I like my Linn Unidisk SC for music. I don't watch a lot of movies though, and it's acceptable in the movie department. I like it better compared to Bel Canto PL-1A, NAD, Denon, and others I've owned.

garyrb: I've loved my esoteric dv50s. It's been one hec of a DVD player. The redbook and sacd are pretty good to. I'll likely upgrade it one day, but in the 4 years of so that i've owned it, it just keeps performing.
I have a pretty hi rez set up. I have zero complaints on this unit. The newer Esoteric's have DVD upsampling which supposedly closes the gap some on blu ray. Again, I don't feel like I am missing that much as is...great pic and sound.
My experience with Oppo was poor.... problems with picture and sound within a few days of operation. Returned it and won't go back. Just my experience... YMMV.
On the other hand, I purchased a used Pioneer Elite DV-47A for a great price and it worked flawlessly for 5 years & many, many hours playing kids movies before it finally gave up the ghost.

Almost everyone elses' milage did vary.Oppo's are very high quality for the $$ and have the best picture of any DVD player according to all the reviews.And they have the best customer support of anyone in the electronics business.You must have had a defective unit.They would have made it right with NO cost to you including shipping both ways.JD
