Finally ready to pull the trigger on an UHD player, thought it would for sure be the Oppo, but second-guessing at this point. Have been reading (at least skimming) the threads for the various players, and disappointed to still see so many minor issues.
Samsung was never an option, and not the Panasonic due to disappointment in how long a previous Pannasonic DVD player lasted for me (not long) plus the price. Was set on the Oppo, but now there;s the Sony X800. Haven't found a X800 vs. 203 thread, but somebody here must be able to comment on the two? Sony seems to have it's share of glitches as well. But both Oppo and Sony get high marks for build quality.
Current TV set does not do DV, doubt Sony will ever offer an update for it, Sony is already disappointment in this area for the X930D afa the OS, but assume any later TV I get will be DV compatible, so might as well get a player that can do DV - the Oppo seems more promising to possibly add that feature....?? The analog audio outs on the Oppo aren't important for my arrangement. My other only concern (and not a huuuuge one...) is with streaming - no apps on the Oppo, which originally was non-issue since TV had them - but I use ARC, and correct me if I'm wrong, but ARC will not support Atmos, etc. - so it'd be nice to have capability to stream through a device that will handle this directly. Netflix honestly is the only app I care about at this point in this regard.
What else should I perhaps be considering, and any direct comparison experiences shared would be most appreciated, thanks guys!
