Default Re: OPPO BDP-83 Bluray player update

Got this update from Oppo:

We appreciate your interest, and would like to update you on the current development status of this exciting new product. One of the major design goals for the BDP-83 is to deliver first-class video quality for both Blu-ray and DVD. We based and expanded upon our top-of-the-line DV-983H up-converting DVD player and fully utilize the unparalleled performance of the VRS by Anchor Bay video processing solution. You can expect all the high-end video features including Source Direct for DVD and Blu-ray, high definition HDMI scaling, Edge and Detail Enhancement options, and 1080p24Hz output for both Blu-ray and DVD.

We did not stop at just video performance. We further refined the audio stage, including the addition of discrete stereo outputs and increasing the power and efficiency of the power supply. For SACD playback, the BDP-83 supports direct DSD over HDMI and DSD-to-analog without any PCM conversion, a very unique feature.

With the BDP-83, we intend to release a full-featured universal Blu-ray Disc player that supports BD Profile 2.0 (BD-Live), DVD, SACD, DVD-Audio, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio. As of this writing, the BDP-83 supports BD Profile 1.1 (BONUSVIEW), DVD-Video, SACD, and bitstreaming of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Progress is being made on a daily basis as our engineers work diligently around the clock to further enable DVD-Audio, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio onboard decoding, and BD Profile 2.0.

The BDP-83 is currently undergoing an extensive and thorough Beta Test Program. We greatly appreciate all the feedback from our beta testers, as without their hard work and extraordinary attention to detail, the BDP-83 would not be the high quality product that our customers have come to expect from us.

As many of our customers eagerly anticipate the release of the BDP83, we are contemplating a "BDP-83 Early Adoption Program" in late December or early January. This program will make available a limited number of units so you can purchase and experience the current implementation of the BDP-83's feature set, with the ability to download firmware as new features become available. The estimated price for the BDP-83 is around $499 to $599.

OPPO Digital is a consumer-oriented company that listens carefully to customer opinions and values their feedback. If it were not for our customers' feedback and support, OPPO would not be where we are today. At OPPO we strive to provide our customers with quality products reinforced by exceptional customer service.

Please email to BDP-83@oppodigital.com if you have any questions and comments, or simply reply to this email.

Best Regards,

Customer Service

Default Re: OPPO BDP-83 Bluray player

Does anyone know if the BDP-83 is being tested to work with a Yamaha RX-Z11? I own a Z11 and have tried several different Oppo DV-983Hs with it without any success. I was told by both Oppo and Yamaha that neither had the necessary equipment to conduct any testing (i.e., Oppo didn't have a Z11 and Yamaha didn't have a 983H). I would really like to get a BDP-83 when it is available, but not working with my Z11 is a show stopper for me.

For those interested in what didn't work, I couldn't get any of the higher definition video to work (720p up) over HDMI, nor could I get high resolution audio (SACD or DVD-A) to work over HDMI (probably related to the video problem). Note that both Oppo and Yamaha were notified of this problem, but I don't know if anything was ever done to fix it.

I plan to ask Oppo prior to buying one. Just thought I might get lucky and someone here would know what testing Oppo was planing/doing.

I really like my Z11. I've owned at least one of each of Yamaha flagship receivers/amps since the days of the DSP-A3090. The Z11 has a few things I would like to change, but overall I am enjoying it (the 11.2 channels are awesome). I really don't use the power amps in the receiver (well, I am using four of them for the four presence channels) as I have an Outlaw Audio 7900 7-channel amp for most of the channels.
