Arcam BDP-100 had numerous bugs. Haven't found any reviews for the 300. Personally, I don't think it's worth it. It's a 2-year old player, and an upgrade to a new model looks imminent.

Gel, the 08 and 71 pioneers

Gel, the 08 and 71 pioneers were the same player inside. So no difference apart from the looks. Remember your tv has been calibrated, therefore no need to up grade because you should have all the picture processing switched off. If you want 3d, then that's the only improvement. Not sure about playing music though...

cheers

bit of a thread revivial ... but picked the bdp300 up myself 3 weeks ago . mainly for hi-fi purpsoses a my ps4 wont do cd's ......grr . Anyway .... so glad i did , its a brilliant sounding player .  Got it hooked up to an arcam irdac with graham slee srg11 head amp and senn hd700 .
