Pioneer BDP-LX71

 

The Pioneer LX71 is a great Blu-ray player, despite a slow loading speed for interactive discs and the high price.

Picture and sound quality ; Styling is symmetrical and lovely ; Great selection of outputs including 7.1 audio

It's quite big ; Expensive ; Only Profile 1.1 ; No internal DTS-HD decoding (yet)

If you can get this for a good price, go for it. Otherwise, we seriously love the Panasonic DMP-BD35 and suspect the BD50 will be top of its class. We also like the PS3, which is half the price and loads interactive content over twice as fast, although...

Very good build, picture and audio quality. Easy to set up. Looks great

No DTS-HDMA internal decoding yet (due early 2009). Not a huge step up from the cheaper 51 model

It offers less than the Sony 550 which is a third of the price and far behind the Panasonic BD-55 which won't be in Australia but is still a better machine at half the price.
