OPPO Wins Product of the Year, Yet Again!

OPPO Digital's DV-970HD Declared Product of the Year by the Absolute Sound Magazine

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 19, 2006 -- OPPO Digital, Inc. (, an award-winning consumer electronics manufacturer, was presented a prestigious award by The Absolute Sound magazine. The OPPO DV-970HD up-converting player was victorious in being named the 2006 Product of the Year as a standalone product in the Budget category. Displaying an exceptional reputation of its own, the award-winning DV-970HD is available from OPPO Digital and OPPO authorized resellers for $149.00.

Editors from The Absolute Sound have selected several products that represent the finest of each component category reviewed that year, narrowing in on the best of the best.

Providing an excellent sound and video quality that is unmatched against various expensive DVD and CD players, the DV-970HD seizes the power of universal playback of CD, SACD, DVD-Audio and video up-converting. The DV-970HD converts standard DVDs to high-definition quality and allows you to stick with your DVD collection and experience all that HD has to offer at a fraction of the cost. The sound of the DV-970HD is characterized as "surprisingly good -- and not just 'for the money'" by the editors from The Absolute Sound.

"The bottom line is that the Oppo DV-970HD, imperfections and all, is by far the best low-priced universal player I’ve heard or seen," stated Chris Martens, audio editor for The Perfect Vision and senior writer for The Absolute Sound. "It does so much, so well, for so little, that it will make many higher-priced players seem like underachievers by comparison." *

"We were ecstatic to receive another Product of the Year award and are so pleased to know that OPPO products are being recognized by the audio and videophile community," stated Jason Liao, vice president of product development at OPPO Digital. "We are fortunate to have such devoted support from the user community. OPPO is willing to listen to their needs and keep improving our products to meet such needs."

OPPO's various products have received dazzling awards in multiple categories, such as The Perfect Vision Editor's Choice Award 2006, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity's Best of 2005, and's Top Pick in Standard and Upscaling DVD Players.

The DV-970HD provides hi-definition up-conversion at its finest, eliminating the need to decide on the confusing high-definition disc formats. High-quality pure digital video and audio can be delivered through a single HDMI cable. At the same time, discrete 5.1-channel, stereo, coaxial and digital audio outputs are offered for easy connection to your audio equipment. The package is complete with a 4-in-1 flash memory card reader and USB port for smooth and easy navigation of photo albums and music collections. What the OPPO DV-970HD offers is not just outstanding picture and sound, but an entertainment experience like none before, all in the comfort of your own home!
