Thought i would officialy start a thread since I just picked up the pioneer bdp-51 from the best buy/ magnolia. First impressions. The player has the nice typical pioneer gloss black finish. The player does bitstream dts hd ma and true hd out of the box. The player i got does not have the final version of firmware. I have to call pioneer about getting the final version. Ive been told the 2nd shipment should have the final firmware, however im not sure if thats true or not. In terms of standard dvd player im impressed. I currently have a bdp 1400 and ps3 and i can say the upconversion is on par with my xa2 and the 79avi. I havent had much time to dial it in yet but i will report back when i have more time. Here are a few pics.
