Summary: Behold, the power of Marantz returns! I have a panoply of SACDs, DVD-Audios, Blu Rays, HDCDs, DVDs, and yes...regular CDs. This plays all those except HDCD, but if you bitstream it to a HDCD capable receiver (like my Marantz SR8002 its paired with) you have no problem.
Here I am Back again after years of bad experiences with 'Universal Players'

Summary: Here I am Back again after years of bad experiences with 'Universal Players', But as my birthday was coming up and my wife actually bought this for me 'Happy Birthday Sweetie', I was curious with what Marantz would do in the face of the 'Oppo' assault on the market.
Summary: You can by an inexoensive blu ray player from and endvap at your local department store these days ... but, if you want one that has phenominal sound reproduction, fast queuing during start up, FF, and chapter skips, then spend the money on this unit.
Pros: Great sound! Very fast! Nice graphical menu for installed app access
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.
Pros: High quality 2ch analog outputs keeps your old obsolete stereo in play.
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.
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.
