WE just had breakfast at CEDIA with the fine folks at Oppo Digital where they unveiled their new BDP-93 Network Streaming Universal Blu-ray Player.
Just when you thought there wasn't a better Universal Blu-ray player on
the market for under $500 than the infamous BDP-83 Universal Blu-ray
Player, Oppo proves you wrong by unveiling a new successor model: the
...BDP-93. Carrying the same retail price ($499), Oppo's BDP-93 has upped
the bar by adding new networking/streaming features, increased
performance and improved build quality. The Oppo BDP-93 will do
virtually everything the BDP-83 BD player did, plus have some major
feature upgrades like Netflix streaming and dual HDMI outputs.
Expected ship date is late November of this year..

Was there any mention of producing a scaled back BPD-90 analogous to the pending BPD-93SE?
Also saw no mention of wi-fi or by wire only?
I saw the LAN port, missed the wireless networking. To bad I just bought a backup player with wireless for the rack. I would have preferred one player.
I'm also wondering if they are going to try a different decoding chip for SACD. They still haven't quite totally resolved SACD playback in the BDP-83.
Thanks gonk, I'm taking that to the bank.
Now, just it just needs the capability to connect a 2TB HD full of movies and I'm really all set.
"The dream never dies, just the dreamer."
I have only had this player since april.
Ahhh, what? I am saying that there are other drives that have been noted to be the 'fastest' to load movies, so most likely Oppo will do there best to insure that the drive will load movies as fast as possible.
My thoughts exactly. It would be great if the 93SE had a digital input or inputs like the CA 840C to further take advantage of the DACs. Either way I'm sure it will be a killer piece.
My SACD collection, watch it grow and my wallet shrink ;-).
Sorry, he had no other info. I did a search and only found this reference.
One could only hope my BDP-83 can be updated after all.
I thought you meant the boot time. The movie loading should be faster.
The picture of the back shows an RS-232 port. Does anyone know if it is included in the base unit or if it is an extra as with the -83?
How much faster would you like it to be. The BDP-83 was plenty fast.
