Sony has a new universal that is avail at Best Buy & Crutchfield for openers. Oppo is over-rated IMO.
In what way is Oppo overrated? I have a 103 that plays BluRays as well as any other player (they are all basically equivalent), does a good job upsampling DVDs, plays SACDs and DVD-A discs, delivers flawless audio to my AVR over HDMI from every source including DSD files streamed wirelessly from a PC in another room, and has an excellent DAC and flexible bass management settings if I want to use the analog outputs.
It is overpriced if all you want is good BluRay video--for that, save several hundred bucks and get a mass-market player.
I bought Oppo 103 soon took it back for a refund, for BD,PQ & SQ very inferior to Sony 1000ES/BDP 760 UK, The forthcoming Sony X800 will be IMO a best buy.
which I do through a preamp. Such a versatile machine. I hope they never change them.
