Anyone know if there is a replacement planned for the Panasonic DMP BDT500? The Panasonic BDT500 has been out for a few years and with the recent price drops I figure something must be in the works.

I hope they improve on the analog implementation. Marketing 32bit DACs doesn't qualify as being audiophile if not implemented properly. It will probably MRSP bbetween $250.00 and $350.00, so I know this limits what can be done with the analog implementation, but the DMP-BDT500 was a step back from some of the earlier models that supported 7.1 analog. I have the BDT-500, but because of the limitations I am limited on where I can set it up in my house.

It's about time the 500 gets replaced, but it will have to do a lot more than upscale to 4K to get me interested. And they're still keeping the crappy touchscreen remote. rolleyes.gif

Ugh...Have they kept the flip down front lid design too? I can't tell if it looks worse or better than the BDT500. And here I was thinking about picking up a cheap DMP-BDT360 or even a BD91 just to have updated Vierra Connect. They never released updated apps for the older blu-ray players and they are woefully out of date now. Amazon streaming app is from 2011 and is a bare minimum implementation. Does anyone know if this experience improves with the newer models?

Hi,

I have no information about the price in USA.

But in Europe the "MSRP" is 599 €.

Previously, the DMP-BDT500 was at launch (always in Europe) at 449 € .

Hopefully it'll play MKV with hidef audio in it.

Or, at least, be less finicky about what it will play when served by DLNA.

I also think it looks nice. I have a Pioneer receiver and was hoping by now they would have announced their new players. All I've seen in a replacement for the BDP-LX55. But that won't be out until after this summer. I hope the Panasonic is priced about the same as the player its replacing.

We picked up on the first details of the DMP-BDT700 in February, and Panasonic has now confirmed details and the design. The Blu-ray player supports 4K in up to 60 fps and can process a 4K signal from start to end without downscaling. Panasonic is not making it clear why this is necessary as current Blu-ray discs cannot store 4K content, but Panasonic says that it is possible to reproduce 4K photos from a camera in all their glory. Full HD Blu-ray discs will also be upscaled to 4K.

As far as I know, the DMP-BDT700 will not be released in America.

From what I can see now, the DMP-BDT700 with the new Uniphier chipset will only available in localized editions for France, Germany and United Kingdom which basically means: Europe only wink.gif

I think that's a censequence of prices dropping too fast on the American market because most American people are just looking for cheap low cost devices.

Also due to the contraction of the physical media market caused by faster than expected growth in streaming/downloads?

I don't think so because Panasonic has released entry level players (DMP-BD81/91, DMT-BDT360) with Mediatek chipsets for the American market, just the higher level DMP-BDT700 with the new Uniphier chipset will not be released in America.

It wouldn't be clever to develop a new device without releasing it to all available markets if there isn't an important reason.

If you cannot get back the manufacturing costs from specific markets because the customers in these markets won't pay your price, you will have to focus on other markets.

The "TRUE" flagship players from Panasonic and Sony are most likely not make it's way to the American market which doesn't make any freaking sense judging by what Sony said in statement last month, and I quote:

" Sony said it would register an impairment charge of 25bn yen (£145m) in its first-quarter results, "primarily due to demand for physical media contracting faster than anticipated, mainly in the European Union".

Mainly in Europe? So why these high end players like the Sony S7200 and the Panny 1700 are only being released in Europe if the market for Blu ray is contracting "mainly in Europe"?

Whatever Sony.....

LOL...

That's the result of the FED's "Quantitative easing". Sooner or later you won't get anything for the green toilet paper

Anyway, it doesn't matter because the DMP-BDT700 is not available in America so don't worry.

I would buy an OPPO for that price, plus we won't see it in the US

You're perfectly right concerning these awards... but as we have the choice in Europe... I bought the Pana 700...

Owning a European Pana 700, I can confirm that I made it DVDs codefree, with the same standard Panasonic procedure that can be found on the web.
