I'll take my Sony BDP-S1000ES over the Oppo 93 based on my needs in my home theater system for 1/5 the price any day. And my Sony plays any and all seamless branching/dolby truehd titles bitstreamed to my Yamaha RX-V3900 just fine.
I'm sure that the Sony player you mention is fine until one wants to listen to a SACD or DVD-Audio disc, at which point you're out of luck. Point being that people have different requirements in what they want/need in a player and the extra cost of the Oppo is obviously worth it to many people. YMMV.

Are you connecting the analogue outs of the Oppo BDP-93 into the Arcam AV8?
I'm going to a dealer's open day next weekend to see/hear the DDRC88A, so that's likely my next purchase to put on the output terminals of the AV8. I don't see me buying an Atmos/DTS:X processor until at least next year as I'm remodeling my room then, so I won't be able to fit height speakers until then anyway.

I did connect the analogue outputs of the '93 to the AV8 but there is too much delay in the video chain (Lumagen 2041 and JVC X500) so the sound is out of sync. So now I'm just using the coax output of the '93 into the AV8 which then allows me to use the audio delay function in the AV8. I still think this sounds better than the 818 did using HD sound decoding, so it's no hardship to wait a while longer.

Zooming: Been there, done that, bought the lens...now using e-shift.

I agree with you 100%, which is why I qualified the post you responded to with "if you are running your player via HDMI for Video/Audio for blu-ray playback".

A long-time audio/video addict!

After perusing the forum on the BDP-93, i now see that from my iMac/macbook pro world, I will need to format the hard drive of no greater than 2TB to Fat32 and simply load my mkv files created by Bytecopy software and all will be well. What I don't see is if it is possible in this set up to daisy chain 2 or 3 of the 2TB drives with success. Also, is there anything else required for the OPPO BDP 93 to access the files?

Yes, the Oppo can see up to 8 drives simultaneously.

I have 8 x 2TB hard drives hooked up to my Oppo at any one time.

4 drives in a Mediasonic Probox and another 4 drives in a docking station (makes it easier to swap drives as I currently have 11 x 2TB drives with just movies).


Max

P.S. using a Windows setup, my drives are all formatted in NTFS

Thanks for the help, djbluemax1. Wow, 22TB ! Doubt I will get there, but those Blu-Rays do eat up the space.
