Yes, that's correct Graham.Thanks for the review Steve.
Re. your comment on stripping HDR metadata, with my Epson LS10000 I’ve had no luck getting an SDR/BT2020 signal without the linker in the chain. On playback of a 4K disc, it just reverts to Rec.709 even if I set SDR/BT2020 in the menus. Presumably this is because it doesn’t officially support BT2020, even though in a practical sense it manages to do so fine.
So I’m presuming that with proper HDR projectors that do officially support BT2020, the player can just strip the metadata with no need for a linker.
I don't get the HDR10 metadata on mine. I thought that was only available on the UB9000?because you get a useful display showing how the disc was encoded and what signal is being sent to the display. A second press of the button also brings up further HDR10 metadata, which is cool.
It's not quitier with 4K UHD discs compared to my ex-UB700. Discs with DV can get a bit more noisier if your player is within 8 ft from your listening spot.Anyone upgraded from last years UB400?
I’m interested in this for the DV capability, and if it’s a bit quieter compared to the UB400 I’ll probably go for it.
UB400 is quiet during play, but when jumping chapters you hear it clearly...
I’d love the 9000 for build quality but not paying an extra £500 odd for that (as the audio side would not be appreciated).
No I mean pressing the Playback Info button a second time doesn't show HDR10 metadata like the review states, it only shows bit rate, audio format etc. when you press it.Did you mean HDR10+? If yes then make sure it is enabled via the system menu.
Ah ok. Yes those advanced information like MaxCLL / FALL etc. could be limited to UB9000. Haven't seen them on 820.No I mean pressing the Playback Info button a second time doesn't show HDR10 metadata like the review states, it only shows bit rate, audio format etc. when you press it.
I think that feature is only available on the UB9000.
It will depend on what tv you have.Any point in upgrading to a 4k player just for 1080p playback?
