The OPPO BDP-95 January 2012 Absolute Sound magazine review


The January 2012 Absolute Sound magazine had an excellent review on the OPPO BDP-95. Review is located on pages 32, 34, and 37 of the January 2012 Absolute Sound magazine. The $999 OPPO BDP-95 is a low cost high quality Universal Blu-ray player with analog audio outputs that are almost as good as equipment costing $8,499+. For those that only plan on using HDMI connections than a $499 OPPO BDP-93 or other brand of Blu-ray player with SACD/DVD-Audio capability will sound just as good as the OPPO BDP-95. The OPPO BDP-95 strong points is its high quality analog audio outputs.


The following are select quotes from the January 2012 Absolute Sound magazine


“During my listening tests, for example, I compared the sound of a series of discs being decoded by the digital front end of the excellent Anthem Statement D2v A/V controller ($8499) to the sound of the same discs played through the BDP-95. I also did similar comparisons between the BDP-95 and two comparatively expensive reference players I had on hand a Musical Fidelity kW SACD player and a Rega Isis CD player. The results were eye-opening.”

“While I ultimately preferred my reference players to the Oppo, the Oppo sounded, in a qualitative sense, much more like the premium-priced reference players than unlike them. In short, the Oppo proved to my satisfaction that it could “play with the big boys.” “

“Absolutely nothing I’ve heard at or even vaguely close to the BDP-95’s price can compete with its sound quality.”

“The bottom line is this: The BDP-95 is by far the finest Blu-ray/universal disc player Oppo has yet produced. If you can afford one, then put the Oppo right at the top of your short list. If you can afford something more expensive, strongly consider buying the Oppo anyway. It’s that good.”

For Analog, it's the very Best.
