    Here’s a think statement open for correction. Sony/Phillips has a play in this somewhere. Esoteric made transports for DCS and has stopped, and DCS snatched up a large lot to support it Vivaldi line.

    With Rossini coming out with a SACD, I think they now have switched to Denon?

    Regardless, if there’s demand, there’s options.

    I tell ya , if truth be known, these companies might build a unit out of parts from someone else, but I would bet Matsushita Electric Industrial Co (Panasonic) Teac, Hitachi-LG, Philips, Sony and Samsung makes the actual drive along with the laser hardware.

    TEAC must build for esoteric, no? They’re owned by the same company. Curious...

    I think there are Sony TV users who are waiting for Oppo implementation of the Sony-profile Dolby Vision via HDMI. The good news is that it's being tested:

    Re: Farewell to OPPO USA

    Wow, this is a shocker. I own 2 Oppos and they work flawlessly. It is no surprise to me that high-end companies use their transports, in some cases without modification. Of all the CD and SACD players I've tried over the years, Oppo players were the best at reading hard-to-read discs. Basically, if the Oppo couldn't read it, chances are no player could. This is disappointing news, no doubt.

    Re: Farewell to OPPO USA

    Oopps, I just posted in the other Oppo farewell thread. Oh well.
    ° http://www.audioshark.org/showthread...l=1#post235310
    ___

    I love music, all music, turntable music, hirez quality music recordings of the best in Classical, Jazz, Blues, International, the Work.

    I love movies, all movies, turntable movies, hi-def ultra quality movie presentations of the best in Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Action, Romance, Foreign, the World.

    Some Documentaries, Nature documentaries are sublime in ultra hi-def moving pictures and with ultra hirez moving music scores as accompaniment, 50/50. ...A feast for all the eyes and ears of children, women and men, in high emotional level...into the space of time and infinity.

    The universe won't be the same with Oppo slowly disappearing into the abyss of a black hole.
    Who's going to take over now; Japan, with Sony and Panasonic?
    I'd like to see them follow a similar pattern as Oppo. ...I have a dream.

    Farewell Oppo.

    Superb products. Quite frankly, I don't think they charged enough for them....

    I agree, they could charge more for the quality construction and features.
    But they are priced for love @ all levels/classes. And that's why the diy people they love to play with them, modify them to be the best, with top quality parts and power supply and best audio path.

    The 205 is incredible for only $1,300 ... No wonder the Oppo universal players rank among the best in Stereophile Recommended Components each and every year. ...Class A and A+ for performance/romance/value ratio. Anyone can afford them, love of movies and music @ best for sharing among the entire galaxy...young and old and everyone between.

    You play an Oppo player @ home you are a player in the world of audiophiles and videophiles, without borders, without walls, ...you are the elite of the elite in physics, in science and in spirit.
    It's hi-tek for the mind and soul. No emotions are restricted, anyone everyone can experience and share. There are no limits, no clashes, no races, ...only universal love.

    They are used on the entire planet by the planetarian community, Oppo is a global love affair with movies and music in all formats. There are no other companies like it, none.

    All of this makes it harder to see them depart.
