Pioneer's $2200 BDP-09FD Blu-ray Player Is A PS3 Killer
Pioneer has introduced a Blu-ray player to kill all Blu-ray players, and according to Gizmodo this one actually outdoes the PS3. Of course, you'll pay $2200 for the superb playback from the BDP-09FD. Fully BD-Live capable and updated and ethernet-connected, the BDP-09FD eliminates the need for an SD card with its 4GB of internal memory.
It actually decodes all known codecs from DTS and Dolby, using a separate digital-to-analog converter for each audio channel and combined with some fancy internal engineering results in a "perfect noise-free signal" using gold-plated RCA jacks. Of course, noise reduction is also helped by the BDP-09FD's steel-reinforced 50 pound body which all but eliminates vibration from pumping sound through 7 channels.
Notable video specs include 16-bit processing and 24p cinema playback plus this high-end Blu-ray player features not one, but two HDMI slots. If you're looking for something a little more mainstream then stick with the PS3, but hardcore home theater junkies will find the most amazing Blu-ray playback around in the form of the $2200 Pioneer BDP-09FD.
