Best black levels
I am a long-time reader, first-time poster. Lately I have been looking for a new BDP. I have a Pioneer Elite 950HD with no plans to go 4K. For awhile, I've been using an old Samsung D5500. It's hardly state-of-the-art, but I was pleased with the black levels. Then just recently I tried the Cambridge CXU. In many ways it's wonderful. However, the black levels seem quite poor to me. Most dark scenes are just washed out.
So now I'm not sure how to proceed. Can anyone recommend a good player? I've been curious about the Arcam 411, but that is difficult to find, and supposedly it's built on the same platform as the CXU. How about something lower budget, like the Sony UHP-HI?
