Pioneer Elite BDP-09FD Blu-ray Player First Look
Pioneer displayed their new Elite BDP-09FD flagship Blu-ray player at CEDIA 2009 claiming it has become the world's first Blu-ray Disc Player to achieve THX certification. But, the lack of DVD-A and SACD support is a bit unsettling considering that Pioneer is positioning this player as their reference to appeal to audiophiles and videophiles alike. Despite its shortcomings, the BDP-09FD is quite a sturdy built player weighing in at 30lbs. It has the look and feel of a high end product you'd expect from Pioneer Elite. The MSRP is $2,200.
