“I got the opportunity to buy a used but minty Oppo BDP-83SE for a very good price. The seller was upgrading to a BDP-105 and needed some cash so I jumped on the BDP-83SE.

The upgraded version retailed $400...” --Jon S
“I have owned the UD9004 since May 2010. I was in the market for a reference quality CD player and SACD player. For a Class A player I was looking at Ayre, Luxman, Esoteric, Marantz. I wanted to buy my "last" high end music player. At the same time I had just moved from the PS3 as my Blu Ray player and bought a Panasonic to serve as my DVD/Blu ray player.

One button is to put 24p playback to on or off and the other one is to select the wanted aspect ratio (720p/1080i/1080p, etc...). The rest of the remote buttons are pretty straightforward and quite easy to use. In terms of picture quality and audio...” --Daffietje
“Like a soup-up 500hp BMW on slick vs a Factory Porsche 911, which one will kick ass more? That's my impression of Audiocom Oppo 105 Reference vs some of the mega $ cdp out there! My listening usage is more HT now but I had my days with 2ch, AN CDT2 MKII transport, DAC3.1Sig fitted with Telefunken ECC802s tubes (best 6922 tube period, cost me $300 each) & upgrade BG-n caps, Lamm LL2 tube...” --rob6186

At the time it was quite reasonably priced (and available unlike the Oppo models I was looking at at the time) and plays all the discs I want my disc players to play, and plays them well. I purchased this player when I...” --DrOct
