Introducing the UB-9000, Panasonic’s flagship 4K Blu-ray player. Building on their years of experience, the UB-9000 is ready to set new standards for video and audio quality in home cinema.
The UB-9000 sounds every bit as good as it looks. Whether you’re looking for the digital processing power to handle your high-resolution audio files (from WAV to ALAC, or your favourite DSD format), or want the kind of analogue excellence that you only get with a balanced XLR output, the UB-9000 does it all with ease. Designed with discrete power supply for the analogue stage, the UB-9000 is a finely crafted audio device on every level. Add in the carefully-selected audio components and the rock-solid build quality, and you’re in for a crystal-clear listening experience free of distracting noise.
Panasonic’s unique HCX Processor for Ultra HD offers stunning picture quality, with crisp images and precise colours that will reveal new levels of detail for a truly astounding viewing experience. The UB-9000’s Chroma Processing works in concert with the latest HDR formats to bring every scene to life with breathtaking colour and rich, complex shading that makes even the most fantastical images look shockingly real. The end result is a THX-certified image that has all the nuance and colour of a cinema, but in the convenience of your own lounge room. It even brings new dimension to your old favourites, with its impressive upscaling and HDR optimiser turning standard Blu-rays into showpieces of precision and clarity.
