Oppo to cease production -- Announced yesterday...

Sad day for those of us who loved Oppo for their high quality products that supported SACD, DVD-Audio, as well as Blu-ray and UHD Blu-ray formats.  Oppo has also been loved for its industry leading level of customer support.  Oh, well, at least my DV-980H, BDP-83, and UDP-203 are all still going strong!

Here-here, "the proof is in the pudding" when speaking of vinyl and higher end audio gear and it was very hard to go back once I had experienced it.

OPPO is a prime example of a high end video/audio company that has set the bar very high, and quite frankly their gear would be be sorely missed from my system.

This is a sad day indeed.

Hi end is not dead, I see "kids" upgrading all the time on the vinyl forums. 

$200 system beats out 40K plus? Bwhahahahahah!!!!!!! Couldn't beat out my modest 18K system. LOL
I don't get streaming. My nephew does that he being an IT guy so he knows what he is doing and too me it does not sound all that good. My turntable and BD player puts any streaming I have ever heard to shame and my hearing is not all that good but I can easily discern quality. Had too get a 203 as they were out of the 205. Right now I use a Marantz 7007. I yes I think something is fishy about this whole affair. The best player on the market and they quit making them and sold out in a few day's ?
Highend is dying. Younger folks want portable and not sitting in one spot. They spend more on gaming. Audio that was our thing. You can see by marketing of high end gear, most market towards the 5% of income. There is a reason no much sales in the middle class who have other needs like raising kids, and education. Most audio shows I go to have a lot of gray hair folks. Not saying some younger folks won’t get into the hobby but never the amount of us boomers where cars and audio was the thing. Streaming tracks now is the thing and in the billions, a whole album no where near as much and vinyl is a spec in total sales.
