Marantz UD9004 Universal Blu-ray Player

Introduction

When I hear the name Marantz, the first thing that comes to mind for me is music. From the 1950’s when Saul Marantz introduced the company’s first preamplifier, Marantz has been creating products which help people enjoy music in their lives. Today they create some of the best high performance audio products available as well as products which are accessible to the average home theater enthusiast. The Marantz UD9004 is their flagship universal disc player and is designed to let you enjoy every conceivable disc in your collection.

The UD9004 presents an interesting challenge in that it strives to reproduce the audio from SACD, CD and DVD-Audio and tackle the challenges brought on by DVD-Video and today’s high resolution audio formats and Blu-ray video. In short, play everything well and do it with the quality that one expects a flagship player to deliver.
