"Punchy and Focused, Almost Three-Dimensional"
The Oppo UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player provides an unmatched A/V experience to home theater enthusiasts. Drawing from over a decade's worth of experience in advanced imaging processing technology and high fidelity audio performance, the UDP-203 is the ideal source to complete the ultimate home theater and sound room.
"The texture of Deadpool's suit looks remarkably punchy and focused, making it seem almost three-dimensional. Ryan Reynolds' facial close-ups also reveal gorgeous detail, housed within some of the most natural-looking skin tones I've witnessed," reports TrustedReviews.com.
The UDP-203 supports the playback of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs. Packing a resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, UHD Blu-ray delivers four times the pixels of Full HD Blu-ray. The UDP-203 is also capable of playing 4K media files and user generated content. Support for decoding the HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K, and Hi10P video codecs provides increased compatibility with user generated media.
High Dynamic Range
The UDP-203 supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut. The enhanced resolution, refined contrast, greater brightness, and expanded color produce stunning video with unparalleled clarity and detail. In addition to supporting the HDR10 format on discs and video files, it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion of HDR to SDR for older displays, as well as conversion between various color spaces such as BT.2020, BT.709, and BT.601.
Dolby Vision Upgradeable
Leveraging hardware designed to support Dolby Vision, customers can expect a firmware update in early 2017 that brings Dolby Vision support to the player. Dolby Vision transforms the TV viewing experience by delivering striking highlights, brilliant colors, and deep darks never before seen on standard television screens, and Oppo is committed to bringing this exciting technology to the UDP-203.
Reference Quality Video
The UDP-203 combines the latest technology with Oppo's many years of experience in delivering high quality video and audio. A customized quad-core video decoder/processor integrates Oppo's advanced video decoding, processing and optimization expertise.
A high-precision, well-balanced laser optical disc loader ensures smooth and reliable playback of all types of disc media. An optimized laser mechanism to ensure super fast disc loading, strong error detection and correction.
The design of the UDP-203 focuses on quality playback and universal compatibility with multiple disc and file formats. In addition to the latest UHD Blu-ray, the UDP-203 supports regular Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and audio CD.
Exceptional Build Quality
The UDP-203 features a brushed aluminum front panel, a rigid steel chassis and gold plated connectors. The solid build quality not only presents a sleek aesthetic, but also ensures dependable operation and reliable connection.
Media File Playback
The UDP-203 is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports on the back and another USB port on the front. Users can play video, music and photos from USB hard drives or thumb drives.
Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet connects the UDP-203 to users' home networks, so users can easily play media files stored on computers and home servers.
Lossless Audio Decoding
The UDP-203's video performance and universal compatibility is further complemented by its support of lossless high resolution audio. The player decodes audio file formats such as AIFF, WAV, ALAC, APE and FLAC. It also directly plays Direct-Stream Digital audio files in stereo DSD64/128 or multi-channel DSD64.
Advanced Audio Formats
With internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and bitstream output for object-based immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the UDP-203 delivers great sound for both movie soundtracks and music.
The UDP-203 offers 7.1-channel audio outputs for connecting to a 7.1-channel or 5.1-channel surround sound system. The 7.1-ch outputs feature "Velvet Sound" 32-bit premium digital-to-analog converters from AKM of Japan, delivering an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience.
HDMI Outputs and Input
The player features two HDMI outputs – an HDMI 2.0 port for connecting to the latest UHD TVs, projectors and A/V receivers, and an HDMI 1.4 audio port for connecting to older A/V receivers. Customers with newer 4K- and HDR-capable A/V receivers can use a full HDMI 2.0 signal path, while customers with older A/V receivers can have a split A/V setup.
An HDMI 2.0 input port that supports UHD resolution is available for users to connect an external streaming device. This approach affords users the flexibility to choose from a wide range of streaming devices and easily upgrade as streaming technologies evolve, while still taking advantage of the UDP-203's audio and video processing capabilities.
Integration-friendly features such as RS-232 control, back panel IR sensor and third-party IP control make the UDP-203 a great choice for any home theater system. Coaxial and optical digital audio outputs provides backward compatibility with legacy audio components.

|Researching BlueRay players|
This Oppo 203 came out on top as it is also a universal disc player. I sought to replace an older Marantz unit and found it to be a stunning improvement both in picture and sound quality. You have to hear your SACD and DVD Audio discs through this machine to believe your ears. Also my many DVDs took on new life with the built-in video enhancements. For example, I recently rented the 1970's BBC series "Pallisers', where each disc was prefaced with the apology for flaws in the transfer owing to the age of production. Have not noticed any reasons for such contrition.

I have owned the Samsung, Pioneer and Xbox S 4K players and none of them come close. I own a Oppo bdp-93 and it performes better then any other Blu-Ray player I have owned so I am not surprised how good this one is. The video and sound where awesome. This purchase is a no brainer.

Excellent device for audiophiles. This is a great player and does much more than the rest of the blu ray players.

|Wow! Worth Every Penny|
I had a friend recommend one to me. These are definitely not inexpensive, but the picture on my UHD tv is amazing playing UHD DVDs. Blu-ray DVD's are up-converted and there is only a very small difference between those and playing native UHD dvds. Even standard DVDS look much better. The setup was very easy and took me maybe 10 minutes. As I said it is not inexpensive but, in my opinion worth every penny

|Another Oppo Wow|
Another great product from OPPO. I think this is my 4th or 5th of their players. It's the best player I've owned and every bit as good as my old 103 player. As for 4K, the picture is much better on my LG 4K OLED TV than with my Philips 4K player - which still looked very good. The great thing about the OPPO is their remotes are awesome and they give you a ton of settings options; very versatile. I'm still going to keep my old OPPO 103 player for use in another system. The great thing about this 4K 203 player is the remote has 3 code settings so you can set this remote so it will only control this player and not other OPPO products near by. LOVE IT!

|Just Buy It|
The 203 is just fantastic. I use it for everything. 4K movies, Blu-ray movies. I stream movies, I use it as a player connected to my stereo speakers. I stream music to it, it works through DLNA or SMB. It has EVERYTHING you could need. It's also super fast and super reliable. I have NOT had ONE problem with the OPPO. Not even one. I know some people have but that could be because of faulty cables, bad system or just not using it properly. Buy it. You won't regret it.

IMO the OPPO video performance is unsurpassed. The more the technical reviews are published, the better this UHD player looks. I've used it myself with two different 4K tvs including a 65" LG OLED and am constantly impressed with the video image provided. Standard HD bluray discs and older DVDs are upscaled to a quality not seen previously. I'm a music buff -- anything from Pink Floyd to Beethoven plus -- and have worked over the years to develop a quality sound system. This OPPO is the best music transport source I have ever heard. That includes using CDs, SACDs as well as DVD and bluray audio. It also plays music files from my PC and network drives. The OPPO also immediately discovered our personal photos and videos of the past 15 years and brought them to new life.

|Better Than Ever|
Fast. Responsive. Beautiful interface and player. My older DVDs and Blurays look even better than they did on my 103D. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. I don't think you can do better for 4K or any other digital media than OPPO. Highly recommend this purchase.
