4.5 out of 5 stars

The UD8004 was called sophisticated and very capable with fine build quality by Tech Radar. The fan was a little noisy and some discs took time to be identified, but otherwise this was an eloquent player. The price of the UD8004 is a little high but this is well balanced against it's abilities and performance although the lack of a USB port was a surprise.

“outstanding” (108 out of 120 points)

Value for money: “very good”

“Blu-ray universal player, which also masters DVD Audio and SACD. Extensive features and connection variety. Sounds pleasantly musical through HDMI and also through analogue output.”

Value for money: “very good” (3 out of 5 stars)

“In regards to features and handling it is equal to the Denon brother. For audio electronics, Marantz has clearly put in a lot more effort, which pays off tonally and which justifies the additional price.”
