The 3D boom knows no end. Pioneer Japan today announced [JP] two Blu-ray players supporting 3D content, the BDP-LX54 (pictured above) as the high-end model, and the BDP-430. Apart from Blu-ray discs, the players are also compatible to the following formats: DivX HD, MKV, WMV, MP3, WMA, and JPEG.
Both devices also feature an HDMI interface, two USB ports, Ethernet, YouTube connectivity, and iControlAV support (iControlAV is an iPhone app that can basically replace the remote control). Spec-wise, the players are identical, but the high-end BDP-LX54 has better vibration control and some high-quality parts (for example the condenser) the BDP-430 (pictured below) doesn’t have.
Pioneer plans to roll out both players in Japan next month (prices: $1,000 for the high-end model, $366 for the other one).
