Product Description

Oppo UPD-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player is the incarnation of the reuniting of Oppo with MediaTek built on their decade of experience developing high-end DVD and Blu-ray players.

Construction

The UDP-203 features a brushed aluminium front panel and rigid steel chassis and gold plated connectors that continue the tradition of excellent workmanship found in previous generations of OPPO universal players. The solid build quality not only presents a sleek aesthetic, but also ensures dependable operation and reliable connection.

Audio Processing

The UDP-203 features a premium 32-bit DAC from AKM, the AK4458VN, which is an 8-channel DAC with support for formats such as 192 kHz / 32-bit PCM and multi-channel DSD64/128. The UDP-203's disc loader features an optimised laser mechanism that delivers superfast disc loading, compatibility with a wide range of optical media, and strong error detection and correction to ensure error-free physical media playback.

A customised quad-core SOC OP8591 video decoder/processor integrates OPPO's advanced video decoding, processing and optimisation expertise for 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and user generated media formats.

HDR/HDR-SDR

One of the more exciting elements of the new 4K UHD format is the inclusion of high-dynamic range (HDR) video and an expanded colour range, allowing for more natural and true-to-life colours. The UDP-203 supports HDR and Wide Colour Gamut. The enhanced resolution, refined contrast, greater brightness and expanded colour produce stunning video with unparalleled clarity and detail.

The UDP-203 supports the HDR10 format, and it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion from HDR to SDR for older displays including conversion between various colour spaces such as BT.2020, BT.709, and BT.601. Support for Dolby Vision will be available in the future via a firmware upgrade. Dolby Vision transforms the TV viewing experience by delivering striking highlights, brilliant colours, and deep darks never before seen on standard television screens.

Ultra HD Upscaling

The UDP-203 is capable of upscaling lower resolution content up to 4Kx2K at 50/60Hz to a compatible display, which is four times the resolution found on a 1080p Blu-ray disc. The UDP-203 also features advanced picture controls. Adjustments can be made to brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and sharpness to compensate for any limitations found in other home theatre components or to suit own personal taste.

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.

Resolution/ Native Colour Space

The UDP-203 features support for all current SD, HD, and UHD resolutions, including 4K at 60p/50p/30p and 24p using various colour spaces such as PC RGB, Video RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0. Audio format support has been expanded to DSD64/128 or multi-channel DSD64, as well as 192kHz/24-bit PCM used in high-resolution lossless formats such AIFF, ALAC, APE, FLAC and WAV.

Latest Surround Formats

In addition to supporting the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround formats, the UDP-203 supports bit streaming the latest object-based surround formats, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. These new formats add overhead sound effects to create a greater impression of 3D-dimensionality.

To ensure compatibility with older amplifiers, pre-amps, and receivers that do not support HDMI, the UDP-203 retains a 7.1 multi-channel analogue output section, which delivers an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience.

Home Theatre Integration

The UDP-203 is easy to integrate into any system due to its ability to receive standard IR, RS-232, third party IP Control system, and HDMI CEC commands. The player also supports Trigger In and Out, so it can automatically turn on and off other devices connected to it for the ultimate convenience.

The newly updated, high-resolution user interface has been designed to be incredibly convenient to navigate, and provides an easy way to manage and access media files from both local and network storage.

Diversified Media Support

The UDP-203 is able to play all standard optical disc formats, such as 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and CD. It also supports connected USB hard drives and thumb drives up to 16TB in capacity, and it has the ability to access content from DLNA servers and SMB shares over the local network.

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.

Versatile Connectivity

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.

A 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.

Press Reviews

  • 'Oppo’s impressive 4K Blu-ray player sets a new home cinema standard. For: Stunning 4K picture, Superb levels of detail and clarity, Rich colours, Big, dynamic sound, Fast and easy to operate.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Jan 2017)

  • 'Every ounce of detail is etched out with superb clarity and subtlety... Colours are effusive, inviting you to look deeper into every inch of the screen. The Oppo goes for an appealing colour balance that’s aimed to impress – reds, blues and yellows are richly hued – but they don’t ever look unnatural.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Jan 2017)

  • 'Motion is stable, too, keeping the action smooth even when faced with tricky slow-panning shots... There’s a certain glossiness to the Oppo’s picture that makes it alluring, but it does so without compromising its hold on reality. Characters and objects seem to pop out in a most impressive manner, too, keeping your attention hooked to the pictures. That’s down to the layers upon layers of subtlety brought out by the Oppo.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Jan 2017)

  • 'The UDP-203 has been housed in a sturdy metal chassis that’s surprisingly sleek for Oppo. It looks smart, and will easily disappear into your home cinema room. The display is clear and informative and also dimmable. The buttons are responsive, and the 4K disc loader itself is fast and fairly quiet in operation.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Jan 2017)

  • 'The Oppo simply reveals more layers of subtlety... It’s just as enjoyable and discerning when playing normal Blu-rays and DVDs, and its music credentials are worth making a song and dance about, too. And we’re more than happy to sing the Oppo 203’s praises. It may be a touch pricey, but that sense of awe you get when watching 4K films is worth every penny. We’d start adding it to your home cinema wish list right now.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Jan 2017)

    I'll update this review a little later on (for reasons I'll mention below) but this is my first Oppo product and I'm very impressed so far.

    I'm planning on getting an OLED TV in 2017 but a failure of my trusty PS3 meant I had to purchase a new source player first so I could keep watching my movie collection.

    The timing was about right as Oppo released the 203 just as I was looking around at the available players and this one nailed it on everything I needed. I own DVD-Audio disks, SACD, Blu-ray audio and lots of DVD's and Blu-Rays and 3D Blu-Rays so this met all my requirements.

    Sound is tremendous, watching The Force Awakens through my Pioneer AV amp and KEF XQ speakers the room fills with sound. I'm watching through a Pioneer Plasma at the moment and there isn't a hint of any picture issues at all. Compared to the PS3 all the disc procedures (loading, moving to chapters) are much faster, which is to be expected anyway.

    Listening to a Blu-Ray audio or DVD-Audio disc is also fantastic and I'm glad I can keep listening to these special recordings.

    The player is built well and although I keep everything on a hifi stand my equipment unfortunately does get dusty quickly. So the fact there are no fans or vents to get clogged up is a bonus for me as well.

    Lots of extra connections for all types of systems is a plus over some of the competition and Oppo seem to be one of the few companies that genuinely provide software updates for their players. Mine has already had two updates since I've had it!

    Negatives? Well I've read about hardware glitches with this player although I've yet to experience anything (the problems seem to revolve around 4k play) and make sure you have a lead as the player comes with a Euro style kettle lead rather than a three pin UK plug. No problem as I had a high grade cable at home.

    Will be interesting to see how the player deals with 4k once I get the TV in the new year but for those of you thinking about it and you have the money you can't do much better than this player. If I can I'll update this review later in the year.
