New Oppo BDP93 Blu-ray Player  

post #1 of 1323
Thread Starter 
[mod edit: Here's a link to the BDP-93 thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...php?t=1288889]



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..

Marvell chip, interesting. If this supports Vudu, I may have to bite.

Interesting. I probably won't bite, given I just bought a Panasonic BDP-85 with netflix streaming via wi-fi. So for now the panny and my Oppo-BDP83 serve my needs.

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?

Excellent! I've been waiting for this.

Glangford - He mentions "Wireless-N networking" in the article and on the rear photo you can see a LAN port.

Thanks,

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.

I'd like to see them also work more with DLNA, which so far in the other players is still in a beta stage. Supporting more file formats would be great. If they get all of this working, then they'd be right back on top with a true universal player.

I can only dream of this thing supporting iso dvd files and iso bluray's....right?

Are the load times faster than the 83?

Who knows? I'd doubt they'd be longer.
post #11 of 1323
I know I'm an odd bird, but I need it to output HDMI and composite at the same time. Here's hoping.

The BDP-83 and BDP-80 both did that. I would sort of expect the BDP-93 to do the same.

Great news!!! Thank you Denon for delaying your players and missing your ship date or I might have one of those and missed this. I can't wait to kick my LG 390 down to the curb and the trash.

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.

So any speculation on whether the streaming features will be added to the 83?
I'd sure perfer to stream through the oppo, I just can't seem to get rid of the judder on my HTPC.

Most likely, since there are players that seem to load faster than the 83 in some cases.

Wonder what the 93"se" will bring?

Don't expect a fully loaded truck faster than an empty truck.
post #20 of 1323
a least now when people want netflix and the oppo. they can get both together. I am very happy with my current 83 player. glad to know that they are doing a new player.
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.

Just got off the phone with NetFlix. When I asked about compatible devices, he mentioned Oppo. I said "no way". Of course he says "way". So I thought I had a scoop. Evidently I only have a half a scoop. He said they are supporting the Oppo 93 and 95!
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.
post #24 of 1323
Not interested in streaming, but the 93 will be my next BD player....very happy w/my recently-discontinued BDP80, but will appreciate the full-zooming capabilities and significantly better upscaling of the 93 Btw, I'm probably the only one, but I prefer the classic, upscale vibe of the 83's faceplate over the new 'streamlined' look of the 93...but, it may grow on me...

I thought you meant the boot time. The movie loading should be faster.
post #26 of 1323
Any word if the Blu-ray 3d support includes the checkerboard format like the Panasonic players?
post #27 of 1323
My prayers have been answered, time to retire the PS3 to the den.
post #28 of 1323
How many days till November? lol
post #29 of 1323
I like that that it is the same size as the 83. That will hopefully allow me to re-use my MA faceplate.

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?

iove,

How much faster would you like it to be. The BDP-83 was plenty fast.
