I personally don't know why anyone would buy the Cambridge BD player and not the Oppo as the Cambridge has a awful remote and is not avalible as a Multi-region deck for DVD/BD without invalidating your warrantry as where the Oppo is.
My usefull posts How To Calibrate Your TV
My understanding is that any hardware mod on even the Oppo invalidates the warranty.
You can always install this, which won't invalidate warranty:

I got my Oppo via a autherised Oppo dealer fully multi-region complete with a 2 year Warrantry BB as where the only place you can get the Cambridge BD players is Richer Sounds who don't offer a multi-Region for BD. And have you seen the Cambridge remote?? it looks like it belongs to a £20 DVD player!!!
Oppo dealers put the same mod kit I have linked above which doesn't invalidate warranty as the kit can be easily removed. Oppo itself does not sell multiregion versions.

No I haven't seen the remote. In any case, I won't be concerned about remote quality as I've got Logitech Harmony One. It is another matter that the Cambridge Audio player will not be on my list for purchase.
But it is indeed useful for other members to know, who are in the market for a new player.
i have always wondered about this - the on screen menu's etc look almost identical. Anyone know if you could flash the cambridge audio firmware on an Oppo? Im not sure but can you play .iso files on the Cambridge players? Oppo removed the feature a while back and i havent updated by player since as i use it a bit, but i'd like to upgrade to get more compatibility with newer discs plus the ability to control the Oppo via my smart phone
