With the BDP-X300, technical progress shows its most pleasant side: In this universal disc player, both picture and sound benefit from technologies that were very expensive or unavailable only a short time ago.
The state-of-the-art video engine, for example, transforms conventional HD content from Blu-ray discs or the integrated video streamer into credible 4K UltraHD. The screencast standard Miracast, in conjunction with the integrated WiFi, brings new joy every day by beaming the screen content of a tablet onto the TV set with a tap. And if you occasionally want to listen to your player via the stereo system, you will appreciate the BDP-X300 again, because the player has a very high-quality converter section that can record it with pure CD players.
On compatible Pioneer receivers, the BDP-X300 with PQLS can play an even stronger trump card, which then only benefits sound transmission via the HDMI cable. This transfer is susceptible to jitter, i.e. fluctuations in the data clock that can result in distortions after conversion. Pioneer solves this problem in the BDP-X300: If the player plays together with a PQLS-compatible receiver, it takes over the timing of the audio data, which practically eliminates the jitter and results in a better focused, clearer sound.…more
