Oppo Blu Ray player


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a place that sells Oppo bluray players? I have asked a couple shops and it seems that they are all out of stock and not sure when they get them in.

These guys seem to have them in stock whenever I visit: http://www.piyanas.com/?page_id=790

I bought mine from Piyanas.

Thanks, gave them a call and also out of stock and aren't sure if they will get anymore. They told me Oppo may not make anymore players.

They recommended I try Pioneer and told me picture quality was just as good if not better than Oppo, but its 10k thb more.

Anyone use Pioneer and is it worth it?

It's hard to imagine Oppo will be leaving the AV source market, seeing as how hard they've worked to carve out a name for themselves over the past 10 years or so.

Perhaps their new UHD Bluray range is close and the distributor doesn't want to be left with 1080P stock no-one wants? Perhaps the Thai distributor just wants to focus on smartphones?

I don't know if they have stock but several department stores used to have them. Paragon, Central etc. They are normally in the section with the Soken 'hifi' because I think they either have the same parent company or distributor.

I've checked both and no luck, they all told me same thing, not sure when/if will get anymore.

I even tried calling Oppo/Soken to see who still sells them and was told that they make not stock them anymore.

The BPD 103 model can be bought on eBay for $835 which includes the global shipping program costs that ensure its delivered to your door without any further import charges etc.

I have used ebay global shipping many times and although it's expensive it really works.

I guess the only thing is you would have to check if it's only coded for region 1 DVDs or whatever they use if they use anything.

I understood Oppo had the blu-ray audio ( SACD and Pure Audio ) formats to themselves until you get to exotic players that will make your nose bleed with their prices. I couldn't see them giving that up - probably Oppo is exporting to more profitable countries and demand exceeds manufacture.

i want one myself .

I bought a Pioneer player for the master bedroom.

It performs equally as well as the Oppo considering I don't have a high performance surround system in there.

I had planned to get the oppo 103 model but just hadn't got around to making a trip to piyanas at fortune town. Now that I know they are out of stock and may not be getting any more, I just saw another global format one on EBay so I may just order from there as I don't mind paying the 200 odd dollars shipping and customs if I really have to.

Ok, so just went to Piyanas and they told me that Oppo is changing their distributor but don't when it will done. They will be getting more stock but it will probably take a while.

They recommend I look at the Pioneer LX58 which is basically the same as the Oppo 103 but 1,000 thb cheaper. They had a sample set up and I gotta say the picture quality and sound is pretty impressive and I ended up ordering this one instead.

It's quite easy to find mod chips for the Oppo so that it can play all regions of Blu-ray.
