Breaking News: OPPO Digital to cease development of new products
Oppo have announced some earth shattering news for their band of loyal fans and enthusiasts, many of them AVForums members with the announcement of no new product development and a withdrawal from the market in the UK by summer 2018.This is the statement in full, more when we get it...
It has been 14 years since OPPO Digital was established in the United States, and with the support of customers, technical partners, and movie/music studios, OPPO produced many award-winning Hi-Fi audio products and universal disc players, spanning three generations from DVD, Blu-ray, to 4K UHD.
As OPPO’s latest 4K UHD players reach the pinnacle of their performance, it is time to say goodbye. OPPO are proud to have made such well-regarded products and to have served the enthusiast community. Without its customers' suggestions, encouragement, and support, OPPO could not have accomplished these achievements.
Though OPPO Digital will gradually stop manufacturing new products, existing products will continue to be supported, warranties will still be valid, and both in-warranty and out-of-warranty repair services will continue to be available. Firmware will continue to be maintained and updates released from time to time. Customers can rest assured that they will continue to receive the high quality service and support that they have come to expect from OPPO Digital.
OPPO Digital UK will continue to trade while stocks last. However it expects to close its doors in the Summer. Technical support, warranty claims, servicing and spares will in future be handled by a third party, with details to follow. All commitments made by OPPO Digital UK will be met.
Nigel Rich, Managing Director of OPPO Digital UK had this to say: “We can be very proud of our achievements over the past few years. Along with market leading products, we have provided first rate customer service and support from our offices here in Norwich. I am very proud of our staff and very sad that we will now be closing our doors for good. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our European distributors, retailers and, of course most importantly, the people that have purchased OPPO products in Europe. We will continue to support products in and out of warranty and we have made provisions to continue this high level of service.”
