I am waiting for JVC to fix their Auto Cal software and get a sensor. 

 

I saw that disc and it does appear to work well for a friend's X7000. The nice thing is that the X9500/7500 really looks pretty good out of the box and it is takes very few clicks to get it right which is what Kris had recommended - out of the box, it was just a little dark. I took some screenshots of the menu settings but I don't remember an owners thread here so I didn't post it.

its not a disc, you just download and use patterns on a usb stick and things like a little too dark will have sorted in a flash. have you set output with a light meter ? that is definitely  must as well :) can point to affordable one if needed.

projectors particularly you cant really go on others settings. not to say your possibly not pretty close now, but it really helps things to dial in :)

 

and the RM files you would be doing regardless of the autocal :) so well worth it for the small money it costs.

At that price I expect touch screen.....:P :thumb:

 

now how did someone get there hands on one if it was just released and it will take about a week to deliver?

this time us had pre order and shipping before us. as it should be they buy for quite a bit cheaper and get 30-90 days return if not happy. where as we are treated as crash test dummies... that pay full price for the privilege !

i hate buttons full stop.  I don't even like remote controls with buttons...

 

Thats why the OPPO 105 Media control app is a bonus, no buttons to press.  How good is that?  :thumb:

 

why i I hate buttons; I wear out the volume control buttons....:emot-bang:

Hey people, if you're interested check this out, Sean has a very good intro offer here, unfortunately way to much to what I can handle right now and it's not a good time for me so I'm gonna have to miss out.

A very detailed link into the hdmi jitter reduction.

 

this endeavour is not new, with denon and marantz over many years pursuing different means to achieve. over i-link (also shared with pioneer and sony). then denon link which utilised either lan cable or later lan cable and hdmi in combination and then just via hdmi and spdif. I've owned some of these devices over the years, however I've always preferred the pure analog path. but anyways will be curious what this hdmi  jitter reduction brings ...

some notes from bob p over on avs, clarifying that the 203 and 205 are identical video wise. incase someone was wondering. as per previous oppos its really over analog and specifically 2ch analog the benefits have come, this time around they have added audio for music over hdmi 

 

"No. The 203 and 205 are identical for video picture quality.

Folks will undoubtedly report differences, so we should nip this in the bud right away. Such differences aren't "real". They most likely reflect viewer bias, but may also reflect differences not yet noticed in the configuration and setup of all the viewer's gear. 
--Bob"

 

also this prior post repeating,

 

"The 203 and 205 are identical as regards video.

The Audio HDMI output of the 205 has a new Anti-Jitter Circuit targeted at minimizing the effects of Jitter on HDMI Audio when using that socket for output. OPPO's white paper on that can be read here:

http://www.oppodigital.com/Knowledge...ProdID=UDP-205

Other than that, HDMI audio output in the 203 and 205 are also identical.

The *MAIN* reason for considering the 205 would be if you think you might want to explore the OTHER features of the 205, such as improved Analog outputs, the Headphones output, and additional types of Digital Audio Input sockets.
--Bob"

 

its interesting also that the 203 and 205 share the same firmware, with the 205 obviously addressing some parts of it that the 203 doesnt, but its a good thing in that there is greater chance of the 205 being bug free and perhaps limiting any bugs to the parts the 205 specifically address.

 

 

"If it's the same firmware, the bugs will be the same.

Correct. Plus the portions of the firmware which handle the additional features of the 205 will likely include some shiny new bugs. Collect them all! Fresh cookies await for first reports. 

The upside of course is that bug fixes benefit both players.

Heres the economics of it:

 

$1300USD OPPO 105

$2500USD MODRIGHT modifications.

$3800USD 

 

At that figure reality sets in.  Go for a dedicated CD player around $4000USD.

Now, what can you get for $4kUSD that will wipe the floor of this project that will pass a C tick?

oh i think anyone considering should definitely compare with other similar priced candidates to decide if definitely a way to go. i wouldn't suggest any otherwise. good to see someone doing a tube stage for it though :)

An important consideration for the 205 and 203

 

 

 

"Connecting the OPPO 205 Directly to a Power Amp

For those looking to try this, I have some specs for you, hot off the press:

The output impedance of the RCA Analog outs of the 205 (both multi-channel and dedicated stereo) is 100 ?.

The output impedance of the dedicated stereo XLR Analog outs of the 205 is 50 ?.

The rule of thumb is that the amp input you are going to connect to should have a minimum input impedance 10 to 15 times the output impedance of the OPPO. But be aware that the input impedance of some power amps can vary according to frequency. Quite a bit. So it is best to be conservative here

For those curious, the output impedance of the RCA Analog outs of the 203 is 200 ?.

------------------------------------

I'm still working on getting some recommendations on target Volume level for the 205, above which you can be pretty much guaranteed that dynamic range will be preserved and the noise floor suitably suppressed. But generally speaking, you want to set up so that you are using the higher end of the Volume range in the OPPO. If the gain of your amp is too much to achieve a comfortable listening level at higher Volume settings in the OPPO then you should consider putting high quality attenuators in the Analog path between the OPPO and the amp.

Again, I want to emphasize that the Analog outs of the OPPO are designed to be connected to the inputs of a pre-amp. OPPO will not be selling the 205 (much less the 203) as a substitute for a pre-amp. But if you want to try a configuration where the player is directly connected to a power amp -- as many have already done with the OPPO 105 and 105D players -- these are the considerations to bear in mind.

--Bob"

      USB Input x 3 - For media playback
      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.

      Happy to sell privately. 
    • By oztheatre
      Item: The all new native 4K Sony VPL-VW270ES 4K Cinema Projector (new 2019 model with all new lens) and Majestic Screen package is now available.
      Genuine Australian stock! This model is available in black or white.
      Groundbreaking price for native 4K cinema projection!
      RRP at $10,317 based on package with 100 inch Majestic Screen at full RRP.
      With 2 RF 3D Glasses and premium Majestic Evo4K Screen and top of the line Peerless geared projector mount! 
      Priced From: $8289 inc GST and delivery Australia wide.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Direct deposit, cards 1%.

      Extra Info: This model doesn't have the lens memory feature that the 570ES has, however it has motorised zoom, shift and focus so you could use a 235 screen, it would just take a little longer to switch between formats when required.. perhaps 30-40 seconds using the remote. Otherwise a 16:9 format screen would mean no changing sizes or messing around with the remote.
