Panasonic DP-UB9000 Ultra HD Blu-ray player review: Here’s one manufacturer that’s not bailing on Blu-ray


Streaming offers instant gratification, but only a high-end Blu-ray player like this can reveal just incredible your 4K TV can look.

Impeccable image quality, with a plethora of customizable settings ; Meticulous build quality ; Supports every HDR format: HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Hybrid Log Gamma ; Full-featured backlit remote control

Panasonic’s engineers forgot to support SACD and DVD-Audio ; Some listeners might judge this Panny’s out-of-the box audio playback to be overly clinical ; A grand is a lot to pay for tehnology that's on the wane

This player delivers an awesome experience right out of the box, but it’s really designed for consumers who want to customize every setting until they get the best possible results when paired with the other gear in their unique environment. And if you...

Panasonic DP-UB9000 review: the best 4K Blu-ray player for cinephiles


The Panasonic DP-UB9000 is the 4K Blu-ray you need for the best picture quality possible

Unbeatable picture quality ; Battleship-like build ; Playback Info screen

Limited streaming app portal ; No Super Audio CD or DVD-A playback

The Panasonic DP-UB9000 offers stunning video and superlative build quality –this is as good as it gets when it comes to Blu-ray playback. It's the player all disc collections deserve, albeit at a high price. For an elite home cinema setup, this should...

Panasonic DP-UB9000 review: King of the Blu-ray players


With Oppo ditching Blu-ray players, the Panasonic UB9000 is the perfect high-end model. It's expensive but its picture and audio quality are flawless.

Flawless picture and sounds ; Superb 4K Ultra HD playback ; Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support ; Extensive processing features ; Well-designed remote ; Fantastic build quality

No SACD and DVD-Audio support ; Netflix app plays everything in Dolby Vision ; User interface feels dated ; It’s expensive

Panasonic’s flagship DP-UB9000 replaces the Oppo as the high-end player of choice, with a build quality, performance, and feature-set that goes a long way towards justifying its price tag.
