This is very encouraging. Please let us know if your opinion is still true after you have it for awhile. Is Audio section as good as Denon? I am looking for a backup DVD player myself. Currently has Denon 2900.

Yes, please respond regarding the audio quality. I have a seperate CD player for CD's but would be using the OPPO for concert DVD's etc and need good audio. Would be nice to save $$$ on this player and reaply it toward a projector.
I know the OPPO is new but anybody know who could mod the audio section?
I have had the Oppo for less than a year. Then they sent me an updated remote (much better!)which was much needed. I stuck a Dianne Krall dvd-audio in there last night, and the sound was great. I usually listen to cds with my denon 1650 cd player. I don't have the Oppo set up for 6 channel, but I'm going to try it. The audio on h/t is excellent, and although I'm sure the build quality is much less than the 5910,3910, or 2910, so is the price! And the upscale picture is terrific. I use the DVI direct to my Samsung HD 50". $200 bucks!!
Toysnob-----at the time I purchased mine, they were backordered on the New units are were only selling Refurbs, their stock may have changed now...
Tickfight---I run mine into a Timbre TT1 outboard DAC, so I am not able to comment about its audio quality,..
as a transport? the thing is pretty flimsy, I would assume there are better choices for use as a transport.
