So far I'm quite happy with it; paired with the SC-LX83. It sometimes is a bit slow when loading the DLNA server list, and it can't pause when streaming. For BD and DVD is is a great player.
Is this one better at playing Bluray's than the panasonic BDT320? The review says it produces better pictures than other players in this priceclass...
Mattmeer - The Pioneer review was written before the new Panasonics landed. Sounds like a Group Test is required!
Now there's an idea
My new LX55 will not play any SACDs at all.
Lip sync issues with any blu ray films a have tried so far.
Going back for a refund. Stay away from this player.
I am having major problems with my new LX55. First one I got kept locking up, and the screen kept changing format (16:9 then Wide), and it had to be disconnected from the mains to reset. I upgraded the firmware and all was fine for a couple of days, then it locked up again. I took it back to the supplier yesterday and they swapped it over for a new one, and this is exactly the same.
This is a great player, when it works, so why can't Pioneer sort it out please?
I was going to replace my LX52 for the LX55 but after reading these comments I think I'll hang on until the bugs have been eradicated!
This player has lots of bugs and it's very disappointing that WhatHiFi appears not to have spotted any? I have loaded the latest 3.1.1 F/W and my major gripe still remains, the N/W streaming DNLA server is only scanned when the power is disconnected not on power on/off. So if I add a file to my server I get a read error which can only be corrected by unplugging the unit and powering on which forces a N/W scan. The fact that this has not been corrected makes me think the update was more about adding DRM rather than fixing problems - Maybe WhatHiFi would like to comment?
I got one of these so full of bugs, I need rent-o-kill. Pioneer not tested fully before release.
yessssss.......i was sceptical about this after the sharp involved bdp lx53/54.Now try get a good price for my soon to be ex bdplx52,which i will,you cant beat a well regarded pio amp or bd player to hold a price.Present economics taken into account!Also i knew Pioneer would be 1 of the early twin HDMI out adopters,odd 1 though with all the 3d capable AVRs they have available now,They cant be that far behind onkyo in regards to AVR popularity.They sure have they sound division as capable or better & more versatile with music.They look beautiful also.This is not a go at onkyo as their AVR history is probably as good as man u's 19 league titles!!But i think Pioneer need to put more spark into the advertising of the LX model recivers.Im veering of track now,so il stop now!

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
