I don't know about the G series gear, but I sold a lot of 586's and they all had transport problems. It was a real headache explaining to customers why they spent so much on Meridian DVD player.

Got an Oppo BDP95 because I needed the component outputs for my older gear. It would have been 700 to fix the power supply on the G98 and for 995 I got one of the last Oppo BDP95's available. I have had the unit for a couple of months and have noticed a slight difference when listening to redbook CD's and when streaming Pandora. The G98 had a softer more laid back sound where the BDP95 seems more in my face and a bit more etched sounding. Hard to describe - as I believe the BDP95 is very good sounding, especially on DVD-A discs. Something about the Meridian seemed like it was more true to the recording but it may be that I was just used to the sound. Has anyone else felt this way?
