I love this amplifier! It is light years from my last, my speaker have never sounded so good.

It’s hard to describe but clarity on the top end and bass is perhaps 15% better overall, but the real difference is in the musicality.
everything is so much more alive, you can get into the music much more.

I came in to grab the Techlink HDMI cable on Saturday
I thought I would let you know it works perfectly!
I can set my TV and PS4 to Full 60HZ 4:2:0 3840×2160 Full RGB with no issues.FYI: This was the 6th brand of cable I tried over the past week so I was a little worried It wouldn’t work, but I am super happy the issue is now resolved.

I will be letting everyone know where they should get their cables from 🙂

Thanks again for all your help.

I came in a few weeks ago and purchased an hdmi converter, speaker selector and the below Definitive Technology ceiling speakers. Our renovations are nearly completed and I installed these speakers last night.

Wow, these speakers are something else. I have one in the kitchen and one in the living room (I also have Klipsch in-wall in the lounge). The sound they produce is excellent!

I’ll be hoping to pop in this Saturday as I need to look at sub options.

Cheers

Our AVR amp stopped outputting sound. Once contacted Deano acted quickly to organise the repair.

Once the unit was inspected the repairer informed us that a replacement part had to be imported from Japan and the expected repair job 2 – 3 weeks.

The repair company offered a replacement amp for the duration which my family and I appreciate very much indeed. That’s going above and beyond I reckon.

Thank you Deano for all your after sales support, the AVR amp is back where it belongs and performing beautifully.

Purchased a Perreaux VP3 Phono Pre from Rapallo. Got expert advice from Deano, a VP3 owner himself. The whole experience was perfect and Deanos knowledge of Vinyl is without peer. Item was delivered swiftly and Deano kept me up to date along the way. He even provided me with the correct dip switch settings to match my Turntable/Cartridge combo. Impressive service to say the least.

The dual svs sb-2000 are in.
Tested them with the opening of “edge of tomorrow”
Bass so low it almost made you feel sick.
Needless to say I’ve been finding every bass track I can to put a smile on my face.
Many thanks

I am totally grateful to the amazing team at Rapallo NZ for their amazing work in overseeing the safe delivery of Riva

Over the last few years the team at Rapallo have helped me turn a basement into a home theater that really is a better experience visually and sonically than going out to the movies! Bart and Deano have helped me demo many projectors, speakers and AV receivers and let me take my time to research and make a decision. Suffice to say I always end up coming back time and again for great service, great prices and a good chat about home AV!

Hi Bart, just wanted to say a big thank you for selling me the screen and for your service with delivery / manual etc!

I set it up over the weekend – probably needed a bit more room to do that, than in my small lounge 🙂 and the colours are great, the blacks are black and having the extra 200mm in height and 500mm in width when watching widescreen movies makes a HUGE difference in presence and engagement with the movie by filling a lot of my peripheral vision…. I may never leave the room again! (Except to write the occasional email of course).

I love the subwoofer you guys sold me. Best I have ever had. Still scares me from time to time because I think it is another earthquake. But it really is impressive and I am even more impressed that, unlike our old subwoofer, this one is not even heard by our neighbours! Thank you!

, just wanted to let you know so far the clarity and the detail of the Elac’s have been a definite step up from the wharefdales, I’m hearing things I’ve never noticed before, your right though a decent sub would help flesh them out. I’ll put that on the list for the next couple of months. Thanks for the recommendations.

Graham was very fastidious with his work – which was of great assistance to myself as I had to manage the project from our head office in Wellington.
The end result was exactly as we had envisioned, and I feel that Graham went above and beyond to optimise our AV requirements and all of this within budget.
I would happily recommend Graham, and would certainly utilise his skills if needed for future projects.

The 2Qute Dac is very good, and after running in, is an improvement on my cherished Marantz SACD player and Classe preamp/dac.
I must highlight that running it in for almost 2 weeks is important because it results in a more musical continuous sound.

I took the leap of faith as you know. And the results, once I figured out how to sort all my cabling and settings, are truly wonderful. I’m running the Darbee Hi-Res at 70% and the images are beautifully clear. The sound is noticeably clearer… I have it running straight through my Yamaha receiver, letting the Oppo do all the work. Awesome stuff.

Thanks again, Pete

Thanks guys for the excellent service you provided to get a replacement subwoofer to me for our lecture room with short notice.

The unit replaced a Nuance subwoofer which I had always loved, but the new replacement you suggested is so good, I have used it to replace my home subwoofer.

I can’t believe how the technology has changed in the last 12 years or so.

I am so impressed by your service – have been with everything I have every purchased from you. I just wish I needed more stuff so I could keep buying from you.

Best wishes and season greetings to you all!

I recently purchased a wireless audio receiver from Rapallo. Knowledgeable and friendly staff were able to make recommendations on the various options that were available. They were able to source for me a loss-less wireless receiver that was not otherwise available in NZ. They were able to supply it quickly and at a great price. It really sounds great and I have ended up with a much better product than i otherwise would have purchased. I’m very happy.

I would highly recommend for great knowledge, excellent service and highly competitive price. Will shop again

Thanks a lot for the service with your generosity and guidance..The cable has opened a different musical dimension altogether, the experiment was a great success. The new cable used exclusively from the Fatman tube amp 4 ohms taps to HF inputs of the B&G planar radials, and the LF’s of B&G and the Dynaudio from 8 ohms taps of Mcintosh 6700.

I have dealt with Rapallo multiple times over the years and have always had excellent service and backup from them. The advice they give seem more ‘practically-minded’ with more emphasis on ensuring you get the product you need rather than simply making a sale. Though I traditionally like to support bricks and mortar shopping, this is a clear and worthwhile exception to the rule when it comes to AV products.

I Like doing business with RapalloAV….they have a good customer relations/service…this is my second time to purchased an item with RapalloAV..At first i ordered a non powered Hdmi splitter and it doesnt work (i think this is due to my avr having handshke problem) so contacted Paul (very good guy) about it we try to resolve the issue at no avail, so i send the first item back to be replaced with a powered one..with no glitch the powered one works flawlessy now iam up and running…delivery is speedy and they are willing to help to sort the issue/problem..iam happy to do business again with RapalloAV…Happy to recommend..

Thanks RapalloAV

Well, finally reorganised my sound system – waiting on furniture modifications. Sub-woofer turned out to be the hardest part to calibrate – documentation suggested turning volume to between 10 – 2 o’clock, so set it to 10. Onkyo calibration system couldn’t find it. Wound it around to 2 and finally the Onkyo AVR detected it. Will try using the DVE calibration system as well, as I’m not convinced its in the right place.
Banana plugs not needed – turns out there is a disconnect between Onkyo production unit and their marketing unit. Original documentation I read indicated that the speaker input catered for banana plugs (hole in screw head) and bare wire. Considered banana plugs to be the better choice, but forced to use bare wire as that is all the Onkyo could handle.
Optical cable working as expected and TV bracket well-made.
Considered the repackaging of the small items into the TV bracket packet to be smart.

I’ve been a long time customer of Rapallo and have purchased a number of quality components and speaker systems from them. Their extensive range and selection combined with expedient delivery is a deal maker, but I’ve also had extremely satisfying support in the rare instance that there’s been a mechanical glitch with any of the equipment. My most recent request was having to do with a erratic remote control unit for an Oppo Blu-ray player. I contacted customer service and rather than obsessing with purchase dates and responsibilities, their service rep named Gavin just solved the problem to my complete satisfaction. There’s no real choice for me as far as professional service during the purchase as well as the all important follow-up customer support. Well done Rapallo and thanks again Gavin.

However, I got great on line help and suggestions from the team and decided to upgrade to a powered switcher, which worked brilliantly with my set up. The change over/upgrade was handled really well too, so well done!

An update on my previous feedback. I purchased the 4 way HDMI connector, but the remote wasn’t working at all. However have since found a battery to fit and all good now. The item
works a treat.

We have had problems with our HDMI signal from our receiver to TV over a 15m length. This included drop outs, flickering etc, even with a booster on the line and reducing the signal quality. I read an online article with a similar problem and decided to try one of Rapallo’s HDMI 24AWG cables. This not only stopped the flickering and drop outs, but I don’t need the booster and have everything set to the highest quality. One very happy customer thankyou. Now I just have to figure out how to get the cable through the walls!

I have been purchasing equipment for my home theatre from Murray ever since late-2009 when I purchased an AE4000 projector.
I have always found Murray and the rest of the team at RapalloAV to be exceptional to deal with, whether it be advice over the phone, or via email communication.
On the rare occasion I have had an issue or require after-sales support, I know I can rely on the customer service team to assist.
Murray is an active member on Home Theatre forum discussions, and it proves his focus on ensuring he has well-informed, happy customers.
I have recommended RapalloAV to several friends and will continue to do so in the future.

Hi team,
I purchased some high-end audiophile speaker cables off you last week. I thought I would offer you some feedback relating to my purchase experience.
Ordering:
Ordering off your website was an absolute breeze. The prompts your system provided me with regarding the confirmation of order and where to go to pay for the product, down to the tracking service with the courier was very fast and efficient.
The Product:
The cables look fast just standing still! Great presentation boxed up, they drew envy from my work colleagues. I am not an expert on home theatre so I am not qualified to give an objective opinion on their performance, subjectively however, I have to say that the sound reproduction of the entire home theatre system is staggering. Very tight and chrystal clear vocals with massively rich base. An absolute listening pleasure.

Hello everyone at Rapallo AV!

Thank you very much for providing the best customer service possible from day 1:

The service:
– initial email enquiry that got a reply the same day
– very informative web site information on the Oppo blu-ray player I was after (BDP-93)
– fuss-free on-line ordering/payment system
– very quick delivery time (ordered my BDP93 on Monday afternoon, got the machine delivered on Wednesday at midday, less that 48 hours!)

The product
– Unpacking the Oppo BDP-93 reminded me of Christmas: from the unexpected thoughtfullness of the packaging to the beautifully made machine that feels solid, and has that classy high-end look about it!
– the performance of the Oppo BDP-93 has exceeded all my expectations: as an upscaler, it has injected new life into old dvds that I thought I would never watch again, the new level of detail and quality of the upscaled image is a sight to behold! I am glad I did not give away my old dvds (a not inconsiderable dvd collection built over 10 years at least)! As a blu-ray player, the Oppo BDP-93 comes fully laden with features and adjustment settings that will allow the fussiest of users to extract the best performance from the machine; out of the box, it has already proven superior to my existing machine: super quick load time, flawless play and so easy to set-up (the quality manual has extensive explanations on various options for setting-up the BDP-93, along with very easy to understand definitions of the home-theater technical jargon). The remote is to die for: a beautifully crafted piece of equipment with a clear lay-out with buttons that “click” with a positive feel and back-lit for legibility in the dark.

Thanks, Rapallo, for making this purchase such a memorable one

I received my Oppo BDP-93 Blu-ray player today after a very prompt 2 day delivery. I really appreciated the technical advice I received prior to the sale and then the actual transaction was smooth, confirmed and shipped the same day. This was my first purchase from Rapallo and it certainly will not be the last. There are many people living here in Christchurch that, like me, had their AV equipment destroyed in the earthquake. Supplies and selection of replacement equipment is limited because of damage to many of the retail stores in the greater Christchurch area. I strongly recommend that anyone in Christchurch looking to replace damaged and/or destroyed AV gear consider the replacement option of Rapallo AV. They carry quality gear, know their stuff and rest assured that you’ll get everything you pay for delivered without hassle right to your door.

Thanks for the great service and speedy delivery. The HDMI cable is better quaility than others I have seen and very well priced. I’ll certainly be returning here next time I’m looking for AV equipment or cables etc.

Thanks again.

I ordered a HDMI mini cable for my new Canon camera from Rapallo AV. I just happened to see them while searching on the web ( I couldn’t get one from the Camera Shop) From what I’ve seen of HDMI cable and how retailers put big mark ups on these products I was expecting it to be at least $50. This one was only $13.95!!!!! I placed my order, used internet banking and paid no courier fee. Amazing service, ordered it Wednesday night and it arrived Friday morning. Fantastic results on my TV. Great product, great price and great service!!! Highly recommend.

Fantastic, thank you! First time customer, and very pleased – I asked a friend who buys a LOT of quality gear if he’d heard of you and he had this to say, so word of mouth works!!

“Yep, have used these guys alot, they are great. With HDMI splitters and switches you need to be really careful about the devices and what your trying to do and get the right one – sometimes it takes a lot of trialling before you get one that works (as there’s so many standards out there!!) – all the stats are good on this one”

Hi Murray
Just a short note to say the OPPO Bdp80 arrived and running like a dream. I was a little apprehensive buying without seeing working but with your assurances I have been rewarded with excellent delivery, communication, friendly service and a product that is simply stunning. The product exceeds my expectations and is truly value for money leaving the other brands I tried with their clunky operation in the dust. I now see why it has so many positive reviews.
Thank you most sincerely

Hi,
Found you while lurking in audioenz forums and greatly impressed with service and sharp pricing. Ordered a couple of HDMI cables for my new home theatre setup on a Saturday & they turned up on Wednesday while I was unpacking my spanking new 50″ Panny V10. Needless to say a very happy camper & looking forward to winter with a little more enthusiasm.
Would recommend the Rapallo team to those in the market for av gear.

Hi there, just wanted to say thanks for the cable. I was getting random horizontal green lines on my display with my cheap Trademe special 10m cable. They finally got the better of me and I bought this cable off you. No more green lines 🙂 and the cable quality is 100x better.
Thanks also for the prompt delivery.

Oppo BDP-80 Blu-ray Player
I just want to say how stoked I am with my purchase of the Oppo BDP-80 Blu Ray player. It does everything I ever hoped it would and more!
The level of service I received from Murray has been brilliant! He answered all my questions when we spoke over the phone which showed he really knows his stuff. The turn around time frame was outstanding too. I placed my order just before 9am Wednesday, it was all paid for and shipped out by 11.30am the same day and arrived at my door by 10am Thursday.
It just doesn’t get any better than that!
Thankyou very much for an amazing product and fantastic service that has made this online shopping experience one of the best if not the best I have ever encountered.
I’ll definitely be back for more in the future.

OPPO BDP83SE
Murray,this player is an Audiophile bargain it really is a one box solution for the bewildering array of formats being marketed these days. It plays virtually all formats and everything with very high quality results. Blu ray performance is superb as is DVD , both audio and video. SACD’s and DVD audio both sound remarkable and also CD’s depending on their quality. The ease with which the OPPO plays everything is also extraordinary . Loading and startup times are excellent and the player runs cool and silently . I can see now why these machines get rave reviews .I was going to purchase an Audiophile brand machine which was priced at thousands more than the OPPO , I’m glad I did’nt now as this player is so good I would have been wasting my money. Many thanks for your patience and great service too.

I purchased an Oppo BDP-83 from Murray and placed the order after 8pm on a Wednesday night. Murray was available via e-mail to advise me on the payment process and I paid via internet banking that night. The Oppo was shipped the next day and arrived at my work in Wellington on the Friday. The service was great so certainly no reservations in using Rapallo AV again in the future.

The Oppo itself is a little beauty! The set-up was very quick and easy to run though. I connected it to my Yamaha Z9 via the 7.1 analogue output and popped in Quantum of Solace and watched the opening scene. The DTS-MA soundtrack was simply amazing, so much so that I had to turn it down from my normal volume level. Once configured with the supplied Spears & Munsil Blu-ray calibration disc, the picture on my HD 46” Samsung was outstanding and a noticeable improvement on my previous Blu-Ray source (Playstation 3).

This is a great player and well deserving of the very positive reviews provided all over the internet. The SACD performance is very nice but possibly not quite as warm and inviting as my old Marantz DV8300 but for the price it is extremely good.

All in all, this has been a very positive experience and as said, I would definitely recommend Murray for future purchases. If you are looking for an extremely good Blu-Ray player that can play all your discs and output the HD surround sound formats to a non-HDMI receiver, then the Oppo BDP-83 is a great option!
Cheers,
Glynn

Hi Murray,
Order arrived today, Brilliant! Ordered monday, shipped tuesday, delivered wednesday.

As the tape on the Oppo carton was unbroken, I thought that you may have forgotten the 3m HDMI cable and region free mod, but after getting it home and unpacking, its all there! Very nice looking player, nicely presented and the Pro Gold HDMI cable is a work of art! Looks like a very well constructed cable at a great price!

I am trying to sell my old reciever before setting up the new Kit, so it may be a week or so before I get to play, I can’t wait to try it out!

It was a pity that you were away till last monday. I was wanting confirmation from You or Sound Group Holdings that you were an authorised Yamaha dealer. Unfortunately that confirmation was a few days coming from Sound Group Holdings, and I got cold feet and purchased a Z7 locally at $4500 after some haggling and reference to the sharp pricing of your Z7/BDP83 bundle. I was a bit cautious about ordering from you as you don’t have a physical store, however after recieving confirmation from Sound Group Holdings of your Yamaha Dealer status I ordered the Oppo from you. After your prompt processing and delivery I won’t hesitate in purchasing from you in future or recommending you to my friends.
Regards, Allen Goodhue, New Plymouth.

Customer feedback – 19/12/09
I received the Mitsubishi hc 3800 yesterday. Wow. It throws a fantastic picture. After a lot of thought about what to buy i am really happy with it. It sure is bright in best mode which was important to me (even in low lamp mode), and it is very sharp and the colour is great. Watched a few blurays last, very impressed. It is quite a different experience to the 29” tv I’ve had since 1996! Thanks very much and enjoy your holiday.

Put the new 3 port pigtail HDMI switcher through it’s paces this weekend and it just worked brillantly. Thank you for the prompt delivery.

Hi Murray,
Thanks for the Audio Calibration Disc that arrived today out of the blue (much appreciated) and to let you know we’re really pleased with our Oppo BDP-83. Regarding Divx movies you can pass on that it not only plays them well but also plays them from a memory stick via the front USB port (handy that). Another great feature that we appreciate is when playing a DVD movie one can skip all the preliminary bullsh*t at the beginning and go straight to the actual movie (be nice if it could do that for Blu-ray as well).
Cheers

Hi Murray,
I had read that most HDMI cables at stores are vastly over priced so I decided to search for some decently priced cables with google. I tracked down RapalloAV website and the prices were great. So I grabbed a HDMI cable to connect my PS3 to my LCD monitor. Everything was so quick and easy with great service that I’ve told all my friends that if they need any audiovisual equipment then RapalloAV is the place to go. Next time I need some equipment your website is the first place I’m checking. Actually I’m going to have a bit of a browse now.

Hi Murray, Thanks for the fast delivery of the item. Here is my feedback…
Thanks for the fast delivery of the DV-981HD up-converting DVD player. We have a large collection of standard DVDs from many regions so this player was ideal as the region free instructions provided took about 10 seconds to apply. From taking the player out of the box its easy to see this is a quality product. But the delight is in the picture and sound. We use a CRT TV and a 5.1 amp so we aren’t using the full capabilities of the 981HD yet but even so we enjoyed a clarity and detail of images (eg. ‘The Right Stuff’ movie was beautifully presented) with excellent sound. Can’t wait for the day when we can hook up this DVD player’s HDMI capabilities!
Kind Regards, Russell

Thanks very much for you prompt service in answering my questions and dispatching my order within a day of placing it. I received the OPPO Blu-ray player yesterday and I’m delighted with it. I’m particularly impressed with the way it plays standard definition DVDs — I can see a vast improvement compared to playing them via the X-Box. (I have a 46″ LCD screen.) Haven’t yet had time to check out all the features but I can tell this is a quality product.

Very pleased with the product and service.
The HDMI splitter arrived the following day and works perfectly with my set up with no problems or loss of HD quality.
I’m actually using it to provided a direct connection to my HDTV with the other connection going into my AV receiver for TrueHD & HD DTS decoding as I was experiencing dropped frames when just playing through the receiver, apparently due to some kind of incompatibilty between the HDTV and reciever when playing at 1080p/24p.
Great to have this problem resolved at last even if it is a little unconventional.
Many thanks

Good evening Murray —13/08/09 time 6.01pm
I am having a little trouble with this unit. I use a single input which is HDMI input 2, and it works without any problems. However, I switched the cabling over to HDMI Input 1 and there was no video or audio signal. After changing back to HDMI Input 2 both signals were restored. As I have mentioned I am only using one input but at the price I paid I would like the future capability of using 2 inputs if I so desired.
I have purchased from you twice previously and have been very happy with the service and the products. This is the reason why I support your company.
What do you suggest?
Regards
Colin Mackey
Thanks Murray —- 13/8/09 time 7.13pm
Yes you were indeed correct. With two sources it works exactly as expected. It looks as though the unit became as confused as I was and now we are both happy. I do appreciate your very prompt remote control fix.
Great service and another very happy customer

Hi Murray
HDMI adaptors arrived yesterday in time to be installed before MySkyHD upgrade arrived! Many thanks for such excellent service. I’m happy to post feedback for your website.
“These HDMI adaptors are essential tools if you’re trying to install a flat screen TV on a low profile wall mount – I’d chosen the lowest profile Sanus model and the close-together, straight entry HDMI slots are perfectly suited to one pivoting adaptor sitting atop a low-profile right-angle adaptor. The MySky technician had never seen such neat devices so I gave him your card! They perform brilliantly, and your overnight service was excellent.”

I’ve had the Yamaha USB speakers for about a week now, I thought you might be interested in my opinions. I’m very pleased with them, they live up to my expectations, being a huge improvement on my Macbook and iMac speakers, and the volume is most impressive. For the size they are great.
Back a few weeks ago when I was doing some Internet research on USB speakers, I settled on the Yamaha as being the ones I wanted. So far as I could find out, from a Google search, RapalloAV seems to be the only retailer in NZ offering them. I’m not sure how many of these units you move, but I’d say there would (or should) be a niche market for them, especially with students (every second Otago scarfie has a laptop).
Anyway, nice to do business with you.

Hi Murray
Some feedback which you can include on your site if you want – and many thanks for including in the box the ribbon cable from the mod.
“The Oppo BDP-83 is a superb product and exceptionally good value. The player has coped admirably with every sort of media I have tried out – Blu-ray, SD DVD, CD, SACD, DVD-Audio and photo files via USB. Video performance for both Blu-ray and SD DVD is excellent and in some ways better than more costly ‘big name’ equipment that I have. Audio performance is also very good particularly from quality Blu-ray and DVD soundtracks and SACDs. The region mod works well for both Blu-ray and SD DVD so I now have a true multi region universal player at a very reasonable price given the quality of the player’s construction and performance. Set up is a breeze and the manual is well written and comprehensive. I have received excellent, prompt service from Murray at Rapallo and he was very obliging with a special request I had. I thoroughly recommend both the BDP-83 and Rapallo.’
Kind regards
Paul
Auckland 9/07/09

While browsing the AudioEnz forums recently for opinions on blu-ray players, I learned that Oppo were about to release a blu-ray player and that this would be available from a company I had never heard of called RapalloAV. I emailed RapalloAV and from that first contact Murray has been quick to respond to any questions, and has kept me regularly updated on progress when I pre-ordered the Oppo BDP-83. The player has now arrived and I am thrilled with it. I had some idea of what to expect in terms of picture quality with blu-ray, but watching Vertical Limit last night, I was blown away by the improvement in audio quality. DVDs with a DTS soundtrack have always sounded pretty good – nothing like top of the range equipment, but still good quality. I now realise the audio components had never even got out of the starting blocks before!
I haven’t tried a DVD in the Oppo yet, but the incredible detail in both picture and audio from blu-ray has immediately convinced me that it has been money very well spent, and my wife agrees with me 100%. I get the impression that not all blu-ray discs are created equal and some will be more impressive than others, but I look forward to many enjoyable hours exploring them.
Great service Murray – thanks.

Hi Murray,
Just wanted to say thanks for the quick delivery of the cable and switcher. They arrived the day after payment was made. This is the second time I have used RapalloAV and it certainly won’t be the last. The products have arrived quickly, well packed and as advertised and the low price is always a bonus. I Called the first time I ordered from you and you gave me some advice on what I needed and what would and wouldn’t work. This was much appreciated and saved me a lot of hassle and money.
The pigtail is great, I was in two minds over getting it but I am so glad I did, talk about make life easier. The size of it and the fact that it is “powerless” are huge things for me as I wanted to have it behind a TV that is wall mounted. I have attached a picture so you can see how I have it (the 2nd cable I ordered from you will use the 3rd port), It would have been a real pain having to use one a; without a built in pigtail and b; one I had to plug into the wall.
I will be recommending RapalloAV to friends and colleagues who are looking for great service and low cost solutions.
Thanks

Hi Murray, received the projector last Thursday.
Looks like all the reviews were right! I was a bit sceptical of the reviews as I was thinking what would first time projector owners know and would they be that critical?
However I am really pleased with the image and brightness (I prefer the low light mode) of the DV10. Obviously not as good as my infocus on the ceiling (IN76) but more than acceptable for the average viewer. Good blacks and good skin tones. The ergonomics are good as well except for the Brite mode being the default mode.
The speaker for there size are very good and far superior to amplified MP3 (I hate mp3!). Infact I can enjoy a movie in the bedroom and the sound melts away and I can be involved in the movie. Obviously a real grunty home theatre sound system is far superior but the sound is not offensive to be distracting.
Its a pity it is not promoted more as I think it is great value.
I’m interested to see how the Epson combination goes in comparison ($800 Dick smith)
Anyway thanks for the great service (again)

Hi Murray,
Thanks for the HDMI cable. It got here exactly when I expected it to and did exactly what it should have done. What could’ve and should’ve cost me a small fortune, I ended up getting for a fraction of the price from you so much gratitude to you and I’ve already started mentioning RapalloAV to everyone I see!
Cheers,

Thanks for the excellent service. Dispatch immediate and received in perfect order. The Black Diamond HDMI cable is excellent. Great value for money. $31 plus freight just proves it is NOT necessary to spend a fortune.

Hey im Sean Arnold, I recently purchased a HDMI cable off you (Black Diamond).
I’d just like to say thanks. I was kind of half expecting the product and your business to be a rip-off job but it really isn’t.
The HDMI cable fixed my EMI (electro magnetic interference) problems with my monitor that I had by using a VGA cable.
Obviously this was because of the good insulation the BD cables have.
Its great to see a NZ company making quality AV equipment. I’ll keep you in mind for future purchases.
In saying this I dont have specalised equipment to test your cables (as well as most people — lucky Monster eh?) but it seems alright.
So yeah, thanks for your services and good luck on getting the brand out there.

Hi Murray,
YES! I have received my Oppo player and it’s excellent. GREAT sound quality. I can really hear an improvement over my last DVD Audio/Video player. I’m really happy with it. It all arrived in excellent condition and your packaging and shipping were top shelf! Thanks again. I will definitely be directing people your way if they are in the market for ‘anything home theatre’. I’ll leave some feedback on your website over the weekend.
Have a good one,

Good morning Murray
Thank you for dispatching my order so promptly.

Thanks for the excellent service and the brilliant price. Not only did you supply an HDMI cable for exactly one fifth of the price asked by JB electronics, but you got it to me in Wellington with no fuss within 24 hours of my order, and that was during the holiday season. Amazing.

Hi Murray,
The Oppo HM-31 HDMI switch works great, just plugs in and works straightaway. It’s a fantastic looking switch too, well worth the extra $$. Add another vote to its recommendation. Thanks also for the easy return and credit of the original HDMI switch I tried, which didn’t work with my equipment.
Responses to email questions were very prompt, and delivery was very fast too.
I’ll certainly be returning here next time I’m looking for AV equipment or cables etc.
Thanks,

Hi again Murray
Success!!! 🙂
No problem with the return & refund of that ridiculously over-priced Monster cable. It was returned to the Norman Ross store in Lower Hutt (owned by the same people that run Harvey Norman).
Of course I was offered alternative cables but of course I will instead buy them from yourself (your quick response and help won the day!). I’ve been on your web site already and ordered two of the Silver copper coated cables you mentioned below. I’ve decided to order 2 more cables later together with the switch box as a ‘phase 2’ order once the Telstra box arrives on the scene early next year.
I’m hoping you will be able to deliver the cables during next week to ensure a pre Xmas arrival. If you cannot do this please let me know.
Again thanks for your comments. I’ll be spreading the word about RapolloAV!!

Hi Murray
I’m very impressed with your prices and efficient service. The cable is great and a fraction of equivalent retail price. I suspect that the retailers are competitive on hardware and make most of their profits on peripherals. It is great to have a quality on-line alternative.

Good afternoon Murray
Thank you for shipping my order so promptly!
Putting a home theatre package together oneself is pretty daunting but very satisfying once it’s done…
I checked out your feedback pages myself before “taking the plunge”!
The equipment purchased from your site has enabled me to fit a home theatre discreetly into my living room, while providing a wonderful “gold class” cinema experience in my own home.
I don’t think I would have gone ahead with the idea if I had not found your site and realised that it was indeed feasible, and affordable.

Hi Murray

The high end audiophile speaker cables are fantastic. Even at this early stage with only a few hours of conditioning the difference between our old monster speaker cable is easily noticeable, particularly the mid-range with speech coming to the front of the sound stage. For us, even with a high-end receiver, the ability to change the cable to banana plugs at the receiver end has eliminated the clutter around the speaker binding posts. We’ve left the spades on the other ends of the cables. My wife and friends have been amazed at the weight and quality of construction of these cables. All we can say is that they are a bargain and really should sell for more!
Honestly, I asked others how much they thought the cables cost me (after explaining the specifications to them) and the average price they quoted me for a cable was more than the total cost for all three! This is my first time to try proper speaker cables and the lift in clarity of the sound was so noticeable – the soundstage sounded so much “cleaner”. I now really understand what the audio reviewers in magazines such as Tone mean about improving your set-up by making such a small investment in decent cabling.

Kind regards

To say I am impressed with your company would not do you justice.

Hi Murray,
The Oppo DVD player arrived on Wednesday and I have had a good play with it. Does a great job on up-scaling most DVD’s with the exception of Andre Rieu DVD “Live in Maastrich”. While I enjoy Andre Rieu and have many of his DVD’s I do not consider them to be of the best quality both in Video and Sound. Anyhow the poor up-scaled image is not the fault of the Oppo player but the source material.
Because of your excellent service I would appreciate you posting the following feed back for me.
Thanks,

Just received player today and immediately connected. Presentation of the box very impressive. Am pleased to report that the player stood up to first impressions. Have been listening to various disc types of CDs – Wow Realy great sound.
My Arcam CD player cost a lot more and only plays normal CDs. I am very happy and thank you for your quick response to my order. The real crunch comes next month when I am the host of our audio club’s monthly meeting. Must rush to do some more listening and read the user friendly manual.

Murray,

Received my Oppo 983. Arrived within 24 hours of payment. An
outstanding DVD player.

I don’t think that on your website it informs us of the excellent order confirmation sequence which should allay the fears of any new clients.

1)I place order on website
2)In about 2 minutes an automated email arrives confirming a
successful order, reassuring
3)In an hour or so a detailed order confirmation email containing
detailed pricing and delivery costs and bank or paypal info arrives
4)After funds are deposited an email arrives confirming that the
goods are now despatched from you with a Track and Trace number
5)The courier delivers requiring a signature.

Not knowing this sequence previously I was tempted to email you next morning to ask about progress, but your despatch email just beat me to it.

Excellent service and communication. Highly recommended.

Hi Murray
Item received today thankyou. Quick hook up and quick look at lunch time and all looks very good.
I have a Logitech Harmony 1000i Universal remote and the Oppo HM-31 is in their data base. This means when I change from My Sky HDi box to Freeview HD box to Panasonic DVD Recorder (all using HDMI), I can incorporate the switching of the HDMI input into each activity on my Logitech remote. While I switch off the DVD Recorder when it is not being the source, I choose to leave the other two boxes on all the time.
I previously tried a Dick Smith HDMI switch and had to take it back because the Logitech Remote data base had nothing on it and the learn function would not work – basically it was crap.

Hello Murray,
Thanks for your recent sales chat and very quick delivery of the excellent sounding SACD & crisp DVD upscaling OPPO 980 device.
Matter of fact, you shipped the unit by courier at 1:30 PM on Monday and I received it Monday in North Shore Akl at about 2:45 PM. Arguably as fast as if I drove over to the City and back getting something!
Obviously your direct warehouse shipping method is definitely a very quick, convenient and easy way to get excellent performing A/V toys etc.
Thanks very much, and Well Done !

Hi Murray
I’ve just received my order today and just want to say how amazing your service was. After I sent you an email with a couple of queries at about 10.30pm last week, I was amazed to get a reply from you after only about 10 minutes. Your advice was most helpful after being very indecisive in what to do. I received the order in super quick time and I’m sure that the cables and wall plate that I ordered will do the job superbly. I’m certainly looking forward to my next purchase from you and I’ll be absolutely recommending your company to friends and family.
Kind regards

Hi Murray
Received the HDMI cable yesterday and I’m blown away by the difference it makes. It really is incredible, I wasn’t expecting that much of a difference, but Blu-Ray on an HDTV is amazing. The price was also excellent, I could have paid $300 more for the same cable and acheived the same effect. Will definitely keep you in mind next time i need some gear.

The quality of construction is superb and will definetly cost more if I bought a brand name product other than RapolloAV.

Dear Murray,
Amazing service and product!!! Your Oppo DV-981HD DVD player is so incerdibly fantastic. The picture detail quality is nearly the same with Bluray. I tested and compared with 15 titles of Bluray Disc and DVD we have and that made me rethinking for buying some more Bluray Disc. Thank you so much 🙂

Its true ! The Oppo DV980-H is as good as the reviews say it is – I spent a lot of the weekend setting up the DVD player into a 42” Full HD TV and 5.1 through my B&W speaker. Sound is fantastic from CD and vision is incredible. I played one of my DVDs – Earthflight – Space Shuttle views of the earth – and couldn’t believe the resolution !
Will be back for other bits and pieces – do you have the Oppo HDMI splitter in stock at the moment ?
Thanks a lot

Mt Roskill 17/06/08

Hi Murray
Yet again another fantastic product from Rapallo AV. Sorry for the late feedback on the Oppo Dv-980H that we purchased – we can’t get over the improvement to our standard DVDs played through this player, whether on our LCD TV or through the projector, so we’ve been revisiting DVDs from the past just to watch them with the new level of detail. Best of all, the Oppo outputs native 480i resolution and we can let the receiver handle the upscaling – fantastic! (not that we could fault the Oppo’s upscaling in any way either). My partner and I had to double check that we were using a DVD player when playing CDs – the detail in the audio is superb and we love the ability to turn off the video circuitry so that the audio signal is as pure as it can be. Also, problematic zone 1 DVD disks that we had play faultlessly through the Oppo and I really appreciate the ability to update the firmware. Highly recommended to anybody looking for a great DVD player/CD player to compliment their home theatre setup.
Kind regards

Hi Murray
I have spent a few days running many meters of Cat5E, Coax and Speaker cable through our new home.
Yesterday I finally got to break your cables out of their packets and run them as well. I was a little worried that one the 15m cables would not reach the family area from my media area, and so I was very relieved when I ran it and ended up with about 60cm to spare.
Having seen and installed the cables I am really wrapped with them. They even feel like they have real substance, and quality. I have no doubt that they will perform as well as they look, when I finally get the opportunity to plug them in.
Thanks again for the great deal, and once the painters have been through our place and we
are looking at final fit-off, you will no doubt get some more business from me.
Regards
Charles

Hi Murray,
Thank you for the almost risk-free transaction. Was hesitant at first to purchase this online but after reading the feedback about the company and the OPPO dvd player, I decided to jump in and take the plunge. It’s a good thing I made the right choice. Placed my order on Wednesday and got the item couriered on a Friday as expected. Thanks again for the prompt service.
Ronnel Wellington 23/05/08

I took a chance on this site not due to the site’s own Feedback system, but the unbiased, unsolicited recommendations found in technical forums (AV themed) around the net.
If you know your requirements and find the product here, then the service you get is exactly as stated.
Good to see good service standards still exist.
Cheers

This is the first time that I have personally dealt with Rapallo AV. I ordered my projector screen on the Monday, paid for it via internet banking on the Tuesday morning and the screen arrived the same afternoon.
What fantastic service, if only all companies that I deal with gave the same time and care to their clients.
I would unreservedly give my recommendation to Rapallo AV to any perspective customer!
Tim Robinson
Wellington 7/05/08

Hi Murray,
I took the conservative approach of ordering one HDMI cable to see what the service was like and most importantly (what it all boils down too) the quality of the cable. I was actually amazed at the service and honest advice Murray gave me thru the entire order – and the cable was simply the best I’ve ever used.

I have subsequently made a number of further purchases and spent a lot of time on the phone talking directly with Murray about various options on both cables and hardware. I trust Murray’s advice and he hasn’t disappointed at any stage. Orders are processed and distributed within 24 hours of him receiving them and the postage and packaging is first rate.

One further thing I’d like to add. I simply can’t fault Murray’s accuracy of the descriptions on his website. I’ve seen and read so many false descriptions and testimonies regarding cables and hardware over the years on various “other” websites that it’s so refreshing to find a company that is both customer orientated and knowledgeable in their field – and what’s better, they are NZ owner and operated!

Thanks Murray:

I recently bought some cables, wall plates and other items through Rapalloav as part of my home theatre build.
I had never bought anything from this company before. Their HDMI cable prices looked good, so I gave them a try.
Striking some problems early on, I just accepted that these things happen, and I would have to live with it.
But Rapalloav were brilliant. After mentioning my issues in a return email, imagine my surprise when the owner calls me directly only a couple of hours later, and goes out of his way to resolve the problem. And it wasn’t just one call. Over the next few days the owner offered various solutions to the problems I encountered, and with good communication, in the end we found the answers.
My system is up and running brilliantly, and the job is done correctly.
Service is everything.
Would I buy here again.? You bet.
Are the products first class.? You bet
I thoroughly recommend these guys, and know that your experience will be similar.
Its about time we had people who actually care.
A very Big thanks to Rapalloav.

Hi Murray,
I just wanted to say that the Oppo DV981 I brought from you last week is absolutely brilliant.
We’ve watched heaps of DVDs and the colour and image clarity scaling to 720p is just beautiful.
Awesome stuff!
Also, I’ve not seen any evidence of the ‘macroblocking’ with the Panasonic PV7 panel.

That’s awesome Murray, We have been discussing customer service a lot recently and a lot of businesses have fallen behind when it comes to customer service. How does one show gratitude to someone who goes beyond the extra mile to satisfy their customers. I have mentioned your business name to many businesses in town for your great and prompt service. I service over 100 businesses in Oamaru and will gladly inform them of your business and service for buying home theatre and audio products. Fact is you can get something quicker from you than a business can get something from 100 km a way down here .
Keep up the great service.
I have still to order my mount and will probably go for the dearer won as you have suggested.

Hi Murray,
I read the testimonials on your website but thought you had to be a customer to get that kind of superb service. And here you are now responding to my feeble enquiry within 12 hours !! How fantastic are you??
You may have saved me some money in the short term BUT you have gained my respect for being upfront AND have gained a customer for the future.
I am one of the many consumers who were misled into buying what we thought was a future-proofed (to a certain extent) TV .as it turned out it is not. The TV is about 2 years old and I guess short of a financial windfall, I will have to stick with what I have got. I don’t think the Vendor will be interested in my complaints at this time or at any other time.
The reviewer on my TV from TONE magazine (in 2006) said:
“None of the Grand Wega TVs has digital (HDMI/DVI) input and this neatly sidesteps the issue of connectivity compatibility. Instead, Sony relies on the WEGA engine,which sense the type of input signal and minimises the analogue-to-digital conversions accordingly.” I did not know what hdmi was in those days and i guess neither did the vendor- a major company!
One of the reviewers in FFWD mag was supplied with “an HD signal generator and a sample disc to test the high-definition component of the Grand Wega.” Is that generator freely available and if so, would it cost as much as a TV? Seems like in the short term, that may be an alternative?? Or maybe I better be happy with what I have and stop pondering the what-ifs…and start saving (again!) for a new TV…here comes another domestic in the making 🙂
Cheers and thank you again for your time and total honesty,
Colleen Hooi,

Hi Murray
Thanks for the second optical cable you sent. I now have both my DVD player and DVD recorder connected to my receiver in this way. The annoying hum I often heard from the subwoofer and other speakers has not been present since I switched from coax to optical (if this has permanently fixed the problem it is a very inexpensive solution…fingers crossed). I was also impressed by the quality of the Accell subwoofer cable and component video cable I purchased from you a month or so ago. I’m considering upgrading the other component video cable in my system to one like this or going all out and upgrading the DVD player to the new Oppo 983 with an HDMI connection to my new plasma TV.

Hi Murray
Thanks to your mini HDMI splitter our home theatre set-up is complete. We can now effortlessly watch all our HDMI connected devices through the television or the projector (using our receiver), and best of all, the mini HDMI splitter doesn’t require any input from us – it just does it’s job and you wouldn’t know it was there. As you pointed out, a powered splitter such as this was definitely the way to go with the projector connected by a 15m Platinum HiPQ cable – absolutely faultless. Great service, great support and great products.

Hi Murray, I’ve been using the HDMI cable for a couple of hours now and thought I would send you something for your site feedback area. The cable resolved a longstanding annoyance I have been experiencing with an HDMI switch, and I am more than pleased!
I have several HDMI sources (HD DVD, DVD and Blu-ray) but sadly only one HDMI input on my projector, so several months ago I purchased an HDMI switch to make changing devices a little easier. In the months following that purchase I had an ongoing string of problems ranging from video dropouts and connection failures to movies stopping dead in their tracks mid-sentence. I swapped cables for another well-known brand trying to resolve the problem. I didn’t get any dropouts with this new cable. In fact, I didn’t get anything at all except a blank screen and an error message. I was considering importing a premium cable from the US, but a friend suggested that I give RapalloAV a try first. The price of their cables was very reasonable, so I wasn’t expecting much. But when the cable arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how well built it was, with a solid metal connector and some very slick shielding. It certainly looked and felt as nice as any of the premium European brands, minus the price tag. When I tentatively plugged the HDMI cable into my switch, all of the problems I experienced in the past completely disappeared. Not a pixel dropped, not any issues of any kind just glorious, crisp High Definition video from every source. Thank you RapalloAV. I can wholeheartedly recommend your products to anyone looking for an excellent HDMI cable at an amazing price.
Regards,
Adam

I must say Im very impressed with the Oppo 980H. The upscaling capabilities will keep me from buying into HD for some time as I can now watch my prized collection of DVDs at 1080i on my HD CRT TV. A stunning clear picture, compared with the Sony QS SACD DVD player I was using. What is most pleasing though is the audio! The new depth and clarity of CDs I have listened to dozens of times was amazing, that on top of its abilities to play almost any format you can throw at it makes me wonder why I didnt buy this sooner. Big thumbs up to Murray too, very helpful and super prompt. The unit arrived less than 24hours after payment and was well packaged. I look forward to dealing with him again soon.

Thank you so much Murray. You passion and enthusiasm in finding the best possible image really comes through in the way you run your business. Your approach is unpretentious and you are willing to find the best quality product within a budget which is absolutely appreciated. The Sanyo PLV-Z2000 and Oppo DVD player are worth every cent. Any future upgrades will undoubtedly be through you.

Sandringham, Auckland – 8/01/08

The Mitsubishi HC6000 is the most incredible 1080p projector I have seen and I’m glad I purchased it directly from you – rich vibrant colours, inky blacks and super sharp picture. The Yamaha RXV3800 I got from you is also very nice – the sound packs a punch while remaining remarkably clean and clear – up to Yamaha’s usual high standard. I would also like to thank you for the very competitively priced HDMI cables which definitely help this gear deliver its payload in my lounge room.
Something that none of this gear demonstrates though, is your impeccable level of service and support. Fast and friendly contact combined with reliable and speedy service makes Rapallo several steps ahead of the traditional “brick-and-mortar”. Your knowledge and experience with cinema and home theatre technology is enviable and really helps when making a purchasing decision.
Keep up the great work and I look forward to buying more toys from you in the new year.

Hi Murray,
The Oppo 980H arrived sooner than expected – thanks. I am only using it for CD playback so far – as per all the other favourable comments about this machine I can confirm the sound quality is first class.

Hi Murray,
Thanks for the new Oppo DV-981HD. Real easy to set up and the great thing is I can now sell my very expensive Denon 3910 DVD Player. I was never happy with its results of the 3910 (as I told you on the phone) but now I have a player thats affordable and produces a better image! Gee I wish I had never paid all that hard earned cash for the Denon, oh well have to farm it off to Trademe now 😉
Cheers

Hi Murray,
Thanks for the very prompt service over the Xmas period when I least expected it!
I bought one of your RapalloAV Economy Gold HDMI cables for my PS3 and cant believe I only paid $39.95 for a 1080p and 1.3 version cable! The image and results are amazing on my new 1080p Panasonic display. Great Xmas thank you.

Hi Murray
Thanks very much for the Oppo 980H. As you said it arrived safe and sound two days working days after the order was placed. Connection was easy  five minutes  that’s all. This player replaced my Yamaha SD15000 SACD / DVD player and I’d have to say at this stage it is significantly better. Firstly the speed to load the disk and find the tracks is hugely better. The Yammie was verrrrry slow. Also the base management is very much better with a much more defined and punchier base than I’d heard before. On DVD the musicality is fantastic ( I can’t comment yet on the video as I still have a very old CRT TV so can’t appreciate the video). On CD payback there is little need to kill the DSP processing on my amp like I had to with the SD1500 to get a clear soundstage – but when I do the music is now played at another level. It’s a great player and easy to navigate.

Hi Murray
Thank you for your incredibly fast service. The DVD player arrived at 10.30 this morning when I only transferred the funds at 4pm yesterday. I have just connected the DH980H to my TV and am very happy with the results. Thanks.

Hi Murray, I am absolutely delighted with the Oppo DV-981 which I bought a couple of weeks ago. DVDs are superb, DivX material is getting a good boost as well. Build quality is superb compared to other products in this price range.

Hi Murray
Many thanks for your advice regarding long-run HDMI cables. We’ve installed our projector with the RapalloAV PLATINUM HiPQ 15 metre cable and the image is better than it was with a 2m HDMI cable that came with the DVD player! If anybody has any doubts about spending money on a high quality HDMI cable (especially over this distance), then don’t – the quality of the cable (it’s at least twice as thick as a typical, mass-produced HDMI cable) and the image are beyond our expectations. The installation has transformed our lounge into a proper home-theatre installation. We could have purchased a no-name brand cable off trademe and learnt how to waste money the hard way!
I look forward to recommending your company to anybody considering home theatre equipment.
Cheers

Hi Murray,
I thought you might be interested in my results using the Accell Ultra AV Component Cable.
Test TV : Sony 60� SXRD Bravia R Series
Test Player : LG DR613W Progressive Scan DVD Player \ Recorder
Test Movie : Ice Age 2
Overall Cable Impression:
Good solid end connectors and nice tight connection with both the TV and DVD player.
Test Results:
Upscaling to 1080P using Sony DRC Chip on TV the colour reproduction was perfect, blacks were nice and deep and all the primary colors were as they should be. Edges of characters were smooth with no jagged imperfections. Very happy with the picture quality, even with upscaling it looks better than the original DVD at 640P displayed on a 34″ TV.

I am a return customer of Murray’s and i couldn’t be happier with his service in my time dealing with him.That’s why i came back to purchase another product off him.His service is prompt,efficient, friendly and most importantly trustworthy.I ordered my Oppo DV-980H DVD player on Monday afternoon and no sooner had done that when he sent me an email confirming the details of the order.As soon as i deposited my payment for the Oppo DVD player he sent me an email within a few hours saying the Oppo had been shipped.I received it the next day professionally packed & working well.The Oppo’s are a fantastic buy and i recommend them in a heart beat.Great value for money and second to none on their customer care.I now have two Oppo’s ( DV-981HD for my video needs and the new DV-980H with HDMI version 1.2a for my audio needs).Best of both worlds.The DV-980H will marry up with my Yamaha RX-V2700 home theatre receiver which also has HDMI version 1.2a,which i also purchased off Murray,which basically says it all really.I would not hessitate in recommending doing business with Murray and RapalloAV.He sells some great quality equipment & as i said, i couldn’t be happier.
Thanks Murray:

Hi Murray,
I would just like to commend you on truly excellent service.
I received my Oppo DVD player before I even had time to think “I wonder when it will arrive”. Oh and compared to my cheap Philips DVD player, this thing is amazing.
Thanks

Hi Murray,
I spent hours looking for a decent hdmi switcher and had almost given up before I stumbled upon your site. The switcher is exactly what I was looking for and the service was outstanding. I highly recommend RapalloAV to anyone who requires AV equipment of quality.

Hi Murray,
I have been monitoring this brand from the internet since last year, but a bit worried since they don’t have a dealer here plus the difference in voltage. Good to know that RapalloAV is now selling this brand in New Zealand. It is one of the best dvd player in the market with a very competitive price. I bought recently from Murray Oppo-DV-980H, I was blown away how clear and sharp the image on 720p, and the tested the sound quality on one of my audio collection it was crisp and got depth in it. Not to mention, I could view jpegs from my USB flash card. Best buy ever.
Best Regards,

Hi Murray,
It’s an awesome player ( Oppo DV-981HD DVD ) even the picture display on interlaced is stunning.
Definitely recommended!- Alan – Wellington 15/04/07

Murray
The Accell HDMI cable is an excellent product. Don�t waste your money on basic wire from your local electrical supplier, when you can get the same quality as the high end AV cables for a few dollars more (without paying a monster price).
Great product, excellent communication and prompt delivery, thanks Murray.

Hi Murray,
Sorry for the delay in sending you feedback – been a little too busy cleaning and recalibrating my system with the new player installed, and watching loads of movies of course.
Though I haven’t tested the Hi-rez capabilities yet, for standard definition DVD the Oppo is fantastic. Picture and sound quality are superb; it’s dead quiet while running and is much more responsive than my last player. I was surprised that a progressive signal didn’t give any improvement over 576i, but the limitation most probably lies in the design of my projector and use of a component rather than digital connection.
Many thanks for your advice, prompt replies via email and quick delivery.
Kind regards and feel free to chop this email up into a suitable blurb for posting on your site,
Callum 3/04/07

I’ve found that the Oppo is so good on interlaced, that often a progressive signal doesn’t produce better results. Where you will see an improvement is using the HDMI out from the Oppo.

Hi, well finally got my PS3 so got to try my HDMI cable. The cable’s great, not heavy and stiff like monster cables so wont damage the plugs, and at just over 1/4 the price of a monster cable you cant go wrong!!
Cheers

As promised the unit arrived to my Auckland address within 24hrs. The pre-sale, sale and after sale service have also been excellent. I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend the Oppo product and Rapalloav to anyone – in fact I already have.
Once again thank you very much for all your help.

The Oppo DV-970HD DVD player i purchased online through rapalloav.co.nz is of a very high standard. Its audio and visual quality is of the utmost. I shopped around the $200-$400 mark and this DVD player is by far the best buy. Its won tons of awards – it sounds fantastic – even through standard RCA cable (although it is also an HDMI device). The goods were shipped using a trackpac and were delivered to me the day after he received my money. I would recommend Murray as an honest trader and Oppo for making fine gear. Cheers. Jake – Wellington. 9/01/07

Great cable. Works well at higher resolutions. very happy. Thanks – Rob- 30/11/06

Murray was selling an item I had given up trying to find. But what is really great is that it was a fantastic price. Good communication and swift delivery. Highly recommended AAA+++. – Julie – Hamilton. 15/8/06

His feedback says it all, top trader, every thing done by the book. You will not get better! Cheers. – Alister – Christchurch. 8/09/06

Murray sets high standards for himself. His generous and responsive communication both prior to the purchase and after delivery was exceptional. Murray is obvious a trader that wants his clients to be happy. He is generous with his knowledge of the products that he sells even after he has completed the sale, which shows how genuinely professional he is. I knew that I was dealing with someone who could be trusted. I recommend Murray as a trustworthy and considerate trader. Thankyou Murray. – Michael – Darfield. 17/4/06

Great guy very knowledgeable and has good products. Took the time to find out what I was tryin to do and suggested a much bettr approach. Would certainly trade again with Murray. -Shaun – Auckland. 30/3/06

Murray is one of the best traders on Trademe! He sold an item which went missing at the post office, and he offered me another one at his loss. He even came to my house to drop it off personally. This is something I’ve never been offered with previous auctions. He gave me all his contact details, and replied to my emails very quickly. A+++ Don’t worry buying from Murray at all! – Hanah – North Shore. 28/2/06
