Oppo DV-980H upconverting universal DVD player


OPPO Digital has released their latest up-converting player for Standard DVDs. The DV-980H has a 1080p output, 7.1 channel audio with Dolby Digital Surround EX decoding, and optimized high-fidelity audio circuitry for Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio, HDCD and regular CDs. Add to that Kodak Picture CD for high resolution picture slide shows, a USB 2.0 interface, and the ability to play all versions of DivX video (including DivX 6) with standard playback of DivX media files. While it doesn’t support Blu-ray or the failed HD DVD, it certainly is a lot less expensive for $169.00.

Even though the price is low i don’t think it should be recommended,blu ray is the future and an investment in a ble ray compatible system would be better course of action.

Well, if you have a smaller HDTV, Blu-Ray might not make that much sense.  An upconverted DVD will probably be indistinguishably different on a 19” HDTV.  On a much larger screen size though you will be able to tell the difference more easily.

I have to agree with buckeyes assessment.
If you view these converted files on a huge screen, you will probably loose some detail.
