    Is it vaporware or is it here? CA Azur 650BD

    Just wondering if it's available and what people thought of it. I have a Oppo BDP-83 on its way back to the manufacturer, so I still have the option to switch. Here's CA's write-up of it:

    There a bit of buz online about the DACs on the CA being of a lower-level, but that doesn't necessarily mean the player will sound less good. Sometimes synergy is a bigger factor. Anyhow just wondering.

    I would love to see a direct comparison and review to the Oppo. The Oppo's BR and DVD picture would be hard to beat! My reason to get the Oppo is because of its highly rated BR and DVD play back and decent SACD play.

    I've been on the lookout for their top of the line 640R receiver replacement which was announced to come out back in May. well, it still ain't out, but should be arriving very soon. Here it is:

    It features all the BR codecs & autocalibration. My guess is price will be between 1000 and 1500USD.
