The new U.S. beta firmware for the Oppo 205 UHD player "adds support for MQA audio files ".

Oppo205-MQA

Is there any reason that this cannot happen for the 203 player ?

Where it says 20X, one could assume that it applies to both tbe 203 and the 205.


861v8, 808v6, DSP5200SE, DSP7200.2HC, M6, QNAP TS451, 218 various other bits.

Release Notes:
This release is for the Oppo UDP-20x 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc Player.
Comparing to the current Official release version UDP20X-51-0922, the major changes included in this version are:
1. Added support for MQA audio files on the UDP-205.
2. Improved compatibility for recently released and upcoming Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray discs and TV firmware.
...
Mentions 20x everywhere except the MQA reference which seems to be specifically for 205.

Maybe this is just for the analogue outputs and so not really relevant for 203.

Just guessing...

I did check both players' manuals and they both have 7.1/5.1/2.0 analogue out although it’s obviously been upgraded in 205.

It interests me because before I bought the 203 last Christmas I e-mailed Oppo and enquired about their intentions regarding MQA and was told they had no plans to support it. It would be a real pity as they recently became Roon-Ready enabled and there has been a lot of lobbying to get Roon to support MQA (beyond Tidal) and I expect the 203 would comfortably outsell 205.
