Amazing Upgrade for Oppo 93/103 and CA Players

There are plenty of modders who do full service on the Oppo players. But I have come across an amazing upgrade that can be done by anyone in 5 minutes.

Dr Lee Jaehong is based in South Korea and makes a replacement linear power supply for the Oppo and Cambridge Audio Blu-ray players.

You just take out the 5 screws for the old SMPS, and drop the new LPM in. Nothing difficult. I actually have a Cambridge Audio BD751, and the upgrade was pretty dramatic for audio and video, in every aspect.

Apparently many are saying this power supply in the Oppo103 takes it past the level of 105, and you get all round better video quality as a bonus.
You didn't say no financial interest etc yada yada.... that is usually followed by "just a happy customer." What are we to believe???
Can we please just park the word "AMAZING" by the side of the road and let somebody tow it away, especially when describing anything to do with electronics.
okay... amazing for the money, $280. I am getting much better sound from this linear power supply than the external DAC's I had of a similar price rnage such as the Bifrost and Audio-GD.

Mechans, I have no financial interest. This mob is based out of South Korea.
And let's assume the warranty is voided.
Faint heart n'e'r won fair maiden.

I voided my Oppo 103 warranty before I ever received the unit.
Yes, warranty is voided it really? ;)
The linear power supply is 5 screws and some plugs. You can always.... ahem, swap the old power supply back in if you have to.
Agisthos, thanks for this! I find it amazing and amusing that the initial response of posters here was to snark and snipe.

I'll definitely consider this.

I can suggest another DIY mod, that works amazingly well:

Very easy to install, completely reversible, and a significant audio and video improvement for my Oppo 103.
Nice find Acostas, I just ordered one to try out.

I just hope its real Mundorf silver/gold wire. I have used that wire before to jump fuses and it works very well on the power side of things.
Thanks Agisthos and Acostas.
These mods seem pretty straightforward.
By the way, are you two the fourth and fifth Musketeers?

All the best,
Does anyone know if HongKong Basket makes the above mentioned IEC mod for an OPPO 83 SE?
Raks read my mind. I did a search and couldn't find anything.
I rather suspect it's not cost effective to stock parts or even take the time to evaluate mods for last year's models. The big push now is for OPPO 103 and 105.
Geoffkait makes a good point about the overhead associated with modding older Oppos. However, message the guy at HongKong basket. A genuine audiophile who seems to be eager to help and not just make a buck. We emailed a little about our systems.

Also, I ordered the mod kindly brought to our attention by Agisthos. That modder is really nice, too. I only use separate HDMI outs for video and audio, and I asked about the improvement. He claims the HDMI signal will in fact have the largest improvement.

I'll report back about my experience. He's saying 7-10 days shipping to Illinois from South Korea.
If you only use HDMI, then you can disconnect the power from the audio board and isolate it completely.
I E-mailed HongKong Basket and got a response saying the IEC kit that’s made for the Oppo 103's and 105's will also work in an Oppo 83 SE the only difference being the length of the wire leads for the 83 SE is a little shorter. The E-mail response said when ordering to mention the kit is for an 83 SE to prompt them to supply the shorted leads.

With all the tweaking I do with power cords, fuses and Quantum Chips, this mod seems like a no-brainer.
While we are listing tweaks, one that is very good is the Audio Magic Pulse Gen ZX. I got the idea from EVS (Tweak Audio) oppo mods page.

You connect it to your IEC terminals, it uses power to create some sort of ambient field that treats everything within a short distance, and works best in digital players and dac's. (anything with high frequency noise)

Using Dr Lee's LPM and the Pulse Gen ZX together, takes my Cambridge Audio player to a high level of refinement. Without these two tweaks I think this player has a fatiguing and harsh digital type sound.
