GoodSound! Raves About OPPO DV-980H

DV-980H Honored With "GoodSound! Great Buy"; OPPO Digital Dominates Budget A/V Market

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - OPPO Digital (www.oppodigital.com), a renowned leader in up-converting DVD players, today announced that the DV-980H up-converting player was named "Great Buy" by GoodSound!, a leading resource for affordable high-end audio equipment. In the review, GoodSound! declared that OPPO dominates the budget A/V market: "This California-based company seemingly stuffs every bell and whistle into its sleek CD/DVD/SACD players, including advanced audio and video options, and then charges a pittance for it all."

Like OPPO's DV-981HD, the DV-980H has progressive-scan capabilities and up-converts standard-definition DVD all the way up to 1080p. Catering to its audiophile audience, GoodSound! extensively reviewed the player's audio capabilities. The player supports high-resolution, multi-channel audio formats -- including Super Audio CD (SACD) and DVD-Audio (DVD-A). And the DV-980H is one of the few universal players that can output the DSD data via HDMI for conversion by a compatible A/V receiver or processor.

According to Marc Mickelson, GoodSound! Editor, "First and foremost, the DV-980H is a sane digital player, one that you don't have to apply for a loan to buy. On top of this is its rich set of features, including playback of every digital disc short of the high-definition video formats, and high-quality sound... GoodSound! has covered a number of Great Buys this year, but I'm not sure that any is greater than the DV-980H. The OPPO team has done it again."

"GoodSound! is known throughout the industry for finding the best deals for its readers," said Jason Liao, vice-president of product development at OPPO Digital. "We're proud that they continue to recognize our products with this latest recommendation for the DV-980H."

The award-winning DV-980H is available today at an estimated retail price of $169 and can be ordered directly from OPPO Digital's web site http://www.oppodigital.com or through an authorized reseller.
