While the specification appears to ape the brand’s flagship, the cosmetics borrow from Panasonic’s budget model. It’s nearly, but not quite, an update on the well regarded 2016-era DMP-UB900. Build quality is unapologetically mass market, but for all that, the model looks entirely passable. The plastic cabinet is gloss black, while a bevelled frontage drops down to reveal the offset disc tray. There’s also a USB port for media playback. Manual buttons sit up top to handle power and disc loading.
Rear connectivity includes twin HDMIs (one an audio only output, for those using a pre-4K AV receiver who need to route UHD video directly to a screen); Ethernet; another USB (a speedy 3.0 connection); and an optical digital audio output. Wi-Fi comes as standard if you don’t want to stay tethered.
