I don't think the slow load up times can be overcome anytime soon. It would push costs of the units up. However a High End Krell, Meridian, etc. could likely make a unit that would truly eliminate this problem because they can afford the more expensive processing chips.

I'd pay $6k for a BD 2.0 player that was a tank and performed like a world class unit should.

I think Halcro's real decision to not make a next gen player was that there wasn't a winner. Now there is. So there is little reason for anyone to hold back.

I know Arcam put their BD R&D into overdrive with the recent BD winning news.
