Expert review by: Adrian Justins (

Pioneer BDP-450 review


Despite its enticing price tag, Pioneer's BDP-450 is aimed squarely at the home cinema enthusiast with audiophile leanings. Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio might not be exactly in the rudest of health as far as formats go, but there are plenty of legacy...

Exceptional SACD playback; decent DVD-A and Blu-ray performance; iOS and Android control app

Meagre online features; flakey multimedia streaming; poor remote

Plenty of enthusiast features, but its price means it won't suit everyone

Pioneer BDP-450 review


A superb Blu-ray player from Pioneer that challenges the best in class

Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality ; Fantastically focused and solid sound ; Twin HDMI outputs

Limited smart features ; No wi-fi

As budget decks go, this is a beauty. It's a real rival for the top performers

Pioneer's BDP-450 is here to tempt you to step-up from budget Blu-ray - and tempt you it will

You can buy cheaper, but the Pioneer is more than worth its asking price

Pioneer BDP-450


plays multiple formats ; excellent picture and sound quality ; dual hdmi output feeds ; supports SACD and DVD Audio

No analogue audio inputs, so no support for older receivers which need audio inputs
