TrustedReviews suggested the same thing

Not to be pedantic, but TrustedReviews stated that "The great work continues with 3D discs. The depth and clarity of the layered images is astonishing, plus we can’t fault the levels of detail, colour accuracy and motion smoothness."

There should be no difference between BDPs in terms of 1080p and 3D performance, unless the player is adding unwanted processing to "improve" the image. SD performance is another matter. The 651 is the least expensive BDP fitted with the Marvell QDEO processor, which is arguably the best around for SD upscaling.

Not yet. I'm still debating whether better upscaling and more robust build quality are worth another £300.

RE: Any CA 651BD Owners Out There?

I might call on Monday and ask about a home demo. Hopefully they'll agree as it's the last one they have in stock and last year's range. I'd imagine they'd be keen to sell rather than have old stock hanging around.

IME if you haven't decided 'no' yet it means you will inevitably decide 'yes' in due course. Better to accept that now and avoid disappointment.

I've often decided against something after lengthy deliberation. And I thought you were thrifty, Ben!

RE: Any CA 651BD Owners Out There?

Well, it's easy to spend other people's money! I generally am thrifty but equally there have been occasions where I've cogitated for so long that when I've eventually attempted to pull the trigger the product has disappeared or the cost has increased prohibitively. Given your honesty about your inner av snob and your desire for better build quality and upscaling, it seems to me you will eventually say yes but that you risk missing out by delaying.

I'm sure similar deals will come every year.  Smile

What about Denon 1713UD?

Check this thread.

Cheers BB.

Denon uses Anchor Bay processing for SD upscaling. I've tested Anchor Bay processing against my Panny 120 and the differences were negligible. I want to compare the 120's upscaling with Mavell QDEO processing (i.e. Cambridge or Oppo).
