Product Description


Oppo's new flagship player, the UDP-205, replaces the widely acclaimed BDP-105. It offers even better picture and sound than its predecessor and of course features true 4K playback capability. There isn't another player we know of with this kind of versatility. 


Drawing from over a decade's worth of experience in advanced image processing technology and high fidelity audio performance, the UDP-205 is the perfect choice for discerning enthusiasts. The UDP-205 provides reference level sound quality through the analogue outputs, improves the clock precision of the HDMI audio output, and increases the power of the built-in headphone amplifier. For the analogue output stages, the UDP-205 utilises two ES9038PRO DACs, which are the flagship of the ESS Sabre Pro series, delivering best-in-class audio performance.

Build Quality

The first thing you notice about the Oppo UDP-205 is the size. In a world where everything seems to be getting smaller, the UDP-205 sticks to the tried and highly desired full-size component dimensions. It features a double-layered metal chassis with a brushed aluminium front panel, and it sits on a solid foundation of four machined metal feet. This practically eliminates vibration to keep the player's internal circuitry safe and its audio performance uncompromised.  

Looking under the lid shows why the circuits are worth protecting. You can quickly see that Oppo has separated the power supplies for both the digital and analogue circuitry. The benefit is to minimise and hopefully avoid any signal interference. They haven't skimped on anything and yes that's a custom-built toroidal transformer in the front left corner that provides clean power to the analogue audio circuitry.

With all that extra power, you might be worried about overheating. Don't fret. Oppo's engineers have strategically designed the ventilation system so that the internal components stay cool — without the use of a noisy fan.  

Superior Video Processing

The Oppo UDP-205 uses the same customised quad-core 4K video decoder/processor as the UDP-203. You'll be able to take full advantage of all the 3840 x 2160 pixels offered by 4K Blu-ray, along with the extended color range that makes the best 4K images look so rich and gorgeous. There's also a higher level of fine-tuning and tweaking available than with other 4K players, so you have full control over the picture on your screen. That special image processor can also make standard Blu-ray discs and DVDs look much better, too. There's even a 4K-ready HDMI input for your Apple TV or pay tv box. The UDP-205 is also capable of playing 4K media files and user generated content. Support for decoding the HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K, and Hi10P (10-bit) video codecs provides increased compatibility with user generated media. The UDP-205 supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut. The enhanced resolution, refined contrast, greater brightness, and expanded color produce stunning video with unparalleled clarity and detail. In addition to supporting the HDR10 format on discs and video files, it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion of HDR to SDR for older displays, as well as conversion between various color spaces such as BT.2020, BT.709, and BT.601.

Other Special Features

Check out the long list of quality features.

SABRE PRO Digital-to-Analogue Converters - Top of the Line Performance: The OPPO UDP-205 is equipped with two ESS Technology ES9038PRO 32-bit HyperStream DACs for both stereo and 7.1 channel analog audio. As the flagship of the ESS SABRE PRO series, the ES9038PRO sets a new benchmark for audio excellence with its best in class 140 dB of dynamic range.

HDMI Audio Jitter Reduction: The UDP-205 features a high-stability, high-precision HDMI clock and a special HDMI audio jitter reduction circuit. This unique design significantly reduces jitter and eliminates timing errors, allowing you to enjoy your music with increased accuracy when you use the audio-only HDMI output port for connecting the audio signal.

Asynchronous USB DAC and Coaxial/Optical Inputs: An asynchronous USB DAC input supports sample rates up to 768 kHz PCM and DSD 512. For additional convenience and flexibility, the UDP-205 can convert digital signals from cable and satellite boxes, televisions, video game consoles and other digital transports with coaxial and optical digital outputs to analog.

Dedicated Stereo Output with XLR Balanced Connectors: The stereo output section offers both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended connectors. By transmitting a pair of differential signals, the balanced output provides better common-mode noise rejection and improves signal quality.

Advanced Image Processing Technology: With over a decade of experience developing high-end DVD and Blu-ray players, OPPO has once again teamed with MediaTek to produce and manufacture a specialized 4K UHD Blu-ray decoder SoC - the quad-core OP8591, which offers the most advanced image decoding and processing technology available for 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and user generated media formats.

Custom-Made 4K Loader: The UDP-205's disc loader features an optimized laser mechanism that delivers super fast disc loading, compatibility with a wide range of optical media, strong error detection and correction to ensure error free physical media playback.

Lossless High-Resolution Audio: Audio format support has been expanded to multi-channel DSD64/128, as well as 192kHz/24-bit PCM used in high-resolution lossless formats such AIFF, ALAC, APE, FLAC and WAV. (DSD64 is played back in native mode or converted to PCM, DSD128 converted to PCM.)

Support for the Latest Surround Formats: In addition to supporting the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround formats, the UDP-205 supports bitstreaming the latest object-based surround formats, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. These new formats add overhead sound effects to create a greater impression of 3D-dimensionality.

Advanced Picture Control: The UDP-205 also features advanced picture controls. Adjustments can be made to brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and sharpness, allowing you to make adjustments to compensate for any limitations found in your other home theater components, or merely to adjust the image to your own personal taste.

Supports up to 4K@60 resolution with native 4:4:4 Color Space: The UDP-205 features support for all current SD, HD, and UHD resolutions, including 4K@60p, 4K@50p, 4K@30p, and 4K@24p using various color spaces such as PC RGB, Video RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0.

Diversified Media Support: The UDP-205 is able to play all universal disc formats, such as 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and CD. It has extensive media format support such as MKV, AVI, MP4, WAV, FLAC, APE, DSD, etc. It also supports connected USB hard disks and thumb drives, and has the ability to access content from DLNA servers and SMB shares over the local network.

High Resolution User Interface: The newly updated, high-resolution user interface has been designed to be incredibly convenient to navigate, and provides an easy way to manage and access media files from both local and network storage.

Easily Integrated into a Home Theatre System: The UDP-205 is easy to integrate into any system due to its ability to receive standard IR, RS-232, OPPO produced UDP-20X MediaControl smart device application, third party IP Control system, and HDMI CEC commands. The player also supports Trigger In and Out, so it can automatically turn on and off other devices connected to it for the ultimate convenience.

In The News

Audioholics have written a good introductory article on the UDP-205 which covers some of the differences beween it, the UDP-203 and previous models. In part they said: "Advanced engineering, rigorous parts selection, and rock-solid build quality are foundations to the UDP-205’s performance. The UDP-205’s audio circuitry is powered by a massive toroidal power supply, which provides a very clean and robust power source to the audio components. The brushed aluminum front panel and metal chassis continue the tradition of excellent workmanship found in previous generations of OPPO universal players. Four heavy-gauge machined feet provide a stable foundation for the UDP-205, and isolate it from outside vibration. A new double-layered chassis further enhances the rigidness and vibration-canceling capabilities. The internal layout and chassis design promote healthy air flow so critical components can be naturally cooled. Strategically placed heatsinks and ventilation grilles allow the UDP-205 run both cool and quiet without the need for internal or external fans. The high quality construction is designed to impress and to perform." They summed up their initial tests with the phrase: "Gotta have it!" Click here to read full review.
