    Here's some very good Panasonic news....

    Panasonic will be launching the highly anticipated ultra high end BD/CD/Hi Res audio player in the USA this October. They wanted hit a price point that would be compelling for the enthusiasts to be happy with and to attract new clients to the world of high-end streaming and disc playback. To that end we came up with a launch price of $999.

    Equipped with stereo XLR balanced audio outputs and 7.1 RCA audio and digital audio outs.

    Our dedicated UB9000 web page has more information.

    Now for some more good news... by this Wednesday, July 11th my UB9000 engineering production sample will arrive! Hope to see many AudioKarma members and visitors at our showroom to audition Panasonic's new flagship UB9000 BD player.

    Very nice back-lit remote control.

    The UB9000 has exceptional build quality.

    Here's a pic of the HDMI set-up mens for the HDMI output that is marked for "audio only". As you can see it's configurable to your system's needs.

    Here's a few more pic from various user menus. This new advanced technology BD player/streamer is very technical and is best purchased from a speciality dealer who can support all of the advanced features so the enthusiast user gets all of the value and benefit this player can deliver when set-up properly for each a/v system.

    They build a $1000 disc/hi-res streaming machine... And put a fan in it? Really?

    Does it support Dolby Vision 4K?

    I believe all BD players have fans, and this one has two power supplies, one dedicated for the audio circuitry and one for the video section.

    Yes, the UB820 and UB9000 are Dolby Vision HDR players, but the firmware upgrade is expected in October so the UB9000 will likely launch with DV HDR.
