    Default OPPO BDP-83 Blu-Ray Disc Player

    This is a thread rebooting the now defunct conversation in the original thread. I don't have a lot to say at this point other than lets keep it clean and and on topic, we're talking about the Oppo BDP-83 player. All comments are welcome about this player Party on wayne!

    I picked mine up in their office earlier this week. I am quite impressed with it so far. A few quirks as with the previous players I've owned from them, but so far it has handled everything I've thrown at it.

    If someone has the oppo-rtunity could they please see if this player offers a source direct where you can output 480P for standard content and 1080P for blu ray without having to manually change the resolution??? I would appreciate it.

    That would be a useful feature for those customers who prefer the sharpness offered by Reon over the more soft picture offered by anchor bay.

    The manual is online and available to all now on their site. So you're looking for 480i raw over HDMI like the 980 does or 480p? I don't recall seeing anything that would allow different settings for BD vs SD DVD in terms of resolution, but I didn't specifically look for it either.

    source direct wouldn't be different setting for bluray/dvd... it would be the player outputting the native resolution of the encoded video via HDMI. Blurays would typically be 1080P (with few exceptions) DVDs would be 480i

    That's right, source direct would output SD DVD's at 480i... damn! I guess, the only way to utilize the deinterlacing of the ABT 2010 and still use my Reon is manually change the resolution to 480P when watching SD content.

    Well that's good, I am sure I can plug the command into my Harmony One pretty easily.

    Man, I don't think I've seen a post from you were you don't talk about your beloved Reon. I need to find a 1500 somewhere to see what all the fuss is about.

    Anyway, would love to get one of these players, but the only place I can buy it now has it for pre-order at $638!

    http://www.onlybestrated.com/oppo-bd...yer-p-227.html

    So, to anyone out there who has tried one, is it worth it? I have a PS3 and BH200 for my Blu-ray playing duties. I don't have a big library of DVDs and I don't have any SACD discs or DVD Audio discs. The MKV support sounds cool, but I wonder if it's as good as my Popcorn Hour NMT. Has anyone tried out the MKV side of things?

    well I just got my player and could not resist unboxing it and setting it up in my office (I have a 42" pioneer plasma in my office that I connected it to) Luckily I also picked up V for vendetta at lunch today so I had something to watch

    First off the packaging on this thing is really, really nice. It reminds me of how apple packs their stuff. great attention to detail!

    very good looking player, I really like the brushed anodized finish. boot up time is very fast.
    I really did not do much other than skip around on the disk some (which is very fast and smooth compared to my bd35)

    I am getting ready to go home in a few minutes and set up the player and run through the included spears and munsil disk and will report back after that

    $638 is what the thing will cost in Canada because of the 20 percent exchange rate.

    I do like reon, as far as the debate between anchor bay and Relta I can't really comment other than I know there are people who very strongly prefer Relta over Anchor bay, and vice versa of course. For those customers that want a player with all the capabilities of this Oppo but don't want to use the upscaling, that would have been a good feature. But it's not supported so oh well... Anyway I honestly can't imagine why you would buy this player and not take advantage of the upscaling, Oppo has an excellent reputation in the field... If I had the disposable income and didn't already have a 2500 I think this Oppo would be at the top of my list.


    And then you'd have me posting in every forum about how awesome the anchorbay upscaling is

    Yeah, the price is reasonable considering the $500 MSRP in the US.

    I'm interested in hearing people's thoughts on whether it's worth it or not for someone like me (not many DVDs, no SACDs, etc.).
