LOL, great description.
I dont like much mucking, my plan is to run it out as 1080p/60 to my display, with only some Darbee love working. Im not a big fan of the other "enhancements", and I may not even use the Darbee all the time (nice to have the option built in though). One of the things that is nice about Oppo is they aim for reference, and achieve it. The 103 in stock mode is reference, you send it 720p or 1080i into the HDMI in, it can output either at 1080p/60 and pass the tests a display cant if you send it 720p/1080i straight. You just know they have a goal, and they deliver. It helps take one concern out of your chain.
