Seems pricey but the features looks like this player delivers. A buddy of mine just got the sony BDP-S550 and it has about the same features as this one but he got his for almost $200 less than this player. Just wonder with the price difference will the player have that much additional quality to sound and/or picture.

I think the big thing with these will be the upconversion of SD-DVD, which oppo is so well known for.

Any word on a release date for these yet? I've been looking for an all in one solution. I'm currently using a PS3 for Blu-ray and SACD (I hate SACD over HDMI on the PS3) and my trusty Toshiba SD-9200 for Redbook and DVD-A.

I know the 9200 is a few years old but it has a great reputation for its sound quality. How do you think the BDP-83 will compare?

The Oppo BD-83 can play SACD and DVD-A formats as well as any SD DVD material and Blu-Ray. There aren't many that can do all of those formats. and the one i do know that does is about 3-4x more.

I got a E-mail from Oppo asking if I wanted to be one of the early adopters. I said YES. but alas :sob:there were only 50 and I did not get choosen. March does look like the realese date though.

Also it would appear the final price should be 499.00 to 599.00 as the EAP program price was 499.00 if you were picked.

I didn't get picked either, but I say bravo to Oppo for their EAP. Many Blu-ray manufacturers have been doing this for a while. They just forget to tell the consumer that it is an EAP. :unbelievable:

The reviews I have seen have been very positive and it appears that the "Fortunate Fifty" are finding problems in areas I would never use. I expect that when this unit is released, the bugs will be few and only in areas where few tread.
