Of course it is "experimental" & "non-supported".
That was the extent of the reply, so I believe that we will not see any new features nor any of the experimental features made supported. Nor do I believe we will see any move by Oppo to offer the orphaned -80 owners any upgrade path etc. Thanks for your $$$ and good luck.
Seems quite a different Oppo these days.
Orphaned? Not sure what that means. You did purchase the player, and it functions as it should with minimal compromise.
Now the player is no longer being sold, but this has no impact on the performance of your own personal player.
Not sure how you think OPPO has changed.
If anything, they have gotten better at what they do.
What they have never offered, it to lie you down in a crib full of fluffy white bedding, and feed you warm bottles of milk until you may be ready for potty training or solid foods.
The attentive customer support only goes so far.
Be happy that you have a great player to use.
The same player that was great before AND after production.
Mine is still in my family room used several times a week, and I don't have any plans on replacing it anytime soon.
