No noise from arcam ,about their new player yet,only a small bit on there web site .Has anybody heard anything yet.???
You would of thought that they would be shouting from the roof tops about how good it is.
pioneer lx 508d / arcam bdp100 / klyne 7 preamp / monachy power amp / kochel horn loaded speakers / xlo limited edition cables and power chords / russ andrews power block / chord hdmi cable
Just to say I have the AVR600 with the BDP300 and they both work perfectly together. However I did have 3 BDP100's before and they all failed to work properly for one reason or another over a 15 month period so I upgraded to the BDP300. Now the load speeds of the BDP300 are brilliant, really quick and the response from the remote excellent, the BDP300 does appear to be a totally different monster with different software and now appears to be a great investment after testing my patience to an extreme! Also to add you can now update it's firware from the internet direct and it appears to be multi-region which is all excellent news!
hi ,how's the picture is better than the bdp100,and how does strereo sound.many thanks david
Picture and sound is superb, I've not found a fault with it yet, totally different to the BDP100 which had soooo many issues! The best bit is the load speeds and response from the remote, both were diabolical on the BDP100, so very impressed with that...
Tempting, still living in hope for a professional review soon.
The Swedish "HemmaBio" magazine's issue No. 9 September 2012 has made a test.According to the test in the Home Theater magazine the ARCAM BDP 300 player got average rating. They take up examples as HDMI coulor Space, which Arcam not working quite optimally with.
The upsampling of chroma is done with a simple method called "nearest Neighbour". This is the method used in those cheap DVD players. So the players chroma upsampling performance are average and results in blocky/jagged colour contours.
But it got top ratings for sound on CD.
