    Yep and yep. My Yamaha is a RX-A2080. So far no problems with lip sync. Didn't have any with the UB820 either.

    Well.

    I just had a terrific conversation with Robert Zohn Of Value Electronics. His store happens to be right next to one of my accounts so I will be stopping by next week.

    He even offered to help me set up my 820 and install it it regardless of If purchased it from him. Terrific guy.

    Whatever I buy moving forward, I'm buying from him.

    That's exactly how I feel about Robert Zohn and Value Electronics. Service that guarantees my return as a customer whenever I need to shop for equipment.

    Indeed. He has gone above, and beyond in answering questions for me, and his customer service is second to none. I am a lifelong customer now. I live in Michigan, and I love that there is no tax, or shipping charge.

    Why did you get you rid of the Oppo 203?

    I live in Michigan too and have purchase stuff from Robert including my OLED. I would most likely buy my next player from them too.

    Mostly because it was sitting in my rack almost completely unutilized. I was using the UB820 for disc playback almost exclusively due to its superior video output. I only used the Oppo for the occasional Region B Blu-ray title. Rather than let it just sit there doing almost nothing, I thought I’d pass it along to someone who would use more of its features. So, I sold the UB820 and (still for sale) the Oppo, and bought the UB9000 and a $150 LG region-free player.

    Interesting, as I didn't know you thought this highly of the Panny over the Oppo. I have two Oppo 203 players that I'm extremely happy with.

    I’ve felt this all along, even with my previous Panasonic UB900. Better detail than the UDP-203 to my eyes in my system. The Oppo is most definitely a fine player, however. If I’d never compared it with the Pannys I would have been perfectly happy with it, and as a do-it-all player it stands alone if you’re looking for a one-stop solution for disc and media playback. But like I said, since I wasn’t using any of its audio or networking functionality, I thought it was being wasted when it could instead be bringing someone else a lot of joy. Hence my decision.

    It is sad that whenever I get a new player my older models just seem to sit unused. Since I got my 9000, I haven't touched my UB900, or my Oppo 205.

    Indeed. However, I only buy a new player if it's an improvement over what I currently have, so that tends to balance out the melancholy for me. Plus, hey, new toy!!! ;)

    The "new toy" is a big part of it. So fun finding fiddling with features on a new player.
    The 9000 will be my last player for a looong time. I have three 4K players. that is quite enough. No more.
    I think.:unsure:

    Something else that gives the UB9000 and edge is HDR optimizer which is proprietary to the Panasonic!

    Noone in the right mind would recommend a Samsung since they are bailing on the market.
