Pioneer BDP-LX70A review


The Pioneer LX70A lacks the hardware to be upgraded to Blu-ray Profile 1.1, but its LAN connection does at least allow it to go online and download new firmware. This is a significant boon. While taken for granted with HD DVD, it's still rare on...

Extensive audio comatibility ; LAN connector

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

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


The first flurry of HD players having left a seriously mixed impression, the pressure is on the next batch to really make an impact. And of all the players making their debuts, few have raised higher expectations for us than Pioneer's offering.

The best-erforming Blu-ray layer yet ; 1080 ; 24 outut

Not chea ; No HDMI 1.3 ; Not BD Profile 1.1 comatible

Pioneer BDP-LX70


Pioneer's first entry into the Australian Blu-ray market is an interesting one. With a mid-level price point and media streaming functionality, it see...

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

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.

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 review


In a perfect world where we could judge the Pioneer BDP-LX70 purely on its performance standards, we'd be raving about it. But the HD disc situation right now is anything but perfect and once you put it in its proper market context, the LX70 becomes...

Stunning picture quality ; Exceptional build quality ; 1080p/24 support ; PC network compatible

Not compatible with Blu-ray Profile 1.1 ; No HDMI 1.3 input ; Expensive ; Slow to load discs

Conclusion On the one hand, the LX70 deserves to have praise showered upon it for showing just what exceptional picture quality Blu-ray is capable of producing. But on the other, it's practically impossible to recommend that anyone but the filthy rich...

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.

Add a special touch of Christmas cheer for your close friend with this S$2,444 Pioneer Blu-ray player, the first in the market with inbuilt media-streaming function.

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...

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.
