  • I do have streaming 4K services but the quality of the picture from the Oppo for UHD & HDR content is amazing
  • A seriously good player - both 4K content and upscaling. Well made and solid; looks and feels expensive.
  • Reference quality at a reasonable price. Infinitely tunable to your tastes, if your serious about home cinema you have to have one of these!

What customers say about "Features"
Panasonic DMP-UB900EBK 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Player
  • The online services, firmware updates, apps are all fast and efficient. The remote is very intuitive and also has a backlight, which is invaluable when watching Blu-ray films in an otherwise dark room.
  • Amazing player. Quiet and fast and reliable (unlike the Xbox One X which I made the mistake of buying first). Worth paying that bit extra for such a great machine.
  • It also looks stylish with the entire front panel opening downwards to reveal the disc drawer, alongside a USB and SD card slot.
  • The DMP-UB900EBK plays all of my old DVD's but it's like watching them for the first time because they're up scaled so well the colour and clarity are fantastic Bluray is even better and my new 4K films are out of this world.
  • Upscaling extremely effective, connectivity and operation intuitive.
OPPO UDP-203 UHD 4K Bluray Player
  • Oppo 203 can make ANY 4K disc play in Dolby Vision. Not only that but it upscales regular blu rays to 2160p and also in dolby Vision. As the owner of a DV capable display this was music to my eyes!!
  • It has no 'smart apps' of its own (like Netflix, Amazon Video etc) but I have an Apple TV 4K plugged into the Oppo's HDMI input which covers all that stuff.
  • A great remote, ease of use, silent playback and the ability to play pretty much any media makes this an expensive but worthwhile, nay, essential addition to any cinephiles home setup.
  • Disc after disc I fed the Oppo just to see what it could do. Jaws, Indiana Jones, Lord Of The rings. Older not reference discs like The Princess Bride and Midnight run. All were revelatory.
  • The remote also has a great audio only button that sends a black screen to my TV when I'm just listening to music. Very useful to help you drift off into an album.

What customers say about "Outputs"
Panasonic DMP-UB900EBK 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Player
  • One things that sold it for me, was the discrete analogue outputs for audio, meaning I could use my 5.1 amp and 2.0 receiver amp together to create a temporary 7.1 surround set-up.
  • There is a second HDMI socket to route the audio to my home cinema amp. A spare HDMI cable is supplied. Plays music & movies via USB and SD cards as well.
  • Sound via HDMI through the receiver is top notch too.
  • It has two HDMI outlets on the back. One goes direct to the TV, the other to the receiver, as my Onkyo receiver is not 4K enabled, so won't decode the new UHD sound.
  • It has two HDMI ports (one for audio & video and the other for audio) which is brilliant for us audio fanatics.
OPPO UDP-203 UHD 4K Bluray Player
  • It also has network play so I can also watch and listen to all the media I have stored on my NAS.
  • As a player it is great, works well with my NAS
  • Its the best network media player, you know its going to play network files and play the HD audio formats without a hitch.
  • Pleased it has a HDMI input that is unusual for other players. Appears to be very well constructed.
