Oppo BDP-83 review


Ever since standalone Blu-ray players hit the market, there's been a great deal of anticipation for an Oppo Blu-ray player, mainly because of the company's reputation for making excellent upconverting DVD players . Oppo held out for quite some time,...

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.

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.
