Oppo DV-970HD review: Oppo DV-970HD


Oppo DV-970HD

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.

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 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...
