Pioneer Blu-ray players 2011 - BDP-140/BDP-440/BDP-LX55/BDP-53FD - Page 10

post #271 of 1810
I did some searching on YouTube using the key words "Pioneer CEDIA 2011" and I found this video. From what I can tell, it sounds like Chris Walker (walkamo) doing all the talking. He says that the BDP-140 will be shipping this month. The BDP-52FD will be shipping toward the end of this month. The BDP-53FD will be shipping next month. Perfect! Just in time for my month-long Halloween horror fest!

The BDP-140 will be shipping late this month (September). The BDP-52FD will be in October and the BDP-53FD will be in December (Still working on our implementation of the QDEO)....

Edit: I'm getting the BDP-53FD as I need 2 hdmi outs. Can't wait! It should go nicely with my Elite Pro-70X5FD that's being delivered tomorrow
post #276 of 1810
Do any of these upcoming blu-ray players have a source direct mode?, so that I can use the video processor in my Pioneer VSX-1120 receiver?

Thanks

Hi Steve,

Both models use the AK4480 32-Bit 192khz DAC.

I just received the day before the show, so I have not had a chance to play with one (Or listen to one yet). I will be back in the office a week from tomorrow. I will pop the top and try and take some pictures...

Thanks,

What would be the point of this device when pairing it with an Elite receiver (SC-07)? I would think a $99 Apple TV would be just as good or better.

And if you're looking just for DAC use, might as well get Cambridge Audio DAC Magic.

Well David,

I find it intriguing that you would question my integrity since you know me.

If you re-read my posts you will see that I received the N-30 and N-50 Networked Media Players just before the show. I have had the BDP-140 and BDP-52 players for quite some time. (Just got a semi-working BDP-53FD just before the show).

I did not receive the spec data for the N-30 and N-50 until the last minute which is why I had to look it up.

Also, I replaced the Oppo BDP-93 (Not 95) with a BDP-52FD.

Since you have not been an employee of Pioneer (Canada) in sometime. I am responsible for all of the Home Electronics Product Planning, not just the Blu-ray players.

Lads, let's move on...

Chris, would you mind posting some pics of the gui/osd of the 140/52? Can you confirm if source direct will re-appear in these players? Thanks for posting as usual Chris.

Hi Winston, I am currently on my way to maryland to visit my mother for the week. Unfortunately source direct did not make it back. I will post gui images when I get back.

Thanks.

Hello Chris,

Thanks for the info.

You said the 53FD will be available in december, but some dealers in France talk about october for the BDP-LX55.
Wich if I'm correct, is the european version of the 53FD.

post #289 of 1810
In South East Asia the LX55 will also be released by the end of October too.

Thanks Chris as usual for the information. Nice to have you back as a regular on the Pioneer Blu-ray threads on AVS Forum. BTW, the 53FD looks like one helluva of a BD player! I can't wait till December now!

Hi, Chris. Is there any way you could provide a link to the PDF manuals for the BDP-140, BDP-52FD, and BDP-53FD so we can become familiar with their operation before they are released? Thanks!

Depends on what format your audio files are in. The n-30 seems to be a competitor to the Logitech squeezebox touch with the added ability to process 24/192k files and having airplay capability. The N-50 adds DAC capability. This would probably make more sense to someone who is running a two channel or hybrid home theater system where most of the music is listened to through separate preamp or integrated. This is only for music streaming, so if you don't stream music to your Sc-07 or the DLNA capability is fine, then I guess it wouldn't be of much use for you. Apple TV is limited in audio formats and tops out at 16/44 resolution files.
post #294 of 1810
Chris, I have an SC-35, and would like to know if PQLS will be applied to SACD and DVD-Audio with my receiver and the BDP-53FD
post #295 of 1810
Crossing my fingers that load times are going to be good. I still have my BDP-51fd.....its slooooow. I am bummed that the source direct is not present as I just purchased a VSX-52 receiver and it also has a Marvell processor that will not be utilized. If source direct was available I'd be able to get the 52fd and save some $$$$$$$$ to put towards an Elite TV .
post #296 of 1810
What audio DAC will be used in the BDP-140 and BDP-440? Separate or integrated into the SoC?

Good point, most of my CDs are ripped to Apple lossless. The great thing about the Apple TV though is that it has HDMI out which will let your receiver process your audio files. It will also do video over AirPlay which the new Pioneer N don't support.
post #298 of 1810
While i was googling for n-50 network player, i came across a website and saw a photo of n-50 network player.

Under the n-50 were two pioneer units which looked like a stereo amplifier and a cd player and they cosmetically matched the n-50.

Does anybody know about new pioneer stereo components? or did anyone who have been at IFA ever seen these components?

No Source Direct, no sale. I'll keep my 23 FD until it dies.
post #300 of 1810
why do you want source direct when the internal upscaler is already the most amazing upscaler on the market?
