Question Panasonic BDT-310, Pioneer BDP-52/53 or Oppo BDP-93?

In need of some help deciding between the Panasonic DMP-BDT310, Pioneer BDP-52/53 or Oppo BDP-93?

I currently own the Panasonic BDT310 and recently purchased the Pioneer VSX-1121 receiver. Found out that this receiver does not have 7.1 analog output in order for me to play SACD & DVD-Audio with my Pioneer DV-47A DVD player.

I want to know if I should just keep the Panasonic and just listen to my SACD & DVD-A in Dolby Digital or sell it and get either one of the Pioneer's or Oppo?

Judging from reviews I've read Pioneer BDP-52 had some earlier problems, but I think that they have been corrected. Not sure if it will better to go with the BDP-53 instead.
The main reason I consider the Pioneers is that they have PQLS.

I do watch both 2D & 3D blu-rays, so that is important.
I have PS3, so Netflix won't be a problem...can also watch it via Panasonic GT30 VieraCast too.

Pioneer BDP-52 will cost $400.
Both Pioneer BDP-53 & Oppo BDP-93 will be $500.
Plan to sell my Panasonic for $150. The Pioneer DV-47A for $100.

Budget is tight, but enough to stretch for either one...selling both will help.

Really need some good advice on what I should do.

Thanks!

Anyone interested in buying the Pioneer DV-47A and/or Panasonic DMP-BDT310?

Thanks everyone!

I had decided to buy thePanasonic DMP-BDT320 but then noticed BDT310 was on sale $180 Best buy. However it brought to my attention the regular price of the 310 is normally $50 more than the BDT320. Anyone no the reason? Is the 310 considered higher end than the 320? All feedback welcome.

You are correct; in fact, I just got back from BB with my refund due to the price drop. I personally like the 310 because it feels more solid to me and has an additional HDMI. I posted this in an earlier thread and there was some good feedback. I'll try to find it and post it here for you.

Thanks Rich, I think I'll go with the 310, I don't need the second HDMI but $20 is $20 and after everything else I'll save where I can.

I had an LGBD690 and after 2 weeks it started getting very noisy. Took it back to best buy and picked up the new Panasonic BDT-220, after I had it I realized it wasn't a dual band wifi player like Panny said it was over the phone. Brought that back and got the 310 and couldn't be happier. It's fast loading and very quiet....also picks up the 5GHz band on wifi.....I heard Panasonic did away with that for 2012....bummer.

Hi Remo,

Sorry I haven't responded to your post sooner, but I've decided to keep the BDT310.
Since I'm a Prime Amazon member, I stream Unlimited Amazon Instant videos with it...once in a while, I'll through in a blu-ray.

Anyone interested, the Pioneer DV-47A is still for sale!

and almost a year later....

My Panasonic BDT-310 is for sale.
It has been barely used, except for some Amazon Prime Video viewing, which has been discontinued since March 2013 (no longer Prime member).
Player has been sitting in audio/video rack without any use...Oppo is my main blu-ray player.

Looking for $150 plus shipping.
