Oppo's new flagship player, the BDP-105, replaces the widely acclaimed BDP-95. It offers even better picture and sound — quite an accomplishment since the BDP-95 was an overachiever that looked and sounded better than players costing much more. But what makes the BDP-105 the new must-have component for audiophiles is its array of digital inputs. Besides letting you enjoy your disc collection like never before, you can connect other digital sources to this player and enjoy its extraordinary sound quality. And with 4K upscaling, the BDP-105 is prepared for the next revolution in picture quality. There isn't another player we know of with this kind of versatility.
Designed for audiophiles and videophiles, the BDP-105 will make the most of virtually any disc you throw at it. 3D and standard Blu-ray movies look amazing. 2D Blu-ray discs and DVDs can even go three-dimensional thanks to the BDP-105's new 2D-to-3D conversion. Movie soundtracks will reach new heights as this player delivers the latest audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio™ with crystal-clear detail. Music will sound fresh and new, especially if you have high-res stereo and multichannel DVD-Audio and SACD discs, which will truly sparkle with the BDP-105.
"If ever a product deserved to be considered the Swiss Army knife of digital media playback, the BDP-105 is the one. Whether you choose it for multi-format disc playback, for network-streaming capabilities, or to use as a DAC at the heart of a computer-audio system, the BDP-105 will consistently serve up levels of sonic refinement and sophistication that belie its modest price. Enthusiastically recommended."
— From Chris Martens' review in The Absolute Sound, April, 2013
Thought your A/V receiver was the centerpiece of your home theater? Think again. With several exciting upgrades, the BDP-105 is poised to become a powerful multimedia hub for all your digital sources. With newly added dual HDMI inputs as well as optical and coaxial digital inputs, you can run gaming consoles, network streaming devices like Apple TV®, and other digital sources through the BDP-105 for truly brilliant picture and sound. The front-panel HDMI input doubles as a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) input for use with compatible smartphones and tablets, so you can send photos, videos and music from your mobile device to your home theater.
What else is new with Oppo's latest flagship player? It can transform your computer into an audiophile-grade component. Just plug it into the BDP-105's asynchronous USB DAC to minimize jitter and squeeze every ounce of detail from your uncompressed music files, for sound quality that rivals any CD and transport combination. You can even listen through the '105's dedicated headphone amplifier, for DAC and headphone amp performance that by itself would make this player worth the price. Of course, there are tons more features that make the BDP-105 a genuine bargain.
Oppo's flagship player is a brilliant choice for serious home theaters that include a large flat-panel TV or projector. Those displays really benefit from a top-notch video source that lets them show their stuff. The BDP-105 features some of the latest and most advanced video circuitry available, like Marvell's latest Qdeo™ processor, the Kyoto-G2H. Blu-ray movies possess beautifully natural detail and texture. And Marvell's upconversion yields extraordinary results with DVDs — you'll occasionally be hard-pressed to tell the difference between DVD and Blu-ray. And with 4K upscaling, you'll be ready for the next generation of Ultra High Definition displays. The BDP-105 also includes a new custom-designed dual-core processor to speed up disc loading and player response times over the previous BDP-95.
While this player's picture quality is stunning, it's the BDP-105's sonic capabilities that really make it a star. It handles every multichannel music and soundtrack format out there. Its 7.1-channel analog output makes the BDP-105 the ideal companion for older A/V receivers and preamp-processors that lack either HDMI connections or decoding for the latest surround sound formats. If you use the analog outputs, you'll enjoy sound quality that's superior to that of most A/V receivers. Oppo's fanatical approach to sound combines careful engineering with high-quality parts. For example, the player's dual audio DACs are the top model in the acclaimed ESS Sabre DAC family. Both are 8-channel DACs — one is dedicated to multichannel audio, while the other provides a stereo listening experience characterized by vanishingly low distortion and exceptional detail and soundstaging.
Need more ways to enjoy movies and music? Connect the BDP-105's Ethernet port to your home network, or use the included Wi-Fi® adapter and enjoy Internet movie and music streaming with quality that will surprise you. The '105 supports 1080p streaming for Netflix® and VUDU®, as well as 5.1 surround sound for Netflix and 3D for VUDU. For music, there's Pandora® Internet radio for casual listening, or try downloading high-res FLAC files and putting them on a thumb drive. Pop it in the front-panel USB drive and you'll be amazed at the lifelike sound. If you own an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, be sure to download Oppo's free MediaControlHD app, so you can browse and play songs from connected storage drives without turning on your TV.
In a world of lightweight Blu-ray players, Oppo's commitment to solid construction is reassuring. The BDP-105's sturdy drive mechanism and advanced error correction help it sail through discs that cause other players to stumble and stall. One nice extra is two HDMI outputs. That's handy for feeding two displays, like home theaters with both a projector and a flat-panel TV. It's also a great solution if you have an HDMI-equipped receiver that doesn't handle 3D: you can send 3D video to your TV over one HDMI while sending multichannel audio to your receiver with the other. The BDP-105 improves upon the '95's design with a reinforced rigid chassis, and passive cooling so there's no need for an internal fan. Like the previous model, the BDP-105 is a pleasure to use, with soft-touch controls on the front panel and one of the best backlit remotes we've seen.
For years, Oppo's DVD and Blu-ray players have been favorites with audio/video aficionados. The company has been at the forefront of disc-player design and technology, yet their models are also known for delivering amazing bang for the buck. The BDP-105 is their greatest accomplishment yet, an impressive feat given the tremendous performance of the BDP-95.

Blu-ray players deliver a better picture to your HDTV than any other available source. In fact, Blu-ray's 1080p picture is a perfect match for the 1080p screens found on most current TVs. Blu-ray movies also offer the most precise and realistic surround sound you can get. These players do a terrific job with standard DVDs, too you'll see a cleaner, clearer picture with every disc in your collection. Many Blu-ray players can connect to the Internet for watching online movies from Netflix® and other video services.
This unit replaced a Sony Playstation 3 that had been used exclusively as a CD and Blu-Ray player. I had recently ripped my music collection onto my computer and was looking for a way to get the best sound quality I could.
For years I had heard that Oppo players had exceptional audio and video performance. I was a bit reluctant to spend this kind of money for a Blu-Ray player, but given Crutchfield's reputation for customer satisfaction, I knew I couldn't lose.
I am happy
Pros: The sound and video quality did not disappoint me. Packaging and documentation were excellent.
Cons: None. A USB cable for connecting my laptop would have been nice though.
This is the "audiophile" version, with improved performance in the DAC's (digital to analog convertors) and other parts of the audio circuitry over their 103. If the difference in sound quality isn't important to you, or you plan to use a dedicated sound processor, preamp, or receiver connected via HDMI or optical line out, the 103 will serve you just as well and save you a ton of money.
The BUILD is more substantial (and somewhat bigger), than their 83/83SE.
The PICTURE AND SOUND are about the same, as far as I can tell, as the 83SE (which is very good to superb, depending on your level of discernment or expectations) but of course it adds 3D, & the convenience of inputs to utilize the superb audio section, or to upscale video to either 1080p or, presumably, 4k, if anyone has such a monitor.
The HEADPHONE output is also a nice addition.
The VOLUME goes in single-step increments from 0 to 100, rather than by 5's, for more precise control whether you want it or not.
The REMOTE CONTROL is much more user friendly than that of the 83; you no longer have to be a sharp-shooter to hit the sensor. For battery conservation, the remote no longer lights up any time any button is pressed, but only when the "illumination" button is pressed. A few complaints: Inputs could be more plentiful, the control panel needs actual buttons, the inputs need dedicated buttons on the remote, it needs a way to quit you-tube without powering off, it could let you use 'phones & analog sound both.
Pros: Digital inputs for other devices 3d capability, Very good picture, superb sound
Cons: Touch screen control panel is hard to see and operate. If you're on You Tube and want to go to a disc, you have to shut the power off first.
It's difficult to imagine life without this fine source component that is very impressive from most any aspect, now that it's my daily driver. I already had a good idea of the expected performance, after initially experiencing the demo of the model 83 several years ago. I patiently, yet painfully waited for years, then finally took the plunge with the 105 as my first Oppo purchase. The painfully long wait has been and presently continues as a very rewarding experience, as I imagine the 105 will do so much so well, for years to come. I really wanted an 83 at that earlier time about four years ago; it was that good then. When the excellence of the 83 for example, takes big leaps forward in several areas, the results are spectacular as the model 105 iteration. I have found this, the 105 to be highly intuitive and scalable, as in enabling most every range from basic and simple operation to more complex, with a beautifully intelligent interface to provide the preferred complexity levels of features/operation one may choose for virtually any complexity level preferred. This is engineering success that other brands' designers would do well to realize and apply to their own equipment that is lacking in areas of intelligent, intuitive, operational logic.
Pros: The actual, overall performance that shines from most any aspect, coupled with the fine, deeply researched and intelligent execution for easy access to the operational design's functions. I knew from the earlier models that a simple requirement for the best results requires the 105 to connect with the better/best levels of everything downstream, such as the preamp/amp/speakers. The front display is a huge help for the input status at a quick glance, even if a main TV is off, for example.
Cons: Slight quibbles would be the odd location of the volume control buttons on the remote and a few overall sequences of operations for various functions; access to go from 'this' input source to 'that' source can seem a bit quirky; again though, very minor overall. A mild warning would be that if a system isn't up to rather extreme, high-end standards, the potential owner will be missing some of the best aspects of the 105's astounding quality, performance and almost absurd level of value.
the oppo bdp-105 offers all the high end features and quality that Sony, Denon and Pioneer Elite for 1000 dollars less! I am totally satisfied with this purchase and the Crutchfield team that enabled me to do a two mode payment. thanks, Ziggy!
Cons: nothing as of yet
I bought my Oppo 105 from Crutchfield at the end of Jan. 2014. This was one of the best component upgrades I've ever made. This unit replaced an older Sony universal dvd/cd player and I bought the 105 for its superior audio capacities. I didn't realize how versatile this unit is until I set it up in my system; it functions as a limited input preamp, surround sound processor for up to a 7.1 system, computer audio dac for streaming audio files wirelessly from a NAS and an excellent bluray, DVD, DVD-A, SACD and regular cd player. Due to this versatility, I was able to eliminate my VTL preamp and Parasound AV2500 surround preamp/processor from my system. I was also able to connect my 105 in a very direct manner which I believe has lowered my system's noise floor . I'm now connecting the 'Dedicated Stereo' outputs of the Oppo directly to my amplifier via xlr cables. Home theater surround processing is all done internally with no connecting cables to a separate pre/processor. All of the analog outputs for my 5.1 surround system are connected directly via rca cables to my 2 external power amps. One of the great features of the 105 is its ability to be setup to automatically playback in stereo or multi-channel based on the inputted signal. This means that a bluray disk, or multi channel audio disk or file will be played back through all channels (up to 7.1) without any switches or settings being changed. Likewise, any 2-channel source (cd or audio file) is auto played.
Pros: Excellent video and audio Versatility
Cons: Not inexpensive No others
The more I listen and watching with a help of OPPO-105, the more I am asking myself "how did I live without it". I can sing allocates for hours, but a lot of reviewers already did point out great audio and video qualities of this machine. There is literally nothing it cannot do, and do great. Please make sure that for stereo listening you use balanced out - the sound IMHO is significantly superior (if your amplifier or pre have them). Other suggestion - set output to 1080p24, it will make great improvements in video (if your displya of course supports it). And tinker with HDMI output video settings a bit - small changes can make improvements you like. I found video from HDMI 2 less impressive (they have different processor there) and use it only for multichannel direct DSD streaming from SACDs. Outside of music listening (CDs, SACDs, streaming hi-res audio from my DLNA server, etc, etc) it is a magnificent Blu-Ray player, with picture far superior then my old Samsung BR player. What is even more amazing and defies explanation is that sound from HDMI out is superior to my previous player, and difference is not subtle - it was clear as night and day, and my wife also immediately spotted it - even if for movies decoding is done in my HT receiver. Why - I do not know, but I am happily rewatching now my collection of BR movies.
Pros: Great video and sound Unbelievable connectivity Great build and finish
Cons: Make you spent way too much time listening to music and watching movies.
good sound reproduction , I use it for alot of music playback . That said , I might have done better with a stand alone cd player
Pros: nice sound , nice looks , versitale
Cons: Although sound is good , dont know if it is worth the price . I found the video playback to be very average considering the price , Nice , but not that nice
I decided to try the Oppo BDP-105 out because I recently purchased a new Samsung UN55F8000 thru Crutchfield. So I was looking for a Blu-ray player to do 3D as well (which look outstanding in 3D). I also was planning on buying a DAC for my new Adam Audio Artist 5 speakers. So after some long research I decided to give Oppo 105 a try and I was blown away with the build of the unit and the performance of what you can achieve from it. This player basically does everything one would want from streaming from a Apple Ipad or a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone that you can use the Apps to control the 105 with and also select songs from as well. Just Outstanding. But it has some slight negatives below but nothing to major. But at the end I decided to send the 105 back because of what I wanted to do with it did not work out. Basically use the unit from my AV cabinet where my TV is and run XLR and USB cables to my computer desk which is just to far away. But I decided to buy the Oppo 103D Darbee Edition model and also buy the Oppo HA-1 DAC when it comes out so I can get best of both worlds from Oppo. (I just hate have so many cables running all over the floor)
Pros: Solid Build Easy Setup Top of the line DAC (Crystal Clear sound connected via XLR at MAX volume with NO hiss, hum or static. My Music sounded very dimensional even with a 2.0 speaker setup Great 3D Blu-ray player Ton of connection on back of the 105
Cons: Player at times seem a little slow but nothing to bad. You can only do ONE thing with the unit at a time meaning if I wanted to stream from my Ipad from the player to listen to music with headphones while a friend is watching a Blu-ray movie the 105 could only do one thing a time. I also noticed on some Blu-ray movies seemed kinda of grainy like the movie "The Fifth Element" the sky looked blue with black dots. (But maybe the movie had a bad Blu-ray encoding)
The Oppo BDP-105 is not only a consummate disc player (my SACD and DVD/Audio content has never sounded so good), but it has also transformed watching and listening to everything else. FLAC files streamed over a network sound glorious, Netflix looks fantastic, and DVDs are upscaled beautifully. Oppo tech support has helped with prompt answers to a couple of setup questions - the versatility of this machine allows for lots of options, and they've provided solutions to everything. My only two issues have been completely outside of the Oppo player itself (I have a receiver that will not allow Audyssey processing with analog inputs, and a DLNA media server was causing performance issues on my laptop) Using HDMI for audio works fine with Audyssey, though I can't take full advantage of the Oppo DAC. And using the regular network connectivity instead of DLNA lets me stream music from elsewhere in the house. I have always been a cheapskate, looking for the best possible performance at the best price, and though the BDP-105 certainly is not inexpensive, I feel like I've received fantastic value for the money. A person could easily spend more on just a high end CD player, or a stand-alone DAC, or a music server, and Oppo rolls it all into one component, along with blu ray performance that can't be beat. I've never paid this much for any kind of disc transport before, but I feel I've gotten much more than just a player.
Pros: Fantastic video quality from any source, be it disc-based or streaming. Network connectivity that allows me to play anything from anywhere in the house. Audio performance that has revitalized my collection, regardless of the medium.
Cons: The size and weight make it a bit inconvenient to do spur-of-the moment reconfigurations, but this is a minor quibble, given the amount of fun you can have exploring all the possibilities of the machine.
OUTSTANDING!! BRAVO!! BRAVO!!! The OPPO 105 is the Premiere BluRay, DVD, CD, and HighRes Audio Player EVER!! The first thing you will notice is the incredible build of this unit; truly stunning to look at. The video quality is superb - and will upscale any type of you video you give it. My BluRay collection has a new life - the video is so sharp and the true colors pop. I have over 5,000 CDs; 600 SACDs and 150 BluRay Music discs. The fidelity and crispness of the audio is TOP NOTCH!!! I can't stop playing all my music and begin to hear details not revealed before. The Oppo is attached to my new Yamaha CX-A5000 Pro surround preamp and my older M&K Amps and new Yamaha MX-A5000 amplifiers and the music is produced through a full 5.1 Martin Logan electrostatic surround speaker system. Going to hear the Chicago Symphony twice a month in person, I can tell you that the Oppo is FIRST RATE in every way to reproduce the most subtle nuances of classical music. If you want the best sound, then buy this Oppo 105 player - do not hesitate!!! Order today from Crutchfield!!!
Pros: Outstanding Audiophile Qualities and Pro Video reproduction. Great GUI Interface. Plenty of outputs and inputs for both multiple displays; balanced audio; and High Res audio files.
Cons: NONE!! FLAWLESS!!!
I have had my Oppo BDP-105 since Christmas. The audio and video performance has been exceptional. I rate the unit 4.5 stars almost a 5.0 (see cons below) I have my unit hooked up in 5.1 analog audio for movies, SACD, and TV and dedicated 2 ch for CD and MP3. The value to me is the variety of input and output options, especially the ability to use dedicated analog outputs for multi-channel and 2 Ch audio. The two HDMI inputs are also a bonus. If you don't plan on using the analog outputs I would consider a different player. You will be paying for a lot of functionality you won't be using.
Pros: Two HDMI inputs The best audio performance I have ever heard. I have played music in the following formats CD, SACD, and DVD. Movies and TV also sound great. I have watched the Hobbit and Star Trek Into Darkness Blu rays and both have sounded great. The video has remarkable detail. You can stream Pandora directly from the Oppo and it sounds great, significantly better than when I streamed Pandora from my IPad directly into my Pre-Amp.
Cons: The firmware version out of the box did not sync well with my cable box. Once I updated the firmware the problem was fixed. For the price the Oppo should not have sync issues out of the box. The display on the unit scrolls "screen saver" after a few minutes, which can be a distraction. If you want to stop playing a movie and start where you left off you must either open the door or turn off the player. If you stop & switch functions the disk will start at the top of the menu..
Hooked it up to my system damb, are these the same CD's I'm hearin' new sounds that weren't there before What else can I say?
Pros: Flexibility it's like a pre-amp The headphone jack is sick
I purchased the 105 to use as the front end on a high resolution 2 channel audio system, replacing a highly respected DAC/transport. I was initially concerned that the sound of the 105 would be too "digital", too etched in the high frequencies. The first CD I played was one on which the vocals were not well recorded; they had a a kind of shrieky sound on some notes. I chose this on purpose as a sort of torture test, thinking that if the 105 could reproduce this as well or better than what it was replacing I might have a winner. Not only did it improve on the vocals but there was more detail overall, more bass slam (not bloated but more impact). The midrange was more detailed but smoother as well. Haven't even tried it as a video player, so I can't comment on that. I love this machine!
Pros: Incredibly flexible, plays any format disc, can be used as a stand alone DAC, appears to be solidly constructed.
Cons: Haven't come across any
A friend of mine convinced me that the Oppo BDP-105 was worth the investment and, as it turned out, he was right on. The machine is well built and its design features make it a joy to use. I haven't had one issue with it since integrating it into my home theatre system. If you do make the decision to purchase this Blu-Ray player do purchase the Roku stick that is recommended as an option. It will allow the player to receive many more streaming services than are built into the machine's firmware.
Pros: The machine's architecture and supporting firmware are rock solid. The machine and its remote control are easy to use.
Cons: None that I have encountered to date.
Excellent player with excellent support. Recomended highly !
It's hard to add to what's already been said. Set-up is easy, phenomenal video and audio quality. The best on the market and worth every penny! Oh, and it's beautiful!
Pros: Easy to use, video and audio quality that is unsurpassed.
Cons: Expensive, but worth it!
I chose the BDP-105 for the XLR audio outputs and the SABRE DAC combo. It is in my soon to be home-theater room. I currently am using it a an audio CD player until I purchase a TV. My unit took about 25 to 30 hours of use to "break-in" the audio circuits. It sounded very good out of the box and continued to improve showing speed, accuracy, and detail. I like the WiFi remote for my droid. I found the WiFi easy to set-up. I cannot wait to watch some movies, I suspect I will be very pleased. I don't intend to buy a Smart TV since this does more than a Smart TV. The shipping time was reasonable and it was well packed. I feel I couldn't touch a player that does all of this for twice the price. I would recommend (and have) to my friends.
Pros: This unit can be used to perform the functions of a Smart TV. You may not need to buy a Smart TV to watch movies on it. Depending upon your needs, this may help reduce the cost of your TV purchase.
Cons: One cannot turn on the unit with the WiFi from my phone when in Stand-by mode, but works fine with the remote and the switch on the front.
I agree with everyone else , its simply the best :) and thank you Crutchfield for all your help with the other issues you solved, you are first class. I could give you pages of tekkie stuff , but if you are reading this , you already know !!
The Oppo BDP-105 work wonderful and make all my CD,DVD,and Blu-ray Look and sound out of sight.
Pros: Lots of Ins and out and a big set forward in sound and video.
This player is amazing. After hooking it up, i could see a difference in video quality. If you can get it! This guy is heavy for a blu ray player. It is the size of a reciever.
Pros: Amazing, video processing. Sound decoding is second to none. Very well made.
Cons: None. It is pricey, but that isn't a con. It is well worth it.
This is an exceptional player. The sound produced by the Oppo significantly opens the soundstage compared to any player I have ever used. The attention to detail and crispness on both ends of the sound frequency range are unparalleled. Video is crisp and pure. I have never watched movies with such brilliant detail in audio and video. CD's took on a whole new life with the Oppo. Menu and setup are easy to use. Highly recommended.
Pros: Sound and picture quality Build quality Ease of use
I purchased Oppo BDP-105 and the Cambridge Audio 752 for my dedicated home theater to decided which component complimented my system. I use B&W 800 series speakers, Arcam AV 9, Rotel amps and Purist Audio Speaker cables and interconnects. Both Oppo and Cambridge offered great video and audio. Video output was substantially better than my favorite blu ray player: Panasonic bdp 350 and Sony. However i preferred Oppo over cambridge for the video image, although both players use the same video processor the image on Oppo was more clear and movie like with very little artifacts! I was also very impressed with the Oppos sound quality! I typically favor European systems such as Arcam or Classe but surprisingly Oppo offered a very big sound stage with out brightness for a brand new system! My entire room is sound proof so i am not sure if the room had an impact on my assessment (which mostly likely would). I decided to stay with Oppo and returned Cambridge for all the functionality it offers. In general Oppo offers great video and audio, the sound is a bit more forward but it was ideal for my theater room. And i had no issues with streaming, in matter of fact i watched several movies from Netflix and the speed/picture was excellent. The only reason i give them 4 star is because of the remote. They should consider to make the remote with higher quality material but in general Oppo 105 is an excellent unit.
Pros: Great video and audio. High quality construction, so many features! Great unit in general
Cons: cheap looking remote
I had to return this item to Crutchfield, as its dual HDMI outputs did not perform as promised by the sales specialist, who claimed he understood the issue.
Pros: Crutchfield was great about honoring their return policy. I am told that Oppo is otherwise a very good unit.
Cons: You cannot use the dual HDMI outputs "Dual Output" for two different displays without Oppo stepping down its output to the lesser of the two connected devices. So by example, if one output is to a display that is 7.1 capable and the other only capable of 2.0, Oppo steps down its output to both jacks to 2.0. This can be found on page 55 of the owners manual and was confirmed between Crutchfield and Oppo technical support departments prior to my returning this product.
Excellent, much better and improved over my BDP 93.
Pros: Great features.
Cons: Operating manual should be more useful. Depends on users to help setup and implement the various functions. They need their own web official site with correct info. i.e. "Internet Streaming" "oppo does not offer technical support via email or phone for this feature" . For $1200 I expect more than go Google.
I can't add much to all of the glowing reviews for this product other than they are all true! I am notoriously frugal when buying equipment (mostly buying used) but I wanted to get a major upgrade to my CD playback to compete with my excellent vinyl set up. The fact that this unit can also be used as a DAC means that I can sell my old CD player and my DacMagic. CD, SACD, DVD playback is astounding. A big surprise is that my MP3 are sounding almost CD-quality to my ears - especially remastered tracks. Crutchfield is a great vendor and I will buy from them again.
Pros: Great DAC, Great CD Playback, Improvent in video quality from my Oppo BDP-80
Cons: None so far..
Excellent, works smoothly, set up is easy. Audio quality is kind of thin and bright to me.
This is an impressive machine, engineered with professional skill. It is easy to connect and operate, and produces truly exceptional visual and audio quality. It's far more expensive than mass-market DVD players, and it should be.
This is truly a high end player.There is enough functionality to make any audiophile and videophile happy. The Oppo 105 offers a state of the art video and audio processor that results in amazing picture quality and extremely accurate audio reproduction. I would highly recommend to anyone reading this review to try out Morrow audio and video cables. I have, and have been blown away by the sound quality of these cables.Your system will never sound any better for the price.
Pros: Easy set up out of the box with no install issues. Great all around player.
Overall it's an excellent unit. It's easy to use and sound great.
Pros: Execellent system. It's simple and easy to use. You can throw anything in it and it will play.
EXCELLENT! Far better than my old Wadia 860.
Pros: Easy operation and menus.
Cons: None so far!
Fantastic Blu-ray player. It plays all my Blu-rays, DVD's, DVD-audio, SACD and CD's without any problem. This is the player that I wanted since 5 years ago. Recommended
Pros: Plays all type of media flawlessly. Also Netflix and You Tube applications runs fast and smooth in this player even connected to wireless.
Cons: Can't find any negative commentary about this player.
Good On Screen Menus - Needed Crutchfield Technical Support To Realize To Select "Bitstream" For Optical Cable Use - Everything Else Went Fine
Pros: High Quality Construction As Detailed In Crutchfield's Technical Information
A superb addition to my home theater. The reviews don't lie. I read many of them myself before purchasing this amazing universal player. The DAC on this player does a great job of isolating each of the 7.1 channels I am using for the lossless audio formats. Two channel stereo , 6.1 matrix & headphone DAC are all top notch. Now for video quality for 2D content, 3D films & DVD up converting again this a noticeable improvement on similar priced units & and on many of higher end flagships out there. Honestly this is a real bargain for all you get from this one machine.
Pros: Well built, great audio & video performance across the board. The back of the player has multiple connection options. I for one favor the 5.1 or 7.1 analog outputs.
Cons: Not a thing to complain about if you look at all what you get for your money.
Best blueray I've ever owned. Improved my whole systems sound 200%. Would recommend to anyone that wants to improve their system.
Pros: Crutchfield customer service. Had a question about the USB input that was causing some playback issues. They responded back by e-mail and their solution hit the nail right on the head.
Cons: Wish inputs had a key on remote for each of their inputs.
Very nice good quality player. Nothing can touch it in this price range. Are there any other players that sound better out there? Sure but they cost much more. Are there players out there that display better video, you ask. I say I don't think so.
Pros: Video, sound, built quality, remote.
Cons: No network stand by mode, no built in fan. Made in China.
Probably unfair to review this so soon for reasons to be explained. We bought this to use with our church soundboard, replacing an inexpensive 8-year old DVD player. We have thusfar been unable to use it because of apparent sound incompatibilities with the soundboard. We adjusted the remote volume control down to a 15 from its max setting of 100 and set speaker volume to a -5db, speakers set as Stereo L/R. We are using XLR connectors from Oppo to the Soundcraft model GB8-40 soundboard. It is so "hot" I have to have all volume settings to "0." I have tried the 1/4" outs to our board with similar results. We output the video to an Eiki sanctuary size projector and this works just fine; its the audio that is giving us a headache. I guess it "could" be a defective Oppo but I tend to think it is the hookup. We are continuing to try to resolve this problem.
Pros: Strong video. Plethora of menu settings (all excellent.) Remote also has settings I did not see in the setup menu; they are in the options menu on the remote. The remote's volume control is one example of a control not in the setup menu.
Cons: Potential audio hookup incompatibilities with soundboards. No rack mount kit included in the base price. (Seems like many who would use this player would have it in a rack as a part of their smart home setup.)Crutchfield response on May 21, 2013 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
It is hard to find fault with a machine that claims to do everything when in fact it does. The sound quality is incredible, your SACD's never sounded better. The ability to access your network to play your music files is a great feature...and the sound from the Oppo DAC's is the best I've heard. And yes, hi def video is as good as I've seen and the access to Netflix, Pandora, etc. Is quick and easy...the remote even has a quick access button for Netflix. This is an audiophile grade machine that delivers the goods!
Pros: Incredible audio quality, quality 'build', video.performance
This was bought as an upgrade to my previous oppo 95, which I originally bought for curiousity sake. I mean how could a Dvd player be so expensive?, but to my amazement it made a huge diffrence in my system, so much that I have completely upgraded everything. The oppo 105 has been upgraded by Modwright company and is just beyond words. I love this player and am a true Oppo fan for life. Susan with crutchfield customer service is truley the best, thank you so much for going above and beyond.
Pros: Sleek, beautiful construction, sound and video unbelievable
We had tried two other Blu-Ray players with Internet connectivity and were disappointed by the audio and video quality. We then bit the bullet and opted for the much more expensive Oppo. As recommended by the manufacturer we used separate HDMI audio and video outs to our television and our receiver, The results are absolutely stunning. Our CDs are brilliant, Blu-Rays are magnificent and streaming from the Internet is seamless with perfect audio video sync. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who wants to experience superb sound and vision reproduction. As per a review we read prior to our purchase we are now "Oppo happy."
I purchased the Oppo BDP-105 to replace an aging Samsung Bluray player that is on its last legs. But, being an audiophile (Emerald Physics speakers, Wyred 4 Sound amps), I wanted to know how it would sound in my stereo rig so I hooked it up using balanced XLR cables and I am absolutely hooked on the sound! As a bonus, I was able to bypass a $1200 preamp/DAC (which I can now sell) because the Oppo has made my system sound so much better without it. The Oppo has opened up the already incredible soundstage while keeping it full and lifelike. Imaging is more precise with increased detail, resolution and musicality. The bass is fast and tighter without any bloat or sense of strain. They have helped make a good speaker sound great beyond what I could have imagined. Eventually, the Oppo BDP-105 will go into my home theater system where it belongs, but in the meantime I may have to put that old Samsung Bluray player on life support. Also, kudos to Crutchfield. Ryan was great to deal with and the payment plan made the purchase a no-brainer.
Pros: A rock solid investment in most any audiophile's chain of command.
I bought this Oppo for an audiophile stereo system as a do-it-all digital source. It replaces my CD player and possibly my stand-alone DAC for computer music (we'll wait to see until after break-in). It comes surprisingly close to the excellent sound I get from the stand-alone DAC which costs about what the the Oppo costs.
This unit is the Swiss Army knife of the digital world. It allows me to listen to my CD, SACD, DVD-Audio and Bluray music collection while also allowing access to the excellent DAC section for my HDTracks downloads; all at an unbelieveable price!!
For other audiophiles reading this; the sonic character is a little lean and bright thus far (about 120 hours beak-in so far). It is extremely detailed, revealing and unforgiving. So careful paring is necessary so you don't end up with a harsh sounding system. This unit is bright with the ribbon tweeters of my speakers which is why I may keep the stand-alone DAC for computer based music. Also, high quality interconnects are a must with this unit.
All in all; extremely high value, unbelievably capable digital hub for your stereo or surround system. Plan on buying seperate components costing 2 to 3 times as much to best it...
Pros: Do-it-all digital hub with top-notch audio and video quality at an unbelievably reasonable price. Unmatched customer support and 60 day return policy of Crutchfield.
Cons: A tad lean and bright for high-end audio use; although that is a matter of taste.
This is my first blue-ray player and I love it. I decided on the Oppo BDP-105 based on previous reviews. So far it has delivered outstanding performance. Excellent audio and video quality. It is extremely well built.
Pros: Excellent player with outstanding performance.
Cons: Expensive - but worth it.
Versatile machine that now plays multichannel dsd files from usb drives. Bravo to Oppo for getting rid of the noisy fan.
Pros: You can see where your dollars went.
Cons: Not so much a "con" as a suggestion to Oppo: how about incorporating room correction and dual subwoofer crossovers?
This really shouldn't be called a "Blu-Ray" player as it does so much more. If you just want to watch a high quality Blu-Ray Movie I'm sure you can find less expensive units that will be ALMOST as good, but none that combine the Audiophile quality D to A convertors, Video and audio processing , network capability and audiophile quality headphone amplification and ability to connect to older non HDMI equipped receivers with high quality surround sound processing thjat this unit puts together. It really can be considered a video "pre-amp". Check the price of standalone D to A audio convertors, many of the same quality sell for far more than this entire unit. I called the company to ask a question and got a live person on the first ring who knew the product inside and out. No waiting on hold, no muzak while you wait for someone to look something up in a data base about the product you called about, just someone who works at the company that designed the product and knew it's features cold. If the audiophile features are less important consider their less expensive versions. They are all considered to have the highest quality video processing of any consumer products available.
Pros: State of the Art Video and Audio quality with the ability to improve the video output of any HDMI equipped device, Audiophile D to A converters, Audiophile Headphone amplifier. To buy all of this separately ( and without the unique features) would easily run 4-5 x the price of the unit .
Cons: It is expensive. But in this case it is the bargain of the century.
Although I enjoyed the Blu-Ray, DVD, and SACD sound quality coming through my Yamaha RX-2700, my CD's were virtually un-listenable with my $89 SONY player. Knowing the Yamaha along with My Polk RTI12's were more than capable of producing high quality sound I knew it was time to upgrade my Sony player. I was also interested in adding a high quality DACs to my system for online content, HI-Res digital downloads and SACD playback; the individual pieces were now getting pricey. I began seeing positive reviews for the Oppo BDP-105 late last year which had all the analog and digital bells and whistles I was looking for and knew it would cover all my needs while delivering quality sound and picture. Although I haven't used all the features yet I have once again been enjoying my CD collection. I have been listening to on-line content and my Hi-RES downloads via the asynchronous USB DAC input (192kbps/24bit resolution = studio quality) and couldn't be happier. I have been switching between the HDMI and the Muti-media analog inputs of the Yamaha with amazing sound from either choice... although I think the Analog outputs from the Oppo might be a little warmer than the the straight HDMI connection. Currently I have the Oppo HDMI1 going to my TV and HDMI2 going to the Yamaha receiver while allowing the BDP-105 to do all the decoding. Sounds amazing!
I could have purchased this direct from Oppo but the Crutchfield 60day return policy and available support sold me on it..
Pros: A bargain for an audiophile quality muti-format playback device. The external wireless adapter allowed me to extend it to the top of my basement stairs for 95% signal strength. Netflix streaming works extremely well, Pandora sounds great. Oppo support is quick to respond. Set-up is easy. This is much more than a Blu-ray player as another review stated, you could use this straight to a power amp as a pre-amp/processor If you can live without the tone control and Auto-EQ of the receiver.
Cons: None so far, I've heard of sync issues through the HDMI input but haven't tried it yet.
One word, INCREDIBLE.
got rid of my DAC, OPPO's better, getting rid of my AV/Pre Proc OPPO's better.
They really nailed it with this one. even accidently dropped a 10ft wide 2.35 screen on it. did not even skip the BR disc. or dent the top cover.
Worth every penny and then some.
Pros: Everything,even tunnels down through my itunes library and displays cover art while playing.
Cons: Spent alot of money on a high end DAC and AV Pre/Proc. Don't need them anymore. Selling at a loss
This player is amazing in sound and video quality. I use the analog outputs for 7.1 into my Pioneer Elite home theatre amp so that I get the benefit of the great audio design. The sound field is better than ever. It is all I expected it to be with one exception.
The cable company HD TV box is connected to the HDMI 1 input on the Oppo. The Oppo is connected directly to the tv with HDMI out. When watching tv broadcasts, the audio starts to drift out of sync with the picture until there is a gap of at least 3 seconds. It is very distracting watching this way. When I change channel, the audio/video is again in sync and again starts to drift out of sync until after 10 minutes or so there is a gap of 3 seconds again. If I bypass the Oppo and go directly into my Pioneer with the cable box, there is no problem with sync. After calling Crutchfield, I was informed there is a known issue with the audio/video sync with cable tv boxes AND no date for resolution. Of the other reviews I had read before buying this product, I did not see anyone else mention this issue.
Otherwise, this unit lives up to its reputation. I gave 4 stars due to this issue of sync. I had hoped to use the Oppo as my main processor, but this issue prevents me from doing so.
Pros: Great video. Fast load time of DVD. Analog audio output is top notch. Streaming Netflix video looks great (have it connected with CAT 5e, not wireless).
Cons: Only issue is audio/video sync problems when using cabe tv box into Oppo unit. No resolution time given to me by Crutchfield.
This product was exactly as advertised and reviewed by others -- it is rock solid in its build; plays everything you can throw at it; and has a DAC that is world-class (which keep in mind is only relevant if you are using analog cables since the use of the HDMI cable will by-pass the Oppo's DAC). What I wound up doing was double-cabling the box so that everything I play in 5.1 goes through the HDMI (and gets the advantage of what my AVR can do to set up 5.1 properly) and everthing I play in pure stereo goes through analog cables (thereby taking advantage of the DAC).
Pros: Extremely well built; knowledgable support staff at Oppo actually helps over the phone; cutting edge video playback, audio playback, and input/outputs.
Cons: While this isn't really a "con" for the BDP-105, the price difference between this and the 103 probably outstrips the difference in the achieved value of the 105's better DAC (which according to Oppo is 90%+ of the difference between the two units). If possible, you may want to try both and see if the difference in sound achieved is worth the more than 2X price delta between these two models. My guess is that unless you have a VERY high-end system the difference will be pretty limited.
Boy, let me tell you how glad I am that I purchased this player from Crutchfield. The first player I received had an audio problem. I was a little disappointed but I understand these sort of things happen even to the best of them. What made the difference and why I can leave a five star receive now is the way Crutchfield stepped up and took care of things. They issued a postage paid return label and took the replacement machine out of the box to check it for me before sending it out. The new unit preforms flawlessly and has every feature I wanted, including a USB2 input for my Mac-based music server. The sound is very, very good indeed now that I've got a properly working unit. The Blu-Ray picture is the best I've seen and the Oppo replaced a better than average Pioneer Blu-Ray player. The menu is nicely laid out and the initial set-up and configuration is fairly straight forward and easy to figure out. Anyone half familiar with modern players like this shouldn't even need to open the manual. Also, Five stars to Crutchfield too for their service and support getting the first player swapped out and replaced.
Pros: Top-of-the line picture and sound. Just about every input and output imaginable. Crutchfield's great support.
Cons: Well, not counting the first player....none.
Everything about this player is five star.Fast start up time;no waiting for loading times,ect. Beautiful picture. The audio is crisp,clear,and detailed. It sounds so good that I'm thinking of selling my Csrry 303/300 CD player. I had purchaesd a $150.00 player to experiment and see if I liked 3d.The $150.00 player was good, but this player is incredible; a big noticeable differience. The 3D is a whole differient world.The more I watch it, the more I like it.I highly recommened this player.
Pros: All around excellent
The BDP-105 is an great multi format player. Great picture and great sound from both DVD and Blue-Ray. The server side is not as advertised. It will not take an HDMI input without issues. I was asked to load the most current firmware on a new unit which did not solve the problem. Service suggested they are working on the problem. I'm not sure it is honest to advertise a feature which they know is not working at this time. I have not tried other server features!
Pros: Great multi format player.
Cons: Not a full function server as advertised, waiting for further firmware which may fix the problem.
The picture and audio quality of this do all blu ray player is absolutely stunning. It gets better every time you turn in it on. All you have to do is play an old favorite concert dvd and you will hear things that you never knew were even in the recording. And the picture is way beyond any blu ray I have owned in the past. The set up is extremely easy and the laundry list of capabilities goes on forever. Tech savvy owners will have a field day with this machine. Being kind of old school I just plugged in my AudioQuest Coffee HDMI and WOW away we go. The 105 is simply superb.
Pros: Everything - Superb packaging and state of the art performance.
Cons: ABSOLUTELY NONE!
This product has the usual Oppo quality. What is unusual is the collection of inputs that allows this player to serve as a video processor and preamp. If you have separate amplifiers or active speakers you do NOT need a preamp in your system any more. This thing is misnamed as a Blu Ray player. It is a complete digital and audio source. Sell your preamp and take advantage of the quality that a simplified audio chain gives you.
This is simply a breakthrough.
Pros: Unique versatility at a very high quality level.
Cons: Expensive if you want just a Blu Ray player. Firmware is not complete on introduction.

Blu-ray Disc: Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD) is the name of a next-generation optical disc format. The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.
Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The BDP-105 is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.
Blu-ray 3D: Blu-ray 3D is the Blu-ray disc video format for 3-dimensional (3D) video playback developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA). Supporting Full HD (1080p), so you can enjoy high quality 3D video. TV and Blu-ray titles are also required to be 3D compatible to enjoy the 3D experience. Adding a 3D capable A/V Receiver will provide a more engaging audio and video consumer experience.
Firmware Updates: As Blu-ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet via the rear-panel Ethernet terminal. Occasionally, Oppo may release new firmware for the purpose of additional features or product improvements. Firmware updates can be downloaded from the Oppo website via the player's Ethernet connection. This player offers automatic firmware notification.
Note: Visit Oppo's Help and Support site for the latest firmware updates.
DVD-Audio: DVD-Audio is an extension of the highly popular DVD format, distinguished by its capability to deliver high quality multi-channel audio capability previously unavailable in traditional packaged audio media.
SACD: The BDP-105 plays Super Audio CD (SACD) and supports both stereo and multi-channel high resolution audio programs. Blu-ray Players that support Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. Users can select whether to output the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) signal in its native format over HDMI or convert it into high resolution PCM. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range, some 64x higher resolution then CD, Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just can't hear on a normal CD.
HDCD: High Definition Compatible Digital (HDCD) discs let you enjoy expanded dynamic range and improved audio resolution.
AVCHD: AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) is a digital video format used to record high definition or standard definition video, using an efficient data compression coding technology. The format is designed to compress video and audio (Dolby Digital or Linear PCM) data, enabling a high definition video signal shot on a digital camcorder and recorded on DVD disc to be played back. The BDP-105 supports AVCHD playback from DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs.
DivX Plus HD: The Oppo BDP-105supports DivX Plus HD playback from DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs. The unit supports DivX Plus HD video with a resolution up to 1920 x 1080 pixels.
JPEG Slideshows: The BDP-105 will playback JPEG still image files written to DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs.
Music File Playback: The Oppo Blu-ray disc player supports playback of AAC, FLAC, MP3, PCM, WAV, and WMA audio files recorded onto DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs.
PAL/NTSC Conversion: The BDP-105 supports NTSC and PAL systems for both disc playback and video output. It can also convert content of one system for output in another.
Parental Control: Parental Control allows you to set a rating limit based on the age of the viewer, preventing your children from viewing inappropriate material. Playback will stop if the ratings exceed the level you set, and it will require you to enter a 4-digit password before the disc will play back.
Rigid Chassis Construction: Built around a heavy gauge steel chassis, sculptured aluminum faceplate, and center-mounted tray, the BDP-105 is designed to impress as well as to provide a stable base for the highest quality reproduction of your favorite audio/video media. The BDP-105 is also passively cooled, allowing it to run both cool and quiet without the need for internal or external fans.
Qdeo by Marvell: The BDP-105 incorporates Marvell's Kyoto-G2H video processor with the second generation Qdeo technology. Qdeo video processing delivers a truly immersive viewing experience by rendering quiet natural video free of noise and artifacts for all types of content. For high-quality Blu-ray content, the BDP-105 faithfully reproduces the program just as the director intended; for DVD, the up-converted picture quality bridges the visual gap from your current DVD library to Blu-ray discs; for network streaming and user-encoded content at a variety of formats and quality, the BDP-105 offers enhancement options including video noise reduction, compression artifact reduction, intelligent color, contrast, detail and edge enhancements.
HDMI Inputs/Outputs: The Oppo BDP-105 is fitted with dual HDMI outputs and dual HDMI inputs.
Notes: Some A/V sync problems may occur when some cable TV boxes are connected via the HDMI IN port (front or back). The Blu-ray player does not feature any analog video inputs or outputs; such as composite, component, or S-video.
4K Up-Scaling: The Oppo BDP-105 further enhances your home theater experience with four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p, by up-scaling all video sources to 4K (3840 x 2160) output resolution.
True 24p Video + DVD 24P Conversion: Many Blu-ray Discs are recorded at 24 frames-per-second (fps), the same frame rate as the original movie's theatrical release. The BDP-105 can faithfully redeliver the original frames using 1080p 24Hz output (compatible display required) for smoother motion and a flicker-free, film-like home theater experience. DVD 24P Conversion allows you to enable 24Hz frame rate conversion for DVD for smoother motion picture experience.
Source Direct Mode: For users who wish to use an external video processor, high-end audio/video receiver or display, the BDP-105 offers a "Source Direct" mode. The original audio/video content on the discs is sent out with no additional processing or alteration. The actual output resolution varies by content:
|Content||Source Direct Output Resolution|
|Most Blu-ray Movies (film source)||1080p or 1080p/24Hz|
|Most Blu-ray TV shows or Concerts (video-source)||1080i|
|SACD and DVD-Audio||1080p|
3D-Ready: The Oppo BDP-105 lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. There are three 3D output settings.
Note: 3D viewing requires compatible 3D content, 3D-ready HDTV, 3D emitter and glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (supporting at least 10.2 Gbps) connection.
2D-to-3D Conversion: Take your standard DVD, Blu-ray, and other video content to the next dimension by converting them into 3D with the simple press of a button. The BDP-105 can also adjust the depth and eye convergence levels to suit your personal preference.
3D TV Size: This option applies to 3D mode, to help the player adjust the 3D image to the screen size of your HDTV for better visual quality.
x.v.Color: x.v.Color reproduces a wider range of color than the HDTV standard, showing almost all of the colors that the human eye can detect. Currently there is no x.v.Color software available on Blu-ray, but the BDP-105 is ready to take advantage of x.v.Color discs when they become available.
Deep Color: The HDMI output supports Deep Color, increasing the number of bits available for transmission, meaning more colors are displayed. The BDP-105 can provide 4,096 shades of each of the three primary colors, for a total of 68.7 billion possible colors. This results in greater color fidelity, smooth tonal transitions, and ultra-fine gradations between colors. It also enables more shades of gray, for higher contrast ratio.
Aspect Ratio and Zoom Modes: The BDP-105 supports multiple levels of aspect ratio control and image zooming. Users can watch a movie in its original aspect ratio, fit to the full screen, or zoom in to remove the black bars on some titles. For users with a 2.35:1 CIH (Constant Image Height) display system, the player's zoom modes include a vertical stretch mode to work nicely with an anamorphic lens. You can choose from the following Aspect Ratio and Zoom Modes:
Subtitle Shift: For customers using a 2.35:1 "Constant Image Height" video projection system, subtitles may get cut off because they are positioned outside of the active video area. The Subtitle Shift feature can be useful to these customers. The player can shift subtitles up or down so they are displayed within the active video area.
Advanced Picture Control: Users can have fine control of brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, sharpness, noise reduction, color, and contrast enhancements. The player can remember and apply three custom picture control modes to suit a variety of viewing conditions and content types.
Bonus View: The Bonus View feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.
High-Quality Sound: Thanks to the high performance DAC chips, the toroidal power supply, high quality parts, and engineering, the Oppo BDP-105 offers a very detailed sound with an extremely low noise floor and distortion. You will hear details from your music that you have missed before.
Sabre³² Reference Audio DAC: The DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) is one of the most important components for digital audio playback. The Sabre³² Reference ES9018 from ESS Technology is the world's best performing 32-bit audio DAC solution targeted for high-end consumer applications and professional studio equipment. With the ESS patented 32-bit Hyperstream DAC architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the Sabre³² Reference DAC delivers an unprecedented DNR (Dynamic Range) of up to 135dB and THD+N (Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise) of 120dB; the industry's highest performance level that will satisfy even the most demanding audio enthusiast. The BDP-105 uses two ES9018 DAC chips; one for the 7.1-channel output, and another for the dedicated stereo output.
Toroidal Power Supply: A toroidal power transformer offers superior power efficiency and much lower exterior magnetic fields over traditional laminated steel core transformers. The BDP-105's toroidal linear power supply provides a very clean and robust power source to the critical audio components.
Analog Outputs: The Oppo BDP-105 is fitted with unbalanced stereo RCA outputs, XLR balanced stereo outputs, and 7.1ch RCA analog outputs.
Digital Outputs: For simple and easy connection to more traditional A/V receivers, the BDP-105 features both optical and coaxial outputs for digital audio. The optical and coaxial digital inputs support 48k LPCM, 96k LPCM, 192k PCM, and Bitstream (Dolby Digital/DTS). Due to bandwidth limitations, high resolution audio formats such as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio cannot be sent through the coaxial or optical digital audio output. A reduced resolution version of the same audio track will be output instead.
Digital Inputs: The Oppo BDP-105 can function as a dedicated DAC (digital-to-analog converter) and process external digital audio signals with its internal Sabre³² Reference DAC. Three digital audio inputs (Optical/Coaxial/USB) allow you to connect external audio devices. The processed analog audio is output through the player's stereo RCA, XLR and analog multichannel output terminals.
Digital Audio Formats: The Blu-ray player's HDMI output is capable of multi-channel bitstream (Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital, and DTS) and multi-channel PCM output. The optical and coaxial digital outputs pass either Dolby Digital or DTS bitstream, or 2-channel PCM.
Pure Audio Mode: You can enjoy higher quality music audio by turning off the video processing and output. The Pure Audio mode reduces any potential interference between the video and audio signals.
Note: Because HDMI carries audio together with video, the HDMI video signal cannot be completely turned off. A black screen is transmitted instead to minimize any potential interference.
Audio Format Chart:The following chart provides a reference to what type of audio signal can be expected (when Secondary Audio is off):
|Source Format||HDMI Output||Coaxial/Optical Output||Analog Multi-Channel Output|
|LPCM 2ch||LPCM 2ch||LPCM 2ch||LPCM 2ch||LPCM 2ch||2ch|

ARC (Audio Return Channel): Audio Return Channel (ARC) is a feature introduced in HDMI v1.4 which allows you to send digital audio signals from the television back to the player or your receiver. Instead of listening through the TV speakers, ARC allows the sound to be processed and produced by your home theater audio system.
Direct Stream Digital (DSD) Encoding: The Super Audio CD standard is based on Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology, a 1-bit system with a digital sampling frequency 64x that of conventional audio CD's 2,822,400 samples per second. Mixed with as many of the original frequencies as possible, the audio information audible for human ears sounds much more natural than CD. The DSD bitstream can be output via HDMI or the multi-channel output.
Down Mix Mode: Down mix is the process of converting multi-channel audio to less number of channels. For example, converting a 5.1ch source to stereo, or converting a 7.1ch source to 5.1ch. Down mixing allows the audio output from the player to match the exact number of speakers available in your home theater. The following down mix modes are available.
Speaker Configuration: In the Speaker Configuration menu you can configure speaker settings such as speaker distance, speaker size, crossover frequency, and trim level.
Note: Speaker Configuration applies to the multi-channel analog audio outputs only. All digital bitstream and LPCM outputs are unaffected by these settings.
Dynamic Range Control (DRC): DRC can smooth out the sonic peaks and valleys common with wide-range digital audio. Enabling DRC may make low level audio more audible during low-level listening. The Dynamic Range Compression is applied on the analog audio output; it also works on the digital audio output (HDMI, Coaxial and Optical) when the audio format is set to PCM.
Headphone Output: The Oppo BDP-105 features a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack for connecting a set of headphones, so you can listen to your music privately. The headphone output's volume can be adjusted within the unit's on-screen menu.
Wireless or Wired Network Connection: Using the included wireless-N adapter or the built-in Ethernet (RJ-45) port, you will be able to interact with BD-Live content, watch instant streaming programs from online providers (such as Netflix/Vudu/Pandora/YouTube), playback contents stored on your home network, and keep the BDP-105 up-to-date with firmware releases to ensure maximum Blu-ray compatibility.
Network Media Sharing: The Oppo BDP-105 can remotely play back music, photo, and video files stored on your Windows PC or NAS (Network Attached Storage) that are connected to the same home network. Your Windows PC or NAS must be DLNA certified or SMB/CIFS compatible.
Video On-Demand (VOD): You can instantly watch movies from Netflix, CinemaNow, and Vudu over the internet using this Blu-ray disc player. You also get access to YouTube Leanback and Pandora Internet Radio.
Note: Video On-Demand requires a home network with a connection speed of at least 2.5 Mbps recommended (10 Mbps for HD content). Video quality and picture size vary and are dependent upon broadband speed and delivery by content provider. Online content may require additional fees and/or PC registration. Available online content may change without notice.
BD-Live: BD-Live is a collection of online interactive features that content providers may include with a Blu-ray Disc movie to enhance your enjoyment of that movie, providing you a compelling new world of extended interactivity. BD-Live includes access to studio-specified Internet sites that provide you the ability to, for example, download current movie trailers or other exclusive content, play movie related games, enhance the content of their disc, chat with other viewers, play games with other BD-Live connected players, and much more. Blu-ray players and movies must both support BD-Live in order to use the technology.
Triple USB (type-A) Ports: The Oppo BDP-105 Blu-ray Disc Player is equipped with three USB ports (1 front/2 rear). The player also includes an external USB dock for easier connection. You can use the USB ports to plug in a USB drive for audio, video, and photo playback. The USB ports are rated to provide 5V and 1000mA (maximum) to power a USB drive; that is sufficient for USB (MSC) thumb drives and flash memory card readers, a USB hard drive may require an external power supply. Supported USB drives can be formatted with the FAT (File Allocation Table), FAT32, or NTFS (New Technology File System) file system.
Note: USB devices such as MP3 players, digital cameras, and mobile phones are not compatible. Not compatible with iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
Start Up/Play Back Time: The Oppo BDP-105 Blu-ray player has a start-up time of approximately 16.1 seconds. It takes approximately 25.7 seconds for a Blu-ray disc to begin playback.
Note: The Start Up/Play Back Time tests were started with the Blu-ray player initially turned off and in standby mode. The Start Up Time test was stopped when the player's Home Menu screen appeared. The Play Back Time test was stopped when the Blu-ray disc began playback.
Gracenote MusicID and VideoID: Music and Video recognition technology and related data are provided by Gracenote. Gracenote is the industry standard in music and video recognition technology and related content delivery. By connecting to Gracenote's global media database over the Internet, the BDP-105 can offer an enriched playback experience by displaying Cover Art, Title, Artist, Genre and other media information for CD, DVD, Blu-ray and a wide range of digital media files. For more information visit www.gracenote.com.
Memory and Automatic Resume: The player automatically remembers the current position when playback is interrupted. Operations such as Stop, Open/Eject, or turning Power off will cause the player to save the current playing position. The position is memorized even after turning off the unit or changing the disc. When the next time the disc with a memorized playing position is played back, the player will recognize the saved playing position. Playback will automatically resume from this saved position. The player can remember playback position for up to 5 discs. When the sixth disc is memorized, the oldest one is replaced.
Note: Some Blu-ray Discs do not support resuming and will always play from the beginning.
Display Dimmer: The Blu-ray player lets you control the display intensity of the front-panel Vacuum Fluorescent Display. You can choose Standard, Dim, or Off.
Screen Saver: The screen saver is designed to minimize burn-in concerns for plasma and CRT display devices. Video output will be turned off after 3 minutes of inactivity.
Wireless Remote Control: The BDP-105 comes with a fully back-lit remote control for ease of use in dark home theaters. With its ergonomic button layout and clear labeling, operating the Blu-ray Disc player is easy. It even offers dedicated buttons to access Netflix and Vudu on-line movie services.
HDMI CEC: HDMI Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI CEC) simplifies your home theater by allowing a single remote control to operate multiple devices through HDMI connection.
Oppo Remote Apps: Oppo offers two free Apps for controlling the BDP-105 with a compatible mobile device. The Oppo MediaControl app lets you completely control the player with your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Android device. The app lets you browse media libraries, control playback of media, and turn the player on and off. If you just need a simple remote control app without the media playback features, you can download the Oppo Remote app for iOS or Android devices. The Blu-ray player and your compatible mobile device must be connected to the same home network.
Note: The Blu-ray player may require a firmware update to be compatible.
External IR: The BDP-105 features a 3.5mm IR input. If the player is to be installed in an equipment cabinet where direct line-of-sight is not available for the remote control you can purchase an external IR Remote Sensor (sold separately) and plug it into the IR input. Then place the sensor head at a location where there is direct line-of-sight to ensure reliable operation.
RS-232C Port: The BDP-105 has an RS-232C control port and can be integrated into most custom home theater control systems.
Hi Eric, Unfortunately not. I too, was hoping that it would work as an outboard dac for playing HDCD wav files from my music server; but it does not. My old EAD 7000 MKIII DAC does decode HDCD files from my pc, so I was a bit disappointed that the Oppo which is a current DAC, does not. The EAD was built in the 90's. On the upside, it does do a really good job with hi def music files that I have gotten from sites such as HDTracks. They are 24/192bit and the Oppo handles those in wav format, and sound great. The oppo also handles DSD files which are even higher resolution and sound fantastic as well. My old dac does not handle the new higher def music that is becoming more and more available so that is why I ended up buying the Oppo. I'm hoping they will eventually provide a firmware update that would allow the 105 to accept HDCD files from an outside source. Plays HDCD discs fine... but I have an extensive pc based (wav files) collection of music and listen constantly. Over 3200 albums, which about 95 or so are HDCD. Being able to only play one HDCD disc at a time is a drag. I couldn't find any modern DACs that provide HDCD decoding. It was a choice between HDCD decoding, or hi rez decoding for me. It is a fantastic Blu Ray Player ! Plays every kind of music type file I can think of from my pc "except" HDCD files. All in all I'm very happy with the OPPO. I've gotten off of the hi-end/costly pre-processor merry go round. I've wasted thousands and thousands of dollars going from one high end pre/processor to another every time new sound formats came out. I've gone to an all analog 5.1 pre-amp, and use the OPPO 105 as my Blu Ray Player, and as my outboard DAC for my pc based music system. VERY versatile player at just over 1K. I'm VERY happy with the price to performance ratio. Figure if something new in sound decoding comes out, I will stick with OPPO and upgrade. Rather spend about 1K, on replacing the player... than buying a new pre/processor at 5 or 6K. [ PAUL A Sep 27, 2014 ]
I have this unit but have no answer to that question. Chuck [ CHARLES F Sep 26, 2014 ]
Yes. Works great. [ Kevin Jun 23, 2014 ]
I don' use it. [ JAMES EDWARD Jun 13, 2014 ]
No. [ MILTON Jun 12, 2014 ]
Sorry I haven't tried. [ JON Jun 11, 2014 ]
Thanks for helping us catch this David. Our presentation did need to be updated. The Features and Specs section has been updated to show that this will allow for control by the app. Here are some further details: Oppo Remote Apps: Oppo offers two free Apps for controlling the BDP-105 with a compatible mobile device. The Oppo MediaControl app lets you completely control the player with your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Android device. The app lets you browse media libraries, control playback of media, and turn the player on and off. If you just need a simple remote control app without the media playback features, you can download the Oppo Remote app for iOS or Android devices. The Blu-ray player and your compatible mobile device must be connected to the same home network. Note: The Blu-ray player may require a firmware update to be compatible. [ Jeff Jan 16, 2014 ] Staff
I am not certain but I believe, there is a new firmware update that make the unit compatible with any smartphone. This was a print add I just don't remember where I read it. This may or may not help, Allen. P.S. I used my wife's email when I set up my account with Crutchfield. [ JANNA Jan 14, 2014 ]
I believe It just needs updating, but not positive.. [ MICHAEL Jan 14, 2014 ]
Sorry David I have Samsung phone and not up on I phones. I do love the Oppo and have had no problems. Chuck [ CHARLES F Jan 14, 2014 ]
I do not know. [ MILTON Dec 29, 2013 ]
I had no problems using the rear HDMI input with a WD TV Play so I suspect the Roku would also work just fine. Every input I've tested so far has worked like a charm. [ JOHN Dec 29, 2013 ]
Don't use roku. But Check the port and firmware. The port could be for output. And update the firmware. [ PETER Dec 29, 2013 ]
I am using my roku thru my 103's rear hdmi without any issues. I do not have a roku connected to my 105 , but it should function the same way. I do not foresee any problems. Enjoy! [ ARMAN Dec 29, 2013 ]
I'm currently using apple TV via the HDMI input with no problems so I assume that Roku would work the same. Good luck! [ ANDREW Dec 29, 2013 ]
Sorry Patrick, I don't have a ROKU 3 so cannot give you an exact answer but my guess would be yes. I have a DVD recorder/VCR connected through the rear HDMI input and it work flawlessly ( you can also take advantage of the OPPO's superior video processing via that route, it then converts the digital signal and does any needed video processing through the OPPO's superior video scaler etc.). Best bet though is to e-mail or call OPPO directly ( they are in the Silicon Valley in California ) and are very responsive to questions from customers or prospective customers. Really the OPPO should be considered the video equivalent of the AV receiver. It can very easily accommodate all of your video inputs and use a single video output to your monitor/TV, all the while using it's superior video processing electronics from all of your input sources and a single remote to control them all. It is very expensive however. But.... it offers audiophile level CD/ Audio DVD playback and has dedicated 7.1 channel output if you wanted to use it as an audio player to a very, very high end audio system. It probably compares to a dedicated 1000 dollar CD player .As well, it incorporates a separate headphone amplifier so if you are into really high end headphones, particularly those that may be difficult for a standard amplifier to drive it can. That feature alone is worth several hundred dollars on top of the other features. If you are less of an audio buff and more into video I believe they may still offer a lesser machine that has less of the audio features but all of the video ones, including the video switching and processing, last I looked they still offered a Oppo BDP-103 for significantly less money. Hope this helps. [ JON Dec 29, 2013 ]
SORROW I CAN'T HELP YOU WITH THAT, BUT OPPO CUSTOMER SERVICE CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION. [ DENNIS J Dec 29, 2013 ]
Hello Patrick: I have a Roku 2 connected to the rear HDMI port on my Oppo BDP-105 and it accepts audio and video perfectly. It even outputs the audio via the coax output to my external DAC. The Roku 3 functions the same and should work just as well. You simply choose "HDMI Back" on the input list on the Oppo Menu and it will work perfectly. Best of luck, Tony [ TONY Dec 29, 2013 ]
