If you think Sony offers better features then apparently you never used the OPPO properly. Oppo is certainly NOT a "BOUTIQUE" product and never was.
Lighten up, Francis. You're right in that the OPPO is not a "boutique" product. I think of it as more of a "niche" offering. High end, yes, but definitely better quality than a Sony or almost every other player on the market today. How much better? Picture wise? Obviously subjective but those that have used OPPO now and in the past, appreciate the quality of the build, support and features.
I wouldn't be so hard on streaming. Between Netflix, Amazon Prime and the occasional .99 cent special from Google Play Movies - - I find the quality to be very good. And I use the native apps on my Sony 900E as it provides the best picture quality, nonwithstanding the clunky Android system. Who knows, if I had bought a 4K OPPO Player as opposed to the Samsung K8500 Bluray Player, maybe I might have stuck with renting 4K/HDR movies and playing them with the OPPO. I just didn't see the 4K/HDR quality difference with the Sammy player, for a multitude of reasons - - mostly being the proliferation of fake 4K Bluray offerings.
Streaming is here to stay. The OPPO will be missed by a very loyal fan base and a committed company who backed their product with excellent service and support. Life marches on.
