Summary: This is a great player and looks so much sturdier than the anorexic models being produced by Panasonic, Sony Samsung and the like. Plan to get a Pioneer VSX1223 or VSX2023 and partner it up. Plan to have it modded to Multi region playback next week then I can get rid of my anorexic Zone A and Zone B Panasonic Blu-ray players.
Summary: Pioneer has always been a quality make in my book, and having purchsed this finest of bluray players in this price range, I have to say I am well impressed. This machine is a big improvement on the Sony bluray player that it replaced.(half price when i bought my Sony TV) Superb picture quality, sound through my now aging Marantz surround amp is also very good. A big plus is that it is a smart player, to watch you tube on the big screeen is a big plus also.
Summary: I bought this as it recognises pretty much all forms of digital disc or file known to man - well, all the ones I need... I should emphasise, as certain reviewers here and elsewhere seem to have missed this, that this is a TRANSPORT, it does NOT have any on-board converters. This is fine for me, as it was always my plan to feed digital audio signals off into another device, and the coax digital output of the Pioneer is just what I needed.
Summary: This is the best blu ray you can buy plays all movies files and music which is a good feature Thuro the USB port all so like the feature were its plays 16/9 it in full screen on the tv so you don't get the two black bars at the top and bottom
Summary: It's about time we got rid of the.super slim rubbish that don't look the part next to a dts amplifier, I've be a fan of pioneer since seeing my grandfathers hifi back in the 80s I have a onkyo 1010 amplifier and I wanted a player that would look the part I ordered a Panasonic 730 blueray recorder but when I opened the box I was disappointed in the size, I have a Sony 500 blueray player that in my opinion was the best quality DVD player Sony ever made the build quality is...
Summary: Bought this to replace a Sony bdp-s470, previously considered an excellent blue ray player by the AV experts. I am happy to say this new player is an improvement in both the picture and sound departments. Watching some well known footage on some of my trusty discs has left me in no doubt it was well worth upgrading. Pictures have extra punch and clarity, sound is more clear and dynamic. Nextflix also streams well with great hd pictures and 5.1 sound.
