With a construction quality and technical spec that goes straight to the top of the class, the Pioneer BDPLX88 is a reference product.

Built to last

The Pioneer BDPLX88 takes build quality to a reference level. Using a unique three-chamber construction, it has separate compartments for digital, analogue and power sections. The main block and power supply block are fully shielded and the casing has a 3mm iron base. Little wonder it weighs 13.4kg! With such heavyweight construction, vibrations are virtually eliminated, meaning reduced jitter and a more detailed sound.

Highest quality DACs for class-leading sound
When it comes to converting a digital signal into analogue, the BDPLX88 is one of the finest. Using four audiophile-grade Sabre 32ES9018 DACs per channel creates a highly refined and clean sound, with exceptional stereo sound staging. When connected to a suitable Pioneer AV receiver the PQLS jitter reduction system keeps sound smooth and natural, and it sounds pretty darn good with other brands too.

Obsessive attention to detail
As you'd expect from an 'LX' model, the entire audio signal has been scrutinised by Pioneer's experts and tuned with specially selected components for the highest performance. This obsessive attention to detail even includes a 'Zero Signal' port at the rear for additional grounding. This helps in further reducing background noise, giving the BDPLX88 an 'inky' black backdrop against which the subtlest notes can clearly be heard.

Vibrant video with 4K upscaling
With 4K TVs becoming widely available, finding a Blu-ray player that can make the most of them is well worth it. With its 4K 60p (HDMI 2.0) output and up-scaling, the Pioneer BDPLX88 fits the bill: the high quality video circuits offer superb picture resolution and can be extensively tuned for your particular display.

Universal compatibility
As well as Blu-ray, DVD and CDs, it also plays SACDs and DVD-Audio discs. These formats are capable of some of the highest quality audio possible and a vital part of many music collections. Just as important is the ability to play FLAC, ALAC, LPCM (WAV) and AIFF and multichannel files (FLAC, DSD, and WAV), right up to 192 kHz/24 bit resolution. A massive range of other formats is also supported including MKV and DivX HD, making the BDP-LX58 the only disc player you'll ever need.

Comprehensive connectivity
Use the LAN connection or optional Wi-Fi dongle and connect up to your home network. You've then access to the best of the web via apps such as YouTube and Picasa or streamed content from your PC or media server via DLNA. It's all easy to control via Pioneer's unique Apple/Android control app, iControl. Twin HDMI sockets are handy if you're using twin screens or have an older, non-3D equipped AV receiver, while twin USB ports situated front and rear offer a wide range of connectivity options.

If you're looking for the very best in Blu-ray then you can stop your search here. Blu-ray simply doesn't get better than this!

We'll happily come to you!
