OPPO BDP-103D

"It's like lifting a veil." Darbee's Visual Presence™ technology establishes a fundamental breakthrough for image realism. By embedding stereoscopic depth information generated from a patented human-vision-based model into 2D or 3D video, it provides greater clarity and increases the perception of depth resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience. The amount of processing is adjustable, allowing you to customise the visual enhancement to your particular taste. More information about Darbee's Visual Presence™ technology can be found here.

Enhanced Video Quality

  • 4K Up-scaling - Enhance the home theatre experience with four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p by up-scaling all video sources to 4K (3840 x 2160) output resolution

  • DVD Up-Conversion - Per-pixel motion-adaptive de-interlacing and advanced scaling transform the standard definition image on DVDs to high definition output on your TV.

  • Full HD 1080p Output - The BDP-103D features user selectable video output resolutions, including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 4K.

  • True 24p™ Video - Many Blu-ray Discs are recorded at 24 frames per second, the same frame rate as the original movie's theatrical release. The BDP-103D can faithfully redeliver the original frames using 1080p 24Hz output (compatible display required) for smoother motion and a flicker-free, film-like home theater experience. It can also restore the original 24 frames per second progressive-scan video from well-authored DVDs and output 1080p 24Hz.

  • Source Direct Mode - For users who wish to use an external video processor, the BDP-103D offers a "Source Direct" mode. The original audio/video content on the discs is sent out with no additional processing or alteration.

  • Multiple Zoom Modes - The BDP-103D supports multiple levels of aspect ratio control and image zooming. Users can watch a movie in its original aspect ratio, fit to the full screen, or zoom in to remove the black bars on some titles.

  • Vertical Stretch Mode - For customers with a 2.35:1 CIH (Constant Image Height) display system, the player's zoom options include a vertical stretch mode to work nicely with an anamorphic lens. A unique subtitle shift feature allows the user to move the subtitle up and down, making it possible to see all subtitle text when using a 2.35:1 CIH display.

  • Advanced Picture Control - Users can have fine control of brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, sharpness, noise reduction, color and contrast enhancements. The player can remember and apply three custom picture control modes to suit a variety of viewing conditions and content types.

High Fidelity Audio

  • Dolby® TrueHD - Dolby TrueHD delivers lossless studio master quality audio designed specifically for high definition entertainment. The BDP-103D supports bit-stream output of Dolby TrueHD via its HDMI 1.4a output. It can also internally decode Dolby TrueHD into LPCM and output via HDMI or the 7.1ch analogue audio output terminals. Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus audio formats are also supported

  • DTS-HD Master Audio™- DTS-HD Master Audio delivers an auditory experience that matches the lifelike images of high-definition video with up to 7.1 channels that are bit-for-bit identical to the studio master. The BDP-103D supports bit-stream output of DTS-HD Master Audio. It can also internally decode DTS-HD Master Audio and output via HDMI or the 7.1ch analog audio output terminals. (DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and DTS Digital Surround are also supported.)

  • 7.1-Channel Analogue Output - Individual analog 7.1-channel surround outputs are ideal to connect to a 7.1-channel or 5.1-channel surround sound system. The BDP-103D delivers an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience. For users with stereo speakers, the 7.1-channel analogue output can be configured to a stereo down-mix mode.
  • Digital Optical and Coaxial Outputs- For simple and easy connection to more traditional A/V receivers, the BDP-103D features both optical and coaxial outputs for digital audio.
  • Rigid Chassis Construction - Built around a steel chassis, aluminium faceplate, and center-mounted disc loader, the BDP-103D is designed to impress as well as to provide a stable base for the highest quality reproduction of your favorite media.

Methinks I’ll stick with the separate darblett as I have always found individual units more versatile than a single.

Available at end of Oct @ opposhop for 1 ; wont get 1 just yet though :pinch:

Paul,

We have confirmed the issues that you have observed and we also do not notice the same errors when going through a dedicated DarbeeDarblet. Our engineers will be investigating the errors closely and will look to resolve them through a future firmware release.

Best Regards,

Customer Service

I will be buying my new display (saving money in cash) just before christmas. I will be purchasing a Hecto 100 inch Laser TV. I have been now involved in adjusting these screens for two people that have them, they are a pain to get right and the only way to get the correct distance from the bottom of the screen to the top of the cabinet where the Hecto sits on (370mm) is to have adjustable short legs on the cabinet.

So, I think since I will be buying a reasonably good display, I may as well go the full hog and buy one of these Oppo 103D. I will be running 1 HDMI to the Hecto and the second HDMI from the Oppo to my Onkyo 875 processor.

How much is a separate darbee?

$359 Aus

The reason I am sticking with the remote Darblett is simple. As one can see from my signature I run a fair number of items so my Darblett hangs off the output from the DVDO and can be applied to any connected item. Much more versatile than running everything through a 103D

Bear in mind, if you run a separate Darbee, AVS users have reported they can't get 4k even if the player / TV has 4k capability. It may not affect everyone, but just FYI.

That's the thing - choice for different situations is important ;because there's so much anecdotal evidence that people appreciate the db with a projector more than a panel and a hdpvr or 2 can be plugged into the oppo ;its an easy choice for me :) . One less box and oppo's 2nd to none firmware upgrades with the the upgradeable ffpg darbee processing the standalone doesn't have is enough for me :thumbsup:

Can someone please explain to me the difference's between the basic change kit or the pro kit to make the new Darbee 103D region free. What's the +'s and -'s of both the kits.

I justchecked the Oppo shops web site and it seems these players will be available either the 1st of November (this Friday) or Monday the 4th.

The standard kit requires several keystrokes and a restart. The pro kit will start in the selected region with a single key - makes it easier to integrate into a universal remote.

Found this site interesting. Look for the Darbee Edition BDP 103D table of contents.

I've also download the manual for the 103D. (Yes the 103D not the 103)

Suss out the settings check list

My pro chip requires 3 button operations now as opposed to the original single button for region change.

      There is lots of sites with 4K content in many shapes or forms but not many allow you to look at entire list in user friendly manner so I decided to create our own list with complete collection available within 1 page, I plan to update it once a week (if time allow) but if someone is willing to help from mods (due to post update restrictions) I would definitely appreciate it...
      All artworks (pictures) are taken from www.blu-ray.com and are hyperlinked, there are other sites I could take it from but BR seems to be most updated, I only took 1 artwork per title even if there might be more from each, if you are unsure about the title name from the picture just hoover with your mouse over it and it'll pop up or just click on it and it'll open directly on blu-ray.com site
      Whole list is in alphabetical order (sort of according to BR page ) so if you can't find certain title please have a look under different name e.g. Jason Bourne might be under "B" but also under "J" as some of them where released under different name, same applies for prefixes e.g. "the" etc.
      I don't know what's the standard screen resolution these days so if you'd like to widen it with more artworks within one row just let me know and I will rebuild it...       
      It took some time to build it and format it so hopefully it'll be helpful to those interested, enjoy

      I've been mulling over this issue for a while now, and thought I'd ask you guys (and girls) if you had any answers for me. I've also done a search and can't find any threads specifically discussing the issue of variable 4K quality on different platforms.
      The main question, there will be others later, is... why does 4K on You Tube look so much cleaner and precise than 4K presentations on all other platforms?  If I watch something in (supposed) 4K on You Tube it is always as I would expect 4K to look, whereas 4K on Netflix, Amazon, Stan and VUDU is good, but doesn't have the same (almost) jaw dropping clarity of a You Tube video.
      Before we go any further, here is the gear I use (all cables are good, and high speed NBN of consistent 95mbs):
      Hisense 75N7
      Yamaha 3060
      Apple TV 4K
      Nvidia Shield
      All devices are connected via the 3060
      Other questions I just can't find answers to:
      1. The Yamaha 3060's recent update included Dolby Vision, but the Hisense isn't compatible. The ATV sends Dolby Vision instead of HDR to the amp when watching Netflix. Does this make any difference? Can it be changed if needed?
      2. If this is causing an issue, is there a way to only send HDR from the amp to the Hisense?
      3. How do I ensure that I am allowing all video to pass through to the TV to allow it to do the upscaling, as I believe the Hisense is capable of doing a better job?
      4. When I visit a You Tube channel which supposedly is showing HDR content, is it actually in HDR or just brighter 4K? The TV doesn't register a HDR signal from You Tube. This is when trying on both media players. The TV does receive HDR signal from other platforms on both the Shield and ATV.
      Thanks for any help. Oh, and before anyone whinges that I've posted this on a couple of forums...I just can't find answers to these questions, so I'm covering all knowledge bases.
      Cheers

      Item: Sony VPL-VW500ES Projector
      Location: Canberra
      Price: $4,250 ONO ($13,999 RRP)
      Item Condition: Excellent condition
      Reason for selling: Change to later model
      Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer
      Extra Info: This fantastic true 4K projector has very low hours (~400) and has been always mounted in a dedicated room, used for movies only.  Currently running from an Oppo BDP-103 - it's as good as new.
      It just had a new genuine Sony lamp fitted.
      It will be packed and shipped in it's original box via courier of your choice if not local.
       
      EDIT: Price drop to $4250.  This really is a bargain for such a good projector...

      Hey everyone,
       
      Kind of new to the whole UHD thing (but loving it so far) and am wanting to get feedback from those who have done it. 
       
      I’ve read that you’re able to play UHD movies ordered from overseas and they’ll play here in Australia as the UHD discs are essentially region free. 
      Is this true? Does anybody have any experience with having ordered UHDs from overseas (specifically America via Amazon etc) and can confirm it works?
       
      And has anybody had the opposite? Where they’ve ordered UHDs from overseas and they haven’t worked? 
       
      I’m aware the extra regular blu-ray dis that comes with most releases probably won’t work - it’s the UHD stuff I’m after. 
       
      Thanks in in advance for your help everyone! Appreciate it ?
