OPPO Digital to cease development of new products

OPPO Digital has announced that it is to stop developing and manufacturing new products, with the UK subsidiary set to close once its stocks are depleted.

Established 14 years ago in the United States, OPPO Digital produced Hi-Fi audio products and universal disc players, spanning three generations from DVD, Blu-ray, to 4K UHD.

In a statement, the company said it was ‘proud to have made such well-regarded products and to have served the enthusiast community’.

Existing products will continue to be supported, the company added, warranties will still be valid, and both in-warranty and out-of-warranty repair services will continue to be available.

OPPO Digital UK will continue to trade while stocks last. However it expects to close its doors in the summer. Technical support, warranty claims, servicing and spares will in future be handled by a third party, with details to follow.

OPPO Digital UK managing director Nigel Rich commented: “We can be very proud of our achievements over the past few years. Along with market leading products, we have provided first rate customer service and support from our offices here in Norwich. I am very proud of our staff and very sad that we will now be closing our doors for good.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our European distributors, retailers and, of course most importantly, the people that have purchased OPPO products in Europe. We will continue to support products in and out of warranty and we have made provisions to continue this high level of service.”
