Pioneer UDP-LX500 v Panasonic DP-UB9000

Recommended Posts

Has anyone compared the  Pioneer UDP-LX500 v Panasonic DP-UB9000

 

I priced these today & the Pioneer is $500 dearer

 

My CA 751 BD is dead & I need a replacement

i haven't seen anyone with both ? but then you'd probably get one or other ? 

 

what are you chasing in the player ? analog performance ? universal player ? just a universal transport ? 

 

cambridge has the cxuhd if just looking for a transport ? and its a true uhd/universal

 

I have the pana that I am using as a transport really and I use a 205 player as a universal. 

 

ps can't the 751 BD be resurrected ? possibly just a simple fix ? or just want to move on ?  could then continue to use as a universal and add uhd player of choice :)

The 751 BD's main board is faulty & is $721 to fix, it does what I want it to do but knowing my luck something else will break 2 weeks after I get it back.

I cant justify the spend

 

2 channel sound is a priority, as well a quality BD player

I think I sold my 751 and then 752 at $650 or there about 2nd hand years ago... so no not worth it at that sort of money ....

 

if 2ch and BD player, does that mean dont need uhd ? 

 

otherwise you'd want to explore both choice over analog id suggest. not sure many have compared both.... or which makes better 2ch player...

Uhd = ultra high def?

sorry I struggle a little with some of what I read on this forum

 

Ive read on some of the English reviews that the Pioneer is a little better for Audio so I’m leaning that way at the moment

My AV amp is a Pioneer SC-LX83 which has been good to me

I have another pre/power set up for the fronts

yes ultra high definition uhd... you'd only look at these if needing that. if dont need that then can grab a legacy player.  ie just blu-ray 

 

just keep in mind the lx83 wont pass uhd so unless planning to bypass it. if dont need uhd might be better off with a non uhd player pick up 2nd hand off the classifieds :)

Yeah ok thanks

Will a non UHD player have the musical capability of the Pioneer I spoke of above?

There’s probably a ton of non uhd players with musical capability lot cheaper than the pioneer.

 

if wanting it to be a blu-Ray player as well then limiting to Cambridge 751/752 or oppo 95/105 players
