Oppo BDP-80

 

Oppo's BDP-80 Blu-ray player doesn't perform well enough to make up for its lack of Wi-Fi, streaming media features, and 3D Blu-ray support.

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive; solid build quality; SACD and DVD-Audio playback; 7.1 analog outputs; swift operational speed.

No streaming media services like Netflix; lacks built-in Wi-Fi; does not support 3D Blu-ray; bare-bones user interface; DVD performance lags slightly behind competing players; relatively expensive for its feature set.

Oppo BDP-80 Universal Blu-ray Player First Look

 

The BDP-80 is the new universal player from Oppo. That means that not only does it play Blu-rays and DVDs but also SACDs and DVD-As. With just a few corners cut, the BDP-80 comes in at only $289.

There are a few that will look at the above lists of differences and feel that one (or more) is a deal breaker. The upside is that the BDP-80 is still a remarkable value at $500. For $289, the BDP-80 is ridiculous. So, who should buy the BDP-80? The...

Oppo BDP-80 – affordable universal disc player

 

$500 priced the Oppo BDP-83 is one of the best performing Blu-ray disc players in the market. Now, the company has released – the Oppo BDP-80 that costs $290 with quite similar functionality of the BDP-83. However, it lacks inbuilt Wi-Fi and media...

For the price of this Blu-ray player, you could buy two of any other brand.

Across the board, this Blu-ray player receives glowing user reviews

This Blu-ray player isn't Energy Star qualified

If you're willing to drop a pretty penny, the Oppo BDP-80 would be an ideal candidate. It has every bell and whistle you could possibly want in a Blu-ray player, minus being energy efficient. Extremely user-friendly, this Blu-ray disc player has...

Oppo has injected a lot of experience and engineering from the BDP-83 to the BDP-80. The build quality as well as video and audio performance are streets ahead of players at this price point. For $289, the BDP-80 is ridiculous. If you are looking for a...

Oppo Digital BDP-80 Universal Disc Player

 

Oppo's Blu-ray players have received the accolade of being used as the internal guts of high-price players from high-end brands. Does this new lower-cost unit keep up the performance heights?

Able to change performance parameters and resolution on-the-fly ; SACD and DVD Audio support ; Multi-region

No force film deinterlacing mode ; No seamless layer change for DVDs

If you have a display with top-class deinterlacing, or perhaps a recent AV receiver with similar (they will need manual film/video overrides to significantly improve performance), then you will find the Oppo Digital BDP-80 excellent. Especially if you...

Price and quality are unsurpassed.

 

I owned two other Blu Rays before this one. The video quality was OK. This player makes the colors jump out at you and is the best of the three.It's lack of bells and whistles-its simplicity of operation makes it ideal for the unsophisticated

Slow loading Blu Rays

Product Specifications

The BDP-80 is a full-featured universal Blu-ray Disc player that supports BD Profile 2.0 (BD-Live and BonusView), DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD (SACD), HDCD, CD and other popular media formats such as AVCHD, MKV video files, digital photos and music. Sharing the same decoder and similarly optimized firmware as OPPO's award-winning BDP-83, the BDP-80 features fast disc load times, quick response to user operations, and robust audio and video controls. The BDP-80 design has been optimized for use as a digital audio/video transport, emphasizing the accuracy of its digital audio/video outputs. At the same time, the BDP-80 is versatile enough to be used as a stand-alone universal Blu-ray player, thanks to its full array of output connections and audio/video decoding capabilities. For video, the BDP-80 features an HDMI 1.3 port that supports 1080p Full HD, 1080p 24Hz, deep color and source direct modes. Component video, S-video and composite video connections are also available for legacy analog displays. In addition to its faithful reproduction of high-definition pictures on Blu-ray Discs, the player can up-convert DVD from standard definition up to 1080p to maximize DVD picture quality. Its "Source Direct" output mode makes the BDP-80 incredibly well suited as a digital transport to feed into an external video processor, a high-end A/V receiver or display device with built-in video processing. Unique features such as subtitle shift and vertical stretch zoom mode makes the player an ideal source component for home theaters with 2.35:1 CIH (Constant Image Height) displays. For audio, the BDP-80 supports internal decoding and bitstream output of the latest sound formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio. The BDP-80 also features a configurable 7.1-channel analog output that can be set as 7.1-channel, 5.1-channel, or stereo. When playing SACD, the BDP-80 can output DSD (Direct Stream Digital) over HDMI in its native format or convert it into high-resolution PCM. For compatibility with many legacy A/V receivers and DACs, the BDP-80 also provides an optical and coaxial digital audio output.
