    Have a 103D here used mainly for streaming video and the occasional Bluray.
    Wanted a "video squeezebox" and this is it.

    Streaming Flac and hires music files from the Oppo into a Dac can be superb sounding...can spit out DSD to a suitable Dac too.
    "Different" but not better or worse than my Transporter into the same Dac to be honest...prefer the sound from the Transporter though and I get to use Roon with it, so that's my daily driver for music.

    BTW I watch Netflix from my Oppo...my Telly has it too as well as being able to cast from my phone 'n tablet.
    Compared them of a wet Sunday afternoon and the Opoo's implementation is MUCH better. Seriously...much.
    Again...its that thing of doing the same thing "on paper" but quality will always out?

    Oppo's are a helluva piece of kit, seriously...they cure that nagging feeling that maybe you COULD do better?
    With Oppo kit....no you can't.
    Like buying a Leica camera... not the cheapest, but, you know...

    I can confirm the price is £599.00 inclusive of VAT.

    We've got F8Creates looking at this as we speak
    No worries, Hamish will sort it out - and he has. It's showing as £599 now, using Google Chrome as a browser

    Nice bit of kit. I may consider one in the new year, as an upgrade to the Sony player I'm currently using, shown here: https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/b...yers/bdp-s6700

    It only upscales to 4K (but offers superb performance for the money), so I'd imagine that the Oppo would trump it?

    Hi Marco

    The new OPPO UDP-203 will for sure trump your Sony BD player!

    In my experience it’s HDR that makes the bigger difference with the new UHD formats, but then not all 4K UHD discs are created equal.

    For example, if you compare the “Oblivion” 1080p to 4K UHD disc, you might wonder what the fuss is about. But do the same with “The Revenant” and you’ll be picking your jaw up of the floor.

    Hi All

    OPPO have emailed to say the price of the UDP-203 is likely to change due to currency fluctuations and US pricing being confirmed.

    Will update as soon as we know more.
