Conclusion: If picture quality is your main concern, the BDP-320 won't disappoint: This is one of the most professional BD players, offering some the best video technology available - and all at an extremely fair price. On the other hand, buyers will have to make do without YouTube videos and DLNA features. They'll also have to put up with very long loading times.
Pros: Outstanding Blu-ray movie picture - including 24p., DVD picture quality also impresses., HD-audio output as bitstream., BD-Live support., Extensive video settings.
Cons: Extremely long loading times., The fans are a little too loud.
Excerpt: (1 items) Pioneer’s BDP-320Pioneer’s BDP-320 sends gorgeous pictures to an HDTV, but it lacks the Web streaming multimedia capabilities of even lower priced Blu-ray Disc players. Pop a Blu-ray disc into the BDP-320 and you’ll get muted yet beautiful and natural-looking colors, less saturated than those produced by our reference player, a Sony PlayStation 3, but more pleasing to the eye.
Pros: Attractive, easy-to-navigate onscreen menus, Superior to very good images
Excerpt: With a long history in optical disc technology, Pioneer has been slow to develop new and innovative features in its Blu-ray players. While its previous offerings have been on the upper end of the pricing range, the company’s players have left a lot to be desired. Last fall, I reviewed the Pioneer Elite BDP-05FD player for our sister publication, UltimateAVMag.com.
Conclusion: The Pioneer BDP-320 is not for everyone. Its outstanding video performance, Source Direct feature and flexible audio outputs make it a good fit for an audiophile or video aficionado who wants the player to fit in with an older (non-HDMI) high end receiver or preamp/processor. But its slow loading times and lack of internet streaming features may rule it out for the average Blu-ray player buyer. If audio and video performance is all that matters to you -- and you're...
Pros: Outstanding Blu-ray image quality and excellent DVD upconversion, Excellent sound quality over analog outputs with flexible configuration and bass management, Source Direct mode allows pure pass through to display or outboard processor
Cons: Slower to load than the line at the DMV, No IPTV or internet streaming features, Some non-intuitive set-up options, A little finicky on disc playback
Excerpt: Regular readers will recognise the Pioneer BDP-320 from previous tests this year. Back then it weighed in as the most expensive player on the roster, but it managed to comfortably justify the extra outlay with a level of performance that left most of the competition trailing in its wake.
Pros: Superb styling and build quality, looks and sounds great with BD and DVD, slick interface and on-screen menus
Conclusion: Wykonana bardzo starannie czarna obudowa urządzenia utrzymana jest w stylistyce o wiele droższych modeli z serii LX. Jednak w odróżnieniu od nich, na jej tylnej ściance nie ma wielokanałowego wyjścia analogowego. BDP-320 został wyposażony we wszystkie najnowsze dekodery audio z Dolby TrueHD i DTS-HD Master Audio włącznie, ale dysponuje tylko stereofonicznym wyjściem analogowym i nie będzie dobrze współpracował ze starszymi modelami wzmacniaczy - tą drogą nie prześlemy...
Pros: Wysokiej jakości obraz, Mocny, przestrzenny dźwięk, Rozbudowana funkcjonalność
Cons: Brak wyjścia 7.1, Nieco za drogi, Przeciętna szybkość działania
