  1. I have decided on the Panasonic player as what i want. UB820, but i see there is also a UB450 or 420. I will only be using this player for movies in a theater room using a AVR 7.1, so the audio needs to be top notch as well. Think i'll start a new thread on this. Thanks guys
  2. Both my tv and the AVR use ARC. I guess either way would work fine.
  3. Anyone here have a data sheet for the new K33E woofer 121501? Thanks
  4. Too bad these aren't a bit deeper. They would work perfect.
  5. I haven't ordered new woofers yet as i'm still playing with adjustments and really need the room closed off to get a good listen in the upper db range. I did change the attenuation 1db(from 7db to 8db) and it seems a move in the right direction, it's hard to tell with only 1bd adjustment. I also tried some different preamp tubes i had laying around. The Electro Harmonics 12AX7 GOLD. These little babies made i nice improvement in the sound stage opening it up a bunch and brought out strings and cymbals a bit more. Over all, it's sound pretty badass, but i'm still looking for a bit more bass. I might make another adjustment on the mid attenuation and set it a 9db. This should bring out a bit more bass. With the B&C 85TN mid driver spec at 107db and the Kappalite 3015LF at 96, that would give a 2db spread between woofer and mid.
  6. After all the reviews and help on here, I think the UB820 is the player for me. I can buy new for under $500, so fits the budget nicely. The ub820 had 2 hdmi out’s, so why can’t I run and hdmi out to the tv and another out to the marantz?
  7. Ok, how does the 820 picture quality compare to the 105?
  8. Well, i'm not sure how these items all connect, but will be using a Marantz SR5007 with the Samsung tv. So, not sure of my connects with these components.
  9. Yes, they are pricey. You guys have been a great help in my search.
  10. What was your previous player to the UB820? I'm looking for great picture quality as well as sound quality.
  11. Lets keep it simple. I read a review on the UB820, where a gentleman bought an 820 to replace his old 500. Said picture quality was not as good with the 820 as he had with the 500, so he bought the 9000 and was more than happy. The 9000 is just way more that i want to spend on a player at this time. The Panasonic looks to be a very nice player on the cheap. Still looking. On the other hand, how much better is 4K vs the old 1080p? May settle for the oppo103.
  12. You guys are getting a bit over my head here. I don't have a DAC. I thought i could buy a player and connect to my TV with HDMI and be done. Simple plug and play. Looking for simplicity here.
  13. The UB820 looks to be very nice. The UB9000 looks even nicer, but out of my cost range. I also see a 420 and a 150.
  14. Ok, a bit complicated for me as i'm a simple 2ch stereo guy. I assume you mean 4Kx2K output plug in is on the oppo 103 unit? Or is there a separate piece of equipment i need to make this happen?
