    No worries. It will play blu-rays with no problem and has Pandora and Netflix. It will not however play DVD's (go figure). Doesnt matter how new or perfect they are, it simply wont. But it hasnt had problems with any blu-ray I have thrown at it. Just so your aware. So if your looking for blu-ray only (and no 3D) this would work good.

    Alright folks...

    Won an auction for an Oppo bdp-83!

    Very much looking forward to it.

    The plan is to run it digital out to the PS audio DAC for audio and HDMI to the tv for video.

    Any other thoughts or suggestions, please let me know.

    Just as an FYI the digital out wont let you do SACD or DVD-A over the digital outs. Page 15 in the manual

    Due to copyright restrictions, SACD audio cannot be sent through the coaxial or
    optical digital audio output. To listen to SACD, please use the HDMI or analog audio
    connections.

    Due to copyright restrictions and bandwidth limitations, full resolution audio from DVDAudio
    discs cannot be sent through the coaxial or optical digital audio output. To listen
    to DVD-Audio in full resolution, please use the HDMI or analog audio connections.
    Now I dont know if you can downconvert it to PCM and send it out that way or not, and I could be totally wrong, I just saw that and thought it was worth mentioning.

    I see that.

    Would it make more sense to

    2. AUDIO: HDMI to TV, then TV optical out to DAC, then DAC to preamp. VIDEO: HDMI to TV

    The sony 790 would have been cheaper and beats the 83 in many area's so maybe the most obvious yes, but not the best

    Having heard quite a few Sony BDP's as sources, I'd be willing to put a hefty amount down that the 83 smokes the 790 in all things audio. That's after having its predecessor in my system.

    Well since I already bought it,

    Mine is hooked up in my HT via method #1.

    I use 5.1 analog in/out and do not have a DAC in the mix.

    Thanks.

    This bad-daddy is going to replace the Marantz DV4001 in the 2ch rig, so you can see the associated gear.

    For $50 I have an open box @ BB Toshiba BDX2200 it's slow and a little noisey I would not reccomend this to anyone.

    I've had both in my system and would say the S790 detroys the 83 in many areas including audio. It definitely surpasses it in video quality for sure. I really like Oppo machines, but in this case the Sony is better; especially with streaming HD, etc.
