  • OPPO UDP-203 Audiocom Reference
The Oppo UDP-203 Audiocom Reference is a true, high-end 4K UHD native Blu-ray player that delivers outstanding performance from video, HDMI digital audio (including optical and coaxial outputs), as well as exceptional sound quality from analogue audio.

The 203 Reference takes full advantage of the OPPO’s powerful quad-core image processing and builds on this platform by incorporating a custom version linear power supply, a femtosecond clock system, improved disc read accuracy, and circuitry housed in a quiet mechanical and electrical environment.

Custom Low Noise Linear Power Supply

Traditional 4K Blu-ray players use a switch mode power supply (SMPS) since it is cost effective and easy to implement. However, SMPS are noisy due to their high frequency switching, and this is manifest by noise on the power supplies as well as RFI/EMI noise. The 203 reference uses a custom linear power supply with multiple regulated supplies to deliver clean power to the video and audio circuitry. The whole spectrum of the players performance is considerably improved. Video playback has better resolution, greater depth, more detail, natural contrast, reduced picture noise, colour purity and improved image stability. There is a marked improvement in both digital and analogue audio, with better resolution, greater dynamics, improved sound-staging, and more natural harmonics

Femtosecond Processor Clock

It is widely recognised that low jitter clocks improve performance for audio, but less recognised is that low jitter is vital to achieve the best performance for video. For 4K Blu-ray players the clock jitter in video signal processors can be anywhere from 100-300 picoseconds inducing a reduction of picture quality and sound. In the 203 Reference player Audiocom utilise a custom, very low jitter clock for the OP8591 System on Chip with a jitter performance of 137 Femtoseconds (0.137 Picoseconds). As a result, picture quality is more natural with a cleaner, better defined image, digital and analogue sound is more dynamic, detailed and coherent.

Improved Disc Read Accuracy

Audiocom discovered during disc playback that reducing interference fields and resonances in the disc transport could improve the performance of video and audio quality. For the 4K disc loader they apply a specialist material layer coating developed to absorb electromagnetic (RFI/EMI) energy, reduce static and cancel out unwanted resonances. The result is improved disc read accuracy, with improved colours and textures for a more realistic picture quality.

Active EMI/RFI Noise Reduction and Damping

The operating conditions of video and audio are much improved when they can work in quiet environment. Inside any Blu-ray player the video processing generates its own noise as well as succumbing to external noise which can affect the players overall performance. To achieve the quietest electrical conditions, in the 203 reference Audiocom use materials to shield and absorb the unwanted EMI/RFI and mechanical energy.

  • OPPO UDP-203 Audiocom Signature
The Oppo UDP-203 Audicom Signature is a world reference native 4K UHD Blu-ray player capable of remarkable picture quality with stunning digital audio from movies and music delivering the ultimate home cinema experience. The UDP-203 Signature extracts the full measure of performance from video, HDMI digital audio (including optical and coaxial outputs), as well

There are several reasons why the 203 signature pushes the technology above any other 4K UHD native universal Blu-ray player. There is absolutely no compromise made in the quality of components and design, all units are meticulously assembled for the best possible performance.

Custom Low Noise Linear Power Supply

Ordinarily Blu-ray player’s use switch mode power supplies (SMPS). The switching from these power supplies introduce noise which inevitably is introduced to the circuitry. Due to the high frequency switching of these supplies they also create RFI which in turn affects the video and audio signal.

In contrast, the 203 signature utilises a top-end linear power supply with multiple regulated supplies; these regulators are specially selected for their low noise performance to delivery quiet, clean power to the circuitry. The benefit is a significant improvement in all spectrum of the players performance. For video, there is greater detail, truer colours, a more dynamic contrast, improved image stability, and better depth. Digital and analogue audio is also notably improved with better timing, increased resolution, greater depth, and improved sound-stage.

Femtosecond Reference Video Clock

All commercially available 4K Blu-ray players use standard clocks for the video processing. A “High-End” Blu-ray player may employ a low jitter clock for the audio, but the System on Chip clock (SoC) is a standard clock oscillator circuit with jitter values typically of 100-300 picoseconds. In a similar way that a low jitter clock will reduce phase noise (jitter) for the audio signal, a very low jitter clock for video processing will reduce jitter and noise in the video spectrum.

In the 203 signature Audiocom adopt a unique approach to removing jitter in the video spectrum by employing an ultra-low jitter reference clock for the OP8591 SoC. The Reference clock has a measured jitter performance of 77 Femtoseconds (0.077 Picoseconds - RMS: 100 Hz to 100 KHz) and +/- 0.5ppm stability, amongst the lowest jitter in the industry. The end result is a more realistic looking picture quality with remarkable detail and 3D depth. There is no trace of picture noise, no artifacts, the image is natural and precise. Watching a movie is less fatiguing as the transitions are more easily interpreted by the eye.

Custom, Precision CNC Parts: When a Blu-ray or SACD disc is played the high speed can cause unwanted vibrations and reduced disc read accuracy. Audiocom’s newly designed 4K disc transport modifications use custom made, precision CNC parts to replace mechanical components in the drive with highly precise and extremely rigid materials. This ensures rigid disc clamping and resonance control, providing the highest level of data retrieval and lowest jitter.

Active AC Noise Reduction

In conventional audio/video equipment a traditional mains filter is used and while the better quality filters remove a degree of noise they are inadequate, often introducing negative effects. For the 203 Signature, Audiocom utilise two different types of unconventional solutions that remove noise and provide uninhibited current flow. The benefits are a picture quality that is more immersive and palpable. The sound has an enhanced perception of space and dimensionality, with improved coherence and naturalness.

Active EMI/RFI Noise Reduction and Damping

The operating conditions of video and audio are much improved when they can work in quiet environment. Inside any Blu-ray player the video processing generates its own noise as well as succumbing to external noise which can affect the players overall performance. To achieve the quietest electrical conditions, in the 203 Signature, Audiocom use materials to shield and absorb the unwanted EMI/RFI and mechanical energy to achieve constantly the best performance regardless of the surroundings

Audio Power Supplies

Analogue audio sound quality is largely influenced by its power supply. Audiocom’s goal is to reduce unwanted noise and losses that affect the signal, less noise = cleaner signal and purer sound. In the 205 Reference they have upgraded the analogue power supplies to achieve maximum fidelity for 2-channel and 7.1-channel audio.

Femto Clock

To realise the full potential of the ES9038PRO chipset Audicom have to achieve lowest phase noise (jitter). The clock selected for the 205 Reference has an astounding 68 Femtoseconds jitter RMS (frequency measurement 100 Hz to 100 KHz), that’s 0.068 Picoseconds, amongst the lowest in the industry. The clock utilizes ultra-low noise discrete regulator circuitry, 1.1nV/√Hz @1KHz with a PSRR of 132 db @ 6V. The implementation of this femto clock fully optimises the ES9038PRO so its full potential can be realised.
