Hello all ,
I took home a BDP53FD Yesterday for many reasons.
1) To figure out all it's issues
2) To see if I could own it myself
3) To better understand where Pioneer Elite is at with Blu ray players as I have not fully liked one yet.
I currently own a Cambridge Audio 650BD which I fully love except for toggle power(I'll explain later). I've wanted personally a Elite Blu Ray player (Universal) Since Blu Ray came out. I'm a Universal player user as I enjoy only having one player do all my Disc use (SACD/ DVD AUDIO/ CD/ DVD/ BLU RAY, HDCD).
I did the 3.11 Firmware update on the 53 Yesterday as it just came out. I'll go into the issues with Version 3.01 later.
For now if anyone has a experience with this player , feel free to posts all your thoughts here. I'm gonna fully test the hell out of this player and find all the good and ugly about it. I got a few hours in last night and I plan a few more tonight. By this weekend I should know enough to write a full review.
