Latest 4K UHD Technology

published

This is a new 4K Ultra High Definition Blu Ray player that became available a few months ago. I waited for a 20% discount before I bought one for $688 in October 2016.

This machine has a fast processor that enables it to start up quickly and load a disc very quickly. Picture quality is excellent on my Sony 55 inch 4K UHD HDR TV. Sound quality is very good as it is linked to my Yamaha 5.1 AV slim-line series receiver with full sized Bowers and Wilkins 600 series speakers (3 way flood-standing speakers, 2 way rear speakers on stands, a centre speaker and a sub-woofer).

A fast speed HDMI cable is included in the box. The price will probably fall over the next few months, as Sony will soon have new 4K UHD players in the market.

I have been using an Oppo 103 player for some years. Before I purchased my Panasonic 4K OLED TV I had a regular HD screen and I found the Oppo excellent for improving video from the PVR so it looked great on the 1080 screen. However I find I can't do that with the Panasonic DMP-ub9000 as it doesn't have an HDMI input. The reason I want to keep watching the PVR this way is because I think the blu ray player likely has better quality upscaling than the TV itself. Any ideas appreciated!

What type of 'improvement' are you wanting to get? If it's resolution based, your Panasonic 4k TV will do the upscaling from the PVR for you (and it'll do a reasonable job). Don't know why you'd want it to run through a BD player. If your PVR has a network stream capability you could link it into the same network as the DMP-UP900 and then use the network browser on the Pana to play the files. That way you get some of the picture and audio control adjustments.

Thanks for your quick answer. I have been told by the supplier of the Pana OLED that IF I want the best picture then I really should have a top quality upscaling 4K player rather than rely on the TV's upscaling. This also would allow me to process sound as well (the present HD Oppo is linked to a good sound system). I have thought about whether the PVR can link to a blu ray player over the network (it certainly is part of my network) but I will have to seek tech support on that.

I suppose I'm influenced by reviews like: "Of course you can also access Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube through the UB9000 with the additional benefit of being able to use the HDR Optimiser feature on streaming content as well, which again makes a tangible difference to the viewing experience." The output from my PVR is essentially 'streaming content' as far as the UB9000 is concerned. Other reviews say the UB9000 produced a more detaied screen image than the (other brand) television's native upscaling.
