Pioneer BDP-LX 08


The Pioneer BDP-LX 08 is a Blu-ray player, released in late 2008, that currently sells online from around 500 GBP.

Outstanding HDTV and 24p movie picture ; Excellent DVD playback ; Sleek design, tidy manufacturing ; Loads of picture controls ; HD audio as a bitstream

Profile 1.1; Slow disc loading; Price

Pioneer's high design Blu-ray player costs £300 more than its sibling, the '51FD. Is it worth the extra outlay?

Slim design ; class-leading picture and sound performance

Price ; only Profile 1.1 ; no DTS-HD Master Audio decoding upgrade until Feb/March
