Player With A Killer Blu Ray Picture

Do you have to spend more than $500 for a killer Blu Ray picture? Most blu ray players are of the universal player type. All I want is a blu ray player that has a stunning onscreen image.

I have no interest in all the other stuff the player has to offer, the image is the thing for me. I'm not interested in a do-it-all player, I already have a pre-pro, and I don't want or need cd or sacd. I'd like to have your recommendations for a player with a killer 1080p image priced up to $2,000. If I can have that killer image for $500 bucks, that cool too.

The only thing I'm interested in here is Blu Ray image quality.
The viewing device is going to have more to say on how good the image quality is. The small differences between one good blu ray player and another won't really matter in comparison.
I second the Sony BDP-S790. I have it, and there is a reason WhatHiFi awarded it
BlueRay of the Year multiple years in a row. It has a brilliant picture! Since it is
out of production, you could buy it's replacement model, the BDP-S7200.

Having said that...the Marantz UD7007 was awarded the Best BluRay above 300
pounds. It's $1,200 here, but can be found for $875 through a google search.
Also, Music Direct has a demo model, with full warranty, for $899. Hope this
