Pioneer LX500

Has anyone heard or purchased the Pioneer LX 500. I would like to know if it is any good or in  the class of Oppo.
The reviews are all favorable with only Pioneer bettering it in one aspect
(4:4 scaling: jaggies) . You wouldn't notice it unless your were told. That, and since OPPO is long gone....

All the best,
I have an 105 and a 205 but a friend of mine is looking to buy an all in one player. His name is on the Oppo list for the 203 and 205 but who knows if he will ever get one. I read that Oppo will be selling batches until September but I don't know if that is true. I am holding on to both of mine. I figured if the pioneer is as good as the Oppo he would just get one of those.
OPPO shipped out all their remaining stock months ago I am afraid.
Nothing more to come from OPPO.
Pioneer looks ok on paper.
It looks like a good player with good reviews.  There are a couple of interesting points.  It doesn’t seem to have Oppo’s Network function.  With my Bluesound currently dead, I’ve been using my Oppo machines to control my NAS.
   The other interesting point for me is the Quartz Lock feature, for which you need a matching Pioneer AVR.  Somehow this is supposed to increase SQ and there is no explanation as to how.  In my basement I currently am using a 14 year old Pioneer Elite DVD/SACD Player that connects to a Pioneer Elite AVR Of equal vintage through an “I link” which was developed by Sony and is a FireWire link between the players customized for Multichannel.  It seems as though Pioneer is still doing something like this.
