Marantz UD7007 Universal Blu-ray HD Player
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 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.
When audio cannot be enjoyed via HDMI connection, the audio output has to be connected analogue to the receiver or output screen. When a source product is not equipped with an analogue multichannel output but only a stereo audio output, the internal 2-channel downmix processing automatically downmixes a 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 signal back to a stereo signal (2.0). Optional to the HDMI of course the digital audio output can be used for standard multichannel audio as Dolby Digital or DTS.
3D stands for 3 dimensional. Products carrying the 3D logo are able to output or path through the digital 3D video signal.
297MHz/12-bit High resolution digital video signal are supported.

Super Audio CD (SA-CD) is an established music format that provides a more natural, ultra-high quality sound. It offers a smooth migration path to a higher quality sound, as all existing CDs can be played on the SA-CD player. SA-CD is based on the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology, which uses 1 bit delta-sigma modulation and a sampling frequency that is 64 times higher than that of the CD. This enables the SA-CD to offer a frequency range up to 100KHz and a dynamic range of 120dB.
USB Audio makes it possible to listen to compressed audio files (MP3, Windows Media™ Audio, etc.) stored on MP3 players or external harddiscs. All Marantz USB enabled products make use of the USB 2.0 profile for fast and stable data transfer.
