Pioneer DCS-363 review

 

The DCS-363's front panel is a transparent piece of plastic broken only by the silver DVD drive door, USB socket and headphone output.

Pioneer DCS-363 review

 

A multi-media savvy home cinema all-in-one you can barely see but will never tire of hearing. And yes, it's got HD upscaling

Despite unfeasibly small speakers and a laughably low price tag, this Pioneer system punches miles above its weight in just about every way

If you like excellent sound quality with small and descrete speakers, then this is a very good system. There are better and more powerfull systems, but they come at a much higher price. Overall experience is excellent

Good quality sound and picture. Ease of use.

No optical sound input, therefore no surround sound from the TV (only DVD's).

Pioneer DCS-363

 

The sound is crisp and fantastic for all dvd and digital television. but it also doubles up as a mind blowing audio player. I almost feel like i'm sitting on the front row of a concert or in the middle of Fabrics main room.

manual difficult to read, but the set up was simple enough not to be a problem.

Product Specifications

The DCS-363 is a 360W home cinema system that will play your entire DVD and music collection: it is multi-format. If you frequently download movies from the Internet, the system can also playback DivX files. Alternatively, you can play your MP3, WMA or AAC (iTunes) files through the USB host; simply plug-in your USB memory stick or music player. The DCS-363 has a down-firing subwoofer, which because of its design delivers more powerful, deep sounds and bass reproduction, without the distortion you sometimes hear at higher volumes. The DCS-363 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 necessarily want an "invasion" of electronics equipment around the room. Whichever setting you choose, there is no loss of audio quality.
