DVD player: Oppo 983/Toshiba A35, A2, XA1/Pioneer 410k
Display: Samsung HP-S5053 1366x768 Plasma
They are all nice players. I haven't done major comparisons between any of them. Just going off memory after running each player for a short period of time. (Atleast a couple weeks, minus the Pioneer, it was a gift to my Dad. Just gave it a trial on my setup.)
The A2, XA1 and Pioneer are pretty much equal on my setup. The A35 was slightly better. Better colors, just a picture I prefer over the XA1, A2, Pioneer. Slightly sharper. The Oppo is clearly better than all the others, as it should be! It isn't much sharper than the A35, just a little. However the picture is SO clean. It really is a pleasant picture. On the Toshiba's, it was hit or miss depending on every movie how the picture turned out. With the Oppo, most DVD's look nice, very few look bad. Many look incredible!
I really love the Oppo! I highly suggest it if you have a large collection of DVD's and can justify the cost... and a large enough screen to take advantage of it. Anything smaller than my 50" and I don't think it would be worth it.
