    ***edit now reduced in price to help cover postage, Parcel Force will collect this item and deliver for £23.14, so i can now offer delivery, please add this amount to final balance***
    Hello, please find for sale my treasured Pioneer, i am truly gutted to have to sell this but without the sob story i'm currently on SSP from work so everything is potentially for sale.
    In my opinion this is the finest quality blu ray player ever made (except for its bigger brother LX88 maybe) and yes i have owned an Oppo darbee previously and this enhances a lot more naturally than the Oppo darbee does, and it's 4K scaling puts UHD blu ray players to shame.
    This Player also has custom firmware that cost $120, this enables you to playback BD.iso, 3D.iso, dvd.iso, with full menu's, it also plays MKV's with full HD audio including Atmos and DTS:X all from USB stick, USB hard drive or over the network, why people spend fortunes on Intel Nuc's is beyond me because this can do all that, better, because of all this i have rarely used the internal drive.
    Oh and it has Region switching for blu ray and DVD. it is in excellent condition and is fully boxed with the remote control.

    I would prefer the buyer to collect, because of my current health it would be hard for me to get this beast to the post office.
    If the buyer would like it delivering we would have to get a price and sort terms for delivery out separately. The Boxed weight is 13kg!!!
    Any questions please ask.

    p.s. excuse my sh***y iPhone photos LOL. IMG_0439.JPG IMG_0442.JPG IMG_0443.JPG

    Price and currency: £370
    Delivery: Collection for free or Delivery at £23.14.
    Payment method: Cash on collection / Paypal.
    Location: Leigh, West of Manchester, England.
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hello the unit has 2 HDMI outputs you can either Output Video and HD audio to the Denon, then Pass the video from the Denon into your TV, please note if you are scaling to 4K (which i recommend) then all your cables and equipment would need to be HDMI 2.0 18gbs capable.
    OR!!! you can set it to output Video to your TV, scaled to 4K obviously and the HD audio through the other HDMI output to your Denon, this is primarily for people with AVR's that don't support HDMI 2.0, but it is also meant to keep the video path purer for optimal picture quality, this is how i have it wired.
    p.s. i have just sold my Nvidia Shield, in terms of picture quality it blows the shield away you would always have a decent 4K TV scale over the Shield, but not with this, the scaler is awesome, also the shield can't play full 1080p MVC 3D, this can.
    Thanks for your interest.

    Does all that mate plays H264 and Flac fine, i have a VT50 in the bedroom and that TV looks awesome with this player.
    p.s. If you are waiting for 'flac' to show up on the front of your Denon when being bitstreamed, it doesn't, it just says Multi-In.

    I think you will find that bitstreamed flac identify's itself as PCM, here is what i found with a little google:-

    In response to Steven's added-on observation: "pcm_s16le" is ffmpeg's way of saying the audio format is LPCM, with each sample represented as a signed 16-bit integer, with each sample's bytes in little-endian order. With 44100 samples per second, times 2 channels (stereo), it works out to 1411 kilobits/second, which is just an indicator of how fat the audio data in the WAV is; it has no correlation to quality. In the FLAC, the audio data is described differently and the bitrate varies. But when the FLAC is played, it is decompressed to exactly the same LPCM audio data stream as in the WAV. – Mike Brown May 27 '13 at 18:48

    Anyway, still for sale....

    I don't know what you mean by NTFS not being supported? It obviously has to support NTFS or you would be limited to files which are 4gb in size, most £D blu ray images are 50gb in size and have to be written to the Hard Drive in NTFS.
    Ive connected a 2TB USB3 drive and played 50gb blu ray iso and 50gb 3d iso files a lot and full blu ray rips with atmos audio in mkv format.
    It is very hard when you rip a blu ray to mkv, even with no compression to end up with a file over 40gb, most are only about 23gb.
    If you know of a blu ray that is that size when ripped to mkv, let me know, i will rip it and test it.

    Yes, with the current installed firmware it will playback full blu ray iso, 3D blu ray iso and DVD iso all with full menus from a Nas over SMB (windows network protocol) or any dlna enabled share if your network can handle it.
    If you wanted to playback via NFS (unix) I would have to flash the NFS specific firmware which isn't a problem it just means you trade USB hard drive access.

    Thanks for the reply , but didn't get a notification , i think you need to quote my comment . Thanks for the reply though . I usually accessed my Mede8er through Nfs , Is SMB a better option?

    No NFS is better there is less overhead, it is just that i always played my full blu ray rips back from USB hard drive, but the author says there is no room in the firmware for Samba (smb/cifs) dlna,usb and NFS, aparently NFS image mounting needs the same address as USB drive mounting (well that is what the japanese translation came out as) so he does 2 firmwares...
    1 - smb(cifs) - dlna - USB
    or..
    2. smb(cifs) - dlna - NFS

    Thanks for your query, off for my tea

    The Zappatti can play 4k files, this can't, it is a top top drawer blu ray player that has 5 stars in every serious review you can find, it has been modified at great cost to play disk images and rips from hard drive and network, as well as be region free and cinavia free for blu ray and dvd disks.
    I might be prepared to meet you half way at £335, but i want you to be sure of it's qualitys and maybe see it in action first if you want it.
    I really can't go to £300

    Hello, i have spent the morning loading some blu ray image files onto my Nas, i have set the unit up for NFS, Some lower bit rate image files load and play fine The BFG, War Dogs etc all with pop up menu's, Very High bit rate image files for example with DTS:X such as Jason Bourne can exhibit pauses every so often as do 3D blu ray images, i'm pretty sure it isn't my network.
    The same full images all playback fine from a portable USB2 drive.
    The unit only has a 10/100mbit port, i guess some image files are at the upper level of what the network port can take, i think this is why i always played full image files via USB, full MKV rips (not encodes) of Movies with DTS:X play fine over network, maybe because they don't have all the extra auido tracks and and angle pointers.
    Network seems fine for MKV files, full image / iso files need to be played back via USB or the internal drive.

    Right mate sorry for getting back to you so late, i have been doing some testing, basically i moved the Nas downstairs and plugged it into the same switch to see if there was any improvement, there wasn't, but what i have discovered is that the front USB DOES work with the NFS firmware, it is just the rear usb that doesn't, so...

    NFS or dlna for H.264 MKV or other supported media files.
    Front USB for full blu-ray/ 3D blu-ray with menu's etc. (p.s. something else i found out they don't even have to be in iso or img, it will play them back from bdmv folder).
