Default Panasonic DP-UB9000 4K UHD Player

Just seen this beast of a player being noted for second half of 2018.



DP-UB9000 supports HDR10+, Dolby Vision HDR, Alexa and Google Assistant voice control (via a future software update), and 7.1 channel audio."

The emphasis will be on audio performance, with the DP-UB9000 having a dedicated audio power supply, a 'high-performance' DAC and an XLR balanced output.

Housed in new vibration-reducing casework, a thick steel plate fixes the optical disc drive to the chassis to reduce noise during disc rotation.

It also features the latest HCX (Hollywood Cinema Experience) processor and 4K upscaling and HDR optimisation technology that form part of the 2018 range.

Pricing is yet to be confirmed, and the DP-UB9000 is not expected to go on sale in the UK until the second half of 2018.

Only slightly, aside from a partial view with drive, and analog CCA exposed, Panasonic is not showing the construction as usual. Has a fan, no digital inputs. Since it being introduced in Europe I see this as taking advantage to Cambridge Audio dropping analog outputs from their CXUHD player with balanced XLR outputs added comparably.

This is the image with the partial inside view from the rear.

Bloody hell, I paid 550 for the 900 when it first came out and it was vastly overpriced, but the same amount of money for that monster would be well worth the outlay.

It will rather cost 990 Pounds or Euros, I reckon.

You can look here for more info and a video (no audio)

Price & availability:
The high-quality design and the selection of technical components make it clear, this is not a 0820-player. Panasonic deliberately uses the term 'Reference' and would thus probably in the league of oppo & co. The price will be correspondingly higher.

It's a French site, right in my alley. If Sony and LG can come up with quality build players like Oppo and that Panasonic new Dolby Vision player, that'll be the day.

* 7.5 kilos ... it gots some heft to it...good.

The author made a really odd comment.

Of course, in order to truly isolate the channels, you need independent outputs, and the UB9000 has an HDMI output for each, meaning you get a totally uncluttered signal.
So your pitching the pair of HDMI outputs as superior to a single HDMI output (video/audio)? LOL

He must be new to the world of audio/ video. His wording needs improving.
He's not alone.

Oppo's own website is a thing of beauty and with a clear description of its features...the 205...and it is well represented:
https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-...5-Reviews.aspx
___

The new Panasonic 9000...my guess for USD retail price: $999 ($899 @ best).

I like Panasonic products and some of my family members still own a 8 year old 2010 Panasonic Blu-ray player. However if this player does not play SACD's and DVD-Audio discs. Then that is a deal breaker for me.

This mimics the DMP-UB900 specs except newer DAC supporting 11.2 Mhz less the SD reader slot I can't see in the previous video posted by LOTR

Assuming it comes to NA, srp/street pricing could be anywhere from $999 to $1299 says my gut. With the XLR outputs, audio transformer and top end DAC they will be pricing comparable to Oppo 205.

Too bad they didn't add an HDMI HDR10 input.

The great thing with these 2018 Panasonic 4K players will be the in-player tone-mapping (named HDR Optimizer).

As for this player, I believe it is being pitched at the audiophile end of the market. It will likely sit between the Oppo 203 and 205 price wise.

Good to see Panasonic doing a high-end player. I might be tempted to buy this beast.
