Where were you when I asked what player to buy in this thread?
I went for the BDP-320 based on recommendations there. I wanted the best analog outs for under $200, as I don't plan to upgrade my non-HDMI receivers for another year or two.
Besides, I have a soft spot for Pioneer- it was my first ProLogic HT surround receiver almost 20 years ago that served my Laserdisk theater well through the 90's, my first after market in-dash cassette receiver for my first car 25 years ago, the first consumer grade 24/96 digital audio out capable DVD player ~10 years ago (525), the fun 3 disc DV-302 DVD changer about 9 years ago, and I'm still using the well regarded 1014 THX receiver in my dedicated basement theater. Pioneer also served me well in the 90's with cassette decks, turntables and 100-200 disc linear and rotary CD changers (I miss those...)
Perhaps in recent years the mass market Pioneer stuff (and maybe the Elite stuff too) has declined in quality- the last Pioneer product I bought prior to this BDP-320 was the 1014 receiver around 2004...
Oddly, most of my current gear are "P" companies- PSB speakers, Panasonic and Philips DVD players, Panasonic DVD recorders and SVHS decks, Pioneer...
