Panasonic bdp 500 + calibration vs oppo 93
English

I have decided not to buy the pioneer lx55 to compliment my kuro due to continued lypsync issues I have read about.

So I was looking at the oppo 93 but was wondering if it would better buying the pana 500 and have the kuro calibrated for the same money.

Any advice would be welcomed

 

Thanks

It depends what you want out of the blu-ray player. I have the 93 and before that i had a BDT300. The blu-ray picture quality from both is excellent.. the big win with the 93 is the flexibility it has in terms of playing media from external devices. I use my Oppo for playing a wealth of material from external hard drives.. the panasonic was woeful at it.. it may have improved but it was very limited in what it would play when i had the bdt300.

That said if you just want mainly blu-ray and dvd playback then it may well be worth putting the difference towards calibration. I had my Panasonic vt30 calibrated and it was well worth it..

Thanks mick for the reply

I mainly want it for superior bluray picture quality and DVD upscaling as I use a macmini and plex for other media

I was also looking at the marantz but not sure what I'd gain in picture quality for more money

thanks

i cant comment on the marantz but i think general opinion would be that there isnt much in it in terms of picture quality when it comes to high end blu-ray players (especially with blu-ray). i used to find the panasonic player a bit loud in usage but apart from that it played blu-rays and dvds great.

Hi Rains

Getting the Pioneer calibrated will take the picture to another level.   I have had my 42" Pioneer calibrated and the picture is amazing ... yet I thought it was good before.  Detail, depth and sharpness go through the roof.  Low quality source material becomes more watchable.
