There's a new unit from Panasonic UB900 supposed to be an able replacement to the discontinued Oppo units.

I have a UDP205. Picture is great. Sound for movies is great. I played an SACD the other day, no subwoofer or surround output. I don't know whether it is a setting in the Marantz 7703 processor or the Oppo, haven't figured out either yet.

I have an LG with HDR (Dolby Vision and HDR10). Sound quality is good. I don't think it handles either SACD or DVD-A.

I think the Panasonic or the Sony would be a good pick. Have neither though.

OK, So I used up my credit on some B-D discs before the credit runs out. I'd still like to get a 4K player, but the pressure is off to make a purchase by yesterday.

I have another simplistic question that I feel I SHOULD know the answer to, but don't:

My LG OLED TV supports Dolby Vision as well as the HLG HDR standard. LG does not state that it supports HDR 10 or HDR 10+.

Is support for these HDR formats needed in BOTH the TV and a disc player when playing compatible discs?

Or, if the disc player is, for example, compatible with reading and processing the HDR 10 or HDR 10+ info off the disc, is that all that matters (as long as the TV has the capability of displaying the wide gamut necessary)?

One of the things that made me unsure of buying a Sony 800 as was recommended here is that it doesn't support Dolby Vision. In today's Best Buy flyer, I noticed that the Sony 700 (currently on sale for only $180) DOES support Dolby Vision. So I'm now considering that as a potential, especially compared to the $500 that the Panasonic will sell for.

If you're in no hurry, I'd just wait for the one with the features you need, Mark.

I use the Sony 800 with Epson 5040UB 4K and it is killer, no bugs.
