yeah, I listed my brand-new, original release firmware (never-opened), BDP-83 on eBay yesterday, it sold for maximum price (no-bid) in two hours ($400.00)! So I purchased a BDP-103, which I just received today.
The BDP-103 unit will swap with my BDP-93 I'm using in my living-room system, consisting of- Denon AVR-2112CI receiver; Samsung 42in LED 3D SMART TV; Energy RC-Series speakers (RC-30 fronts, RC-LCR center; RC-R rears). This way I can take advantage of 3D TV functionality, as well as provide additional apps (NetFlix, Hulu, Pandora).
The BDP-93 unit will move into my (simple) bedroom system, consisting of- NAD C163 pre-amp/C272 amp; Samsung 32inch LED flat screen; Scientific Atlanta SA8300 cable box; Energy Veritas V-Mini speakers (wall-mounted). I plan to pipe 2ch OUT's from BDP-93 and SA8300 to C163 pre-amp 2ch INP's. This way I can: play CD, SACD and DVD-A music sources in the BDP-93 with 2ch analog playback; play BD and SD-DVD movie sources in the BDP-93 with 2ch down-mixed decoded surround; stream WMA archive music files from my external drive; stream movies from NetFlix with down-mixed decoded surround. I will probably have to add a sub into the mix later (integrated to the C163 pre-amp). My wife really wanted NetFlix streaming capability in the bedroom system, the BDP-83 did'nt have NetFlix app.
Now I'm seriously considering selling my BDP-95 to upgrade to a BDP-105. I'm seeing brand-new, original firmware (region free, ISO), BDP-95's selling for $1199.95 on eBay. I figure I should be able to get nearly the same for my (brand-new, never opened) BDP-95. Once I physically install these players into my rack they will not be removed for a long while, that's why (at this point) I'd rather have the latest version (ie. BDP-105).
