If you're looking for a premium universal Blu-ray player with networking capabilities, audiophile performance, and Marantz quality, you owe it to yourself to audition the UD7007. It's one of the best universal players that you'll find at anywhere near the price. Audiophiles and videophiles alike will appreciate all of the enhancements that have gone into this flagship transport.
Compatible with nearly every video and audio disc format, this player ensures superb sound performance with its advanced circuitry and high-grade build quality.
In addition to playing Blu-ray discs, DVDs and music CDs, the Marantz UD7007 universal disc player also provides superb audio quality with high-resolution audio disc formats, including SACD and DVD-Audio. The UD7007 is also equipped with a range of network streaming functions that let you enjoy audio and video content from a variety of free and subscription services, thanks to its Ethernet connectivity. Online streaming services that the UD7007 will bring to you include YouTube, Netflix, Hulu Plus and VUDU. (Subscription may be required for some services.)
True Audiophile Performance
As you would expect from Marantz, the UD7007 is equipped with Marantz's exclusive HDAM-SA2 (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules) in the critical analog stages for the ultimate in audio fidelity. For optimum audio and video quality, the UD7007 is equipped with dual HDMI outputs that let you stream dedicated digital audio and digital video feeds to your audio system and your HDTV display.
Audiophiles who want their video, too, will consider the UD7007 a must-have. In addition to the HDAM preamplifier circuitry, it also boasts XLR balanced audio outputs, just like Marantz's best two-channel SACD player. It's a true audiophile two-channel player with full support for the latest BluRay video discs too, so you can have your 3D video without sacrificing sound quality.
Even the dual HDMI outputs are designed with the audiophile in mind. One of the HDMI outputs carries audio data only, so the player’s display and video circuitry can be turned off and high-resolution audio signals are still passed via HDMI to your preamp-processor. This makes the UD7007 ideal for multi-channel SACD, DVD-Audio, or other high-resolution audio sources
Premium Build Quality Ensures High-Fidelity Playback
From the chassis to the disc mechanism, every component of the UD7007 Disc Player has been engineered to deliver a faithful, audiophile-grade sound. The disc mechanism is fully shielded to dampen internal and external vibrations. Sound quality is further improved by the player's five-block construction, which offers thorough protection from electromagnetic interference.
Supports High-Definition Video and DLNA 1.5
The UD7007 delivers high-quality video performance, with support for HD resolutions of up to 1080p. The player features two HDMI outputs, enabling simultaneous independent connections to an HDTV and a surround sound system. And with HDMI source-direct mode, you can enjoy Blu-ray and DVD content in its native resolution of the original material, free of stretching or picture distortion. The player also supports DLNA 1.5 for photo, video and music streaming from a networked PC.Thanks to its built-in decoding, the UD7007 handles all of today's most advanced surround sound formats, including DTS, DTS96/24, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS HD.
Ethernet Port and USB Port for Easy Streaming
Equipped with an Ethernet port for easy streaming, the player also features a USB port, which you can use to stream content from USB drives and other removable storage media. The player is compatible with a broad range of digital audio and video formats, including MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, FLAC, JPEG, PNG, DivX, MPEG, WMV, and AVI.
Intuitive Interface and Remote Control
Controlling the UD7007 is easy, thanks to its user-friendly interface and convenient remote control. The remote control gives you easy access to all of the player's functions and features large, glowing keys for easier operation. The remote is also compatible with Marantz AV receivers, giving you consolidated control over all your devices.

|Amazingly analog sounding SACD/Bluray player!|
This year, I went looking to upgrade my old tube-based DAC with something that would do HDTracks 24/196 files. I tried several DACs before settling on the Matantz UD7007. [#1] Mytek 196 - a great DAC with a very warm yet detailed sound. Amazing with vocals and acoustic music. But I found that it had a sound and made everything feel a bit over processes [#2] NAD M51 Direct Digital D/A converter - a great box with amazing bass! WOW! Kind of clinical, and a bit expensive at $2,000. Plus I often got a solid GREEN screen from the HDMI pass through. [#3] Bel Canto 2.5 DAC - very analog sounding, but it lost some resolution and some dynamic range in the trade off [#4] OPPO 105 Universal Player - an outstanding player with great sound, but made everything too bright and a bit over etched [#5] Marantz UD7007 - WOW! Analog with all the detail & bass weight -- but what won me over was how musical everything sounded. Metallica, Diana Krall, John Meyer, Chet Baker.... DVDs, SACDs, CDs, HDTracks downloads -- everything sounds great on the UD7007. The interesting thing is everything sound different: every piece sounds more real, yet they dont all sound the same. Plus: the Marantz remote controls my BAT preamp! SCORE!
