Dan Wright hasn't got back to you? I talk with him almost daily (at least weekly). He responds asap. his customer service is the only thing better than his mods or original products. Weird.
As I've posted earlier and elsewhere, I am a longtime Modwright customer, a beta tester of most of his products, have had a say in his design work, and have become a close friend over the years. Dan will be modding my Oppo (whther it's an SE or original, dunno until the SE surfaces) and I have 100% confidence it will be a stellar player and a good investment. Dan is already aware of the Sabre32 chips and is simply waiting to see if they (Opp/Nuforce) have done anything else that would cause his establish Oppo 83 mod to need a tweek or redesign.
