Maybe by the time we get together I will have the oppo-83 as I think I am going to get one instead of a PS3 or any other BR player. I am not too happy with the load times ( a good minute) of the BDP1600 I picked up on boxing day.

They are available and I have talked to Brent and he has told me I have one on the way and I don't know when the other one will ship. If what Steve says about the performance of the new amp is true I will be very happy (not that I'm sad right now either) man \:\)

I'm happy with my OPPO. Great load times. Plays all my disks. (SACD, DVD-A, DVD, CD) If your interested in Netflex I doubt the OPPO will be getting that feature in the near future but you never know.

Jay, if your just going to use the player for DVD's and Blurays I wouldn't worry about the load times too much. If you plan on getting SACD's and DVD-A's I'd opt for the OPPO.

I would like to get into multi-channel music but it is not a requirement for me at the momment, no discs as of yet thus no player needed or is it the other way around? I think part of me just wants to be able to say I have an Oppo for a dvd/BR player

Hi jakewash and Doj Dewd, I'm also in Calgary and I was wondering if I'd be able to get in on your audition. I'm looking to purchase some m60s or 80s, a vp150, either an ep350 or 500 or possibly larger and the dipole rears. I'm especially interested in hearing your sub as I don't have a large theater room and I'm not sure which size to get. Let me know if this is a possibility!
Thanks,
John

Actually they are not dipole, but a quadpolar design... \:\)

Axiom can call them what they wish but the standard definition of a bipole speaker is a speaker with 2 or more drivers facing in different directions all firing in phase. So more accurately they are bipole speakers with 4 drivers. Which is one of the reasons when someone calls them “quadrapolar” in other forums many people don’t know what it means.

Made my point perfectly. “Axiom can call them what they want . . . .” ;\)

Hi John, I am currently in moving mode, new home!!!, but in a week or 2 I should be able to give you an audition of M22s, M80s, VP100 and 150 and the QS8s. My sub is an SVS PB13 Ultra. Maybe if the timing is right the 3 of us could get together for an afternoon \:\)
