Oppo BDP-83 Early Adoption Program details
 
From Oppo Digital:

We would like to thank you for the tremendous feedback that we have received from the community in response to our first BDP-83 Blu-ray player notification update. There were many great comments, suggestions and concerns which we will try to address in the release of the BDP-83. In particular, we would like to address the Early Adoption Program.

We have decided to take a democratic, by-the-people approach to the implementation of the Early Adoption Program. For the initial batch we will randomly choose 50 customers to participate in the Early Adoption Program. These 50 customers will have the opportunity to purchase the BDP-83 for $499 before the official release. After using the player for about a week, they will be required to vote on whether the program should be expanded or suspended based on end-user experiences. If a supermajority (at least 70%) votes in favor of expanding the program, we will expand the Early Adoption Program by another 100 randomly chosen customers. The player will be shipped with a pre-production firmware version. Firmware updates will be available from time to time.

The initial 50 Early Adoption Customers will be chosen no later than February 25th using the random number generator at random.org. After being contacted by us, the customer must place the order no later than 3pm February 27th Pacific Time; otherwise the opportunity to participate will be passed on to another customer. A simple "Yes" or "No" vote on whether to expand the program needs to be cast no later than March 15th.

Terms and conditions for the Early Adoption Program, as well as the current program status, can be found at our web site:
http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-83/EAP.aspx

We would also like to take this time to update you on the status of BDP-83 developments. The last two months have been very fruitful, as the player now supports BD-Live (Profile 2.0) and can internally decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats. DVD-Audio has yet to be implemented through firmware, but we are working diligently on this feature. A preliminary features and specifications list will be available on our web site on Tuesday March 3rd.

So, Oppo isn't even sure it will be marketable?? That is pretty scarey that they are using consumers to decide if the player is viable!!!

I'd rather think that they simply want our opinion on this Blu Ray player performance in order to serve us better.Could be because they value their customers opinion very much.Guilty of aiming to please perhaps.

The question is whether to expand or suspend the early adoption program. I see no indication they are considering suspending the product. They just want to be sure it is completely ready for market before it is released.

YES: I am one of the first 50 EAP Program testers and the unit is fantastic !!!!!! It is great in AUDIO and VIDEO as in BITSTREAM with HDMI to Processor.It is also very good using the OPPO as a Processor.The up conversion of DVD is fantastic as it was in their last DVD PLAYER.The 2 ch STERO in the unit is also great.We have had very few problems with the players as most reporting NO PROBLEMS.The DVD AUDIO will be upgraded before it is released to everyone as it is just a fimware upgrade as all the hardware is set. They are releasing 100 more players on MONDAY to be tested with the EAP PROGRAM and then i would think if every thing goes well to rest of the public.This is a fantastic player for the money and would beat ALL PLAYERS in its price range and UPPER range.OPPO has a great name for backing their products and they sure are proving it with their CUSTOMER SERVICE with this unit!!!!!!!!
