Pana­sonic DP-UB9000

Sound+Image - - TVs & Video -

Al­ready recog­nised by our col­leagues at EISA, through whom we en­joyed early ac­cess to this player, Pana­sonic’s high-spec­i­fi­ca­tion universal disc player has come to market at the per­fect time to ben­e­fit from Oppo’s end­ing pro­duc­tion of what have for many years been the ‘go-to’ high-end disc spin­ners. In comes Pana­sonic $1649 UB9000, sim­i­larly high-spec for video and for au­dio as well, with bal­anced out­put con­nec­tions, mul­ti­ple high-end DAC chan­nels op­er­at­ing at 32-bit/768kHz (play­ing WAV files up to 32/384kHz), iso­lated power sup­plies for ana­logue and dig­i­tal sec­tions, and a two-layer chas­sis us­ing thick steel plate and alu­minium for high rigid­ity... more like a high-end hi-fi au­dio player than your av­er­age Blu-ray player. For video it plays UHD Blu-rays with HDR10 and Dolby Vi­sion for High Dy­namic Range, in ad­di­tion to stan­dard Blu-rays, DVDs, CDs... and stream­ing on­line ser­vices as well. The UB9000 is now the 4K player to beat, and rep­re­sents a new ref­er­ence in disc spin­ning.
