The resale value of the OPPO wasn't bad either.
yeah, its all about timing..
I bought it at 3months old, for about $450 and after nearly 9months of use (sparingly) sold it for the same amount..
As others say, its a serious overkill for most of us.. and it being built like a tank, I dont want it to be built like a tank. It is not engaged in warfare is it?
It is going to sit on a shelf for 4 or 5 years, dont know why it has to be built like tank
I found it too big, too heavy.. and just too expensive for what I use it for. I am glad to get rid of it.
I am on a quest to seriously downsize my stereo equipment and the Oppo was the first to go. The next one on the list is a Denon 4806CI receiver.. too big too much for what I use it for..
I was looking for a small footprint receiver and settled on the Peachtree Nova and Marantz 1602 .. I havent installed the marantz yet, but the peachtree certainly sounds nice, although 2channel audio..
I regret to say that I fell into the trap of thinking that the 5.1 is better, then 7.1 and now 9.1.. I realized now that it just takes 2 good speakers and a nice receiver to enjoy high fidelity audio.. I dont need 9 channels. so out goes the Denon
so today, I sat down and ripped apart every component (I had over 8 components) and infinite wires behind them (aargh!)
Every cord, every box better have a serious reason for it to be present in my setup..
