But really, what point is there in keeping this thread going when there's no new news? Reviews take time to write...

 

I think Currawong is Big Brother for the time being. Anakchan said he's heading on vacation for a week or so.

Waiting for AnakChan to return...

 

I might need his protection.   :p

Gentleman, start your engines.  Just got the following email.

 

Thank you for your interest in the OPPO PM-1 Planar Magnetic Headphones. You are receiving this e-mail because you registered to be notified of the PM-1’s availability. We are currently accepting orders for the PM-1 and expect to begin shipping on Monday, April 14th. Initial availability is limited. For your convenience, you can use the following link to place your order:

Ummm... only found out the price now, when the email about the pre orders came. And wow it's quite a bit more expensive than I thought it would be. Of course it is the kind of the price that is placed on a flagship product, but personally as I have not yet owned a headphone of a similar price. However, I'm still upbeat about it since there were a couple of posts on the PM-2 so, I might be getting those instead.

The PM-1 is now available for online ordering

I hope Oppo's Australian website gets the model soon either for pre-order or purchase - would suck if all of them sold out before they had any here. As the PM-1 is 1099 USD I won't import it due to tax/fees,

I just ordered....hope I got through in time :blink:

Those are some good impressions, with a couple quick comparisons. The way he's describing them so far, it almost sounds like a more resolving HD650 (but I could always be reading it wrong in the hopes that it fits my preferred sound signature).

Been reading these Oppo threads with much anticipation (lurking)

 

Went ahead and placed an order, will cost me a bit extra due to various fees as I am in Australia, billing and shipping need to be US!

 

Anyway, couldn't resist. Hope its worth it!

 

My personal sound preference is with LCD-3 / Abyss style, I do not like the HD 800's at all. Fingers crossed these work out for me!!

 

Best of luck to other early adopters too

30 days return FTW :)

 

To be honest...if they sound in the ballpark of LCD-2s without the weight and discomfort I'll be happy with them.

I have my email to order. 

 

They look beautiful but at $1100 a serious buy, and totally agree with Focker when I see reviews from seasoned, but not professional reviewers roll in I'll be more serious about a purchase, assuming the reviews are +.
