Haters gotta hate! I've wanted an Oppo player for many years. Now that I finally do have one, the 103, I couldn't be happier. It really has been one the best upgrades I've made to my system. I'm actually shocked at what a difference it has made. I finally pulled the trigger mainly because I wanted one component to be used for all shiny discs. A convenience deal. But both audio and video has improved. The Oppo's fast loading sure is nice.
Signed, Happy Oppo owner.
