Product Description

The Oppo BDP-95eu Set the Universal Blu-Ray Standard Now Save $100 on the Blu-ray Player-of-the-Year Award Winner from Every Single Major Audio and Video Publication When we ran out of the best-selling BDP-95s, we had Oppo scour the earth looking for more. Fortunately, they were able to find us a few in the UK. Purchased directly from Oppo UK, these BDP-95eu models have been factory updated to US software, US Voltage and come with US manuals and power cords. Plus you still receive the full factory warranty from Oppo USA and Music Direct's industry-leading 30-day 100% satisfaction guarantee. "Oppo's universal players have earned a reputation for versatility and value, with each new model offering better features and sound quality than the last. Even so, we see Oppo's $999 BDP-95 as a watershed product that, through sheer sonic excellence, establishes a new performance benchmark for digital players...the BDP-95 sounds stunning for the money, making it our Budget Component of the Year!" - The Absolute Sound, Product of the Year Issue, January 2011 The new Oppo BDP-95eu is simply the very best Blu-ray player for under a grand. This player streams video (Netflix, Vudu, and others), plays back 3D material with unparalleled quality, upsamples DVDs to almost Blu-ray quality, and Oppo even added two HDMI outputs. On the audio side, no Blu-ray Universal Player has this much audiophile credibility! Sound quality on SACD, DVD-A, and CD is simply unparalleled. "The BDP-95 is the player to beat if you are looking for a reference grade universal disc player. I have not had another under-$5,000 player in my system that could outdo the OPPO with its audio performance. Without a doubt there will be some new players released from established audiophile brands that are based on a new OPPO player; some of them may even offer better performance but they will undoubtedly come at a much higher price" - Brian Kahn, Home Theater Review This ver

Even though the player is great, check around locally for pricing.

Oppo support is excellent, I had a problem with the HDMI jack and they sent me a new one right away and there have been no problem since.

Under those circumstances the Oppo was more refined & had a better soundstage (IMO soundstaging is this puppy's #1 strength).

The Oppo 95 is an amazing piece of gear. Too many DVD players focus on the video at the expense of audio. This is a challenge especially for people who have a great collection of concert videos. What sets the Oppo 95 apart from all other blu-ray players is that it has an incredible audio DAC. This player sounds as good at any $2000 audiophile SACD/CD player. A true must for HEARING as well as SEEING concert videos.

Even though the player is great, check around locally for pricing. See the Oppo website for a retailed near you. The price on Amazon is not the normal selling price, which should be $999.

PS Oppo, if you read this....add an ipod USB port that pulls the signal bypassing the ipod DAC and playing it through the Oppo DAC. Do that and you have have a truely world class product.

Caveat: all comments below are based on a stock BDP-95. The region free modded model is the only version on Amazon at this time. While I did buy the region free hardware kit (at about 10% of the extra pricing on this version) & installed it myself; mine was purchased stock.

Please consider this a placeholder review; I plan to greatly expand on it in the future; especially as I have spent little time with standard cd on the player.

My main purpose in buying this player was for hi-res audio; I don't even own a hi-def television. I was hoping to find a relatively inexpensive player (by high end standards) that would make hi-res music sound better than cd's currently do on my cd front end. It's replacing a Pioneer DV-578A that was great for the price, but was of lower sonic quality than the rest of my system.

I'm now at around 5 weeks of the unit being powered up for burn in. I'm using the Shunyata Venom power cord, & a 90's Tara (unbalanced RCA) "Analog Standard" interconnect.

While very sensitive to the mastering quality of what it's playing, on hi res this puppy is STAGGERING. I am stunned that this level of musicality is available at this price point. The only better front end I have ever owned was an entry level (around 2k in early 90's dollars) Well Tempered Record Player with a Blue Point standard; & that is based on a very OLD memory as I had to sell the TT in 1995.

2 tips for new owners:

1. People have told me it needs 100-500 hours of burn in before it sounds it's best. That has been my experience also. While it actually sounds quite good right out of the box, at 5 weeks it's still getting better & better.

I bought this about 6 months ago. Oppo 95 rocks! It plays CD, MP3, DVD, and Blu Ray like no other player I have ever owned. I have owned most of the Blue Box upper end types. The sound quility is right on and picture is even better. You would have to buy a CD player in the thousands and then a upper end Blu Ray player in the thousands on top of that to match what this can do. Pandora sounds as good as CDs and Sdacs through this machine. If you are sitting on the fence do buy this and you will be happy. Oppo support is excellent, I had a problem with the HDMI jack and they sent me a new one right away and there have been no problem since. If you have high end equipment this device will make them shine.

Got an Oppo BDP-95 media player for a screening room at a recording studio. This review is after a couple months experience with it ...

Good points are that it produces clear video and provides balanced audio output so SACDs sound very good.

Bad points are a lot more numerous:

o The worst feature is that it sports a noisy fan which runs even at relatively low temperatures ... it's the loudest thing in the screening room (by 16-20 dB!) For non-critical consumer use that might be OK (one can't hear the fan over a typical compressed soundtrack with explosions and gunshots), but for professional use, we need to hear the soft parts too! So it had to be moved to a separate machine room, which is a lot less convenient.

o Only the stereo output of the BDP-95 is balanced ... analog surround output is unbalanced; so for professional purposes the highly touted D/A converters are only useful when it's used as an [SA]CD player. Those ADCs _are_ better than found in typical consumer electronics, but make no mistake, they are not really studio quality (nor, arguably, do they need to be since they only have to deliver consumer-level audio).

o The BDP-95 does not play well with 3D Blu-Ray equipment via HDMI ... when playing many BD-3D discs, the HDMI signal delivered to a 3D HDTV is not recognized as 3D (though the same 3D discs and 3D-HDTV work fine with other brand players such as a $60 LG). Perhaps Oppo will fix this with firmware upgrade someday.

o A pet peeve -- it is shipped double boxed with the outer box filled with those ecologically-horrible pink styrofoam peanuts, which pick up a static charge and get everywhere. What a pain. Really, for a supposedly premium vendor, Oppo could do better.
