SPL meters seem to be the tool of choice for most when level matching or setting levels so I personally found no flaw is his evaluation of all the transports.
It seems like his tool of choice is being attacked because some may not like his preference for the Oppo.
I wonder what would have happened had he preferred the Sony.
That's a good way to perceive something that you are not sure of. Now only if he displays the same humbleness...
I don't see why he would need to show some humbleness.
I've learned so much from the various threads I frequent since I joined the AVS Forum. Unfortunately, I have also learned that many are insecure about their purchases and attack other products and look for affirmation of their purchases.
I presently have an Oppo BDP-95, Sony BDP-S5000ES, Pioneer Elite BDP-05FD and a Yamaha DVD-S1800 in my main setup and briefly owned a Denon DVD-3800BDCI and the mention of an Oppo product bring such visceral from some of the other thread owners, which is comical to me.
