Following in a long history of CD player, DVD player and Blu-ray player upgrades by Audiocom the Pioneer modifications benefit from our work with brands including OPPO, Marantz, Denon, and Sony players. This new Cinema Edition modification has been developed to get the optimum performance from the Pioneer UDP-LX500 for home theater systems.
The power supply forms the foundation for any video or audio product with factors like noise or isolation determining picture quality and sound. While not all switch-mode power supplies (SMPS) can be categorised as noisy, the traditional SMPS used in UHD players have high output noise and introduce unwanted high frequency switching noise. We take the players standard SMPS and replace it with a fully discrete ultra-low noise linear supply. The new power supply utilizes a low noise custom toroidal transformer and Schottky diodes. The discrete regulators stages feature an ultra-low noise voltage reference in conjunction with specially selected components for the lowest noise floor.
The clock and jitter for the main processor chip is an important factor when it comes to picture quality and HDMI audio. But equally, the implementation of a better quality clock is the key to optimum performance. Our years in the development of very low jitter clocks and installing across a diverse range of products have provided a wealth of experience in optimising clock performance. We upgrade the oscillator for the MediaTek main processor with a custom Reference clock. This new clock has extremely low jitter, 77 femtosecond which equates to 0.077 picoseconds (RMS: 100 Hz to 100 kHz). The new clock is professionally mounted using military spec shielded power cable and high-quality MCX clock cable.
The LX500 has been carefully arranged to electrically isolate power supply, video, and analogue audio circuit blocks. Beyond the manufacturers mechanical shielding we further reduce RFI and EMI energy within the player by implementing new materials for power supplies and video circuitry. The results are a reduced noise floor for power and signal paths and quieter environment.
The modification transforms the performance of video playback, the image quality has increased definition, improved contrast, greater three-dimensionality (3D), truer colours and tones so your visual perception is of an image that is more lifelike, and convincing.
There is a similar performance increase to sound with depth and ambience that’s making the movie more emotionally engaging. The sound is cleaner and more precise, whether the movie soundtrack, special effects or spoken dialogue there is excellent coherence.
