Armed with 3D Blu-ray disk playback, the BDP-LX54 and BDP-430 provide advanced networking features and exceptional audio/video reproduction, according to the company.

With straightforward connectivity to a local network and the internet, the two models open up new content and networking opportunities for users. In adition to an Ethernet port for regular wired integration, the two models can also be connected to a wireless home network via an optional Pioneer wireless LAN adapter.

Equipped with the latest HDMI specification (1.4a 3D), the BDP-LX54 and BDP-430 can be used in tandem with Pioneer's latest 3D capable AV receivers. Users can watch their favourite movies with great richness and detail thanks to each unit's ability to play Blu-ray Discs in 1080p full high-definition at a smooth, cinema-like 24 frames per second, and convert standard DVDs to near HD quality.

Both devices can also unlock additional movie-related content from the web with BD-Live including YouTube videos and playback of audio, video and photo content stored on a compatible network PC or media server.
Pioneer has also provided a free app that transforms a mobile device into a remote control.

When the Blu-ray Disc players are connected to an existing wireless router (via Ethernet or Wireless LAN), Pioneer's iControlAV app allows wireless control of playback and navigation functions. In addition, the iControlAV app integrates advanced and original control for many of Pioneer's recently announced AV receivers: SC-LX83, SC LX73, VSX-LX53, VSX-1020 and VSX-920.

Pioneer has also ensured that the BDP-LX54 and BDP-430 deliver the most advanced multi-channel audio with all the latest HD audio formats supported. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio are supported by both models which can also output either as native bitstream or decode internally and output as uncompressed multi-channel LPCM on HDMI, giving a compelling soundtrack.

With its solid build quality and the use of selected high-quality audio parts, the top-of-the-range BDP-LX54 ensures a powerful yet refined sonic Blu-ray experience.

Constructed according to the 'Armoured Chassis Concept', the chassis of the BDP-LX54 is strengthened with a layered chassis armour and drive stabiliser which helps to reduce vibration, contributing to impressive sonic performance.

Gold-plated terminals, ice blue illumination and a hair-line front panel finish further add to the Blu-ray Disc player's premium feel.

The BDP-LX54 and BDP-430 Blu-ray players are available now, retailing at $599 and $499 respectively.
