Oppo 981HD--repair or replace?
I have an Oppo 981HD I must have bought 10 years ago. I bought it because it had some amazing upscaling chip, and outputting 1080P was supposed to be better than letting my TV upscale it. I've always been happy with it, but it died, and it's way out of warranty.
I still care about quality DVD playback, but I'm less interested in paying oodles of money for it when so many things have been re-released on BluRay now.
Should I :
--try to get it repaired. Is it still a good player? Is it something special that's worth repairing?
--get a new DVD player. Are there better ones now? If I just buy something with a decent rating on Amazon for $50, how is it going to compare?
--get a BluRay player. Do any of them play DVDs better than this one?
