    Pioneer LX01 review

    10  

    If you own one of Pioneer’s gorgeous Kuro plasma TVs and need a home cinema system to match, this is just the ticket. It comprises a DVD/HDD recorder, a 400W subwoofer receiver, four compact satellite speakers and a display unit that accepts commands from the remote control, enabling you to hide the other components out of sight.

    Pioneer RCS-9H review

    10  

    The Pioneer RCS-9H offers recording and versatile speaker placement in addition to its typical one-box system capabilities. What's more, it combines the best of both recording worlds by featuring DVD-R/RW and 80GB hard-disk recording.

    Combining the XV-DV353 player/ amplifier, S-DV360T 'tallboy' speakers and S-DV360SW subwoofer, this smart-looking Pioneer system is also available as the DCS-353 package with smaller satellite speakers.

    If a manufacturer wants to enjoy brisk sales of a new home cinema all-in-one package in today's tough sales climate, it either has to do something dramatic in terms of features or design, or else it needs to aim squarely at punters' pockets.

    Pioneer DCS-333 review

    Anchored around the rather substantial main unit, this system is powerful (100W per channel) and has some versatility, although there are a few key features missing - somewhat justified by the price

    The DCS-323 boasts Pioneer's 3-Spot technology, and so offers both 5.1 and 'pseudo' surround sound - depending on how you place the speakers.The stylish speaker system includes one of the slimmest subwoofers we've seen.
