I have a pair of PM-1 and HA-1 here for review. Got 'em yesterday. Out of the box, all I can say is that they're extremely robust products. I'll try and get some pics soon.

Unfortunately HA-1 is out of stock on Oppo website until end of May

Perhaps the entire first batch went out to reviewers.

Beta testers, but yeah. I won't be reviewing it, but I'm going to share opinions. There are people who will do a much better job at reviewing it than I can.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the beta testers got production run HA-1's did they?  In any event Oppo has a hit on their hands.   clap clap clap.....

 

Ops, I'm in the wrong thread  :o

Retail orders shipped first.

I actually have a production unit in hand, I am not a beta tester or anything, just submitted an order when the notification email arrived. 

 

I think do beta testers got pre-production units, I understand from that thread there have been some changes.  So if they really sold out makes you wonder how many units were ready to ship.

Still a bit off topic discussing HA-1 in this thread.   But good deal you got one from the first batch available.  :smile:

 

Can only assume a somewhat large quantity were initially ready after finalizing product design recently, production should ramp up now.   Oppo will not release sales data.  Yes there were some minor changes between last pre-production units and retail units.

UK & European Head-Fi members contemplating purchasing the PM-1, DO NOT do so until OPPO have implemented a fair price policy for us, as we should not be blatantly ripped off with the current dollar/pound price parity that penalises us because of where we live.

OPPO, I and many other European audiophiles want to buy the PM-1, but don't take the p*ss and think that you can rip us off with your discriminatory pricing.

Cheers,
Andy.

^^^^ Could not agree more, i'm truly sick of this, constantly being ripped off here in the UK! Really does make it hard to enjoy this hobby. It's not only them though we often see prices in pound equivilent to dollars which is an outrage!

Likewise here in Australia the PM-1 is selling for $1,699AUD and the HA-1 for $1,799AUD when the our dollar is at 0.94 USD.

 

What a ripoff!

post #1845 of 2487
Absolutely!

We European buyers understand that we may pay a bit more for American gear because of shipping and import taxes, but directly translating the dollar price into pounds on a 1 to 1 ratio is at best disingenuous and at worst blatant profiteering.

OPPO, all we ask is for a fair European price for the PM-1 and not the sickeningly expensive RRP currently quoted.

Thanks,
Andy.
