    The timing seems odd. Could Panasonic and Oppo be in collusion???

    Well, I am very happy to report that we'll be bring in the DP-UB9000 for USA distribution!

    Literally one moment ago Panasonic confirmed my 1st and 2nd allocations for the UB9000! Early December for the 1st allotment and one month later for each additional shipment.

    Is the unit that has the reportedly great HDR to SDR mapping for projectors? Or is it related in the product family?

    Yes, Panasonic's UB820 or the new flagship UB9000 are well known for excellent HDR to SDR conversion.

    Thanks. Their numbering confuses me, with both 8xx and 9xxx schemes. :)

    Hi Martin, thanks for the kind words! Yes, David and myself are doing well.

    Sorry to say I've only worked with Pioneer's LX500 at dealer meetings and at CEDIA. Somehow I missed the 1st small USA allocation and my opening order is scheduled to arrive early November.

    I have one UB9000 that the engineers in Japan sent me and we've used and tested it with several projectors and every new high-end OLED and LCD TV.
