Tony O’Brien spins up a seriously capable new universal 4K Blu-ray player
"Built like a battleship, the UDP800 is a reference-grade universal disc player. It produced outstanding images that outperformed my superb, reference Oppo UDP-203 4K player. While colour reproduction is first-class, where this machine really shines is the sharpness and clarity of the images that it produces. Meanwhile, blacks are deep and inky, devoid of any video noise."

"For a high-quality AV experience, there is still nothing better than Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, especially when delivered by a premium player. Magnetar’s UDP800 is the star you need to illuminate your home theatre, combining DVD, Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray playback with handling of music formats including DVD-A and SACD. Comprehensive user menus and connectivity make this disc-spinner user friendly, while its high-end construction befits the price tag. The UDP800 delivers 4K discs (including Dolby Vision or HDR10+) with pin-sharp detailing and smooth colour gradations via HDMI, but switch to music though its analogue outputs (RCA or XLR) and its performance is equally captivating. The UDP800 is the long-awaited new king of discs."
Magnetar UDP800 disc player review
"On the movie side, no streaming version of any film can compare with 4K UHD disc playback in all its uncompressed glory. Serious movie fans will want a player that can maximize the experience and match the capabilities of their television and surround-sound setups.
I know you’ll be enthralled with the quality the UDP800 delivers with 4K UHD video and SACD audio, but I’m even more impressed with the experiences it delivers with DVDs and standard CDs. This player breathes new life into those aging and lower-resolution formats; it’s one of the most versatile investments you can make in your home theater."
