Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Review
Reputation often precedes any compliments that can be dished about OPPO as a company, largely in the realm of world cinema.  Their 970 and 980 lines of DVD players handle just about anything thrown at them, all while upscaling standard-definition discs to impeccable quality.  When word inked into the picture that OPPO would be releasing a “Universal” Blu-ray player, their BDP-83, many a mouth salivated.   However, a few breaks have to be slammed on this parade: region coding issues have locked its Blu-ray capacity to Region A, and its standard-definition player capacity has been relegated to Region 1/0 discs.  OPPO’s BDP-83 has taken strong strides in surmounting these obstacles, decisions mostly dictated by restrictions out of their control.  Instead of trying to finagle malleable technology into their player like the Momitsu multi-region player on the market now, they seeped directly ...

Onkyo TX-SR706 AV Receiver
The BasicsThe Onkyo TX-SR706 THX Certified Seven Channel AV Receiver is a 7.1 channel AV receiver that builds on what was best about the previous TX-SR606 model. The TX-SR706 strengthens its value with vast improvements in video upscaling of up to 1080p, breathing new life into just about any DVD collection. It also has an Audyssey automatic speaker setup and room-equalization program that delivers more accurate sound.However, its top selling point (as detailed in its product name) is that the Onkyo TX-SR706 is THX Select2 Plus certified. To many home theater enthusiasts, this is a deal maker. This model was evaluated by THX (of George Lucas/Star Wars fame) against some very strict benchmarks. THX has indeed found the 100-watt-per-channel receiver more than capable of delivering accurate as recorded sound at volume levels typical of most home theaters. All in all, ...

Introduction Founded in 1946, Onkyo has produced many memorable AV components over the last half-century, including several behemoth receivers from the 1970s which are still sought out by vintage equipment collectors.  Their reputation for building robust, feature-laden components has been instrumental in creating universal brand recognition and a loyal following.  Aggressively incorporating the most recent technological advances in audio and video processing, they continue to develop new components, which offer sophisticated features and functions often found exclusively in higher-priced, high-end equipment.
