yesteryears, a fading song, a no more product, the vestige of retro disco, the long lost love, the lucky fortunate ones, the leader of years to come, the Kuro Elite, the plasma player, the Betamax, the queen bees.

Thanks for the link. It's nice to know that I just bought a UDP that has such excellent measurables. I guess it's a Stereophile Class A rated player for a reason.

Interesting. The problem is you can only register once with your email address. I originally registered and did get a notification back in May, but by the time I got home from work and saw the email Oppo was out of stock. Since then, the link is no longer valid nor can I reregister with that email address.

Send Oppo a email, they might be able to correct that for future availability.

I put my name on their list on May 25th and received an availability email last Monday. Ordered it that night and received it on Thursday. I was extremely lucky because I didn't check my email until about 9 that evening.

I signed up on May 27th hoping to score a 2nd 203 for my bedroom. Well just about an hour ago I got the email and purchased a brand new 203. So excited to be able to get another one before they are all gone!

Really? I also signed up on May 27th and haven't heard a word.

I hope you don't mind my asking, but did you pay the regular price for it?

Since Oppos are no longer available , what about getting a Cambridge CXUHD and there Azur 851D , would that work and what else would I need to make up for a Oppo 205 ?

Seriously none of those. The CXUHD has no analog outputs, its a digital transport that happens to have similar file/media playback, but no it doesn't have the exact same software applied to it. The CA Azur 851D is a bit like a BDP-103D with 7.1 analog outputs, but still far from a UDP-205 which is a "real" Universal Networked UHD BD player - audiophile edition!

Just pray you are lucky enough to acquire one if they are available.

The Cambridge UHD player and a really good DAC would get you close to a UDP-205, but it wouldn't be much cheaper since the DAC is going to be expensive. The analogue out from the UDP-205 is legendary.

I always thought the 203 combined with a Oppo Sonica DAC was interesting combo for achieving most of what the 205 provided DAC wise for interacting to a computer. But now look at both prices versus a 205 online.

A RME ADI-2 DAC is a interesting DAC to consider ($1099)

I'd never buy a fireworks display like that for my setup. With that one, I also figure that too much effort was spent on making it a pre-amp and a head-amp as well. All that's less money spent on the sound quality itself.

All three of my DACs are simple, without pre-amps and don't really need to be managed at all. I do turn off the Stello because it has class A analogue outputs that run really hot
