I'm still interested in knowing what components in a player are involved in playing back data files. I don't believe I have ever seen any information on this.
I don't know where you read "the JVC VX BP-1 has set the standard for starting time, and the figures for the Oppo 83 are signifcantly slower than the JVC."
I own both players and this is from my post #250, dated 06/06/09 in the JVC-XBBP1 Owners Thread:
The Oppo speed tests versus the JVC using the Dark Knight blu-ray. The JVC times are in blue
and the Oppo times in black. Also, times are in seconds unless otherwise noted:
ALL ARE FROM A TRAY OPEN POSITION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TEST 4
to Piracy Screen - 20
- to Warner Brother logo - 32, 28
- to beginning of movie - 1:13, 1:07
- Power on disc in tray to start of movie - 1:26, 1:18
All times were consistent and repeatable. However, different media may yield different results. That said; it's the closet I've experienced with times comparable to my Oppo as far as speed depending on the media.
