    The new DP-UB450 UHD Blu-ray player is a more affordable option for those buyers who seek wide support for HDR formats. Like the more expensive UB9000 and UB820, UB450 supports both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, in addition to the base HDR10 format.

    I will be interested to see the pricing on the UB450. Since I have waited this long to pull the trigger on the current UB820, I may as well wait a little longer to see how this model shakes out for my upgrade to a Dolby Vision capable player.

    Bit too late for me... Sorta wish they'd announced it a month ago, but then again...

    It looks like Sony is coming out with a X800M2, as well. Supposedly adding Dolby Vision support to the original X800 and retaining both SACD and DVD-Audio playback capabilities. I will have to compare pricing and performance between the UB450 and X800M2. I currently own the original X800, and it's nice to have the SACD/DVD-A capability, as my Oppo 980H is getting long in the tooth.
