    Does anyone have any idea why this rather fine DVD spinner has yet to get a review in HCC? I keep on seeing the reviews in other mags, but it's the HCC one that I definitely want to see.

    Probably because nobody can afford it!

    Actually I can attest to the fact that lots of folk can afford it.

    I'd expect HCC will review it soon enough. Apart from foreign US publications I wouldn't particularily trust anyone else's anyway!

    Just got mine and I'm glad I can afford it [​IMG]

    This is just about the most amazing piece of kit I've come across.

    I'm waiting for my TMA processor to come back from its upgrade to EX and have just to content myself with listening to CDs using my old DAC and it's completely addictive. Trust me on this.

    I have Gordon to thank for pointing out on this forum what a quality player this is in terms of both CDs and DVDs (sorry mate, but I used my usual retailer in the Midlands for the demo and purchase) - I will probably never get time to watch all my movies over again, never mind listening to my entire CD collection, but that's now my aim [​IMG]

    This is an expensive piece of kit, but with fantastic support for upgrades either software or hardware to keep it up to date (NTSC progressive scan and DVD-audio being worked on) I think it will work out not so expensive when you consider the money you lose trying to sell obsolete gear secondhand.

    Welcome to the club. The DVD32R is fantastic and will be a standard bearer for a while to come, even without the planned upgrades. I believe it will be the player by which all others are compared against. (Just like the AV32R).

    I hope you will be very happy together.
