Summary: Model year is actually 2011. Have had this unit for close to 4 months. While I find the audio and video quality acceptable and like the youtube feature, I am extremely disappointed with the build quality and problems. First the unit shuts off randomly.
Summary: A blanket note of caution to all fellow Marantz lovers: warranty repairs can be maddeningly slow and ineffective. I bought a beautiful Marantz SACD player (model SA8260) and it has spent more than one month out of every six months in the shop.
Marantz UD5005 BluRay Player (no wireless capability)

Summary: Waited for months to purchase the Marantz UD5005 BluRay Player. It was finally available, so I ordered right away. Overall, an excellent purchases. HOWEVER, I should have read more about its capabilities. It isn't wireless.
Summary: Most people will want to know this first so here it is - The video quality is fantastic! Drop your Blu-Ray in it and enjoy! it is that simple. But I'm an audio guy and I needed it to play things just right along those lines.
Summary: Been waiting for a replacement for my Denon universal DVD that only had component outputs. Picture was already beautiful on my Runco DLP out of the box and through the HDMI. I knew it had the capability of playing Netflix and that works fine. Plays all my DVD audio and my SACD's as well.
Summary: I bough a Bose v35 also from Amazon and since it doesnt come with a player i needed a quality player to go with it. The priority was clear crisp sound the good picture quality. I wanted something that clould play blue ray and with some 3D capability and essentially to complement my Bose in all...
Summary: Was hoping this was as good as the Oppo but seems slow to load Blu ray discs (~2 minutes) and freezes up when viewing BD live content so I have to get up an manually turn it off to get past that. Maybe Marantz will fix with a firmware update. The only wireless provider they player has is NetFlix.
Excellent Sound and Picture quality (Blu Ray & DVD)

Summary: This is simply a very solid and high-end performing Blu Ray/DVD/CD/SACD player. This is not a bells and whistles players. In essence + Amazing picture quality (Blu ray and dvd) + Audiophile sound quality (Marantz!
Summary: I bought this player specifically because it had the ability to do Blu-Ray 3D *** Please note to upgrade the Firmware for your Player before you start using *** I currently have a Sony S2000ES BD as my reference player.
