Pioneer LX01BD
Pioneer's new LX01BD Blu-ray home cinema in a box system offers 1080p video and high-definition audio for £2000

Pioneer has just launched its £2000 LX01BD Blu-ray system, designed to complement its new Kuro LCD and plasma flatscreen TVs.

The LX01BD incorporates a Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player with an integrated 5.1 channel amplifier and compact, dodecahedron satellite speakers.

There are two combined front/centre speakers and two rear speakers, plus a subwoofer.

The unit can decode DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD high-definition audio, upscale video to 1080p, and Pioneer's multichannel acoustic calibration system analyses the sound characteristics of the listening room and calibrates the system accordingly.

Connectivity includes two-in, one-out HDMI sockets, and there's support for Deep Colour via HDMI too.

More after the break

A touch-screen LCD is included as part of the package, and the unit is finished in gloss piano black with an aluminium top-plate. Kuro Link enables the user to operate the entire system using the remote control of a Kuro flatscreen TV.
