Product Details

Pioneer Elite Black Ultra HD Blu-ray Player - UDP-LX500

Elite’s brand-new universal disc player brings the spectacle of Ultra HD Blu-ray™ to your home entertainment, with four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD. Featuring three-block internal layout, Ultra Rigid Construction, and Double-Layered Chassis for a robust build, 6-layered main circuit board, SDR/HDR preset mode, and support for HDR10/Dolby Vision for quality picture, as well as premium audio DAC and Zero Signal Terminal for high-grade sound, the UDP-LX500 lets you enjoy the highest video resolution as well as your other digital disc collections.

Key Features:

  • Ultra HD Blu-ray Playback
  • Three-Block Internal Layout (Power Supply, Drive/Digital Processing, Analog Audio)
  • 6-Layered Main Circuit Board for High S/N Ratio
  • PQLS Jitter-less Sound Transmission


  • Three-Block Internal Layout
    The blocks for power supply, drive/digital processing, and analog audio are separated into three to eliminate electrical and magnetic interference between the blocks.
  • Ultra-Rigid Construction without Radiation Holes
    Even the holes for heat radiation are excluded to realize a flat form with optimal electric circuit design, and minimum mechanical noise from the rotating system. The result is significantly low noise and even more rigid and stable chassis structure.
  • Double-Layered Chassis with Rigid Under Base for Rigidity and Low Center of Gravity
    The 1.6 mm-thick chassis base is reinforced with a 3 mm-thick steel plate Rigid Under Base. This Double-Layered Chassis structure provides a low center-of-gravity and overall rigidity that prevents the transfer of external vibration to the inner chassis, and offers a superior reading of the disc.
  • Ultra HD Blu-ray Playback
    Ultra HD Blu-ray is the latest disc format with up to 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD. In addition to Ultra HD Blu-ray, the UDP-LX500 is compatible with regular Blu-ray™, DVD, SACD, and audio CD, so you can enjoy the highest video resolution, as well as your digital disc collection on a single disc player.
  • 6-Layered Main Circuit Board for High S/N Ratio
    A 6-layered IVH is used for the main circuit board to thoroughly eliminate digital noise. This optimizes the digital signal wiring and minimises GND impedance, and dramatically improves S/N ratio in audio/video signal processing. The 18 Gbps transmission through the latest HDMI standard becomes even more precise.
  • SDR/HDR Preset Mode for Optimal Performance for the Display
    In addition to the video parameter “Reference” for reproducing the original master quality, you can select “LCD TV,” “OLED TV,” or “Projector”for the video quality best suited to your display. Additionally, there are SDR/HDR presets for each video parameter, that automatically switches between SDR preset and HDR preset according to the output signal.
  • Disc Information On-Screen Display
    You can display the disc information on your screen by pressing and holding the remote control’s DISPLAY button. In addition to the playing disc’s details, you can easily check mastering information such as MaxFALL (Maximum Frame Average Light Level) and MaxCLL (Maximum Content Light Level) available on some HDR content, as well as HDMI output information.
  • PQLS Jitter-less Sound Transmission
    With the precision quartz controller on a compatible AV receiver, Pioneer’s PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) eliminates distortion caused by timing errors. It controls the amount of audio signals from the AV receiver to the UDP-LX500, giving the best possible digital-to-analog conversion. UDP-LX500 supports PQLS 2ch Audio, Multi-Surround, and Bit-stream.
  • Zero Signal Terminal
    The Zero Signal Terminal is a Pioneer-original feature dedicated to tuning audio and video quality without signal transmission. By connecting the Zero Signal Terminal with the audio/video input terminal of an AV receiver etc., the reference level (GND) of the audio/video signals is aligned between the two devices, and the potential difference is suppressed, allowing a precise and high-quality signal transmission.
