Pioneer ships the LX010BD Blu-ray HTIB to the UK

We all knew that eventually Blu-ray would hit the home theater in a box market and while the Pioneer LX010BD isn’t the first, it seems well equipped. For £2000 ($3,137 USD) British AV snobs will be rock’n out to 5.1 audio sound out of dodecahedron compact speakers (it means 12-sided shape, playboy) that claim to produce omni-directional sound for a better surround experience. Plus, the system ships with a LCD touchscreen remote which should partially justify the systems stratospherically high price. To bad the Blu-ray player is only Profile 1.1 and therefore cannot enjoy any of BD-Live’s fun features ’cause otherwise, this is one nice HTIB.
