Mid range,Yamaha...Thats as far as my budget goes so any higher I have no idea...
Panasonic is coming out with their NEW upscale 4K player in the fall. Looks like it was designed to compete with the Oppo 205. Analogue outs, better video processing. Dolby vision plus the new HDR10+. No list price yet though.
Option (1) CAMBRIDGE and OPPO share the same DNA with the same motherboard
Option (2) a Superior audio and video: check out the ARCAM UDP411
I moved up to an ARCAM when (IMO) it bested my prior CAMBRIDGE in terms of both audio and video performance for HT. (I use a standalone high-end CDP for my 2-channel audio )
"Also Cambridge Audio as well are in the Oppo’s price range for universal players."

Before I purchased my current Oppo 105, I owned a Cambridge Audio 751BD which was a great performer. Same platform as the Oppo 95.

I was actually looking for a CA 752BD, which does have a DAC feature, when I found the Oppo 105
