  1. Hi my name is Brian, I just joined and after reading the review on the pioneer bdp88fd, I'd like to add that it is an outstanding all around player. I play my DVD audios on it and the sound is so clean and detailed that I literally catch myself listening for far greater a time than I set out to do. I also use it for movies and sacd as well, with the same results. I recommend this player without reserve.
