Very simple...I want blu ray for my new HT.

PS3 $299

Panny BD-30 $499

or wait til the summer when new models come out..maybe even a little cheaper?

Set up will be a HDMI video connection directly to the Mitsubishi HC4900 projector.

I'm going to wait to at least see what Oppo has in mind, and when they think it will deliver. Then make a decision on which way to go.

I wait a few months and let the dust settle. I like the prospect of the Oppo player as well.

I purchased the PS3 and wished I had waited. :huh:

I wish I had waited because I believe I would rather wait on one player, a BD player that upconverts as well as the XA2. The OPPO or some other unit may end up doing that, although there is no guarantee. That way I can move my XA2 into the great room and not have to worry about what to get for a there. As it stands I will want to keep the XA2 in the HT room because it upconverts better than the PS3.

Who knows what I really want... not even me for now. :dontknow: Other than I just wished I'd waited. I may go back to SD-DVD and just keep the XA2 for as long as it will work, but then I have the PS3.

I would personally get the PS3 (I already have the 60gb) -- you get the Blu-ray player (with easy updates), along with the gaming console and media center. However, despite what you may have heard, I find it can be relatively loud at times (something to do with the revised fan blade design).

I'm waiting. Looks like Fry's has a nice sale on HD-DVD's that should tide me over for awhile.

Oppo looks the most promising based on their past track record. Also can't overlook McIntosh/Denon.
