ok i recieved my oppo 970 universal player 2 days ago, and have been running it through its various formats. and i have to admit its the best $149.00 i have ever spent. the sound is great the picture is very nice. even though i primarily bought this as a universal player for audio. they make 2 other models currently, the oppo DV-971HD and the oppo DV-981HD both of which are very nice players. here is a link to a shootout by secrets of home theater hifi. in this one the 971 is tested against other players. it scored the highest of any of them, beating out a denon-5910 which came in 2nd btw and even a $13k player by esoteric. http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/cgi-b...h&articles=all (http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/cgi-bin/shootout.cgi?function=search&articles=all) the customer service is excellent also. they are constantly developing firmware upgrades for there players which are sent to you by email, then you burn onto a blank cd, pop it into the player and its done.
