Quick review of the 320.
Pioneer KURO 6020
Onkyo Pre/Pro 885
Emotiva IPS-1 amp
The unit is pretty light and slim. The disc tray is sturdy. It has a beautiful finish! Its quite slow (load/start up) compared to the PS3.
PQ---> Excellent! Slightly better than my PS3. The source direct mode gives me a slightly
more neutral, flat and less noisy picture. Its sharp yet smooth. Most of the time however, the PQ is hard to distinguish when comparing to the PS3. Upscaling is similar to the HQV-Reon on my pre/pro. However I find both pretty soft. I prefer the upscale done by my TV.
AQ--->Decoding done in the player is pretty nice. However, letting my Onkyo do the decoding added more of a dynamic punch to the mix. I found this to be more of a measurable difference than the difference in PQ when comparing to the PS3. I'd say the audio decoded on my Pre/pro is about 30% better. I like the auto mode, which automatically determines whether or not your receiver can decode the encoded track and lets the receiver do the decoding if its capable of doing so. Nice!
Pioneer network server connection failed. Hope they fix it soon.
So far, I'm very happy with the unit. I just wish pioneer would make the unit a little faster with a firmware update in the future.
