Pioneer BDP-09FD Elite Blu-ray Player - Benchmark


Pioneer BDP 09FD Elite Blu-ray Player


Many people have been waiting for Blu-ray players to hit the magic price point of $200, where people think mass adoption will start to take place and it will slowly overtake DVD as the dominant home video format. However, there’s also another range of players that are starting to come out now, those of reference quality designs with virtually no expense spared. The BDP-09FD from Pioneer is their entry into that arena. Featuring a top of the line analog section, full compatibility with all areas of Profile 2.0, and high quality internal and external parts, how would it compare to a standard Blu-ray player?
