The new UDP-205 from Oppo Digital is here, and it's an absolute stunner! It's not often that a single player does everything well, but this unit plays CD, DVD, 4K UHD Blu-ray, SACD and plenty more, with superb picture and audio quality. Indeed, Oppo's focus with the UDP205 has been creating a player to satisfy the most demanding audiophiles.
It's an upgrade over the highly-acclaimed UDP-203 and UDP 105 models, with audio improvements that include:
Reference-level audio quality via balanced XLR or RCA outputs
Two ES9038PRO DACs - the flagship ESS Sabre Pro DACs
Upgraded headphone amp connected directly to the DAC
The UDP-205 was only released last weekend in the USA (April 22, 2017) so reviews are thin on the ground as yet, but Audioholics have given it a 'Gotta have it!' status in their first look. We'll post more here as they come through.
