Most high-performance components specialize at doing one or two things really well. Oppo's well-engineered BDP-95 universal Blu-ray player combines reference-quality picture and sound with mind-boggling versatility. It's the last disc player you'll ever need — or want!

A universal player that truly does it all

Whether you're an audiophile, a videophile, or a bit of both, the BDP-95 will let you enjoy your disc collection like never before. It can play pretty much any disc you throw at it. Blu-ray movies — including 3D titles — look simply spectacular, and DVDs aren't far behind. On the audio side, DVD and Blu-ray soundtracks reach new heights, and you'll hear fresh details in all your music, including high-res stereo and multichannel DVD-Audio and SACD discs.

Blu-ray and DVD have never looked better

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-95 features some of the latest and most advanced video circuitry available, like Marvell's Qdeo™ processor. 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.

Superb sound is what really sets this player apart

You can actually get close to this player's picture quality for less money — it's the BDP-95'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-95 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 4 stacked DAC channels for each stereo channel, for vanishingly low distortion and exceptional detail and soundstaging.

Audio and video streaming that needs no apology

Connect the BDP-95's Ethernet port to your home network, or use the convenient built-in Wi-Fi® and enjoy Internet movie and music streaming with quality that will surprise you. For video there's Netflix® along with the web's best-looking movies: high def on-demand titles from Vudu® at 1080p. For music, there's Pandora® Internet radio for casual listening, or try downloading high-res FLAC files and putting them on a disc or thumb drive. You'll be amazed at the lifelike sound.

Built like a tank

In a world of lightweight Blu-ray players, the BDP-95's solid construction is reassuring. Its 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. And the BDP-95 is a pleasure to use, with soft-touch controls on the front panel and one of the best backlit remotes we've seen.

Haven't heard of Oppo?

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-95 is the best-performing player they've ever built. And that's saying a lot.

From our Oppo BDP-95 Universal 3D Blu-ray player review

"The BDP-95 is probably the most reliably enjoyable component I've ever owned. It has worked flawlessly, playing every disc I've thrown at it, including a few that caused other players to stumble. It's not cheap, but when you consider how much it can do, and how well, it's one of the best bargains I know of."

DrHiFi3D from Houston, TX on 3/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You can tell this unit will be simply brilliant in your home theater the minute you open the box. When you lift the BDP-95 you will be impressed with its robust heft. Then you'll notice that the accessories - which includes an HDMI cable in addition to the sturdy remote, batteries, etc. - come in a box instead of a clear plastic bag. Moments later you'll have it connected to your pre-amp/receiver and turned on and the set-up will take scant seconds. Finally, you'll press play on a (3D)Blu-Ray and the picture and sound will astound you. The depth of deep-color and the clarity and sound-staging are awe-inspiring. Buy it.

Pros: Spectacular video quality and superb audio definition and sound-stage.

Cons: Very expensive (but worth it if you watch a lot of Blu-Ray/3D).


Hall B from Stroudsburg, PA on 3/12/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I agonized over the decison to purchase for the better part of 9 months. After reading numerous reviews; I made the decision to get the Oppo. This unit is just fantastic. It is put together like a Russian tank and it perfomrs without any peer. Prior to his unit my three other Blue Ray/3D units were in the $200 to $600.range. This unit is a classic example that you get what you pay for. What really blew me away was how the unit was packaged - there were platstic protectors on all of the analogue ports on the back of unit as well as plastic protectors on the electrical prongs and an ethernet HDMI cable was included. Someone at this company has certaintly done their homework. The set up of the unit is very simple and intiutive. In fact, I made the internet connection to my home router with the minimum amount of fuss. I also want to throw a couple of accolades toward the Cruthcfield orgnaization and thier staff. I have been purchasing stereo equipment since 1972. i have used mail order, botique stereo shops, and large retail outlets. In my opinion Crutchfiled is simply the best. The technical support staff is exceptional and customer satisfaction is a reality not a promise.

Pros: Exceptional picture clarity, sound reproduction and ease of use.

Cons: The price is high but this piece of equipment justifies it !

An Amazing Product

Rick from San Diego, CA on 2/15/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this system solely for the stereo sound. It's not attached to a TV. Boy, and what sound! I bought this because of the fantastic reviews it received from everyone that reviewed it for a stereo sound system. (I have yet to se a negative review.) They were right. Compared to CD players costing many times more, this player simply out-performs them. It now has a happy home in my stereo system. My upgrade mission was accomplished and at a fraction of the cost I initially thought I would have to spend.

Pros: Fantastic sound. Internet connectivity.

Cons: I can't think of any!

Incredible sound

Jennifer G from Florida on 2/12/2013

I bought this player to use with an older analog NAD amplifier and brand-new HD Samsung tv. I didn't want to update everything all at once, and with its wide range of connectors, the Oppo seemed the perfect way to keep the NAD awhile longer. My review focuses on the Oppo's sound quality playing music, because I'm too new to Blu-ray to be able to give valid comparisons. For music, its sound is unbelievable. So far I've listened to classical, jazz, and Pink Floyd, and all are just jaw-droppingly good. And this is for 2.1 listening, as I don't yet have a home theater set-up. SACDs sound great, but ordinary discs are fuller-sounding too. Sharpness I had perceived in some recordings in the brass section, for example, disappears when played on the Oppo. Side by side with my 5-year-old Marantz cd player, it isn't even a fair fight. For the money this player is incredible, because you can legitimately use it not only for video: it can replace your cd player. It has done just that to mine.

Pros: Flexibility, many connection options. Noticeably fuller sound. Great value for the money.


The Best

Bill G from Stuart, FL on 1/31/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just got my Oppo-95 up and running today. OMG what a picture and what sound! My old player was a top of the line LG. I watched the first few minutes of Master and Commander and could not believe the difference. Can't wait until tonight---- I'm watching Top Gun!

Pros: Easy set up and easy Netflex set up.


Well worth the premium price

Coastsider from San Mateo County Coastside, CA on 1/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've always purchased Panasonic DVD/Blu-ray players since my first DVD-RP91 to my most recent DMP-BD55 but for my latest upgrade I was looking for something that could handle everything from DVD's to my collection of DVD-A and SACD discs and since Panasonic never did SACD and has abandoned DVD-A, Oppo seemed the logical choice. The reviews of the BDP-95 were glowing especially in the area of audio reproduction which, since I have spent a great deal of time and effort putting together a great Home Theater sound system using a mix of vintage and contemporary speakers and amps, is very important to me. I was not disappointed. Everything in every format sounds simply amazing with greater detail, cleaner tighter bass, and a better defined sound field than I have ever experienced, and especially with Blu-ray DTS-HD Master Audio and my DVD-A and SACD titles. Setting up the BDP-95 is simple with the aid of the comprehensive Owners Manual and the operation is seamless with instant recognition of the format of the disc inserted, and the ability to play files from a USB thumb drive or eSATA Hard Drive along with Internet connectivity make the Oppo into a mini-media server. The extras, including a USB Wireless adapter and USB extension dock are just icing on the cake. I am extremely pleased with the Oppo BDP-95 and would recommend it or it's successor, the BDP-105 to anyone.

Pros: Solid and well built with simple and transparent operation regardless of media.

Cons: None that I have identified yet other than maybe the price point which I would gladly pay again.

Waited for the best, got the best!

Dr K from New Orleans, La on 1/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ultimately when we all saw that Blu-ray was going to defeat HD-DVD it still took awhile for most to get on board. New technology means new toys and of course competition from brand to brand. If you're an audio/videophile like myself (passionate audio/videophile at that) then you want equipment that is top notch, will last years if taken care of and reflects perfect with your entire system. Instead of jumping on the bandwagon right away, I recently took the dive and chose the Oppo BDP-95. After years of reviewing many models of Blu-ray player, I wasn't keen on the slow load times and features of most players. What sold me was this player not only has an incredibly fast load time but that the player has a 192K audio sampling rate that makes even my old school cds sound warm, crisp and bright. If you love movies AND you love your music too the Oppo is an incrdible piece of machinery for that purpose. I also love the SACD capability and have been diving into many surround mode 5.1 SACD discs. Fantastic! I wish there were more hours in a day just to immerse myself into just the music playback! This unit is for you hands down!

This is by far the best sounding DVD player I have tested. It is easy to use and loads pretty quick. A little pricey but the sound is terrific !




Dave from Albuquerque, NM on 12/24/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this unit to use with McIntoch MX134 and MC206. The analog audio output cannot be beat, and the video is also undicernable from a new McIntosh player costing nearly 10 times as much. Been using it for 8 months with flawless results. Martin Logan Theater center, Klipsh cornerhorns F, Cornwalls S, HeresyII R, and Velodyne HGS18 sub. 70 LED display. All controlled with Logitech 1100 universal remote. We wait for DVD release now instead of going to the theater. Going to buy another for bedroom plasma use.

Pros: Quality of build and reliability are as good as I have seen. Very low price for the value recieved.

Cons: None

Exceeding good expectations

ww from Fort Myers, FL on 12/6/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm not what you would call a video aficionado , but I do enjoy proper presentation and display, and always would want the quality present. I am however, much more sensitive when it comes to the sound of audio and video components which is what directed me towards the Oppo BDP-95. My experience with this unit is very limited at this point, but out of the box, the video and the sound were beyond what I truly expected. Ours is a hobby of extremely diminishing returns, and at times the pursuit of the smallest perfections is beyond pointless. We must learn to be happy with the choices we make, and be able to get lost in the story being told, or the musical performance instead of the way an electronic device "sounds." With that being said, I will say, that the only other CD player I have heard that revealed musical nuances and details such as this was a Merdian a few years ago, and it cost over 4000.00 at the time I believe. There is a burning in or break in period for electronics and speakers of course, but immediately this was noticeable in the Oppo and if it only improves from this point forward, this is an absolute steal in both it's visual and audio presentations. The functionality of the network extras, Netflix, Pandora ect. , all only add to a great design.

Pros: Extremely excellent audio playback. Rugged build quality and internal parts. Proper remote control layout.

Cons: None apparent at this point.

Truly Universal

BURG from Lumberton,NJ on 10/16/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Oppo hit a grand slam with this product! It truly is a universal disc player. The sound and picture quality is revelatory! Compared to other Bluray players this is a real bargain. ESS Technology 32 bit SABRE DACS and Marvel KYOTO G2 QDEO processors in a disc player at this price, UNBELIEVEABLE!

Pros: Very well written operating manual. Backlight light on remote is great! Intuitive and easy to use functions. WiFi connects in seconds. This player is built like a tank!

Cons: I should have bought it sooner!


Big Daddy 661 from Santa clarita ca on 9/13/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So much to say about this product, first of all it is absolutely beautiful, its heavy duty, not that plastic crap. Easy set up, and the anolog option is great as well as amazing sounding. Hdmi sounds really good as well, it made the speakers on my pioner elite sound great. Now my yamaha rx 2010, klipsch rf 7 ?, and Klipsch rc 64 ? came alive with this player, I can not believe that this system was capable of sounding any better than it already did. Tough decision spending 1k on a player, but it is so worth it, go for it you will not regret it one bit. Tech support at crutchfield is also fantastic, thank you very much.

Pros: Beautiful look, sounds and picture quality is bar none. Easy set up.

Cons: None at this point.

Super Nice

BrianP from Duncansville,PA on 8/20/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What I like, it updated it's firmware after I set up the wi-fi, it plays CD's using pure audio along with my receiver(awesome) and the BD on my plasma TV is beautiful.

Pros: Solid as a rock

Cons: NONE

oppo 95

dave from st. louis, mo on 8/8/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for 2 channel audio only, as I haven't upgraded the rest of my stereo outfit to multichannel yet. Setup was easy enough, and it's worked flawlessly. The sound is great, I was upgrading from an older cd player, so it's night and day for me. every cd (sacd or not) stops you in your tracks - the sound is that good.

Pros: solid build. great packaging and instructions. straightforward setup. fantastic sound.

Cons: need to attach tv to do setup - the player itself doesn't have the menu capability. luckily these lcd jobs are light as a feather, so lugging one into the room wasn't so bad.

Oppo Happy

PM from Phila.,Pa. on 8/6/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was going to go for the cambridge BUT...... in the past and After speaking to Buzz, haveing owned OppO in the past (cousin now has that system and am glad to say it still is doing the job VERY Nicely.) The BDP-95 seamed the way to go.Well built and packed & shipped.No real problems to set up (Please always RTFI this will save every body time.).I'm Very happy both in the Multi Ch. as well as the 2Ch.Audio out so much so that I don't use my PS Audio DacIII to listen to this player .Asfar as the Pix Well the TV It is hooked to is only 720p so it would be injust to make a call outside that it it all you could want or need for video dvd and bluray. To be honest I use this machine for 99% Music ( Music video ) and am replaceing a Denon 2930I(bought from CrutchFeild ) as well as an NAD T 535 Both wonderful machines and are still in service in my home on other systems. See pros and con for other info. If you are looking for a do all Machine You can't go wrong with OppO all their stuff is Just Right!!!!!! Also almost forgot I love the internet LAN connect I live by Pandora.Great when you just want some musicand don't have to keep getin'up to change the disc.. hope this helps some of you make up your minds. Don't forget The great folks at Crutchfield always good to know their up on all that they sell.

Pros: Great Audio!!!!....OH,Did say GREAT AUDIO????!!!!! Pix wonderful to!!!!! Bluray cool. Easy set up. internet connect to Pandora.

Cons: This may sound a bit much BUT...ALL my other uni-Players have an auto off setup to turn unit off the unit after 45min. off none use. This would have been a nice feature, I use it to listen to music and fall asleep listening( an OLD Thing I guess????). I do wonder ifthis could be addressed via LAN upgrade.

Univerally Great

Jimmyj from Raleighwood on 7/18/2012

Had been lusting after one of these players ever since they hit the market. Wanted a Universal player to replace my old Marantz unit that did not play Blu-ray discs and that could decode onboard all the hi rez audio codecs. The Oppo 95 fits the bill. I am hearing new things on DVD's and BD's that I thought I knew cold. My unit is still burning in and is currently not as warm sounding as my old Marantz but the Oppo is revealing more detail and a wider soundstage. Love the fact that the Oppo can play many digital audio file types including RR HRx data discs. I did however find a file type that it will not currently play and that is DSD files using a DSF file extension. Hopefully Oppo can add that capability with a firmware update. One other thing that I found as a negative on this unit is the relay type switching that goes on inside the unit for whatever reason with loud clicks that are somewhat disconcerting. These don't come thru the speakers but are just mechanical noises from inside the unit. The remote is a little clunky but fully functional. You have to push the buttons really hard to get them to send the signal. Overall I am very impressed with the Oppo 95.

Pros: Almost universal disc and digital a/v file playing/decoding. Very good sound and video.

Cons: Immediately found a high resolution audio file type that the Oppo would not play. Relay switching inside the unit is noisy. Remote is big and clunky with stiff keys.

Wonderful disc player

PeterK from Wellington FL on 7/16/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had heard great things about the Oppo BDP-95 as an audio player, my only reason for getting it. I'm not much of a video fan (maybe I'll get into it someday...). My 20 y.o. Sony CD changer was dying (yes, I hold onto equipment for a long time.) I do have a respectable system (Vandersteen II sigs with Vandersteen 2 WQ subwoofer, NAD 3300 amp (yes, 20 years old), Cambridge Audio DAC Magic used for CD play and streaming from my Mac. Anyway, the Oppo has made such a difference, even compared with the rather new and well respected DAC Magic, that I'm going to listen to ALL of my many CD's again. My few SACD's sound breathtaking with an amazing combination of ambience and detail. My Reference Recordings HrX 176 kHz 24 bit DVD sampler is awe-inspiring. But, what's just as impressive is the sound the Oppo can wring out of my old discs. I am finding some CD's actually bearing comparison with high-resolution audio. I've only begun to explore using the BDP-95 as a music server. It clearly works using a flash drive. it will not handle my many ALAC (Apple Lossless) files. But, it does so much so well, and I haven't even mentioned, hey, it's also a video player!

Pros: Amazing sound quality via 2-channel analog outputs. Great versatility. Easy to set up.

Cons: Some fan noise (but I'm sitting six feet away from it), won't play ALAC files (which will play if changed to FLAC, which is easy).

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had the oppo for more than six months and haven't had a speck of trouble with it. HDMI video and audio are superb, as is the analog audio. Mechanical operation is smooth and soundless.

Pros: Superb quality audio/video

Cons: None


Mellomane from Oxford, OH on 7/3/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Oppo-BDP-95 is an outstanding universal disc player that is amazingly affordable! Not only does it play virtually every type of CD-sized disc, but it does so in an exemplary fashion. The sound is first-rate, as is the video, and the ability of this player to track even damaged discs is superb. Very highly recommended.

Pros: Plays virtually every type of CD-sized disc, and very well. Sound and video are both first-rate. Tracking ability is superb.

Cons: None

Great BluRay Player

Leo J from Minnesota on 7/3/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you want audiophile sound and stunning video this is the BluRay player for you. My wife was skeptical that this was worth the money until we got it setup and she watched one of her favorite movies. This player is worth every penny.

Pros: Audiophile sound with stunning video. Very user friendly setup wizard. Good networking capabilities.

Cons: None

Great for the audiophile

BradC from Goddard, KS on 6/5/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this mainly for the music quality. This is a great deal if you are looking for audiophile grade equipment. My CDs, SACDs, and DVD-As have never sounded so natural. I would rank the SACD and DVD-A playback quality to be as good as analog vinyl. The CD playback sounds more natural than any I have listened to yet. Almost as good as Vinyl.. or at least as good as you can get. Many audiophile grade players will cost you $500 to $2000 higher than this player and you won't get BluRay. Don't bother if you don't have a high end system, there are other OPPO players that will give you just as good of Video as this. I listening to all my CDs again for the first time. You want this only if you are serious about great.

Pros: Awesome music playback. Plays everything... I mean everything. Great video quality and great upscaling of DVDs. Very good quality build. This thing is really heavy. Comes with wireless dongle and HDMI... use only for video. You want analog cables for audio playback.

Cons: Nothing

Saving for a second Oppo BDP-95!

Scott V from Rochester, New York on 5/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My wife and I have been waiting to purchase the Oppo, and it was surely worth the price of admission! As an audio engineer and producer, the sound for television and for audio playback, ie SACD, HDCD, DVD-A, Old Friend Red Book CD, etc were more important than the DVD playback and visuals, and this unit is a beast! Did I mention? ANALOG OUTPUTS! We are especially looking forward to Region 2 DVD playback, as we own many across the pond manufacture DVD's. Honestly, I am still sorting the unit out, it's going to be fun! (this is uncharted territory for me, so it will be an adventure)

Pros: High grade build, analog outputs, all the goodies and XLR's.

Cons: Other than the "light" standard one year warranty, none noted...

Oppo BDP-95

Heatmiser from Chicago on 5/22/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you are looking for a blu-ray player with stellar audio performance for under 2k, stop your search! I have had this player for a couple of weeks now and I am very impressed, especially with its audio capabilities. The video of course is top notch, but I was looking for a player with balanced outputs. I did a side by side comparison, and was overwhelmed by the difference in audio clarity. Not to say the audio through the HDMI was anything short of excellent, but I hooked up those balanced cables to my Integra DHC-80.3 and...Wow! I can't believe how different, and better the music sounded. This was my first time using balanced outputs other than having them link my amp and processor, and now I'm hooked. If you have a processor with balanced inputs, and 1k to spend on a top shelf universal player you owe it to yourself to take the BDP -95 for a test drive.

Pros: Build quality, ESS Sabre Dac's, Balanced outputs, Plays every format

Cons: None that I can find

Worth te money

JT from Las Vegas, NV on 5/12/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was using my PS3 to listen the SACDs and thought music sounded great on my Rotel/B&W setup. Then I played tem on the Oppo via RCA cables. Unbelievable difference! The soundstage opened up, tere were more layers and focus. Crisper top end and tighter bass. The midrange has more punch. Video is also better than the Panasonic I was using before. Images are sharper and colors appear fuller and more accurate. Blacks are ink black and whites are natural. Simply put, it's worth the money if you have the equipment to take advantage of what this thing can do.

Pros: Build quality, incredibly accurate sound and video reproduction. Very fast load times and ability to play any format out there.

Cons: None.

Rick E. from Palm Spprings, CA on 5/4/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Amazing player! I was hesitant to spend the money, but now I'm glad I did. The machine was easy to set up, and everything worked even better than I expected it to. It auto updated on its own, and worked right out of the box with very little need to consult the instruction manual. The unit is solidly built, and it appears that it's built to last. The unit has discrete surround sound audio outputs, which most other units don't have, so it's perfect for my home theater. Picture quality is better than I've seen on most other players, and the sound quality is amazing!

Pros: Easy to set up. Works right out of the box. Everything is included. Instruction manual is well written and easy to understand. Everything is explained in terms that are not necessary to be interpreted.


By Far the BEST!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What can I say that hasn't been said already? I am truly hearing my music (CDs and .wav files) for the first time! I am completely and thourghly impressed by the BDP-95. The only thing (which probably isn't even worth mentioning) it doesn't have or do perfectly is a replay button for DVD/Blu-Ray playback like Sony has. That said my only regret is not buying TWO of them. Would be nice to have in my bedroom! :-) Have a 2 TB hard drive hooked into it with all my music. Very intuitively layed out! And once again excellent service Crutchfield!!

Pros: Too many to list!! Would have to say QUALITY. (16 LBS!)

Cons: No DVD 10 second replay button. That's IT!

Excellent Bluray player

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

worth every penny the most quality i ever seen in a bluray player. It does it all It,s is so much better than the yamaha bluray player I returned to crutchfield because of disc compatibility. I would recomend the OPPO if fact I want to buy another one but Im still testing My OPPO 95 it is great so far.

Pros: To many to list Every point of the unit is quality

Cons: none what so ever

You can allmost taste the music, its that good.

Bill Coyne from Lawrence, Ma on 4/26/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A regular receiver and good speakers is all you need now with your Oppo-95 to have a system that sounds like it cost a fortune. The sound is so good you can almost taste it. Spend hours listening to your old collection of music with wonder. This is the best purchase I could have made.

Pros: The sound is incredible!

Cons: none

This Product Delivers !!!

JoyceS from Littleton, CO on 4/25/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I read scads of reviews before deciding which blue-ray to purchase, and they were overwhelmingly positive. Thought it was almost too good to be true, but decided to take a chance and check it out. It is well worth the money and delivers in spades. I am not a geek or technically savvy with electronics, but my son is, and he was blown away. In addition to a 5-star product, it was a very pleasant experience dealing with Crutchfield. I would not have bought this product from anyone else. I will buy any and all future electronics from them.

Pros: Feature-packed, user-friendly for non-geeks, best value for the money, a great investment, would recommend to anyone

Cons: None

Even the packaging is unique

Tom S. from La Center, WA on 4/24/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After reading all positive reviews of this unit, I decided to replace an earlier all in one BD player with this one. Upon receipt, I was surprised at the way it was packaged. Never seen anything like it from other manufacturers. Kudos have to go to the engineers who thought out the design of the BDP-95, both in connectivity and features. Extremely well done. Since I primarily listen to music, I was curious as to what the 'warm sound' claimed by other users was all about. OPPO has somehow managed to get a sound quality that mimics LP's, only more detailed. Most players can be unkind to lesser quality CD's and DVD's. Using the sound quality against the DENON DCD A100, I rate the audio on the OPPO as 'just inside audiophile's doorstep', where the DENON (although costing much more and only plays CD's and SACD's) is unparalleled. The OPPO, as in other higher end components, can really be appreciated when used with components of this caliber. If you want 'just good enough', this is not the player for you. But if you are looking for a high quality all in one player which will deliver near breath taking sound, the OPPO has to be the only choice.

Pros: Clean looking front panel. Excellent connectivity, and seriously well thought out featrures. Well worth the price for performance of this quality.

Cons: User manual doesn't list the included accessories. You 'have to hunt them down' within the manual. Not sure why the USB extension is made the way it is.

A True Bargain!

J. Bach from Northern CA on 4/2/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In these days, $1,000 might not seem like much of a "bargain," but what one gets for that amount of money really is a bargain! This Oppo unit replaces a separate SACD player (Sony 5400ES) and a separate Blu-ray (Sony 550ES). It is audibly and visually superior to both. Multi-channel SACDs have more details and warmth, while the video is more detailed and realistic. I never thought a universal player could offer such uncompromising audio AND video. I love it!

Pros: impeccable sound extraordinary video very fast load times highly customizable sound and picture quality solid build quality

Cons: Resume Play is nice when the disc is in the player, but it's a little annoying to have it find that same spot if the disc is ejected and played again at a later time--I'd prefer that it start at the beginning again. A minor niggle compared to the pros! (Oh, I suppose a headphone jack would be nice, too.)

Oppo BDP-95

Gregory from New York on 3/28/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Superb audiophile gear for people who understand meaning of the high end sound. Picture is fantastic too.Unfortunately my 40" SAMSUNG is to old and has only 1080i. Nevertheless the difference between regular up-converted DVD and Blue Ray is visible. Setup is friendly, fast and easy, nice presentation of User Manual. Bought from Crutchfield. Very satisfied with shipping and secure package. Highly recommended.

Pros: Deep, warm and clear sound, feeling "stage". Picture is natural and detailed. Fast loading. Price is reasonable for this class of equipment.

Cons: The "alphabetical" function on the remote while using to enter Netflix movies is to complicate. I wish to find special some regular wireless full alphabetical keyboard, compatible with BDP-95.

Listen to your favorite music again for the first time

Charlie S. from Central New Jersey on 3/7/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have my OPPO 95 connected so I can listen to two channel stereo through the player's 32 bit ESS Sabre DAC's. I bypassed my 140W/channel receiver's processors. I hear detail in my music I never heard before. Now I'm playing 94Khz/24bit FLAC audio files and the sound is awesome. The beauty of this player is it's ability to decode multiple CD formats and I have some DVD-Audio and DTS 5.1 Audio discs. Oh yea - It's also a 3D blue -ray player!! The OPPO 95's 7.1 analog outputs has allowed me to use my older surround sound receiver, in effect, saving me thousands of dollars. Great product - Thank you OPPO and Crutchfield.

Pros: Sound and Video processing, ability to play all audio CD formats,

Cons: Face plate not available in candy apple red.

Oppo's top notch to details and support

Lee V from Upstate NY on 2/22/2012

My second Oppo my 1st was SD the 970, the least costly of the line and we still use it. The PQ on that alone was the best I had ever seen.Now with the new Oppo line, you are buying probably the last dvd player you will ever need. Use of the analog ports and the dacs if you want the best it has. Even with Blu ray movies, and now BD music, it's a bet your friends will want one too. Teriffic bang for the buck, unbeatable in cost for features.

Pros: built in dacs for analog stage, beautiful sound stage / teriffic picture quality and control with the qdeo chip

Cons: none I can find

An Outstanding Source Component!

Steve from Prospect Hts, IL on 2/10/2012

I have owned my 95 for almost a year now, $ for $, it may be the best money I have "invested" in my AV hobby. I utilize the 32 Bit ESS SABRE DAC's inside the 95 via the analog outputs to my processor. If you plan on using the HDMI output on the 95 for audio as well as video, which will bypass these DAC's & will use the DAC's inside you processor/receiver instead, save yourself $500 and get the 93. I can not say a negative word about the 95 OR Oppo (this is my first Oppo product). I was one of the early owners last year, Oppo was AWESOME with their responsiveness with our input & concerns. Oppo provided quick beta firmware updates, and ultimately official updates. I could go on and on... I sold my Marantz reference 2 channel SACD player and I just had revisit my disc collection again (through the 95). For me, that is the highest rating I can give. Oh - video is top notch and performance with FLAC and WAV files blows me away! A lot of enjoyment for around 1K. . .

Pros: Audio quality, versatility, Oppo support


Great Player!

Paul from Rowland Heights, CA on 2/7/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great player which will play almost everything. Output options will not let you down. Very solid and well built. This is definitely not a common universal player you see out there.



Oppo BDP-95

Dalen from Shoreview, MN on 2/6/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Oppo's attention to sound quality is what makes this disc player surpass the others at this price. BNC outputs on a disc player under 1k; you know they mean business. The Rotel power supply coupled with simple, audiophile grade circuit components with low noise configuration make an exquisite internal. Hefty build and, contemporary look, display and easy menu, exceptional remote, great cables; all standard issue. Definitely a Ferrari at a Lexus price. Video is as haute as one can currently achieve in consumer product. Some rack mounts would be nice. I feel this Oppo is par to Canadian Bryston in quality and value, not as long on warranty.

Pros: You wont find better audio at twice its price.

Cons: No factory rack mounts, that's it.

Old School Meets New School

DaveA from Southern PA on 2/3/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Oppo is a company after my own heart. Their BDP-95 Universal Player has most of the latest technology but surprisingly also includes some late technology. For those of us that invested in surround sound processors before HDMI connections started to appear, Oppo has given us the ability to take advantage of the latest audio formats with the inclusion of 7.1 analog audio outputs! For us audiophiles this product is a dream come true. With its reference DAC's, balanced (along with unbalanced) outputs, HDMI along with digital and usb connections the BDP-95 is truly versatile. Not to mention its ability to play just about every disc format. There are limits to the type of computer files the unit can play but there are ongoing changes with those formats that could be addressed in future firmware upgrades. Settings for video and audio are numerous so you can fine tune the player to match your display, components and speakers. Highly recommended for its versatility and high end video and sound quality.

Pros: Versatile connections and disc playback. Build quality. Reference digital to analog converters and video processor. Customer service

Cons: Limits with computer file-type playback.

Absolutely the best player for the money

MattG from Dayton, OH on 11/14/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I don't write reviews, but I thought I'd share with you my experience with this player. First off, Crutchfield has been nothing short of exceptional in every way. I have ordered several high ticket items and have had a fantastic experience each time. I'd been shopping for a GOOD blu-ray player that would be able to produce exceptional 2 channel audio as well. This clearly blew away everything else I had tried including Denon - of which I have been a huge fan of over the years, Marantz, and Cambridge Audio. The packaging was really well done. So getting everything out of the box and set-up took very little time. I'm most impressed with the 7.1 analog outputs. The sound from movies and music is just SOOOOO much better with this configuration. You know from pulling the player out of the box you've got something jet feels like a quality machine. The load times are nice and fast and it has read every disc I've thrown at it without issue. I look forward to many years of great use from this Oppo. I would be hard pressed to go back to the Denon machines at this price point - even having owned much of their gear for the last 15 years. Sit down, relax and enjoy every aspect of your favorite movies and music. Cheers! M.

Pros: Build quality, ease of remote use, easy set-up, stunning picture, amazing audio

Cons: It was expensive - but worth it

Disc Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The Oppo BDP-95 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE (DL)
CD CD-Audio, SACD, HDCD, CD-R, CD-RW, Kodak Picture CD

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.

  • Better Picture Quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
  • Better Sound Quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, and uncompressed 7.1 channel PCM.
  • Much Greater Storage Capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
  • Backward Compatible: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.

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-95 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: The tested Oppo BDP-95 contained firmware version BDP9x-52-0707. Immediate firmware upgrade (ver. BDP9x-57-0917) was available. 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-95 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-95 supports AVCHD playback from DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs.

DivX Plus HD: The Oppo BDP-95supports 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-95 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-95 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 your to enter a 4-digit password before the disc will play back.

Video Section

Rigid Chassis Construction: Built around a heavy gauge steel chassis, sculptured aluminum faceplate, and center-mounted tray, the BDP-95 is designed to impress as well as to provide a stable base for the highest quality reproduction of your favorite audio/video media.

Qdeo by Marvell: The BDP-95 incorporates Marvell's Kyoto-G2 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-95 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-95 offers enhancement options including video noise reduction, compression artifact reduction, intelligent color, contrast, detail and edge enhancements.

Dual HDMI v1.4a Outputs: The BDP-95 is equipped with two HDMI output ports and offers the most versatile installation options. You do not have to upgrade your A/V receiver to a 3D model in order to enjoy 3D. One HDMI output of the BDP-95 can be connected to a 3D TV and the other can be connected to a pre-3D HDMI v1.1-v1.3 A/V receiver. For projector users, you can connect one output to a projector for home theater use and the other to a TV for casual viewing. For a multi-room installation the BDP-95 can output audio and video to two 3D or 2D TVs simultaneously. Both HDMI outputs support 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 1080p/24Hz video signals.

Note: The player also contains a component (480i/480p/720p/1080i) and composite (480i only) video output.

Full HD 1080p Output: The BDP-95 features user selectable video output resolutions, including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and up to 1080p 50/60Hz.

True 24p Video: 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-95 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 Up-Conversion: Per-pixel motion-adaptive de-interlacing and advanced scaling transforms the standard definition image on DVDs to near high definition video quality. Additional Qdeo video processing options help to deliver a clearer, smoother, and true-to-life picture free of noise and artifacts.

Source Direct Mode: For users who wish to use an external video processor, high-end audio/video receiver or display, the BDP-95 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
PAL DVD 576i
Most Blu-ray Movies (film source) 1080p or 1080p/24Hz
Most Blu-ray TV shows or Concerts (video-source) 1080i
SACD and DVD-Audio 1080i

3D-Ready: The Oppo BDP-95 lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. There are three 3D output settings.

  • Auto: Automatically outputs 3D if supported both by the disc content and the display. The player automatically checks for the existence of 3D content on the disc and the 3D compatibility of the TV or projector. If both are qualified, the player sends 3D video from its HDMI output terminals, otherwise only 2D video is sent out.
  • Forced: Always outputs 3D video format for 3D Blu-ray discs. You might experience a black screen (no video output) if your TV is not 3D compatible.
  • Off: Always outputs 2D video format, even when 3D video exists on the disc. This guarantees the video quality if your TV is not 3D compatible, or some necessary part (such as the 3D glasses) is missing.

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.

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-95 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-95 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-95 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:

  • Aspect Ratio Modes: 4:3 Letterbox, 4:3 Pan and Scan, 16:9 Wide, and 16:9 Wide/Auto
  • Zoom Modes: 1:1 (no zooming), Stretch/Compress, Full Screen, or Under Scan.

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.

Audio Section

High-Quality Sound: Thanks to the high performance DAC chips, the toroidal power supply, high quality parts, and engineering, the Oppo BDP-95 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-95 uses two ES9018 DAC chips; one for the 7.1-channel output, and another for the dedicated stereo output.

Toroidal Power Supply: Custom designed and built by Rotel, the toroidal power transformer offers superior power efficiency and much lower exterior magnetic field over traditional laminated steel core transformers. The BDP-95's toroidal linear power supply provides a very clean and robust power source to the critical audio components.

Analog Outputs: The Oppo BDP-95 is fitted with unbalanced stereo RCA outputs, XLR balanced stereo outputs, and 7.1ch RCA analog outputs.

  • Unbalanced Stereo RCA Output: The BDP-95 features a dedicated 2-channel analog RCA output with specially optimized ES9018 DAC and output driving stages. Each output is driven by 4 DAC channels stacking together to achieve even greater audio performance.
  • XLR Balanced Stereo Output: The balanced output features a true differential signal path all the way from the DAC to the 3-pin XLR connector. By transmitting a pair of differential signals, the balanced output provides better common-mode noise rejection and improves signal quality.
  • 7.1Ch Analog Output: Individual analog 7.1ch surround RCA outputs are ideal to connect to a 7.1ch or 5.1ch surround sound system. Powered by the ES9018 Sabre³² Reference DAC, the BDP-95 delivers an incredible and immersive multi-channel sound stage.

Digital Outputs: For simple and easy connection to more traditional A/V receivers, the BDP-95 features both optical and coaxial outputs for digital audio.

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.

  • Dolby TrueHD: Dolby TrueHD delivers lossless studio master quality audio designed specifically for high definition entertainment. The BDP-95 supports bit-stream output of Dolby TrueHD via its HDMI 1.4a output. It can also internally decode Dolby TrueHD into LPCM and output via HDMI or the 7.1ch analog audio output terminals. Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus audio formats are also supported.
  • DTS-HD Master Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio delivers an auditory experience that matches the lifelike images of high-definition video with up to 7.1ch that are bit-for-bit identical to the studio master. The BDP-95 supports bit-stream output of DTS-HD Master Audio. It can also internally decode DTS-HD Master Audio and output via HDMI or the 7.1ch analog audio output terminals. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and DTS Digital Surround are also supported.

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
Bitstream LPCM Bitstream LPCM
LPCM 2ch LPCM 2ch LPCM 2ch LPCM 2ch LPCM 2ch 2ch
LPCM 5.1ch LPCM 5.1ch LPCM 5.1ch LPCM 2ch LPCM 2ch 5.1ch
LPCM 7.1ch LPCM 7.1ch LPCM 7.1ch LPCM 2ch LPCM 2ch 7.1ch
Dolby Digital Dolby Digital LPCM 5.1ch Dolby Digital LPCM 2ch 5.1ch
Dolby Digital Plus Dolby Digital Plus LPCM up to 7.1ch Dolby Digital LPCM 2ch up to 7.1ch
Dolby TrueHD Dolby TrueHD LPCM up to 24-bit/192kHz 7.1ch Dolby Digital LPCM 2ch up to 7.1ch
DTS DTS LPCM up to 7.1ch DTS LPCM 2ch up to 5.1ch
DTS-HD High Resolution DTS-HD High Resolution LPCM up to 7.1ch DTS LPCM 2ch up to 7.1ch
DTS-HD Master Audio DTS-HD Master Audio LPCM up to 24-bit/192kHz 7.1ch DTS LPCM 2ch up to 7.1ch

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.

  • LT/RT: Left Total/Right Total. The center and surround channels are mixed into the two front channels according to the LT/RT matrix. A Dolby Pro Logic receiver will decode the two-channel audio into surround audio.
  • Stereo: This mode down-mixes multi-channel audio to 2-channel stereo output. For original stereo content the output will not change. For original multi-channel content the surround and center channels will be mixed with the left and right front channels. Recommended for use with TV sets or stereo receiver/amplifiers.
  • 5.1Ch: This mode enables 5.1ch decoded audio output. The number of actual output channels depends on the disc. If the source content has more channels, the surround back channels will be mixed into the surround channels.
  • 7.1Ch: This mode enables 7.1ch decoded audio output. The number of actual output channels depends on the disc. For 6.1ch contents, the left and right surround back speakers will both output the same surround back audio channel.

Speaker Configuration: In the Speaker Configuration menu you can configure speaker settings such as speaker distance, speaker size, crossover frequency, and trim level.

  • Test Tone: Test tone is a special group of artificially-created sounds that are used to test your audio speaker system and help to identify any wiring faults.
  • Speaker Size: The speaker size parameter sets bass filtering control for the speakers. The options are:
    • Large: Bass frequencies are passed to the speakers.
    • Small: Bass frequencies are not passed to the speakers to reduce possible distortion. If the subwoofer is available, bass frequencies are redirected to the subwoofer.
    • On (for subwoofer only): Specifies that a subwoofer is available
    • Off: Speaker for the corresponding position does not exist. Audio for the missing speaker is redirected to other speakers or discarded if redirection is not possible.
  • Crossover: When a speaker size is set to "Small", bass information below the selected crossover frequency (40/60/80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz) is not passed to the speaker to reduce possible distortion; and if a subwoofer is available, the bass information will be redirected to the subwoofer.
  • Speaker Distance: The speaker distance parameters set delay control for the corresponding audio channel. The delay is used to compensate for the audio time difference caused by the placement of speakers. The speaker distance can be set from 0 to 60'.
  • Trim Level: The speaker trim level parameters sets the volume of each individual channel. The trim level can be set to +/- 10dB in 0.5dB increments. Channel trim is generally not required since most A/V receivers have the capability to adjust.

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.
