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 UD9004 review


Expensive, for sure, but the Marantz UD9400 is one of the most talented universal players we've tested

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

Nothing, so long as you can afford it

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
