Manufacturer's Description

The latest PureRead3+ technology (Origional Sound Reproduction) minimizes the data compensation process
PureRead is a unique function that minimizes the data compensation process by diagnosing the disc condition and adjusting the reading method, and attempting once again to reread obscured data to extract the original music when audio CD read errors occur. Such errors are caused by scratches or fingerprints on the disc surface and cannot be corrected by the CD-specific error correction system (CIRC). BDR-S07XLT features our latest technology called PureRead3+, which is an advanced version of PureRead. The new PureRead3+ algorithm starts up and once again attempts rereading when the initial rereading fails to extract the data. With increased reading accuracy combined with the BDXL compatible pick-up unit that enhances CD reading performance, audio CDs can be read with a high degree of accuracy.

Optimized loading and other actions with the new Video & Audio Mode
The included Pioneer Drive Utility enables the new Video & Audio Mode, which optimizes loading and Quiet Drive Mode settings when playing movie content (BD/DVDs) or music (CDs).
The new DiscStatus and DiscStatus functions
Along with various other new features, the new DiscStatus function allows you to check disc type and status while loading, while DriveStatus shows you the drive’s status.

Newly developed power saving mode
Peak Power Reducer, the newly developed power saving mode, cuts on-peak power consumption and maintains stable operation when the power supply is low.

Improved usability with the new utility software
In addition to the Video & Audio Mode, the new utility software also provides new functions that allow users to see the disc and drive status. The audio/video disc loading and Quiet Drive Mode settings can be managed by this included software. Now users can use the drive more easily and smoothly.

The optimal speed BD burning function ensures stable recording with any type of BD-R media
Optimal Write Speed (an auto writing speed selection function that prioritizes quality) checks various parameters of BD-R media and automatically selects the optimal writing speed for the media. This is useful when priority is given to recording accuracy and writing speed.

The Recording Surface Sensitive Mode improves the appearance of BD-R media
While maintaining high-accuracy writing performance, the Recording Surface Sensitive Mode minimizes the uneven appearance of the recording surface of the disc. This is a reliable function for burning discs for distribution.

DVD-R CLV Limit Mode
Limiting the recording method to CLV makes the DVD-R surface look even and maintains high-accuracy writing performance. It is a reliable function for when the DVD-Rs are to be distributed, and it is expected that they will be read by other players.

Optimal Recording Strategy Prediction Algorithm for unsupported media
BDR-S07XLT writes to unsupported BD recording media with a speed up to 4x by automatically predicting the optimal recording strategy. This algorithm reduces the occurrence of problems, such as not being able to record to purchased discs, and ensures reliable and stable recording.

12x high-speed writing balanced with high accuracy
BDR-S07XLT’s 12x high-speed writing on BD-R is the industry’s fastest standard. During high-speed writing, high accuracy is maintained even in the outer areas of the disc where accuracy tends to be reduced. Furthermore, BDR-S07XLT is the first BD drive with the BD-R Recording Surface Sensitive Mode (for SL/DL), which reduces uneven appearances on the recording surface of the disc while maintaining high accuracy. It is a reliable function for burning discs for distribution.
