Pioneer Updates Blu-ray Range

Pioneer has been churning out some cracking Blu-ray players recently - see the BDP-51FD and BDP-LX71 for more details - so we should expect good things from the latest three: the BDP-LX52, BDP-320 and BDP-120.

BDP-120

All three are Profile 2.0 compliant, offer 1080p playback (including 24Hz video) and support Deep colour - 48bit on the BDP-LX52 and BDP-320 and 36bit on the BDP-120. All three players will decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio for direct audio playback, and also output uncompressed Linear PCM to a dedicated receiver.

The BDP-LX52 and BDP-320 also one-up the BDP-120 by offering Pioneer's Kuro Link system, which coupled with a Pioneer TV will automatically calibrate the players' output to suit the display. The two higher-end models also offer Pioneer's Precision Quartz Lock System which, paired with a similarly outfitted receiver, purports to reduce audio jitter. The BDP-120 has once ace up its sleeve, however: a start-up time (from standby) of only 0.8 seconds.

BDP-LX35

The top two players can have their firmware updated either via CD or direct from the 'net, while the bottom model can do so only from CD or a USB device. It goes almost without saying that all three players look rather stylish. The BDP-320 should be available this month, with the other two models following in July. No pricing as yet.
