Isn't that model 110V? Since it is low wattage type of equipment,
unlikely to blow but may have unstable operation.
The box may indicate that it's 110V, but sometimes the power section has a universal voltage.

Nothing. You simply take a chance based on what others have reported.

Can confirm. This guy is located in San Fran, and his unit's power supply has a 450V capacitor.
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/149-bl...l#post55337292

Often, products are labelled as for a particular voltage / a particular country / a particular country's voltage for various reasons unrelated to the actual performance. Certifications is one of them, $$$ is one of them, but the most common is perhaps the connector.

This is also a good way to segregate the market, by making people scared.

Isn't that model 110V? Since it is low wattage type of equipment,

If you plug a product that cannot work with 230V into 230V, it will blow regardless of how much wattage it is.

The 205 is known as a solid audiophile player, but the upscaling is only as good as the 203 which is inferior to the 105/103 and the 95/93 and so on..
I assume you have a very good TV, such as a Sony Z9D? Tests elsewhere has shown that the TV chip is superior to the chip within the Oppo.

I had a 105D been using it for 2 years it does make a great difference in term of visual quality as compare to my ps4 pro playing bluray & upscaling dvd on 105D were not bad...my upcoming projector is a Sony vw360es....so needed a 4k output so thinking of 205 but it doesn't have the darbeevision like my 105D so wonder how great is the upsampling

Take note Oppo have recently announced exit from Blu ray player market.
https://www.engadget.com/2018/04/03/oppo-uhd-blu-ray/

As for up-scaling performance wise from 1080p.
TV upscaling is much better than player upscale features.
For your case is projector and that Sony projector does
pack quite a lot of powerful features.

Just curious do you have 4K UHD Disc?
Need not buy there is place to rent 4K UHD disc in SG.

Just curious why not settle for 1080p than 4K since your contents
are in 1080p?
Are you using a AV receiver or a surround processor with your blu ray player?

As in my coy, certain venues usually we use a normal blu ray
player from Sony than it is connected to a surround processor.
However it is not all places have such setup due to cost so small rooms usually we use a HDMI converter so can connect to mixer and etc.

It's very rare to find a Blu ray player with XLR except Oppo, Cambridge which even AV industry don't use due to the high cost.
