    I bought this the other hoping that EIV had solved the problem and they? Have they begger!
    Drops out twice as far i can tell in approx 41 and 45 minutes (not the exact times but around that). Has anyone bought one of these from this region and find it has no problems as it may be still some of the 'bad' batch or could be that they couldnt care and decided not to rectify the problem.

    Also i hear that the region 3 is the best as its got DTS 24/96 (if thats correct) but my yamaha amp doesnt support this so will i still get standard DTS if i get this region and where is the best place to get this version.

    Cost is another factor, i got the region 2 copy for £9.97 from music zone :thumbsup: (just a major bummer it still dropsout).

    Anyhelp on the above would be great.
    Thanks

    Cd-wow are probably one the best e-tailers out there. Don't worry you'll have no problems.
