Your response was about the best player for your money, and the OPPO qualified as well. That was all I was pointing out.
Ok, maybe I like my BDP-83 a lot, and yes, other players are better, but for the price point of the OPPO it can not be beat.
I don't mention OPPO in every post, and I am not a "fanboy", I know the player is not perfect.
However it works well for most owners, and me as well, and when I own a product like that, then I tend to make sure everyone knows about it.
Many people buy things everyday without knowing they may be buying a product that is inferior or doesn't fill their needs properly.
Informing otherwise is my intention when boasting about the BDP-83.
If that appears to be over_championing in some people's eyes, then so be it.
I also boast about other equipment that I have that I really like. It's just not mentioned here because it is not the TOPIC OF DISCUSSION.
BTW Joe, I like you too.
Nothing wrong with a little debate now and again.
I can understand how you get frustrated with 'constant OPPO comparisons".
I don't follow all your threads, so I don't see all those posts, but it does go to show how good the player really is with so many fans out there.
Of course there are other fish in the sea, and it's a good thing we do have guys like you to help us see all of our options.
