Andrew perhaps you would like to give your piece on this.

People talking about the Oppo getting a bad review etc because of some type of ulterior motive, need I remind you the 95 received 5 star. The accusation is simply not justified, these are nothing more that consipracy theories.

Also, IMO that this Oppo 103 review will not appear in the online browsable verion under the section 

http://www.whathifi.com/reviews/home-cinema/blu-ray-players?page=1

I would love to be wrong in this prediction!

Why would you think that? Every review goes on the website, afaik.

It will appear, but not until the print magazine has been on sale for a while, as is usual.

And possibly, I'm told, in an extended form.

Thanks Andrew.

The Oppo review will definitely go online, just like every other review that appears in the magazine.

Interesting that Oppo advertises heavily on Home Cinema Choice and AVForums websites.   Smile

Why should that surprise you? If I'm the advertising division of Oppo, I would make sure I advertise in a site with a good review of my product. Also, I'll target my adverts where I know people love my product. Oppo has been popular with AV forum members even before they were officially sold in the UK or were reviewed by AV forums.

Will whathifi ever adjust the review in light fo such an outcry? A second opinion of such?

What I dont understand is why they make premium Blu Ray players with on board decoding. Does anybody ever use it? I can understand in the old days before we all had nice AV receivers and used HDMI but really its just a wast of money.

 

Some of the highest and higher end systems you can buy today require the decoding to be done within the player - Audiolab, Meridian etc

 

So please review blu ray performance this way too Smile

WHF did drop a star on a Sony TV after numerous complaints on the forum. Don't think it'll work the other way though.

That is because there was something wrong with the Sony TVs though, nothing wrong with the Oppo just not that good.

Would hardly class a handful of posters harping on for 19 pages over an subjective review as an outcry.
