Cinemike.de , They know what they are doing and KNOW the avp and poa. last time i was there they had several units of both. One of the biggest problems for maintaining these devices is they are complex and most modders have never seen one. They also did my 3d upgrade btw and they did a lot of them. Problem is as far as i know there are no 3d boards anymore.

jvb.nl , Know them (well i am in *.nl) nice people but more product based good for some stuff like hacks, hs-sdi and pre modded sales. I got my last modded oppo player from them. Personally i doubt if they ever worked on a avp or poa.

"The upgrade company", never used them but i have seen there handy work and how they do PR. They seem to want to work in secret (unlike cinemike that is very open on what they do) and their 'blue' period would send me into shock if they ever did that to say a avp.

just my 2cents,

Daniel.

for men to evolve we have to upgrade

He still does AVP upgrades. The only upgrade that's not available anymore is the 3D-upgrade.

Just be warned about Cinemikes prices. He is doing a lot of work and changing many, many electronic parts in the AVP. This is a lot of work and he has a plan, he worked out in advance, what to change.
However, if I remember correctly and if you do all levels of his upgrades you have at the end two AVPs at home - price wise, not physically. Also, you have to take step after step and start at step one.
I was also interested in changing the OpAmps of the AVP, which he seems to change to the newer ones used in the 8801. Despite that I never received an answer to my e-mail, I sent six months + ago, you can't get this step number three alone. You have to buy the upgrades one and two to get three. Technical nonsense for me but surely good for Cinemikes budget.
Just what I found out and my personal experiences.
