Bottom Line:   
one hell of a class machine to use, dvd playback is all you need good blacks very deep and 3d looking, dvd sound on some 15" tannoys is outstanding again very deep and can fright the xxxx out of you very good sound, dvds have a fantastic sound to them and the dv09 lets you know this right away.
cd playback, bags of detail and very deep bass.
i have used a ps3 for bluray and the thing is the sound its all about the sound it just get you right in to the movie well done pioneer.

Bottom Line:   
The picture is wonderful, as is the audio. Especially, the CD audio. Wow! I think this has to be one of the best CD players ever designed. I own a decent Sony CD player via an optical connection. There's no comparison. As for movies, it's simply great! I've compared it to a lot of these progressive players, and I think this player can hang with the best of them. This is the reason why I haven't wasted my money with a new player. Obviously, blue-ray players are better. In the meantime, I'm happy with it. I would highly recommend this player to anybody. Of course, cables make a huge difference. Don't cut your system short with bad cables. You can find some good deals on Ebay.

Bottom Line:   
Got this unit used about 3 months ago in like new condition. Build quality is serious. CD playback is very impressive. Best I've ever heard in a DVD player. Transport is to die for. DVD play is also impressive, except that the player is very picky. Will not play dirty CDs or DVDs without skipping. Also, despite what others here have said, my unit will not read CDRs. My unit was made in 1999. And yes, the remote is bad. They should have used a backlit model like that on my Pioneer CLD D03 laserdisc player. Despite all of this, the unit is worth every bit of the $500 I paid for it used.

Bottom Line:   
I have had this unit for about 3 months now and am very impressed by the picture quality that it provides. It displays the stunning minute details in the superbit edition of the Fifth Element crisply. Im using a Panasonic 47WX49 HDTV as the monitor and since the DV-09 is not progressive scan, im very curious to see what the picture looks like with a nice external doubler. The half inch thick copper sheild adds weight to the unit but the picture and quiet playback is well worth the bulkyness. This unit also has a video circutry bypass if used as a CD player as well as cd analog outs. I have had one problem with it though....Sometimes during playback the laser picks up the tiniest of imperfections on the discs and freezes for a moment.
