Oppo Confirms BDP-80 Discontinued, Hints at Future Blu-ray Plans

Posted September 22, 2010 04:30 AM by Juan Calonge

OPPOConfirming the scoop this site gave you just days ago about the end of life for the Oppo BDP-80 Blu-ray player (see Blu-ray.com, September 19), Oppo Digital replied to our query for confirmation with the following: "The BDP-80 has been discontinued and we do not have any immediate plans to design or sell a replacement product." The CE maker clarified that it is working on a new Blu-ray platform, but it will probably not be released until early 2011, or "if we are lucky," by end-of-year 2010.

Oppo explained to Blu-ray.com that they "will not be making any product announcements at CEDIA," the reason being that "our general business motto is to only announce a product when it is available for immediate purchase."

The discontinuation has also been announced through Oppo's Facebook page. No reasons were given for this decision. However, when asked there if a new, cheaper BDP-80 was coming, the reply was: "Definitely some exciting things coming down the pipe, stay tuned."

And that's my question from Facebook. =)

I guess the sub $99 players from the majors are too attractive for the BDP-80 target market, and anyone else would hopefully get a BDP-83 anyway.

3D players? That seems the logical next step.

I would have upgraded to an Oppo player, but at this point I'm not replacing my (pricey early adopter) Panasonic without it being a 3D player. And since there's only a handful of titles in 3D, I hardly see an upgrade anytime soon.

What is the resolution coming from Netflix streaming? And I personally want their new player to include dvd audio and sacd. I love my music more than 1080p and would like the convenience of having it all on one quality player. Marantz and Denon have also delayed the debut of their 3d blu-ray players to December.

my guess:
BDP-90
-HDMI 1.5
-4k 3D support
-32-bit/384kHz 11.x
-all streaming support (amz, netflix, itunes airplay, etc.)
-abtXXXX upscale support
-3-D AND BD-J @the same time (unlike the PS3)
-ofc SACD/DVDA
-in addition to current file formats played by Oppo, they'll support multi-channel high-res .flac (hopefully)
-level 5.x or 6.x .mkv playback AND multi-channel .flac muxed in <-this would rock

I duno the resolution but Netflix gives you a bar graph as a barometer of the PQ of what you are viewing, I think it's like 10 little bars only once have I seen the bar fully highlighted and when that happens an HD symbol appears. The PQ was stellar. Mostly I've seen between 6-8 of the bars highlighted with 6-7 being DVD quality

Thank you for the response. Still trying to figure out the whole netflix appeal and I work in A/V sales. Not a box store.

@WGIBBS: You really don't understand the appeal of Netflix? Or are you saying you don't understand why someone would be willing to compromise a/v quality by streaming content? The latter is an understandable concern. I have streamed a handful of things and no longer bother unless the title is available in [what Netflix considers to be] HD. However, if you're saying you don't understand why someone would rent rather than buy some of what they watch then I'm a bit puzzled.

@repete66211: The a/v quality is what I meant. Do you know what resolution you are viewing through netflix? Not being a smart ass, I just want to know and have never been able to get a clear picture about this. Thanks in advance.

I have an Oppo BDP-83 and love it. Great build quality and features I want. If they do make a 3D player I'll buy it and keep the BDP-83. That's the kind of product it has been for me. I don't want to replace, just get another...

I wonder what they mean by a "new Blu-ray platform"? They could have said "a new Blu-ray model". Sounds like a complete redesign unless they misspoke.

And I agree that it doesn't make sense for OPPO to go after the lower end because at the low end, people will pick up a mass market player from one of the giants for next to nothing. People just want those players to work - they're not looking for subtle differences in PQ or AQ. So OPPO can't compete there. They've got to stick to the high end at bargain prices. That's where they offer differentiation.

Oppo is over-rated and way over price product.

Over priced compared to what? for the video and audio quality they offer, they are bargain basement compared to any other blu-ray player with similar specs. Maybe that level of quality to you is over-hyped, but for what it offers compared to other players that offer the same, it's a really great value.
