As opposed to calling it an Oppo killer I would say it a much needed improvement over their previous model. I'm going to wait until it is in the hands of the people, before declaring it anything. The Oppo model for some is almost 18 months old so I would expect a little improvement from Marantz since their previous model didn't fair very well against the Oppo.
I may take one for a test drive, but I am more inclined to wait for Oppo's replacement of the BDP-83. Only time will tell as far as how well the Marantz and Denon's do this time around since they both kind of flubbed the previous model.
