London, Not so impressed pioneer lover

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Sleek black look.
Bad points:
Sound quality especially bass is quite poor, despite trying different speaker settings. Too expensive for what's on offer, bearing in mind that most people like myself would have bought it as a home cinema system not HDD or ditigal box etc

Bad points:
Complex to set up

Pravin, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Undisputedly one of the best AV systems money can buy. Sound is amazing, crisp and clear. any one who's owned pioneer systems before wouldnt have to think twice before going for this product. i've owned pioneer AV system before, that was around 10yrs ago, with a 12" woofer and midrange systems (box speakers) that was mind blasting. This one here literally plays any media format that you throw in. Looks are amazing, u can save lot of space by mounting them vertically and still not lose the surround sound effect. Overall i'm very happy with the product, though a bit too overpriced, if you look at it as seperates, its well worth the money.
Bad points:
No Equaliser, but you have quite a few sound effects available. Did not get the Surround sound i was looking for, but i'm yet to explore the full features, 2 remote control is a bit annoying, other than that its a perfect product, but i can gaurantee that all the minus points will be offset by its crisp clear sound and features. I havent tried recording movies yet, waiting for skyHD box. once thats in, m sure it'll be even better.

Manufacturer's Description

Premium media centre

The RCS-LX60D is an advanced media centre that enables you to play, record and store almost every kind of media format; even your digital photographs, digital music and footage from your camcorder.

And of course you can enjoy your entire DVD collection, too. The RCS-LX60D is multi-format, giving you quality playback and recording on every DVD format.

You can copy CDs to the hard disk (at a high-speed rate of 6 times the normal speed), store digital images or compressed audio files, from disc or your PC via the front-in USB.

Copy and edit footage from your camcorder via the DV-In, and if the need arises, you can even print images via a compatible printer connected directly to the system.

1080p, full high definition

The RCS-LX60D enables a scaling option up to 1080p via HDMI. So you’re guaranteed the highest viewing resolution, regardless of the source.

The system has an integrated DVB-T tuner, which gives you access to a wide range of local digital and analogue terrestrial television and radio stations. If you use pay TV, you can plug your smart card directly into the CI slot; the benefit is that you no longer require an additional decoder box.

Above all, the system is easy to use; one straightforward remote gives you quick and easy access to all the functions you need.

Smart speaker solution

The RCS-LX60D includes a ‘Front Stage Surround Advance’ feature. What this means is that you have the option to place the speakers in the traditional 5.1 surround setting around your living room, or alternatively place them alongside your television.

This is ideal if you have limited space, or don’t want an “invasion” of electronics equipment around the room. Whichever setting you choose, there is no loss of audio quality.

In addition, the RCS-LX60D also has our unique Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System (MCACC), which automatically analyses your room environment and calibrates the system speakers to deliver a sound that it tailor-made to your home.

One coherent solution

The RCS-LX60D matches perfectly with our flat screen TVs; it shares the both the technical and aesthetic DNA.

The benefit is that you can enjoy a system that not only operates coherently (and can be controlled by a single remote control), but that looks like a coherent, single solution, too.
