I can't believe this player is three years old! Yet I've been into home theater since Fall of 2004 and have collected lots of players along the way. I have found that I love the functionality of Philips-based players, yet love the A/V quality of Pioneer players before they turned to Sharp and TCL for their OEMs. For me, after some A-to-B comparisons, I can hear a difference when turning PQLS on and off. After some research, I notice that Sony has dropped their jitter reduction feature, and so has Denon (DenonLink), yet Pioneer still includes PQLS. So as long as they keep that feature, I will live with my BDP-23FD until they choose a better OEM, such as Inkel (Denon/Marantz/Yamaha), BBK (Cambridge/Oppo), or someone better than Sharp or TCL. And in the event Pioneer no longer supports PQLS, then I would have to go with Denon or Marantz and get a receiver with multi-channel analog inputs.
