With the Panasonic DP-UB9000EB1, you get to see the sound and vision just as the director intended.

Reference quality sound through attention to detail
The highest quality sound begins at base – and the DP-UB9000EB1’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-UB9000EB1 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-UB9000EB1 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-UB9000EB1'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 DPUB9000EB1 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-UB9000EB1 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-UB9000EB1 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-UB9000EB1 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-UB9000EB1 provides ultimate sound and vision for an electrifying performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture. Great Sound. It's built like a Tank I have owned this Fabulous machine for several months now. I am writing a second review as I forgot to mention on my first review what a cracking CD Player it is. This compares to, maybe even excedes my previous CD Player which was a Marantz KI Signature model. This machine has played everything I have thrown at it. Yep it's Region 2 or B as they are also known. It can be a little slow to load some Blurays and Ultra HD's The Chassis is top quality. I do not stream as my location means the 'Net is a little slow. Worth every Penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture. Great Sound. Built like a Tank. Just took delivery of this machine a few hours ago. I did some redearch before hand on Youtube. There are a few Vids/Tips on set up to be found, following the advice set up was pretty straight forward. First impressions? It's built like a Tank. Second impressions? Picture and Audio are top notch. On this model EB1 the playback niggle has been sorted. It restarts where you left off. But, Only if the Media Supports the Function. The DVD's I have tried have not been a Problem. Only a few 4K films in and those have supported the restart function. I have a small Bluray collection and tried a few and they have Restarted no problem. Yes the Disc Recess in the loading tray is shallow. Handle with care. The cost of 4K software demands it? Through settings there are a multitude of options, seeking advice is a must. A Big Thanks to the Staff at Prestwich Branch for Sales and Tech support over the phone. Warranty set up with Panasonic slightly complicated. VIP Club Member I get 6 Years anyway. This isn't the most expensive playback machine I have owned, but it may just be the Best. Time will tell. Very Happy with my Purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wow, worth the price:) After A LOT of research finally bought this beast. The weight alone was shocking let alone the increase in quality of my 4k discs, my PS5 4K player looked good, but this just polishes the picture. Now my Samsung 75 TV just shows itself off ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gritty analog out if that matters to you. Here I'll be comparing Panasonic DPUB9000 with Oppo UDB-203 which I had and Sony UBPX800M2 which I am having now. My subjective findings. Panasonic is the best player on the current market as to the picture and build quality. The BD drive is superbly manufactured like a vault with silky smooth and quiet operation like the rest of the player. Picture colors are vibrant with all the latest BD standard specs. Stereo CD playback via XLR balanced and RCA unbalanced outputs is sore and gritty, USB and streaming not so much. Sony 800M2 is the way to go if you want your player to provide good stereo audio no doubt about it with better dynamics, pleasant top / mids and slamming bass. I cannot say colors are visibly better compared to Sony 800M2 as my Sony TV is not HDR+10 compatible and manual switching HDR / Dolby Vision is not an issue for my on my Sony player. If Panasonic sounded like Sony on stereo / CD playback, it would be No. 1 player hands down and without any current competition. Neither Panasonic nor Sony has the player matching Oppo 203 / 205 picture and audiophile stereo. Why Oppo pulled its BD players off the market is beyond me. Make your limited choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good so far I bought this having read the reviews and recently bought a 4k tv, so wanted a 4k uhd player. I don't have any 4k bluray disks yet, so can't comment on this. Normal Blurays and DVDs have a good picture and sound (although not massively better than my existing player for the price). One disappointment was it was unable to read one of my DVDs (even though my existing player was able to). I am unlikely to use other features such as streaming as the TV will do that. I tried using google through the player and onto the screen, but was painfully slow and crashed/froze. So was disapponted i can't use my tv as a monitor for the internet. This probably seems like a bit of a negative review. Don't get me wrong it IS a great player. The service from Richer Sounds has been fantastic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful 4K bluray Player One of the best purchases I have ever made for my home theater. The DP-UB9000 is such a quality made player, with absolutely stunning audio and video quality to match, highly recommended for any home theater Enthusiast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far very pleased, but only had it about a month So far very pleased with the quality, but as I say have only had it about a month. It was very easy to set up on my Panasonic plasma TV. The only negative comments are that the disc recess is not very deep so that you have to make certain that the disc is actually sitting in it properly and in comparison to other models that I have had the tray is very flimsy.
