Pioneer BDP-LX88 review


A stellar movie performance, but its stereo performance and lack of streaming apps let it down

Crisp, detailed picture Well built Good remote app Precise movie sound performance Solid, taut bass

Minimal built-in streaming services Sound on the lean side Stereo performance could be better

If you’re largely concerned with movie performance, you’ll find little to fault here, but at this price we need more for the full five. Rival player the Oppo BDP-105D offers a better all-round performance and feature set. MORE: Best Buys: Blu-ray players

Pioneer BDP-LX88 review


Much like Thor's Uru hammer, only the home cinema worthy will be able to lift Pioneer's mighty BDP-LX88 Blu-ray player. Tipping the scales at an enormous 13.4kg, it boasts more armour than Brad Pitt's tank, and is heavier than many AV receivers.

Supreme build quality; excellent video performance; uncanny musicality; powerful signal processing options

Will be overly complex for many; token streaming services; prone to hanging when navigating networked sources; slow disc loading
