Oppo 1080p DVD Player

Oppo on Thursday upgraded its DVD players with the DV-981HD. The 981 serves as a major revision of the company's earlier 971 and now supports upscaling DVDs to a full 1080p HD resolution, up from the 720p/1080i limits of the earlier model. The company says it has also adapted its output to reflect modern HDTVs: the component video of the 971 has been swapped with an HDMI port that can fully drive the 1080p signal as well as its accompanying surround sound. Oppo says the player retains a strong emphasis on audio with co-axial, optical, and RCA surround jacks as standard.

Multi-format playback support is broad and includes higher-end music discs such as DVD-Audio and SACD as well as DivX- and XviD-encoded video files; this extends even to subtitles and other computer-centric features of these files, Oppo states. The DV-981HD has just begun shipping for $230.
