I was looking at  Denon DBT3313 or  Marantz UD 7007 would they be overkill ?

 

Not an overkill just a waste of money, no need to spend more than the Oppo, you are not going to gain anything.  

Reasons I should go with the Oppo ?

 

1.  You are not going to get better.

2.  This is what the image looks like:

www.whathifi.com/forum/tvs-and-projectors/pictures-and-videos-of-a-panasonic-50vt65

 

3.  It ticks all the boxes for what you want.

4.  Operation is very good.

5.  Reliable and very good quality.

6.  Cheaper than most high end Blu-ray players.

7.  Buy from Frank Harvey and ask for a forum discount.   Wink

Your making me think about the Oppo a bit more now Gel !!!!!!

 

I would.  If you are set on the Marantz though order it from Superfi, if you don't think it is up to snuff send it back, that's what I did.

Yep, that is true, Frank Harvey do too, so you can buy the Oppo from there knowing you are safe too.  Just speak to David if you call about a forum discount.  Wink

What I`ll do is try the Marantz , as that would be my first choice. Then if it doesn`t live up to expectations I`ll send it back and try the Oppo.

RE: New Blu Ray Player Required.

Not keen on these "Manuals on a Disc" only a paper quick start guide.

What was wrong with a good old fashioned instruction manual ?

Could be I`m showing my age.

Got it set up :grin:

Could not be happier. I am really pleased I purchased it. After the Denon 2500 I was apprehensive making another purchase, as the only thing wrong with it "imo" was the slow loading times, but the UD7007 improves on it in every area .

Only marginally mind you in PQ, but significantly in SQ. I have only used it for blu ray`s so far but "WOW"

I have still to have a good play around with the picture settings but as it stands , Its a keeper.

Sorry to see the old Denon go :cry: but, there is no stopping progress.

A visit to Fleabay is now in order.
