I've been warning folks for a long time now to buy something "inexpensive" like the Integra DTC 9.8 to tide them over hoping Theta will come thru with the HDMI 1.3 upgrade, not to newly get into a Theta CB3 until the chicken has hatched from the egg. Despite that foolish OB at that "other forum" accusing me of leading the blind when he hadn't read my posts.
Due to all the delays, whatever the reason (actually, I know of a large reason for the delay, that you don't know, but I am sworn to confidentiality on that), putting new money into a CB3 is foolish at this point, - until HDMI is out and reasonably available as an upgrade path. And unless that occurs, folks will be justified to feel that they have been mislead by Theta. I am "hoping" HDMI will eventually come out in 2010 sometime and that the upgrade will have the nickname "The Bland's Folly" but yea
folks are quite justified to consider The Bland as a audio video Nostradamus re the end of (not the world) Theta Digital.
As for the Theta Blu Ray Player - hey, give us two of them, one simply as a HDMI transport, and one with the upgraded multi-channel analog outputs. That makes more sense assuming Theta intends and does come thru with HDMI 1.3 on the CB3. At this point a big assumption.
