    I had borrowed an Arcam BDP300 and I was about to pull the trigger and buy it until I saw these taster pics.

    Very interested in the possible fan-less operation, and the input connections to use the unit as a DAC coupled with all the other stuff that the BDP300 does not do and will not likely do in the near future, I am going to hold off a little longer.

    Looking forward to hearing more about the new Oppo players

    i was waiting for the news on the new oppo players, ive held off buying a 93, but im going to have to wait even longer whilst they develop a multi region kit for this player before i buy.

    this seems to getting released in the U.S at christmas time.

    New or Enhanced BDP-103/105 Shared Features:

    Latest generation QDEO which supports 4K upscaling
    2x2 HDMI. Two HDMI inputs; Two HDMI outputs.
    The Front HDMI input supports MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) which allows some of the newer smartphones to be connected direct to the player and transmits the phones screen to the television. This also allows for ROKU Stick support.
    Newest Netflix interface which supports 1080p video, multi-channel audio, subtitle and alternative language selection, and Family Interface
    Gracenote for looking up media information such as album art, artist, album, and track information for your CD, SACD, and user generated media
    Backlit Eject buttons. No more thumbing around in the dark.
    No more analog video. There is a "DIAG" port, but this is to only see the OPPO UI when there is no media playback. So for those of you who use a small monitor for media playback, you will need to upgrade to a DVI/HDMI capable display.

    New BDP-105 Only Features:

    Fanless (unlike the BDP-95)
    Headphone Amplifier
    Asynchronous USB DAC
    Optical and Digital Coaxial Inputs
    Properly oriented XLR outputs

    The 93 had a prerelease order in Oct/Nov, maybe they will do that again.

    Im interested in these, but also the new Marantz UD5007.

    It won't do any good since there is no content and it will upscale HD blu-ray to a near look of the 4K resolution.
    I was so excited and planning to get one but I've read an article (what is 4K) saying the capacity of the Blu-ray Disc can't handle the 4k,if that's true and 4K requires a new format then why not stick with the 93/95 models ?

    Simply put, other makers such as Sony are outputting 4k upscaling Blu-ray players and other makers are following suit. Oppo is a player in the Blu-Ray player market and would have fallen behind if it doesn't react to the new technology, whether this particular step is of any use to you is neither here nor there, it's like when they added 3D to the 93/95 over the older 83's, some wanted 3D many didn't but if Oppo didn't add the feature they would have been well behind the rest... This is progress and it's normal I would think. :)

    Your right,but if the 4K requires anew format (GOD FORBID) then we could be seeing the ending of the Blu-ray (GOD FORBID) it will be like the DVD,though some might like the idea of downloading the movie,I on the other hand prefer Disc's and collector's edition's specially the felling when I enter my A/V room and look at the shelve's with all the movie's on them :D , .
    I've read that some companies and Sony are working on 1TB Blu-ray disc for a 4K resolution,if that's done then all's well.

    I think it will be a very long time before mass market commercial content is offered in a "DCI" like consumer format encompassing a film like colour gamut and advances in bit rate. Not least because of studio paranoia about content protection and market size for such products.

    4K resolution is used in commercial DCI theatres due to the size of image required relative to seating distance. Irrespective of the benefit of 4K resolution to the average consumer display/viewing distance the "consumer technology" push is deigned to create churn i.e. new display, new player, new avr etc. It's probably also worth establishing how much benefit is purely resolution related compared to other things that may happen in terms of image processing in a 4k product. Resolution in isolation is often difficult to assess and the result is a combination of other changes are assumed to be due to resolution.

    In the art of spec chasing it's important to have a tick in the box because many consumers have no idea why just that feature x is something that's a "must have".

    rather than 4K upscaling Marvell [Qdeo] should have invested in better upscaling to 1080p. More accurate scaling with minimal edge enhancement/ringing.

    I seem to remember during the last format war that lots of people reckoned Blu-ray would die quickly because people would be downloading movies or buying them on cheap flash drives...

    Neither has really happened, and neither is showing any sign of happening soon, still....

    Personally I couldn't be less excited about 4K in the home as even on a 60" screen which is still very big, Blu-ray looks stunning. Homes with 4K projectors and huge screens are a niche market, and given the quality of over the air HD streams, it will be a long time before we get broadcast 4K.

    I don't think 4K is something that's going to be high on the list of most people buying one of these...

    Agreed, the downloaded movies for me just don't have the quality, the bit rate of them is not close to a blu and often the audio is a poor lossy version so the convenience is there but if I want quality (and I do) then the disc based format is the only one and I doubt they want to improve the quality of the downloaded ones either as at least in the UK our broadband is simply not up to it, I use Virgin (60mb) and at times it can be fast but not for this and fair usage policies get in the way too...

    As an example I streamed a movie on the Apple TV a while ago and there were two versions to pick from, HD and standard, I chose and paid more for the HD version and was surprised to see the amp go to Pro-logic as the audio layer was only stereo for my HD movie... later I checked and the SD version of the same movie came with a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio layer (doh!) I mentioned it to Apple and they told me that have zero control on the content of the media this is done solely by the studios and this is the formats they had chosen, I guess it was done to keep the size of the HD movie file down but it's things like this that hold back this sort of thing... The only high quality movie files I have played have been my own discs that I ripped myself so i will stick with the Blu's for now.

    PS I cant see the TV stations wanting to switch to 4k for a long time, they are still covering the cost for the move to HD :blush:

    They don't have the bandwidth anyway. You'll need to wait a long time to see 4K content distributed via physical media, but you'd have to wait an extremely longer period before you'll ever get 4K TV.

    There's been some recent mutterings about 4K just being a fad thing and 8K more likely to be the standard by the time everyone has worked out a means by which to make it viable.

    OK, so if you already own a £7K 4K capable panel or went out and bought a 4K PJ then you may as well make the most of it, but if you own neither then it is very unlikely you'll ever need a BD player with 4K upscaling and 4K content will never be distributed on Blu-ray anyway.

    Indeed, Super Hi-Vision or nothing for me :laugh:

    I can understand the people with the nice 4K projectors wanting the content but as said before its a fairly small market for everything to change for?

    That said though I really enjoyed seeing Prometheus in the theatre with a Sony 4K projector ( the presentation was better than the movie! :eek: ) and IMHO was better looking than TDKR was in the iMax theatre a couple of weeks later but I think I was a little too close at iMax... I think the source file they would have been playing at Prometheus would have been a large percentage of the image quality and I doubt it was upscaled from 1080p ;)

    All I remember was my mate and I talking more of the stunning image than the movie itself(with Prometheus), going to seen Dredd tomorrow in another 4k (newly upgraded) theatre so I am hoping for more of the same :)

    But the article I read on the forum (What is 4k ?) said that 4K requires a lot of space do to the resolution and sound quality that the capacity of the Blu-ray can't handle,that is why it will be either downloaded of 1TB Blu-ray disc Sony and other companies working on.
    And if that happens everyone will download for free via torrent's,and to my knowledge 4k requires huge screen's to view it.

    might be worth a look at nearer the time , it would need to be a £1000 better than my 95

    How long do you think it takes to download 1TB of data? It is now possible to distribute 1TB files online, but download speeds are restricted by bandwidth. Who wants to dedicate their bandwidth allocation to continually downloading 1TB files and how many actually have speeds that make this a credible solution? Not to mention what will happen if everyone starts transferring 1TB files simultaneously. The internet would simply grind to a halt. Even if you've the fastest internet connection available in the UK, it would take you days to download 1TB. The majority of internet users in this country have less than 5Mb to play with.

    If on a disc it will not be Blu-ray. Forget about your existing player ever being capable of playing back 4K discs.


    4K projectors in cinemas use banks of hard drives to stream the data to the projector. You'd need a similar arrangement at home to both store and stream such files to your display. Even if you download these titles, where are you going to store them all? If you're equating a 4K film to 1TB of data then you are talking in the region of £60 - 80 per film. This would cover the cost of one drive needed to store each title on.

    Then why did they make it in the first place :mad: ?!! if they knew it's gonna cost more?
    I totally agree with what you said and I don't see any problems with the blu-ray,I also think the upscale is useless.

    To put some context around data size a DCI 4k 3 hour feature with additional prerequisite cinema material (20 minutes preamble plus some other stuff) needs about 380Gb at max bit rate. That includes 16 channels of 48K uncompressed audio. At min DCI bitrate that drops to around 123Gb.

    That is still 5 to 20 times greater than current Blu-ray titles. Even if the smaller size becomes the standard, you'd still only be able to fit less than 7 titles onto a 1TB hard drive. Unless the studios selling 4K content are willing to subsidise the cost of hard drive storage then I cannot see this catching on? There's also no disc type media currently capable of holding more than Blu-ray can hold and the max is currently 50GB with a potentiakl for 200GB, but only if they start making 8 layer BD media. The industry can't even provide BD quality downloads let alone 4K quality so how are they going to distribute 4K content?

    A raw 4K (4096 x 2160), 24fps, 16-bit file needs 405 Megabytes per second- 24.3 Gigabytes per minute – 1.46 Terabytes per hour.

    The Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) specifications use a maximum of 250 Mbits/sec for JPEG2000 compressed 4K and this is set to double to 500 Mbits/sec within the next five years.

    At the highest bitrate of 250 Mbit/sec, a two-hour 4k film would be 225GB for the image only, excluding audio or sub pictures.

    Variable bit rate compression is used for distribution to cinemas, but to what extent depends on the content of the film.

    At a Sony event in Tokyo, Sony demoed The Amazing Spider-Man in 4K using the Sony VPL-VW1000ES projector. The two and a half minute uncompressed trailer weighed in at 500GB.

    Three hours of raw 4K video takes up 3.16TB, this would be 212 standard 25GB Blu-rays – Again the quality of image and amount of Blu-rays used would ultimately come down to the amount of compression applied.

    Even if you buy a BD player with 4K upscaling, it will not be capable of playing a 4K disc. THere's no standard for 4K content yet so the player may not even be compatible with downloaded files??? You are buying a 4K scaler, not a native 4K player and it is doubtful that new BD players will play Blu-ray titles any better than the models they replace. Current Blu-ray tech can physically support up to eight layers – the original specification allowed for 200GB! Whether anyone will want to is a different story, but it shouldn't be difficult to go to four layers. Even this would require a new player and you'd still not get a entire film on one disc.

    Yes it is but at least the numbers more accurately reflects the data requirements of 4k content used in DCI.

    The numbers I quoted are from the current DCI specification.

    The point of my post was "To put some context around data size" only.

    Nah, just i asked on this section for advice on a new player and no one replied to my questions regarding upscaling to 4k. I almost bought the 93, but asked if i should wait to see if oppo released a newer player. Lowe and behold...

    okay :)


    I assume that you are aware that 4K is only of use if you've a 4K display or PJ at your disposal?


    btw I once saw Lowe and Behold perform live at Glastonbury.

    Funny thing is, the Marvell chip in the 93 is fully capable of up-scaling to 4k, i guess Oppo weren't interested at the time.
