Re: Opppo Digital Closing - No more Oppo Players

Very strange that they will still be updating current model firmware, and providing warranty, and out of warranty work per their tech support.

My Home Living room Theater
Samsung 65" FP, Yamaha CX-A5100, (5) JBL 8340As, PS3, XBox One, (1) Asus mini pc, (2) Furman Power Conditioners, Darbee Darcet, Oppo UDP-203, and a Project RPM 1.5 Carbon turntable..

I suspect the "support" is only short term for legal reasons to ensure all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed.

Re: Opppo Digital Closing - No more Oppo Players

Most likely streaming started to cut into their business - and for sure their exorbitant prices didn't help - but it's still sad to see them go. They were widely regarded as the best media players in the industry. I've owned a 103 for about 5 years now, and it has been excellent.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

yeah, they sell excellent products. I have had no issues with my Oppo player. Works like a champ since day one.

Re: Opppo Digital Closing - No more Oppo Players

Hopefully Oppo will keep its word with the warranty/support. Being the fourth largest phone company (Oppo Mobile, sister company, both owned by BKK Electronics) probably just good practice if they want to enter the US market....

Suum cuique Caveat emptor E pluribus unum Veni, vidi, vici....that's what I got out of 4 years of Latin in high school way back when.

Re: Opppo Digital Closing - No more Oppo Players

This thread is exactly why we just purchased the UB900. There is a shootout on YouTube comparing the Panny UB900 to the Oppo 203. Guess who wins?

I can also show you another YouTube were Vincent tells why he uses the Oppo as his player for testing

Yes, I'm sure you can. Just like Oppo is the reference standard for many in the audio industry.

But that does not mitigate the results clearly demonstrated here. And as stated, this is what convinced me to go with the UB900. Price and performance value that can't be beat. The UB900 is now the reference BD player in my system.

Considering that Oppo has bailed on the marketplace, probably for a number of reasons, this makes the decision a no brainer. Of course, I expect the cultists to make arguments on the other side.

In the meantime, I'm just loving my new Panny!

When the UB9000 arrives, I would be very interested in what the reviewers say about it. I don't think it will play SACD's but I hope so.
