I 'm concerned about the loss of Darbee for regular Blu Rays.
I didn't try them side-by-side, but I think that blu-rays have so far looked fantastic on my 203 (I early ordered in December). I gave my 103D to my daughter for her home, because even though I liked and used the Darbee processing (I could see the differences using the test mode on the player), playing blu-rays on the 203 is so good I won't really miss it. Plus, that allowed me to keep the 83 in my setup, and it really does have things it will play that are no longer acceptable on current players (like BD-formatted DVD-Rs, which I used for archiving 1080P camera footage).
Now if at a later date, there is such a thing as 4K Darbee, and it makes a noticeable positive difference, then I might reconsider it then...
