I don't think Darbee has finalized their foray into the 4k category. I assumed that will be the horse (darbee stand alone unit) before the cart (oppo or lumagen feature). Here's the last official word

Is an RS-232 port really necessary?

It turns out there are still a lot of custom controller users out there, so it is still a useful feature.

The previous 103D model was 16.8 x 12.2 x 3.1 inches (430mm x 311mm x 79mm). But yes that picture does make the player look huge.

Its diffidently a requested feature!

As you know its most useful for sharpening soft PQ of SD/HD content where the users display doesn't benefit from latest video processing.

If the industry wants to prevent people from buying additional video processing add-ons then they need to release well mastered media. Example earlier BD release of Spartacus, versus recent remastered Spartacus BD.

4K titles as you know are not always based on 4K sources or near that, frequently we have 2K digital intermediates used. So again blame whats provided to us if this gets traction.

I personally would like to see what they come up with. If it was total shit, then folks like OPPO and Lumagen wouldn't be adding the feature to their well regarded products.

They're doing it because people want it. That doesn't make it good.

Look, I just hate artificial sharpening. I'm not one of these resolution junkies who simply MUST have every single thing they watch look so razor-sharp it'll cut your eyeball if you get too close; if a piece of content is soft then it's soft, I can live with that. I just got done watching all six seasons of 3rd Rock from the Sun on DVD upscaled to 4K. Did it look pretty? No. Did I give a shit? Again, no. It is what it is.

I see it differently, since both companies strive to provide the best in both markets and have reputations in industry that back it up. Though they are both in the business to make a profit, I don't think they would risk their reputation just to grab a buck by providing a feature that would bring their overall performance down.

I understand it when you say you don't like anything that falls into the sharpening category, but to demean both companies because they see a value (in performance) in providing it...we can agree to disagree.

OPPO UDP-203 4K Blu-ray Player Breaks Cover at CEDIA - By Vincent Teoh 16 September 2016, 6:30 pm BST

And so with the industry marching relentlessly towards a new video age comprising 4K UHD (ultra high-definition) and HDR (high dynamic range), AV fans began to await the arrival of an Ultra HD Blu-ray player from the company. After initially teasing a photo of its forthcoming 4K disc spinner on Twitter a few months ago, OPPO has this week shown its new UDP-203 4K BD player to select journalists in a closed-door preview at the CEDIA 2016 expo in Dallas.

Few details are known about the OPPO UDP203, but going by photos and tweets from Chris Heinonen, editor of Reference Home Theater, the player will feature an archetypal OPPO design with a central disc loader and brushed metallic front, as well as dual HDMI outputs for separate video and audio connections, so owners with legacy non-HDCP 2.2-compliant AV receiver or home theatre system can continue using their existing equipment without having to upgrade.

Other titbits gleaned by Heinonen at CEDIA regarding the OPPO 203 included 5Ghz Wifi capability, absence of Darbee, and a launch price of only $499 which seemed surprisingly keen, given that the brand’s players generally sell between the £500 and £1,000 mark in the UK. Dolby Vision (DV) support wasn’t explicitly mentioned, but many will be hoping that there’s a DV-compatible chipset onboard, and OPPO is merely waiting for certification. Availability is slated for before the end of the year, so we’ve put the OPPO UDP-203 straight on top of our Christmas wishlist.

BTW there is a sign up page at Oppo Digital now.

Go to http://www.oppodigital.com/uhd/



Yes the image from Twitter was hard to see what the player looks likes. As you can see its no longer a plastic area running the length of the player. The display is under the loader. The eject/open tray button is quite visible. Yes that is a USB port in the front.

This is great news! looking to upgrade from my BDP-S5000ES from Christmas to March next year. What I'm looking for is UHD player with 7.1 Analogue outputs (until I upgrade my amp) and good streaming capabilities. Currently I've ripped all my HD-DVD's and some Blu's to MKV files, so want a player to be able to play the HD Audio from these from my NAS. Could the 103 do this successfully?

This looks very much like the 103, so presumably has a switched mode PSU rather than a linear with toroidal transformer

My Christmas present may be here, but I really don't need the 4K TV, yet, so I might wait-and-see on the player. I need more and 4K better discs out, too, especially if this Dolby Vision thing is going to happen.

The fan might be on the bottom. This unit appears to be raised higher than previous models.

Same my HDTV 1080p, UHD player mini is a great price responsible. It's very important Atmos and DTS-X for me. UHD 4K disc is best highest bitrate.

I don't mind about Dobly Vision. I think HDR10 is a well working.
