Re: Oppo to build Blu-Ray player
I sent an email to Oppo about this on Feb. 20th and this was their response:
"We have not yet aligned ourselves to the Blu-Ray high definition video format. The primary reason for this is that we feel that the current hardware solutions are not mature enough to be implemented and released by OPPO Digital. Our operational motto is to "make a mature product better". The Blu-Ray specifications are continually in flux, and we can't afford to create a solution which will become obsolete within a year.
We are vigorously investigating all current and future hardware solutions, however we do not know when we will commit to them.
OPPO Digital, Inc."
I'm not confident that it is a good time to buy a Blu-ray player from any manufacturer yet. Unless I'm convinced otherwise in the months to come, I'll be waiting until after Christmas.
