is the Arcam player better than the Oppo? or the other way round.My amp is the avr400 to match.
Thanks guys it looks like the oppo 93, Is the pq really that good compared with a ps3, I have now ruled out the Arcam due to price, the unit I buy will be mainly for blu-ray and 3d.
Despite what you may hear a 1080p/24 Blu-ray image is near reference from the PS3. Unlike some players the PS3 doesn't enhance the Blu-ray image in an attempt to create a synthetically sharper image or apply filters to reduce noise. The Oppo does offer a range of user adjustable enhancement settings that can sharpen or reduce noise etc that can be applied to Blu-ray. Properly setup and calibrated there is little difference in 1080p/24 Blu-ray image between the Oppo and PS3.
For DVD you may achieve better results by tuning town the sharpness control from 0 to a minus number as the Oppo has a tendency to add halo artefacts to scaled DVD.
Hmmmm....not sure Sony are right on that one.
The release notes for the firmware that enabled 3D state a couple of limitations, one being no HD audio when 3D playback is enabled.
It will output the legacy core codecs (i.e. Dolby Digital from Dolby True HD and dts from dts HD MA).
I had the link to the disclaimer somewhere but if you Google it you should find it.
Does the lossless audio matter tho? It does for me and that would be the deal breaker if I was looking a ps3.
After reading reviews on the ps3, I'm just concerned that the pq may not be as good as a oppo 93, also I do like the idea on moving the subtitles on the oppo. I suppose the qestion is do you pay £200 for a ps3 160gb or £499 for the oppo?
