I am in the lookout for a new player. Not satisfied with the present Philips player.
Which one should I go for? Oppo 981H? Or Pioneer DV 610?
Audio is not on the top of my priority, so I would go for the Oppo 981H. The only thing that is holding me back is that the 981H has a Frouddja chip for its upscaling and it is said to produce big macroblocking issues with DLP projectors.
Now to add some more to the confusion, what about the XD-E500? What about this? Compared to the 980H.
Thanks, but I am really confused still!
Oppo 980H or Toshiba XDE500??? Pio DV610 is in the shadow now.
Thanks Venkat. I am not particular about USB. I will use it only with my Optoma HD65 projector. Do you know if the player works with 220 volts? And any US sites with lowest prices? Lower than Amazon?
I have recently purchased DV610AV-S from grey market in Mumbai @6.5K.
I needed this player as its capable of playing copy of a watermarked DVD-A.
I have downloaded about 10 DVD-A so far. Going to take a few backups from my brother. The SQ of DVD-A through 5.1 analogue connection is a treat to hear.
The picture quality is good. I have connected through HDMI @ 720p. I have also upgraded firmware from Pioneer FAQ.
I am waiting to get my hands on my order of my 1st SACD: The Dark Side of the Moon.
Now reading this is really tempting. I have been reading up on Pio610 for upgrade but yet to start saving up the $$ for the buy.
You say that you have connected through HDMI @720p. Now is that good and what will it take to upscale to 1080i or 1080p?
