I'm in the market for a new Blu-ray player my budget is around £500, having read all the reviews i can't decide between the Pioneer BDP-LX52 or Sony BDP-S760 i understand there are pro's and con's for both but a little nudge in the decision making process would be appreciated guys.

Best thing I would say is to demo both on the same screen at an independent dealer so no bias from the sales bod. Even better if you have a freindly local specialist who can loan them to you overnight.

I don't think either will disappoint. Other than that I can't help but lean toward the pioneer.

Think I read somewhere on here, Clare (Editor), suggest that the pioneer 'pips' the sony, but only just marginally.

But saying that, the Sony can be had for £300, and the Pioneer is still £500........

Is £200 extra worth it?

gel, please do not drag your near-obsessive vendetta against 2009 Pioneer models into EVERY discussion on Blu-ray - it really doesn't help anybody.

Back to the OP- yes, a demo would settle which is best for you. Having spent a lot of time with both players, the Sony is undoubtedly better value and an astonishing performer for £400, let alone the £300 you can buy it for these days. It's also faster to use and has some neater features (eg the wi-fi support) than the Pioneer.

However, if you've a Full HD Pioneer Kuro plasma, or use a recent Pioneer receiver, i'd lean towards the LX52. It's a very slightly richer-looking/sounding proposition than the Sony, and suits its sibling products perfectly.

Andrew Everard:How do you work that one out?
Yep, that wins "most bewildering post of the day"

Hi Clare,

I'm in the same situation as the OP on which player to choose from, difference being I only have a 'HD ready' Kuro screen.

Would you still recommend the Pioneer over the Sony in this case?

Cheers

... I, as well as many others, would dearly like to know where you can get the Sony for £300, I'll be in there like a shot...
