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!

It's about time we got rid of the.super slim rubbish that don't look the part next to a dts amplifier, I've be a fan of pioneer since seeing my grandfathers hifi back in the 80s I have a onkyo 1010 amplifier and I wanted a player that would look the part I ordered a Panasonic 730 blueray recorder but when I opened the box I was disappointed in the size, I have a Sony 500 blueray player that in my opinion was the best quality DVD player Sony ever made the build quality is outstanding along with the sound and picture but slow at loading, the pioneer is a welcome edition to my onkyo amp plus Cambridge audio minx 7.1 speakers, the sound and picture is very good for the price plus the pioneer is well built and I love the retro hifi look unlike the rest of the cheap rubbish Sony Panasonic make, we don't want cheap thin players anymore people will always pay more for quality well made players like this pioneer well done pioneer

So far so good. I started to look at higher end blue ray players after my LG BP620 started to develop a HDMI signal fault where the screen would constantly flicker without loss of audio. It was out of warranty and didn't feel the cost of repair would be worth while and besides, I was wanting to go for a more higher end model, so the LG has gone up to the bedroom.
I had read various reviews on the Pioneer BDP 450 on here, AVforums etc and a few regular complaints kept cropping up this player regarding disc noise and freezing issues, which seem to be improving with firmware upgrades.
I settled on the BDP 450 despite these complaints as being the owner of the Pioneer VSX-827k AV receiver I am impressed with their build quality, sound performance plus their highly regarded reputation speaks for itself.

My BDP 450 was purchased from Peter Tyson on Amazon's marketplace for around £159. Delivery was prompt and tracked via DPD.
Inside the box is the player itself, remote control, batteries, 2 pin EU plug, 3 pin UK plug and usual manuals. The player is surprisingly light given its size but if you own other Pioneer devices, it should compliment them well in terms of dimensions and ability to stack them.

I'm no AV expert and I didn't purchase this device for the amount of file types it can play or stream so I won't comment about that. I bought it purely for playing Blu Ray/ DVD and CD discs.

Setup is very simple. When you power it up it has a simple set up guide of 5 steps, and that's it. It's more or less ready to put a disc in and play. Of course you can go into its menus to tinker until your heart is content. Navigation around its 3 sub menus is straight forward.

This is a great player and looks so much sturdier than the anorexic models being produced by Panasonic, Sony Samsung and the like. Plan to get a Pioneer VSX1223 or VSX2023 and partner it up. Plan to have it modded to Multi region playback next week then I can get rid of my anorexic Zone A and Zone B Panasonic Blu-ray players.

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.
