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...

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:

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. ...

Not to worry - I think most of us will be ready to buy a new prepro in time, I'm just ready (financially) now :) While I may not even see anything at CES that fits the bill, it could well be another...

Thanks. I'm hoping that by May of next year we'll see something. Maybe Marantz will release a 9902 or Anthem will have a new unit or even Oppo - who knows? There are a few brands I'd be willing...
