Ridiculous. It doesn't even have DACs for analog output, which means that it has absolutely nothing to justify the premium price tag.

It appears to be an OPPO player in a fancier-looking chassis.

Theta has always been a bogus boutique brand, but this takes their scam to a new level.

Agreed. The newest Qdeo processor is in the Oppo as well, and they manage to find enough couch-change kickin around to include a couple of ESS Sabre32's , which while not as good as a super expensive stand alone DAC are nothing to sneeze at. The perfect video thing really is not saying much as I think not only the latest 103/105 are perfect video, but the previous generation of Oppo's the 95's were also bit for bit perfect weren't they ?

Looking closer it appears to be EXACTLY the same front as my BDP-105. Although on the back it shows a fan and my 105 is fanless

A digital format being sent down a digital cable can't possibly be better on a $4K player, sorry.

Any new blu-ray player released nowaday must have Cinavia, it's not an option.

A lot of Blu-ray players are, including all Oppo models ever.
