Pioneer DCS-323 review

A surround sound setup with a slim sub at the centre

Our Verdict

A good-looking setup that offers solid pictures and flexible surround sound options at a very reasonable 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. Setting up is easy, and there's a set of adjustments that alter speaker level to suit the size of your room.

The DCS-323 builds on the success of its predecessors. There's no component, but images have excellent detail via RGB Scart and the speakers are spectacular no matter what their layout.
