Man, I'm glad there are people everywhere that can tell other people what they see or don't see. I have a PS3 and I have a OPPO and I can see a difference in both of them. They both had different calibration results so how can they not be different? Thank goodness for the internet so other people can tell me I'm wrong.
Explain the part where you talk about different calibration results, how exactly are you calibrating things at your end.
Link below, click it and see why there is no difference and David Mackenzie actually helped Oppo with the development of the BD-83 and did the encode for the recent Spider Baby UK transfer as well as many other blu ray and DVD encodes, he is an ISF calibrator, he does reviews over at HDTV test site, if he isn't qualified to say there is no difference then i do not know who is.
Oh i don't know, who to believe, an expert on all this or casual observers, tough decision.
Quote from David Mackenzie
Seriously, logic and understanding of the hardware and signal processing (or lack thereof) dictates that there is no good reason for there to be a difference in quality. Therefore the onus is on the people claiming to see a superior difference between two correctly working players like the PS3 and most of the Oppos, to prove that there is one. They consistently fail to do so with any sort of scientific method and instead fall back on vague and unverifiable claims.
Sorry to sound snooty. I just get tired of emperor's new clothes stories and people telling me about differences that I can't see in my own encoding work!
