Oppo BDP-83 universal Blu-ray player blows away CNET reviewers

oppo-83.jpgOkay fine, the Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player is a universal model, capable of Blu-ray, DVD, SACD, CD, and DVD-Audio playback, but the expensive price has always turned me off. But it just received a 4.5 out of 5 from CNET, a nearly impossible score to achieve, so there must be something good about it. The reviewers say it's amazingly quick and responsive, Profile 2.0-compliant, has 7.1 analog outputs, and compatibility with the latest HD audio codecs. But it also lacks Wi-Fi and streaming video from Netflix and Pandora, a must-have for me these days. If the price point was lower, this seems to be a must buy for most home theater fanatics. But for $500, I'm not so sure.
