A very well designed Blu-ray player, the BDP-LX70's biggest drawback is its price. If you're willing to pay the extra for its media streaming capabilities, then it's well-worth the investment.

Excellent Blu-ray playback, 1080p/24p video output, High quality surround sound performance, Easy-to-use media streaming

Slight lag when navigating the menu, Expensive compared to other units

Pioneer BDP-LX70A review

 

Pioneer's revised Blu-ray deck boasts audio potential

Extensive audio compatibility ; LAN connector

Design ; Disc-loading times ; Not a Profile 1.1 player

Even though it's not Profile 1.1, there's still a lot to like about this deck

Pioneer BDP-LX70A

 

Pioneer's BDP-LX70A is a high-end Blu-ray player, geared towards enthusiasts. As with other similarly high-end players, it attempts to distinguish its...

Great quality Blu-ray and DVD playback, media streaming

Very expensive

Ignoring price, this is probably the best Blu-ray player we've seen to date. If you're willing to pay a premium then it's an excellent product.

Pioneer BDP-LX70 review

 

A stunning performer, but not quite a flawless HD solution

The best-performing Blu-ray player yet ; 1080p/24 output

Not cheap ; No HDMI 1.3 ; Not BD Profile 1.1 compatible

While the LX70 is a spectacularly good performer, it's impossible not to feel that you're better waiting for Pioneer's second generation deck

Pioneer BDP-LX70A review

 

Prices for Blu-ray and HD-DVD players have been tumbling of late – we've recently tested new kit from Sharp, Sony and Toshiba costing less than £400, and the only way is down from there. Except Pioneer's BDP-LX70A has gone the other way – it costs a...

While other hi-def players are tumbling prices tumble, this Pioneer Blu-ray spinner weighs in at a hefty grand. Can it justify the premium?

Firmly pitched at the money-no-object home cinema enthusiast – and it delivers the goods in style. Stupendous ability in every regard

Pioneer BDP-LX70

 

The Pioneer BDP-LX70 player is a very good Blu-ray player and media streaming device, but it's not as successful with DVD playback.

Excellent Blu-ray playback ; Media streaming ; Styling

DVD replay can be bettered for the price ; Only HDMI 1.2 ; Expensive

One thing we didn't appreciate was that it didn't explain how to input photos -- for that, you'll need to make sure the pictures are first in your "My Pictures" folder and then add them via the "Add to Library" option in WMP 11.

Pioneer BDP-LX70

 

This Blu-ray player measures 420x103x353mm and weighs 6.5kg. It delivers HD images in 1080p and at 24fps, and supports bitstream output for Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Terminal-wise, it has 1x HDMI output, 1x digital audio out, 1x...

Pioneer BDP-LX70A

 

The most accomplished blu-ray player out there, at a price ..

Not so far ahead into the future, the Pioneer BDP-LX70A's capabilities will be taken for granted, and the lack of Blu-ray 1.1 profile will be unthinkable, but for now it is the most accomplished blu-ray player out there.

Pioneer BDP-LX70

 

With a price tag of £1,000, it's just as well that Pioneer's debut Blu-ray player, the BDP-LX70, has some pretty high-end tricks up its sleeve. With 1080/24p pictures foremost among them, this is quite simply the finest Blu-ray performance we've seen

Amazing 1080/24p pictures, Superb upscaling performance, Great sound

Only HDMI 1.2, not 1.3, Not BD Profile 1.1 compliant

If you've got the cash and the right plasma screen, we guarantee you'll be basking in hi-def picture heaven.
