Ultimate audio quality
Meticulously engineered, the UDP-LX800 uses the highest quality components for stunning sound quality. Reference grade ESS SABRE ES9026PRO DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) ensure a vast dynamic range and vivid detail. The oversized power supply and custom-made capacitors deliver the sort of clean, stable power that many amps would be proud have on tap. Separate left and right, dual-mono, signal paths throughout the audio stage delivers perfect channel balance and sound staging.
The most accurate disc reading
Reading discs as accurately as possible is vital for the purest and most precise sound. For this reason, the UDP-LX800 benefits from a super-rigid and quiet optical drive. The transport uses a honeycomb mechanism with anti-vibration paint, acoustic damper and float-mounted mechanism. This obsessive attention to detail means the laser reads the disc as accurately as possible, giving you the most natural and realistic sound.
Every element of this flagship UHD Blu-ray player is built to the highest standards. The three-part chassis construction keeps the power supply, digital and analogue sections completely separate for maximum isolation. The ultra-rigid case features a steel top plate, aluminium side panels and a 3mm thick steel base plate. The heavyweight case damps vibrations and protects the electronics from electrical interference, helping to reduce distortion to the lowest levels possible.
Use with a matching Pioneer AV receiver for the ultimate sonic precision
The UBP-LX800 also features Pioneer’s advanced PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) jitter reduction system. Link up to a compatible AV receiver and the lock between the units eliminates distortion caused by timing errors. Getting rid of ‘jitter’ between components gives the most life-like sound and sound that’s just as the creator intended.
Professional connectivity – Balanced XLR
Featuring balanced XLR outputs, the UDP-LX800 has studio-grade connectivity. Connect to a compatible AVR and enjoy ultra-low distortion, as balanced XLR cables are far less susceptible to signal loss and interference.
Get the Best from UHD 4K, with HDR10
UHD Blu-ray already offers the highest quality source for your TV. Combine this with HDR and the best gets better. Compatible with HDR10, the UDPLX800 makes the most of your compatible HDR TV. If you don't have an HDR-equipped TV, one of the modes lets you select HDR to SDR (Standard Definition Resolution) for enhanced viewing on a regular TV.
Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
This Pioneer UHD Blu-ray player also decodes signals that have encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.
Universal disc playback
Designed for lovers of both music and movies, the UDP-LX800 is compatible with a huge range of disc formats. As well as UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray (including 3D), DVD and CD it will also play SACD and DVD-Audio discs, making it a truly universal player – handling all music and video discs you might have in your precious collection.
Twin HDMI sockets enhance this player’s versatility. A second, audio only, HDMI output gives you the chance to enjoy UHD picture quality while also using an older, incompatible, AV receiver. Simply connect your TV to the main HDMI and AVR to the secondary output. Optical and coaxial digital outputs are also standard.
Twin USB sockets
At the front of the player, a USB socket is perfect for connecting a USB memory stick and playing back stored media. For plug-and-play audio and video, you can't get easier than this. At the back, a second USB is ideal for permanently connected USB devices, such as a hard drive system.
Maximise the full potential of your projector, big TV and home cinema sound system with a source that does it justice – and then some. The Pioneer UDP-LX800.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephen1882 from Great alrounder Bought this as I wanted to upgrade my cd player, blu-ray player and stereo amp. Listened to a variety of combinations including Marantz, Roksan Caspian and K3 Arcam and several others. Love the sound on both stereo and surround sound. 4k picture is outstanding. I use a Yamaha 3070 for the surround sound and front speakers through preouts into Roksan k3 integrated amp which has a bypass for this set up. I can then use the Pioneer on direct for stereo or surround sound. They level of detail is phenomenal. Instruments are well separated but the overall sound is so cohesive. Very happy. Great service from Adam and the other staff at Preston.
