This has to be a hack of some sort.

Looks like this is true according to a well respected U.K. forum. Closing in the UK but can’t see any mention of the US.
Edit
Just seen that’s its worldwide.

I don't understand how they can maintain support if they aren't selling anything. That's just bleeding money.

Sad news... and I'm sorry to see another great product company disappear. But like other technologies, things change. I suspect even with a huge following from AVS members, the age of streaming media may have impacted them too.

April Fools was yesterday, but unfortunately, this is real news. OPPO will no longer be manufacturing additional hardware, so what they have in stock and what is currently out there in the wild is the last of the OPPO Digital legacy you will see.

I have a 93 that is going strong. I have thought about getting a 203 while I still can, but your point is well made....how long can they continue to provide support without any sales? Judging from the various player threads for all makes, 4K/UHD/DV still seem to be evolving.

How long before they really shut the lights off?

Sony X800, but Sony is a far cry from Oppo in terms of service and support.

Bummer I was contemplating my annual ht purchase a 203 and new speakers. Although the players are solid I fear no more firmware updates.

From their FAQ:

Quote:
Will there still be firmware upgrades for my OPPO products?

Yes, products will continue to receive firmware upgrades from time to time when new features or bug fixes warrant such an upgrade. Newer products such as the UDP-203 and UDP-205 will likely receive more frequent upgrades while mature products such as the BDP-103 and earlier models will only get firmware upgrades if there are critical fixes. If your player is connected to the Internet, you can check for firmware upgrades by going to the Setup Menu / Device Setup / Firmware Upgrade / Via Network. New firmware will also be posted on the support pages of the corresponding products (https://www.oppodigital.com/Support.aspx)

Doesn't make sense that they could not find any buyers. Niche, high end companies do thrive independently, if managed. Something to do with Chinese ownership? I doubt it.

Damn, very sad to see this. I'm glad I got my 203 already. Looks like they will continue to issue firmware updates and offer warranty support.

I just bought a 203 last week and have the same concern. On the other hand is it now going to become a desirable collectors item?

Had I known last week that they were shutting their doors I would not have bothered due to the uncertainty regarding future support, no matter what they say.

The decision was made in China last year. But folks in the know had to keep mum... if you noticed, they were pretty quiet at CES and had little new info or products since last year. They were also dealing with quite a few returns on their 4k players, but the main thing is that phones cost less to make, and have a larger profit margin than 4k players.

Grab one while you can?

A real pity since I had every single BR player they ever made, even the Japanese Limited Edition..
