It just depends on my mood as to which I use. I've had the 2930 since it came out and by the time I picked up the Oppo, well, it just wasn't worth my time trying to sell it so I bought another shelf instead
Well, I gave up on the 3930 because the laser in it died 3 times. Denon (they have to know it's a defective design) raped me (hundreds of dollars and a 2 month turnaround) the first time I had it repaired. The second time I fixed it myself, the third time I repaired it then Craig Listed it because it wasn't worth the hassle.
When I had my BDP-83 fixed for the ubiquitous loader problem they did it free with a 1 day turnaround. Out of warranty.
Oppo is a great company and has won my loyalty because they stood behind their product. If only they would up their game a bit with DVD upscaling in their next player so it was as pretty as the 3930, or as a dream even better I'd be a very happy camper. I will probably buy it when it comes out in any case just to have an up to date player.
Denon makes nice gear. The 3930 was a sweet DVD player. But I won't buy a Denon player again because their support can't hold a candle to Oppo.
