Pioneer BDP-LX08 review


The Pioneer BDP-LX08 has unquestionable credentials, but the slimline design isn't enough to justify the price premium over Pioneer's cheaper Blu-ray

Slim design ; class-leading picture and sound performance

Price ; only Profile 1.1 ; no DTS-HD Master Audio decoding upgrade until Feb/March

Unquestionable credentials, but the ’LX08’s slimline design isn’t enough to justify the price premium over Pioneer’s cheaper Blu-ray players

Pioneer BDP-LX08 review


Pioneer's high design Blu-ray player costs £300 more than its sibling, the '51FD. Is it worth the extra outlay?

One of the best-looking and performing Blu-ray players we’ve seen, but not quite worth the extra premium

Pioneer BDP-LX08 review


Super stylish Blu-ray spinner sacrifices speed for image quality and control

Picture quality ; Design ; 7.1 outputs ; Fine-tuning

Profile 1.1 ; Slow disc loading ; Price

The sheer quality of the pictures pumped out of this Blu-ray payer make up for the slow disc loading times. However, we think the price is a bit steep for a Profile 1.1 player
