OPPO Digital Farewell

OPPO Digital Ends Production, Support to be Phased Out

On April 2, 2018 OPPO Digital announced they will gradually stop manufacturing new products. The company says existing products will continue to be supported, warranties will still be valid, and both in-warranty and out-of-warranty repair services will continue to be available. In addition, firmware will continue to be maintained and updates released from time to time.

But make no mistake about it, this marks the end of the road for OPPO Digital after 14 years of making some of the best audio products and universal disc players in their class. The world has moved on, and despite their best efforts nobody is buying disc players anymore. Streaming now reigns supreme and consumers have no reason to buy an extra set-top box, when everything they need is either built into the TV or added on with an Amazon Fire TV Stick for as low as $30.

There’s no fire sale yet on the company website or Amazon yet. Everything is still regular price. Depending how much inventory remains, one might expect some deep discounts as the year winds down.

Frequently Asked Questions:

OPPO Digital has offered this FAQ to answer to questions that may arise from the announcement.
