I'm building out a little home theater in my basement. I've already got a pretty nice TV/two channel stereo system in my living room, with an Oppo BDP-95, Ayre preamplifier and amplifier and Vandersteen Quatros, so this isn't going to rival that. Instead, I've got an Outlaw Audio 975 pre/pro down there so I don't need the sound processing abilities of the Oppo and in any event, I also have a Roku hooked into that system. I suppose I could go to an Oppo BDP-105 instead of the 975, but I don't want to go that route.
So sound and streaming doesn't matter only picture quality and ease of use (quick loading!).
We own an XBox 360 and I'm somewhat open to a PS3/PS4 or XBox One as a player. In a way, I'm less open to the XBox One since I'm annoyed by the lack of backwards compatibility (not that PS4 is better… a PS3 might almost be the unit I'd be most interested in of the gaming consoles).
Looking forward to your thoughts.
