  1. Pioneer BDP-LX 08
  2. Data sheet

The “Precision Quartz Lock System” to improve the two-channel PCM playback via HDMI – fix exactly the HDMI clock problems. A matching Blu-ray player who understands PQLS, is the Pioneer BDP-LX_71 (AUDIO 9/08). Or the equivalent, but much adorn and available only in Europe BDP LX_08. As Chiseled from an exotic monoliths, the LX-08 fits perfectly into the receiver design; Yes, he even resembles a part of it.

Now so hastily receiver and player via HDMI wired two Set-Up menus “CEC” and “PQLS” enabled, and away go the controlled audio traffic. And indeed: the CD sound without the reassuring glow-in-two displays PQLS was still something FAB and limited in the heights, with the clock control suddenly opened a wider stage, echoed voices and Hi-hats longer, more details when the handset came. The PQLS variant amazingly resembled the analog output; yet she seemed almost a little bit more to reveal the music to give a touch more life.
