Our modification for the Oppo UDP 203 & 205 is now available!
In the Oppo we do as usual changes to the power supply incl. better components on the critical spots to better stabilize the voltages in all working conditions. Also we add & change parts in the mains filtering to better supres the noise generated by the unit and better reject the noise coming from outside. On the mainboard we add stabilisation and filtering to the drive control circuit and the local voltage regulators.
Additionaly in level 2 we add a second custom build screened filter stage before the powersupply wich isn´t like the standart one located in the field of the powersupply to further improve the mains noisefloor in booth directions. Also we only in level 2 change the smd filters around the mainprocessor to types with much better high frequency damping and change much more parts on the mainboard.
Booth mods in the end improve the inner working conditions of the player, lower the digital noisefloor and high frequency interference transmission of the HDMI Signal and lower the mains noise generated by the unit. This results in much more precise sound with improved resolution & orignal micro & macro dynamics reproduction. The picture benefits in the same way wich results in improved sharpness and through the lower noisefloor in an improved black level and more original color reproduction.
Level 2 does more improvement in all of this points and only level 2 nearly completely adresses the main problem of the original unit wich is a performance decrease in high bandwith/ high load situations like UHD playback.
Now with the Ultimate modification you get the efforts of 10 month additional development, making the Oppo a true reference grade source. Before untouched regions of the player like internal drive circuits or the clocks are now also modified to maximum.
