Can anyone comment on the video quality of dvds upsampled on the Oppo 93? I want to get a new universal blu-ray player, but I want to make sure I get one that plays back dvd-video with good quality.

I've read that the new Denon's do a really good job but they seem to be a lot more expensive than the Oppo players.

We just had a full ISF "Imaging Science Foundation" calibration done on the LG plasma yesterday.  The calibrator confirmed that the set does an excellent job for up-conversion so he didn't check the up-conversion quality of the Oppo BDP 93.  Too bad I didn't notice your post until after he left, he was here when you posted but I spent the day with him for the full calibration process and missed your post.

I do however believe that the Oppo 93 would be fine for up-conversion too from what I've read about it.

We may have him back for something else, maybe he could check it then, I'm sure he might be interested in knowing the up-conversion quality of it himself.

got my oppo 93 set up

fired up PS3 Media Server on my mac.

form the oppo, browsed my home network wirelessly and saw the PS3 server on the mac.  i'm currently streaming 24/96 flac files wirelessly to the oppo, then sending the 24/96 audio over hdmi to my pre/processor. 

i'm in heaven right now.

Nice.  I've been looking to dump my LG blu ray player for an Oppo...I really want the ability to play SACD and DVD-A's as I please.  Good to hear they have netflix streaming on this unit.  Does it have pandora or youtube?

Just to add to the list ,another one that does dvd-audio, same price as Oppo's BDP93.

Marantz UD5005 BD/DVD/SA-CD Universal Player

I have a Marantz UD7001, one of the preceding models, and it drops the sound and video for five seconds or so intermittently when playing DVDs.  It is maddening and happens around four or five times on every movie that I watch.  Now the transport mechanism is screwing up, not opening sometimes and refusing to recognize some brand new CDs.  I would never buy another Marantz again on the basis of this unit, especially considering it's only two years old.

It's unfortunate, as the unit sounds fantastic when it works properly and plays anything except for Blu-Ray, which is fine with me.  I'm going to replace it with a Cambridge Audio 751BD when it is released.  I have an Azur 840A integrated amplifier also by Cambridge and it is really awesome.  The 751BD is similar to the Oppo 95 but will integrate with the IA that I have so I don't have to screw around with multiple remotes and modes of operations and the like.
