    I believe that Kris Deering has one in for review for a future issue and it's supposed to launch this summer.

    David,

    Is Sound & Vision the magazine you were referring to? I've seen Deering's articles in S&V.
    I went back and re-read your article on Samsung UBD-M9500 (S&V Dec 2017).
    Does anyone have a transport to compete with OPPO's?

    Panasonic...some say it's better than the Oppo as a disc player, or at least equal. But it doesn't do all of the stuff Oppo does (SACD, DVD-A, video processor).

    I would imagine that DVD-A and SACD support is going to be tough to find in a new player, moving forward.

    There simply isn't enough interest in those formats for a big company like Panasonic, Sony..... to care.

    David,

    Well, I can't buy either at the moment. The UB-820 hasn't been released and the BDP-203 is currently unavailable from Oppo, I refused to pay the inflated price from others.

    I would rather buy the newer Panasonic UB-820 when released. The idea of buying an out of production player is a gamble.

    The lack of DVD-A & SACD isn't a deal breaker for me. What's important to me are timely firmware updates, built-in support for major streaming services, long term maintenance support for the player and video performance, at least, equal to the Oppo.
