OPPO GONE!!!
« on: April 03, 2018, 05:14:16 AM »
No April fools folks, OPPO is winding down operations and no new products will be developed.
And so it goes, change is inevitable and not necessarily for the better.
See link to OPPO statement. https://www.oppodigital.com/farewell.aspx

2018: Streaming video

Playstation or XBox for spinning video disks. Or grab a used universal player on CL.

Yamaha. But then again I've always used Yamaha. I always thought the OPPOs while very good, couldn't match the sonics of my BDA1000. Video is good enough for me, YMMV of course.
Plus they've been around for 130 years, make real musical instruments, etc.
They should be around next year.

cheers,
