Oppo is a brand I heard was good. Does their line's quality stay about the same or are there specific ones to hunt for? I literally have no info as been buried in restoring Pinball machines for the last 10 years.

Unfortunately Oppo stopped making players, and the latest models (203 and 205) are being resold on eBay at very high prices. If you don't need 4k video, look for a used 103 or 105.

My Denon blu ray player bit the dust and I need to pick up something new. I am still on 1080P with my TV and receiver, and probably won’t upgrade in the near future. Rather than buy a UHD player that will be outdated when I do upgrade everything else, I was just going to snag something simple.

I don’t need streaming capability as I have a Roku, I don’t need WiFi as I have a switch available. This Sony BDP-S1700 seems like a good option, any glaring issues with it?

5.1: Samsung PN60F5300 | Sony BDP-S1700 | Denon AVR-1713 | EMP E55Ti | EMP E56Ci | EMP E5Bi | Outlaw Ultra-X12

2.0: Oppo DV-980H | Apple Airport Express | Topping D30 | Parasound HCA-1500a | Chane A1.4

Help in choosing player

I have a sony xbr75x850f 75-inch 4k ultra hd smart led tv (2018 model), and a Denon AVR-X3500 Receiver. I want to purchase a 4K UHD DVD player and am not sure if I should go with the Sony 700 or the Sony 800. Or maybe anything else that would get the best picture and sound? I don't know if my television has any limitations that would make one of the players a better option for me. I would certainly appreciate any advice that could be received. Thank you very much.

I have found out my TV does not support Dolby Vision so getting a player that supports Dolby Vision isn't necessary. So maybe the Sony 800 or the Panasonic DP-UB820-K? Thanks again for any assistance.

$7,000 - $10,000 for a decade old bluray player in the age of 4k? Is this a joke?

They are not just for bluray player. The main focus is more toward the cd transport into dedicated DAC for stereo hifi. Its for both hifi and home system 2 in 1 for me or maybe is there any better-recommended options?

Sony BDV- model HBD-E390 replacement?

Hey, I have been out of the BluRay player for a long time. My wife bought this in 2010, and it works great.
But, Amazon prime wont work on it as of last month. Its service is no longer available,.
So, Is there a newer version that will allow me to use the surround sound speakers that came with this system?
Thoughts, and suggestions..
