Oppo Blu-ray Players
The Oppo Blu-ray players are well known among home theater enthusiasts. Oppo offers the absolute best player on the market with the BDP-103, available since late November 2012. In a category of product where picture quality is generally uniform across the board, the Oppo BDP-103 is head and shoulders above the rest.
The BDP-103’s premium Marvell Kyoto-G2H video processor has less annoying artifacts, and provides crisper images and more stunning colors. The end result is the best possible picture from any Blu-ray player on the market today. Additionally, the BDP-103 sports all of the high end video features you’d expect from a home theater device in this class, such as 24Hz video for 24fps flicker free playback. This provides a real theater experience with Source Direct mode or outputting content without any processing, and 4K upscaling.
The BDP-103 also supports lossless Dolby TrueHD audio via its HDMI 1.4a output and bit-stream output of DTS-HD Master Audio for improved audio quality. The unit has two HDMI outs so you can dedicate one for video and one for audio for even crisper media output.

As far as Cinema Therapy goes, the Oppo definitely increases the therapeutic experience because the improved picture and sound quality make the viewing experience seem incredibly real.
