You must go to the OPPO website, download the upgrade and the instructions and use either the CD or USB option. I've tried it and it solved the problem I was having with the special versions on the Alien Anthology Blu-ray discs. This upgrade applies to both the BDP-83 and BDP-83SE.
The preamp/processor I use is manufactured by Krell and does a fine job except it was not upgradable to HDMI. Having to face that fact required I work around its limitations with switches and alternative connections and utilize the analog connections for multichannel SACD, DVD-A, Dolby True HD, and DTS Master Audio.
When the BDP-83 came out last summer I ordered one and used the analog outputs to connect the audio signal to my Krell HTS; that worked satisfactorily although I had to route the signal through a Zektor MAS 7.1 audio switch as I already had a Pioneer DV-47A Universal player which was connected using the multi-audio output and the Krell had only one multi-channel audio input. I had no observable problem with the BDP-83 on any of the media that I played. I have an extensive collection of CD's, SACD's, and DVD-A's to which I enjoy listening and experienced no problems.
When I became aware of the BDP-83SE I was excited at the prospect of improving the quality of sound that I enjoyed from my system.Read more ›
But before I get to that, a couple years ago I bought the then top of the line OPPO DVD player, the 983H, largely because of its superior audio circuity, and it did sound noticeably better than my previous Pioneer player, especially on SACDs, but also on CD and DVD. When I bought the Blu-ray player last November, I noticed that all 3 formats also sounded a little better again. Plus, on SACDs, you now have the option of playing them in native DSD format instead of PCM and, to my ear, native DSD is a further and significant upgrade over PCM even on the same Blu-ray player, more significant, in fact, than the improvement of PCM playback from 983H to BPB 83. I upgraded the audio system in my library by putting the older OPPO there. When I sent the Blu-ray player out for the upgrade I put the older OPPO back in my main system while Blu-ray player was gone and really missed it because I felt like I was missing so much that I had been hearing. I had noticed a small upgrade when I put it in but now I was noticing a LARGE downgrade when I took it out. Now it is back.Read more ›
BDP-83 V.S BDP-83SE
I would have to say the biggest difference between the standard 83 to the 83SE (via analog outputs) would be the edgy, harsh and fatiguing sound signature. This fatiguing sound signature was reason in itself to upgrade to the 83SE. I'm glad to report that the 83SE after many days of break-in the sound is so smooth sounding that the mid and high frequencies no longer sound fatiguing allowing me to hear more since my ears weren't hurting (ringing) any longer!
7.1 multi-channel analog performance:
Friday I started with the 7.1 multi-channel SACD listening and just couldn't believe the detail and dynamic range, I have never heard such detail and dynamic range in my life! When I compare the performance from my BDP-83SE's 7.1 multi-channel analog outputs to that of my digital coaxial multi-channel performance, the coaxial sound quality just seems well digital, mechanical and lifeless when compared to the BDP-83SE analog outputs!Read more ›
