Pioneer UDP-LX500 for $699.99 with Massdrop coupon

Great price for the Pioneer UDP-LX500 for $699.99 with the Massdrop $400.00 coupon. Best price for UDP-LX500 I've seen is $999.99.

Not a very good sign for demand on the Pioneer especially considering it just came out and they can't even sell it at $400 off retail. Granted it's not advertised unless you are in the know but still.

I have no experience with Massdrop. But maybe the reason the sale was cancelled was due to other issues besides the lack of demand for the LX500.

"We have discovered that there was an error when setting up this drop. There has been a delay in acquiring these units."

Not sure if the "error" was the price, availability or lack of interest. So it will be interesting if there is another Massdrop offering for the LX500.

I am no expert on Massdrop, but it looks like there is a change in status now on the LX500 and the site seems to indicate it needs only 3 more purchase requests.

Do you have a link to Massdrop with the Pioneer LX-500? I just logged on and there is no listing in any form for the LX-500.

I requested this yesterday but it still stating that it needs three more people to sign up. It should have stated two more people after I requested it. I think this deal may be dead. Also here is no price listed. From reading the the 500 thread there seems to be a lot of operational issues with the player.

It is very expensive even at the discounted price.

Thanks. I clicked on the link but at that time it didn't show the "+3 purchasers needed". It currently doesn't show any price though.

I was thinking about picking up this player and upgrading to a 4k player from my OPPO. Is it a good one?

There’s a dedicated thread on this player that should answer all your questions.
