Pioneer BDP-LX 52

 

The Pioneer BDP-LX 52 is a Blu-ray player released in autumn 2009, and currently sells for around 500 GBP online.

Superb HD-film picture ; Above-average DVD playback ; Loads of picture controls ; Versatile HD-audio output ; Effective jitter reduction in combination with Pioneer receivers

Audible fan noise ; Loading times are way too long

There’s no question about it: Pioneer devices almost unfailingly produce top-quality pictures. On top of that, the BDP-LX 52 also sounds fantastic: Pioneer’s PQLS technology improves differentiation in HD-audio formats — although only if you use the...

High-def decadence from the enthusiast's favourite

Picture and sound quality, build quality

The BDP-LX52 doesn't play media files from USB but it will play just about everything else

Looks; Picture quality; Built-in memory

Won't play media via USB; Slow disc loading

So, grumbles aside about the lack of Wi-Fi and slow loading times; we think the LX52 is an exceptionally talented Blu-ray deck

Pioneer BDP-LX52 review

 

The Pioneer BDP-LX52 is pricy and suffers from some flaws, like its lack of multi-channel analogue outputs, and slow disc-loading times. But its video and audio quality are so good that these negative issues are easily outweighed

Exceptional picture and sound quality ; Full BD-Live support

No multi-channel analogue outputs ; Slow load times

Conclusion The Pioneer BDP-LX52 is far from perfect. It lacks multi-channel analogue outputs, can't play back media via its USB port and can be slow to load discs. But it still impressed us greatly, due to its excellent video-playback quality. Simply...

Does Pioneer know how to make a bad Blu-ray player? Danny doesn't think so.

The BDP-LX52's relatively high price tag will no doubt limit its appeal to dedicated home cinema fans, but if you have the cash and care about AV performance then we guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Review: Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-Ray Player

 

Tell any tech reviewer that you're on the look-out for an excellent Blu-ray player with stunning picture quality, great sound and brilliant upscaling qualities, then the chances are he or she will tell you to check out a Pioneer – and possibly the...

If you can afford the £500-odd to buy a Pioneer BDP-LX52, then do. Whilst the loading times are long, there’s nothing wrong in a bit of waiting in anticipation, as quite soon you’ll realise what’s coming next – you’ll be blown away by the quality and...

Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-ray Player

 

Pioneer's experience with optical disc in home entertainment applications goes back many years. The company carved out a very respectable niche for itself in the 1980s and 90s by standing firmly behind the LaserDisc format, rather than following the...

Your HDTV or projector is much like an athlete. Feed it rubbish and it won't perform to its optimum level, but stick it on a diet of top-quality Blu-ray pictures and you'll get stunning results. Sounds like a job for the Pioneer BDP-LX52. Read our full...

Eye-popping picture quality

Expensive and lacks Wi-Fi

The perfect player for those serious about home cinema

Pioneer BDP-LX52

 

It definetly has high picture quality having viewed blu-ray discs on a 40" LED monitor and with good sound quality too having heard it through an AV amplifier with quality speakers. I viewed BBC's Planet Earth as a first disc to test and 'wow' was my...
