Panasonic DM UB 9000 anticipation thread
I received an email today as well. It would have been great if these were shipping next week since I’m off and would have had plenty of time to compare against my Pioneer LX500 as I’ll need to decide which one to keep.
I know the Panasonic will be better for PQ with HDR although not dramatically based on what I saw from the 820 I had for a short time but I’m disappointed in what I’ve read about the 2 channel analog.
The Pioneer is pretty good for two channel analog audio sitting between the Oppo 203 and 205 IMO but right now I’m only using it for video so if the Panasonic is better for two channel analog audio my decision would be easy. I’m not sure though if better PQ for HDR would be enough to keep the Panasonic over the Pioneer which is amazingly quiet and doesn’t even get remotely warm.
