Performance

 

Oppo DV-981HD

Excellent image quality; upscaling to 1080p over HDMI; attractive, understated black design; multichannel SACD and DVD-Audio over HDMI; DivX/Xvid support; aspect-ratio control; can be made region-free with a simple hack.

Worth it only for use with 1080p TVs with an HDMI input; no component video output.

Performing nearly as well as players costing four times the price, the Oppo DV-981HD is an unbeatable bargain for videophiles and enthusiasts.

So by now you have figured that the Oppo DV-981HD sounds brilliant in theory. It has a ton of features, and is very well designed. But what good are all these features if they don't work properly? What if it chokes on deinterlacing? Is the upscaling...

Oppo DV-981HD Upconvert DVD Player

 

I have a large DVD collection.  I am not yet all that excited about investing in Blu-ray where I get to pay twice as much for each new title.  Although many HD televisions perform certain image upconvert functions (to improve the way standard TV and...

OPPO Digital DV-981HD Upconverting DVD/SACD/DVD-Audio Player

 

For those HDTV owners who prefer to take a "wait and see" attitude toward the next generation DVD format war, Oppo's DV-981HD will allow you to squeeze every last drop of quality out of your existing DVDs while you wait for a winner.

All in all, when watching DVDs on the OPPO DV-981HD, it was easy to forget that I wasn't watching real high definition material. Instead of a select few titles available on HD-DVD or Blu-ray Disc, I got to enjoy all of my DVDs on a large screen 1080p...

Review: Oppo DV-981HD DVD Player

 

If you just bought a new high definition TV with the latest HDMI connections you probably want to make sure everything you plug into it looks its best. If you're ready to place your bet on the new high definition disc war (HD DVD or Blu-ray) then stop...

When I hooked the Oppo up to an LG plasma the differences were much clearer. The upscaled picture looked sharper and punchier when scaled to the plasma's native 720p resolution. Edges looked smoother and details more realistic. The Oppo also did a...

Oppo DV-981HD

 

With entry-level DVD players selling for around $49, some might question the wisdom of plunking down $229 for any new universal player. But what if we told you the player in question could compete with models up to five times its price in terms sound...

OPPO DV-981HD DVD Player Review

 

Upconversion can look great. But from our experience, it cannot match the detail and richness of an HD disc played back on a HD-DVD or Blu-ray player. No matter how good the video processor, and OPPO's Faroudja is exemplary, you need to fill in too...

OPPO DV-981HD DVD Player

 

As the current king of OPPO's well respected line of upconverting DVD players, the DV-981HD honors the crown with superb video and audio processing. The DV-981HD can expand a standard definition DVD to HD 1080p resolution, but it cannot playback high...

Excellent video quality., Free gold-plated HDMI cable., Great design., DivX-certified.
