Product Description

Although keenly priced, the Pioneer BDP450 is a true universal player. This means that as well as the usual Blu-ray, DVD and CD discs, it also plays SACDs and DVD-Audio discs. These formats are capable of some of the highest quality audio possible and a vital part of many audiophiles' music collections. Combined with the ability to play a massive range of other formats, including MKV and DivX HD, the BDP450 has the ability to be the only disc player you'll ever need. It's not just the variety of discs that the BDP450 plays that makes it special, it's the quality with which it plays them. The advanced PQLS jitter reduction system ensures a smooth and natural sound quality when connected to a suitable Pioneer AV receiver. Even when connected to another brand of receiver, though, the Pioneer still impresses. In addition to the first-rate audio performance, the BDP450 also boasts class-leading video. A 36-bit Deep Colour circuit ensures a wider expanse of colours for a more subtle, true to life picture. What's more, this Pioneer Blu-ray player also comes with Qdeo video processing technology. This helps deliver consistently high-quality video, whatever the source. Another great feature with the BDP450 is Stream Smoother Link. As the name suggests, Stream Smoother Link enhances the video quality of compressed, streamed video from sites such as YouTube. Use the standard LAN connection or optional Wi-Fi dongle and connect up to your home network hub. From here you can get access to the best of the web via applications such as YouTube, Picasa and, for the first time on a Pioneer, Netflix. You can also stream content from your PC or media server via DLNA. What's more, all this is easy to control via Pioneer's unique Apple/Android control app, iControlAV2012. In addition to this you'll also find twin HDMI sockets and an additional, front-mounted USB socket.

Bought this to replace a Sony bdp-s470, previously considered an excellent blue ray player by the AV experts. I am happy to say this new player is an improvement in both the picture and sound departments. Watching some well known footage on some of my trusty discs has left me in no doubt it was well worth upgrading. Pictures have extra punch and clarity, sound is more clear and dynamic. Nextflix also streams well with great hd pictures and 5.1 sound. The other bonus (and a contributing factor to me buying it) is that its a welcome return to a proper sized piece of kit that looks good and stands proud....none of this flimsy small plastic crap most players seem to be these days. Enjoy!

I have been using this product for three weeks and have to say that for the money, the Pioneer BDP-450 is an absolute bargain. It has twin HDMI to split video and audio signals, it plays SACD, DVD-Audio, DVD, Blu-Ray, CD and so far every format of video I have tried. Now being able to play everything is pointless unless it's played well, the Pioneer delivers a performance that would rival much more e pensive universal players.

Set up is simple so long as you follow the clear instructions. If you're after a smart player, the Pioneer won't let you watch Netflix etc, but you can go online for updates and BDLive. This is the only negative I can say about the player and it's not a major issue in reality.

The remote is well laid out and you can also download Pioneer's app to control the player with your iPad for example. On my rack the player is very discrete and in use is silent with the option to turn the display off completely.

Blu-Ray films are presented in deep, rich colours and sound as the director meant it to with more than enough audio options to please everyone. The opening scene of Saving Private Ryan is delivered in superb detail with sounds zooming around the room. The Pioneer keeps up with the fast paced video and audio bringing the brutal reality of war into the room. Another movie I tried was Gravity, and again the BDP-450 delivered the film in amazing clarity. Deep, dark blacks with rich colours and atmospheric sound gives the viewer a visual and audio treat.

Now for the BDP-450's party piece, the multi-format capability. I have a large CD, SACD & DVDAudio collection and have to say that this player produces amazing audiophile sound quality. Peter Gabriel's So album on SACD through the player is simply stunning. The player plays the 5.

GOD KNOWS HOW THIS AS BEEN GIVEN 5 STARS .
I'VE HAD IT 18 MONTHS AND HAD NOTHING BUT TROUBLE WITH IT !
I'VE A PANASONIC WHICH COST ME £60 WHICH IS A BRILLIANT PLAYER COMPARED TO THIS PILE OF GARBAGE .
FIRST OF ALL IT LOOKS BIG AND CHUNCHY ~ ALUMINIUM CASING . BUT WEIGHS NOTHING . OBVIOUSLY ALL THE MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT ON THE GOOD LOOKS .

PROBLEMS >
THE DVD TRAY IS TOO SHALLOW & WHEN OPEN WHERE THE DISC FITS IS TOO CLOSE TO THE FRONT PANEL CAUSING IT TO KNOCK AGAINST THE METAL FACIA .

NO FULL TIME OF DISC CAN BE DISPLAYED .

IT WON'T RESPOND TO THE REMOTE MOST OF THE TIME ! THE REMOTE NEEDS TO BE POINTED ABOUT 3 INCH INFRONT OF THE GLASS PANEL .

THE PICTURE CONSTANTLY FREEZES WHILE THE SOUND CONTINUES .
THE PLAYER PLAYS FILMS FOR ABOUT AN HOUR THEN FREEZES UP
AND WON'T RESPOND TO THE REMOTE OR BUTTONS ON THE FRONT PANEL .

THE HDMI OUTPUTS ARE SLACK CAUSING EVEN CHEAP LIGHTWEIGHT CABLES TO MOVE AND CUT THE PICTURE AND SOUND OFF .

IT'S NOISEY WHEN YOU TURN IT ON ~ A IRRATATING CLUNKING NOISE .

IT DOESN'T RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL SETTING .

TO BE HONEST IT'S A DISGRACE TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE PIONEER NAME .

IF YOU HAVE MONEY TO BURN ~ BUY IT !

YOU CAN BUY A LOT BETTER PLAYER FOR A 3RD OF THE PRICE !

I bought this as it recognises pretty much all forms of digital disc or file known to man - well, all the ones I need...

I should emphasise, as certain reviewers here and elsewhere seem to have missed this, that this is a TRANSPORT, it does NOT have any on-board converters. This is fine for me, as it was always my plan to feed digital audio signals off into another device, and the coax digital output of the Pioneer is just what I needed.

My use of it so far has been to play DVD-A and DVD-V, so my comments are only about those. Oh, and stereo only, as I don't do surround.

DVD-A fed into a 24 bit, 96kHz capable DAC highlights the effortless superiority of the sound compared to standard CD versions of the same mix (the 40th anniversary King Crimson re-issues for example), more detail in the instruments and voice, better separation within the mix, more impact. Shame this medium has all but disappeared aside from a few specialist re-issues.

DVD-V, using a variety of music DVDs, gives very good picture quality and also very good sound, for example with the likes of Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense or Spinal Tap, both of which I have seen many, many times over the years in cinemas and on DVD in domestic set ups. Can't complain at all! Very good.

Can't/won't comment on SACD capabilities, as I already have a high end SACD player, but it looks to me (correct me if I'm wrong) that the Pioneer converts DSD to PCM before out putting it.

Set up was simple. Talks nicely via HDMI to my Sony TV.

Haven't had cause to use USB yet, but the device having USB connections was a definite attraction for possible future uses.

Internet capable features have not been used, as our internet here is useless, so I cannot comment.

Overall, very pleased with the Pioneer, which does what I wanted it too, and has capabilities which I will, no doubt, use in future.
