All Quiet on the Oppo front?

Many Oppo fans were talking about getting their pre-ordered UDP-205's a month ago, but no new posts as to current status. I haven't heard a word. I kinda thought there would be a July release, but apparently not.

Anybody receive any news from Oppo in the past month? 
Yes, I signed up for the waiting list at least a month or two before I received the verifying email that I still wished to make the purchase. The two dates were different.
Ok. So there appears some confusion here. Everyone gets an auto-reply from Oppo email requesting that they verify their email address. Thereafter, months later, some folks get a second email confirming their interest in getting a player? Is that second Oppo email the same as requesting payment, or did Oppo send yet a third email requesting payment?

Below is the email I received on 5/9/18. I had entered my email address on the Oppo website about a month or 2 before saying I was interested in purchasing a 205.

On 8/29/18 I received an email from Oppo with a special link to purchase the 205 which I paid for immediately. I received the 205 9/6/18.

@mcgal thanks for your follow-up. That’s the same email I got back then. 
Yes, interesting. Oppo is using the inititial interest E-mail as the point of establishing the order of a buy offer, not the "verification of E-mail" for a future offer.

I verified my E-mail address on May 9, which seems to have been a date used for mass requests sent by them. 

With Aprox. 5,000 buyers requesting one, I would think Oppo would reconsider manufacturing these things or sell the rights to Cambridge Audio or someone interested in doing so. That's a large market for any high-end manufacturer for any product!
