I searched the thread and didn't find an answer.
Question: If I get the Onkyo SR805 receiver, is there any benefit or reason to also get an Oppo or other up-converting DVD player? From my understanding, the Oppo is the best up-converting player out there in the $200 price range, yet it uses DCDi for upconversion and the 805 also uses DCDi upconversion. So either way, the quality is more or less the same, right?
I currently have an Onkyo SP-501 DVD player that does 480P output. I'll be using a 720P projector so I'd like to get the best picture possible to the projector in a single HDMI cable. Should I just keep my 501 and connect it via component to the 805, and have it upconvert to 720P, and in the future 1080p, and output via HDMI?
Can the 805 do this?
Would I benefit by using an Oppo DVD player instead of the 501?
