The OPPO DV 980H is a product of OPPO Digital, based in Mountain View, California, released in June 2007. It is a universal DVD player with a 7.1 channel audio and HDMI cable for connectivity. It is capable of producing high definition up-conversion that reaches 1080p.

Features

The DVD player is able to play DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, SACD, CD, HDCD, XviD, DivX, and many other formats. The picture HD quality and the sound surround audio are both of full clarity. Its connections, aside from HDMI also includes Composite, Component, 7.1 CH, 5.1 CH, S-Video, Stereo, Optical and Coaxial.

Review Summary

The OPPO DV-980H is the latest DVD in the company’s line-up of upconverting units. This model has positioned itself between its flagship DV-981HD and the DV-970HD. Its special features are a multichannel SACD and DVD-Audio over HDMI, a DivX/Xvid support and aspect-ratio control. With its excellent image quality, the OPPO DV-980H can upconvert SD DVDs to 1080p but it is not one of the high definition DVD players, Blu-ray or HD-DVD. It can also be made region-free with a simple hack. To make it easier for its users, the OPPO DV-980H offers a full range of options and you wouldn’t have any problems with the setup menus either as the manual explains them all. This model also provides a Control and Navigation wheel rather than the normal Play and Pause buttons. From the outside, the OPPO DV-980H has an attractive and understated black design. Some things that its users have taken a dislike in are the fact that it’s expensive compared to other DVD players and that similarly priced HD DVD players deliver vastly superior image quality on HD DVDs. The OPPO also cannot play either Blu-ray or HD-DVD discs. Aside from that, the OPPO DV-980H has the ability to flexibily playback kall sorts of CD and DVD formats like DivX, DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD (SACD), HDCD, WMA, and Kodak Picture CD. Unlike other manufacturers, the Oppo DV-980H provides you with a six foot HDMI cable when you purchase it. The fact that the Oppo DV-980H has a USB 2.0 port that accepts USB flash drives and card readers which is considered a great deal for photographers. It also supplied a Component video output along with HDMI. It is said that if you're not ready to get a high-def player, the Oppo DV-980H DVD player delivers excellent performance and an unparalleled feature set for the price.
