Absolute Sound - do we really need another review like this?


I own the OPPPO 105 player purchased 3 years ago and still very satisfied with it.
There are TONS and TONS of glowing reviews of this unit and apparently oppo is working on a replacement model.

In this current february 2017 issue is Absolute Sound, there is yet another review (a brief one) on this unit.

Kind of long in the tooth and totally futile. Sounds like the following Scenario:

oppo: hi stereophile, look, we are still a few months away from putting out the 105 replacement, could you run something just so that we can keep the flame alive before the new model come out?


 Sorry but that went trough my head reading this review of the still-stellar and reviewed to death Oppo 105.

Cheers all !

You start off the post saying The Absolute Sound did this (which they did last issue), then continue on to blame Stereophile magazine.  What gives?
......do we really need another discussion like this?
You are absolutely CORRECT! My apologies, got the two magz mixed up. (maybe it is a sign they are much alike!) I was referring to Absolute Sound of course, and I have NO idea why this thread was published twice...I am a longtime member, way past the "newbie" designation with forums....
tpreaves....." do we really need another discussion like this? "

That was exactly my point concerning this yet other Oppo 105 player. Nothing really new in that review, it has been reviewed to death.
