Oppo DV-970HD Universal Player [Expired]


no longer for sale

A very well known and reviewed player in excellent condition. Don't have the original box but will pack it very well. Lost the original remote, so the remote supplied is a brand new factory remote from Oppo for the 970HD. At asking price will ship for free within the US via USPS Parcel Post. Read the review from Stereophile's Wes Phillips: So how good can a $149 player be? The Oppo DV-970HD is very good. Using its internal D/A converters, the Oppo produces listenable, detailed, extremely satisfying sound from pretty much every optical-disc format currently available. However, as a standalone universal player, it won't cause Krell's Dan D'Agostino or Ayre's Charlie Hansen any sleepless nights. On the other hand, the DV-970HD is aimed at A/V enthusiasts, who generally use their players' digital outputs and perform the D/A conversion offboard. If you have a hi-rez DAC that can utilize 96kHz signals, you can benefit from that increased bandwidth, as I did. If you have HDMI-compatible gear, you can benefit from 24-bit word length as well, although I did not audition the DV-970HD that way, since none of my A/V gear supports that standard (I'm hi-fi proud, but HT poor). I was impressed by the Oppo DV-970HD. It looks good, it feels solid and reassuringly well-built, and I was impressed by the company's service ethic. I see why it has become a favorite among consumers. Its performance as a standalone player wasn't where I felt its true potential lies, but when connected to a good DAC it punched way outside its class. Here's the part that may truly mark me as an ass: After I'd done everything I've written about here, I finally installed the DV-970HD in my home theater, where I discovered that it's also an extremely impressive DVD player. If you like that sort of thing.
