I have a Samsung DVD Player with Faroudja upconversion, which is quite amazing. I'd like to get a Blu-Ray player, but have a lot of SD disks still to play. What's the best upconverter today, and what blu-ray players can I find it in? (e.g. Sony PS3 vs. Reon HQV vs. Faroudja vs. ?) I've heard Panasonic are very good, but they don't say anything about the upconversion process.
From what I've read in reviews (professional and user) the Oppo BDP-83 is the best out there for upconverting SD discs....if you have the $499 for it. Other good choices are the Pioneer BDP-320, Sony BDP-S360/N460/S560 models, JVC XV-BP1 (more or less in that order).
