Marantz UD8004


Universal media players are a great addition to any home theater system especially when there is limited space. It is the one solution for keeping past and present technologies wrapped in a single device that may not look compact, but is far better...

The Marantz UD8004 Blu-ray Player successfully carries some nice features present in Marantz’s flagship model. The price is a lot less at $2,300 and adds some nice universal features that the BD7004 lacks. Those that do not have a Blu-ray player or...

Marantz UD8004 - £2,450


Marantz plugs the yawning gap that exists between high-resolution audio and video sources. Alvin Gold may have found 'the one'

Sophisticated and a highly capable player that just about does it all

Some noise from the fan and takes a while to identify certain disc types

A new style of player, for a new type of system with a broader range of capabilities

Marantz UD8004 review


Until 3D-ready Blu-ray players hit the UK, this incredible player is as good as it gets at this lofty price-point

Exceptional picture quality ; fabulous sound ; extensive spec ; build and styling

Hardly cheap ; next-gen players will be 3D-compatible – and this isn't

A brilliant player – if you want one box to do it all, it’s as close as we’ve heard, short of the even pricier UD9004
