Bottom Line:   
excellent picture quality and build and awesome adjustments for outgoing picture onto your hdtv screen. No dts master audio decoding yet although they say one is coming on a future upgrade from Pioneer. No ethernet connection so no live bd extras. excellent audio quality and plenty of subwoofer output from the analog connections which are 7.1 by the way. it of course also has hdmi connection which I didnt have on my older top of the line receiver. excellent signal to noise ratio and built in decoders. a heavy unit built very well and handome to look at too. bit slow loading blu ray discs like other machines out there but not a big deal. I found the setup not too bad on this player even though i have a receiver with no hdmi connections and I do let the player do all the decoding of codecs. Not worth the price if you pay anything close to the list price of $800 bucks considering there are other players out there that are probably every bit as good with even more features for half the price! I paid much less when I bought it on Ebay but still wasnt worth even what I paid but still a very good performing player in all regards except for the lack of dts master audio. It is a problem until they do a future upgrade for this player because many blu ray discs feature dts MA sound tracks which will be downgraded on this player to the lossy regular dts....which is still pretty damn good for most people! But an audiophile wants the advantage of the latest and greatest capability!
