Not only does the Oppo DVD 983 look fantastic, but the folks at Oppo really know how to treat there customers! I've had my 983 for some time now, when I bought a Onkyo 905 a few weeks back, I started to notice some very short sound drop outs(about three~five per movie). I called Oppo and was told to send it in for free repair. They told me they could fix the problem even thoe it was more of a 705 issue. When I got there(a short drive), the friendly folks offer to fix it while I wait. I than asked if the BDP83 had this issue? they said it did not. I asked if the 83 has as good of PQ for DVD playback? They said both units were equal. I asked if I could pay the difference and get the 83? they said no problem! So now I'm a $100. lighter but now own a BDP83.
I'm an Oppo fan boy, but I've never heard of them "trading in" a player for another player. You are a lucky guy. There are many subtle improvements over the 983 incorporated into the -83, so you should really enjoy the player. Head to the BluRay thread and keep reading about it so that you stay informed with the various problems and updates. BluRay is a moving target right now, so expect a few glitches, although all players, not just the Oppo, have them.
