Panasonic DMP-UB900 thread.

If this player is anything like my DMP-BDT700.....then it will be a winner!

The BDT700 is an OVER-AChiever! Excellent video performance AND excellent stereo!

Cant wait for the UB900.

(C'mon OPPO....was' happenin'?.......

Owned a BDT500 which I loved, so I am hoping the same. Subbing so I can keep up with a release on this model.

FYI on Oppo, I think they are waiting on the mid year MediaTek UHD chip.

I sure hope this Panny makes it before mid year...

Wonder why the Samsung UHD player is getting all the chatter and not this one. I like what I'm seeing here but I bet it'll go for more than $400USD.

Because it won't be available in the US or it may but much later and likely cost twice or more than twice the Samsung

That's the thing. No release date, appears to be pricey, and they did not even bring the 700 here. I'll honestly believe it when I see it.

I do think it would be a great player though.

Certainly not a lot of info available on this player. No question that it will be more expensive based on some of the audiophile features. I believe I did see a picture of the back of this proposed player and it had 2-channel balanced analog outputs. Probably no big deal but since my current system utilizes balance connections thru-out and would be a plus for me. I don't mind waiting but I did want to see what 3D looks like since they didn't have 3D when I bought my last & still current blu ray player.

I would prefer the Panny to the Sammy, as I have had good luck with their players in the past.
However, anything over $400 is too much IMO.


If anyone can recall, the first Samsung BD player was pretty buggy and slow.

Yep. Lasted a day and got traded out for a BD10 that is still running strong at my daughter's apartment.

I would rather get the Panny as well especially with the higher audio resolution features it offers but I can't see paying much more than 2 or 3 hundred more for it. I already have a pretty good source player for music that also plays m/c SACD and DVD-A and especially excels with 2/channel music so I really don't need the Panny. Still holding off on a 4k player even though I want to be able to watch 3D since my player is not 3D capable.

Panasonic Canada website shows this device as 'Coming Fall 2016'.


This makes me happy but sad at the same time. Waiting is hard...

Anyone see any evidence of a US release date?

Integrating an LSI chipset update UniPhier inaugurated by the BDT700 DMP-then the DMP-BDT570 recent, the Ultra HD Blu-ray player Panasonic DMP-UB900 has much in common with its two predecessor. Besides the management of BD Profile 6.0 and reading Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVDs and audio CDs, video processing UB900 is the architecture around a 4K High CPU Precision Chroma with a 4K scaler Direct Chroma for scaling DVD and Blu-ray in 2160p Ultra HD, and 4K Chroma Up to 4K content upsampler chroma 4: 4: 4.

Several post-processing filters are integrated with a Sharpness on two axes of improvements filters outlines and noise reducers. In the audio section, the deck is equipped with five 192kHz / 32-bit and equipped with a new audio card electrolytic capacitors to stabilize the power supply, a capacitor and Mica LAN Common Mode Filter to avoid any disturbance of the signal other devices. We find many of audio processing modes such as 96 kHz Re-master, Digital Tube Sound, etc. Connectivity, it has 2 HDMI 2.0a outputs that will separate the audio and video streams, Panasonic also stipulates adding a clock to reduce jitter, and an analog output 7.1.
Looks like April for France.

I am also anxious to watch 3D for the first time since my last TV and my Denon A1UDCI BD player is over 8 years old before Smart and 3D came along.

I'll probably get this one for the living room when it comes out and move the Samsung to the bedroom.
