New high-end Magnetar UHD Blu-ray player with both HDR10+ & Dolby Vision

14 Dec 2022 | Rasmus Larsen |

The new UDP800 UHD Blu-ray player promises reference image quality as well as multi-format support for UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD and more. Price? 1600 Euro.

Niche companies such as Pannde, Reavon and  now Magnetar are trying to step in with high-end UHD Blu-ray players after Oppo abandoned the disc player market.

- "Equipped with the famous professional quad-core system Media Tek MT8581 chipset, the UDP800 4K UHD Blu-ray player features advanced image decoding and processing technology, with 4K ultra HD and HDR support, including Dolby Vision and HDR10+, providing clear and sharp picture and rich colors," said Magnetar.

A premium price tag, too

At 1600 Euro, it is significantly more expensive than UHD Blu-ray players from, for example, Panasonic and Sony. Magnetar argues that UDP800 is designed as a premium product both inside and out. It supports HDR10, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, and spins both video discs and audio discs such as DVD-Audio, SACD and CD. In addition, it has analog outputs and a "high-quality MUSES8920 amp for audiophile sound quality". It has a rigid design with an aluminium front and weighs a total of 8 kilograms. A USB hard drive can be connected for playback of local media files. Is that enough to justify the hefty 1600 Euro price tag? We will let you be the judge of that. Magnetar UDP800 is available now in Europe.
