Now, to find similar leverage to get me my gear. Maybe a custom Hello Kitty high-gloss finish?

As for DVD players -- I'm happy with my Oppo 971. I've got some A/V sync issues but those may well be due to my TV.

Everyone seems to rave about Oppo's, but they're very difficult to get in my area - no one seems to carry them.

Nobody carries Axioms either! I got mine direct. Dunno if they're available anywhere retail.

I just ordered direct from Oppo.

Although I'm not sure that - today - it is a better investment than a BluRay player. I must say, though, that the upconverted DVD picture is just fantastic, and noticeably better than the OLD Pioneer and cheaper Toshiba that I used to have.

Yep, I like the what their newer players (I have the first gen one) have to offer, but at this point I'll stick with what I have until they get their BD unit on the market.

Ordered an OPPO DV983H last week and it should arrive next week. Will also probably get a PS3 later if I want to go Blu-Ray. We see if this player does make a difference on my DVD collection.
