Ever since E3 2005, I've always wanted a silver PS3 in the US. Or at least a silver Japanese one that would let me play some imported japanese PS2 games (and Region 2 DVDs).
I made a choice to buy my Denon 4306 even though the 3808 and 4308 were due because Denon customer service told me that they were going to have the 4308 in silver for North America.
I hate the way companies play these games which just end up leaving us all with ugly ass racks and even limit our options in terms of how we can arrange our systems. They make so many different players etc. There should be a standard. Stackable components, and then all the trendy stylized crap they all sell to the brain dead monkeys. All it ever does is put me off buying stuff, because I don't want to blight my home which I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and effort putting together just to buy some piece of crap 200 dollar dvd player ps3 whatever that mucks up my peaceful and nice home. Such wasteful idiocy is just everywhere. So annoying.
The only solution seems to be to build ventilated cabinets and hide all this hideous crap. Just makes me wish that RF or bluetooth was the standard for remote controls instead of IR.
I agree HTPC BD playback is not worth the headache. I have a great silver HTPC but still have not but a blu-ray drive in it because the software issues.
Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.
I'm looking for a high quality silver blu ray play anyone know of one? I see Cambridge use to sell exactly what I'm looking for in it's older models, just it had 1.3hdmi.
How odd the 105eu seemed to have stopped about 9 months ago the 105D EU in silver according to the official dealers is not available nor will they accept a deposit maybe that would change in the future but it's would they said today..
Thank you anyway Bob, unless I contacted the UK importers I seem stopped
You might want to send an email to OPPO UK directly, and see what the say about availability.
My request was for an Oppo Blu ray player in silver of any model which as the D is the newest I would hope the main dealers would count it
I found tonight an odd thing on eBay UK that is Silver 105D selling from London but only available to various specific European nations UK not included, they had a price just over a hundred sterling each more than rrp here.
So no not sure whats going on but I am "disappointed" that Oppo seem to condone the behaviour and don't appear to supply UK dealers with stock
Can the silver model be sourced ok where you are, in addition do you know of other good brands that do silver please?
What you found regarding Internet purchase is probably nothing more than typical local dealer protection.
If the unit is available in the UK, OPPO UK will know.
Well probably my last look at Oppo brand last night on Amazon UK I found what is classed by Oppo my local dealer and the first of many I spoke too had advertised the silver Oppo unit.
I wrote them a mail asking if they do have them but I am almost certain something is broke in the official oppo network here and don't think I will buy one
I have bought hifi for well over 40 years and never found such a strange dealer network and it concerns me greatly that if something went wrong with the machine I could not expect much in way of support
I don't doubt they are great machines but what a carry on trying to buy one
Enjoy your player
Cheers and thanks for your help
