Does anybody have any comments on this player, or experience using it?  The reviews are kind of scarce out there. The reason i ask, is because i'm buying an onkyo TX-NR807 AVR from crutchfield, and i can add on the DV-BD507 for $100.  Basically $300 off their normal price. I'm mostly concerned with SD DVD upscaling.  I'm researching which BD player to add to my system, and i'm stuck between the Oppo and the LG BD390. Having the LG's streaming capabilities would be nice, but i like the reviews of the oppos upscaling abilities. Thanks for any input... Bobby

Hey Ed -

Well, an update...I bought the TX-NR807 from abt.  paid 800.  bought the samsung PN58b860 for 2099 at a local store (LOVING it), and i went with a Samsung bdp1600 bluray.  (i know it's not the oppo...but i went with a cheap replacement until i can afford to buy it).  Between those purchases and other crap...yikes, i've spent some money recently.

To answer your question on speakers, i have the 600 S3 series from B&W from years back.  They sound great...

As for Pink Floyd, probably my favorite band of all time next to the Allman Bro's.  Dark Side is AMAZING!, top three album ever  Don't have any SACD's, but i would buy that album in that format.
