JJ- Someone had some refurbish BDP-95's for around 800.00 bucks not too long ago - I think it was Crutchfield or Music Direct if I'm not mistaken. Full warranty too.

Tempt not a desperate man! That would be an amazing price as BDP-93 prices have been rising due to the 93/95's being about the last design before the AACS HDMI Final Adopter Agreement (Analog Sunrise) where it still offers HD over Component Video (103/105 do not even have Component or any other Analog Video Outputs), Cinnavia free, and ISO Support provided the past few FW Updates were not performed.

JJ- I noticed those changes regarding the 105 and was not a fan (thought about "upgrading" but I don't think it's an upgrade at all except for the 4k ability) so I stuck with the 95. I happen to like the component hookup over the HDMI and besides that, my Aragon Pre/Pro does not have HDMI.
The 105 is a nice piece (great review in this months Home Theater Mag) but I still say that the 95 is the best piece OPPO has.

Re: Welcome OPPO Digital as a forum sponsor!

My 103 died last night. I've had an OPPO 103 for right at 4 years. It is in my HT and never moved and there are no kids in the house so it is well cared-for. I average about two movies a week on it, which I would think isn't a lot. But last night the transport apparently died in the middle of a BR Movie. It says there is no disk in the player when there is. I've put differing BRD, DVDs, and Red Book CDs in and the main menu says "reading disk" for a split second then says No Disk where the Disk icon is. Is 4-years the life expectancy of these relatively high-end systems? On the OPPO site I see nothing that indicates how I can get them repaired out of the 2-year warranty either. I'm extremely disappointed in a product I really liked up until now. Just a heads-up for those considering the product and a question on if Oppo repairs them. I'm considering either a Sony or Samsung at this point. Or ripping to my NAS and not even using a player.

Re: Welcome OPPO Digital as a forum sponsor!

Don't get me wrong. I think they are a great value for the money unless there is a mechanical design weakness. I'm only questioning the MTBF aspect. , I have a Thorens turntable from the mid 70s. It isn't like I'm hard on equipment. I'll see how they treat me when I contact them today. That will really tell the tale.

Talked to OPPO. They say it's still under warranty where they will repair it at no charge. It would have been $79 otherwise which is reasonable for out of warranty service. Still not happy it broke, but at this point, I'm impressed with the customer service effort. Thanks OPPO!
