Pre-order for September

The Pioneer UDP-LX500 is a brand new Ultra HD universal Blu-ray that has been designed to optimize performance from the latest 4K UHD movies supporting HDR10 and Dolby Vision. It also features an AKM AK4490EQ DAC chip for playback of CD and SACD, with 3 digital filter modes.

Double Layered Chassis
The UDP-LX500 features a 1.6mm rigid double-layer chassis with 3mm thick steel base plate and an internal layout that creates a low centre of gravity, minimizing mechanical noise from the rotating BD-Rom drive. The BD-Rom drive employs a honeycomb shaping in the steel top plate to ensure high structural strength. This double-layer chassis also provides the noise cancelling of external vibrations and providing superior disc reading.

Three-Section Internal Layout
Pioneer has paid specific attention to the internal layout of the UDP-LX500 with an arrangement that separates the power supply, drive/digital processing and audio circuitry into 3 specific blocks. The advantages are reduced electrical and magnetic interference between the power supplies and sensitive digital and audio circuits.

6-Layer PCB Main Board
A multi-layered circuit board with 6 layers is used for the main board (video/digital processing) which enables the shortest path for digital signals and lowest ground impedance. This improves the S/N of audio and video signal processing for a highly accurate transfer of both video and audio data.

Analogue/Digital Audio Outputs
The analogue audio section features a 2-channel RCA output and adopts the AKM AK4490EQ premium DAC chip. The DACs low-pass filter comprises of a pair of JRC 5532 audio op-amps with a capacitor coupled output stage. In addition to the analogue outputs, there is also a coaxial S/PDIF and optical digital output for connecting the LX500 to an external DAC.

USB, HDMI Digital Inputs/Outputs
The LX500 is equipped with two USB ports, one on the front of the player and a second on the rear panel. There are also 2 HDMI outputs, ‘Main’ for video output and ‘Sub’ which outputs digital audio only.
