EISA UNIVERSAL PLAYER 2019-2020 Pioneer UDP-LX500

The UDP-LX500 is a machine of many talents. Both a state-of-the-art 4K Blu-ray spinner and a high-performance audio player, it will improve any home theatre setup. On the video side, format support covers both the HDR10+ and Dolby Vision dynamic HDR formats, with features including metadata information and display type selection to enable fine-tuned playback. For audiophiles, it offers compatibility with CD, SACD and DVD-Audio discs, plus hi-res files including DSD. Sound quality is precise and detailed, while UHD discs dazzle with sharpness and colour rendering. Moreover, its premium nature extends to design and build – the LX500 is whisper quiet in operation, while its gorgeous chassis design means you won’t want to hide it away.
