I figured that Oppo UDP-205 will be like the 1080p model 105 of 2 years.

I wonder if they will improve the video issue on the 205 that they have on the 203 or the video to be the same. If they have fixed the Issue with the Video and make it as good or better than the Panasonic UB900 it might be worth buying it.

Video is usually identical on Oppo releases. It just ups the analogue stage for the xx5 releases

3 things to consider Blackman ; do  you want to pay over the odds for a universal sacd ;dvd audio player with the oppo or [ if you have any of these audio types] just buy a hard drive and plug it into a Panasonic [ that can play dsd etc files anyway ] The pana models also have 4k Netflix ; oppo left this out unlike in the past..

4K NETFLIX, 4K YouTube(TENTATIVE) Playback yes*3*5
4K NETFLIX with HDR, 4K Amazon(TENTATIVE) yes
 

and the new ub400 loses the fancy analog stage to be a digital transport ..similarly like the oppo 203 only probably cheaper

Other factor is dolby vision ; oppo will have it ; Panasonic has HDR10 instead ..

4 K Netflix is a Joke for our internet speeds. We will have NBN in 3 Months but our node is 1200 M away and we will get no speed at that distances.

Fair enough ; if you don't want dsd or dvd-a playback then you can buy a motza of uhd discs for the difference B)

The UDP-205 specs were published today:-

 

https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-udp-205/

 

U.S. price: $1,299. On first look I very much like what I see except for the fact that it does not seem to include any native streaming apps such as TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora etc. Also, I can't find any reference to Airplay which is what I currently use to redirect Pandora and Spotify from the iPad to my Cambridge CXN without needing to use extra hardware such as Chromecast or Apple TV.

Looks like Oppo has lost the PQ processing king crown... seems odd.

This and the whole beta release of the 203 makes you wonder if Panasonic poached some of Oppo's tech staff.

Not so odd when you appreciate Panasonic has had a close association with Hollywood since they started PHL labs[ Panasonic Hollywood labs ] j ; a prime driver for 3d back in the day :cool: No off the shelf SOC;s for Pana ..

The oppo 205 is a curious item these days ; fancy ess dacs and analog stage and fancy low jitter clocked hdmi output - that's usually added by after market operators like the ones on Pete's signature mod :o   Of course only the 1 solution for dolby atmos; dts-x with these outputs ; but a lot of redundancy here ..

This means the second hdmi out is audio only ; not video/audio as previous ..

Specs are all well and good...BUT will it actually work as "advertised"????    I dont hold out much hope.

Users of the 203 are "STILL" waiting for the magical "Fix" to make their Oppo 203 work as "advertised"    ....I have had the 203 from the word go, and it is still plagued with "glitches"

 

UB900 on the other hand just "Works"..

the new 205 apparently with a ship due of april 28th in the us,

 

though i dont think i will bite, not with the sour taste still lingering from the last time.

 

I think will wait to see feedback and then see.

 

not a hard decision with the pana 900 uhd player that has been absolutely faultless on uhd for good 3 months now and all the movies have thrown at it ....

Who wants to guess the Australian retail price?  If it was simply about exchange rate then $1,755 would be about right if the $AUS was trading at US-74 cents. But my guess is $1,999 because the Internationals love to gouge the Australian market whenever possible.

      This tv/monitor is an early iteration of 4k (no HDR). It supports 4k at 30hz only.
      It also does 124hz at 1080p so great as a large gaming monitor with low input latency.
      It's an 'in between' size so if you've got a medium room it will likely work well for you.
      Local Pickup only.

      Extra Details below and from the Loewe website: https://ww2.loewe.tv/au/bild/loewe-reference
       
      Loewe is acknowledged as a specialist manufacturer and this is their top television model, the Reference, in a 55” size model. It is hand made in Germany with features that are not found on standard sets.
       
      Effortless Perfection.
      The new Loewe Reference sets exceptionally high standards. An achievement made possible by a perfectly synchronised performance: A crystal-clear Ultra-HD picture combines with outstanding quality sound from Loewe's unique integrated soundbar. A timeless modernist design meets ultimate convenience, thanks to the integrated hard disk recorder and Bluetooth audio streaming.
       
      Ultra High Definition ... for the best picture.
      The UHD display is combined with Loewe's unique glass high contrast filter panel, delivering even richer colours and deeper blacks - for a truly special picture. For TV broadcast signals that do not yet meet the UHD standard Loewe's up-scaling algorithm converts from the currently available Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a seamless process ensuring visibly enhanced details and the clarity of Ultra HD 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
       
      Loewe 3D Active Shutter ... for even more depth.
      From outer space to jungles or oceans … Sometimes, you want to truly immerse yourself in the action unfolding on your screen. Loewe's 3D Active Shutter technology brings images alive with vibrant detail - and not just for 3D content. Algorithms work invisibly behind the scenes - calculating which picture content should appear at the front and back - to transform even 2D content into an impressive three-dimensional home cinema experience.
       
      High-resolution art ... with the LUMAS app.
      The new LUMAS Gallery app takes art into the digital dimension - and opens up new horizons. It allows you to enjoy selected works of art by internationally renowned artists - such as the Cuba series by the Stuttgart-based photographer Werner Pawlok - in high-resolution Ultra HD quality on your television screen. The LUMAS TV app is available on the new Loewe Reference TV home screen, so you can start selecting pictures straight away - using the Loewe remote control. Browse photographs, graphics, illustrations, digital art or paintings. When you find a picture that appeals, you can display it as a fixed image (for a maximum of 24 hours) or enjoy as part of a slide show.
       
      Quality Sound
      The Loewe Reference has a sound quality to rival even high-end hi-fi and home cinema systems: tangible bass, vivid middle, precise highs and an exceptionally wide dynamic range – the traditional hallmarks of Loewe Sound. The Loewe Reference sets particularly high standards. An integrated soundbar with eight speakers generates crystal-clear sound with a rich 120 watts of music output. In combination with the specially designed bass reflex box and integrated 5.1 audio decoder with Dolby Digital and DTS, the result is an impressive home cinema … and a perfect home concert hall. The Loewe Reference's cinema surround mode conveys amazingly authentic surround sound. At the touch of a button, it also allows you to switch between film and music mode. Special algorithms calculate the optimal overall sound setup for each situation: as powerful as possible while retaining sensitivity – ideal for cinema buffs and music fans.
       
      Loewe Mobile Recording ... any time, any place.
      You're stuck in traffic or can't get away from a meeting...you won't make it home in time for your favorite programme. You're out with friends...and you suddenly realise your weekly drama is about to start. The Loewe Reference takes the stress out of situations such as these. Loewe Mobile recording allows you to easily record programmes on the integrated Loewe DR+ 1 TB hard disk, even if you don't happen to be at home. Leaving you free to enjoy your favorite programmes at a more convenient time! All you need is a smartphone and an Internet connection. Simply open the new free Loewe Smart Assist app, select the program from the programme guide and press 'record'... Your Loewe TV will then take care of the rest. When you get back home, you can even watch your recorded programmes on your patio, or tucked up in bed using a tablet computer.
