”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 Great player Set up with Q Acoustics home cinema system. Amazing, just like being at the cinema. Picture quality is out of this world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant 4K Player with a Secret Bonus I have used the Panasonic 9000 4K Player for 3 months and find it is a stunning piece of kit. The player is very well engineered and built to last. The player plays 4K disks with a full range of HDR options - including Dolby Vision. I am watching the images on a 55inch LG 4K OLED screen - the images generated by the Panasonic player are both impressive and realistic - flesh colours are natural, reds and greens are not over saturated - it is easy to believe we are looking through a window onto the action. The sound (played through a Denon 7.1 amp) is clean and deep and genuinely 'immersive'. The secret bonus - this player upscales Blu Ray HD so well that good Blu Ray disks (not all are good - sometimes they are pressed from 2K master tapes!) are close enough to 4K to give virtually the same pleasure from a much bigger catalogue and at half the price. Whilst most 4K disks concentrate upon blockbusters, comics, missions impossible and dying hard for ever, the Blu Ray library is much larger and more interesting and this player makes the most of these disks. Simply brilliant and well worth spending that bit extra to purchase. PS I do not work for Panasonic :-).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a player I have had this player about a month now, the guys in Cambridge store were oresome, really helpful and gave me some great advice. I was looking at the 820, but this player is out on its own. And well worth the extra money. Also beats the Oppo 203 ion all round quality, sound and picture is fantastic with my Panasonic TX65FZ952B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning picture and build quality Bought to upgrade from an Arcam BD player to go with a new Panasonic 4K TV. Unit is reassuringly built, sturdy and good weight. Picture quality in 4K and upscaled 1080 and standard def content is fantastic.. The Guys at Richer Sounds in Reading were great, accommodating, kept open a little later for us and had great knowledge.. Would highly recommend both!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic audio and build quality Bought this to replace a very good, but temperamental, Arcam player which finally refused to play any more discs. I don’t (yet) have an HDR TV, but it is 4K and I’m very pleased with the picture given the limitations of my display. However the major factor me is the audio quality, which connected to my processor via the multi-channel analogue output is stunning. I thought my Arcam was good, but this knocks it out of the park. Even on some old DVDs my wife was stunned to hear bits of the soundtrack she’d never heard before, on films she knows like the back of her hand. The DVD video upscaling is also good. This is a super player and I look forward to making the most of its video capabilities when I can afford to replace my TV with a slightly bigger HDR model. It’s worth noting that I had a demo of this player alongside the Cambridge CXUHD since I wondered if it was worth £200 more. For me it was better sonically (over HDMI, no less) and (at least on the display in store) visually. If you can make use of the analogue audio capabilities of this, you won’t be disappointed, this machine is a no-brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent playback and audio. A great bit of kit! Solid build and quality components. So pleased to have bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely piece of kit Great piece of kit. However the technical specs are unclear. It does play DVD's and CD's so does support multi format disks. Easy to install and easy to operate.
