I have seen reviews that seem to suggest that the dvd upscaled picture is of the highest quality, but it does not compare to the 83 at all. This is swithced through my Onkyo 3009 (in direct mode) and into my Panasonic 60GT50 in THX Theater mode.
Keep your Oppo 83 if you care about dvd picture quality. The 103 has full quality Blu ray picture quality and looks the same as the 83.......but Blu rays like Aliens load up like a Dvd compared to the wait loading on the 83...this is worth the upgrade just for that alone. The smooth disc drawer is very nice, the 103 remote is heavier than the 83's by a fair bit.
