Yes, I experience the exact same freeze up issues. Usually I hit the power, but sometimes it takes forever to shut down so I just pull the plug.

Will be ordering Pretzel Logic later this week. I think I own CTE already, but I need to check my inventory before I double-order another SACD by mistake. I hate when I do that!

I updated the app and now it's telling me my Oppo firmware needs to be upgraded to "version 77". Very strange. I also noticed when playing off a USB mounted drive the Niw Playing feature doesn't work.

I've experienced (and read about) a few freeze issues on the 105D. One situation is when I am playing hi-rez files off a USB drive and then try to change inputs from "music" to HDMI back where my...

Glad to hear that. My replacement panel has several thousand hours on it now and it still looks very good with minimal "blobs". More like a couple of "hot spots" on the right hand side where one of...

Glad you are enjoying it! In my case as well, the Darbee does upgrade the video experience. I may try "pop", but I'm happy with 40% on Hi-Def so far.

I'm sure the 1038be's are amazing speakers after spending 6 months with my Aria 948's. I'm convinced the 948's are a bargain at the $5k price point. I'd probably have to leapfrog the be line to...
