Summary: I purchased this Marantz DVD player to go with my Marantz Stereo and CD player. Let me tell you that I love all 3 pieces and I highly recommend each component. I have been a huge Marantz fan since the 70's. I only use my DVD player for DVD discs and it plays flawlessly. The picture and sound quality are phenomenal. I can't believe how this machine has even enhanced my movies that are not Blu-Ray.
Summary: As to be expected, the Marantz UD5007 is excellent in form and function,as well as, sound and picture quality. I purchased the unit for its primary functions of playing music and movies on disc - whatever disc I happen to select. This unit is a nice compliment to my other Marantz components.
Pros: Great sound and picture. Easy to connect and operate.
Summary: I received the Marantz UD5007 a couple of weeks ago and have been very impressed. This unit loads movies super fast compared to our old pioneer bluray player. The picture quality is fantastic and the remote is easy to use.
Pros: Fast loading time Great picture quality Easy to use Convenient features on remote such as Netflix button
Nice player - compatible with my otherwise obsolete stereo.

Summary: My old DVD player croaked, leaving me without a way to play disks of any kind. The only thing I own with HDMI inputs is my TV which does an awful job decoding audio from HDMI. All sound in my system is handled by an old analog Onkyo 8522 stereo receiver. So, I was looking for a Bluray/CD player with analog RCA outputs which almost uniquely limited to this unit these days. No problem.
Pros: High quality 2ch analog outputs keeps your old obsolete stereo in play.
