You are right the player is doing something that makes most on here prefer its PQ and a few are just trying to understand the science behind what is it doing to achieve the PQ that most like.
I personally want my transports to put out as close to a reference picture as possible.
Unfortunately, this may not be appealing to some, which is ok.
I have the following transports in my main home theater setup. An Oppo BDP-95, a Sony BDP-S5000ES, a Pioneer BDP-51FD and a Denon DVD-5910CI. I also have an Oppo BDP-93 and now the Sony BDP-S790 in my bedroom and 2 Pioneer BDP-320s one in my keeping room and one in my family room. Yeah I know I have a few transports, but I just wanted to make sure that everyone knows there is no bias here.
I am actually constructing (1 year to 18 month project) a home theater in an unfinished room in my basement which I am really excited about. 4K has prompted me to do this like I needed a reason.
I know you've been asking me to do a comparison, but there is no room for the Sony in my main setup. What I have in my main setup works for me and while the S790 puts out a competent picture I have seen nothing that would warrant me swapping it in and it would look out of place based on what is currently in the setup.
