    No sweat Barry, it's only two minutes. The song is related to the Oppo 205 (the true aim - Alison), and Priscilla is an angel. Just that short video is magnetic, magic, very attractive. And that was the simple related point with the Oppo 205, voila.

    Thanks Bob.
    Looks very impressive and given their past track record seems very credible.
    It will be interesting to read what the reviewers think

    Barry, reading the HDMI Audio Jitter Reduction Circuit in the OPPO UDP-205 had me thinking and I posted this earlier in another thread:
    http://www.whatsbestforum.com/showth...830#post446830
    ______

    Yes indeed, I'm looking forward to professional reviews with the full battery of measurements; video and audio.
    It might take a while though, because the Oppo 203 is not yet fully evolved, with few glitches remaining to be fixed (video freezes, sync. issues from HDMI In) and of course Dolby Vision not yet upgraded and with complete analysis.

    This is only a brief review, from yesterday: http://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/v...player-review/
    ______

    But I am waiting for the full set of audio and video measurements, earlier mentioned in January: http://hometheaterhifi.com/news/prod...layer-preview/

    This is more the player for the class of audience here. It is the audiophile player, a good notch above its little brother, the 203.
    Video wise they both have the same exact video processor chip, so the picture quality is equal between the 203 and the new 205.
    The transport mechanism is also the same, so it should have the same qualities (pros & cons) between them.
    Through firmware updates the cons should slowly dissipate.

    I'm keeping a close eye open on it from owner's experience reads. I'll share what I judge interesting.

    Oppo 203 | Review finally complete (with measurements)

    I have been waiting for that one ↑ from quite a while. Here she is.
    _____

    Next: Oppo 205 (measurements of its audio).
    Also, Dolby Vision, eventually. I have no idea exactly when, but my best guess; before June 6th, 2017.

    In the interim if something new is worth mentioning I'm not going anywhere else. It's alive.

    And with that latest recent Beta firmware update from above, Dolby Vision comes with it:
