    I've not, but it looks sweet.
    The kind of thing I was hoping would take Oppos spot. If all they say about it is true, of course.

    Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    As soon as it starts shipping, I am going to e-mail UPS and DEMAND a review. ;)

    I'm sure one will cross my hands and I'll post a review of it. I may even buy one if it's as good as I'm hoping. The Oppo 203 is an incredible player and I'm completely happy with it but as of right now the first time in my history of Audio video I do not have a single Pioneer Elite piece in my system. That kinda bothers me.

  • I'm still breaking in my BDP 85FD and now this. What I noticed that there is no mention of upconverting to 4k like my 85..hmmm. Everything sounds about the same as the 85 in the build quality and being a universal player. If the price of 4k movies come down to reality levels I may give it a thought.

    I skipped the 85 after I installed one in a theater and it had some hand shake issues.

  • Mantis, I have add that issue a few times. I was not sure if it was the LX502, Vizio P55 or the 85, thanks for that info. I usually have to shut everything down then restart, but once it connects the PQ and SQ are awesome.
