Just thought of sharing with all:

Dear Stephen,

Thank you for your subscription to our newsletter. We value our relationship with you and will only use the newsletter for important product updates. In this issue, we would like to inform you about the release of our new flagship Blu-ray Disc player BDP-83.

The BDP-83 is a full-featured universal Blu-ray disc player that supports BD Profile 2.0 (BD-Live and BonusView), DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD (SACD), HDCD, CD and other media formats such as AVCHD, MKV video, digital music and photos. Based on and expanded upon our acclaimed up-converting DVD players, the BDP-83 delivers first-class video quality for both Blu-ray and DVD. Utilizing the VRS by Anchor Bay video processing solution, it supports all the high-end video features including 1080p24Hz output, HDMI 1.3 with Deep Color, Source Direct output, and many other picture control and enhancement options.

We did not stop at just video performance. Audio performance is equally important. The BDP-83 supports all the high-resolution audio formats with bit-stream output and onboard decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. For SACD playback, the BDP-83 supports direct DSD over HDMI and DSD-to-analog without any PCM conversion, a very unique feature. The BDP-83 features a refined analog audio stage with a pair of dedicated stereo as well as 7.1ch analog audio outputs.

The BDP-83 is a user-friendly player. Initially setup is a breeze and all operation and setup details are explained in the well-written manual. Users can appreciate its quick start-up, fast disc loading and responsive operation. Setup menus can be accessed without interruption to disc playback. The included front and back USB 2.0 ports enable easy access to music, photo and video. Featuring a heavy gauge brushed aluminum front panel, dimmable display and a sturdy chassis, the BDP-83 fits nicely to any home theater environment, from simple to very high-end. Additional convenient features include a remote control with backlight, IR in and out ports, optional RS-232 control and wireless bridge kit.

It has been a long wait for this unique player. We truly appreciate your patience and support. We took our time to make sure the BDP-83 will uphold the OPPO performance heritage and meet your expectations. During the past year, the BDP-83 went though a lengthy beta test, two rounds of Early Adoption Programs, and many firmware revisions. As a result of the collective contribution of our user community, product reviewers and developers, we feel confident that the BDP-83 is worth the wait. We encourage you to read the reviews from critics, industry experts and end users. Simply perform a web search for "OPPO BDP-83 reviews."
