I have been running a Panasonic BDt-500 for the past few weeks. I like the picture, but there is a high percentage of disk which freeze and lock up. I am assuming this is just a faulty unit and I plan on sending back to Amazon.
Before I order another Panny, I was thinking up going with an Oppo 93.
My main interest from the unit is the quality of the blu-ray and 3d blu ray. I am not that much into music so I think some of the advance features of the Oppo do not matter to me.
My question is is the Oppo a better player for movies than the Panny 500? The other question I have is I have a Sharp 70LE847 and a Yamaha Rx-A3000. They all can process video. So if I go with the Oppo would I have the Oppo process the video? Currently I have the Sharp processing the video.
Thanks for you assistance
PS: Also is the new Oppo-103 worth waiting for if I go the Opp route. (feature wise and quality)
