Thanks.

Sorry prepress I don't use cable or satellite service.

I wouldn't, except that the reception here is lousy. I think I'll try the Furman anyway.

I ve just purchased the Oppo B93 region A I would like any suggestion on what other player I should get rid of. I'm getting rid of the Sony but I'm also thinking the Philips. I have more region A movies than I do Region B.

Btw a special thanks to wabo for making me buy it.

Congrats on your new BDP-93. So what does that make now, 84 or 85 BD players for you? You're like a one man video store. Franin's A/V Emporium. Get rid of both the Sony & Phillips. You no longer need them.

I'm here to help.

Thanks Dan its been a hard decision to see which 2 players didnt make the cut.

Just to let everyone know Wabo started this he told me about the Sony BDP-5000ES which is great but my interest were more towards the Oppo 93.

You're making my head spin. So it's the Panny that didn't make the cut? When does your Oppo 93 arrive?

Good luck with that. You'll need to trade your HT in for a supermarket special HTiB and start putting your Vegemite on expired white bread. Welcome to the Wabo world. It's pretty sad.

Very nice addition Frank. I am still quite happy with the 83. Plus, I am planning on getting new chairs and replacing my couch. I need to be space concious do I am getting some very nice Lazy-Boy recliners in leather. Not top of the line I know, but they are comfy and will not dominate the room like some of the other ones would. But your room keeps getting better and better.
And I have to agree about Waboman's system. I have taken a look at it a few times and it looks great every time I see it. Just like yours Frank. Makes me wish I had a bigger room. But I make do with what I have.

It ain't easy being green.

Lazy-boys are nice Mike. I'm looking also replacing my theatre seats also I want individual ones Ive had enough of the ones that connect together. Anyway mine have nearly had it the cushioning has lost it's comfort. I can live with it for know but it soon has to go. The best time for me to change is when they offer us the upgrades for the Denon AVP and then I can redo audyssey that one time.

Let us know how you go with your Lazy Boys Mike.
