This is a great price on one of the best Blu-ray players out there. This is a "Universal-Disc" player, so it plays DVD-Audio & SACD in addition to the obvious ones. No brainer...EEK!

This is for brand-new, non-refurbished. Price is only good in store. The web site link below will list the full price. Rest assured it is $199.98 in-store.

Do I need a 3d receiver to watch 3d blu ray?
If your TV can handle it, no. And this would be the perfect receiver to do it. Run one HDMI out to your receiver for audio and the video to your TV that can handle 3D.

My thought is that if you don't care about having limited web features, won't be playing a ton of DVD's or care about up-scaling, and don't care about dual HDMI out, the 52 will be just fine. The 52 drive eject is a bit noisier. Remotes are identical even though the remote model numbers are different. Chassis is identical. The firmwares are different and the software interface is a bit different because of the QDEO vs Mediatek chipset.

not sure what you mean by limited web features


does the 62 have the myriad of apps etc like a new Samsung player?

The 52 has the apps suite of a low end Insignia player...and about the same type of basic interface as well

if you think thats it

you need to look a Samsung ( or Sony) player from the last 2 years

if you are saying that is all the 62 has...then its weak like the 52 in that area

No, and that what makes the 62 so appealing because it has dual HDMI outputs. One goes directly to your 3D capable TV (video), the other goes to your non-3D capable AVR (for audio). Beware, there are some reports of lip-sync issues when configured this way. It's probably a buy and try scenario but BB returns are easy.
If I only use one HDMI, can I pass video & audio to non-3d AVR then to TV? I think the AVR don't do anything with video signal, it just pass it to TV. Is that correct?

The AVR would need to support 3D pass-through in order for your TV to see the 3D portion. If not, you would need to use another HDMI to pass 3D video specifically to your TV.

If you don't care about 3D though, everything will work just fine in 2D.

The Pioneer BDP-62 on sale @ BB is not the regional-free version, it plays BD disc code A and DVD disc code 1 . You probably mention the one that amazon sold on their website . Those players have been modified to play disc of all regions .
I echo this. I went into the menu, changed the country code to UK; and, tried to play a U.K. DVD from
gave region error, ( it was a region 2 DVD). When left on UK country code, it plays a
U.S. region DVD normally as if U.S. had been chosen. Meaning to me, hardcoded to U.S, no matter what. The manual which accompanied the Best Buy purchase states, it plays region
"all" and region 1; go to page where country codes are explained; which seems to say change country code and a different region code will be changed - NOPE - and reference back. Very confusing.

At a $200 price point, there is no other transport I know of that plays DVDA, SACD and BluRay Pure Audio.

I think the earlier 52 plays all that

I paid $99.86 for it( new in box)...actually I bought 3 and sold one on Ebay


for apps though...these are "crippled" units

Bring in the Sony and Samsung units

Your right. Looked at the left back side - Display BD "A"; DVD is "1". Many sellers of this are advertising "otherwise". If I had known about this - I would not have bought; think I will do a quick write-up and send to Pioneer. P.S., on the box it also display BD "A"; and the display for DVD as "1".

That's the way us audio guys feel about the sammys and sonys......crippled

Although the sony could be a great universal player if it had dvd audio.

I would think a player that does everything well would be desirable

based on the number of DVD audio and SACD's available...not sure that would be a driving force for me and I am running separates

I have two 52's( and assorted Samsung Sony, Panasonic as well),,,but if anything I would probably spring and get the Oppo as the analog audio and better upscaling would be more important to me

as for the group that I consider "us audio guys"...not sure I have heard this player mentioned

I have heard the Oppo mentioned on many occasions

based on the implementation, functionality( and limited amount)....what you say makes sense
