(Apologies if there is an existing thread for this - searching for "Amazon" or "universal" yields a lot of hits but I can't see a thread specifically for this.)

I'm about to jump into the 3D game and will be looking for a 3D capable BD player. One of the things that I enjoy about my current Sony BD player is that it does Amazon streaming video. I don't use it a lot, but with a Prime membership it's definitely nice to have access to. I'm also planning to replace an older SACD/DVD-A unit and basically consolidate disc playback into one device. (I also have an Apple TV that I use for Netflix and streaming my music from iTunes - would be nice if all the streaming could be there but of course Apple's never going to support Amazon.) However, none of the universal players I am finding from Oppo, Denon, Cambridge etc. seem to have Amazon video. It looks like the best answer is an Oppo BD-103 with the Roku MHL connected stick. That's not a bad solution but I want to be sure I cover my bases, as this will be a big purchase planned to keep long term.

I see Amazon's list of devices, and the only BD players listed are from LG, Panasonic, Sony and Vizio - so I think that's probably the answer to this.

HT: Sony VPL-HW55ES, Screen Innovations 110" motorized Black Diamond, Samsung PN51F8500, Mirage OMD-28/OMD-C2, Revel W873 x 4 surrounds, Revel C763L x 4 heights, Hsu VTF-15 x 2, Anthem AVM-60, NHT Power5 / Marantz MM8003, Denon DBT-1713UD, DirecTV HR-34 Genie

2 channel: Martin Logan Summit X, Krell S550i, PS Audio DirectStream DAC, Oppo BDP-105D, Mac Mini with JRiver Media Center

Mods ask that questions be directed to the Help Me Choose thread. The Oppo supports MHL so you could add a ROKU stick for $49.
