I an interested in the answers to this thread. I would suspect that the Panasonic BDP-85K would be an option (Wolson DAC and low jitter circuitry) - although it may not be quite up to the video performance of the Oppo 83.

Audiomike2...check out this thread: http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr.pl?ddgtl&1276102237&&&/oppo-83-se-or-oppo-83. There are many other Oppo BDP-83 and BDP-83 SE threads as well that you can read through. Good luck.
I have read alot of threads on here and elsewhere.. having a hard time deciding which will be better.. I would think the SE with the analog outs would be much better DAC'S that are in my Yamaha but the bass mamangement has me concerned... I would be using Kimber PBJ's for the analog out's.. I would use it mostly for Blu-ray mult channel soundtracks and music concerts along with sacd's and dvd-audio's.. I already have an arcam for redbook.. any suggestions would be appreciated,,,, thanks
I would think I could play with the internal oppo controls delay management etc ..it just seems a little more limited but doable..some of the limits like the ganged distance and delay settings for the speakers may not be as dialed in as I have now but I could see where I could compensate...it might work...just don't want to make an expensive mistake. :)
Well, I bought the OPPO bdp-83 regular edition and i am happier than a clam.. sounds great for BD, SACD AND DVD AUDIO and the included HDMI cable kicks butt.. so it works great.. I still have my ARCAM for Cd playback.. best BD player in SQ/PQ i have owned.. it seems like it it should cost much more than what i paid.. bravo OPPO!
