Anyone have any experience with the Cambridge Audio DV89, has all the same features of the Oppo, minus the 1080p.  I think any SQ difference would be negligible, but it can be had new for around the same price as the Oppo, just an option as I move toward the DAC.

FYI,

My gut feel reading the forums is that the BD 83 is 2 weeks or so away from going retail...

I've got the Cambridge DVD99, bought it for $299, and I think it's quite good.

It feels reasonably solid and has DVD-A (which is appreciated), SACD capabilities & 1080p video.

I have not heard a truly bad CD/DVD player made in the past 4 years...they are now pretty much uniformly good at very low prices across the board (my opinion only, of course).  I have a ~ 3 year old $59 COBY player that sounds good, too....much better than my Pioneer DV-656 circa 2002 or so.
