The Marantz UD8004 is a high-end Blu-ray Disc player released in early 2010. In addition to playing 1080p video content, this player is also compatible with CD, Super Audio and DVD-Audio formats. This product is a step below the flagship Marantz UD9004. What separates this Blu-ray player from others is its unique triple-sectioned construction. The power supply, microprocessor array and analog circuitry are completely separated from each other. This engineering decision helps to prevent interference, allowing for the best image and sound quality the UD8004 can provide. A 32-bit SHARC processor takes care of high-def audio, while the Anchor Bay ABT2015 provides the video upscaling. In addition to a variety of analog outputs, HDMI 1.3 is fully integrated for 36-bit Deep Color support. The Marantz UD8004 comes in a reinforced aluminum enclosure in order to protect the device.
