E-Gear Declares the DV-981H Player to Be One of the Year's Best

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - OPPO Digital (www.oppodigital.com), a renowned leader in up-converting DVD players, today announced that E-Gear magazine has picked the OPPO DV-981HD up-converting DVD player for its Editors' Choice Top 40 Award. E-Gear's editorial team selected the top 40 products of 2007, out of the hundreds of products reviewed over the year.

This award follows in an extensive list of industry accolades for the DV-981HD, including honors by Perfect Vision, Electronic House, Absolute Sound, SoundStage AV, and Secrets of Home Theatre and High Fidelity.

OPPO's top-rated DV-981HD makes standard DVDs look their best on high definition televisions, enabling home theater enthusiasts to breathe new life into their extensive DVD library (especially as the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD battle rages on). The player supports 480p/576p, 720p, 1080i and even true HD 1080p output resolutions. OPPO uses the latest DCDi® video processor from Faroudja to perform deinterlacing and noise reduction.

In addition to its video performance features, the DV-981HD offers support for high fidelity digital audio in Super Audio CD (SACD) and DVD Audio formats to give audio enthusiasts a richer sound compared with conventional CDs. The player is also compatible with all DivX formats, Kodak picture CDs, MP3 files, and Windows Media Audio (WMA).

"OPPO is honored that E-Gear recognized the DV-981HD with an Editors' Choice Top 40 Award," said Jason Liao, vice-president of product development at OPPO Digital. "With each generation of up-converting players, OPPO's goal is to exceed the industry's expectations in terms of performance, quality, versatility, and affordability -- ensuring that home theatre enthusiasts everywhere can make the most of their video and audio experience, without breaking the bank."

The award-winning DV-981HD is available today at an estimated retail price of $229 and can be ordered directly from OPPO Digital's web site http://www.oppodigital.com/ or through an authorized reseller.
