OPPO 105 D SIGNATURE PLAYER Dear Mark : your product created a new reference in BD player. For the first time (pursuing this goal for more than 30 years, since VHS , LASER DISC time ) i can watch a DVD or a BLUE RAY DISC , with a crystalline image and with a high end sound.
Normally all these equipments have a poor audio session , and the sound of the discs have some harshness , agressivity , common to many CDS. We audiophiles look for equipments that try to give us a sound similar with live music, nothing more !.
To hear a trumpet without a metallic sound , to can differentiate the sound of a violin Amati from Cremona , from a Stradivarius, a piano sound of Steinway , compared with a Bosendorf. It seems obvious but what happened is , that except some OPPO players , the comercial brands don't follow this target , the sound is disagreeable, miss a lot.
Trying to get it ,i use AUDIO RESEARCH ELETRONICS ALL VACUUM TUBES , CABLES INTERCONNECTS VAN DEN HUL SILVER IT BALANCED , P5 PSAUDIO POWER CONDITIONER , WIREWORLD PLATINUM HDMI CABLE , SHAKTI STONES , BW 802 SPEAKERS , TV SONY 4K NEW MODEL 9500 B (made in japan) with local dimming , with the blacks similar to TV KURO PLASMA . Recently i bought the best Sony bd player model 7200 , that follow the tv , the image is good ,and the sound poor ! ONCE YOU TRY THE OPPO 105 D SIGNATURE , IS A PROBLEM , YOU BECOME ADDICT YOU CANT STOP USING THIS EQUIPMENT! My old dvds became so different , the picture so beautiful and the sound much better , that it seems different discs. The DVD COOK YOUNG AND DIXON , recorded by JEFF ROLAND, you feel the force of the voice of Young , with the spectacular voice of the counter tenor Cook, and the bass of the organ. In the blue ray disc THREE MO DIVAS , you see crystal clear image , hearing sensational voices. In Harry Belafonte DVD , now i can see detailed the colors of the clothes of the artists , with the beautiful , sweet voice of Belafonte .
Congatulations Mark , you understood the needs of the audiophiles and videophiles :to watch a dvd disc , or a blue ray disc , with a spectacular sound , that in a good system , will be a high end sound, and excellent image ! With your 105 d Signature the difference will be the source,with a good source you have a marvellous image , with a correct sound. THE INDUSTRY SHOULD LEARN WITH YOU! YOU ARE A GENIOUS!
