Posted Tue Jul 7, 2009 at 06:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

Hailed as the entry level high end Blu-Ray Player to own, the Oppo BDP-83 is finally available for wide release.

Early reviews are extremely promising for this player, putting it up there with the other heavy hitters, but at a comfortable $500.

Supporting a huge range of optical disc formats including SACD, DVD-Audio, DVD Up-Conversion, MKV, HDCD, and more in addition to Blu-Ray support, the BDP-83 is truly a universal player. Boasting Anchor Bay’s VRS technology to ensure the finest picture quality and a full 1080p, 60hz output, Oppo has their sights set high, and the individual analog 7.1 outputs send a rich Dolby TrueHD signal out to speakers.

The BDP-83 began shipping from various internet retailers or directly from Oppo beginning July 6th.
