News for Australian readers:

I've had links for both the Interdyn and Oppo Australia update pages in my bookmarks for some years. Both of those links stopped working a couple of days ago. By going to the Interdyn home pageant heading to their support pages, I found a new support setup for all of their products at this URL: http://support.interdyn.com.au/support/home


Links to all Oppo firmware updates are at the bottom of the page. The Australian Oppo Digital site which I think was actually run by Interdyn, has been revised with an announcement of Oppo's departure and the customer service link takes you to the URL above.

If you've saved a bookmark in the past for Oppo firmware updates the new Interdyn link I provided above now seems to be the only operative URL for Australian firmware updates.

There is no MQA support in the OPPO 105. MQA music will play as non-MQA.

Hello and a happy new year!
I haven’t written here a long time. Now I recently purchased new toy - Sonos wireless speakers. Mostly I’m streaming music them from Apple Music. But can I get music out of the Oppo also?
Here is the description, what is needed:
http://support.sonos.com/s/article/78?language=en_US
I've done a backward thing, but I m not sure if Oppo will allow it?
When I go on iOS: From the More tab, select Settings > Manage Music Library > Music Library Setup and tap Add New Share, what should I add there? Probably Oppo IP address, but I’m not sure, if I can configure Oppo as NAS? Thanks, if anyone knows more. I couldn't figure out it with the first sight.
Or should I ask it on the Sonos forum?

Dreambox DM920 UHD, QboxHD, Qbox Mini, Icecrypt T2300HD / Sony KDL-46W 905A / Rega BRIO-R 600 & NAD C 320BEE /
Oppo BDP-105D / Synology DS213J / new Apple TV / VIP5305 Compact UHD IP Set-Top Box / Sonos Play ONE Stereo pair on Bedroom /
Vertex 4K60 4:4:4 600MHz /

Thanks, that’s what I was afraid of. I accidentally added my question in the wrong topic, because I have OPPO BDP-105D. If OPPO BDP-105D and OPPO BDP-105 having a difference on that, I don't know. But I’m afraid that s the case, and so I can’t do it.

^ The 105 and 105D are the same in this regard. No ability to use either as a NAS.

Just a note RE 105D as a NAS, I have 3 NAS I can pull music or movies from any of them to either Oppo, but I choose not to play music that way. I put my music in both FLAC and MP3 formats on a 1TB WD USB thumb drive. I find that the Oppo prefer to be fed music that way.

Yeah, well, I've done this all, and I wished now to do backwards, because I bought to my bedroom small Sonos Play ONE Stereo pair:
http://en.community.sonos.com/wirel...edroom-6818536
Thank you for your confirmation, that I can't do that.
Some more complicated solution exists, I went by the shop today. There's a Sonos streamer, can get inside from the “Line In”, and get out needful stream, but it's another piece of trouble and expensive equipment. I'll stay with what I have.

Unhappy Oppo BDP105 media format not supported

I'm a happy owner of an Oppo BDP105EU for several years now. Besides playing Blurays and DVD's, I use it to stream video's and music from my Synology NAS.
Until a few months ago I could play almost every format of 2D/3D video and stereo/MC music. Nowadays I often get the message "this media format is not supported". It's very strange because these files could be streamed by the Oppo in the past. Consistently some WAV's can be played, some WAV's cannot, some videos can be played (MP4, AVI) but also some cannot.
The music and video files are OK because these can be played on my Oled or computer without any problem.
What could be wrong?

Welcome to AVSForum.

As a diagnostic to eliminate server issues, take some files which do not play and copy them to a USB device and attach that to the player.

Do they play that way?

Sounds like you are using the NAS's DNLA server and its transcoding for some reason. If you can play the same files from USB, then that's probably what's going on. Be sure to use the SMB file sharing from the NAS instead.

Hi guys,
I have copied some files to a USB stick but also from there the media formats cannot be accepted.
Could there be different formats within WAV and MP4 files where some are accepted by the BDP105 and some are not?

I have a BDP-95 and have quite a few DVD-A discs that are 96kHz/24-bit. Sometimes I will use my Weiss DAC1 mkII connected to the coaxial digital output for listening. I have confirmed with many devices that I am indeed getting the full resolution from the coax digital output. I have noticed that all of the Blu-Ray audio discs I've tried only give 48kHz/16-bit.

My friend just acquired a BDP-105D. We tried to do the same listening setup using the coax output but only get 48kHz/16-bit from the same DVD-A discs. Reading the manual for the BDP-105 it states:

"Due to copyright restrictions and bandwidth limitations, full resolution audio from DVD-Audio discs cannot be sent through the coaxial or optical digital audio output. To listen to DVD- Audio in full resolution, please use the HDMI or analog audio connections."

So the BDP-95 obviously does not follow suit. Interesting that it treats the Blu-Rays different from the DVD-A discs. Anyone know the story on any of this?

There are different flavors of DVD that all call themselves "DVD-A". So specifics are disc dependent. Many BD movies are in fact 16/48, so again this is disc dependent.
There are also settings in the player for specifying the SPDIF output sampling rate limit.

I changed the SPDIF output setting to 192kHz on both the 95 and 105. The Blu-Ray discs I'm playing are of the audio variety with 96kHz stereo and surround audio. Like Moving Pictures by Rush and The White Album from The Beatles.

I guess my question is, why do the players operate differently with the same discs? The 95 will output the high-rez while the 105 drops everything down to 48kHz. Which the manual does mention for the 105, but the 95 does not mention it, and it outputs the full resolution.

The behavior in the 95 is a mistake -- a licensing violation for DVD-A content. However the player is old enough the powers that be aren't going to make an issue out of it.

The behavior in the 105 matches the licensing requirements. Presumably this was something that came up when the newer player was certified.

This is not a technical restriction. It is a licensing restriction related to the fact that the S/PDIF Digital audio outputs don't provide Copy Protection.

For Blu-ray discs (whether audio-only or movies) the restriction is tied to the authoring of the specific disc. If the disc is authored as "protected" for audio, then the restriction applies.

Just found out Oppo has gotten out of blu-ray player business. Sad. I really like my BDP-105. Ordered an additional remote control just in case. I have been playing FLAC/WAV using the USB input. Not sure if this is the best way to get good quality sound. I would like to share my experience. Suggestions/comments are welcome.
1. Playing from an USB thumb drive sounds better than an external USB HD.
2. My the thumb drive was formatted with NTFS default of 4096. I reformatted it with exFAT using 128K. It sounds better. Now I am using 4096K. Overkill? Not enough?
3. BDP-105 has three USB inputs. Sound quality seems worse with more than one thumb drive plugged in.
4. Just got my Monitor Audio Silver 300. Decided the subwoofer is not needed. To my surprise, even though the subwoofer power cord is unplugged, disconnecting the cable from BDP-105 SW output sounds better.

This is the only item in your list that has a chance of making any sense to me. It's possible that having your subwoofer connected creates something along the lines of a ground loop and disconnecting it would resolve whatever the issue was.


The rest of the items in your list are pretty much drawing a pentagram with the right type of chalk type stuff IMO, but go with whatever makes you happy and sounds best to you as that's the only thing that really matters in the end.

Since the power cord is disconnected, the subwoofer is not connected to anything. If you believe in possibilities that are not obvious, the cable is 10 feet long to the subwoofer. It may pick up noise as well as the subwoofer itself may since it is quite large.

Anyone has speaking-from-experience suggestions to get better sound quality?
