Oppo - 103D
The BDP-103D’s Darbee image processor takes home theatre beyond accuracy and adds enhanced depth and realism to the visual experience. For those that have experienced OPPO’s BDP-103AU and BDP-105AU, it’s hard to believe that OPPO picture quality could be more immersive. The BDP-103D Darbee Edition shows the world what comes after high definition.
“It’s like lifting a veil.” The Darbee processor is able to provide greater clarity and increased perception of depth by embedding stereoscopic depth cues within the video, resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience. The Darbee’s processing level is adjustable, which allows users to customise it to their particular taste. Unlike many other image enhancers or sharpeners, the Darbee processor does not alter the image in a global fashion, so it is able to reduce the amount of image artifacts that are created, and it does not adversely affect calibrated settings such as contrast, gamma and colour.
The original BDP-103AU is known for its accuracy in reproducing video from all kinds of discs. The BDP-103D takes one step beyond reference quality accuracy. When the Darbee Visual Presence enhancement is turned off, it is a reference quality player just like the BDP-103AU. When the Darbee Visual Presence enhancement is turned on, the user has the option to fine tune the video to their own liking. If you are looking for a quality player that accurately reproduces video like no other with a more customised experience beyond standard picture adjustments, the BDP-103D provides the quality and the possibilities to enhance your viewing experience.
The BDP-103D Darbee Edition incorporates much of the same state-of-the-art technology as the BDP-103AU, including 4k video upscaling, 2D to 3D conversion, internet video and radio streaming (Quickflix, Netflix, Pandora), and support for a diversity of the latest digital formats including MKV, AVI, MP4, MP3, WAV and FLAC.
The BDP-103D delivers high-fidelity audio including Dolby TrueHD (for lossless, studio master quality designed for high-definition entertainment) and DTS-HD Master Audio, all through a 7.1-channel analogue output for an immersive sound experience. Digital optical and coaxial outputs facilitate easy connection to more traditional AV receivers. The unit is housed in a rigid steel chassis with an aluminium faceplate and centre-mounted disc loader for stability and high-quality reproduction.
