pioneer bdp lx55 or bdp450
My current dvd player is getting too eratic for me and I think it's best days are gone, it is a Pioneer dv656a.
This was bought originally for multidisc playback and I would still want these features.
My options seem to be the 2 players mentioned above as I don't use the player all that often and do not really want to spend a fortune.
I see very few players that have mutichannel outs now so I guess this will have to be done by coax or hdmi, my current av amp does not support hdmi.
From reading a few reviews on other forums the 45o seems to have some noise issues and firmware problems !
From this I saw that the older lx55 didn't have the noise issues and is still an excellent player although slightly more expensive.
I would be buying online and thinking this is probably the right one for me but just wanted to know if the issues of the 450 are being over exaggerated, is it a much better player than the lx55, are there other options I should consider?
I would not want to spend more than £300, sacd playback is required, dvd a I don't really want to lose as then I could go with a Sony.
I do not do 3d, sound quality is more important than picture quality,I am sure I will be amazed by the upgrade in picture performance from my current Pioneer.
Any help, thoughts, hugely appreciated, thanks for reading.
