After trying the new BDP-52FD and BDP-53FD, as well as owning the Yamaha BD-A1010, I have decided that the BDP-23FD and the BD-A1010 are going in my system. While the Yamaha BD-A1010 is a great SACD player because of its capability of converting DSD to PCM at 176.4 KHz, as well as a good Netflix streamer, my TV has a low gamma, resulting in a dark picture at times. The Yamaha nor the Pioneer BDP-52FD or BDP-53FD have a gamma control. This leads me back to the good ol' BDP-23FD, which I am now using for movies and standard audio CDs. It has the adjustable gamma control I need for DVDs and BDs, as well as the PQLS jitter reduction I like for BD audio streams and standard audio CDs. So now I hope this player will continue to be supported by Pioneer, and that it holds up for a long time. Even though I bought it for a closeout price last February, it was manufactured in March of 2009. What'll I do if this player dies and I can't find a new one anymore!
