Just ordered a BD-UP5000 from *******. Hope they really do start arriving in a couple of weeks. Would be very nice to have it by the end of the year at least. ******* had the lowest total price with their holiday special and including 3-day FedX shpg. And zero interest for one year with their CC. Some of the companies charge tax even for out of state orders. BBB, Amazon. Even saved a few bucks over BBB's best total and got faster shpg. Of course now which company gets their delivery first?
Now I would really like to replace my modded Angstrom 100 surround sound unit so I can enjoy the new audio formats. It doesn't have an analog throughput little-lone 8 ch's. Cancelled my order for the Integra DTC-9.8 as I've been hearing that the sound quality won't be up to my normal sound experience. Just need an 8 channel preamp with remote volume and ch. trims for now. Later upgrade to an external processor when some of the high end companies start making them. Might needed to build something for now or maybe the Integra/Onkyo would be a decent enough unit to get by for a year until others come out. Not sure what I'm going to do for a preamp right now!
