Just wanted to throw this one out there as my old LX52 is starting to become unreliable and I need to change it. I do like the LX52 and the styling suits my KRP600 and they are still about and i can get a new one for £200. However if the newer Pioneer players are better then I'll get one of those. So can anyone advise if the 55 or 450 give a better picture/sound quality than the 52? I know that the LX52 was the last one before Sharp took over for a while, but I believe the 55 and 450 are 100% Pioneer again. I have no means of demo'ing the units so any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Mike.
