Pioneer BDP-160 review


Pioneer's BDP-160 Blu-ray player is unrepentantly old school. For starters, it looks like a Blu-ray deck should, rather than something impractical cobbled together for a Shoreditch design competition. And secondly, it even handles some of the more...

Super Audio CD compatibility; old-school design; picture quality; broad file compatibility
