BDP-83 launched , bringing high-end features at a mid-level price. It was an impressive player then, and while it's still impressive now, it lacks some of the capabilities of newer players. The BDP-93 is Oppo's answer to that criticism.
The BDP-93 does just about everything the 83 did, plus a whole lot more. It can handle 3D Blu-rays and features a pair of HDMI outputs for those looking to power two displays or simply separate the audio and the video.
It also boasts built-in wireless N capabilities that allow it to stream movies from Netflix, CinemaNow and a few more partners that are as of yet unannounced. It's also got a new Marvell KYOTO G2 chipset and Qdeo video processing.
When the BDP-93 is made available, it will cost $499, just like the BDP-83 before it. In an interview with Audioholics, the folks from Oppo also mentioned a higher end version of the BD-93, akin to the BDP-83SE.
