If by 'subjective' you mean actually taking the time to view and listen, then it most certainly is not irrelevant. If people wish to assume modifications make no differnece, that is fine. I prefer to take the time to actually see/hear for myself - even if I am skeptical going in.
Nobody yet knows anything sunstantive about the Lexicon, including, whether it is really based on the Oppo (seems a reasonable guess, given the layout of the rear panel however). Who knows what Lexicon will do to the player beyond a cosmetic upgrade, and whether those things will make any sunstantive difference.
I've done enough comparisons of the Oppo as a digital transport against much more expensive spinners to be comfortable that it'll not be surpassed, but time will tell. Using the Oppo's analog outputs is a different story, so perhaps that is where Lexicon can separate themselves (much as, presumably, Mearantz will do with their $6K player).
