It's been a while since we've heard from Oppo but they've finally announced a followup for the legendary BDP-93 and BDP-95.  The pair of players bring a lot to the table that weren't offered in the previous models, including a few features that you're not going to find on other players. With Oppo, you can almost assume that great video is included, and the Marvell Qdeo processing they've packed into the new BDP-103 and BDP-104 with shows that assumption to be correct.  The player upscales to 1080p of course, but also to 4K for your future TV or projector.  It also converts 2D to 3D.

Now that's a lot of video processing for your DVDs and Blu-rays, but what about your cable box and game systems?  The Oppo BDP-103 and BDP-105 feature a pair of HDMI inputs for content that you'd like to run through the processing that's built into the players.  The front facing HDMI port also doubles as an MHL input for your tablet and smartphone videos.

Oppo doesn't let you down on the audio front of course, supplying 7.1 channel analog outs on both players.  The BDP-105 steps things up significantly from there, by offering a pair of ESS Sabre32 Reference DACs, a Toroidal linear power supply and dedicated stereo outs with both RCA and XLR conections.

If you're concerned about streaming content, Oppo gives you that too.  Netflix, Pandora, Vudu, Film Fresh and YouTube streaming are all possible through Wi-Fi or wired connections.

The BDP-103 will be out in October at a price of $499.  The BDP-105 is expected by the end of the year at a price of $1,199.
