Three weeks ago my Pioneer BDP-450 Blu-ray player developed a fault where the front display panel is no longer working. The player itself is working fine but the front panel is dead. I've taken it back to Richer Sounds, who sent it off to Pioneer for repair. However RS called back a few days ago to report that Pioneer cannot repair it so RS are going to issue a credit note (as they no longer have any new BDP450's in stock, only ex-display or open-box models) for me to use it against another machine. I'm looking into using the credit note against either the Pioneer BDPLX58 or the CA Azur 752bd. Both of them tick all the required boxes etc., so its just down to which one produces the best video and audio experiences. Any opinions would be greatly welcomed. Thanks.
