Coming Soon: The Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray Player

1oppo_logoLast week we talked about the Denon DVD-A1UCDI that was your all around universal everything.  This week we bring to you its competitor which packs alot of the same universatility, at a more affordable price!  The Oppo BDP-83 will output SACD via HDMI and also has a DSD to analog conversion that bypasses PCM convert.  Anchor Bay provides the video processing.  The BD profile will be 2.0/ BD-Live.  It boasts bitstream output of Dolby Digital Plus, as well as DTS-HD Master Audio by onboard decoding.  All in a Blu-ray player, not a receiver, this is sure to keep the video buffs and audiophiles happy.  Oh yeah, the price, yeah well unlike the competitors $3,500 price tag this one is MSRP’ing in at or around the $499 -$599 range. Yes, I did say “MSRP’ing”  :-p





In result of our reader Jesse’s comments we contacted Oppo and the player is “anticipated” to release in March.  They also agreed that the players MSRP is still set at or around $499-$599.  I like the MSRP as then we could see it alot lower with sale prices. 🙂
