I almost never use my DVD changer, partially because it's got ridiculously long load times. I know most of you have BD already, but can anyone recommend a universal player that has fast load times? I'm looking for SACD/DVD-A/DVD-V.

Idle speculation, really, but...

Also the remote on my changer blows--there's no way to ff/rewind without holding down the skip buttons. Thanks, Yamaha. This defect continues to universal remotes.

OPPO BDP-83 is the ticket. Excellent performance all around including load times. World class product IMO.

What is considered to be a "fast" load time?

The Integra that I suggested you buy a few years ago loads fasterthanhell. I still use mine daily too. Na-Na-Na-Na-Na

Although, I have to admit that the PS3 is crazy fast. Uglier than a dirt fence, but it's fast.

The Oppo BD 83 is almost as fast as the PS3.

I'm kind of curious how fast my computer will load Blu-rays whenever I get around to buying a Blu-ray drive for it. But yeah, I use both the OPPO BDP-83 and PS3 for Blu-ray watching, and they're both fast enough that I don't hate life when using them. It can vary quite a lot depending on the disc, though.

The thing I want to be faster is HDMI handshaking. I realize my TV and Integra processor are holding me back. I'm just wondering how much faster devices are now. It would be nice if every device had an easy-to-find HDMI handshaking speed spec.

D'oh. I knew I should have gotten the Integra/Onkyo. Dammit.

I don't have a PS3 but I have read some load time tests that compare the two that say the complete opposite.

Panasonic units are very good but they don't do SACD and DVD-A.
