    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    Sorry to hear, John. Had no idea you actually bought one. _Man_

    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    Wait! Given all that, why would you want us to support/buy Reavon in your previous post??? :P But thanks for alerting us of all this though. Definitely makes me think their players are not worthwhile at all. Thankfully, my 2 old Oppos are still perfectly fine so far... _Man_

    LOL! Does that new guy work for Reavon or something? :P;) For the longest time, I wanted SACD (and BD-A) to do well and make it, but... it's probably mostly over now that hirez audio has gone mainstream streaming w/ Apple Music, et al. Yes, I'm a classical music lover (w/ occasional jazz...

    No idea why they do that for 4K players these days, but the Sony X700 is like that w/ some of its display settings as well -- and presumably, all Sony and Panny 4K players are like that... though I haven't bothered to check that for my Panny 420. Yes, quite annoying that. _Man_

    No idea about the mechanics side of such, but lasers do have limited lifespans AFAIK, so I wouldn't generally want to have the laser running on idle for very long on a regular basis as that could significantly shorten its lifespan me thinks... Once in a while (like maybe once a week or month or...

    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    With so many formats to cover (on top of region-free BD/DVD playback, if that's desired/needed), not crazy at all to settle for a duo-player setup instead of insisting on single, universal player. IF anything, it may be crazy to insist the latter and still want top quality across the board...

    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    Except the Panny is probably waaay better at the most important function of such a player, ie. 4K/HDR disc playback w/ its best-in-class tonemapping... The other extra bells and whistles are nice to have for sure, but doesn't replace actual quality playback/results though... That's why I...

    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    Honestly, I don't see why they're charging that much more just for adding SACD playback, especially just in digital domain w/out quality analog out. IMHO, $800 for the X100 was too high already for what the player does (and its spartan build)... It's not even like they can claim some esoteric...

    I'd like to do that myself, but haven't really looked into how... _Man_

    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    I'm guessing this is not unlike the whole (virtually "religious") analog vs digital (or tubes vs solid-state) debate... and is probably quite similar down to the technical aspects, not just the spirit of it... Didn't some folks mod/upgrade the old Oppo 95s and 105s (and maybe also 205s) to...

    Reavon UBR-X200 4K UHD Universal Disc Player

    I think if both my Oppo 103 and 95 died (and can't be fixed anymore), I'd probably just buy another 103 on the used market instead -- a tad expensive for used (though not too much so for well-cared-for, quality used gear), but seems like one could often enough find one for ~$250-300. I paid the...
