What’s up man? Yeah, Oppo is a perpetually reliable name and will likely continue that tradition for quite some time (until some heavy-hitting manufacturer steals all its execs..*gulp* ) Ah, looking at an Integra processor? You won’t be sorry—I guarantee! I see you’re located in MD—I am as well. If you want to demo an Integra before taking the plunge, let me know and you’re welcome to swing by. These processors do everything, and Audyssey MultiEQ XT32 alone is worth the price of admission. The thing is, they have one of the most complete feature sets on the market at any price point, but more importantly, they still manage to sound great!

Well done Matt, be sure to get some videos up of it in action; I'm definitely looking forward to it!
Oh yes indeed! It's essential to have a capable optical disc reader in any serious system. There are too many variables with computers; I do not think they are reliable as a one-source solution (although they are great for augmenting a system with an already capable disc player). I will definitely be shooting a follow-up to the Oppo BDP-105 video in which I cover the user interface, streaming from PCs, setting up the USB DAC, utilizing the MHL HDMI input with the Roku Streaming Stick, and a few other things. I love this 105!

I was considering the Cat-12’s truly, but I’ve decided to invest in more subwoofers from Seaton Sound, but my speakers—after much research—will be Legacy Audio. That Air Motion ribbon-tweeter, it if sounds anything like the other ribbons I’ve heard (I have a demo coming up in the new year), are a must have for me. I’m in contact with a dealer who’s willing to let me Demo them at his house (both the Focus SE and Signature SE models) and I am expecting great things.
To be sure, I will spend that week demoing high-end speakers so I have a good frame of “high end” reference.
How was your first Christmas in the new place?
