Don't know if we can fully talk about the internals, but what the hell: Cirrus Logic CS4382 (same as the BDP-83).

The inclusion of FLAC and WAV should shut some of you people up. I remember this being requested endlessly during the BDP-83's reign.

Not dead, but probably: not born yet

The only thing missing that I can see is support for .iso files and I think that shouldn't surprise anyone. Just about everything else on the 83 wish list is there except the high-end audio which will be on the 95.

Does this include support for HD res material ?

Woohoo. Can't wait

eSATA Port - The BDP-93 features an eSATA port on its back panel. Consumers can take advantage of this fast eSATA connection to play contents from their hard disks full of audio, video and photo files. Most commercially available hard disks pre-formatted with NTFS, FAT32 and FAT file systems are supported, and file sizes larger than 4GB can be played back.

Dual USB Ports - Two USB 2.0 high speed ports are provided, one on the front panel and one on the back. Users can enjoy high definition video, high resolution photos and music directly from their USB drives.


So, will this be able to replace the WDTV that I'm currently using to play archived videos? Will it work with a USB hub? I currently have three 1TV drives connected to my WDTV.

I've tested 24-bit/192KHz FLAC and WAV files on the player with success. Multi-Channel FLAC as well.

WDTV may still support some codecs or features that the BDP-93 won't, but this player is much more robust in terms of what it can and can't play compared to the BDP-83 which had very minimal user created media support.

This works with thumbdrives, but have not tried this with externals as I only have one massive 2TB external.

That'll work.

Neither does it support .tar, .rar, or .zip files. It is extremely easy using existing free software (such as 7-zip) to extract an .iso file into a separate folder on your USB key or hard drive.

for DVD, the up-converted picture quality bridges the visual gap from your current DVD library to Blu-ray discs; for network streaming and user-encoded content at a variety of formats and quality, the BDP-93 offers enhancement options including video noise reduction, compression artifact reduction, intelligent color, contrast, detail and edge enhancements.

So network streamed video won't be up-converted by the Marvell video processor? The specs only mention DVD Up-conversion.

As long as you are using HDMI 1 (the output the Marvell is connected to) and are using a resolution other than SOURCE DIRECT, then the Marvell chipset will always be doing some kind of processing to the signal, which include scaling.

So say you have the player set to 1080p then Netflix will be 1080p out, despite the input being 480p to 720p.

You can also apply image enhancers such as Noise Reduction for all sources, including streaming services.

No one ever asked for the .tar, .rar, etc capabilities. The ability to directly play video or audio on an .iso file was requested quite a few times. That's why I mentioned it.

And was denied every single time due to issues related to "piracy". MTK does not want to support it, and OPPO really can't force them.

Does anyone have any links to reviews of this player, if there are any?
Thanks!

Yes, I understand that, I'm simply mentioning it because many people don't seem to understand that .iso is very much like .zip in that it simply stores multipe files/folders into a single file, and can easily be un-packed.

Great, thanks. I will definitely be purchasing one now.
