Lexicon BD-30 Blu-ray Player Review


It’s an Oppo BDP-83. Normally we’d launch into a statement like this with more tact. We may, for example, wax eloquent about the Lexicon BD-30’s beautiful chassis or it’s billet aluminum front face. We could tell you about the heft of the unit, or the fact that comes double boxed with enough padding to warrant throwing it off the FedEx or UPS truck while it’s still moving. While all of that is true, the Lexicon BD-30 is still an Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray Player. And what’s more, it’s not just using the same parts – they actually stuck the player inside – chassis and all. This would be OK, were it not for the $3000 premium and THX certification. As Sherlock Holmes would say: The game is afoot! MSRP: $3,500
