Oppo UDP-203 and UDP-205 4K Ultra HD Audiophile Blu-ray Disc Player
For a very long time we all had to work really hard to be able to afford a disc player that could give us the best results at playing back our digital files, then we need to work even harder again to buy that fancy dvd player to play our moives….and then we had to work the weekends to be able to get a DAC which could play our digital files.
And if all that wasn’t enough of a effort we then ad to buy a rack to fit it all in and make sure it all worked seamlessly.
Fast forward some years and Oppo is a name that has really made its place know to the other high brands in the market. And in 2017 Oppo released two new models after a successful run with the BDP-103 and BDP-105D, and they have once again improved on what was already an excellent product for the money.
The Oppo 103 and 105/D are still excellent pieces of equipment and have not been made obsolete by the new models, but if you want 4K and a slight audio upgrade plus some other extra features then the new Oppo 203 and 205 are worth the upgrade or initial purchase.
