Daily Blog – Brian Florian – April 16, 2008: NEW FIRMWARE FOR OPPO DV-983H.

In case you missed it last week, Oppo Digital posted the first post-launch firmware update for the exquisite 983 DVD player. It came to my attention only because on the weekend in the middle of two movies the audio started dropping out.  Turns out that was happening with certain AVRs when the 983 was in 1080p mode.  Fixed!

Also addressed is the much talked about bass management limitation with DVD-A material.  Comprehensive BM now works with multi-channel 96kHz DVDA material, though why people continue to cling to analogue multi-channel I/O is beyond me.

Regardless, bravo Oppo for staying on top of things.
