Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-ray player


Does Pioneer know how to make a bad Blu-ray player? Danny doesn't think so.

The BDP-LX52's relatively high price tag will no doubt limit its appeal to dedicated home cinema fans, but if you have the cash and care about AV performance then we guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Pioneer BDP-LX52 review


The Pioneer BDP-LX52 is well worth the cash if your budget can stretch to it

Smart styling and easy control ; full spec for HD AV ; clean, detailed and colourful images ; clear, punchy sound

No multichannel analogue outputs

A worthwhile upgrade from Pioneer, the BDP-LX52 stands proud at this price-point

Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-ray player


When it comes to Blu-ray players, Pioneer always puts performance high on the agenda, an approach that's made it the darling of the home cinema cognoscenti. All of its decks to date have delivered stunning picture and sound quality, usually accompanied...

Picture and sound quality, build quality

Slow disc loading, won’t play media from USB, no Wi-Fi or multichannel outputs

Given the LX52’s wallet-busting price, the lack of bells and whistles is slightly jarring - there’s no Wi-Fi, multichannel outputs or USB media playback, all of which can be found on Samsung’s much cheaper BD-P3600. But what might convince you to crack...

Pioneer ups the ante with its latest Blu-ray spinner

Looks ; Picture quality ; Built-in memory

Won't play media via USB ; Slow disc loading

Typically brilliant performance from Pioneer, although not the knockout feature set we expected at this price

Review: Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-Ray Player


Tell any tech reviewer that you're on the look-out for an excellent Blu-ray player with stunning picture quality, great sound and brilliant upscaling qualities, then the chances are he or she will tell you to check out a Pioneer – and possibly the...

If you can afford the £500-odd to buy a Pioneer BDP-LX52, then do. Whilst the loading times are long, there’s nothing wrong in a bit of waiting in anticipation, as quite soon you’ll realise what’s coming next – you’ll be blown away by the quality and...

Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-ray Player


Pioneer's experience with optical disc in home entertainment applications goes back many years. The company carved out a very respectable niche for itself in the 1980s and 90s by standing firmly behind the LaserDisc format, rather than following the...

Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-ray Disc Player Review


How does a mid-range Pioneer BD player perform?

Expert review by : (

Pioneer BDP-LX 52


Superb HD-film picture., Above-average DVD playback., Loads of picture controls., Versatile HD-audio output., Effective jitter reduction in combination with Pioneer receivers.

Audible fan noise., Loading times are way too long.

There’s no question about it: Pioneer devices almost unfailingly produce top-quality pictures. On top of that, the BDP-LX 52 also sounds fantastic: Pioneer’s PQLS technology improves differentiation in HD-audio formats — although only if you use the...

Pioneer BDP-LX52


It definetly has high picture quality having viewed blu-ray discs on a 40" LED monitor and with good sound quality too having heard it through an AV amplifier with quality speakers. I viewed BBC's Planet Earth as a first disc to test and 'wow' was my...
