This is a serious AV player for the money. At its original MSRP of $2,200, it will definitely raise your eyebrows when there are cheaper Bluray players that will offer just as much features for less money. But if you look further than what’s on the spec sheets, you will see why the Pioneer commands the premium over the other machines. Both audio and video playback is first class. In two channel audio, the Pioneer will easily and comfortably challenge any CD based player costing up to $3,000. Music was cleanly reproduced with great emphasis on details and soundstage. Put in a Bluray disc and the HD picture quality is only limited by the quality of the LCD screen. Add to all these is a first class build quality that speakers volume on it as the masterpiece in a top notch AV system. Like all serious Japanese models, they are Made In Japan and never elsewhere. Buy it for music, buy it for movies or buy it for both and you are likely to be tickled happy with the unit.
Cosmetically, the unit is in great shape. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. Remote control is included but no original box. We will securely pack this hefty unit for safe shipping. Manual is available online.
