I have to appreciate the advice of anybody that listens to Harry James followed by some classical music.

Question Re: OPPO BDP-83 Bluray player

What is the difference in video and sound quality between the OPPO BDP-80 and the OPPO BDP-83 BLU-RAY players,if any.Any other reasons for the huge price gap between those two.

The price difference isn't huge at $210 but it isn't small either. The primary difference is the better standard DVD upscaling and de-interlacing in the 83 which has the ABT video chip rather than the Mediatek basic upscaling. The difference would probably not be noticeable on a screen below 50".

The 83 also has better analog audio performance with its separate stereo analog out system (the 83SE is better for analog still and not by a little bit). Again if you do not need analog audio (for stereo SACDs and CDs), then this feature is not something you would need. If you are going to send all audio over HDMI, the improved analog audio performance would again be irrelevant.

Finally, with the latest firmware, the 83 can work with a DLNA server to allow streaming media (this is NOT streaming video downloads from Netflix or some other service) which allows you to send video from a media server or your computer through the 83 (taking advantage of its upscaling abilities where appropriate). The 80 so far does not have this last DLNA ability but it may possibly at some time.

The other differences that are in the 83's favor are build quality and extra features ones, such as the aluminum rather than plastic faceplate, heavier chassis, support for IR repeaters and the availability of an option RS-232 input for use with sophisticated control systems.

Question Re: OPPO BDP-83 Bluray player

Thanks for the clear explaination between the OPPO BLU-RAY DVD players JazzGuyy.As far as the OPPO BDP-83 SE Special Edition is concerned,if I understand correctly,it would either be made mostly for regular amps systems, especially made to play music such as the source discs coming from regular CD'S and SACD'S with the best results possible.But does this means that AVR'S are not reommended since they might be limited in quality in their analog audio connections capacities.Either way,since it is officially still a BLU-RAY DVD player,and the fact that the HDMI connection is not recommended,does this mean that if someone wants the best results for movie watching on the SE special edition,that the video connection should be put directly from the 83SE to the TV by either the optical or coaxial connection,while the audio part would be connected directly from the 83SE to the amp system for the best audio sound.

As I said, the 83SE is intended for people with older AVRs or preamp/processors. People with such systems (like me) don't have HDMI inputs on their audio gear to make use of. In such situations you have to connect the HDMI video out from the 83 to your TV's HDMI connections. It is not that the HDMI connection is not recommended. If you have a newer AVR or pre/pro with HDMI inputs, then you would use them and the SE version of the 83 would not make sense for you.

There are older AVRs that have good analog audio though not usually the low end ones. Most more recent AVRs and pre/pros are lacking in analog audio quality because they are really meant to be used pretty much exclusively with HDMI connections.
