Well, I can't blame them for the fingerprints. I don't think I've seen a single disc that wasn't playable due to fingerprints or dirt.

I'm averaging about 1 in 8 BR discs is damaged. What bugs me is that I have to wait even more days for the movie after I report the problem. So if I rent 8 at a time, I really am only getting 7...

I don't know if it will take that long but I'd hope 90" models are running $12K by next year :)

Ideally Oppo would make a high end streaming player with a lot more functionality than their BR player has.

I know I could never have a 110" screen in my current apartment but now you have me giddy at that thought of a 90" screen :)

That is an interesting take on the situation. I hope they get some things figured out soon as I'd like to buy an 85" if they can get the price down by next year.

Oppo has recently released a high end headset and headphone amp - getting great reviews. While I have no interest in those things, I certainly don't begrudge them expanding their product line. ...

I honestly think it would have to be $9,000 or less to frighten Samsung. I think Kuro would still be going strong if people were willing to pay for a quality TV.

I have a similar issue but I can't bring myself to buy a 77" OLED when I could be watching an 85" screen. What they need is a 85" 4k OLED TV for under $10,000 and I'm all chips in at that point.

I want to be as rich as you before I die :) That thing is way too expensive ($20,000-$35,000) for me although it sure looks cool. I got both of my AVPs for $4200 each. I'm hoping my next...

I looked into building a HTPC and while I build all my PCs, this one would be outrageously expensive only because the only passively cooled case I liked was over $1000 (without any equipment).

Best playback device other than a HTPC?

Hello,


I'm debating building a HTPC but would like to know about other devices. Currently I use my Oppo 103 and it has some nice advantages over some others:
1. It is silent - no fans
2....

I have a feeling about 75% of us will end up with the same prepro to replace our AVP whatever that may be. Chances are the bulk of us have an Oppo BR and I don't think that is a coincidence. ...
