Does the US version come with universal voltage? 

USD 299 is not bad.. let's hope it has less bugs than the Oppo. Most buyers just want a player that works, features not withstanding..

Interesting the review quotes the next Xbox as being a better player, as this is where I was thinking of going, though release price is a bit exxy, it's still well cheaper than the current Oppo.......

Hey mate, I think Sony about 2 or 3 years ago made all their players SACD capable, even the budget one's, good to see the continuance however.......

Should have been more explicit Neil ;as in the second UHD player that handles both sacd and dvd audio. ;) sony have improved their file playback too with this model ; not like the old days :)

Its good theres a choice between value added gaming or universal disc playback though  I suspect the x box1;s video processing is more compromised towards gaming algorithms [ especially how it does any HDR games]

Reviews I am reading are rating it's UHD playback better than the Sammy and the Pana mate, at the price point I'll probably give it a go, not a gamer so more dedicated 2nd player option for me, and if it is any good I can leave the 103 set to Region A.

Agree re: the disc playback mate...........

Yorac,I thought you were an oppo man?

Lol, I've had 22 blu ray players, multiple brands, and what I'm hearing on the current Oppo isn't giving me any reason to upgrade, just happy to grab a quality second player, and watch more through the NAS than discs now anyway.......

Yep ... both my 103 and 105 rarely get turned on now days ... I still love it when we do watch a BD, but I am not convinced by all the recent talk that the new 4K machines improve BD PQ ... I'm sure 4K looks better but I'm not about to buy a new Oppo to replace the 105.

That's good to hear ; Sony shot themselves in the foot leaving UHD playback of the ps4 ;) Yeah didn't need another universal oppo  and when I got the chance to buy a pana 900 for 1/2 the price [and it plays 10bit and 4k HVEC files of my NAS as well which is rather rare ] I couldn't see value in another oppo either :)

Edited by cwt
HVEC codec worth mentioning

No problem for me. No display or projector with DV only HDR, I would guess many/most are in this boat currently?  Is DV that much better than HDR or is it the slick Dolby marketing? That's for another discussion :)

Me upgrading to DV when it matures will cost a lot more than $400, so happy to relegate this to the second display and upgrade player too at that time.

Yep no DV (or even UHD) on my plasma..   :P

And it will probably also be quite a while before it becomes available for PJ's, although I do have a DV player in the Oppo 203.  :rolleyes:
