Pioneer DV-LX50 review


Sublime upscaling and hi-def audio from a DVD legend

Exceptional picture ; Strong sound and build quality ; Plenty of features ; Easy to use

No USB port ; HD deck can be bought for less

Yes it won't play high-defintion discs, but when it does everything else to such a high standard, who says you'll miss Blu-ray that much?

Pioneer DV-LX50 DVD Player


DVD players may be old hat now, but that's no excuse to make them cheap and cheerful. Pioneer proves the point.

If you're a discerning DVD fan for whom money is no object, then the DV-LX50 is a superb choice, offering some of the finest DVD upscaling we've seen at this price point. Yes you can buy a high-definition disc player for less, but we've yet to see an...

Pioneer DV-LX50


Picture stability and image quality better than any other player at this price ; Cinema sound dynamics

CD quality not quite as good as a compatibly priced stand alone CD player but fair to say, most surround sound speaker systems are not a match for performance stereo speakers

Pioneer DV-LX50


Plays DVD Audio and SACD better than ony other hybrid DVD player I have previously had and the image quality is superb getting ever closer to Blu-Ray from normal DVD

Had to adjust the picture through the HDMI cable as it was too dark - used THX calibrator to do this and now works fine

Pioneer DV-LX50


A good machine if you are using it on a 42" LCD or Plasma or smaller set. Plays nearly every disc going

The DVLX50 was reviewed as being the best player Pioneer have ever produced. The machine admittedly squeezes a lot from a standard dvd, however the picture when played through my Infocus IN82 onto a screen 7 feet across is so full of pixels that you...
