I wouldn't think the video scaler in the Oppo would affect the audio (he should still be able to get the uncompressed immersive stream out the 2nd output).

Thanks for the answer. Disadvantage here, since I am still waiting for the Oppo and do not have a 4K player to play with.

Update, I received an answer from Oppo:

Larry,
Yes, the player can down-scale to 1080p and be able to output Atmos and DTS:X to your receiver for processing and amplification.

Need help. I am on the waiting list for the new Oppo. In the meantime I bought the Samsung 4k player at Best Buy for 229.00. They have a 15 day return policy which I will return the day before it expires. I done this before while waiting on my earlier Oppo.

My question is my theater is a dedicated room and I play 100% Bluray movies. Is there any benefit to the oppo vs the Samsung? I do not stream anything...I only play bluray discs. Thanks in advance. I might also use it to insert a thumb drive for music once every few months but that is it.

Well, all of us on the Oppo 4K player pre-order list do hope that it will have a better build quality, more control over the picture, a better picture, a way better remote. No one can say with certainty until it comes out. But early reviews say yes - you will benefit with an Oppo vs the Samsung. Otherwise we wouldn't be getting one too !

Do you by any chance play SACDs? I ask this because the 103 has the capability of ripping SACDs to your HDD for playback...not sure if the new one will be able to or not, but it is a big plus in my book if it does. Don't ask Oppo though as it is not a feature, but is doable with a USB boot stick.

I use the oppo 103 with a darblet to run all video through it to the projector and use the video processor to lightly tweak picture settings depending on source. I don't think the Samsung has a hdmi input for other video sources and if so if the on board processor is as good as the oppo's.  It's not day and night improvements but does help on some hdtv program and occasionally on a bluray.  I assume correctly or incorrectly the 203 will allow the same and hopefully if darbee does release a 4K version that I would add that to the video chain since it's improvement is far more noticeable than the minor tweaks I do in the oppo video processor.

Slightly disappointed there's no Dolby Vision support (I think) but this will still be THE player to get. I'm just now hoping to jump into the 4k game but I've already been buying 4k blu-rays to future proof myself so I've already got plenty of media to throw at this thing.

What 4K Blu Rays even have DV ? I thought none at this time.

None yet but supposedly there will be next year. I am hopeful DV will catch on as I really like what I've read about it.

Sounds like there is a good chance the hardware necessary for DV is build into this player, so hopefully a firmware update sometime next year after Dolby certification will enable DV.

After visiting DV home page, i hope that it will never be implemented in anything, if the examples are anywhere near realistic to what DV do to the image.. Maybe its time to hope for a UHD Rec709 SDR 10bit format, so we have a chance of getting some high quality content.

Just use an HD Fury Integral. That way you can get better resolution and the wide color gamut, and leave it at that ! That's what I do. Looks outstanding.

So what gamma and max light output do you calibrate that to. UHD movies output in SDR still dont compare to HD SDR.
