Is there a musical bluray-player? Replacing the Oppo BDP-105.

Hello!
I'm new here but is a longtime lurker.

I own an Oppo BDP-105 and setting it up correctly will only get you so far, and it always got that super detailed overanalytical sound from the expensive DAC.

I'm thinking of replacing it with the cheaper BDP-103 model since people say it's the better one in tunedem.

So I'm asking you guys, should I go for it, or does anybody know a better bluray-player I can get instead to connect to my Boazu? Also it would be nice if it can play many types of files via USB.

Thanks. I’m looking forward to your reply.

Owned a Oppo 105, and it's quite good. BUT you need to adjust ALL settings correctly by using tune dem.
Took some time...

Some of the stuff you should check befor getting into details.

- Audio Processing: Front Left/Right and NOT Down-mixed Stereo
- And set Dynamic Range Control to OFF
- Front Left och Front Right should be large
It's all about musical understanding!

Thanks for the input!

I have already tried the ones you mention and I agree with setting the Audio Processing to Front Left/Right.
Since it's a mess without it, though changing the Dynamic Range Control to OFF never sounded right to me.
The Speaker Configuration has always been set to Stereo instead of 7.1 since it's used in a stereo only system so that might already bypass the DRC!? EDIT: Never mind.. DRC OFF is better.

Feel free to post the rest of the settings if you want, (changing settings is always cheaper than buying a new player)
or tell what you got instead of the Oppo for playing bluray/dvd.

Thanks again.
