I am one of the Fortunate 50. Over the years, I have received some very good information and advise, as well as respectful answers to many of my questions on this Forum. I have what probably would be described as a mid-level knowledge of all things home theatre, and have a mid-level system as well (Samsung 67" 750 LED DLP TV which replaced a Pioneer Elite Pro 730 RPCRT TV, a new Pioneer Elite receiver, a Toshiba XA2 HDDVD player, a Oppo 983H, and a number of Blu Ray players including the Pioneer 51FD, Panasonic BD-35, and LG BH-200. I use Monoprice cables.
I would be happy to now give back to this Forum by testing out or trying out the various features and goodies the BDP-83. I expect to receive my player soon since I live in Northern California, a couple hundred miles from Mountain View.
If you like, please post what you would like me to test out on the BDP-83 and/or observe, and Ill report my findings back to this Forum.
