The Oppo BDP-83SE is a "Special Edition" version of the Oppo BDP-83 Universal Blu player. For an extra $400 (yes, that almost doubles the price of the original) you get upgrades only a connoisseur could love.

This player should surely be a hit with the esoteric crowd. \n\n\nDiscuss "OPPO BDP-83SE Special Edition Blu-ray Disc Player First Look" here. Read the article.
