You can still get the UPD-203 on the OPPO website for $549 but I doubt that will last long. The UPD-205 units are not currently offered on their site but they are going for scalper prices on Ebay already (as are the older UPD-105D units).

They had a great brand with quality innards. Too bad so few people appreciate quality any more.

I went for another UPD-203. Thanks for the heads up.

Apparently it may be possible to get the audiophile reference player one final time NOT at scalper prices. You can sign up to be notified for one final production run if and when it happens. Scheduled to be released this July.

Yes I signed up for that in the event that they do. I want to be one of the scalpers :)

Lee the Oppo DV-983H was the last and top of the line standard def DVD player they made I believe. It is a really good audio player, if you do not care about video BluRay or 4K then it is a keeper.

They always improve the audio DACs as time progresses so I would expect the newer players have improved on that in a small way.

As a CD player is it that much better than the 938?
Not that you are going to notice on straight redbox (off the shelf) CD’s. Where the new DAC’s shine is on higher resolution recordings. My XRCD’s and Hybrid SACD’s jumped up in a big way switching from the old Denon SACD/DVD player I was using. Where it really excels is if you buy a high resolution streamer and subscribe to Tidal of one of the likes and run it through the Oppo’s DAC’s. MQA files and DSD files just shine through this thing. I don’t have a streamer for mine yet, but heard one setup this way in a store demo. But for straight CD’s, yours is tits!!!

$2500 is just jackals, sorry. You can buy a decent used motorcycle up to 750cc on Craigslist for that. I could buy a 1938 Plymouth with Ford suspension and no engine for $1900...or a beat up '55 Dodge with a 270 for half that.
