Multiregion Blu-ray Disc player with 3D Disc playback and built-in Wi-Fi
This player has been UNLOCKED to play both Blu-ray region A/B/C, as well as DVD region 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. (regionfree) as a result the manufacturer warranty is void. All defects will be handled by us please email us with any issues and repairs.
Switching between the Blu-ray zones is performed using the original remote control. The DVD region is selected automatically.
The BDP-103 is the latest consumer-level Universal Blu-ray player from Oppo. This is a player that will play back every disc (just about) that you've bought even if the format is dead (no HD-DVD though). This means SACD and DVD-A lovers can still enjoy their legacy discs without having to resort to a lesser player. The BDP-103, however, has really made some huge gains in the video department. While the last player was 3D capable, the BDP-103 sports Dual-core SoC and Marvell Qdeo processors with 4K upscaling. On top of that, the BDP-103 can convert your 2D content to 3D so that you get the maximum use out of your 3D display.
Networking is always important and Oppo has included not only wired but wireless streaming. This allows for App control plus access to pre-loaded Netflix, VUDU, Film Fresh, Pandora, and YouTube. The Netflix streaming allows for the highest possible quality with 1080p video support and 5.1 audio. Cord-cutters can rejoice as the new Oppo BDP-103 is looking to become the new hub of your content world.
The front sports not only a USB input but an HDMI input that doubles as an MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) input. This makes connecting your portable devices much easier. You can even connect set-top boxes or network streaming devices to the BDP-103 and take advantage of the Oppo's superior video processors. Flipping the player around and you'll find both more and less than you'd expect. The Oppo BDP-103 sports dual HDMI outputs and a second HDMI input. There is an Ethernet input for a wired connection. Coaxial and Optical digital audio outputs are on board as are 7.1, RCA-style, analogue audio outputs. These outputs can be configured for 7.1, 5.1, or 2.0 output.
Two additional USB inputs allows for a multitude of connected devices (we could imagine at least five possibilities) making the Oppo BDP-103 not only a top of the line Blu-ray player but a standalone video processor. RS-232 and IR connections make it possible for custom installers and power users to easily integrate the Oppo BDP-103 into their universal remote system.
What is missing on the back of the Oppo BDP-103 is any sort of analogue video output. There is a a composite video output labeled "DIAG" but this is just to use the on-screen menu when there is no media playback. This is not Oppo's fault. As we reported previously, the AACS stipulates that "No Licensed Player that passes Decrypted AACS Content to analog video outputs may be manufactured or sold by Adopter after December 31, 2013." Oppo, instead of having to deal with defeating the analogue outputs in a few more months, has just omitted those video outputs.
Overview of the changes and enhancements:
These features are the same as for the BDP-93:
•Dual HDMI Output

•Subtitle and On Screen Display shift, vertical stretch zoom for Constant Image Height projectors
•Online services: •Netflix (upgraded to support 1080p, 5.1 audio, subtitles) (paid service not available in all areas)

•for the BDP-105 only: •asynchronous USB input
•optical and coaxial input
•no fan, unlike the BDP-95
•in-house power supply. The unit is taller, the linear power supply is more isolated from the rest of the player, the audio board is two separate boards (allows for more natural airflow) and there are vents on the top and rear panel of the player.
•OPPO says: "The BDP-105 retains the BDP-95's very detailed and accurate sound, and the performance measurements are almost identical to the BDP-95. In order to maintain the extremely high performance of the BDP-95 while adding new audio features including the headphone amplifier and the USB DAC input, we utilize two separate boards for the multi-channel and stereo sections. This results in increased cost and manufacturing complexity, but enables us to better route the signals, power and ground so we can ensure a high level of performance."

•No component video (recent AACS licensing kills component video for Blu-ray)
•No aspect ratio setups for 4:3 TVs
