MARANTZ UD5005 3D BLU-RAY PLAYER
Brace yourself. Seriously, really brace yourself. The onslaught of 3D products is upon us. Your old 2D TVs, Blu-ray players, and even receivers will all get a one-way ticket to the guest bedroom. Marantz isn’t helping things with this 3D Blu-ray player. It’s a universal machine (CD, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, Blu-ray, LP — okay, just seeing if you were paying attention there) that also plays popular file formats (such as MP3 and AAC) from disc.
The player supports DLNA 1.5 for home-network streaming of audio/video/photo content. The unit also has HDMI 1.4a connection, an allimportant feature for 3D playback. The 3D capability, as well as Netflix (subscription required) and YouTube video streaming, will be provided by a firmware update scheduled for sometime this fall/winter. At least your guests won’t have to watch movies on VHS anymore. us.marantz.com
