I think yes. It seems you are privileged if you have a small display, option for an audiophile power cord and a decent stereo analogue out. This is the reason why I bought X1000 last year. Now, after 18 months Dolby Vision is added and Bravia synch too and.... They make me laugh. These had to be implemented since the beginning, I mean DV, like Panasonic... Shame on the person who decided this approach.
A friend of mine called me a few weeks ago and told me he wants to replace Oppo 105D. Wow. Difficult mission. The local dealer borrowed us Panasonic 9000 and Pioneer LX800. I come with Sony. Panasonic was the clear winner of the video section, very very closed followed by Pioneer. Sony on the 3rd position, but still on that e podium. For audio Panasonic and Pioneer changed the positions, followed by Oppo and last one Sony. In the final, he kept Pioneer. We have to respect his decision. IMO.
I like the video processing of X1000. Do not need DV, because my OLED does not know <<who is Mister DV>>. Actual TVs are not 3D, so my next step is a projector and a new universal player. Which ones?. Do not know yet. I will be on the same situation as my friend. Till then, X1000 is very good for me - movies and concerts, BD ones. For music, analogue out is not a big concern - I am listening analogue music via turntable. However, it is a week point and the next player will have a better analogue out versus X1000, like LX 800 for example. Thanks.
