Oppo DV-970HD review

 

DVD players are available for as little as $30, but anyone who's serious about image quality and performance needs to spend more, of course. But how much more? Prices can go as high as $850 (for the Denon DVD-2930CI ) and even higher--that's serious...

Excellent image quality; upconverts to 720p and 1080i output via HDMI; plays SACD, DVD-Audio, and DivX; flexible customization options, including aspect-ratio control; HDMI cable included; budget price.

The low-end look and feel bespeak its cheap price tag.

The Oppo DV-970HD delivers some of the best value for your DVD dollar that we've seen on upconverting players in terms of features and performance.

Oppo DV-970HD DVD Player Review

 

Oppo has seemingly cornered the market on buzz, becoming the “Apple Computer” of rumor and forum discussion. Following the success of their flagship (and still shipping) OPDV971H upconverting DVD

Excellent value for universal upconverting player ; HDMI 1.1 allows passing everything (including PCM-converted SACD) via HDMI audio ; Nice small form factor ; Component video good to 480p/576 output (720p/1080i on non copyrighted/CSS discs) ; Flash...

Cumbersome and lacking bass management and distance delay options for DVD-Audio & SACD ; HDMI audio sounds somewhat compressed and narrows soundstage ; Disc navigation, menu and setup functionality impossible without remote

Oppo Digital DV-970HD Universal Player

 

Oppo Digital is slowly but surely earning a reputation for building products that, in car enthusiasts' parlance, are sleepers: that is, components that appear to be modest in price and appearance, but in fact turn out to be giant killers. I can think...

Oppo Digital DV-970HD CD, SACD, DVD-A/V Player

 

Taken on its own terms, the Oppo DV-970HD is remarkably versatile, handling all manner of discs -- CDs, DVDs, SACDs, DVD-As, DivX, Kodak Picture CDs -- as well as upconversion to 1080i via its HDMI output. Oppo even throws in a decent HDMI cable. It...

OPPO DV-970HD DVD Player Review

 

For the last year or so the majority of the conversations I've had about budget DVD players, inevitably end up with “have you seen the OPPO?” to which I would reply, “Not yet, no”. Well thankfully those days are over and I don't have to be a...

Now I finally understand what all the hubbub is about, the OPPO's offer a taste of the high-end for relative peanuts, notice I said taste. The OPPO DV-970HD does indeed offer quite a bit in the way of features and performance considering its Now I...
