Re: Oppo Digital BDP-83 Universal Player Review

I am very impressed with mine. I highly recommend it. Oppo has top notch support as well. I don't think you'd be disappointed if you bought it.

My Dynamic 2T, 2CC and 1S home theater builds. My 2 channel RBR build.

This looks like an excellent choice for my home theater! I had never heard of Oppo before joining HTS, but started doing research on the Oppo BDP-83. Besides the price tag, everyone seems very happy with this unit. I also like the posted "startup" time to get to watching a Blu-Ray movie -- 14 seconds. I'm impressed with everything I've read about this unit. Any other members currently own it?
Jaytay,

I will second what others have said here. I purchased a BDP-83SE in December and couldn't be happier. The audio on 2 CH and MCH is incredible, far exceeding my old Denon 3910 universal player. The video on both Std DVD and BluRay is also far superior to the Denon.

One trick I use and suggest on both audio and video is using a product called Millenium Carbon Fiber CD Mat that is available for $119 on the MusicDirect website. This is a disc that sits on top of a CD or DVD during playback and cleans up the background noise of the disc and transport. It makes the DVD Video pop even more and seems to separate instruments and voices on CDs improving the dynamics and clarity of everything on the disc. Highly recommended with the BDP-83SE.

I plan on picking one of these up as soon as the home theater is ready in the basement.

Used, I guess, as they have recently been discontinued.

Interesting, I knew the 80 had been discontinued, but I see that the 83 has been now too.

Re: Oppo Digital BDP-83 Universal Player Review

I just discovered that the BDP-83 allows you to shift subtitles on blurays and that this is one of the only players that have this ability. I never thought much of this but I have been looking at getting a 2.35:1 screen and without this feature it would make watching certain movies just about impossible.
