Pioneer Elite BDP-94HD
This is my first in home experience with BD, so I may be overly impressed. I just wanted everyone to know this fact. Iíve seen the different players in showroom, but nothing at home. I finally couldnít wait for the prices to drop any more.
Just Received my new BD player on Monday night, the HDMI cables arrived Tuesday, plugged the BD & DVR into the Purelink HS 42A switch, connected the switcher to the Pioneer Elite 50" plasma. Took the optical out, from the Purelink switcher and connected it to my Lexicon MC12B. Turned on all the equipment, dropped in a BD disc - SOUND & PICTURE! Did the final set up on the BDP-94HD, dropped in Superman returns (which came with the player) and sat down.
Itís impressive, from 6 Ė 8 feet the only thing that youíre missing in the view is three dimensions! Hair is just like looking in a mirror. The sound is equally impressive, as explosions or bullets scream by your ears and they are coming right at superman.
I then loaded a DVD from my collection. The up-conversion was very impressive! The picture was softer than the BD, but the image was very viewable. The Pioneer Elite BD will make my collection of DVDís live much longer.
I will let you all know more as I audition additional BD & DVD movies. But the first look and sound are impressive.
