Introducing the UB-9000, Panasonic’s flagship 4K Blu-ray player. Building on their years of experience, the UB-9000 is ready to set new standards for video and audio quality in home cinema.
The UB-9000 sounds every bit as good as it looks. Whether you’re looking for the digital processing power to handle your high-resolution audio files (from WAV to ALAC, or your favourite DSD format), or want the kind of analogue excellence that you only get with a balanced XLR output, the UB-9000 does it all with ease. Designed with discrete power supply for the analogue stage, the UB-9000 is a finely crafted audio device on every level. Add in the carefully-selected audio components and the rock-solid build quality, and you’re in for a crystal-clear listening experience free of distracting noise.
Panasonic’s unique HCX Processor for Ultra HD offers stunning picture quality, with crisp images and precise colours that will reveal new levels of detail for a truly astounding viewing experience. The UB-9000’s Chroma Processing works in concert with the latest HDR formats to bring every scene to life with breathtaking colour and rich, complex shading that makes even the most fantastical images look shockingly real. The end result is a THX-certified image that has all the nuance and colour of a cinema, but in the convenience of your own lounge room. It even brings new dimension to your old favourites, with its impressive upscaling and HDR optimiser turning standard Blu-rays into showpieces of precision and clarity.

Stunning Colour and Detail
Technologies from Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory, the base for Blu-ray Disc Research & Development, are applied to Panasonic‘s unique “4K High Precision Chroma Processing.” 4K image colour signals (4:2:0) are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by a multi-tap chroma process, for natural textures and depth.
Reduced Vibration and Noise During Disc Rotation
A newly developed drive base with a 3-dimensional, thick steel plate fixes the optical disc drive to the centre of the 2-layer chassis to reduce vibration and noise during disc rotation. Thick aluminium is used on the front and side panels to raise the rigidity of the chassis and reduce vibration.
Clear Sound with Minimal Noise
AC/DC Conversion Circuit – By separating the power for the audio D/A converter and analogue output circuit at their origin, the noise effects are reduced. In addition, soft switching control lowers the noise of the power supply itself.
High quality components and circuit design provide a totally balanced signal transmission, achieved by using differential circuits all the way from the D/A converter output to the XLR output terminal.
Versatile Audio Outputs
The 2 channel (XLR/RCA) and 7.1 channel output terminals are separated. Moreover, the 2 channel output is equipped with a balanced XLR output terminal in addition to the RCA terminal.
Stylish Reference-class Design
The UB9000 offers a premium design utilising sharp lines and thick aluminium front and side panels treated with alumite, helping to provide rigidity to reduce vibration and support high sound quality whilst offering aesthetics suited to a reference class model.
Online VOD Content in 4K
Today, a wide variety of high-quality 4K content is available at your fingertip. The UB9000 processes these high-definition internet video signals with Panasonic’s original 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor to achieve crisp, beautiful images.
