Pioneer BDP-05FD

 

The Pioneer BDP-05FD's sound specs just might be enough to compensate for the diminutive 1.1 Blu-ray profile.

With an already established brand name in the world of flat-panel HDTV equipment, Pioneer is carrying over that high-end approach and philosophy into its latest top-shelf Blu-ray player, the BDP-05FD. Due to a declining marketplace, the BDP-05FD has...

I've had the player now for approximately seven months now and have had no major complaints that would have me take points away from the player. As all the firmware updates have been released, I added them to the player and it just keeps getting better.

Beautiful aesthetics, quick loading times, built-in Dolby TruHD and DTS-HD Decoders (after firmware update) using Wolfson Audio DAC, Great Video Processing

Indicator light to notify one that that front display screen is off seems a little redundant

I used the 7.1 analog audio outputs whith my older Lexicon MC-8 sound processor. I connected the video via hdmi (with a dvi converter) directly to my tv. I liked this player, but I had to return it. It has an incredible picture and easy setup. It has...

It looks great in the a/v rack. Good pic quality on my 1080i 57" tv. Faster than previous models. Great sound quality with CDs

NO DTS HD MA (it will be added through upgrade later) but even when updated, it will downgrade the 7.1 MA signal to 5.1 if you are using the analog outputs. Hard to find frontpanel buttons in dark. Remote not backlit

It took a while for this player to grow on me or change my perspective to a positive light, because of a few technical issues I had with managing the player or its basic functions. In comparison to other players, certainly the Elite 05 is a step above...

Excellent video processing. 7.1 or 5.1 Analog audio outputs for oldtimers

Too close or the same to the lesser priced model BDP-51FD. No direct switching capability between audio and video formats for comparison or easy flexibility
