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.
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?
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.
