Gerry , East Grinstead Quality and value lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Well built, looks great and even better sounds good. The range of features are the best, allowing a true one box solution at high quality. DVD upscaling to 1080p is good too. Pity all the features in the LX01 are not in the BD version.
Bad points:
Manual is poorly written and in 2 parts, which makes setting up and operation difficult. I still have not mastered the recording functions. Only other thing is Pioneer should include all the features in the BD version.

Manufacturer's Description

Originally designed as the ideal home entertainment companion to our KURO TV’s, the LX01 is a 250GB hard disk drive DVD recorder with integrated digital DVB-T tuner, HDMI with 1080p scaling and a 400W digital power amplifier.

The system is a powerful, beautiful addition to your living room.

Omni-directional speaker design
3D Speaker DesignThe LX01 has 2 combined front/centre speakers and 2 rear speakers; each of which has a distinctive 3-dimensional shape.

Conventional speakers generate directional sound, whereas these 3-dimensional speakers generate sound fields in all directions. The effect is very similar to musical instruments being played in a live performance.

Powerful sub for a fuller sound

The LX01 subwoofer-receiver is also unique in design. It has dual-drive subs, which enable more powerful handling of lower frequencies.

In total the LX01 is a high-power 8-channel system; the front, centre, rear and subs each have 2 dedicated channels. A full, rich surround sound is guaranteed.

Premium DVD recorder with 1080p output
Besides being a fully-fledged DVD recorder with GuidePlus+ Electronic Programme Guide, the system will play every kind of commercially available CD and DVD, as well as most compressed media formats.

The system also has an extended Music Library feature; you can store your favourite tracks and albums on the hard disk. The LX01 will also automatically add track and album titles (it uses the Gracenote CDDB database); a convenient and time-saving feature.
You can copy CDs to the hard disk at maximum 16 times the normal speed; and at the original LPCM quality (that means that none of the original sound quality will be lost). Additionally, you can also upload digital images or compressed audio files at high speed, from disc or via the front-in USB host. Connecting a home PC (running Windows Media Player 10 or later) via USB, for transferring audio files directly on to the LX01 hard disk, is easy.

Last but not least you can connect your Blu-ray Disc player via HDMI and the LX01 will not only turn into a Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD capable amplifier, but swiftly pass on the 1080p / 24 Hz video on to your flat screen TV.
