You'll be lucky to get a 205 now. They're no longer in production. If you're in the USA you can try registering for one of the final units on the Oppo website. If in UK, I got mine in late June from Kent Hi Fi. But you may be too late and have to try eBay, in which case you'll pay through the nose, I'm afraid!

Also, the 105 and 205 can play native DSD downloads. The 95 cannot.

BDP-95 Arc problem

We have the Oppo BDP-95 bluray player. Recently we upgraded our TV to the sony 940E & connected all the devices via ARC to the receiver (Denon AVR 4300). The disc on the bluray player plays the video OK. But we don't get audio. When the player is connected to our projector via hdmi, it plays both video & audio fine. It is a 1080P projector. Any ideas as to how we can get the audio to play for the TV will be greatly appreciated

If you connected the main hdmi out from the 95 to the 4300, the 4300 should get it's sound from the 95 just fine. Are you connecting the main hdmi out on the 95 to the TV and then using the TV ARC to the 4300? I Not enough information about your set up and connections to tell what might be the problem and I also don't understand your statement we connect all our devices to the 4300 with ARC. Not all device have ARC, just TVs usually.

The way I do it, is I connect the main HDMI out from the 95 to the TV and then connect the secondary hdmi out of the 95 to my receiver. Sometimes I watch a movie without the receiver just using the TV sound or headphones and sometimes I listen to CDs and don't want the TV on. That gives you the most flexibility.

You also might get a quicker response and better response than mine by posting in the 95 owners thread.

The 95 is not HDMI 2.0 or HDCP 2.2 compliant and needs a special firmware from Oppo to play nice. Contact Oppo support for the firmware. This is discussed in the 93 and 95 threads.

Thank you for your suggestion. I did contact OPPO support. They were very prompt & sent me a link to their firmware as well as instructions. Now my oppo works perfectly on the Sony 4k tv. Both audio & video work great. I’m one happy customer!

Hello, I have a question.
I want to stream music from phone(android) to my oppo 95.

I have installed on my phone Neutron media player. In Neutron's settings go to "output to" and screen is blank. Then installed "BubbleUpnp" then Neutron player see where to stream - in Bubbleupnp. My oppo also see Bubbleupnp and with oppo's remote I can explore content and play music. But from android music player (neutron or bubbleupnp i cant).
In Neutron player there are dsp and equalizer settings and I want to adjust it but while I listening from my 5.1 system I cant hear any differences. Possible to adjust dsp, EQ while music streaming from phone to oppo over dlna?? Thx for answer.

Hi I have a problem with my Oppo 95, I can’t get the disk tray to open. It powers up fine but it doesn’t respond to the disk tray open commands from either the remote or the unit itself.

Any assistance would be much appreciated

They can walk you through some troubleshooting steps. Flat rate repair is also available for around $100.

I'd try unplugging it first. Leave it unplugged for a couple of minutes, plug it back in and try again.

Try opening the tray as soon as it turns on. Don't wait for it to completely power up.
Also, on power-up do you hear an audible relay "CLICK"?

I had an issue with mine where the unit would allow the disc tray to open and close during power up, but about 4-5 seconds in that relay click would sound and the tray would no longer open and none of the controls would work. If there was a disc in the tray it would also not load.

In my case I had to ship my unit to OPPO twice for repair. The first time they fixed one component, the unit worked for about a month and then had the same issue, and the second time (same symptoms) they ended up replacing the power board.



Knock on wood, no issues since.

This is the reset procedure I got from Oppo. It did the trick for me.



Disconnect all cables from the player, including the HDMI, analog, and power cables. If your player was hardware modified to support alternative regions, please try removing this kit and returning the player to stock.

Change the dip switch on the back of the player from 115V to 230V.

Press and hold the POWER button on the front panel of the player for 5 seconds. Release.

Change the dip switch on the back of the player from 230V to 115V.

Reconnect just the power cable, connecting it direct to your walled power outlet, bypassing any switch, power conditioner or transformer.

Press POWER.

Thanks for the info , I received the same info from Oppo support. Unfortunately no luck, the player is in for repairs.

Hi Bob,
How can you tell if the SPDIF output contains 16/20/24 bits? None of the DACs I have (Anthem, Bryston) indicate the bit depth, only the sampling rate.

If you're asking about HDCD, the easy way to tell if its being decoded is the obvious difference in level. (6db)
