Enjoy fabulous quality Blu-ray video and then stream audio (incl. FLAC) and video files (including DivX plus HD files) from your home network or Internet. The Marantz UD7007 can give you this universality because it’s not only a Blu-ray and DVD player it is also DLNA 1.5-certified, and even provides access to Netflix video on demand and YouTube Leanback online services. To ensure the best analogue stereo audio quality from CD and SACD, it includes the Marantz HDAM audio modules and uses specially customized components all on a dedicated audio board. It also offers you the choice of balance XLR or Cinch audio output. The fast loading high-quality mechanism is shielded by an aluminium top panel and a steal chassis bottom. The cabinet is also very rigid and an additional bottom plate adds extra strength to eliminate vibration. Also, the electronics are divided into five separate sections to minimise interference and maximise audio-video quality. In addition, the two HDMI 3D supporting output ports optimise flexibility in setup and in fine-tuning performance. But as with all Marantz players, musicality reigns supreme so you won’t be surprized when you find a “Pure Direct” mode, to ensure the best possible performance from CDs and even SACDs.
What Hi-Fi UK gave the UD7007 5-stars and commented: “This is a solidly made machine that performs to a very high standard. If you have the right system, it’s a terrific buy”.
