Pioneer BDP-52FD 3D Universal Blu-ray Player


Introduction to the Pioneer BDP-52FD Blu-ray Player

Of all the new equipment that I saw at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis in 2011, my favorite booth visit was to Pioneer. Showing me around their booth and their new products, it was obvious they had read our review of their last generation of Blu-ray players. They showed off that they had put in full colorspace support, fixed the edge enhancement issue that had come up, and put this all into a universal player for $400. After this, I was incredibly happy to get the BDP-52FD in for review to see how well these improvements fared.
