I have never owned an Oppo, with my PS3 doing a fine HD bluray presentation until now and a Panasonic mid level player from a couple years ago for when I have a 3d disc. I upgraded from a great RS 4810 JVC projector to a really fine RS500 PJ this year and am displaying on 8.5' wide 16x9 old school 2.8 Hi Power screen, perfectly situated for high lumens viewing above the projector, below the projector and alongside the projector. Am forgetting the guy's name now but from someone's information a few months back, I have an industry recognized projector calibrator right here in town with me. At some point this next year, the already great out of the box color performance from Zombie10K's settings in the +$3,500 projector forum, will be made to be the best they can be with a calibration for both Rec 709 and HDR. The Hi Power lumens coming back will lend themselves well to the amazing on / off CR of this projector and quite decent ansi contrast ..... toward HDR performance.
So, I skipped the early adopter releases from Samsung and Panasonic HDR capable UHD bluray players..... and all the bugs and new settings needed to be worked through. Waiting on the now approaching time frame for the new UHD Oppo. Without reading all the pages here and just skimming through the front page..... I say hell yeah .....give me the HDR capability to pair with that Hi Power screen and UHD input capabilities into the new Oppo player and certainly streaming through it programming ..... all with the Oppos's processing enhancements. One of these I don't see listed on the sticky front page specs and information as requested by people here is Darbee UHD processing for any UHD input run through the new Oppo player. It HAS to have been mentioned I am sure. UHD Darbee processing will rock. Have there been any rumors or discussion of it in this thread of Darbee continuing their relationship with Oppo into the new UHD players?
