"Great universal player and an absolute bargain"5.0 starson by soloz2
Pros: Universal Disc player
great sound quality out of the analog outputs
great support from Oppo
costs 9x less than competing universal players
Cons: none that I've found and I've had this player since before the public release
Summary: For anyone with DVD-A or SACD library, or anyone interested in high rez music this player is huge. Not only does the BDP-83 offer some of the best blueray and DVD upconversion, but it is a true performer. With a regular CD via the analog outputs it is nearly as good as my PartsConnexion modded Music Hall CD25, a player that costs double and isn't a universal player at that.
Check out the Denon DVD-A1UDCI at $4500.00 or the Marantz UD9004 at $5999.99 and then tell me the Oppo BDP-83 is expensive for what you get!
