I would buy it right now if it did SACD and DVD-A and didn't have the same issue as Oppo with analog outputs.

Price point is still higher than the individual players, but you get the advantage of using up only one HDMI port. If the price drops for gen 2 combo players I'll probably bite and get this instead of a dedicated BD player.

Patience. These will become commodity items soon enough. My first DVD player was a pretty low end model and cost $399. Conversely I got a new DVD player for the bedroom as a prize in a box of Cracker Jacks.

I don't. What I should have said is that SACD and DVD-A is a necessary but not sufficient condition. The other condition is that it should not have the Oppo's analog output design deficiency. Sorry for the confusion.

English is so imprecise and very often I wish I could communicate in my mother tongue .

Ugh, I remember those days. I bought a 1st gen entry level Panasonic A110U for $399 in 1998. Still works just fine today though... I can't say the same for the 3 cheap off brand players my brother-in-law has purchased from Wal-Mart over the past couple years.
