    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 VSX-LX60 review

    8  

    Pioneer's high-contrast Kuro Plasma TVs, have been grabbing all the technology headlines of late, but while the PDP division has been discovering new shades of black, the less-celebrated audio team has developed a thumping new line-up of AV receivers

    Pioneer VSX-AX2AS review

    8  

    Take Pioneer's VSX-AX4ASi, strip off a few inputs, lose the second zone remote and shave £150 off the price - and what have you got? Yup, the new VSX-AX2AS. Blink and you'll miss the differences, both inside and out

    Pioneer VSX-1016V review

    10  

    The Pioneer VSX-1016V looks identical to its more costly sibling the VSX-2016AV, and at first glance the specification looks similar too. It's a step down model, but THX Select2 and THX Surround EX certification are emblazoned on the front panel

    Pioneer A-A9 review

    8  

    It has been a while since Pioneer last made serious two-channel audio components, and it's perhaps a reflection of how crowded things have got in the AV market that it has decided to have another stab at it now

    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.

    Pioneer PD-D9 review

    Pioneer PD-D9 review

    8  

    Pioneer used to be a major player in the budget and mid-market with some scorching amplifiers, like the A400, and some equally impressive disc spinners with distinctive stable platter transports.

    Pioneer PD-D6 review

    8  

    Pioneer is firmly back in the dedicated-audio-separates world, with this SACD player (one of the cheapest around) and a couple of amps in the 'G clef' range, all chock-full of audiophile credibility and tweaked at AIR Studios in north London

    Pioneer DSC-363 review

    10  

    Compact all-in-one systems obviously have their place. After all, the biggest hurdle to most households pursuing their home cinema dreams is the amount of space taken up by dedicated full-sized speaker systems.

    Pioneer VSX-2016AV review

    10  

    With its impressive specs, the Pioneer VSX-2016AV easily justifies its price. It has HDMI in/outs along with useful touches like a custom iPod input with connection lead, a front panel USB input and a second zone for extra rear channels

    Pioneer DCS-360 review

    8  

    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.

    Pioneer DCS-340 review

    9  

    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

    8  

    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.
