We never really have been that good with anything tech wise, but we was told about different home cinema systems by one of our family friends who said how good the systems are. We have always enjoyed our lazy days in the house eating nice fod, drinking good wine and watching some great movies, but we wanted a little more than just our television to do this on.
Our friend came over and suggested this Pioneer set. I thought the price of this was brilliant, at only £200 i thought it was a bargain compared to some of the home cinema systems out there, i mean some of them go up to £2000! For the average man like me and you that amount of money is not just readily available!
We had our system delivered and set up for us, so we did not break it before we used it ( Knowing my luck i would have broken it too). The surround sound is my favorite, we always watch horror movies and this surround sound makes them so much better than they was before, it is actually like being at the cinema now and we love it!!
We never had surround sound before this, but it really is a pleasure to own, the best £200 i have spent in a long time! It works with music too, it makes every good song sound brilliant. The speakers go very very loud, which is not really a feature we use, but i can imagine people who like to listen to their music really loud to enjoy this.
Overall, i would suggest getting this product if you are looking for a decent home cinema kit. Buy some good wine, great food, lay back and enjoy the feeling of being at the cinema in the comfort of your own home!
For the price, this unit is awesome. £189 - £199 is great for a unit which gives you DTS, Pro Logic 2. Dont be fooled by the smallish base box. It is seriously load with great bass lines. 450 watt, 75 watts per channel. Also plays cd's and has a FM and AM tuner.
I got rid of my Denon amplifier and Bose speaker system and now use this as my main stereo system which givs a great sound. Very pleased.
Adding an element of functional design, this home cinema system delivers pure cinematic surround sound to your living space. Cutting-edge sound technology like Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro Logic II (including extended "Music" parameters: Centre Width, Dimension and Panorama) processing and the new Dialogue Enhancement DSP feature for enhanced centre channel reproduction, are perfectly packaged in the curvy main unit and corresponding superb-sounding surround satellite speaker set and subwoofer. Don't let the slim lines of this unit fool you. The system still packs power - 450 W (75 W x 6) RMS. The ideal partner for digital living, it can play back DVD-Video, DVD-RW (both "Video" mode and "Video Recording" mode), DVD-R, CD, VideoCD, SVCD, CD-R and CD-RW, as well as JPEG, WMA and MP3 files on CD-R and CD-RW discs. Ease and convenience are second-nature thanks to a realm of intelligent elements ranging from the restyled, straightforward TV preset remote control and easy Room and Seat Position Set-up to installation extras like the colour-coded one-touch speaker terminals and Euro-SCART terminal for easy installation and pure RGB video output.
