Excerpt: The appeal of home cinema in a box systems is easy to define. Why buy lots of different kit that may or may not work well together, and that will almost certainly clutter up every corner of your living room, when you could pick up a one-make system to do the same thing? All the more so when it's as compact and stylish as Pioneer's new LX01BD? The answer is performance.
Pros: Lovely picture performance, excellent specification, very convenient, stylish and easy to accommodate
Cons: Sound badly lacks focus and punch, not much midrange to speak of, not cheap
Excerpt: I have always fancied a dodecahedron in the living room, but I confess I was thinking perhaps some objet d'art, or even a light fitting, rather than speakers. For it is an irregular 12-sided polygon (and no parrot jokes), upon which the satellite speakers of Pioneer's LX-01BD system is based.
