The 7/64 combo works very well together huh? They have an excellent look to them also, very classy.

Cool, I'll look into those.
I was looking at the Samsung bd-6500 but I have no idea. Never bought one before.
The elite pioneer and denons are pricey lol
I have the Samsung h5900 (black Friday for 60 or 70) and am very happy with it. The apps work well, And I've had no issues with playback. A couple quirky issues with turning it on and off, but overall a great investment

Ok awesome. I think I'll either get that one or the 6500.

Big fan of the Oppo BDP 103. It's so solid--every other disc player lately feels like a toy in comparison. I've had a bunch of Samsung players and they've all fallen down after a couple years of gentle use. And it upscales DVDs beautifully, prolonging the life of my collection.

Well question is if Oppo really improve picture quality over let say PS4 or any $200 BD player or it will do same job but you are buying well build piece of equiptment what will last longer and it is what you pay for.

I second this. I went from a rx-v567 to a avr-x2100. It was a very good upgrade. The Denon just sounds better.

If you are near the Houston, TX area, I have some 62's sitting in my office waiting for a buyer. PM me if interested.
Not true. Klipsch was producing the Synergy series and the Icon series at the sametime. Both were discontinued in 2014. I had the Synergy series and I liked them a lot. I would still have them if I did not have one hell of a deal come my way on some Ref II speakers.

I agree synergy was good, F30s anyway. The difference from f30 to rf82ii is nowhere near as noticable as the difference between rf82ii and my new to me rf83. I wouldnt bother with the center or surrounds but the big towers are ok.

Sorry, I was wrong on the dates, but it's a moot point non the less, as they're discontinued.

I seriously doubt that it improves Blu-ray picture quality by anything noticable, but I would argue that it would do a better job of upscaling content to HD.

Well, looks like a stand corrected again - you can still purchase the Synergy line from Klipsch.com. They are priced a little higher than they were when they were for sale in brick and mortar stores, but if that's really what you want. The F-30's were a pretty decent speaker, and had a lot more heft than the other speakers in the line.

This is probably the wrong forum, but I did do A/B testing of DVD upscaling when I got the Oppo, and I found it to be a significant improvement.

PS4 is not setup as well as the PS3 to be a player, but the PQ is fine. What you find on some models still is they fail some basic spears and munsil tests, especially chroma stuff. Kinda ridiculous. What you get from the Oppo is something that is supported year in year out, longer warranty, darbee processing and a quality video processor if you want one. I run my tivo and hopper into the 103D, and then one cable to 4520, and one cable to display. 103D handles everything.

If you just want to watch blu-ray and stream, maybe some DVD, just buy a $100 Sony. Sony players are accurate in the right modes, where as newer Panny's and Samsungs have some issues.

Not sure about the RF83 but as a owner of the F30 & stepping up to the RF-82 II is light years better.....
