Hi Daniel, Chuck, Spaceman and RT! Thanks for popping in guys.
Daniel, I've got a Harmony 900 remote that has a RF to IR extender / blaster. The receiver and transmitter is ontop of my ticket booth. All my gadgets, electronics and even my masking system will be programmed into the Harmony. So far it works great!
Wow Chuck, your Showing Now shelve looks GREAT buddy! It is just that something special to wow your guests with - very, very nice
Spaceman, I'll take some pics when I get to make it a bit "neater" in the equipment room.
I cheated a bit with the paintjob - I got very "gatvol" when I was doing the shelves, so I didn't do a very nice paintjob but I'll post some pics for you as soon as I can.
RT, so far I'm VERY, VERY happy with my 3010. I can't believe that I actually have one! I has been a dream for so long to one day have all the equipment that I wanted for the HT. I've been reading up one EVERY new model that came out each year, saying to myself, THIS is the one I want for my HT, and then the next model comes out, and again, THIS is the one I want
Paired with the Monitor Audio speakers, it sound very nice (to my ears at least). I want the Oppo for exactly the same reason as you. Since I have a LOT of DVD's, I want something with great upscaling ability and the Oppo seems to be the best around. It's just so bloody difficult the get hold of one here in SA. The only guy that is an authorised dealer here sells them for about R10500-00 - that's about $1235-00
But what can I do? Maybe you must come to visit me here in SA and then you can bring me one in you hand luggage
As you might know, the Oppo 103 is comming out now sometime. The price should hopefully stay the same, but as I know how things work here in SA, we would be happy to receive in in Desember, if not later.
