Remember those late 2010 and early 2011 Pioneer Blu-ray players which were Sharp rebadges, with Pioneer's PQLS? Anything is possible, especially in the beginning of the murging process. I'm not...

I never tried it with my SC-81, but with my VSX-32, the only way to accomplish renaming/reassigning inputs would be to leave HDMI Control Off. As soon as I turned it back on again,...

I have a Sony BDP-S6200, which has absolutely no analog audio/video output. It is small enough to be used as an AC-powered portable CD/SACD player. There are times I plan on snatching it from the...

In North America, Sony players even refuse DVDs if they use Pal, even if they are for all regions. This isn't fair for foreign home video distributors who plan on selling internationally. The only...

Out of curiosity, I checked all the firmware files for the 2014 lineup. The 1200 and 3200 use the same firmware with 19 in the filenames. The 5200 is the only player to use the firmware with 20 in...

From the way it was worded, Pioneer home A/V products will be distributed by Pioneer & Onkyo USA / Pioneer Home Entertainment USA. To me, that sounds like Pioneer will still be the manufacturer. ...

For 2015, do you think Pioneer would do like they did in 2009 (the BDP-23FD/LX52 and BDP-320 being based on the BDP-05FD/LX71, BDP-09FD/LX91, and BDP-51FD from 2008), and release a model with similar...

I'll pass on 4K UHD Blu-ray

I read somewhere that (1) they don't plan on remastering older movie and TV titles, only future ones, which aren't as good as classics and older titles of today, (2) if they stick with 25GB and 50GB...

Compared to my Pioneer SE-A1000 open-air headphones, the Yamaha HPH-MT220 seems to emphasize midrange, yet they are probably one of the best closed back type headphones. So far, emphasis on midrange...

Pioneer USA never posted a manual to the BDP-85FD and BDP-88FD. However, Pioneer Europe posted a BDP-LX58/LX88 manual and firmware. So I read about the advanced settings and initial setup menu. ...
