It's all good. Time flies, and there's not enough time to get to everything and give it all justice. I know I didn't see nearly as much as I would have liked to.

Did you manage to get over to the high performance section by the Omni? I checked out Alcons Audio over there and High efficiency designs with horn-loaded pro ribbon tweeters. They were playing crazy loud (I left after about five minutes in the interest of protecting my hearing), but it was clean as a whistle and sounded amazing.
I hit some of it (not that room, tho). Sometimes talking with a PR person can soak-up 45 min of time... and they all want to talk (which is great, but it makes it really hard to efficiently dig through everything).

Some further information on OPPO's new players: both will play SACD and DVD-Audio!

Re: CEDIA 2016 Wrap: Day 2

I'm a bit surprised at the price increase. I always anticipated getting an Oppo for my HT, but it looks like they are adding $100 to the base price. I may have to look further into the X-Box 1. I can get that (through my employee discount program) for $300 (500GB HD). Microsoft claims it will play 4K + HDR. That will be half the price...! Anybody have one of these?

I'm not. Look what they charge for their current blu ray players vs the competition. Who charges even close to $500 for blu ray these days?

CEDIA 2016 Wrap: Day 2

True, but it's looking like the base OPPO model is going to hit the ground running for less than Panasonic and Sony.

Speaking purely from what I've heard, unlike Blu-ray (where Blu-ray players are pretty much on equal footing when considering video output quality, across the board), 4K Blu-ray players are complex enough on the processing side that we are going to see differences (at least initially). So, this might be a case where the extra coin is truly worth better PQ.

Re: CEDIA 2016 Wrap: Day 2

I agree, but that is why I will have to research the X-Box 1. I'm expecting it to do a very good job as a 4K player...but I'm just purely guessing. I can imagine that 4K games are going to be stunning, which should mean very good internals.

I know everybody else is expensive with the new tech. It's just that Oppo has always stuck to that $500 price point, so that is what I was expecting. We will see how it affects their sales.

Re: CEDIA 2016 Wrap: Day 2

Well... it says it supports HDR on both Streaming and Blu-ray... that could prove to be a nice double feature!
