So much for those who said the uhd disc market was dead and 2nd rate streaming was it :) Gotta love the testimonials on the reavon site 

Reavon UBR-X200 | REAVON

The 7.1ch outs are redundant on the dear one ..

"In Germany, UBR-X100 is listed for €800, while the UBR-X200 is double the price, at €1600. The new Blu-ray players are the only products in the Reavon catalogue right now, and they'll be available by April."

 

New company (unproven) at that price....... I'd be sitting this one out I think. 🙃

This is great news. More competition the better along with more options/choices to make. I will be interested in these units when available. I hope the uhd disc market never dies out. Nothing worse than relying on an internet connection to view a movie thinking your getting true 4k. Never been interested in relying on Netflix or the like for a big movie night. These disc spinners are the best for quality audio and video. Nothing worse than spending thousands of dollars on a projector and screen and have internet dictating terms as to your quality. Bring it on Reavon, i am waiting.😉

I just spoke to Reavon. Apparently "the product is not ready yet, as we are still working on it".

Interested to know how they got the reviews & testimonials then? :)

More speculation is these are Zidoo media player innards, with a transport added.

That would have to make sense, they could probably make money where Oppo couldn't if it's a high quality, all singing, all dancing media platform with intuitiuve streaming capabilities that can play a disc also, instead of the other way around.

What would really do it if its zappiti innards would be a capability that oppo once had ie ISO playback . Media players dont toe the hollywood line ; this would be unique 🙈

Looks remarkably like an Oppo...

It actually looks a lot more like the Panasonic UB9000

If it can do what parent company a zapitti does re other features and external subs great. If it is an oppo clone, I'm less interested. Kind of over others just rehashing old tech rather than any actual progress.

 

And if region unlock isn't available, no interest...

      Hi, 
       
      I'm new, my first post here, sorry if I missed something obvious, but I wonder why Emby isn't mentioned here. I did a search, nothing on Emby or Kodi, which seems odd.
       
      My 2c, I have bought and used many commercial media centres, and had given up on those after many playback and streaming issues some time ago and moved to Kodi.
       But Kodi, just kept having issues, not to mention requiring a fairly powerful box to drive it at decent speeds.
       
      I came across Emby (as it was a supported app on my LG tv) and after trialling it with no success, gave up, and went back to kodi, but more Kodi crashes later, I tried again. With the right playback options set, I now run Emby Server on an SBC (Odroid C2) and it streams everything from my 40TB NAS  to the LG TV, including 4K content in native format(s). The Tv plays then all, including DTS etc sound.
       
      In the movie room I have an AppleTV which also has the Emby App on it, to drive the JVC DLA1 projector and VAF 7.1 system, again, awesome.
       
      So far so good, and the WAF is high.
       
      Surely I'm not the only Emby user here?

      Hi friends
      I tried searching for a thread on this, but I was unsuccessful, so if it exists, please feel free to merge this..
      I've been trying to locate a region free BR player, and apart from the Laser Brand model, which I last bought 3 years ago, is there anything else?
      Is it really based on an old Sony model?
      It's also been harder to track this model down, but I was hoping there will be some other options?
      Preferably in NSW / Sydney..
       
      Thanks everyone

      Item:  Cary 303/200 HDCD/CD Player 230vac
      Location: Gosford Nsw 
      Price:  $1175.00
      Item Condition: Good
      Reason for selling: Retiring audiophile
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal plus fees COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This player has been highly modified by our own George Stantcheff  with the addition of triple stacked AD844 as I/V, as per the thread here on DIY Audio - http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/227677-using-ad844-20.html
       
      "Couple of days ago we compared my Cary 303/200 using just the I/V of the AD844, up against the Thorsten Losetch designed AMR CD77 (TDA1541 double crown) that uses Thorsten's special designed I/V stage which I believe is tube based, output impedance <100ohms, so a good match with the Lightspeed as is the Cary. I was expecting the AMR to be better, just by it's reputation and the designer behind it.
      3 of us within 20sec thought the Cary was a clear winner, top to bottom, front to back and side to side, and it remained that way for the rest of the session, the owner of the AMR was mute and stone faced and said nothing for the 1.5hrs of A/Bing, and probably saddened by the result, the listening session which went for 4hrs, the last 2.5hrs was the Cary only.
      The system was my Lightspeed Attenuator feeding 2 x Halcro DM-78 monoblocks (input impedance 100kohms) pushing a pair of Wilson Watt puppy 8's
      This proved what I've been hearing that this AD844 as an I/V is something very, very special when used as I've done with no feedback"
       
      This player is as close to "State of the Art" (if there's any such thing) as I've heard under $20k.  Due to the mods, the balanced connectors no longer operate. 

      Only being sold due to the owner of the last several years retiring from the hobby.
       
      Complete with orig remote & manual. Will pack & ship worldwide at buyers cost.
