Are you booth talking about the OHC? It is a high prised noble Multimedia player and not a cheap one. If the box was about $30 than you can say "cheap", but not with the main target of $159.

If your scale for cheap vs expensive ranges from $30 - $159 then you need to widen your knowledge re the network media player sector and in particular high end players. They can cost $$$$'s from the likes of Linn, Naim, etc.

In between you have mid-range suppliers and then you have the low cheaper end where volumes are higher. Simple facts and economics.

$159 is expensive to my pocket and perhaps also yours. That is however totally different to what is out there and where a product falls, your own personal abilities to afford them or to prioritise them over say your family hols etc. I used to dream of owning some LinnAudio kit when young and into HiFi. Furthest I've got and could afford was speaker cable Big Grin

$159 is cheap compared to the $399-$450 they will be asking for the A-500 Pro.
So if $159 is expensive to you what would be $399?
The subjective concept of "cheap" means that everybody is right/wrong.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

It's mid range price. Not cheap, not expensive.

I want diamonds and a gold case on my next one ;o)

Y'know, I think, I think that a week from now, you'll be less in the mood for being amusing.

I see nothing on this site with the same target as the OHC. If i mean expensive than in the target of the OHC, players without HIFI Audio preamp and so one. It is logical that you found for every product something that is more expensiv. If i say f.e. an iPhone 6 is not a cheap smartphone its an expensiv one, everyone would understand in wich target range this is sayd an no-one would show a website with a $80.000 iphone and diamonds.

To be clear: in the range of RK81/82 boxes, Wetek ($99), Cubox-i ($125), Rapsberry, intel-mini-PC ($150) , Chromebox ($144), Amazon Fire TV ($79) and maybe new the nVidia Shield TV.
I formyself had driven an abandoned ARCTIC MC001-E (barbone $99) wich runs times faster than the OHC and had never problerms with DTS-HD, and since i'm in 3D i'm using an $50 Raspberry.

We don't talking about anything with HIFI, we are talking about a cheap media box without anything, for this it is expensive.
And for $159 its too expensive for this support quality - and supplying never the promised box.

FYI it was about the announced Cloudmedia A-500Pro with HiFi costing $399

the $159 price would have been fair if the chip manufacturer would have come true to his mediaplayer promise instead of selling just another android system.
Openhour was left holding the bag and we the users are left with just another android box.... it is fast thoughTongue

the company knows that, or what do you think why a "company" charges money on kickstarter for promises instead of selling the products if ready.

Bull. read up on Kickstarter before you make these statements.

Couldmedia doesn't get dime before they delivered the product to customers.

Kickstarter customers just pledge to buy, and kickstarter hold the credit only to be deducted after shipment to that customer.

Only thing this does for Cloudmedia is to guarantee the first 100+ sales, so they can start development, the kickstarter customers know they take a risk of buying a unsuccessfully developed player, but they know that in advance so wont be whining about it if it fails.
Good thing is they set a price point that will allow Cloudmedia to invest resources into quality development.
New road for Cloudmedia so fingers crossed.

As for Mr. Pista.... I still have my Openhour box and nowhere does it say DTS HD-MA, then I looked over on the website..... no mention of any CODEC support, box says Android, H265, 4KUHD, XBMC.

The only thing they did was mention on the forum that they expected to support DTS HD-MA in future as promised by RockChip.

I'm still waiting for someone to point me towards a better RK3288 based android player..........
