"Product of the Year 2011" - Stereophile
Engineered for Stunning Audio Performance Plus the Blu-ray Excellence You Expect
The Oppo BDP-95 is one amazing Blu-ray player. Although it shares the same playback platform as the BDP-93, the BDP-95 has been designed from the ground up with a different chassis and many different components optimized for the analog audio performance.
Stereophile magazine named the Oppo BDP-95 "Product of the Year" for 2011 in its "Joint Budget Components" category in the December 2011 issue. According to the magazine, the BDP-95 is "an outstanding value in a universal player."
SABRE32 Reference ES9018 DAC
The DAC is one of the most important components for digital audio playback. The SABRE32 Reference ES9018 from ESS Technology is the world’s best performing 32-bit audio DAC solution targeted for high-end consumer applications and professional studio equipment. With the ESS patented 32-bit Hyperstream DAC architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the SABRE32 Reference DAC delivers an unprecedented DNR (Dynamic Range) of up to 135 dB and THD+N (Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise) of -120 dB, the industry’s highest performance level that will satisfy even the most demanding audio enthusiast. The Oppo BDP-955 uses two ES9018 DAC chips - one for the 7.1-channel output, and another for the dedicated stereo output.
Custom designed and built by Rotel, the Oppo BDP-95's toroidal power transformer offers superior inrush current and much lower exterior magnetic field over traditional laminated steel core transformers. The BDP-95's toroidal linear power supply provides a very clean and robust power source to the critical audio components.
XLR Balanced Stereo Output
The Oppo BDP-955 features a dedicated two-channel analog output with specially optimized ES9018 DAC and output driving stages. Each output is driven by 4 DAC channels stacking together to achieve even greater audio performance. The stereo output offers both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended connectors. The balanced output features a true differential signal path all the way from the DAC to the 3-pin XLR connector. By transmitting a pair of differential signals, the balanced output provides better common-mode noise rejection and improves signal quality.
The Oppo BDP-95 is a Blu-ray universal disc player that doesn't just play discs. It's also a network player that lets you instantly watch streaming Netflix or Blockbuster On Demand movies via the Internet and your Netflix or Blockbuster membership. You can also connect your USB or eSATA drive for even more AV content. The built-in WiFi N-adapter gives you wireless access to content on your home network, and there's an Ethernet connection, too. That's a lot of entertainment in one affordable package, and the BDP-95 delivers the top notch video quality that you expect from Oppo.
In addition to excelling with Blu-ray, the Oppo BDP-95 plays Super Audio CD (SACD) and DVD-Audio, and supports both stereo and multi-channel high resolution audio programs. With SACD, you can select whether to output the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) signal in its native format or convert it into PCM. Additional disc and file formats, such as DVD, audio CD, HDCD, Kodak Picture CD, AVCHD, MP4, DivX, MKV, FLAC, WAV and other audio/video/picture files on recorded discs, USB or eSATA drives can be played back on the BDP-95.
3D and BD-Live Support
Experience high definition in all new dimensions. The Oppo BDP-95 supports the new Blu-ray 3D specifications (3D television and glasses required).
The Oppo BDP-95 supports BD-Live (Profile 2.0) and contains all necessary hardware - audio/video decoder, Ethernet and wireless networking, and 1GB of internal storage - for BD-Live. It also supports BonusVIEW (Profile 1.1) enabling "picture-in-picture" and audio features for viewing director or actor commentary while the main movie is playing.
Unparalleled Video Quality
The BDP-95 features user selectable video output resolutions, including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and up to 1080p 50 or 60Hz.
The Oppo BDP-95 incorporates Marvell's Kyoto-G2 video processor with the second generation Qdeo™ technology. Qdeo video processing delivers a truly immersive viewing experience by rendering quiet natural video free of noise and artifacts for all types of content. For high-quality Blu-ray content, the Oppo BDP-95 faithfully reproduces the program just as the director intended; for DVD, the up-converted picture quality bridges the visual gap from your current DVD library to Blu-ray discs; for network streaming and user-encoded content at a variety of formats and quality, the BDP-95 offers enhancement options including video noise reduction, compression artifact reduction, intelligent color, contrast, detail and edge enhancements.
Per-pixel motion-adaptive de-interlacing and advanced scaling transform the standard definition image on DVDs to high definition output to your TV. Additional Qdeo video processing options help to deliver a clearer, smoother, and true-to-life picture free of noise and artifacts.
True 24p Video Capability
Many Blu-ray Discs are recorded at 24 frames per second, the same frame rate as the original movie's theatrical release. With its True 24p Video capability, the Oppo BDP-95 can faithfully redeliver the original frames using 1080p 24Hz output (compatible display required) for smoother motion and a flicker-free, film-like home theater experience. It can also restore the original 24 frames per second progressive-scan video from well-authored DVDs and output as 1080p 24Hz.
For users who wish to use an external video processor, high-end audio/video receiver or display, the BDP-95 offers a "Source Direct" mode. The original audio/video content on the discs is sent out with no additional processing or alteration.
The Oppo BDP-95 supports multiple levels of aspect ratio control and image zooming, including a vertical stretch mode for customers with a 2.35:1 CIH (Constant Image Height) display system. A unique subtitle shift feature allows the user to move the subtitle up and down, making it possible to see all subtitle text when using a 2.35:1 CIH display. (Blu-ray discs with BD-Java may prohibit zoom operation.)
Two assignable HDMI v1.4a outputs are provided to capitalize on the optimum audio and video settings to all old, new, and future HDMI televisions and receivers. With the option of full audio and video output to 2 displays; or dedicate one HDMI for audio, the other for video, it promotes a high quality video and audio for both signal paths. The Oppo BDP-95 supports 3D and Deep Color modes on both HDMI output ports.
