Well, in response to a seriously off-topic thread, from what I've heard the Oppo is a really good low-end DVD player. Beyond the CNET reviews, which usually are only moderately expert relative to enthusiasts (think making a buying decision on a bike solely on the reviews in Bicycling magazine), I believe they got a recommendation from Perfect Vision, whose audience stretches up into those who spend hundreds of thousands on their A/V systems, and also some of the more reputable A/V enthusiast sites on the web. No personal experience with the brand myself, but it is likely substantially better than the usual crap you see in big box electronics stores.
For a more and probably better-informed opinions you might try the forums over at audioreview.com and/or audioasylum.com.
