Pioneer LX01 review

 

A stunning high-end system with Dolby True HD decoding

Sensational performance and features

Expensive ; No DVD-A or SACD

It may be expensive, but it looks amazing and delivers a knock-out performance

Pioneer LX01 Home Cinema System

 

Pioneer's LX01 will bring style and performance to your home cinema - if you're prepared to splash out for it.

We've got nothing but praise for the LX01 system, which delivers a dizzying array of features and sensational performance - all wrapped up in a stylishly low-key design that makes it the perfect match for Pioneer's Kuro plasmas. We would have been even...

Pioneer LX01 review

 

Pioneer's LX01 produces 'omni-surround sound' from just four speakers. It's also quite possibly the best home cinema system in the world…

The best home cinema-in-a-box system we’ve seen, the LX01 is expensive but hugely desirable

Pioneer LX01 review

 

By some way the best home cinema-in-a-box system in the world

Exceptional performance and flexibility ; brilliant usability ; appealing design

High price puts it into competition with separates kit

Expensive, but hugely desirable – a remarkable achievement

Pioneer LX01

 

The Pioneer LX01 is a high-end home cinema system that comes integrated with DVD and HDD recording capabilities. The system is composed of four compact yet stylish speakers, a Freeview tuner, DVD and HDD recorder, a radio tuner and a surround receiver....

Forgive the LX01 its standard definition trespasses, and this is one (as Burt Ward might have said at his peak) holy terror of a sound system, Batman. Match it up with a Kuro plasma and you’ll have the perfect AV experience – for this year, at least....

Pioneer LX01

 

Well built, looks great and even better sounds good. The range of features are the best, allowing a true one box solution at high quality. DVD upscaling to 1080p is good too. Pity all the features in the LX01 are not in the BD version.

Manual is poorly written and in 2 parts, which makes setting up and operation difficult. I still have not mastered the recording functions. Only other thing is Pioneer should include all the features in the BD version.

All around system with many features. Great sound and vision.

It has a long learning curve, a little bit complicated at first, because it is packed with so many features.
