Say the added cost is the same. Is there any real advantage of the 103D over the 103 with Darblet?
I had the Darbee Darblet before getting the 103D and agree with everything Bill said above. While I did have some handshake problems with the Darblet what was more problematic for me was the remote control, it was very unreliable, often having to be right on top of the unit to get it to respond. The Darbee feature built-in to the Oppo has operated perfectly without issue.

As far as cost, you should be able to get at least $150 for the Darblet and that will more than cover the extra cost of the 103D over the 103.

A lot of cable boxes will still be problematic (especially at NATIVE) but that is to be expected with HDMI..
Do remember they are TRULY directional (unlike bs Monster cable cables) If you have them hooked up the wrong way they will NOT work..Also, you can not "daisy chain" them...
Hmm, I am using Redmere cables from all of my source devices to my prepro (Yamaha CX-A5000) and then another Redmere cable from the prepro to my projector w/o any handshake issues. So, my question is, what exactly do you mean by "you can not daisy chain them". I suspect the CX-A5000 is re-driving the output HDMI signal to the projector, but don't really know that.
