Years ago I bought my first all zone all region blu ray player from an online seller who has since closed its doors - somewhere I found my invoice and it was less than $60 US to deliver a Momitsu 899 BDP... and I do not remember paying any customs/duty...

However I cannot find this BDP anywhere in my two bedroom suite.

Cheers Simon

I would need to be able to modify this 205 to play zone B disks or it would not be worth my buying, as my OPPO 83SE still works...

They will still charge Canadien taxes, which is all the duty you pay if you, yourself, bring it over the border. You can save over $100 if you live close to the border. Never ever use UPS or FEDEX to bring anything over the border for you, they are a huge cost for thier unnecessary border brokage fees.

As for spending an extra $100 to buy Canadien, TJFS

FYI: In my email today...

"The UDP-205 sells for $1779 CAD, with low-cost shipping to your door from right here in Ontario, no additional duties or cross-border fees, and complete In-Canada after-sale service and warranty support through us at Solutions A/V.

Please also note that any orders placed through our online store must ship out, per our policies, and cannot be held for in store pickup. We will be scheduling appointments for in-store pickups likely late May or early June. Let be us know if you would like to be notified once we finalize those dates. Also, at this point, we are not taking any trade-ins."

Too bad about the 'no trade-ins'.

Actually that $1779 CAN is probably a pretty good price. Wow Oppos aren't exactly cheap anymore

That's pretty close to what I paid for my 105D about a year and a bit ago.

seems to be lots of bugs with the 203,looking at threads on AVS.
I still use my 95 and no problems.
Will wait to see what develops with users in the next few months with the 205.
