”A seriously capable machine for home cinema enthusiasts.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

Reference quality sound through attention to detail

The highest quality sound begins at base – and the DP-UB9000’s base is as well made as they come. The newly developed drive base with its thick, steel plate fixes the drive to the centre of a double layer chassis. Added to this are aluminium front and side panels. The heavy and rigid construction minimises vibrations, letting the electronics work to their optimum ability for the highest quality sound and vision.

THX certified
THX certified, the DP-UB9000 meets the most rigorous standards. Founded by George Lucas of Star Wars fame, meeting THX standards is a guarantee of the richest, most life-like images and powerful, room-filling sound potential.

XLR balanced outputs for the highest quality sound
Fitted with professional style XLR balanced outputs, the DP-UB9000 offers the best audio connection available. Balanced cables minimise interference, meaning even the tiniest fragments of music get through for the fullest detail. They also work far better over longer lengths than standard, unbalanced cables.

HCX - Hollywood Cinema Experience
At the heart of this player is Panasonic’s unique HCX (Hollywood Cinema Experience) processor. Years of picture expertise and collaboration with Hollywood studios go into making this processor something very special. For vibrant colour and ‘being there’ realism, little can get close to this processor’s power.

4K High-Precision Chroma Processor for stunning colour
Also developed from technology derived from Panasonic's Hollywood Laboratory, the DP-UB9000's 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor gets closer to the natural image than ever. 4K image colour signals (4:2:0) are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by a multi-tap chroma process. The result is stunning depth, texture and the greatest realism you're ever likely to see on the small screen.

Multi HDR Support – including HDR10+
Taking HDR technology to new highs, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. This Panasonic UHD Blu-ray also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, the DPUB9000 is also compatible (via software update) with Dolby Vision. This Panasonic decodes signals encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

HDR Optimiser
Going further than HDR, this Panasonic UHD Blu-ray player uses image processing with tone mapping to enhance brightness levels. The system even works with standard HDR10 and TV images that don’t support HDR10+ or Dolby Vision.

Voice Assistant – Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa compatible
Voice Assistant means you simply have to speak into the controller to bring up content and search results. Now featuring Google Home and Amazon Alexa (via firmware update), Voice Assistant is more powerful than ever. Google Home integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your UHD Blu-ray an even greater source of entertainment.

Hi-Res audio for a boost to your music
As well as being a cinematic star with your movies, the DP-UB9000 also works wonders with your music. Simply connect to your audio system and you’ll be able to enjoy Hi-Res music via streaming or USB. Compatible with a wide range of formats, including AIFF (up to 32 bit/384kHz 2 channel), WAV (up to 32 bit/384kHz), FLAC (up to 24 bit/192kHz) and DSD (up to 11.2MHz in 2 channel), the Panasonic DP-UB9000 is a supremely flexible music player.

Fully connected, including twin HDMI outputs
With twin HDMI sockets you get excellent connectivity. The second HDMI lets you run an audio source in another room. Another bonus with this Panasonic is the analogue 7.1 RCA output. This lets you connect to older but high-end AV receivers that may not have an HDMI interface. Other great connections include twin USB sockets (front and rear) – ideal for connecting your USB stocks and watching digital content.

4K streaming
Although UHD Blu-ray disc has the performance advantage, 4K streaming gives you a huge range of extra content, including award-winning TV drama. Compatible with the top streaming services from the likes of Netflix and Amazon (coming soon via software update), you’ll never be short of entertainment – and all in top quality 4K.

Smart services including apps and web browser
As a smart player, the Panasonic DP-UB9000 is equipped with a full web browser and apps. Access your favourite catch-up TV services via their app or simply use the web browser to find specific websites.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best. The Panasonic DP-UB9000 provides ultimate sound and vision for an electrifying performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product Justifying the Price I purchased my Panasonic 9000 as part of a 4K upgrade to my 3.1 AV system, paired with a Denon 2700, LG OLED 48CX TV and Monitor Audio Silvers. Due to limited space, my combined system has to provide high quality AV and stereo audio. My new disc spinner had to replace both a basic Sony BD player and my Marantz 6006 CD player. I also wanted (and could afford to pay for) two separate industry-leading BD upscaling capabilities, as I have around 400 BD HD discs and also still have around 200 SD DVDs. Regarding upscaling, it will be years before TV broadcasts and streaming services have substantial 4K content. In the interim, your 4K TV and/or your 4K BD player will have to “invent” 75% of the image when viewing HD content and 89% of the image on SD content, which I can tell you, as a professional photographer, is major challenge. In practice, the Panasonic 9000 is built and performs exceptionally well, justifying its price tag. The stereo analogue sound output matches that of the old Marantz CD6006, using dedicated stereo DAC and circuitry, with a full-range of DAC variables accessible via the set-up menus. It also has a true USB 3.0 socket on the rear for accessing my music library on a single 500GB SSD. The BD performance and upscaling are excellent. I can now choose between using the LG TV’s own excellent upscaling and HDR capabilities and/or using those of the Panasonic. In brief, my experience matches that of the many exhaustive 5-star reviews available on-line from professional AV and hi-fi reviewers. As an aside, as the 9000 is a partially mechanical device (potentially more prone to issues than purely electronic ones), I also purchased Richer Sounds’ 6-year warranty, to protect my large investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate playback I wanted to replace my old Blu-ray player and get something a bit more up-market but I hesitated at the cost. I took the plunge as Richer Sounds price-matched it. I thought it would be good...it’s fantastic! Excellent build quality, easy operation and flawless reproduction, both sound and video. I enjoy the whole experience of watching a film in a different way! The high price was worth it.
