Pioneer Elite BDP-05FD & BDP-51FD Blu-ray Disc Players

Pioneer has introduced a couple of new Blu-ray disc players in its Elite line, the BDP-05FD and BDP-51FD models. These players have the ability to decode all advanced audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS HD and DTS HD Master. Both features 1080p HDMI 1.3a technology, professional quality Wolfson 12-bit D/A converters, and DVD playback with 1080p up-conversion.

The Elite BDP-05FD comes with a 2-year warranty instead of one year for the BDP-51FD, and features gold-plated connection ports, capacitance touch key buttons and an aluminum front panel that will have audiophiles and videophiles eager to use and display within their high end home theater d├ęcor.

The Pioneer Elite BDP-05FD and BDP-51FD BonusView Blu-ray disc players will begin shipping this summer for suggested prices of $799 and $599, respectively.
