Renowned for producing some of the best Blu-ray players ever made, oppo has finally launched their first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player - and it includes all the features that aficionados have been waiting for.
From the product breakdown published by the company this week, the UDP-203 is a behemoth, including the following features:
- Full compatibility with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, AVCHD, SACD and CD
- Firmware upgradeable to support Dolby Vision video output (first confirmed player to do so)
- Twin HDMI outputs for separate video and audio connections
- Twin USB 3.0 media ports, supporting a wide range of audio and video codecs
- High resolution audio with lossless decoding for PCM and DSD
- 7.1ch analog audio outputs
While the company is promising an even higher-end unit in the coming year, on paper their first player looks to be the one to beat. If you're in the US you can order a unit from here, while other locales will launch in the coming months. We can't wait to get our hands-on one!
