Very powerful sound system no doubt. Chances are your neighbours won't mind if you kept them awake all night, if you have a good taste in music that is. Lightweight and easy to handle. Superb sound quality for the price and subsequently offers value...

Signs of cost cutting. Branding of Pioneer logo downgraded on a few speakers, 'open disc button' placed right next to switch off button which means you can inadvertently turn it off at times, too many wires to connect, disc can take quite long to load,...

Pioneer BCS-212


Okay - does the job.

Discs load quite slowly. Remote has to point at unit from short distance and very directly. Other remote controls we have can be pointed from further away and from numerous angles (eg Skybox)
