Wtb: Oppo Blu-Ray Player

Recommended Posts

I'm on the hunt for a used Oppo Blu-ray player. I'm willing to consider any of the units (83/93/95/103) but my budget is probably $600 max (in the case of a newer model). I just missed out on the 83 that sold today, but I'm hoping someone will have one lying around that they'd be willing to pass on.

Dude,

Patience is a virtue, OPPO's will be bountiful shortly, your budget range will more than suffice in this time of need. :hmm:

I figured that with the release of the new models there'd be a few people moving on their existing units.

Yeah I saw those. First one is sold, second is not keen on shipping. Thanks for the heads-up though. :)

How important is the analogue stage? If you're just taking the digital signals, I have a BDP-80 which I am about to upgrade to a 103. I was going to just move it to the family room, but it's a bit superfluous.

PM me if it fits the bill.

I'm particularly interested in the analogue decoding, in fact that's the only reason I'm looking at the Oppos. If I had a reciever I'd just grab a $70 name brand player and bitstream over HDMI.

You could try Yamaha BD1010 from Eastwood HIFI for $575

Correct, tho if the OP is only after a cheaper/2nd hand player with analogue outs your pana seems a good fit for him.

Or go for webbsy"s 103 ;newer dacs and a lot more nice features ; 2 generations of them :ike:

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'm currently using a Panasonic BDT-220 with analogue 2.0 out to my stereo integrated amp. I've noticed an improvement by using an external DAC (Audio-gd Ref 5.2) in between; running coax/toslink from the BR player (internal downmixing to 2.0 PCM) to the DAC and analogue from the DAC to the amp.

I'm particularly interested in the Oppo units as I suspect their onboard decoding to stereo analogue will be an improvement over the Pana and hopefully near the quality of the external DAC. Is this an accurate assumption?

The 103 looks the goods, especially with the HDMI input. However I rip my BDs to MKV, and Cinavia might get in the way of that?

The Oppos are definitely top notch. However, remember they have spent their money on analogue decoding all seven channels. The BDP-83 has an excellent 2 channel DAC and OK 7 channel, so you might find this a worthwhile acquisition if you are staying with 2 channel.

Fair enough. For watching Blu-Rays only (no DVDs), would a 93 or 103 have better picture quality than an 83? I assume most people simply use the "source direct" mode for 1080p material, bypassing any video processing?

      Item: A few AV products from Denon, HSU, Yamaha, from Receivers and some small bookshelf rear speakers etc
      Location: PERTH
      Price: As below
      Item Condition: various but mostly good pm for me info
      Reason for selling: Older gear needs a new home , has not been used in years. Some with very little use.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: See Below.
       
      Samsung Blue ray player with remote BDP1400 -$120- now $100
       
      DENON Blueray Disc Transport DVD 2500BT with remote  high end when released needs DAC as HDMI out only. Higher end Blueray transport $400 now $250
       
      Kenwood Audio video stereo receiver KR-v6050.  $100 great entry amp/ receiver for someone.
       
      ------------------------
      Speakers
       
      Axis Ls28 bookshelf speakers black great sound and perfect sonically , scratched boxes. $200 awesome for rears on SS set up.
       
       
      Xavian Bonbonus book shelf speakers in light ash wood great actually very good condition $350 same as above for as rears or smaller 
       
       
      Receiver
       
      Yamaha rxv3800  with remote Receiver 2nd highest in range i think was $4000 or more new. Very nice sound from Yamaha. Winner of top sounding receiver.
       
      Bargain ONLY $500 due to HDMI issues and 3 work at least so who needs more than that otherwise would be listed at $1200 
       
      Hdmi board, 2-3 inputs work , 1-2 don’t for some reason and all other inputs work perfectly goes very well with Denon transport above.
       
      Conclusion
      When dealing with an AVR in this price class, you go in with very high expectations. The Yamaha RX-V3800 has the specs to please most any enthusiast with excellent power, ample HDMI inputs, and internal decoding of the new HD audio codecs. The only personal letdown for me was the AVR's inability to process certain video signals to 1080p; instead it simply passes them through. Even with this shortcoming, this is an excellent product and is worthy of your consideration when looking for an AVR in this price class.
      Highs
      Four HDMI Inputs
      Onboard Decoding of Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, & DTS-HD Master Audio
      Clean and Dynamic sound from all channels
      Lows
      Video section only upconverts analog signals
      YPAO setup set monitor speakers to "Large" when they should be set to "Small"

Attractively presented with restored original artwork, immaculate sound remastered by longtime Who engineer John Astley, and pressed onto virgin heavyweight vinyl The Studio Albums is the ultimate must-have for any fan of one of the most legendary rock 'n' roll bands of all time.

      For this strictly limited edition release, great care has been taken to ensure the product looks as good as it sounds. The box itself is a hard, full-color presentation with matt lamination and spott-gloss varnish, while artwork restorations include the Tommy sleeve with its original 6-panel fold-out and 12-page color booklet, Face Dances with its 24" by 24" poster insert and The Who Sell Out, with the same 20" by 30" poster as on the original 1967 pressings.
