"The Best Period"5.0 starson by joshdeboer
Pros: Customer service, picture quality on BD, up-conversion of standard def material and dedicated stereo outs (DAC)
Cons: hum...? I really can't think of any at the moment.
Summary: If your looking for the best blu-ray player on the market, buy it. If your not, go to Best Buy. Simply put, Lexicon packaged their $2,000 BD player using the Oppo BDP-83 for a reason. Oppo is what my AV partner recommend for all the people we do home theater consulting with on the side. If you don't want to spend this much money, get the step-down Oppo unit or the Panasonic 65.
