Pioneer X-SMC5-K


Exhaustive spec, AirPlay, Bluetooth and DLNA wireless streaming, intuitive to use

Sound is so-so, likewise DVD pictures

As complete a jack-of-all-trades as we’ve seen for some time only let down by fair-to-middling performance

Expert review by:

Pioneer Slim AV Micro System X-SMC5-K


Pioneer has pulled their weight by offering a series of Slim Micro Systems that intertwine a myriad of connectivity options contributing to the charm of your flat screen TV with its sublime aesthetics.

One unified, complete entertainment solution; Good looks; Connected device

Remote control isn’t the best; Expensive
