Well, I just pulled the trigger on an OPPO DV-981HD 1080p High Definition Up-Converting Universal DVD Player with HDMI. My JVC LCoS display is only capable of 720p/1080i, so I realize I won't be able to take advantage of OPPO's 1080p upconversion feature, but from what I've read from you guys and elswhere, the picture should be a significant improvement over my Sony megachanger's progressive scan 480i feature.
I was seriously contemplating upgrading to Sony's 400-disc upconversion megachanger, but I just couldn't fathom spending that kind of money - plus, I'm betting that the DCDi technology by Faroudja will outperform Sony's upscaling technology (and my Sony megachanger can't even be daisy-chained, either). Although it will be a bit of an inconvenience to take a disc out of the Sony megachanger every time I want to see it upconverted in the OPPO player, I will still use the megachanger, as it is still a great place to store, organize, and play DVD's that still look great.
Comments are welcome, as usual.
