We can debate all day about the reasons Oppo is fading away from producing disc players. We can also debate how good their players are compared to others. Why the haters cruise this thread I’ll never understand. If you don’t like Oppo just buy something else because you certainly won’t sway my opinion.
There’s a certain brand of speaker I don’t care for and I have never gone to their thread to try to change peoples opinions. I simply don’t spend my money on that brand. Notice I didn’t even mention the brand name.
Now what we all should be concerned about is how many others will follow Oppo’s lead and bail away from physical media. Until streaming video reaches the level streaming music has (Tidal, Deezer), I will always prefer physical disc.
So my 203 is sitting in the box waiting to be hooked up when I get time. I will initially use it for Blu-ray (no 4k TV yet), SACD’s and DSD.
That’s my $0.02.
Happy viewing and listening everyone.
