I know eveyrone is eager to see how it performs both on both blu-ray and dvd, however I am more interested in hearing about the audio section, paticularly decoding the lossless formats and last but not least the discrete stereo analogs. I hope some of the lucky few do focus on this as well.

Neuromancer,


You were quick in getting this new thread up. Nothing surprising in that.


For those that did not make the "Nifty Fifty", (hey, March Madness is almost here, I have no need for a new BD player for a time. The 983/PS3 combo will suffice ), some chosen will decide to forgo the invitation.


If the late, great Tim Russert were around with the whiteboard he would help in calculating the chances now remaining for the uninvited.


Look forward to the evaluation here.


Joe

GOOD GRIEF!!!

I picked the wrong two days not to check my emails as I had to sift through HUNDREDS of posts in the other OPPO thread
.


Congratulations to any and all EAP participants! You are going to LOVE this player. It is underpriced IMO.

That's my primary reason for purchasing this player. I don't believe that I'll be able to discern any differences in BR playback from any of the other 3 players I have. But I'll be comparing this player to my Pioneer 59avi in CD and SACD playback over analog. It should be fun.

So the NDA is over and all questions can be asked/answered correct?

The NDA is not lifted for current beta testers, but as I understand it, members of the EAP program will not be restricted to an NDA.

A Mysterious Voice told me:

As soon as the players get shipped out to EAP customers, beta users can

talk about their experience.

...really? How much did you pay for yours?


Congrats to one and all - Neuro, Smarty, et. al., as above, when are we getting the FAQ for the player updated, regarding SACD performance, specific disc compatibility issues, dualdisc compatibility (!!!), etc.

Congrats to those that got in, wish I was one of you
. Well at least we now know that the official player won't be out till after the 15th of March. I guess I can spend a little on something else I was holding off on just in case the oppo would ship next week

Gee Thanks, kinda thought that might be your take.


I had a thought today. Consider the guy, waiting months for the notice to come. He's off on a trip, business or pleasure, does not check personal email.


Comes home and has not responded within the 48 hour window.


Another one on the list to be updated in two days or so.



OK, I'll stop.


Let this new thread start with interesting thoughts.


Joe

Well markrubin told me in the early afternoon that I should create a new thread. So I had a new thread created and waited until after 6:00 (enough time for people to stop posting their random posts on the other thread) to list it.


OPPO was also kind enough to send over their product specifications before the site went live, so I was able to get some more information wrote up early.

If there is not a majority for increasing the Early Adoption Program, the program is suspended until another vote has a 70% or higher acceptance rate.

What votes, percentages or criteria will determine when the 83 is available for the general population to buy?

OPPO has said nothing about the official release. All information released so far has only pertained to the Early Adoption Program.


I would peg the release of the player to the general public when DVD-Audio is introduced to the player, and at least 90% vote "Yes" to an expansion of the program.

I know one of the testers already has a mini-FAQ ready to hit the interwebs.


In terms of full specifications, probably not until the player is completely released. I will be updating the front page periodically to add new information, but I have not really decided on how I will go about picking and choosing which information will be "First Post" worthy.

Under-priced by about $200 IMHO. Under-priced by about $3700 according to Denon.

So, the early adopters could decide to just keep voting no, so there the only ones that would ever have the player?
