Pioneer DCS-353


Pioneer's humble home cinema in a box has a budget price tag and plain Jane looks - but there's plenty to get excited about…

Impressive build. HDMI. Sharp, vivid picture. Can upscale to 720p and 1080i

Bass is a little warm. No component video for those who don't have HDMI

Pioneer DCS-353


Simple to connect. Easy to use. Great sound. Great value for money.

Not wireless, but for this money, I can put up with a bit more spaghetti!

Product Specifications

Get perfect picture quality from a variety of sources - with ideally sized satellite speakers. The system's HDMI terminal means that you can make a direct digital audio and video connection with any other HDMI-capable source (like a plasma or A/V receiver) with just a single cable - and be guaranteed precise digital quality audio and video. Aside from immersive DVD surround sound, you can play MP3, WMA and DivX files - the system also has a USB host terminal, which gives you additional connection possibilities. You can even view a JPEG slideshow, whilst simultaneously playing music - a new way of displaying your favorite photos. The DCS-353 has an Easy Room Set Up feature, which fine-tunes the sound, output according to your own environment - you're ready to press play in no time.
