    Oppo UDP-203 Preorder Has Started

    The wait is over. I just received an email from Oppo that they are starting preorders for their highly-anticipated 4K Blu-ray player.



    The UPD-203 is the company's first 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray player. This player is also compatible with HDR discs and utilizes the new quad-core video processor the OP8591 which was designed in partnership with MediaTec. This processor is said to offer "the most advanced image decoding and processing technology available for 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and user generated media formats".

    On the audio side, this player has 7.1 analog audio outputs which are fed by "premium 32-bit DAC from AKM, the AK4458VN, which is an 8-channel DAC with support for formats such as 192 kHz / 32-bit PCM and multi-channel DSD64/128".

    There is a ton of information about the UDP-203 on its product page. OPPO UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player

    Who's buying? I know David has already picked his out.

    I'll hopefully have one by the end of the week, but it may not be that soon depending on how their orders go this week.

    Since I don't have a 4K-able display, I'm passing on the preorder. So maybe that will help you out.

    I ordered mine within a few minutes of receiving the e-mail. That means I Have to retire my RPTV. I haven't added anything new to my system since 2006. I calibrate my Mits. every year and it has a fantastic picture. I don't own a Blu-Ray. I still have my original Oppo Player, from many moons ago. My up-graded Elite player was strictly optimized for DVD-Audios and SACD's. Some of you that have been here for many years might remember the AIX DVD-A's I used to review.

    It is getting to be a real chore pushing the clutch in on my cars, so it looks like I might start staying home and listening and watching.

    Man, I put off replacing my Mitz RPCRT for the longest time. After I finally did I wondered why I waited so long. I think you'll love the convenience of HDMI and the fact you can do most of the calibration yourself, if you even have to. These days, the better displays come with settings that are about 80-90% of a pro calibration. Not to mention there will NEVER be another issue with convergence.

    Embrace technology my friend.

    I was going to chime in with the exact same advice. My neighbor and I were just discussing the LG 65" OLED displays tonight...we both may be ordering them in January.

    Also, I'll have my Oppo tomorrow
