Yeah, I hate to say it, but I do too, even on blu-ray. It's very close, and I'm not willing to make a stand the
way I am on SD-DVD and say it's objectively true that the 83 is better than the 103 on HDMI 2, but when I
A/B I do see a slight difference, and to my taste, it goes to the 83. Interesting that Jeff feels the same way.
I think his eye is pretty amazing.
At this point, I'm mostly using the 103 for streaming, and discs when it's not stuff where I really care
about the very best PQ (e.g. TV shows) thus saving wear on the 83.
I am and will continue to be an Oppo fan. They have made videophile level products available
for those of us who couldn't afford to spend $1000s on a player. They have great and responsive
customer support. I'll continue to buy their products, recommend them to others and try new ones.
But I am a bit disappointed in how the 103 has turned out (so far).
