    (bold added)
    Just talked to Oppo about my 93 order and they said that they were doing a firmware update this morning and shipping this AM.

    I know, a bit off topic, but there has been a fair amount of talk on the following in this thread already.
    I asked about the 95 and was told that r would be available for release in late January at $975.00...

    The ESS dacs are back with Balanced stereo analog outputs (I would assume so on the MCH analog outputs as well).
    Furthermore, the add also mention a beefed up powersupply with a large toroidal transformer.
    I wonder what else is under the hood.
    So far I like what i have read....

      $979

      The New Oppo BDP-95 Universal Blu-ray Player Sets the Standard… Again

      The BDP-95 Will Be 2011's Blu-ray Player of the Year!

      Oppo has been hard at work this year. Instead of resting on their laurels Oppo spent the year with their heads down working on the “next best Blu-ray player.”
      The new Oppo BDP-95 is the now the new standard in Blu-ray players under a grand.
      This new player now streams video (Netflix, Vudu, and others). It will play back 3D material with the level of quality you expect. Oppo added two HDMI outputs.

      This is the audiophile version, so Oppo added the newest ESS Sabre DAC chipset, which enhanced the sound of the player dramatically.
      For CD, SACD, and DVD-A playback, the BDP-95 is even tougher to beat.
      Oppo also added balanced stereo outputs and improved the power supply section with a large toroidal transformer at its core.
      The video performance also gets big upgrade, as this player upscales DVD better than players twice the price.
      The BDP-95's native Blu-ray playback is quite simply the industry standard.
      We expect to start seeing another round of glowing reviews shortly.
      Our highest recommendation!

      Specs Coming Soon!

          I'm sure it'll be fantastic, like all of Oppo's players, but I don't really like the looks all that much. I think the 83 looks better.

            From comments on the AVS site, given that I use Source Direct (to Lumagen) and HDMI, I don't think I would have a sonic or video benefit.
            However, they look cool and offer a lot.

              I guess I'm a cheapskate, but I remember and miss the Oppo that several years ago was the value leader for high end DVD players at less than high end prices - they seem to have gone straight to the other end of the market.

              I'm sure I'll have Oppo envy, but its going to be a PS3 for me.

                I think it is still high value, just at a different price point / audience target.

                When the Oppo DVD players were out there were plenty of cheaper DVD players out and some people thought the Oppo's were priced higher.

                I think it's still above entry level prices, but just shifted up in total cost.

                But I agree, not as easy to pick up as $100 range players.

                  I think that is why they have the bdp-80 out. The BDP-83SE and now this BDP-95 are geared towards the audiophile crowd who are entusiasts.

                    The BDP-80 has been discontinued due to a lack of parts.

                          so does that mean they are going to come out with a model "90" to fill in the low end????

                            When they were selling DVD players, their prices ranged from $150 (the DV-970HD) or $170 (the DV-980H) to $400 (the DV-983H), with $200 being right in the middle of their range for most of their players. At the the time, most consumers were buying players from Panasonic, Sony, or other companies that cost $70 to $120 - with $70 being more common as their player prices rose. They were only a value leader when competing with Denon and the like.

                            For Blu-ray players, they are not attempting to compete with the big brands that are selling BD players for under $200. They are too small to do that. What they are doing is competing with Denon, Marantz, and the "high end" brands. When seen in that light, the BDP-83 and BDP-93's price of $500 looks pretty sweet when combined with the provided video performance (both DVD and BD), analog section quality, and support.

                              So far there has been no announcement of a BDP-90.
