Re: Ultra HD Blu-ray Players and Discs Primed to be Available Soon

I will also be buying UHD disc as long as they come with a Blu ray and or DVD. I do not plan on getting a player for a few years as I keep my stuff until it dies. I have a first gen Blu ray player and it's so slow.

My DVD players have better audio specs so i'm hoping Oppo's UHD player will replace everything one time.

+1, Oppo all the way! It's icing on the cake that they are also a sponsor here. Maybe they would put one up for one of our giveaway contests! That would be a great way for them announce! And I'm sure nobody here would complain .

+2 on the Oppo. I decided to get one a few weeks ago, but hit the brakes hard when I realized it would soon be outdated as soon as I'm ready to go 4K. I even built my in wall AV rack system with a space specially for a 103D. It will sit empty til they come out with some new players.

I wonder if they will still offer the Darbee in them or if Darbee has or will be updating their product also, maybe it will even be better.

As the Sony 40ES projector just went on sale again and my Seymour AV screen should be ready soon, it's a bummer I'll have to wait til maybe 2017 to complete they system with an Oppo, but I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Same here. I very much want the 105D but I can't bring myself to buy it right now since I just know that they'll be releasing a new model in the near future. I don't expect them to be released right away but by early 2017 I'd hope they could have something.

My uncle says to just buy the 105D so I can enjoy the great audio it gives and just sell later but thats one tough pill to swallow.

Not only needing new UHD BD player, but we need new AVR with 2.2 HDMI and of course UHD OLED TV. Only my speakers are semi useable, as Atmos requires height or ceiling speakers!!!

I love the OLED's too, but I'm not sure how they can properly integrate HDR with that technology, and HDR is one of the greatest benefits of UHD.

It's integrated...the vast differentiation between limitless blacks and brights makes it work quite well. It also has been integrated on some projectors (note, they can't run in eco mode).

LCDs have a big advantage because of such high peak brightness capabilities, but...BUT.... one has to wonder about images that are simply too bright or punctuated.

Re: Ultra HD Blu-ray Players and Discs Primed to be Available Soon

Me too though I have a pretty Oppo 105...thought it was last Disc player I'd ever buy....will this madness never end??? Doubt it!

I was just going to spend $2.5K to get the ModWright Mod on that player that's suppose to be quite an upgrade....but now whet yet a another format coming out a new player? wish they could charge just to modify the 105...???

Cheers!
