Marantz UD9004 Universal Blu-ray Player

 

When I hear the name Marantz, the first thing that comes to mind for me is music. From the 1950?s when Saul Marantz introduced the company?s first preamplifier, Marantz has been creating products which help people enjoy music in their lives. Today they...

Overall, the UD9004 is an amazing universal disc player. The player handled every disc I threw at it with ease. The video quality was excellent. The UD9004 analog audio performance made me want to listen to every disc in my collection all over again....

Apparently putting out high end, over the top priced universal Blu-ray players is contagious. Denon, Lexicon, and now Marantz. One thing is for sure, however: The Marantz player is all original... at

If you are a consumer looking for advice on whether or not you should buy this player - well, you're probably from the future where people have moved on to true 3D and holodecks and you're one of those "only old tech is good, the new stuff sucks" guys....

The Marantz UD 9004 Blu-ray player replaces the Denon DVD-A1 UD as the most expensive player we've ever reviewed.

Outstanding Blu-ray picture quality ; Sensational sound (even via the analogue audio outputs) ; Excellent build-quality ; High-quality DVD up-scaling ; Good drive mechanism

High price ; Slow loading and navigation

Marantz's new flagship player, the UD9004 ($6,000), is a universal disc player that supports Blu-ray, SACD, DVD-Audio, and HDCD playback. This player is designed for the audiophile who wants to replace outdated source components with a well-crafted...

From using the Marantz UD9004 it is clear that the designers placed a premium on audio performance. A discussion with Kevin Zarow confirmed this priority. However there is one design choice that leaned a little too far towards the audio balance, the...

The Marantz UD9004 can excel at all it does. I am not aware of another universal disc player that can match its performance on all formats at any price. Is it twelve times better than the Oppo BDP-83 for twelve times the price? Not for most consumers...

Marantz's 2009 Blu-ray lineup includes four new models: two lower-priced players (the BD5004 and BD7004) and two high-end, reference models (the BD8004 and UD9004). The top-of-the-line UD9004 is a universal disc player that, in addition to Blu-ray,...

Many consumers are seeking to bring more powerful equipment so they can enjoy a home theater experience without going out just to enjoy their movies on the big screen. DVD technologies sought to accomplish this, but as the TV screens started to become...

The best Blu-ray all-rounder yet, although the price means it's only for the fortunate few. Still, let's hope this is a pathfinder for cheaper but equally flexible players to follow

Fabulous picture and home cinema sound; genuinely musical, high-end stereo sound; strong spec; superlative build

Nothing, so long as you can afford it
