Oppo BDP-93 Networking Universal Blu-ray Player

 


Here we have an option for those who want minimal hardware and configuration.  It's an option that can act as a media player(network streaming media, playing from external storage/usb), play blu-rays, upconvert and play DVDs at 1080p.

Oppo BDP-93 Networking Universal Player



Ya, Ya I know.  Many of you are saying, "I don't want this thing, I'll just use....(insert whatever device here)".  The difference with this product is its quality.  This is a high end product with unsurpassed performance.




Some of the new important features I've summarized for this product:

  • Blu-ray 3D support
  • Netflix streaming support
  • CinemaNow support
  • Additional network streaming features will be announced once partners certify the player. Oppo has divulged several of their potential partners to us and users should not be disappointed.
  • Wireless-N networking
  • Dual HDMI outputs.  The two HDMI ports can be configured to support separate video and audio paths, or to support two displays at the same time.  This is a solid option for those who have a 3D TV but no compatibility in their receiver.
  • Marvell KYOTO G2 chipset with Qdeo video processig(though prototypes were also built with the ABT2015).  When I spoke of high end previously, this is one reason.  This processor is one of the best on the market.  Its up-conversion capabilities are well known and totally solid.  
  • eSATA port in addition to two USB ports
