Wolfson Microelectronics announced that their WM8740 high performance stereo DAC will be used by Pioneer Electronics Australia in their Blu-ray home theatre disc player. The Blu-ray player from Pioneer Electronics Australia is available in two models - the BDP-LX71 in the EU/Japan and the BDP-05FD in North America.
Pioneer Electronics Australia have used their proprietary high-quality video feature, known as Pure Cinema, and four Wolfson Microelectronics’ WM8740 DACs to provide quality, high-definition sound for complete audio performance.
Wolfson Microelectronics’ WM8740 high performance 24-bit 192 kHz stereo DAC features SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) and ultra low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) to provide the ultra high fidelity audio experience. Pioneer Electronics Australia are of the view that the WM8740’s SNR feature can reproduce original sounds flawlessly.
