Pioneer BDP-51FD Blu-ray Player – Benchmark

 

The Pioneer BDP-51FD is currently the only non-Elite Blu-ray player that Pioneer offers, but it is far from a budget model. Pioneer has a well deserved reputation for offering high quality DVD players in the past and is certainly trying to continue...

Pioneer BDP-51FD Blu-ray Player

 

Pioneer unveiled its first non-Elite Blu-ray player with the BDP-51FD. At first glance, its large chassis and high-gloss appearance might make you think it's an Elite line player. However, this player is the first of the classic Pioneer line.

Pioneer BDP-51FD Blu-ray Player

DVD video processing was good, but I saw combing with static menus. This distracted me throughout most of my testing and was unlike previous Pioneer models I've tested before. Thankfully, this didn't manifest with normal video playback.

Pioneer BDP-51FD review

 

Pioneer's BDP-51FD Blu-ray player produces picture and sound quality that's way above its station

Dapper design ; detailed, natural images ; sounds refined and musical

DTS-HD Master Audio decoding is still months away ; only Profile 1.1

The BDP-51FD produces picture and sound quality way above its station - what are you waiting for?

Pioneer BDP-51FD review

 

Pioneer has slummed it with this ‘budget' BD spinner, based on its higher-end models. How does it fare?

Pioneer BDP-51FD review

 

Is the BDP-51FD a wolf in sheep's clothing?

Blu-ray pictures ; Multichannel analogue outs

Profile 1.1, slow disc loading and boot-up times

The Profile 1.1 spec and slow disc loading are a shame, but scintillating picture quality is its saving grace

Pioneer BDP-51FD

 

In many ways, the new Pioneer BDP-51FD is more of a no-frills performance-centric home theater kit than most of its peers in the market.

Outlook The Pioneer BDP-51FD should fit in nicely for users concerned about fine pictures and decent music playback. It also packs enough tweaking options to keep enthusiasts occupied for a long time. However, if a full Blu-ray interactive experience...
