Yeah Joe, I also signed up for that months ago. Got the email Wed or Thurs I think. Not really the best time for me to be dropping $1,332.00 (That's with shipping), but their warning of availability through July 4th only did not give me much of a chance to ponder on it.
I suppose I will either be moving the BPD-105 from the main Living room down to the big speaker system with the PL's (replacing a 1990's 6-disc magazine Pioneer CD changer), or find someone with discerning ears that could use the Universal Hi-Fi player. (For a price obviously. Not giving away the farm here).
But here's the big kicker on ME unfortunately............I don't even own a UHD TV yet. I'm just here to rock out to the audiophile reference like sound.
Do we know if they are having another run? Or was this literally their final production release? I responded same day as the email came out with the fear this would happen. The ol' lady gave me the snake eye when I did it because of the cost; but I was afraid of this. I thought signing up reserved you on the list and you could opt-out for your chance once it was available to you specifically but they did the whole first-come-first served routine regardless of the special link they gave you.
I'll sell you a Non-UHD Oppo Lee? I'd rather have it to a discerning ear than sell to someone I don't think would appreciate it.
Lee Iâ€™ll set it aside with you in mind first. I hope you snap the one up in August. If anything it gives everyone some breathing room to save up for it again. Nobody knew if there would be another run or not. Thatâ€™s the risk ya take. Supply and Demand wins every time.
