The Elite models feature exceptional construction, high quality video upscaling, precise audio reproduction, and advanced network capabilities. Both players set themselves apart from the competition in audio performance with their ability to redistribute processing power for audio only playback, shutting off all video circuitry when not in use.


Video

Both Elite Blu-ray players reproduce exceptional video quality by utilizing Pioneer’s new advanced video engine consisting of the Precise Pixel Driver image processor and Pioneer’s new 4K Reference Converter that upscale existing disc-based or network content to Ultra HD 4K resolution (4K/60P/4:4:4/24-bit) providing the finest picture quality possible when used with a compatible display. The upscaled video is output via HDMI 2.0 utilizing its full 18GBPS bandwidth.


Audio

To deliver reference quality audio, the BDP-85FD and BDP-88FD employ the ES9018 ESS SABRE reference DAC for the utmost audio quality output, capable of playing DVD Audio, SACD and the most popular high resolution audio files. The BDP-88FD takes things further by using all four of its integrated DACs in parallel to greatly reduce noise. Both players also feature a “Direct Function Circuit” for use in pure analog audio playback mode shutting off all video circuits and dedicating the processing power to the audio components. The BDP-88FD provides noticeably increased audio performance with its use of a large capacity power supply transformer, independent quartz for 44.1 kHz/48 kHz playback, Hi-Bit and Hi-Sampling processing, and a DAC filter.


Network

For convenience and plug-and-play capability right out of the box, both high-end players feature DLNA®, giving users the ability to quickly share audio and video content from a PC via the user’s home network. Both models can also work as a DMP/DMR (Digital Media Player/Digital Media Renderer) to push content directly from a portable source such as a compatible smartphone or tablet. The players were also designed to play high resolution music content from USB, disc, and hard drive devices. In addition, both models offer YouTube “Send to TV,” making it extremely easy to watch YouTube videos using paired devices.
