Two new UHD Blu-ray players from newcomer Reavon launching in April​

Newcomer Reavon will launch its first two Ultra HD Blu-ray players in April. UBR-X100 and UBR-X200 are both described as 'universal disc players'. Prices start at 800 Euro.

Reavon describes both UBR-X100 and UBR-X200 as 'universal disc players' with support for UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, DVD, DVD Audio (according to Reavon's certification logos), SACD, and CD. They support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X as well as HDR10 and Dolby Vision, whereas no support for HDR10+ is listed. Both have two HDMI outputs; one for video and one for audio.

It is not often that we see newcomers in this segment anymore. Sales of UHD Blu-ray players started to decline in 2018, and Oppo abandoned the market the same year. Samsung followed in early 2019. LG, Panasonic, Sony and a handful of other players are still in the game and in late 2020 PS5 and Xbox Series X arrived with UHD Blu-ray playback support. However, the market remains a niche as evidenced by the new Reavon players.

The differences between the two models lie in analog audio output ports and other advanced audio capabilities in UBR-X200, and you will be paying a hefty premium for those features.

A French player hitting that niche market. Interesting.
Yes I agree, with the pandemic having a whole year under it's belt now has made the number of streaming users soar. I fear that this company is stepping into as you say a niche market where I fear that physical media is a dying breed so to speak. More and more people now being forced to stay at home were seeking better ways to pass the time and hitting the streaming market was a cool, easy alternative and now with the streaming services supporting Dolby Vision and Atmos, there's not much to stop them from climbing the charts. Don't look so much into the amount of physical media sold and selling but instead the statistics of people watching streaming services and you'll see a record all-time high. I fear that this company "Reavon" may be short lived so if anyone may be in the market for a new top of the line player they had better jump to it.
