Thanks again, Bill.
I figured that Cinavia would be a standard "feature" from now on.
I'm not saying that Oppo should stop production of its "luxury" models that have every bell, whistle and a kitchen sink.
What I said is to "add to the line" the BDP-101 that, again, has Oppo's fantastic video features. Without all the analog audio circuitry of the luxury units, Oppo should
be able to sell the thing for around $200 and still make a healthy profit, don't you think? I think they'd attract video enthusiasts who are not necessarily audiophiles and sell very briskly. Sign me up for one right now.
