I've generally found the opposite to be true. That is it takes a extremely good BR player(Oppo comes to mind) to equal a good upconverting DVD player.
Unless you plan on switching to BR in the near future it would be far cheaper to purchase a good Upconverting DVD player now and wait until you really need the BR player.
IMO the earlier BR players did a nicer job of upconverting DVDs, the newer ones seem to be saving money by concentrating more on BR playback than DVD. The conspiracy theorist in me says many BR mfgs. want to make DVDs look not so good so people will upgrade to BR discs but it's probably just cost cutting measures to get the players closer to the all mighty $99 PP
