Comments about Pioneer Elite 3D Compatible Streaming Blu-ray Disc Player:

Great Quality picture and will play Blu Ray, DVD, CD, SACD, DVD-Audio disks which is the main reason I wanted it. I have a Pioneer SC-57 Receiver and I wanted to use the PQLS feature which does improve the sound quality fo PCM data (CD's) passed to a capable Pioneer Receiver. The build quaility is excellent. On the other hand this is severely lacking in user convenience features and has primitive menus. For Example, when you turn it on you just get the PIONEER logo on the screen and it sits there until you press a menu button on the remote. The remote is poor. You need to point it directly at the player then press hard on the buttons. The front panel display is not nearly as bright as the one on my Pioneer Receiver. The tray does not close until after a delay of quite a few seconds. The front Display does not tell you what track number you are on when playing a CD. I could go on. Again, the quality of the picture and the sound quality are excellent. But if you are looking for up to the minute user interface features (Like LG players have,for example) this is not for you.
