I know what you're saying, but to be involved with a product development like the BDP-83, even on a secondary/tertiary level, would be totally worth it to me. But, sadly, Oppo
did not invite me to participate; if they did, I would have jumped at the chance without any regrets. In any case, I trust that you realize my post was somewhat tongue-in-cheek.

PS. And I don't think that many, if any, early adopter selectees are bugged
about their status.
