Default Re: Is Blu-Ray worth it without HDMI & DTS-HD

Is $300 equal to $8000? No, no, no, no.. The Oppo is a Universal player. Again, again, even against the $300 refurb price of the S1, I would not be compelled to upgrade. The Oppo Beta version had jaggies.. A video artifact. on the Oppo is bad. With respect to CD's the Krell 250/2 in my opinion is a better CD player that is years older and could be bought on Ebay for $1500. Then again, I would see no reason to buy the Oppo. In my opinion, yes these are extreme comparisons, but people with decent CD only players, SHOULD then IMO not intend to try to buy a Universal player, but a player that plays the SINGLE format that they want.
