Marantz UD9004 Universal Blu-ray Player


Marantz looks to be jumping on the universal Blu ray bandwagon with plans for a UD9004 built upon their SA-7S1 SACD-CD reference design. The UD9004 will be BD Live-ready with Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) technology, dual-SHARC HD audio processing, a 10-bit Silicon Optix Realta chipset, 36-bit color / 297MHz/14-bit Video DAC and has a SD card slot. Full HD audio support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio codecs is also built-in.  Since it is Marantz, expect to pay a nice hunk of green paper for the UD9004, though their hasn’t been an announcement of  an official price tag or release date yet.
