Aaron Waters, Product Marketing Manager - Audio & Video, Panasonic, told StereoNET:

The UB9000 is the benchmark in Blu-ray home entertainment for the discerning enthusiast. HDR10+ and Dolby Vision technology deliver outstanding picture quality, while THX® certification replicates the finely nuanced colours and rich, detailed images required to precisely reproduce the filmmaker's intentions. The UB9000 is highly engineered for unparalleled sound with a dedicated audio power supply and a vibration-reducing chassis.

According to Panasonic, the UB9000 is powered by a Hollywood Cinema Experience (HCX) Processor which was developed by specialists in the heart of Hollywood. It is said to “deliver stunningly precise colours and optimal brightness.”

Moreover, the player also boasts HDR adjustment technologies to deliver excellent detail across dark and bright scenes, maintaining fidelity regardless of the TV or viewing environment.

It also features a dedicated audio power supply, maintaining high-fidelity through its analog audio circuits, DAC and XLR balanced outputs. The UB9000 supports analogue 7.1 channel audio for direct connection to a home theatre system, and dual HDMI outputs for isolating and transmitting TV (4K video) and amplifier audio.

High-resolution audio reproduction has not been overlooked. In addition to conventional WAV/FLAC/MP3/AAC/WMA formats, DSD (11.2MHz/5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz) ALAC and AIFF music files can also be reproduced.

For the smart home early adopters, it offers hands-free operation and voice control with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It also includes native compatibility with Netflix, YouTube and Prime Video.

The Panasonic DP-UB9000 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player will be available in mid-November 2018 and will sell for $1,649 RRP.
