Elite’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.
Certified by the UHD Alliance, the new Elite UDP-LX500 meets or exceeds strict performance specifications for resolution (4K – 4 times sharper than HD), high dynamic range (HDR – brilliant brights, deepest darks), and wide color spectrum (more lifelike colors). It also focuses on other video and audio attributes including immersive audio (multi-dimensional sound) among others. These performance advances guarantee the UDP-LX500 is able to fully replicate the richness of life’s sights and sounds, enabling viewers to more accurately experience the content creator’s vision.
Even the holes for heat radiation are excluded to realize a flat form with optimal electric circuit design, and minimum mechanical noise from the rotating system. The result is significantly low noise and even more rigid and stable chassis structure.
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 center-of-gravity and overall rigidity that prevents the transfer of external vibration to the inner chassis, and offers a superior reading of the disc.
A 6-layered IVH is used for the main circuit board to thoroughly eliminate digital noise. This optimizes 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.
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.
