Pioneer Announces 4 New Blu-Ray Players

Posted on Jun 29 2008 - 2:46pm by Richard Sharp

Finally there’s some good news on the Blu Ray Player front. For many months now, the choice has been severely limited, basically leaving us with the option of buying a PS3 or not buying a PS3. There have been other Blu-Ray players available but they just haven’t been worth the money and offered little that was particularly significant.

Pioneer BDP LX08Pioneer has announced that it will be launching four Blu-Ray players starting with the first in September. The range will start with a basic player and vary through to the advanced, or reference, standard player. From the pictures available they certainly look better than a lot of the alternatives although no pricing has been released and, as seems to be the way with Blur-Ray, there’s still something of a problem.

Pioneer BDP LX71Only the most advanced, and therefore most expensive, of the four will include BD Live support and yet virtually all new Blu-Ray discs include BD Live features. Still, it’s the kick start we’ve hopefully been waiting for. The BDP-LX71 will be the first to hit shelves in September, the BDP-51FD will arrive in October and the BDP-LX08 and BDP-LX91 (BD Live support) will arrive in time for Christmas.
