If it were me i would go for one of the Panasonics, they seem to have very good reviews & less problems than the Pioneers of late.

RS are doing the Panasonics DMPBDT210 for £149.95 & the DMPBDT310 for £199.95 + you get the 3 free Star Wars BluRay films, which if you dont want you can always sell on, therefore reducing the price of the player.

The 3D portion is just a feature, as most have improved the audio & picture quality of 2D, so in you case is just there for possible future upgrades.

Speakers - Dali Ikon 6 F L/R, Ikon Vocal 2 Centre, Ikon 1 Surround, B&W 610 Subwoofer.
TV - Calibrated Sony 46 HX853. BDP - Sony mr BDPS790, PS3, PS4.
A/V Amp - Yamaha RXV 1073

The 310 has 2 HDMI outputs useful if you want to run a projector & tv in 2 seperate rooms, a slight of hand draw opening from the top sensor & from all accounts slightly better audio quality according to the reviews. It just boils down to what you want out of the BD Player, I would suggest you have an audition of both if possible.

Another option would be to buy one of the older 2D models available like the Pioneer LX52/53 or Denon 2500BT for example, if loading times are not important to you but picture & sound quality are & you dont need things like 3D, internet apps or wireless functions.
