Very nice OPPO.

I love to see how things keep "movin on up" like the Jeffersons.
Now OPPO is dipping into the high end market with this SE model.
Where at one time they were know for "waiting till technology is mature", with this new SE model, they are now more on the cutting edge.
Reputation is maturing, website is maturing, build quality is better, and performance is at an all time high... all the while still providing the best bang for you buck in many different categories.

Yep, but your a few posts late.

Looks like NuForce got a spankin' by Oppo. Discounts on the SE no longer are available...only on the NuForce version.

Wow! I guess a few people got really lucky.
Not only that, but it looks like NuForce is not even selling the SE model as a stand alone unit at all.
They have info for the upgrade prices on the SE and NFE models, and they have the price on the stnad alone NFE model, but no stand alone price on the SE model.
On the same plane, their upgrade price for the SE verion is $100 more than OPPO's price.

Now will Analog SE audio sound better than digital Bitstreaming?

Most likely the same FW will have updates for both units, then the player will pick and choose which portions of the update it applies.

So yes 1 download, but different updates could be taking place.

The point of it all was, I don't think that OPPO is going to implement special features (like "bass management") into the SE model, away from the standard BDP-83 unit.

It's going to be pretty hard to find DAC of this quality in an AVR. But that doesn't mean that it will sound better on YOUR system. The stereo output specs are impressive to say the least. For 2-ch listening I'd expect this to sound better on a wide range of systems. But for m-ch systems and listening all bets are off since most AVRs do not offer DSP on m-ch inputs. Absence of DSP and all it includes, like bass management and EQ, will be a significant loss for most systems.

Bottom line: this is a giant killer for 2-ch listening, and will equal or best players costing many times more. For m-ch, YMMV.

$299 to upgrade 2- and multi-channel audio? And I don't have an HDMI-capable receiver? Hell yes!

Don't forget, for that price you ALSO get RS-232 added AND the SE souvenir decal!

AHH, so it is a half-step below...well, maybe a quarter. Though that seems in-line with most oem customized solutions. Will there be a noticeable difference...dunno.

For laughs and a frame of reference: What AVRs have these ESS DACs or comparable on them and what kind of costs more or less?

So far it appears that only one McIntosh SACD player has used DAC from the same line:

Quote:


The MCD 500 SACD player bears special mention, since it is a product that has McIntosh insiders salivating in a big way—and for good reason. The MCD 500 SACD player features both fixed- and variable-level balanced outputs and uses “four 24-bit/192kHz PCM/DSD digital to analog converters per channel arranged in a differential balanced configuration.

Looks like even though OPPO states that the customer is responsible for sending in their player when upgrading their -83 to an -83SE, they actually are giving you a credit of $18 to cover shipping costs when you order the upgrade.

You have to wonder how the BDP-83 SE is going to effect the whole third party mod market against the BDP-83, now that the BDP-83 SE is available at a "reasonable price".

Most likely not... and with the "upgrade" option you don't get the SE decal either. The front of the player will be unchanged.
To get front changed, you'll have to buy a whole new SE unit, then keep or sell your old BDP-83 on your own.
