The 103 has been out for 3+ years. I'm sure right before the holiday season Oppo don't want to feed rumors another Oppo model is around the corner.

I decided to do the same. With the announcement of UltraHD Blu Ray I can't imagine a new Oppo not being available in 2016. Hopefully that player will be even better than the 103.

Interesting for sure. Right now I have a Tivo Roamio Plus DVR, BDP-93, Epson 3020 and a Marantz AV8801 where the AV8801 is doing the upconverting. If I would upgrade to the BDP-103 I would route the...

Has anyone here upgraded to the BDP-103? I'm a very happy BDP-93 owner and I'm curious to see if an upgrade is worth it. Is the streaming improved? Load times? I assume PQ and SQ is more or less the...

I miss the SMR Forums and the Lexicon line... As a former DC1/MC1/MC8/MC12 owner I'm happy with the Marantz processors... But do I miss Logic 7 sometimes.

Mocking might not have been the right word. But I am not getting a positive vibe from the comments above regarding Marantz amps. Maybe it's just me.

^^^ No, I haven't used the Marantz as my "primary" amp. However, reviews have been good and I have no complaints.

No? I am using a MM8077 for my surround channels combined with a Parasound A51 for the main/c/sides. Nothing wrong with the MM8077.

I am using my MM8807 for the surround channels (front/rear/side heights). Have Parasound amps (A51) for the others. No complaints about the MM8077 the way I use them.
