Summary: Amazing picture and sound! My Panasonic Plasma has never looked better and it always looks awesome. Can serve as media PC for most content. Cons: At this price point we should have Gig Ethernet and USB 3.0 for connectivity.
Highly Recommended. Excellent Sound, Picture Quality and Avant-Garde Features.

Summary: Despite this not being the audiophile player in the oppo lineup, the sound is exemplary for the price. I have the FR/FL analog outputs going directly to a topping tp21 integrated amp. The topping is only 15wpc but the sound is robust and textured utilizing the oppo's DAC. Every detail in the sound field is represented with gravitas and clarity which brings life to the sound. While the sound is fairly natural it stops short of having any significant 3d qualities.
Summary: Oppo arrived on time and was extremely well packaged. Somebody really put some thought into this device. I haven't installed it yet but just going through the extremely well written manual I have no doubts about the capabilities of this machine. It simply is outstanding when compared to the specs on other machines.

Summary: So glad I read about OPPO and purchased this one to integrate with new Sony 4k UHD TV. Darbee processor is icing on the cake. Been having fun checking out the apps and streaming so far. Will be looking at more OPPO products to add!
Summary: The picture and sound are probably no better than what I got from the Oppo BDP-80 that this is replacing... until I kick in the Darbee effect. It's subtle but it definitely adds detail and dimensionality. It's good enough that I'm routing my satellite receiver and media player through it to use the Darbee effect on those as well. It also adds the ability to handle 3D Blu-rays, which I'm enjoying to a degree.
Summary: This is a really nice product for watching 3D DVDs on a Sony 4k television. It is great for listening to music CDs and some of my old movie DVDs look like a later version release. Easy to connect with wi-fi and I am currently using it for my Netflix streaming.
