    My Oppo 203 was given the Oppomod.com treatment on Monday. Took around an hour to install but only because the Furutech FI-06 R IEC had to be modified to fit through the rear panel.

    The before internal picture, BD-ROM stabiliser and silver power cables had been installed a few weeks ago:




    Original PSU out, MR/MZ internal chip and Arctic 50x50x1mm thermal pad fitted:




    Oppomod 203 SE LPM with circuit breaker installed:




    The all-important lit yellow LED showing power reaching the circuits:




    Furutech IEC and JCM Audio AC Line Purifier fitted. Took a punt on the JCM device having read about it on a French AV forum. For the money it seemed worth doing (the HongKongBasket Furutech IEC with silver cabling would have cost more)




    Very pleased with the end result, a much cleaner picture for starters. Not cheap though, total outlay has been around 」700 including the OCXO clock module still to be fitted (struggling to find someone to do the SMD reworking), but this player is a keeper. No need to change to anything else for the foreseeable future.

    I respectfully disagree, but appreciate the humour.

    Picked up the silver plated 8 pin cable this afternoon from the sorting office fitted it and just sat down to watch a movie.
    Switched the player on after fitting the cable, leaving the player on for 10 mins or so to get some scran and for the OCXO clock to get to temperature.

    The Oppo screensaver had kicked in when I sat down to put the film and and I was struck by how sharper and brighter the moving logo was.
    (Yes...I know how that sounds lol)
    It looked pixelated at its edges, never was before and I wasn稚 looking for it obviously.
    Just grabbed my attention... I could just see it.

    I知 not mad btw, my calibrated 65 OLED shows pretty much whatever it痴 fed as good as it can feed it and it honestly was a 層hoa moment.
    The cable is the link between the power supply (the Oppomod SE is a good one, the guy who fitted my OCXO clock board was curious and hooked it up to a scope and looked at the traces) and the Oppo痴 main board...so it痴 important.

    A reasonable theory might be the OCXO board is now able to really do its stuff with a better power feed with the silver plated cable from the psu.

    Everything matters in this game, Gareth get that clock board fitted mate.

    Oh, the screensaver was good and drew my attention - the movie..crikey.

    There’s not too much info on the AC Purifier, but run these through Google translate:

    Good stuff Gareth, thanks for the links.


    The OCXO board is a significant upgrade on both audio and video. It’ll improve things again.
    The Oppo 203 is a bit special and worth all the mods.

    It was when I found out PS Audio and even MSB based their mega bucks streamers on the 203’s internals that I got interested.
    Even if I get a little of the bit towards those guys over the standard Oppo...I’ll be happy.
    Runs great into my dac over i2s.

    Whats your take on disk playback from the Oppo after the mods you’ve done?
