Marantz will introduce four new Blu-ray players this year, of which the BD5004 is the least expensive. This $550 player does not offer the universal disc playback found in the flagship UD9004, but it is a Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player, with...

Marantz BD5004 Blu-ray Disc Player with Network Capability

 

Had my 5004 BD for 2 years. joined with a 5004 AV receiver pushing 2 PSB T6's and 2 PSB T1's. No problems but unit is very slow to load.

Product Specifications

The BD5004 player brings the unique cosmetic look of today's Marantz to your system. The contoured front panel features both aluminum and reinforced resin for a smooth, distinguished appearance that's appropriate in any decor. And the panel's construction helps resist the destructive effects of unwanted vibration, too. Custom-engineered feet add a further barrier to vibration as well as a nicely finished look. The disc tray sits at the center of the chassis so it's protected on all sides from external influences. You'll appreciate its smooth action and gentle disc handling. And you'll be surprised at the variety of discs the BD5004 plays. Of course, you'll have complete access to any BD-Live content as soon as you connect this player to the net. That's because the BD5004 conforms to Blu-ray's advanced Profile 2.0 specification and has the increased memory needed to make your viewing experience everything it can be. Specifically, the BD5004 accepts Blu-ray Discs (both commercial releases and recordable), DVDs (movies and DVD-R/RWs), as well as standard and recordable CDs. And don't forget the SD and SDHC cards as well as their mini-and microSD cousins. As does the more costly BD7004, this player also handles disc-based DivX files in addition to AVCHD (high definition video format for camcorder) contained on discs or solid-state memory devices. The BD5004 also plays WMA, MP3, and JPEG files from either discs or SD cards. An HDMI v1.3a output brings high definition video and audio to your choice of other system components. That means you'll be able to enjoy Deep Color video as well as the most advanced Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks. Analog video connections include composite and component video, both fed from a 148.5MHz/12bit video digital-to-analog converter. An embedded video DSP engine tailors the signal for optimum reproduction. The BD5004 produces stunning 1920 x 1080 resolution at 24 frames per second for movie reproduction that rivals the best first-run theaters. The IR flasher input and output add system-wide control capability while an Ethernet port means you can update the BD5004's firmware to take full advantage of future developments.
