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 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

Review: Pioneer X-SMC5 audio system

 

Latest audio reviews, ipod reviews and MP3 player reviews online

Pioneer has stepped up its game significantly with the X-SMC5. The device is like an audio Swiss Army knife with so many ways to enjoy and connect to your music.

Pioneer XSMC5K

 

Excellent sound quality.

The only bad point about this product is the fact that the video cable is way too short.

Pioneer XSMC5K

 

Easy to use. Plays anything! Great for in the kitchen, and means I can play my 1000s of CDs without having to rip them.

Bass is a bit thin, and stereo imaging not brilliant.

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
