de-DEen-US

 

The tuning for Oppo UHD players UDP203 & 205 is now available.

 

This upgrade sets new standards in the UHD sector in terms of quality, completely redefining the image and sound for Ultra HD Blu-ray. Numerous modifications to the power supply and the mainboard result in unprecedented image sharpness and color intensity, making top discs like the latest X-Men appear almost photorealistic. The dynamics, resolution, and differentiation of the HDMI sound with the Ultimate Modification surpass our previous Blu-ray reference UD7007CM4 in all disciplines.

We offer three modification levels:

Level 1 includes a basic optimization of the device, including power supply modification, filtering and buffering of the main voltages on the mainboard, and optimization of the drive control. In Level 2, the power supply filtering is further enhanced, and a significantly higher effort is made on the mainboard, up to the replacement of the SMD 0402 filters around the main processor.

The Ultimate Modification incorporates insights from 10 months of further development, making the Oppo the absolute reference device. Here, additional previously untouched areas of the player are optimized, including the replacement of the clocks.

Demonstration appointments can be arranged at any time. The current waiting time is approximately 4 weeks.

Final Edition Upgrade 2020

The Cinemike Final Edition modification is now available for the 20x Oppos. This last tuning stage incorporates all new insights and component combinations since the completion of the Ultimate Modification 1.5 years ago. Large parts of the mainboard modification, especially the area of local voltage regulators, have been reconsidered, and their entire circuitry/filtering has been replaced. Even when updating an Ultimate Player, over 100 SMD components are replaced.

The player performs even more precisely and with greater detail with the Final Edition modification. The image performance has also been further improved.

In addition, we offer extensive modifications for the two analog boards of the UDP-205.



This includes optimizing the filtering and stabilization of the analog and DAC power supply, as well as replacing components in the analog path.
Also adjusted is the SMD-based output filtering.

The device sounds much more balanced afterward, with increased resolution and dynamics, making it also very suitable as a minimalist AV preamplifier.

Optimized Settings for Cinemike Oppos:

Here you will find the optimal settings we have identified for maximum video & audio quality:

These settings are based on firmware version 20XEU-60-0625. We recommend performing a factory reset after each update! All settings not listed here remain at factory defaults.

 

Video Output:

  • Resolution: "Source Direct"
  • Resolution Selection: "1080P Auto"
  • Color Space: "YCbCr 4:2:2"

The player performs best when it applies minimal processing. For almost all content, we use "Source Direct". Only for discs with interlaced content (576i, 1080i, etc.), we switch to the pre-selected 1080P Auto resolution using the resolution button.

 

Audio Output Setup:

  • HDMI Audio Format: "Bitstream"

Since the last update, this setting sounds better than the "Auto" setting ;-)

 

Audio Processing:

  • Dynamic Range Control: "Off"
  • Filter Characteristic: "Min-Phase-Slow"
  • Speaker Configuration: All speakers set to Large / 7.1 Downmix
  • Crossover Frequency: "250 Hz"
  • Stereo Signal: "Front L/R" (Only for 205)

Again, these settings aim to minimize processing/computational load. These settings significantly affect performance in purely digital output scenarios, and the difference is noticeable in an optimized setup with modified players. If using analog outputs, adjust settings accordingly to your setup.
