I own a BDP-95 and couldn't be happier. The video is pure and the audio is to die for. I replaced some very expensive separates in my audio section when I bought the OPPO and think it sounds terrific - especially the SACD. Plus, what it did for my DVD collection with it's up-converting technology was a nice surprise.
Quality product for sure.
Hello,
The BDP-95 is a truly world class product. While I adore my BDP-83 and BDP-93, I really lament not getting a 95.
Best,
JJ

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.

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.

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!

Good to hear your problem will be resolved
