Here is the new Oppo Universal blu-ray player :

OPPO BDP-80 Blu-ray Disc Player - Features and Specifications


It plays SACD

Complete Media Support:

* Blu-ray Disc - The high definition Blu-ray Disc™ format provides pristine video and audio quality for your home entertainment.
* BonusVIEW - BD "Profile 1.1" enables "picture-in-picture" and secondary audio features for viewing director or actor commentary while the main movie is playing.
* BD-Live™ - BDP-80 supports BD "Profile 2.0" and contains all necessary hardware - audio/video decoder, Ethernet port, and 1GB of internal storage - for BD-Live.
* DVD Up-Conversion - The BDP-80 up-converts DVD from standard definition up to 1080p output. The up-converted video maximizes DVD picture quality and bridges the visual gap from your current DVD library to Blu-ray discs.
* DVD-Audio - The BDP-80 plays DVD-Audio and supports both stereo and multi-channel high resolution audio programs. Users can select whether to play the DVD-Audio or the DVD-Video portion of the disc.
* SACD - The BDP-80 plays Super Audio CD (SACD) and supports both stereo and multi-channel high resolution audio programs. The BDP-80 can output DSD (Direct Stream Digital) over HDMI in its native format or convert into PCM. (Analog audio output for SACD supports PCM mode only, and is not avialable when DSD over HDMI is in use.)
* Additional Media Formats - Additional disc and file formats, such as audio CD, HDCD, Kodak Picture CD, AVCHD, MKV, and other audio/video/picture files on recorded discs or USB drives can be played back on the BDP-80.


Video Quality:


* Full HD 1080p Output - The BDP-80 features user selectable video output resolutions, including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and up to 1080p 50 or 60Hz.
* True 24p™ Video - Many Blu-ray Discs are recorded at 24 frames per second, the same frame rate as the original movie's theatrical release. The BDP-80 can faithfully redeliver the original frames using 1080p 24Hz output (compatible display required) for smoother motion and a flicker-free, film-like home theater experience.
* Source Direct Mode - For users who wish to use an external video processor, high-end audio/video receiver or display, the BDP-80 offers a ™Source Direct™ mode. The original audio/video content on the discs is sent out with no additional processing or alteration.
* Multiple Zoom Modes - The BDP-80 supports multiple levels of aspect ratio control and image zooming, including a vertical stretch mode for customers with a 2.35:1 CIH (Constant Image Height) display system.
* Subtitle Shift - The BDP-80 is able to shift subtitles up or down on the video screen. This feature makes it possible to see all subtitle text when using a 2.35:1 CIH display system.
* HDMI - HDMI is an all digital interface for the cleanest possible connection. It delivers high-quality digital video and audio through a single cable. The BDP-80 features an HDMI v1.3 output with 30-bit and 36-bit Deep Color support.


High Fidelity Audio:

* Dolby® TrueHD - Dolby TrueHD delivers lossless studio master quality audio designed specifically for high definition entertainment. The BDP-80 supports bit-stream output of Dolby TrueHD via its HDMI 1.3 output. It can also internally decode Dolby TrueHD into LPCM and output via HDMI or the 7.1ch analog audio output terminals. (Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus audio formats are also supported.)
* DTS-HD Master Audio™ - DTS-HD Master Audio delivers an auditory experience that matches the lifelike images of high-definition video with up to 7.1 channels that are bit-for-bit identical to the studio master. The BDP-80 supports bit-stream output of DTS-HD Master Audio. It can also internally decode DTS-HD Master Audio and output via HDMI or the 7.1ch analog audio output terminals. (DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and DTS Digital Surround are also supported.)
* 7.1-Channel Analog Output - Individual analog 7.1-channel surround outputs are ideal to connect to a 7.1-channel or 5.1-channel surround sound system. The BDP-80 delivers an immersive surround experience. For users with a stereo sound system, the 7.1-channel analog output can be configured to down-mix the surround audio into stereo.
* Digital Optical and Coaxial Outputs - For easy connection to more traditional A/V receivers, the BDP-80 features both optical and coaxial outputs for digital audio.


Ultimate Convenience:

* Dual USB Ports - Two USB 2.0 high speed ports are provided, one on the front panel and one on the back. Users can enjoy high definition video, high resolution photos and music directly from their USB drives.
* PAL/NTSC Conversion - The BDP-80 supports NTSC and PAL systems for both disc playback and video output. It can also convert content of one system for output in another. (Subject to DVD and BD region restrictions.)
* Glow-in-the-Dark Remote Control - The BDP-80 comes with a remote control with glow-in-the-dark buttons. With its ergonomic button layout and clear labeling, operating the Blu-ray Disc player is easy and intuitive.
* Universal Power Supply - The BDP-80 features a wide-range world power supply that is compatible with the AC power of all regions. No worries about damaging the player due to incorrect power voltage.
* HDMI CEC - HDMI Consumer Electronics Control simplifies the home theater by allowing a single remote control to operate multiple devices.

Looks very similar on the rear panel to the Cambridge Audio player, as expected.

So, depending on pricing, if the CA is released here in Feb, you could get that if you don't want to import. Will make it interesting to see if this platform supports similar MR mods to the '83, and therefore also the CA. Which also means will Richer Sounds fit such a mod for the CA?

It can be made region free with a hardware mod.

I emailed bluraychip.dk and here is their answer :

Cool, so will Richer Sounds take up the consumer mantle and sell multi-region Blu-ray players with the mod pre-fitted on the CA model?

Where's their operations director when you need him? :D

So, if you don't want the ABT video processing, use source direct and don't use analogue outputs, this would appear to be the new Oppo to get presumably?

That's what Oppo says :
" The BDP-80 is incredibly well suited as a digital transport to feed into an external video processor, a high-end A/V receiver or display device with built-in video processing. The BDP-80 is also recommended to be used as a stand-alone Blu-ray/DVD/CD-player that offers higher video and audio quality than many mass-market players."

Will be interesting to see were CA pitch the price of the 650BD. IIRC the US MRSP mentioned in a few places is $799. The Oppo 80 is $289 so I wonder what you get for the difference with the CA ?

Have CA released a UK price for the 650BD ?

I like this a lot.

Roll on some reviews. This will surely beat all the competition out there, yes ?

What can compete with this ?

No UK price I've found, however, on Amazon.com in the US, it's $699, which is more than an Oppo BDP-83.

So, I guess about £400-£500. Now, the big question is whether CA have done anything in addition to the std. platform. Perhaps there will be one at the Bristol Show if CA are there. Would be interesting to see the insides if so.

I found the Sep 09 press release from CA that has their MSRP - Cambridge Audio unveils its first Blu-ray universal player offering super-quick operation and sensational audio performance / Press / Cambridge Audio

That would make it expensive compared to an Oppo 80 import c. £260 will "all" tax/duty applied maybe less depending what tax actually gets applied.

Pretty much as expected and as a 'source direct' machine will win many friends here. Not sure about the analogue multi channel outs...could have saved more money but perhaps now isn't the time as people will still buy this.

Just to add that if you want it to sound and look like an 'Oppo' it will need to have an Oppo badge on the front not a CA one. Oppos number one selling point is their firmware support (and tweaks to decoders etc), many things may look superficially similar but the devil will always be in the detail :)

It won't but it would be no different to multi channel audio from Blu rays in this respect. Basically a feature only a few will use but everyone pays for.

Does this player do DTS re encode?

Possibly but I guess that goes for any feature we don't use. I think it's a case of they're dammed if they do or dammed if they don't regarding analogue support. Probably easier to have a single product and at $289 it still reasonably priced.
