    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

I have the middle 3 - and agree with your choice. I also have the oppo 203 and love it. i have not heard the other two. Dutton Vocalion should have its own category - so much good stuff there.

OOPS!
Sorry if U stepped on your toes! No malintent meant.

My toes are all good--sorry if I came across as territorial! I like the orientation of your thread:

Mine was based on an outside announcement (superdeluxeedition); yours gives credit where credit is due (URBAN! URBAN! URBAN!)
Mine followed suit with SDE and asked for top 3; yours acknowledges our QQ need for MORE and asks for five
Mine was limited to releases; yours has two MORE categories!!!
Ultimately, I just wanted to make sure votes already cast were taken into consideration.

Now that you posted this, I actually envision a little curmudgeon @JonUrban statuette being produced. Our whole site officially votes on a best surround release. @Angie and the new owners hype the contest and make a big deal of delivering the URBIE to the winner. Interest is generated and more surround sound mixes are released in the hopes of winning a coveted URBIE. Oppo announces new disc players. We spend ever more money on our hobby. . . .

I stated similar in a recent, listening now, post.
This company have become so important in our love of surround music that they deserve their own poll section at least.
Perhaps the award should be called
The JU DVM of Merit (with bar...hic!!)

To spell that out, reads: The Jon Urban, Dutton Vocalion Medal of Merit. (nothing biased of course!!)
It can still go to other deserving releases.... :D
It just raises the bar.....( back to my favourite subject!!)
