It's $739 Canadian dollars plus $25 for UPS overnight (I'm in Ottawa) but I guess you are including the taxes on that price? It was either the Oppo or the Panny 900 for $40 less which is limited to...

Question for you owners: If I throw some 720p mkv files on a USB stick and play them back on the UDP203, are they able to be upscaled to 4K using the player's upscaling hardware?

It would have been different had the price of the Sony been less (as I think it should be) and then I could have gotten a 75" Z9D, but for $12,000 plus warranty plus taxes we are almost up to $15,000...

When the settings are dialed in properly, you may experience slight crosstalk on some titles but far more accurate color and quite a bit sharper picture. I always felt like the passive 3D on my E6 LG...
