Not in the current thread, it's not. Where did you see this post?

Yes (the Oppo plays local-region DVDs) and no (it is NOT a region-free Blu-Ray player, due to complexities in the Blu-Ray spec).

There are mods (approx. $100) around that will make it region free. They do void the warranty though. It will play Region 0 PAL DVDs though.

The current edition of The Absolute Sound contains an interesting advertisement by Oppo Digital announcing The Special Edition BDP-83 with all new DAC's by ESS Technologies. I've emailed Oppo in an attempt to get more info but as of yet I have not received a reply. This is the press release from ESS Technologies http://esstech.com/PR_2009/Oppo_ESS_9016_PR.pdf

I visited Oppo's web site and could find nothing relating to a 'Special Edition'. Has anyone else seen or heard when these will be available for purchase?

I'm hoping that they will provide a chance for those of us who purchased the original BDP-83 to upgrade. I'm not all that impressed with the sound of the analog output in comparison with that of the Marantz DV9600. If these new DAC's can improve the CD playback then it will be the universal player that pushes the Marantz out of the home theater and into the bedroom!

Well, how do you like that? I post this and go to the Oppo web site and find the BDP-83SE! I'm a little miffed that this thing seems to have come in under everyone's radar. Had I been aware that Oppo was planning an improved BDP-83 I would have waited for it. I've only had mine for 60 days or so.

Everything was officially announced yesterday (11/9) and is now posted on Oppo's website. The price is $899 for a new unit. There is an upgrade available for $299. There is an even more heavily modded version of the SE available from NuForce. That one goes for around $1200, IIRC. Your old unit can be modded by NuForce to that version as well.
