I recently contacted Denon Canada and asked if there were any plans to release a 4K UHD universal Blue-ray player and they replied that they did not see one on the roadmap. This is a great disappointment for me after just having purchased the new AVR X8500H. Without a modern and compatible Denon disc player (preferably audiophile grade) The Denon Link is a feature that ought not be boasted. In fact, I find it useless.

Looks like Pioneer is trying to fill the high-end universal player gap with the LX500, but at the ~$1k price point.

I understand wanting the latest/greatest, but if DVD-A/SACD is your thing, it seems an older high(er/ish)-end universal player and separate UHD player offers a MUCH better value proposition. Seems like a Denon 2930CI and an LG UP970 (or most other mid-range UHD players) could do everything you could need (Ranging from DVD-A/SACD/Denon-Link to UHD/HDR/Dolby Vision and even 3D) for like $300.

While not quite the same situation, I'm currently trying to decide if I want to replace my otherwise perfectly capable Samsung M8500 UHD player with one that still supports 3D, or just leave it in place and add an inexpensive older used 3D capable BD player to supplement it.

The first 20 seconds is telling; I interpret this as there is no player in the works at all

Denon AVR-X8500H // 7.2.6 [SVS Ultra + PB-13 Ultra with STA-1200D upgrades + Klipsch CDT-5800-C II]
LG OLED77CX // Panasonic DP-UB9000 // Sony BDP-S570 (for SACDs) // Apple TV 4K

And other than build quality, I'm not really sure what it offers over the UB820 except Analog outs.

I think I read that the UB9000 has the tone mapping for projectors, whereas the UB820 doesn't? So, there is that too.

Regarding the build quality. I admire this device every time I load a disk. Initially I debated the cost over those two features that I "don't need", but wow... after looking at it in my rack, I don't regret getting it over the 820 at all!

The 820 does have the same tone mapping features as the 9000.

Both the UB820 and the UB420 have the same tone mapping features as the UB9000

No.
The UB420 and UB820 do not have the
Tone Mapping function for projectors.
Only for LCDs and OLEDs.
Whereas the UB9000 has this function for projectors.

€: Welp, looks like those players do indeed have a projector setting (but to my defend: the 9000 still has one more setting for projectors ). On those players the projector option is combined with the Basic Luminance LCD setting. On the UB9000 Panasonic LCD and projector settings are seperated.

Incorrect. The 420 and 820 both have a projector setting that is 500 nits. The 9000 has an extra setting for projectors that is 350 nits.

I don't doubt that. The UB420 came with the same remote as my BDT110 from 2011! Luckily I don't use the stock remote on either.
