Well, I am debating between the Oppo 93 and the Panasonic BD-85.
I currently have a Panasonic BD30 blu ray player that I am extremely happy with. But since we moved my sons PS3 to the theater, we lost our BD player we use upstairs, so I am thinking of moving the BD30 upstairs and replacing it with either the Oppo or the Panny 85.
To give you an idea of our set-up:
JVC RS2 projector
58X104 Da-Lite HCCV screen with masking
Outlaw 770 amp (200x7)
Rocket speakers all the way around, 850's in the front
SVS Ultra/2 subwoofer
I just got my e-mail offering the early buy on the pre-production release of the Oppo.
My question is, I am wondering what benefit there is to rush in on the 93?
From what I can tell they are not offering any sort of 'deal' to be an early adaptor guinea pig on the 93. I see everyone jumping on the bandwagon to be an early adaptor.
What am I missing? Is there some sort of rebate that Oppo is offering to those early adaptors?
I am thinking I may hold off and wait. Besides, I am wondering if I'll see any real difference between the 85 and the Oppo.
In order to give OPPO customers the best possible video and audio experience, we continue to work diligently on developing the new BDP-93 player.
As we ready the BDP-93 for public release, there is still some work left to be done. The firmware that will be installed on your BDP-93 is a pre-release version - further refinement, tweaking, and bug fixing are still in development. You can also expect additional features, which includes streaming services from various providers, to be added throughout the player's lifecycle. The firmware can be upgraded via the internet, USB, or CD. When you receive your BDP-93, please send any feedback and comments...
