Arcam 411 BD Player: How Long Will Parts Be Available?
I have the Oppo 95; very good analog sound quality, though I think the Cambridge 650BD I had for nine years, that got bricked when replacement decoder boards all vanished, sounded considerably better, at least through the analog unbalanced outputs.
But I want a second player and ONLY the Arcam 411p has all the features I want. LOL but I take slow motion and advanced zoom control very seriously for DVDs (and those few BDs that don’t disable the player’s slo mo and zoom, thanks to the BD Assn’s standardized Oracle BD-J authoring platform). All Oppos do zoom but except for my trusty JVC XV-NA70BK DVD player from 2004, only the Arcam 411 allows you to move the zoomed movie image around to "center" any part of it on the screen.
But now that Arcam has discontinued their entire BD player line how many years will critical replacement parts be available? And who, if anyone reputable, even services Arcam BD players in North America?
OTOH, if someone knows of a BD player, 4K or not, that does slow motion and zoom the way I want it please let me know ASAP!
