-05 has touch capacitance controls vs. buttons on the 51
-05 has glossy black metal front plate (likely to enable touch cap.) vs. glossy black plastic front plate on the 51
-05 has gold plated rear terminals vs. standard terminals on the 51
-05 has primarily gold highlights vs. silver highlights on the 51
-05 has amber LED display vs. white LED display on the 51
-05 remote has metal buttons vs. plastic buttons on 51 - enter button feels cheap on both, however.
-Both have the same analog audio DACs
-Both have identical output quality over HDMI (Audio & Video)
-Both have the Pioneer-specific PQLS jitter-elimination circuit
-Both have a general jitter-reduction circuit
-Both support the same sound formats, have the same outputs, and support the same features in software
-Both are of the same general build quality
-Both use the same firmware
(Hope I got it right as I took it from my web page: http://www.pioneerfaq.info/english/b...ion=lx71vs51fd
witch I in the first place took from post 7 in this thread)
