Oppo DV-980H Universal DVD player: Audio Performance

 

Oppo Digital is a very rare light among the stifling mediocrity found in most low to middle priced digital audio and video electronics. Readers of this website know that we all have a virtually uniform love for their products, and it is for extremely...

OPPO DV

 

DVD players get no respect. Was it only a couple of years ago that DVDs and DVD hardware were the darling of the consumer electronics industry? Studios were making money hand over fist as consumers gobbled up new DVD movie and TV show releases....

Upscales DVDs to full 1080p over HDMI. Support for DVD-A and SACD. Lots of file formats supported. DivX certified.

Can't play back WMV files. SACD support is limited to just file playback. Noise reduction in high-noise scenes is limited. Audio playback lacks depth.

OPPO ships a nifty DVD player offering high end features at a not-so-high end price. Video playback isn't perfect, but it's still pretty darned good.

Oppo DV980H review

 

This feature-packed player lacks the performance punch of its bigger bro'

Masses of features ; Surround EX output ; Wide format compatibility

Flaky video up-conversion ; Prone to lock-ups

Crammed full of nifty features, but the upscaled pictures are hit and miss at best

OPPO DV-980H DVD Player

 

We were very impressed with OPPO's DV-981HD DVD player, but can this model bowl us over again?

OPPO is destined for big things in the UK if it continues to make DVD players as good as this. The DV-980H's feature list reads like an A-Z of DVD technology, boasting a host of appealing features like multiregion compatibility, HDMI v1.2 and a USB...

i bought this unit because i have an older onkyo receiver with no HDMI, but it has 7.1 analog inputs, so i can decode hi-res audio on the Oppo and use the analog outs to send to the Onkyo (remember, digital s/pdifwill not handle high bit rates like...

supports dvd audio and SACDhas 7.1 analog outputs lets you capture your own

the fast forward on divx discs isn't as good as it could be (slow)
