Since I'm building my 'retirement' home theater system (including Philharmonic 3 speakers, a Denon 4520ci, etc) I've been looking at all our equipment.  I looked at DVD audio and SACD since coming on the forum but my BD player doesn't support it.  I have a Samsung BD-E5900 that I got because it was the same brand as our new 3d TV we got about a year ago.  I didn't do much research - it was relatively inexpensive and I wanted to start playing 3d Blu-rays quick.

 

Now that I'm doing all the research, I'm looking at that player.  Just how much of a difference does the blu-ray player make?

 

Would I benefit from getting an Oppo-103?  Looks like the Oppo-105 offers better Dacs - worth double the price?  What about the Darbee option on both?

 

TIA,

Tony

All players should produce very similar images for Blu-ray.

What's your audio setup? The player DACs matter only if you are using analog output. Not used for HDMI.

That's a big topic. Darbee is a subtle effect when used properly. See the links in the first post of the BDP-103D thread for reviews.

My audio setup isn't setup yet.  The Phil 3's will be teamed with a Philharmonitor center with amp/processing from the Denon 4520ci and hooked up HDMI (unless analog has some advantage).  I'll look up the 103D reviews.
