    Yeah, it's actually better looking than my current fav the Oppo 93. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

    As much as I am a fan of Pioneer, I think these players will be sub par.

    We'll see. Its good they are actually making them, instead of being Sharps. The Elite, with the Marvell, has the potential to be great with some Oppo competition.

    I just find it strange that the 140 gives you SACD capability..but then only gives you 1 HDMI...I can understand no DVD-A playback..but only 1 HDMI isn't really going to compete with Oppo as an all around player..

    The LX55 has two, which will most likely be liek the 52FD elite. The 100 is not meant to compete with the Oppo, IMO.

    For sure. I expect them to be slow and light on features. My 23FD is a damn fine player it's just slow as all hell.

    I don't get the lack of DVD-A though. I mean sure it's dead, but if your going to offer SACD....

    I loved my 320, but it was damn slow. PQ was excellent.

    Im gonna hold off judgement until we see exactly what the 52FD brings, they arent even showing rear shots of it yet, and thats the flagship. The LX55 does both DVDA and SACD

    If the LX55 is actually £349.95, thats wild.

    For some reason Pioneer has supported SACD in various players over the years...especially DVD players..the funny thing is that SACD is making a small comeback...their sales are up..while CD sales are down..now a lot of the downward trend of CD sales is due to downloads..but since blu ray isn't going after the audiophile market..SACD and vinyl will fill the void..blu ray is really blowing it big time..they have the best application for audiophile recordings and they are just sitting there and doing nothing

    No doubt. Audiophiles are going back to Vinyl due to Blu's lack of joining the party.

    I'm Vinyl for home with Digital for my out of home listening. I will happily purchase Blu's that are 5.1 though like Rush's Moving Pictures, for 2 channel I'll stick with the grooves.
    I own some stuff.

    Concerts are, but studio releases aren't unfortunately.

    I really love the Blu video's I have of concerts, with HD audio, but I agree the selection sucks. Im not a big fan of sitting there non video (SACD), but I really do wish they'd break down and film some good concerts with HD cameras and uncompressed audio. The stuff I have like Incubus at Red Rocks, Pink (yeah yeah, its good) and Nickleback freaking rock. Gimme more dammit.

    Built with a focus on high-quality audio and video reproduction, the new players offer pristine 1080p picture as well as 3D video output with the latest HDMI 1.4a, allowing for passage of the high data transfer rate required by the Blu-ray 3D format. Additionally, all three models can up convert standard definition video sources to 1080p resolution for optimum image processing that delivers clear, sharp images with reduced image noise. Additionally, 36-Bit Deep Color support with compatible content and displays features smooth gradation steps with more accurate color precision and adds to overall high-quality color reproduction.

    Each model also supports the latest high-quality audio formats including DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD and Super Audio CD. Pioneer-exclusive technologies also improve the audio experience, a critical component to completing a fully immersive 3D experience. The Elite models offer Precision Quartz Lock System (PQLS) Bit-Stream Multi-channel for jitter-free reproduction of Blu-ray Disc, DVD-Video/Audio, Super Audio CD and CD content. When paired with a compatible Pioneer A/V receiver, PQLS precisely syncs the audio signals between the components for a true-to-life listening experience.

    The Elite models feature superior build quality and Pioneer’s new Sound Retriever Link and Stream Smoother Link features. These two new features detect the bit rate of both audio and video content and if necessary will send a command to a compatible Pioneer receiver to activate the Sound Retriever or Stream Smoother feature. The Sound Retriever feature enhances compressed audio files by restoring critical data lost during the compression process, while Stream Smoother enhances compressed video files to reduce compression noise and establish more detailed, finer images. The Stream Smoother technology is especially helpful with low bit-rate video sources originally intended for viewing on small screens such as smartphones.

    The BDP-53FD provides an extra HDMI output, Layered Chassis Construction and further enhances video quality by integrating the award-winning Marvell Qdeo video processor. Pioneer’s QDEO implementation allows for greater picture quality adjustments and enhanced up-scaling of lower bit-rate video content.

    The Pioneer BDP-140 is available for a suggested retail price of $199. The Elite BDP-52FD, featuring an RS-232 port for custom installation access and control, is available for a suggested retail price of $399. Featuring an armored chassis, the Elite BDP-53FD is available for a suggested retail price of $499.
