UDP-LX800

UNIVERSAL DISC PLAYER FLAGSHIP FOR UHD BD, BD, DVD AND CD

UDP-LX800

This flagship universal disc player is the embodiment of Pioneer’s considerable expertise amassed over the years through the development of successive optical disc players.

Elaborately engineered for the ideal disc playback, the UDP-LX800 features extremely rigid construction to achieve high S/N ratio for quality audio and video performance.

With support for the latest Ultra HD Blu-ray™ format, you can enjoy the beautiful spectacle with four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD.

Two ESS SABRE PRO Series DACs are used in parallel to provide audiophile sound.

Other features include SDR/HDR Preset Mode, Direct/Transport Function, and XLR balanced output terminal.

THREE-PART CHASSIS STRUCTURE

The blocks for power supply, drive/digital processing, and analogue audio are separated into three to eliminate electrical and magnetic interference between the blocks.

The rigid beams placed between the blocks further reinforce the structure, while the internal layout is optimally designed to minimise vibration and signal loss.

6-LAYERED MAIN CIRCUIT BOARD FOR HIGH S/N RATIO

A 6-layered IVH is used for the main circuit board to thoroughly eliminate digital noise.

This optimises the digital signal wiring and minimises GND impedance, and dramatically improves S/N ratio in audio/video signal processing.

The 18 Gbps transmission through the latest HDMI standard becomes even more precise.

AUDIO CIRCUITRY FOR QUALITY SOUND

The technologies for Pioneer’s SACD player PD-70AE is incorporated to further improve the analogue audio block.

The paths for L and R signals are made identical including the pattern and parts layout.

The L/R signal balance is strictly maintained, resulting in evermore precise and superior separation during playback.

The bus bar between L and R signals also help to stabilise the ground.

ULTRA-RIGID CONSTRUCTION

Even the holes for heat radiation are excluded to realise a flat form with optimal electric circuit design, to minimise the mechanical motion sound from the BD drive.

The result is significantly low noise and even more rigid and stable chassis structure.

RIGID UNDER BASE AND LOW CENTRE OF GRAVITY

The 1.6 mm-thick chassis base is reinforced with a 3 mm-thick steel plate Rigid Under Base.

This Double-Layered Chassis structure provides a low centre-of-gravity and overall rigidity that prevents the transfer of external vibration to the inner chassis, and offers a superior reading of the disc.

DISC INFORMATION ON-SCREEN DISPLAY   

You can display the disc information on your screen by pressing and holding the remote control’s DISPLAY button.

In addition to the playing disc’s details, you can easily check mastering information such as MaxFALL (Maximum Frame Average Light Level) and MaxCLL (Maximum Content Light Level) available on some HDR content, as well as HDMI output information.

TRANSPORT FUNCTION FOR PURE DIGITAL AUDIO/VIDEO OUTPUT

The function completely turns off the analogue audio circuitry from power supply to output, by cutting the power supply to the transformer during HDMI connection.

The HDMI’s S/N ratio further improves and realises highquality audio and video playback.

LARGE-CAPACITY POWER TRANSFORMER

The dedicated large-capacity power transformer for the analogue audio circuitry and the custom capacitor constitute the superior power circuitry capable of instantaneous power supply.

The unnecessary electromagnetic wave generated by the transformer is confined within the copperplated shield case with anti-vibration paint.

The f-hole-shaped embossing also helps to suppress standing-waves within the case, thereby achieving sound quality with both dynamic and silent features.

The power supply circuitry has a case with an F clef emboss for suppressing standing waves, and black anti-vibration paint, allowing stable and high-quality power supply to the drive and digital blocks.
