Help me pick a new Disc Player.

Help me pick a new Disc Player.

I have a large DVD collection and a basic home theater setup:

Samsung HL-T6187S LED-DLP 1080P TV
Yamaha Receiver 5.1 600 watts

Nothing high-end, but I like a nice picture and good surround sound.

I want to upgrade my current DVD player with something better and more capable.

I own no Blu-Ray as yet, but am willing to buy and rent some.

My priority list in order of importance:

1. High-quality upscaling - make my DVD collection look as good as possible.

2. Multi-region capacity and high quality PAL-to-NTSC conversion. I'd like to import and play whatever strikes my fancy, esp. Brit and Japanese stuff that will never be released in the US

3. PQ means more to me than SQ

4. Blu-Ray capacity is a nice plus, but not absolutely necessary. Same with multi-region BluRay capacity.

5. Digital file (DivX, AVI, MPeg-4) playback also would be nice

My budget is no more than 400.00 for a player.

I am looking at the Momitsu BD-899.

I would consider the Oppo DV-981H or DV-983H but they have discontinued production.

The Oppo BD-83 looks like it will street at 500.00, which is over my budget. I may be wrong about that.

Any opinions welcome.

The BD-83 is not going to be multi-region anyway.

The Momitsu seems to be a rebadged Sigmatek. That may be another option for you.
