OPPO UDP-203 in the First Test

Can the long awaited first ultra launch HD Blu-ray player from oppo the previous reference, Panasonic’s UB900, from the throne? After our first practice test speaks a lot for it.

OPPO UDP-203 in the First Test
For many home theater enthusiasts, oppo is par excellence the Blu-ray player cult brand. No surprise, then, that December was a huge hype surrounding the first UHD players of the United States manufacturer in social media. The latter had promised in the summer to bring the UDP-203 ahead of a Festival on the market. And a week before Christmas it was finally ready. Home Cinema of Kanade, official German oppo importer and Distributor, has thankfully abgezwackt us equal to a unit from the first delivery – however provided with the note, that the first batch could selectively be provided, still buggy with bugs.
It is common to oppo: the high-tech company in Silicon Valley shoots after like improvements in news about firmware updates. Why we get a little adjourn the full test including all measured data fairness. Also, because oppo has announced an important feature for the UDP 203 that is only released in the spring of the young year via firmware update: Dolby vision, the “Advanced” HDR, with 12 bit color resolution (instead of 10-bit, HDR10) works and is intended for up to 10,000 nits brightness.Nevertheless, we have taken the now fifth after twice Panasonic, Samsung and xBox one S ultra-HD Blu-ray player on the market thoroughly scrutinized.

Audiophile Diversity

Outside the oppo UDP-203 can be already on very good quality. The universal player comes quite high quality brushed aluminium front panel and a solid metal chassis. And joy arises also when looking into the Interior (picture on the right), as well as on the back of the unit. The high precision drive that you put always value at oppo, playing virtually all the entertainment heart desires: in addition to UHD Blu-ray standard Blu-ray, 3D Blu-rays are, DVDs, audio CDs, but also the two audiophile formats DVD-audio and SACD are processed. The latter is quite an advantage over our current reference player, the UB900 Panasonic. When making connections, the two present, however, little.
Both have two HDMI outputs. Thus, it can be separated video and audio signal to increase the quality of the transmitted grinding. Or alternatively can play older AV receiver, which is still not necessary HDR on the 4 k HDMI connection with processing of HDCP2. have 2 copy protection. Both eight RCA Lautsprecher connections for analog 7.1 Setup. The Panasonic also has separate outputs for stereo sound, they are missing the oppo.For this, he also has an RS232C port for the integration of home automation and trigger connections, which allow you to control a motor screen.

Connection-Happy

The oppo will devour almost all content that exist. That’s why its developers with three USB 3.0 ports (once front, two rear) have furnished him. The player is happy to hard disks, sticks or other network devices.Who wants to looping through such as picture and sound of a Streaming players, can do so via the HDMI input. Also an added value compared to the UB900-off equipment. The Panasonic is for photo – and video friends a piece closer, thanks to the SD card slot on the front. To what extent the oppo is under or superior to its main competitor in terms of image processing, we are still not fully find out in the first test in the face of the upcoming firmware updates. We give you greater insight us yet, first with a ride through the Setup menu.

Natural Colors

This shows quickly that the developers have thought also to customers, which are not equipped with the latest TV or AV devices. So, it can be set under “Video output” HDR contentin SDR to be issued. An important point for users of older HDR-TVs, which partly set the brightness too low and this function “outsmarted” can be.
As the experts of Heimkino_Retailers found Grobi.TV in her first check, HDR and BT can. spend 2020 color space as well as in 1080 p, so full HD. A special feature, but only on certain Epson projectors, specifically on the models of EPSON 7300, 9300 and 9300W is true.
Friends of the three-dimensional representation, however, have the ability to convert also 2D-Inhalte in 3D and to determine the depth of the dimension itself.
Given its audiophile ports positioned the oppo also in the menu as a sound expert. Not just because he plays even loss less high res audio formats like AIFF, WAV, FLAC, and ALAC. In the audio output setup, HiFi enthusiasts will find a playground, about even with the possible election of the frquenzoptimierenden anti-aliasing filter, found otherwise only in high-quality CD players.
Using our reference Blu-ray ‘TV picture perfect setting’ we check the color processing in the next step. And Lo and behold: the first test images show that an UDP-203 renders colors faithfully and of course. Stains can not be determined. Also in terms of sharpness, the oppo can be expected to reference quality Flash.
And one of its most important functions of the Americans not failed: when the HDR rendering, he cuts a fine figure at UHD Blu-rays not only, but also on sources from the USB stick. “HDR Video is playing” immediately displays our Samsung TV after the start of our test images. Thus the signal has been perfectly implemented by USB to HDMI-HDR and recognized by the TV, so that also colors in the fully extended color space BT. be represented by 2020. As already mentioned, we must unfortunately still waiting the test Dolby Vision content. On the update we may be really looking forward in the face of the first inspection.
Speaking of testing: who is more interested in dieAusgabedaten of his film, will have lots of fun with the Info button on the oppo remote control. Holding about two seconds, it appears a huge litany of information, how one has never seen it on Blu-ray players. Including data to luminance, audio format, video codec, color space, and much more.

Many Information

In fact, the oppo is quite comfy. Basic information are displayed to the programme at short pressing of the Info button. And when you turn on high dynamic range HDR button on the remote control specially integrated and includes the source also HDR, “HDR 10” appears top left on the screen. After this firmware update is likely here in the case of the case also “Dolby Vision” to be found.
But not only the variety of data tells us to. Also in terms of color reproduction and contrast allows the oppo during our test movie “X-men: first decision” already flashed his skills. Whether he is suitable for reference at this point, we will only find in the full review including measuring laboratory.
Is nevertheless already: oppo other manufacturers will have to allow you to measure. The US manufacturer will optimize not only the UDP-203 in the spring, but also offer a complementary and improved model, the UDP-205. Still no specifications are set for this purpose. But even with the Blu-ray disc players, oppo proceeded similarly with the BDP-103 and BDP-105 models. The preview image on the site suggests more audiophile features. A headphone jack on the front panel is so below.

Second Player Comes

The competition in the UHD-Blu-ray market will be so exciting. At least a further high player on the market comes with Sony’s first. Panasonic will use also lower price regions, so that the variety and greater selection and the entry in the 4K-HDR-Welt is easier. A positive development, which sooner or later will affect also the still high prices of the films. And thhe film studios will publish double packs fortunately still a while where the movie is on the new ultra HD-Blu-ay as well as included on a full HD Blu-ray. Thus the discs also on older players can be played.

Conclusion

The oppo UDP-203 shows what a universal player can today can and must. Only, who wants to enjoy streaming content from Netflix in 4 K and HDR, must seek an external source. That the player, although not yet on the market, we know from oppo. Who wants to hope for quality jumps by firmware update, rather should wait with the purchase. The motto can be only for the early adopter among home theater enthusiasts: get to the bacon.
