Just confirmed no successor to the UB9000 or UB820 will be announced at CES. The UB9000 and UB820 will continue on through 2020-21.

Also no Instant Rebate promotions or price reductions are planned for the UB9000 as the tariffs have made it impossible to make this device's price any lower. So our $998 double boxed and delivered price with Spears & Munsil's 10bit test disc included is the best deal.

" Let me start off by saying that the DP-UB9000 is a videophile’s dream component. Its adjustability is simply staggering, and you can spend many hours playing with various settings for both HDR and SDR output. If you don’t want to fiddle, the default settings work well too. But many HDR displays have little to no control over their luminance curves which makes it hard for all content to look its best. I connected the Panasonic to an Epson 5050UB projector which has 16 different HDR luminance curves available between the two components, I could tailor HDR output very precisely to my room and screen."

Pretty much why I like this player so much. I'm loving the amount of features to optimize the video.

Robert Zahn, is the 820 going to drop $100 at your store. It is available on other sites at $399 but not yours.
I'd rather deal with Value Electronics, than all the rest. Thanks.

I remain infuriated that this critical feature remains only available on a thousand dollar device. Panasonic can pound sand.
The Panasonic 820 is $400, and has an HDR optimizer. I own this model, and it's been a terrific player. I think it's on the 420, too, but that model lacks Dolby Vision support.
