In designing this flagship universal UHD player, the engineers have drawn on the knowledge and development in the audio visual sector for over 30 year, combining beautiful craftsmanship with the latest advances video and audio processing. The UDP-LX800 adopts an extremely rigid construction and meticulous attention to detail to achieve high S/N for video and audio playback.
Double Layered Chassis
The UDP-LX800 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.
Rigid & Quiet BD Drive
The BD drive has been designed to suppress resonance caused by the high speed spinning of UHD discs by employing a honeycomb mechanical cover which is coated in an anti-vibration paint. Pioneer’s disc drive also adopts an acoustic damper tray which prevents the vibrations caused by the rotation of the disc spinning from the player’s sensitive electronic circuity. This is achieved by using a damper to isolate the disc tray from the front door, preventing vibrations entering the chassis as well as floating the mechanism from the base of the player.
Dedicated Analogue Audio Power Supply
The UDP-LX800 has separate power supplies for the main board and analogue audio circuitry to prevent power supply crosstalk between the video processing and analogue circuitry. A linear power supply with large capacity transformer and custom audio grade electrolytic capacitors is used for the analogue audio section for optimum sound quality. The transformer is electrical isolated from the audio circuitry by a Copper shield with ant-vibration paint and f-shape embossing to stop standing waves.
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.
Three-Section Internal Layout
The internal layout of the LX800 is superbly executed to fully optimize both video and audio playback. The power supplies, BD drive and audio board are separated into 3 compartmental blocks and fully shielded to prevent electrical and magnetic interference.
High-End 2-Channel Analogue Audio
The LX800 2-channel audio board uses several design elements from the successful PD-70AE Super Audio CD player. The audio power board features independent power supplies for the digital and analogue circuitry, with custom audio grade electrolytic power supply capacitors for high quality sound. The power and signal paths are separated for left and right channels with a central bus bar to provide a stable ground. The D-A converter stage features 2x Sabre ESS9026PRO DAC’s with fully balanced circuit topology from the D/A conversion through to the L/R outputs. Both balanced XLR and single-ended RCA outputs are available.
Transport Only Function
The LX800 features a ‘transport only’ function which enables the user to switch off the power to the analogue audio stages and thus improving the S/N for the HDMI output. This clever feature further improves the quality of playback from movies, HDMI audio and digital audio.
