Oppo Digital DV-983H DVD Player - The Rest of the Story

 

While it is likely we will all be using HDMI from our DVD players to send both audio and video to our SSPs or receivers in the near future, measurement of the analog performance of players is still an indicator of build quality, and the Oppo DV-983H is...

Oppo DV-983H Flagship Universal DVD Player Review

 

If this player had been released two years ago we'd say that Oppo has stolen the market. Though it faces stiff competition from Blu-ray, the DV-983H may be the greatest affordable universal DVD player to hit the market.

Pristine video performance ; Bargain upconverting player ; Standard power cable

Tough sell in current marketplace ; Rudimentary bass management ; Fixed crossover (when engaged)

OPPO DV-983H DVD Player Review

 

In the world of upconverting DVD players, the OPPO DV-983H is a videophile's dream machine. It may be overkill for those less discriminating or with smaller displays.

OPPO DV-983H DVD Player

 

It's pricey, but as far as DVD players go, OPPO's DV-983H is as good as it gets.

The DV-983H's awesome picture performance and incredible feature list makes it one of the best DVD players we've come across, leaving OPPO's previous two decks looking like supermarket cheapies. But £300 is undeniably expensive for a DVD player no...

Oppo DV-983H

 

The Oppo is a bit of an oddity in today's home cinema market: yes it's a universal DVD/SACD player, but it doesn't play Blu-rays

Excellent upscaling ; fine sound quality when playing SA-CD discs via HDMI

Unfavourable exchange rates ; competition from Blu-ray Disc players ; looks a bit cheap

Product Specifications

DV-983H is the flagship model in OPPO's line of award-winning up-converting DVD players. Featuring Anchor Bay's leading video processing technologies, 7.1-channel audio, and 1080p HDMI up-conversion, the DV-983H Universal DVD Player delivers the breath-taking audio and video performance needed to make standard DVDs look their best on today's large screen, high resolution displays. The DV-983H provides a rich array of features for serious home theater enthusiasts. By applying source-adaptive, motion-adaptive, and edge-adaptive techniques, the DV-983H produces an outstanding image for any DVD, whether it's mastered from an original theatrical release film or from a TV series. Aspect ratio conversion and multi-level zooming enable users to take full control of the viewing experience - maintain the original aspect ratio, stretch to full screen, or crop the unsightly black borders. Special stretch modes make it possible to utilize the full resolution of ultra high-end projectors with anamorphic lens. For users with an international taste, the frame rate conversion feature converts PAL movies for NTSC output without any loss of resolution or tearing. Custom home theater installers will find the DV-983H easy to integrate into whole-house control systems, thanks to its RS-232 and IR IN/OUT control ports. To complete the home theater experience, the DV-983H produces stunning sound quality. Its 7.1 channel audio with Dolby Digital Surround EX decoding offers more depth, spacious ambience, and sound localization. Additionally, the player supports DTS Digital Surround, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro-Logic II to accommodate any sound track found on a DVD. Music lovers will enjoy the precise rendering of CD, Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio. The DV-983H incorporates high resolution 192kHz, 24-bit audio D/A converters, isolated power supply circuitry, and quality passive components to deliver clear treble, deep bass, and a broad dynamic range.
