One more KARMA.....

Last week I made the first upgrade in MONTHS to my HT; I had a Denon DVD-1910 which upconverts through DVI; I was never too happy with the blacks, though overall picture was really good. I've been considering an upgrade for some time now, and thought I'd wait for something in the new generation of players...but got a nice deal on a used OPPO OPDV971H, and since this player has great reviews here and in other places, I decided to go for it.

OMG!!!; this little player does everything the Denon does good...better; and the blacks are incredibly good. This will for sure keep me happy for a couple years until new generation players go down in price and up in quality :)

So....what do I do with my Denon??? I thought I would let some polkie try it, so it's Karma time.

Goes with remote and a DVI-HDMI cable. (EDIT: is a DVI-DVI cable; you can get an adaptor if your TV has HDMI) Manual must be somewhere but it might take a while to find it....and it's easy to download from the web.

No minimum posts required. Drawing will be sometime next weekend.

    Oh yeah, I'm in. I'm still using my old Tosh SD2200, though it does a great job and is HDCD compatible, it was before progressive scan was even heard of.

    Ricardo, you have a PM.

    Unbelievable Karma!
    Please count me in...

    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    This is perfect timing for me. I'm making settlement on my new home 11/20/06 and am pondering what gear I'm going to need for a home theater system. I already have my 2 channel system pretty much complete but have not started building the HT.
