Pioneer BDP-LX88 review

 

A stellar movie performance, but its stereo performance and lack of streaming apps let it down

Crisp, detailed picture Well built Good remote app Precise movie sound performance Solid, taut bass

Minimal built-in streaming services Sound on the lean side Stereo performance could be better

If you’re largely concerned with movie performance, you’ll find little to fault here, but at this price we need more for the full five. Rival player the Oppo BDP-105D offers a better all-round performance and feature set. MORE: Best Buys: Blu-ray players

Pioneer BDP-LX88 review

 

Much like Thor's Uru hammer, only the home cinema worthy will be able to lift Pioneer's mighty BDP-LX88 Blu-ray player. Tipping the scales at an enormous 13.4kg, it boasts more armour than Brad Pitt's tank, and is heavier than many AV receivers.

Supreme build quality; excellent video performance; uncanny musicality; powerful signal processing options

Will be overly complex for many; token streaming services; prone to hanging when navigating networked sources; slow disc loading

Pioneer BDP-LX88

 

Pioneer slår et slag for fysiske formater med en absolutt panservogn av en Blu-ray spiller!

BDP-LX88 utstråler kvalitet fra innerst til ytterst, med en nærmest skuddsikker konstruksjon som også resulterer i svært høy ytelse i alle ledd. En raskere, skarpere og mer vellydende multispiller skal du lete lenge etter

Dette er en kostbar spiller for entusiasten som verdsetter det lille ekstra. Mangler mulighet for Netflix-strømming

Pioneer BDP-LX88 er en tvers igjennom rålekker Blu-ray spiller med svært høy ytelse i alle ledd. Bildekvaliteten fra Blu-ray og DVD er absolutt i referanseklassen. Likevel er det ved musikklytting i stereo at Pioneer-spilleren imponerer aller mest, med...

Pioneer BDP-LX 88 (Test)

 

Blu-ray-Player im vierstelligen Euro-Bereich haben normalerweise nur audio-phile Edel-Schmieden wie Arcam und Cambridge Audio oder Exoten wie Oppo im Programm. Die Top-Modelle der asiatischen Massenhersteller schlagen hingegen meist mit gerade mal 200...

TEST: Pioneer Blu-ray-Player BDP-LX88 – Highend is back

 

Hochwertige Blu-ray-Player sind mittlerweile Mangelware. Schon derjenige, der 300 EUR für einen BD-Spieler ausgibt, wird oft – zu Unrecht – belächelt. Schaut man im Internet, so kann man schon für 50 EUR Marken-BD-Player erstehen. Da muten die 1.499...

Test av Pioneer BDP-LX88

 

Pioneer slår ett slag för fysiska format med en tvättäkta pansarvagns-Blu-ray!

BDP-LX88 utstrålar kvalitet inifrån och ut, med en närmast skottsäker konstruktion som ger enormt höga prestanda på alla fronter. En snabbare, skarpare och mer välljudande multispelare får du leta länge efter!

En kostsam spelare för fantaster som uppskattar det där lilla extra. Kan inte streama Netflix.

パイオニア「BDP-LX88」1万字レビュー − 最高峰モデルの画質・音質を貝山知弘が徹底分析

 

パイオニアから6年ぶりに登場したフラグシップBDプレーヤー「BDP-LX88」。最高峰モデルの画質・音質を貝山知弘が1万字にわたって徹底分析する。

『ヒッチコック』は、色乗りのよさ、色表現のリアルな美しさで光る作品でもある。アンソニー・ホプキンスが「サイコ」撮影中のヒッチコック監督を演じる作品だが、ジャネット・リー役のスカーレット・ヨハンソンの美しさが光る。メイクを施した肌の質感と肌色が見事に表出されている。

ガチンコ対決!パイオニア「BDP-LX88」vs OPPO「BDP-105DJP」

 

パイオニアから6年ぶりに登場したハイエンドBDプレーヤー「BDP-LX88」と、現行のユニバーサルプレーヤーで随一の人気を誇るOPPO「BDP-105DJP」。人気・注目ともに高い両製品の機能や画質、音質を比較した。

最後に、それぞれの機種との組み合わせにお薦めの環境を挙げておこう。パイオニアのBDP-LX88は、4Kプロジェクターを含むハイエンドの映像機器やオーディオシステムとの組み合わせに向く。一方、OPPOのBDP-105DJPは4KテレビやミドルクラスのフルHDプロジェクターとの組み合わせで真価を発揮するはずだ。また、USB-DACやヘッドホン出力を搭載するなど、1台で様々なソースを楽しみたいユーザーにもお薦めだ。

Als zeer goed! De Pioneer BDP-LX88 wordt door testredacteuren gezien als één van de betere Blu-ray en HD DVD-spelers. Door de wijze waarop BesteProduct.nl de expertscore berekent, haalt maar een beperkt deel van de producten een score van 7,5 of hoger....

Goed gebouwd ; Scherp, gedetailleerd beeld ; Goede remote app ; Nauwkeurige film-geluidsprestaties ; Solide, strakke bas

Minimale ingebouwde streamingdiensten ; Geluid aan de magere kant ; Stereopresentatie kan beter
