I purchased all of the Audioquest from Sound Advice as they were going out of business for 80% off.
The Kimber Kable, I did pay much more for but believe it to be quality Speaker Cable and love WBT's.

Hello,
Thank you Tony. I really debated getting the OPPO as I clearly did not need it. At the time OPPO offered 50 for the Early Adopter Program, I signed up. I did not get picked and ended up picking up a BDP-51 and DV-980H at the same time instead.

For some time , I advocated the combo of the Pioneer and the OPPO over the BDP-83 because you could purchase both for less money and have native multiregion PAL/NTSC conversion via the 980. This is something lacking in the BDP-83. Now there are physical mods available to make the 83 multiregion, but it is not the same as entering a code on the remote control. Saying nothing of voiding the warranty on the 83.

I cannot believe that OPPO has discontinued production of their DVD Players. The DV-980H is now selling used for more than it cost to purchase it new. Same case with the DV-983h.
Cheers,
JJ

Those oppo dvd prices just show that they discontinued them too early. There is still a market for people who don't want to go bluray but still want an excellent upscaler for their giant DVD collections.
