Panasonic DP-UB9000 Region Free Blu-Ray Player

Original price was: $2,588.00.Current price is: $2,298.00. inc GST


The Panasonic DP-UB9000 Region Free Blu-Ray Player is the company’s latest flagship 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player and, after Oppo started winding down its competing devices, the new model finds itself in a fortuitous position.

The absence of Oppo has created a gap at the high-end player market, one that the Panasonic is perfectly suited to fill.

That said, beautifully made and enviably specified, Pana’s flagship 4K disc spinner is unashamedly premium. The plastic and tin build, familiar on mainstream Blu-ray players, has been replaced with heavy metal and luxe design. This deck doesn’t just play Blu-ray discs, it cossets them. Beyond its good looks, however, the DP-UB9000 is also the first UHD deck from Panasonic to support all key HDR flavours: vanilla HDR10, its dynamic sibling HDR10+, HLG and Dolby Vision. The latter is included, despite the fact that Panasonic isn’t supporting Dolby Vision on any of its 4K TVs.

*Please note sometimes there will be a slight delay in shipping if the player needs to be modified*

free up region restriction

It would have been better if after freeing up the region restriction, there is no need to further select the region according the region code on the disc.

Fantastic product, fantastic service

This is probably the best 4K blu ray player on the market right now. It’s costly for sure, but if you are a cinema geek or film nerd and have the money to spend - this will be the player for you. The HDR optimiser feature is a huge bonus. It also Seems to match well with the Panasonic 4K oleds on the market, where both the player and the tvs are geared towards presenting an image that is authentic to the creators vision and intent. Great service as well from Rapallo as well. Communication was excellent, where I had an extremely prompt response to a question I had about the sale.

Great Equipment

I needed to replace my DVD player. I insist on region free equipment both for DVD and BluRay and am prepared to pay a lttle extra. Rapallo - once again - had the gear. The ordering and purchase went well. Communication was very good. There was a delay in delivery - some parts required for modification had to come in fom overseas. I was kept informed as to progress. Thanks Deano, Bensan and Simon. I hope to have many years of use of the product but will be back to Rapallo for any future requirements

Dynamic Range
The player’s output dynamic range can be manually adjusted (dynamic conversion adjustment) according to the brightness capacity of your TV. Optimum HDR Processing With more and more HDR content available on disc and via streaming services, the optimal reproduction of HDR content has become essential.

 

HDR
In addition to having a wide range of contrast, images from Ultra HD Blu-ray players must be reproduced with fine detail in both dark and bright areas. To achieve this, the new players use Panasonic’s three unique HDR processing technologies.

The UB9000 features a new HDR adjustment control, which reproduces dark and bright areas with high fidelity regardless of the viewing environment. Dark scenes in HDR images are sometimes difficult to see when viewed in a bright room and may require brightness adjustment. Because HDR signals are inherently different from SDR signals, existing adjustment functions are insufficient.

 

Dynamic Range conversion
The UB9000 series use an original technology to optimise HDR video signals, which enables them to freely adjust the brightness of the HDR images. An HDR Setting button on the remote control allows the user to simply select the optimal setting for the viewing environment.HDR to SDR conversion (Optimised Tone Remapping for SDR-TV)

Optimum HDR Processing
With more and more HDR content available on disc and via streaming services, the optimal reproduction of HDR content has become essential. In addition to having a wide range of contrast, images from Ultra HD Blu-ray players must be reproduced with fine detail in both dark and bright areas. To achieve this, the new players use Panasonic’s three unique HDR processing technologies.

 

HDR Optimiser***
HDR-compatible TVs use tone-mapping to match the brightness range of images according to the static metadata within the content, but optimal results are sometimes not possible due to the limitations of the specific TV model. By conducting the tone-mapping on the player, stable HDR picture quality is delivered regardless of the TV. Panasonic’s original image processing technologies achieve HDR images with higher definition while tone-mapping is used to adjust the brightness level of the content. Even HDR images from ordinary HDR10 and TV footage provide optimal playback.

 

HDR Adjustment for various viewing conditions
All 2018 models have an HDR adjustment feature which reproduces dark and bright areas with high fidelity regardless of the viewing environment. Dark scenes in HDR images are sometimes difficult to see when viewed in a bright room and may require brightness adjustment. Because HDR signals are inherently different from SDR signals, existing adjustment functions are insufficient. The UB9000, UB820 and UB320 series use an original technology to optimise HDR video signals, which enables them to freely adjust the brightness of the HDR images. An HDR Setting button on the remote control allows the user to simply select the optimal setting for the viewing environment.

 

HDR to SDR conversion (Optimised Tone Remapping for SDR-TV)

UB9000 Reference Quality Sound: Unique audio technologies achieve rich sound reproduction  Chassis with High Rigidity and Center Position of the Disc Drive

 

Newly-Developed Drive Base and Centre Mechanism
A newly-developed drive base with a 3-dimensional, thick steel plate fixes the optical disc drive to the centre of the 2-layer chassis to reduce vibration and noise during disc rotation.

 

2-Layer Chassis
The use of a 2-layer structure with a heavy steel plate for the chassis achieves a low centre of gravity and low vibration.

 

Aluminium Front and Side Panels
Thick aluminium is used on the front and side panels. This raises the rigidity of the chassis, and reduces vibration.

 

7.1-Channel Analogue Audio Output
The UB9000 and UB820 support analogue 7.1 channel audio for direct connection to a home theatre system for life-like surround sound. In addition, the UB9000 terminal is gold-plated to resist oxidisation and maintain high signal conductivity.
