Glynne, London Home cinema enthusiast

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Looks cool. Nice blue lights. Matches Pioneer amps in appearance. That's it.
Bad points:
You have to be right in front of the player to make the remote work. Remote design is AWFUL. Doesn't play nice with the iPad AVControl2012 app. Discs take a LONG TIME to load, and while it's loading, you don't know whether it's *actually* loading or not.
