Sometime in Spring or Summer, I'm looking to buy a 4K Blu-ray player that has Dolby Vision support and want to spend no more than $300, $500 is the maximum limit overall. I was eyeing on the LG UBK90 but I don't like how the HDMI-CEC system works with LG players & because of that I'm getting a non-LG Blu-ray player for the first time ever. Which should I do and why?
Get the Sony UBP-X700 (although I heard the HDR settings is a bit complex), Philips BD7502, Panasonic UB820, or just wait & see what 2019 brings to the table? I see Sony is bringing out the UBP-X800 successor finally with Dolby Vision support, Panasonic is bringing out a budget DV player sometime this year, hopefully not a Europe-only release.
PS, it's replacing my first ever UHD player that I got from Best Buy Black Friday 2017 the LG UP875, pretty decent budget player if you don't need DV nor any apps like Netflix for example.
My current mancave room setup:
Vizio V436-G1 4K HDR TV | LG UBK90 4K Blu-ray player | Denon AVR-S740H AV Receiver (running 5.1.2 Atmos/DTS:X) | Xbox One X | Amazon Fire Stick 4K
