Wonderful player. I have one. Does SACD. I got it as a universal player. Does an excellent job upscaling DVDs. I got it when Amazon had them for $79. Then they got smart that people were buying these rapidly. Still a good deal at $208.
The Oppo BDP-83 is the cheapest new SACD player that I am aware of. I've invested in a small collection of SACDs (mostly RCA Living Stereo) so far, but I'm only listening to their Red Book layers on an upsampling CD player. The absence of a viable rock and popular music catalog is killing SACD.
