    Hello from Beijing

    Hello everyone,

    Re: Hello from Beijing

    Many thanks to you all! To answer some of your questions: I have listed most of my gears in my signature area. The only Chinese brand item I am using right now is the OPPO 205, which is a great Bluray play. Although it was discontinued a couple years ago. I believe it is still the best you can buy (if you can find one) in the market. And the projector I am using is the JVC N6BC.

    Cheers,

    Julian

    Welcome, Julian! Wonderful system that you have there.

    Don’t understand some of the comments though.

    In this global economy, we are free to select components from anywhere in the world, regardless of where we come from.

    Sorry to confuse you. I don't mean JVC is a Chinese brand, the only Chinese product is the OPPO. I was explaining my gears.

    I didn't bring this up. If you read the thread from the beginning, I was ansewering someone's comment that I don't have any Chinese brand gear in my system. So I explained that I do have a Chinese gear - the OPPO 205.

    I fully agree with you that we just want the best products from the world - no matter where is coming from.

    Cheers,

    Thanks! I have been in Beijing since 2002. I will most likely returning to Chicago in 3 years after I retire from our company. I am sure I will miss Beijing a lot too.
