LG launches UBK90 & UBK80 UHD Blu-ray players

28 May 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

UBK90 supports Dolby Vision, whereas UBK80 supports only the HDR10 base format. Both UHD Blu-ray players are now shipping in the US and Europe.

New UHD Blu-ray players

The most expensive UPK90 will succeed last year’s UP70 and is meant for consumers with Dolby Vision enabled TVs such as LG’s own high-end OLED or LCD models.

Naturally, both players adhere to the UHD Blu-ray specification, meaning that they will support 4K resolution, HDR10, and object-based audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Besides Dolby Vision support, UBK90 offers two HDMI outputs (1 for video, 1 for audio) and built-in WiFi. UBK80 has only one HDMI port and an Ethernet port.

To fully enjoy the picture experience that UHD Blu-ray discs have to offer, you need a 4K TV with good HDR capabilities. Those include OLED TVs or LCD TVs with zone dimming.

In addition, both players will spin your HD Blu-ray, 3D Bu-ray, DVD, and CDs.

LG UBK80 and UBK90 are available now in the US and Europe.
