Oppo BDP-83

 

The Oppo BDP-83 is an outstanding universal disc player with excellent performance on Blu-rays and DVDs and lightning-fast operational speed, but most home theater fans will balk at the high price.

Universal disc player capable of handling Blu-ray, DVD, SACD, DVD-Audio and CD; outstanding image quality on Blu-rays and DVDs; best-in-class operational speed and stability; 7.1 analog outputs; feels built to last; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD...

Expensive; competing players offer comparable performance on vast majority of Blu-ray movies; no Wi-Fi for BD-Live features; lacks streaming media services like Netflix and Pandora.

Oppo BDP-83

 

In 2006, Internet-direct merchant Oppo Digital caught a lot of attention by serving up super high-performance video and audio playback with its DV-970HD up-converting DVD player. Since then, Oppo has taken its success and poured it into improving and...

Superb picture and audio quality ; Extremely fast ; Plays back SACD, DVD-Audio and many other formats ; Solid build ; 6’ HDMI cable included

Lacks streaming media support (Netflix, Youtube, etc.) ; No built-in wireless support ; Price tag may be a bit steep for some

We feel that the device’s stellar performance and considerable build quality more than make up for any shortcomings.
