Good players Seth! ( touchwood). Actually it was waboman who told me about these players in the beginning. He told me they were quick and pq was awesome. In wabos case he wanted it more for 3D ( he was getting ready for it ) while in mine I needed something that was better than my Sony and Panasonic with subtitle shift.

Thanks, Senator Franin. I just received the invite to play your politicians, double-speak 3D seminar. I'm gonna have to decline. Sorry.

Ah, I see Senator Franin is throwing around his double-speak again. Now enjoy your new 3D bluray player. What is this now? Number 74?

Thanks for the compliment buddy, no senator here. Just waiting to see your pics of your setup when you go 3D.

Number 74? My name is Frank.

That's a good unit from all accounts, and the one I was going to get originally. I didn't know they were still in production. What made you decide on that one?

HI prepress me and waboman were discussing this player awhile back I was going to get one through this site but unfortunately I think they all sold out. I was luck to find some in another site at a steal which included delivery and I could not pass it up. They retail here for $2500AU I remember and the price I paid was 80% off the retail.

It all began with Waboman letting me know about the deal which was offered on this site and I wasnt able to get one out of they were sold out. Lucky for me I found some more and they were able to deliver to me to Australia.

There is some places that have some more and lucky for you guys your shipping will be bugger all. When I receive it I should be able to post some pics.

Frank, what is up!

Since you're the man when it comes to dvd players AND you live closer to Japan, I have a question for you: my friends and I are really geeked about the new 13 Assassins movie. I want to get it, but for some reason the international version is 15 minutes shorter and I want the original Japanese edition. Do you know anything about this, like what would be a good place to order it (the original Japan version) and if it has English subtitles? From what I understand, Australia is on a different region from Japan. Do you recommend a good, reliable (and reasonably priced) bluray player that can play all regions?

Hey buddy how are you? I have to admit I'm not familiar with 13 Assassins but Japan is the same region as you guys.

I've used these guys before called yes Asia when I bought a region A ps3 ( it was awhile ago ) and they were quite good.

Here's the link hope it helps.

Best multiregion blu ray is an oppo bdp 93.

Frank, congrats! That rack sure looks impressive!

Hey, thanks for that link, it's pretty cool! I think I'll use them as I'm constantly looking for hard to find stuff...

Does the Oppo 93 play multiregion discs by default or do you have to ask for it when you order?

Thanks!!

eBay my friend there is one guy that I bought my players from and he's really good. Trustworthy too.

Oppo won't sell multiregion players.

Holy moly, big gunz. I count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 BD players in your rack. 6! With another one on it's way for a total of 7! 7! BD players. When you're the Thunder from Down Under, you go big or go home.

Your rack is awesome, my friend. You've done an outstanding job. Even with 7 BD players.

There is one is region A the 2500btci and the other is region B 2500bt. I kept them being the only transport players around plus I like the look of them. They go well.
