Oppo's affordable high-end Blu-ray player is here

The company's BDP-83 Blu-ray Disc Player with SACD & DVD-Audio is finally available after almost a 10-month wait.

Amazon is set to ship the Oppo BDP-83 on July 6 for $500. Oppo

Over the years Oppo's developed a following for its impressive upscaling DVD players, so a lot its fans were wondering when its much-anticipated BDP-83 Blu-ray Disc Player would finally show up after being announced last year. Well, it's finally here, and the official price tag is about what we expected: $500.

The idea behind the Oppo BDP-83 is that you're getting a high-end Blu-ray player for mid-range money. Oppo touts the Anchor Bay video processing and the player has support for both SACD and DVD-Audio and is loaded with connectivity, including 2 USB ports, an Ethernet jack for BD-Live content, and 7.1 analog audio. However, it lacks any sort of streaming video service, such as Netflix.

Anybody excited the BDP-83 is finally here?
