Quite possibly the internet’s favorite brand, Oppo, is setting up in the UK to expand its Blu-ray business, which will be the main focus going forward.

In a recent conversation with British home theater site Home Cinema Choice, a spokesman for Oppo revealed a bit about the company’s plans for the future. In a matter of a few months, Oppo plans to set up a base in the UK to expand the business of Blu-ray.

As far as DVD goes, that time is over for Oppo according to spokesperson Pan Min. “We have sold out of DVD players and there are no more to come,” he states. “The DVD business is over for us. We are committed to Blu-ray.”

Min also talks a bit about why the brand is so beloved. “We may be a very small company, but where we are different from the likes of Denon and Sony is that we listen to our customers. Feedback is really important.”
