Pioneer UDP-LX500

THE BEST PLAYER FOR ALL YOUR HD CONTENT AND MUCH MORE

Pioneer UDP-LX500

Pioneer’s brand-new universal disc player brings the spectacle of Ultra HD Blu-ray™ to your home entertainment, with four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD.

Featuring three-block internal layout, Ultra Rigid Construction, and Double-Layered Chassis for a robust build, 6-layered main circuit board, SDR/HDR preset mode, and support for HDR10/Dolby Vision for quality picture, as well as premium audio DAC and Zero Signal Terminal for high-grade sound, the UDP-LX500 lets you enjoy the highest video resolution as well as your other digital disc collections.

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 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.

Ultra HD Blu-ray is the latest disc format with up to 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD.

In addition to Ultra HD Blu-ray, the UDP-LX500 is compatible with regular Blu-ray™, DVD, SACD, and audio CD, so you can enjoy the highest video resolution, as well as your digital disc collection on a single disc player.

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.

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.

With the precision quartz controller on a compatible AV receiver, Pioneer’s PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) eliminates distortion caused by timing errors.

It controls the amount of audio signals from the AV receiver to the UDP-LX500, giving the best possible digital-to-analogue conversion.

UDP-LX500 supports PQLS 2ch Audio, Multi-Surround, and Bit-stream.

The Zero Signal Terminal is a Pioneer-original feature dedicated to tuning audio and video quality without signal transmission.

By connecting the Zero Signal Terminal with the audio/video input terminal of an AV receiver etc., the reference level (GND) of the audio/video signals is aligned between the two devices, and the potential difference is suppressed, allowing a precise and high-quality signal transmission.
