RE: PIONEER BDP-450 BLU-RAY

My BDP-320 is starting to play up, as in freezing on perfectly clean and unmarked discs. I have the latest firmware on it, but it's so overly sensitive that I think it will have to go.

Question is, is the BDP-450 a decent upgrade on it, and more importantly, will the 450 give me playback problems like the ones I've outlined above?

 Technosound (home cinema shop) in Willen stock the 450, could be worth a journey over there, you will be able to have a good demo on a 55 inch Panasonic TV and they are good with telling you how it performs.

No probs, you can hear my speakers at the same time, they are running them with the flagship Pioneer amp. Smile  They have a Bang Olufsen shop next to it too.

Technosound are selling them on Amazon for £230.  They currently have four in stock.  They do the new Panasonic Blu-ray players too.

Was tempted by the Currys deal, but don't want to go to Technosound just to try it out, then buy elsewhere, wouldn't be fair.

But I will pop in there sometime to see what they have though.

Smile  They have projectors on demo in there too and the new B&W M1 speaker package.  They do good home installation deals at very reasonable prices.  They set mine up for £50!

Make sure the "auto lip sync" feature in your AV receiver (Yamaha 3010) is on.

Oops, sorry hadn't noticed the date, thank you.

Still I've been considering one of these since the WHF review and feel that at £199 it appears to be bargain

Cheers
