New Oppo BD-83SE and Nuforce Edition. - Page 3

post #31 of 69
The Rick in avsforum got this and posted his impression. In short, he wasn't impressed, but that wasn't Nuforce edition, and one man's impression.

Shortly, it'll be flooded with many impressions, some of which are hyped up comments and some are real honest opinions. The question is, which one do you want to believe? :-)

Ric is a mod. He has his own company, and does mods for the Oppos and other makes.

As of right now, there is only two first impressions of the BD-83SE and both are comparing the stock BD-83 to the stock BD-83SE.

Any mod impressions will come later. The first mod impression will be on the BD-83SE Nuforce Edition.
Both Oppo and Nuforce sold out very quickly of there stock.
Why I say Nuforce's stock is because like Oppo, Nuforce does there mod edition in there factory, probably 100 at at time. And Nuforce has had accsess to the design of the Oppo BD-83SE and has do some work with Oppo on the new BD-83SE.
The BD-83SE Nuforce Edition will start shipping out later this week.

I wonder if there is a way to DIY some balanced XLRs on the Oppo.

For those who have any version of the Oppo 83: how is the CD tray?
Better than those in Oppo's previous models?
Or still flimsy?

I had my BDP-83SE NuForce Edition now for about 12 days.

It takes about 70 to 100 hours of break-in.

Yes the BD-83SE/NE does a very nice job for MC analog playback. But were it really excels is with its 8-channel Sabre32 Ultra (ES9016) DAC chip by stacking 4 DACs for each of the Left and Right channels to achieve even greater audio performance.
Also if you use your BD-83SE/NE for your 2ch headphone amp and headphones you are in for a real treat for your personal listening of Blu Ray movies also. These new upgrades for the BD-83 with its wonderful 7.1/5.1 stereo 2ch analog downmix using its discreet 2ch out are excellent.

There are several reviews over at AVS for the BD-83SE/NE.

I use a Woo WA6SE maxxed (circa 1963 RCA 6ew7 nos big bottle and a circa 2005 EML 274B solid plate nos ) and a pair of Senn HD-800s, with my BD-83 NE.

Yes it is a board swap. ribbon cable and power.
How ever the power board has been upgraded also from the BD-83 to the SE/NE. So you will also have to have the upgraded power board and use the firmware for the SE/NE

Thanks -- does that mean it is still flimsy and of higher quality, or not flimsy and of higher quality?

It's a good quality plastic tray, not flimsy in any way. Very much like the Phillips drive in my MH25.2 and much better quality than the DVD in my recent HP desktop.

Just read a review on the BD-83NE from somebody in Sweden.

Not as well built as a Marantz CD-10, you could use the tray as a spring board into a swimming pool.

The BD-83 doesn't flex like their older $200 model dvd players; it is solid. I can't say what the quality of a Marantz player but they have addressed what I've felt is a pretty big design tradeoff with the Oppo line.
