As we know the super GIANT BBK ELECTRONICS of CHINA, once promised to show SONY down whos the king. Has actually done that for a few YEARS. OPPO informally announced that it was coming out with a new Blu-ray Disc player (BDP-93EU) that included 3D Blu-ray playback and Internet streaming functions. They will not be sending the unit to WHATHIFI, the reason we all know. WhatHIFI doesnt know JACK, we have seen that past, regularly changing its reviews. We see SONY and WHATHIFI as best friends a marriage that will only lead to a good death. Now, as promised, more specific details have been published, and it looks like OPPO may have another winner on its hands (pending further hand’s on reviews from the press and forthcoming users).
In addition to 3D and NetStreaming (from services such as Netflix and Blockbuster), OPPO also confirms that the BDP-93 also continues OPPO’s tradition of providing both SACD and DVD-Audio Disc playback as well as compatibility with a host of other formats, including, but not limited to, HDCD, MKV, DivX, and standard audio CDs. The BDP-93 can also play back media files from connected USB Flash or eSATA drives. Of course, standard DVD isn’t left out. The BDP-93 features a Marvell QDEO Kyoti-G2 88DE2750 upscaling chip which, if implemented properly, should provide excellent deinterlacing and 1080p upscaling for DVD playback.
On the convenience side of things, the BDP-93 also provides Dual HDMI outputs that enable the user to connect one HDMI output directly to a 3D-TV, while using the second HDMI output for connecting a separate audio feed to a pre-3D capable home theater receiver.
The announced price for the BDP-93 is $499, which is $200 less that its closest rival, the Yamha BD-A1000, that offers a similar feature set.
For a complete listing of the BDP-93′s features, including photos of the video processing board and chips, check out the Official OPPO BDP-93 Product Page. Availability will be announced soon but we have solid news it will be before christmas, SONY is stressed what to do with there players. BBK had tried the BDP 80 and soon seen how sony sees it cheap and plastic. Quality needs to be there if anything is done, the quality will be the BEST for the Europeans clients. As we said before fake rubbish reviews have kept BRITISH customers away. This is 100% free good produce NOT GM, the best OPPO.
We heard path got to sold to path???? did i hear that right??? Yes, Path PLC sold to Path Products Ltd. Same scam as the savastore/saverstore.
Every staff and their customer knew Path was going down, thanks to Comet their biggest customer left them for M@nster the American Giant.
Actually i really feel sorry for What Hifi and there editors, whos going to pay there salary??? they did see that coming. Dont worry what hifi will still rub some customers. We have inside news that shows that What Hifi gave X brand 3/5 and Y brand 5/5 even though they are made in the same factory same supplier for cable…. figure it out….
After a period of sustained difficult trading, the assets and trade of the Path Group has been sold under administration as a Pre-Pack to Path Products Ltd, a division of the Vestatec Group.
Joe Carri, CEO said “I am pleased to be able to make this announcement; we have always taken great pride in bringing great brands to market such as IXOS® and HeadFunk®, through a strong team of committed people. I look forward to taking the next steps in the evolution of our business and this would not have been possible without the support from Vestatec.”
Robert Drake, CEO of Vestatec said “I have seen both the Path and IXOS® brands evolve over the last 20 years, and this move will strengthen both our companies, and generate further possibilities for our partners”
This move will allow Path Products Ltd to continue to expand its product lines through award winning products and acclaimed dealer training.”
Octava Inc., specialists in HD video distribution, announced the release of HDCATS-100. The HDCATS-100 HDMI over CAT5e/6 Extender allows transmission of HDMI, 100baseT Ethernet data and IR over 1 single CAT-5 / 6. We have seen CYPRESS release the same product but is using Gefen as a test dummy. Cyp europe has no stock either as they wait for the chipset to get cheaper? Even if it does the price WILL NOT be passed to the end user. Reason is that CYP thinks customers are dumb and we are stuck in the War struck NAZI rule in GERMANY. Let them as the world moves on the way GANDHI did it, the way Aung San Suu Kyi did it. We will see more of this coming soon. Cypress was quite famous for providing MAGIC boxes that broke the HDCP key and forwarded the content to Component. We have news they still do but to SPECIAL customers.
