Pioneer BDP-LX 91


Excellent HDTV and 24p movie picture., Two HDMI outputs., Superb DVD playback., Numerous picture controls., Analog 7.1-channel output and bitstream audio

Decoder for DTS-HD required a Firmware update at time of testing., BD-Live also required Firmware update., The massive price.

Multimedia BD-Live Function: When we first got our hands on Pioneer's top model in early 2009, the BD-Live function wasn't yet operational. The LX 91 has a network interface, but interactive, online BD-applications only became possible with an April...

Pioneer BDP-LX91 review


If you've got the desire and the bank balance to put together a really serious home-cinema kit, complete with a tip-top sound system and truly massive TV or projector, Pioneer's BDP-LX91 Blu-ray player is eminently qualified to become your system's...

Very expensive ; Not the fastest Blu-ray player around

Conclusion The Pioneer BDP-LX91's price is steep, no matter how you look at it. But, to the no-compromise cognoscenti at whom the BDP-LX91 is aimed, cost is probably not an issue when it comes to getting the very best Blu-ray performance possible

European Blu-ray Player 2009-2010 -> Pioneer BDP-LX91


Beautifully finished and comprehensively equipped, Pioneer's BDP-LX91 is one of the very first BD players with sufficient on-board processing power to decode both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. It's also one of the first to offer a full 7.1...

Pioneer BDP-LX91 Blu-ray player


Pioneer's BDP-LX71 was one of the best Blu-ray players released in 2008, and much beloved of cinephiles. But it still lacked a few features. In particular, it was limited to Profile 1.1, so wasn't able to deliver the Internet-connected capabilities of...

Awesome video quality, supports all the latest Blu-ray features

Awesomely expensive

Pioneer BDP-LX91 Reference BD Player with audiophile construction.


In the eyes of long-time videophiles, Pioneer are surely one of the most respected names in optical video. After essentially rescuing the format that would become Laserdisc in the 1980s from the hands of MCA, the company kept the then-ultimate video...
