    Perhaps consider the 95 instead? The 83 series is known to have some tray issues. Oppo stands behind it but it's a hassle you could avoid.

    If I found one at a good price, I'd consider it. But from what I've seen, they run about double the price if the 83se

    For the $75 difference, I couldn't justify NOT buying it!

    Best 75 bucks spent
  • trav0810trav0810 Posts: 973
    Yes, for that price difference, it was a no-brainer.

    Well crap. I received the Oppo. The shipper has obviously never mailed an electronic item before. It was wrapped in a single layer of foam sheathing and shoved into a box that was as tight as a second skin. Hooked it up, it would not read a disc. Any kind of disc. So, now it is on its way back to the seller for a refund.

    Well, I have another one on the way now. This one had just been checked out and serviced by Oppo, so hopefully it will be packaged properly.

    Has anyone else here used their Oppo to play SACD-R?

    That was actually one of the reasons I purchased the Oppo. Its ability to play sacd r. At the cost of SACD'S, I prefer to make backup copies of them instead of playing the originals.

    What media are you using for this Travis? You have my curiosity peaked as to how you do this.
  • trav0810trav0810 Posts: 973
    DVD-R. It is done the same way as a DVD. You back it up as an ISO image to your computer then burn the iso image to a DVD-R
