With the vacuum created by Oppo given their exit from the UHD and universal player market... does that leave the door open for another company to enter this space
one known and with a long and strong heritage of putting out some beautiful, amazing and very capable players ?
Pioneer to fill 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player gap left by Oppo?
"An image of what looks to be two soon-to-be-unveiled boxes covered by cloth has been posted on Pioneer’s Japanese website.
And as the page, spotted by Inside CI, has ‘BDLX’ in the URL, we’d put good money on them being Blu-ray players. That's based on the model numbers of its most recent players, 2014's BDP-LX58 and BDP-LX88.
What's more, it seems likely the mystery players would be of the 4K flavour - especially when you consider that the Japanese text on the teaser image reads ‘gyouten’ (which translates to ‘dawn’), with the bottom line translating to ‘finally’. That certainly suggests a new chapter for its players, and the kind we’ve been waiting for."

Steve may from the uk similarly has posted a couple of articles on the same subject as per below,
so we look forward to this dawn... it appears there will be two of them. two moons, two players under wraps like the two lx58 lx88 players that these will likely follow...
Pioneer as some might know are the one making the pc uhd drives so why not most likely to release a new line of uhd players for home cinemas ... though suspect like the lx58/88 it will be more in the universal player ilk with balanced out and sacd/dvda replay on top of other discs cd/dvd/blu-ray and all to stellar level like previous players
so here looking on in anticipation....
if there are more hints of news...do please post ....
