This is the original BDP-83 that set off a firestorm. It practically plays anything – SACD, Blu-ray, DVD and CDs. And it does them all so well that it was difficult to find any shortcoming except its $500 price tag (which at that time, was fairly expensive when compared to other lesser players that offered a few more features). But if sound and video quality is at the top of your priority, the BDP-83 has few equals. Load time, especially on Blu-ray was fairly quick and smooth. So downtime is not an issue here.
Cosmetically, the player is nice shape with just some minor scuff marks here and there from use. Original remote is included and the manual can be found online. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
