PIONEER UDP-LX800 AUDIOCOM CINEMA EDITION
Pioneer UDP-LX800 Cinema Edition is the ultimate 4K UHD player for the high-end home theatre systems. The flagship LX800 Cinema Edition has unmatched picture quality and movie sound delivering unrivalled performance from your movie collection.
The LX800 Cinema Edition extracts the full measure of performance from DVD, Blu-ray discs or movies stored on NAS drives maintaining the highest level of accuracy of the native visual information. The picture quality has increased definition, improved contrast, greater three-dimensionality (3D), truer colours and tones so your visual perception is of an image that is more lifelike, and convincing.
George Lucas is renowned for saying that sound is 50% of the moviegoing experience. So our commitment to getting the best movie sound from the LX800 Cinema Edition is paramount. Movie sound from the 800 Cinema Edition is compelling, recreating a truly immersive experience from your favourite films. Dynamics are superb across the whole frequency range, with the lowest sub-bass delivering both power and control. The mid-range to high frequencies has increased definition and coherence with improved spatial qualities.
The LX800 Cinema Edition was conceptualized to provide the viewer with a truly lifelike cinematic experience presented with every detail intact. This is accomplished with no restraints in the quality of power supplies, regulation stages and clock system. There is no compromise made in the quality of components and design, all units are meticulously assembled for the best possible performance.
Fully Discrete, Ultra-Low Noise Linear Power Supply: The power supply arrangements in high-end universal Blu-ray players are typically configured so that a high performance linear power supply is adopted for the analogue audio circuitry. For the main board (video and digital circuitry), we commonly find these circuits are powered from a lower cost switch mode power supply (SMPS). It has been firmly established that a high performance linear power supply can outperform a switch mode power supply in several key areas. A linear power supply has improved noise rejection, lower output noise, and with no high frequency switching noise, minimal RFI/EMI.
These attributes are equally desirable for video quality and movie sound, and very important to achieve the best performance. The Pioneer LX800 Cinema Edition uses a completely new linear power supply and eliminates the SMPS. The fully discrete power supply utilizes a low noise toroidal transfer, discrete rectifiers and multiple, discrete ultra-low noise regulators. The benefit is a significant improvement in the video image and audio sound quality. For video, there is greater detail, truer colours, a more dynamic contrast, improved image stability, and better depth. HDMI and digital audio is also notably improved with increased resolution, greater depth, and improved sound-stage.
Femtosecond System Clock: A significant feature of the 800 Cinema Edition is the very low jitter clock that is implemented for the main video processing. In the 800 Cinema Edition we utilize a custom, very low jitter clock for the Mediatek System on Chip (SoC). The Reference clock achieves the highest level of accuracy and has a measured jitter performance of 77 femtoseconds (0.077 picoseconds - RMS: 100 Hz to 100 KHz) and +/- 0.5ppm stability, amongst the lowest jitter in the industry. As a result, the video image quality is more vivid image with greater clarity, better depth. Colours are bolder and richer, tones more natural.
RFI & Microphony: The operating conditions of video and audio are much improved when they can work in a quiet environment. Inside any Blu-ray player the video processing generates its own noise as well as succumbing to external noise which can affect the players overall performance. Here we incorporate materials at the component level for optimum power and signal transfer and reduced losses.
High Performance Connectors: It has been firmly established that the quality of AC power connections is a very important consideration in the performance of video and audio. With that priority in mind, we use a PUM pure Copper IEC inlet with Gold plated contacts for optimum power transfer. Hand-crafted litz cabling carries AC power from IEC to the power supplies for the highest quality mains connection.
No Analogue Audio Mods: The 800 Cinema Edition is designed as a universal transport for Home Theatre systems. As such there are no modifications made directly to the analogue audio board. That being said, due to the improvements in the main power supply and system clock the analogue audio quality is indirectly improved. Connect your 800 Cinema Edition to your Hi-Fi to play your CD/SACD’s or lossless audio files and you will hear significantly better sound quality!
Multi-Zone Blu-ray & Region Free DVD: This player is Region Free for DVD & Multi Zone for Blu-ray. This is a modification for the Pioneer that enables the player to play movies from different regions or zones. The DVD and Blu-ray region code change is easily done with the remote control from the setup menu, there is no need to reboot the player.
