There's really no way that I simply pay the shipment and the trouble to send it to EU straight?

Congratulations to erwinbel who wins the BDP-83SE OPPO Blu-ray Player!
Can you tell me from where the Oppo will be sent? I think I will contact FedEx directly and have them receive and send me the player, since this would be the easiest method.

WOW!!! This is awesome. I was in Vegas when I got the notification, but didn't have a chance to log in until today. Talk about luck. Can't wait to get it hooked up, now I need to win the Emotiva. hahahahaa

Ok, so NOW the question we're all asking ourselves is, 'What did he win in Vegas?????'

Re: Congratulations to our OPPO Blu-ray Player Winners!

The FedEx Belgium offices are only open during week days, so I suppose they will respond to my e-mail tomorrow.

But I have an even better idea: to have it sent to NuForce to have it upgraded. You know, the Oppo 83 was already on my list to be used in the HT in our new house we are building:
Attachment 25296
My brother-in-law having lunch where the screen will be...

The set-up (with Emotiva amps, B&W speakers and twin DIY Maelstrom LLT SW) would benefit from the slightly superior analogue outputs of the NuForce, don't you think? If I do it, it has to be done now, while it is still in the USA.

I have sent NuForce a request and hope they ship to EU (why wouldn't they?).

OTOH, I also have the Emotiva XDA-1 (2ch DAC) on pre-order, which would make the NE upgrade useless if I keep the XDA-1 in the same set-up (for CD playback) and that's not certain.

Cool!
NuForce will probably have received the 83SE for me too. They need 2-3 working days for the upgrade. They also provide the multiregion mod!

As anticipated, NuForce received the Oppo, just got the word...

Re: Congratulations to our OPPO Blu-ray Player Winners!

It's a little late but... Congratulations to the winners! May your Oppo players be well used and loved. I had an Oppo dvd player that upscaled. I gave it to my dad as part of the package with my old 42" tv when I moved. I miss that Oppo player. I didn't win, so I'll have to save up for one of those fancy blu-ray players myself. Regardless, congrats again to the winners!!

Re: Congratulations to our OPPO Blu-ray Player Winners!

Folks,

Just to let everyone know that the Oppo arrived today. The BDP-83SE was first sent to Nuforce for the NE upgrade and a region free cable instalment. FedEx tried to deLiver last week, but I wasn't home. Called them this morning and it's here! I will hook it up in the weekend (busy busy!). The value for duties and VAT is the amount for the upgrade and shipment from USA to EU. No VAT and duties on the player! Cool! Don't tell anyone!

Just a great thanks to the Shack folks, especially Sonny for the help with the shipment info. And a big hurray for Oppo! I was going to purchase an Oppo anyway, when our HT in the new house would be ready...

If the 83SE NE sounds as good as my Njoetjoeb CD player (costed 1,600 euro), I will sell that one to make up for the investment in the NE upgrade!

PS, my e-mail is malfunctioning. New provider, new passwords, hell! I will try to solve it asap.
