I just watched the unboxing on Listening Posts YouTube channel - they open the player up so you can see its internals.

 

Still, to me, it looks like another Blu-ray player...

Rokki, what are you running it with, a 4K TV or projector? Where did you purchase from, did you manage to get any discount?

 

Thanks

Hi got mine from Paul at AV World MT Eden and no discount wasn't that worried Paul has looked after me in the past. I have it going into a 4K Samsung SUHD LCD 55inch 8000 Series

The picture is nothing short of stunning. Audio is impressive as well compared to my UB900 Panny.

I have the UB900 too, however am wondering if it's worth upgrading as they should be the same picture and sound quality wise playing UHD discs?

The 203 is in another league.

Can you take photos to demonstrate?

 

I find it hard that 1s and 0s can be read and interpreted so differently..

Unfortunately I have already got rid of the UB900.

But from my observations motion is silky smooth , colours appear more vibrant. Dvd's look better than on the Panny.

The Panny was a very good player. But as I said prior this is in a different league. I can now play my SCAD's and DVD Audio discs again.

 So I bit the bullet and picked one up from the guys at Paul Money in Albany

 

Running through a 65" Panny TH 800AX, and a Yamaha 3060 Aventage

 

Just binge watched Lucy, Oblivion, and Deadpool

 

Reasonably easy to set up, and BEAUTIFUL to watch and listen

 

Not cheap, but IMHO over engineered but in a good way;)

Wee bit of a discount as I was trading in my "old" RX 3040 receiver and non 4K Oppo player, and also got the RX 3060 receiver as an upgrade
