looking for worthy successor to Pioneer BDP-51FD
I would like to upgrade my Pioneer 51FD Blu-Ray player to a faster loading version with BD-Live. I'm very happy with the picture and sound quality of the blu rays but hope to achieve the following enhancements:
1. faster loading of BluRay discs
2. internet connection for BD-Live
3. better upscaling of DVD subtitles (picture upscaling is good but subtitles are very coarse
4. not looking for any 3D functionalities for the next few years .
I don't use the player for Audio CDs very often as most of my music is played vrom my iTunes library via AppleTV.
Youtube and other online features are not a requirement as I can use AppleTV and Airplay to achieve this.
Thanks to PQLS and lipsynch problems are no issue anymore with the VSX920 AVR.
As I have a full Pioneer installation so far (just upgrading the speakers to S71K and S81B-lr-k) my obvious choice would be to go for another Pioneer player. I can buy an LX53 for half price €250 but read it's quality is not much better than the 51FD so spending this amount of money to just get BD-Live and a faster loader withouth much more functionality/quality seems like not a good opportunity to me.
