OK, I was going to buy a 203 in the next few weeks.

So, what’s the next best UHD player out there, or expected near-term?

Sad, but it goes to show that the American public just wants cheap throwaway crap versus quality built products. I feel for the people I've dealt with at Oppo because they have always been awesome to do business with. They will be missed.

Reminds me of when Tag McLaren got out of the business.
Of course support won't last for the LIFE of the player...
Oppo players are built to last, and they do for many many years. Others boast about still using Oppo's first Blu-ray players,
and some people still use their older dvd players for different things.

It's hard to say just how long support for the current 20X players will last. Only Oppo can answer that, but as far as the longevity of the players,
they have a long history of literally being a life-long player. Of course technology seems to make older models obsolete before they actually break.
You can't play BDs on a DVD player, and you can't play 4K discs on 2K player.

I think anyone who sends their player back for a refund or sells it off in a panic will likely regret it later on.
Oppo players also have a history of holding their value, and at times demand has even garnered sale prices that reach higher than the msrp.
Notice how all the posts in this thread that speak negatively toward Oppo players are from users who have never owned one of their players.
One thing I have always put a lot of stock in, are reviews and recommendations of products from people who own them.
Just about all professional reviewers who use optical disc players actually own Oppo players. There's a clear and logical reason for that.

Unfortunately this is not a new development. And not limited to Americans. When one is comparing a cheap product to a quality but more expensive product - the quicker-failing cheapo product will almost always prevail. Doesn't matter whether it's a blu-ray player, or a turntable, or a wristwatch... or shoes.

It's not ez to sell a $550 player w/ the new Xbox's including a 4K drive it and the other manufacturer's cheaper prices. Damned shame, but I don't regret my purchase one bit. I'll use to for years to come.

Damn. First my local hi-fi shop goes under, closing doors this week. Now this. Well, c'est la vie.

Still, I'm just gonna enjoy the heck outta my player until it dies, which it may never. Not even worried about firmware updates, I know some are, and the player is not perfect, but in my simply arrangement, it is great.

I do find the arguments about streaming capabilities as a strike against the Oppo UHD players to be just plain silly. Yeah, mighta turned off some potential buyers, maybe a lot of them. But that is not what made or broke Oppo Digital.

But I'm gonna guess this will not be the last of them......

Makes ya want to give your Oppo a big hug and tell her how much she means to you. I think I'll even sing my 203 a little song. Who knows, after a few rum and Cokes I may even work in a dance. But seriously, this is saddens me.

Samsung/Sony/LG players don’t cost what the Oppo does. It seems risky potentially getting stuck with a $560 piece of electronics which could very well have an issue with an upcoming disc. And while Oppo did say firmware updates will continue, they made no mention of timeliness. For all we know it could be one or two per year not the regular updates they have been doing. In fact, their release said ‘from time to time’. Not very reassuring

YMMV on this, but I can point to Prada shoes and Baume et Mercier watches as examples of products that are about buying relative luxury, but have the same degree of basic functionality as cheaper ones. Or a Lexus vs. Toyota for that matter. It's all about finding a market that seeks luxury or at least wants to think they're buying a piece of it for the price.

Oppo might have done better not giving away their core equity - their world-class product support and frequent firmware updates - and offered a subscription model or at least tiers of support with different price levels. Even $150 or $200/year more per year, and maybe staying focused on direct to consumer and staying away from the likes of Magnolia/Best Buy might have keep their need to sell more units down and stayed more profitable on the players.

Yes, every single statement in that quote is indeed BS.

Or would you perhaps have data to support these two gems?

I don't want to start an Oppo vs. media player war, but I have to admit that this eGreat A11 review by Sledgehamma really opened my eyes as to PQ on a "Holy Grail" Oppo vs. a high-end media player. The A11 seems to be the equal (if not outright better) of the Oppo in that dept.

They were only ever carried at the locations with Design Centers, of which there are fewer than 100. I doubt being carried by a small amount of specialty retailers really hurt them. Sounds like this has been in the cards for a while and has been kept relatively silent.

pioneer av business was bought by onkyo, didnt you read of the merger with onkyo?

for oppo, i havent owned their BD players but for a 4k player with dv, it was the reference standard these past couple of years. looks like the panasonic ubp-820 will be that reference standard substitute from here on.

will oppo be still making phones? oppo was never famous in asian countries for their blu ray players though they are available, but their phones sell dime a dozen to the average joe crowd, i can spot many oppo phones billboards here, i think they will continue with phones and that is the business that is really worth it when it comes to raking profits. there is not as much money to be made selling premium blu ray players to a relatively niche market.

Wasn't oppo manufacturing blu ray players in PRC? i wonder if the recent counter tariffs PRC imposed on american companies made their manufacturing costs higher and this also played some role in their decision to cease production?

Watched a lot of good blu-rays and 4Kblu-rays at my house with friends over the weekend! Many commented how much better sound & picture was over streaming ! But convenient process of streaming is winning out ! That hurts more than anything else I think ! Playing discs for the public is a very niche thing ! Most stream now ! I love lossless sound and PQ of a physical disc !

It was the features they offered that most did not, like their 9 levels of zooming and aspect ratio control, that attracted me to their product......... so many customization levels to choose from. I will miss their physical media players

It is not true that that PQ with high end 4k blu ray player vs a budget player would be the same when playing a 4k blu ray disc. stack up an oppo 203 or panasonic ubp 900 next to a sony x700 player and you'll see those players put out a higher quality picture than the sony x700. when you pay for a premium blu ray player, you are paying for superior video processing and picture enhancement technologies that make the 4k blu ray disc look even better.

this below post is not true. Looks like this gentleman has never put his budget samsung 8500 player next to the mentioned oppo or panasonic players and checked out the video quality playing the same 4k blu ray movie.

So again - if the PQ is identical and the audio quality is too.... what am I "getting" for $400+ more bucks? 10lbs of chassis material? Ehhhh. OK. Great.

I have a "cheapo" Sammmy 8500 player and it plays every disc I throw at it and still gets firmware updates. It just works. If some elves swapped my player out with an Oppo overnight Im sure Id never be able to tell the next time I watched a UHD disc.

This. I don't get why everything needs to stream. If you have a 4K TV, then you already have a 4K streaming device. I guess if you have a projector then I could maybe see it. Not to mention a $50 Roku or $180 Apple TV will be far better streamers than a disc player. I never used the apps on my 103D, and my Panasonic UB900 "streams" but the layout and selection is laughable. The Vieracast interface was immediately recognizable to me, because my 2010 plasma had the same exact one. Rather leave these sorts of things to actual software companies. I find the lack of streaming crap refreshing, which was one thing I liked about my AVR - no streaming crap to break or look horribly outdated in ~5 years.

I didnt care about apps, i have a shield on every tv in the house. I bought it for 4k disks, thats it. With the new beta firmware and the ability to tone map, it has made my projector never looks better with hdr.
Ditto, never lost more than $100 tops on my 83,93, and 103 that I sold almost two weeks ago. Been loving my 203 since last Thursday. Once you own a Oppo it’s real hard to change to anything else. It’s like having a Lexus LFA and then trading it in for a Toyota 😕

Many of us were mystified at how Sony could hype Dolby Vision without ensuring that it would work through HDMI and not just streaming. It appears that nobody is interested in making Dolby Vision work from a disk source. Well, now I understand. They just don’t give a damn, because mass consumers prefer degraded strearming video for the convenience. Which means there’s no future for disks, and OPPO knows it.
