Looking for a good Upconverting DVD player

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I just bought a 46" Aquos 46D62U and decided that I need a DVD player that would complement the TV.

I need it to do the following:
1. Upconvert 480p to 1080i/720p and does it well.
2. Play any content I can throw at it. That includes DVD-A, DivX, xDiv, etc. Can handle most DVDRs
3. Prefebly HDMI output and digital audio output, coax, optical etc.
4. Great Image quality/sound
5. USB slot in front would be a great bonus ( pics, video, mp3)
6. Don't care for the remote quality as I am going to use it with a Harmony 880.
7. Don't care for multi-region support as I only watch US/Canada DVDs.

price is not much of an object but willing to pay extra for a really good product.

I live in Toronto, so I was hoping for a local dealer but I am willing to buy online.

Any recommendations are welcome.

Thanks for responding.

Why does it have to upconvert? What does your LCD do differenly to 480p than a DVD player? Just about all players sold now will upconvert so it's kinda hard to buy a 480p only player.

Cause I want it to... + all the other goodies I listed.
I've heard the oppo DVDs are great players. Any recommendations of a particular model?

Thanks

there are separate thread dedicated to each model. check the first page of the thread for the summary. Using search, I'll bet you can find the recent thread that compared the 970 to the 981 ;-)

jeff, thanks for the quick reply. Crap, there are so many threads. I can't find the comparison you're referring to.

the 970 looks great but I'd love to have the USB port on the 981 as my TV does support 1080p.

Can I get what I want?
