I wonder if the face design will stay similar or if it's time for a change moving forward

Don't think, they change face.
No point at all.

I always wonder when they pull the trigger for a design change when and how they make the decision. I like my components matching as they visible from my mlp. Nice and clean. I got rid of a nicer amp imo to match my gear. OCD I know

Hi all,

My UD5007 has developed a strange problem over time -

I have CD/BD/DVD/DVD-Audio/SACD and Hybrid SACD discs which all work except for the latter. Over time the hybrid-SACD discs would take a few insert attempts to detect the SACD layer rather than enter CD mode only. I realise I can change the disc layer but this only works once multiple layers are detected.

Strangely though SACD-only discs work but now literally no Hybrids work - so I can tell the SACD pickup/laser do work but there's an issue with focusing to that layer in the Hybrid scenario.

Painfully no repair shops have any suggestions and this afternoon I pulled the unit apart to clean the lens and blow dust out of the chassis but to no avail.

Does anyone have any suggestions or similar experience ? I'm hanging out for an UltraHD universal player to replace this in any case so it's no disaster !

Thanks,

Matt Hermans

My suggestion would have been to clean it, but you've already done that.

Are you aware that the Oppo 203 is already available?

Yeah I've eyed the Oppo. I'm going to wait for the Sony Universal player and evaluate things then. It may not be worth getting the UD5007 fixed at this point; it's still 90% functional after all.

Cheers,

I have just noticed that Marantz has revamped there product line-up and it seems that they no longer make a blue-ray/UD player. They only have CD and SACCD players now.

No.My guess was wrong. Marantz has announced no new DVD players of any type. There are none on Marantz's product page.

There was an erroneous PR listing 4 players, all of which were discontinued years ago

The UD8004 is a discontinued product from 2009. The 7007 has also been discontinued. Marantz has not announced any upcoming BD player or UHD player.

Question UD 5007 and youtube streaming

It looks like my Marantz blu ray player will no longer support youtube streaming. Does anyone know when this might be fixed? Thanks, Jim

Never. YouTube dropped support for all older Blu-ray players.

Hi all.

So this year I plan to get the kids an X Box 360S. I have absolutely zero experience with one but I am thinking of replacing the Marantz 5007 with it to save room, etc...

Any comments pro or con to doing this?

Cheers.

Jerry

Does anyone knows if this Universal player plays SACD-R?

The previous one UD5005 did.

Thanks!


EDIT: it does plays SACD-R and DVD-A backups as well.

Is there anyway to play MKV files with this Universal player? Won’t fit on a FAT 32 USB, since they all are above 4GB in size. Can you stream them? With which server?

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
