Yes, that sounds right now that you mention it.

So 981 is the PQ of the 971 with the SACD of the 970? Sounds like a match made in heaven.

I just read on AVS forum regarding the 981 and SACD support that Oppo digital wrote a consumer telling him that the 970 will have better SACD playback than the 981.

the 970 has superior SACD and DVD-A support to all their other players.

But the 981 has SACD support, DVD-A support, and the 971 video quality...I may just go with the 981 for future proofing (1080p) and the SACD support.

It looks like a nice player. I'm considering it to go with my 1080p tv. I'd rather pay $230 now for an upscaling player that will send 1080p to my tv than go with Blu-Ray or HD-DVD now and pick the wrong horse. That can wait. I wonder how much different the SACD playback is? Is the difference enough that it would be a deal breaker? I don't know. I would like to get rid of another component (my Sony SACD player) and go with the universal player.
