The UDP-LX800 designed specifically for those who expect the best audio and video quality from their Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Pioneer even goes as far as describing it as a "true reference quality product.
The audio quality of the UDP-LX500 is of a high standard. And fortunately, the same attention to audio filament has found its way into the company's flagship model. That means the mechanical structure is specifically designed for rotational speeds up to 5,000 rpm, thanks to a combination of a lower center of gravity and a number of other techniques to suppress vibrations. This includes:
Internal layout with three blocks (power supply, drive / digital processing, analog audio)
By separating the internal layout of the player and separating it into three different physical "blocks" (consisting of power supply, drive / digital processing and analog audio), electromagnetic interference between each block is greatly reduced. Further, inserting a rigid frame structure into the player to contain and hold each 'block' takes structural integrity to a new level.
Solid steel top panel and aluminum side panels
A solid 1 mm thick steel plate is used for the top panel, while aluminum for the side panels provides excellent vibration dampening performance. From the outset, this player was designed to operate without the need for vents in the top and side panels, a common source of internal noise leakage from transport mechanisms. When this player is in use, it is the disc contents you hear, not the player.
A 4.6 mm thick, dual-layer composite chassis
Adding a 3 mm steel plate to the 1.6 mm thick steel plate chassis provides incredible rigidity and a very low center of gravity. Pioneer's focus on construction results in a player that weighs 13.8 kg (the UDP-LX500 weighs 10.3 kg).
UHD BD Drive housed in a rigid, honeycomb-stamped enclosure, coated with anti-vibration paint
Spring-loaded tray - effectively seals and isolates the drive, preventing rotational noise from being transmitted through the front of the drive to the outside world.
