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

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

Great value and great sound


I wanted to have a simple to use cd-Ipod-radio all in one with great sound. This exactly fits the brief. I paid $197 at JB HIFI and this is a great deal. The sound is fantastic and you can adjust treble and bass, unlike my Bose ipod dock. I also wanted...

You have control on your music by just loading a CD or selecting something from an ipod without pushing all sorts of buttons etc. Great sound, remote control is fully functional. Love it to bits

The children have discovered it, and now have found my CD collection. It's great especially at $197
