Good luck trying to get your hands on a 205, prices have gone through the roof, Oppo was, and still is, still the best choice as a DVD and preamp to active speaker set up.

I will have to find one to make sure that if the current 105D fails I have backup.

Just picked up on this story now & I was very surprised to read it.

As the owner of ~ 1,300 unripped blu rays & DVDs I'm quite tempted to buy a 203 before they disappear. Also, I'd like to add fuel to the 'the silver disc isn't dead' argument; Bluray sales are close to record highs & even if they dwindle over the coming years there will always be people who like to own things. I can see both arguments but the (relatively) healthy vinyl sales, decades after 'better' formats came along, suggests that blu rays & DVDs could yet see decades of production.

I buy blu rays & also subscribe to Sky Movies out here in Italy; the BDs always perform faultlessly, the Sky offering often has picture breakup & other annoyances that I could do without.

As an aside to this story, we recently spent a few weeks in SE Asia & the number of selfies taken by the locals is off the scale. Some younger girls, in particular, can spend half an hour in one spot taking them. No, I'm not exaggerating.

There were Oppo logos everywhere & at first I wondered if I'd be able to pick up a 203 for pennies but my investigations quickly showed me that the Oppo retailers were selling smart phones. The weapon of choice appeared to be the Oppo F5 so I googled it & it turned out to have a class-leading selfie camera; everything slotted into place!

Perhaps Oppo are making so much money from selling F5 phones that they have lost interest in Bluray players!

Oppo are number 4 in the world for smartphones, which given I've never seen one in the flesh means they are selling a shedload in Asia.


Sooloos, Roon, G series (with LPS upgrade), 800 series (with LPS upgrade), HD621, AC200, Prime and PS, DSPs old and new.

Purdeys, Moke, Leica, 'Blad. Only the best.

I'm currently in south east Asia and the Oppo disc spinners are only marginally cheaper than at home
(Vietnam). I used a hotel laptop to check the prices and was hoping to squeeze one home in my luggage
But saw little point.

Oppo on their North American web site are seeking interest by registering your email for a Oppo 205, they are out of inventory at present, if enough interest is shown a last production run expected in June 2018.

Whilst it states the unit is for the North American market, units are readily able to be configured for world wide use.

Presumably the cost will still be US1,299
