...From my conversations with OPPO, they seem to me to be far more focused on getting it right than in getting it out by any specific date. (That's my take anyway.)
Personally, I'd be surprised to see it on dealer shelves before the end of the year; but, if it happens, that'd be great.
Getting it right? That's exactly as I'd recommend. Rushed products sound bad more often than not. I wouldn't be surprised if Oppo® had the PM-1 launch slip to mid-February 2014.
