Oppo has a new unit coming shortly - a BD player with their typical high quality DVD performance and all the key audio formats.
I have no first hand experience of it - meaning what I am about to say may well be urban myth - but apparently many BD players don't handle DVDs well at all... not sure about the BD/CD combo
I got a dedicated Oppo for DVD and a dedicated Panasonic for BD - total was under $500
Or you might want to hold on to your CD player until you get a chance to evaluate your new player
I was looking for a one-box Blu-ray solution for CD, DVD and BD. Since I use a Benchmark DAC1, the analog section wasn't important to me. But, I've found that BD players are video centric. To access common CD functions like Repeat, a video monitor must be on. I really like the Samsung BD-P2500 player, but it's not useable to me as a CD player. So my suggestion is to check the user interface for CD features of import to you.
My Denon 3910 player does CDs very well, so I assume any of the higher end Denon players would be good.
