Our take on the Marantz UD5007

by David Brown
Marantz

Blu-ray Disc players — the ultimate picture and sound

Blu-ray players deliver a better picture to your HDTV than any other available source. In fact, Blu-ray's 1080p picture is a perfect match for the 1080p screens found on most current TVs. Blu-ray movies also offer the most precise and realistic surround sound you can get. These players do a terrific job with standard DVDs, too — you'll see a cleaner, clearer picture with every disc in your collection. Many Blu-ray players can connect to the Internet for watching online movies from Netflix® and other video services.

Enjoy 3D movies and more with this Blu-ray powerhouse

Looking for a Blu-ray player that can make easy work of any disc you throw at it? Marantz will answer the call with its UD5007 universal Blu-ray player. This rugged workhorse will take on all comers, including the latest 3D Blu-rays, delivering spectacular visual effects to your 3D-ready TV. Standard Blu-ray titles will be as crisp as ever, as will your DVDs. The UD5007's upscaling technology will give your old discs new life, making them sparkle with high-definition clarity.

Marantz does audio right

This player not only packs impressive video capabilities — Marantz's dedication to audio fidelity means the UD5007 makes a great CD player capable of bringing out the best in your music collection. It even handles high-resolution formats like SACD and DVD-Audio as well as FLAC playback streamed from a DLNA-certified PC. The UD5007 is a great addition to any home theater setup, capable of delivering stunning surround sound to your receiver via an HDMI connection.

Expand your viewing choices with Internet streaming services

In addition to its prowess with physical media, the UD5007 is Ethernet jack-equipped and Internet-ready for streaming movies and TV shows from services like Netflix®, YouTube™, HuluPlus™ and VUDU®. The Internet connection also gives you access to BD-Live, Blu-ray's platform for downloading bonus content for compatible discs. Watch updated interviews, behind-the-scenes features and even picture-in-picture commentary from actors and directors. The UD5007 includes 1 gigabyte of built-in memory for storing BD-Live content. Or simply stick a thumb drive into the front-panel USB port to store content, as well as access your own digital music files, videos or photos.

Built to last

You shouldn't have to buy a new Blu-ray player every other year — so buy one that is built to last. Marantz is well-respected for the build-quality of its audio components, and they've applied that same approach to the UD5007. The solid cabinet, large feet and physical separation of the disc mechanism, display, power supply and processing circuitry are designed to minimize interference and distortion. The fan-less design further reduces unwanted distraction, meaning your Blu-ray player won't be louder than the movies you play on it.

Disc Compatibility

Multi-Disc Compatible: The Marantz UD5007 Super Audio CD/Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types.

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-Video, BD-3D, BD-R, BD-RE
DVD DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, SACD

Blu-ray Disc Compatible: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a new high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 40 mbps. Blu-ray Discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:

  • Better Picture Quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 1080/24p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
  • Better Sound Quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and uncompressed 5.1 channel PCM
  • Greater Storage Capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
  • Backward Compatible: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.

Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. This player is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Firmware Updates: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet, via the player's Ethernet port.

SACD: Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range - some 64 times higher resolution then CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just cannot hear on a normal CD.

DVD Audio: DVD Audio is a digital audio format that delivers high-fidelity audio content on a DVD disc. DVD-Audio supports bit depths up to 24-bit and sample rates up to 192 kHz, while CD audio is only 16-bit, 44.1 kHz. Compared to CD audio discs, DVD Audio offers considerable more music storage, higher audio quality, and additional audio channels for surround sound. DVD-Audio offers many possible configurations of audio channels (up to 5.1-channel surround sound).

AVCHD Playback: The UD5007 will play home videos recorded in AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264), a high definition digital video camera format used to record in high definition or standard definition on DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW discs. AVCHD can also be played from a USB flash memory device connected to the front panel port.

DivX File Playback: The UD5007 supports playback of DivX (up to DivX Plus HD) files recorded on DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW discs, USB flash memory, or streamed from the connected network. This unit supports DivX file sizes up to 2 GB.

JPEG/PNG Playback: The player will also playback JPEG/PNG still image files written to CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW discs, USB flash memory, or streamed from the connected network; image resolutions from 32 x 32 pixels to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels are supported. The maximum file size is 12 MB. The name of the folder and file can be displayed, up to 32 characters. Images can be played as a slide-show and can be rotated as needed.

MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV/FLAC Playback: The Marantz Blu-ray player will play MP3, WMA, AAC, and LPCM audio files written to CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and DVD+R/RW discs, USB flash memory, or streamed from the connected network. The name of the folder and file can be displayed, up to 32 characters. The following file specifications are supported:

  • MP3: sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz and bit rates of 64-320 kbps
  • WMA: sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz and bit rates of 48-192 kbps
  • AAC: sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz and constant bit rates of 32-320 kbps
  • WAV (LPCM): 16/24-bit, and sampling frequencies of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192kHz
  • FLAC: 8/16/24-bit, and sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192kHz

Video Features

High Quality Construction: The Marantz UD5007's sleek contoured front panel combines both aluminum and reinforced resin composite to dampen resonance and blend with virtually any décor. The panel's construction helps resist the destructive effects of unwanted vibration, while the custom-engineered feet add a further barrier to vibration as well as a nicely finished look. The Blu-ray player's centrally located disc mechanism places the critical disc-laser interface in the middle of the chassis to minimize the kind of artifacts that could impact both audio and video quality. Additional high-quality design features include:

  • Fully Shielded Drive Mechanism: The Marantz SACD/Blu-ray player employs a fully shielded drive mechanism which suppresses internal and external vibrations and electromagnetic noise for consistent, precise playback.
  • Independent Block Construction: The SACD/Blu-ray player incorporates separated 4-block construction for faithful playback of audio and video signals (Disc mechanism, Video/Audio, Power supply, and Indicator block)
  • Fan-less Design: The Marantz UD5007 employs a fan-less design which makes the player exceptionally quiet during playback.

HDMI Output: The Marantz UD5007 features a single HDMI output for HD audio and video signal transmission. The HDMI port is version 1.4a with Deep Color, x.v. color, 3D, and CEC support. Video resolutions include 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 1080/24p. There are also Source Direct (source resolution is not changed) and Auto (outputs the highest resolution compatible with the connected display) settings.

Note: This player does not feature any analog video outputs, such as component, composite, or S-video.

1080p Scaling: DVD discs, USB video, and network steaming video can be scaled, up to 1080p from the HDMI port.

3D Ready: The Marantz UD5007 lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. 3D viewing requires compatible 3D content, 3D HDTV, 3D emitter & glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (supporting at least 10.2 Gbps) connection. The Blu-ray player offers several 3D settings.

  • 3D Output: You can choose between Auto (automatically determines whether the video signal is 3D or 2D) or Off (always outputs 2D video signals).
  • Screen Size: You can enter the size of your TV from 0" to 999".

Deep Color: The HDMI output supports Deep Color, increasing the number of bits available for transmission, meaning more colors. This results in greater color fidelity, smooth tonal transitions, and ultra-fine gradations between colors. It also enables many times more shades of gray, for higher contrast ratio.

x.v.Color: The UD5007's HDMI output supports x.v.Color, meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs when they become available in the future.

Progressive Mode: The Marantz UD5007 allows you to set the appropriate progressive conversion mode for the source video material (film or video) you are watching. You can choose from:

  • Auto: Detects the type of video material and automatically switches the mode. Normally, this setting is used most often.
  • Video: Suitable for playing video material discs.
  • Film: Suitable for playing film material discs.

TV Aspect: This function of the Super Audio CD/Blu-ray disc player lets you set a picture size according to the aspect ratio of your connected television. You can choose from the following.

  • 16:9 Wide: Select this when a wide-screen TV is connected; discs recorded in wide-screen format are played over the entire screen.
  • 16: Squeeze Auto: When playing 4:3 images, the picture is displayed in the center of the 16:9 screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • 4:3 Pan&Scan: Select this to play back the disc recorded in wide screen format with 4:3 TV in the Pan&Scan mode with the side of the picture cut off.
  • 4:3 Letter Box: select this to play back the disc recorded in wide screen format with 4:3 TV in the letter box mode with black strips at the top and bottom.

Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the picture quality of the Super Audio CD/Blu-ray disc player's video output connected to your television and save up to 5 picture setting presets. You can adjust the following picture settings.

  • 3DNR: Reduces the overall level of noise on the picture (0 to +3).
  • BNR: Reduces the block noise generated by digital processing (0 to +3).
  • MNR: Reduces the noise around the outline of an object generated by digital processing (0 to +3).
  • Contrast: Adjusts the difference between the bright and dark parts of the picture (-6 to +6).
  • Brightness: Adjusts the brightness of the picture (0 to +12).
  • Gamma Correction: Detailed adjustments of the picture's brightness (-4 to +4).
  • Hue (color tone): Adjusts the balance between the green and red (-6 to +6).
  • Chroma Level: Adjusts the density of the colors (-6 to +6).
  • Setup Level: Adjusts the black area of the image (0 IRE, 7.5 IRE)

Slow Forward Playback: The unit allows Slow Forward Playback in three different speeds (1/8, 1/4. 1/2x) for BD-video, DVD-video, DVD-VR, AVCHD, and DivX discs. Sound is muted during this function.

Resume Playback: This function allows you to resume playback from the point at which the playback has been stopped on the disc even if the power to unit is turned off.

Marker: You can mark electric reference points on a disc to view at a later time. This feature allows you to assign a specific point on a title or track to be called back later. You can mark up to 12 points.

Zoom: The player allows you to magnify an image on-screen 1.2x, 1.5x, 2x, or 4x that of normal size and then allows you to pan through that zoomed image. This function is possible on DVD-video, DVD-R/RW, JPEG and DivX discs.

Angle: Some BD and DVD discs contain scenes which have been shot simultaneously from various angles. This player allows you to select from these different camera angles.

HDMI Control: When a TV supporting HDMI control is connected to the UD5007 via an HDMI cable, it is possible to use the television's remote control to perform such operations as: power on/off, function switching, and volume adjustment.

Marantz Remote App: Marantz offers a remote app you can download to control the UD5007 using your Apple iOS device or Android-based device, when using the player in conjunction with a compatible Marantz network A/V receiver. Download the free Marantz Remote App from the iTunes App Store for the iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad (iOS 4.3 or later). Or, download the free Marantz Remote App from the Android Market for your compatible Android device (1.5-up). Your Marantz network AV receiver and Blu-ray player will need to be connected to the same network as your Apple iOS or Android device.

Remote In/Out: These RCA input/output connectors allow you to connect the UD5007 to a Marantz component equipped with remote control (RC-5) terminals.

Flasher Input/Output: This 3.5mm input/output is used to control the UD5007 from an external key-pad (sold separately).

Solid BD player

Written By Rob, Albuquerque on Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It's tricky to review a Bluray player at the mid-price point. With prices for BD ranging from $89 to $1200 and up, it's fair to ask what the differences really are. It's hard to argue that the UD5007 produces a picture significantly better than an inexpensive player costing much less...especially if you are not watching on a very large, top-quality screen. On the other hand, the picture is on a par with my Oppo BDP-95, which costs twice as much.

At this price point, I think you are paying for build quality, and while the UD5007 isn't a high-end product, it has a solid feel. Loading times are just a little slow, but not bad.

If you have other Marantz components and want the look of matching components, or the convenience of interchangeable remotes, this is a good choice.
Pros:
Solid look and feel
Cons:
More expensive than some alternatives

Worth the money!

Written By BillJr, West Central Florida on Saturday, April 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
You can by an inexoensive blu ray player from and endvap at your local department store these days ... but, if you want one that has phenominal sound reproduction, fast queuing during start up, FF, and chapter skips, then spend the money on this unit. Marantz continues to deliver obvious benefits from their investment in R&D with this player. In addition to the sound quality, the menuing is nice for accessing Netflix, Youtube, Hulu, etc and requires very little time to be come familiar with the user interface.
Pros:
Great sound! Very fast! Nice graphical menu for installed app access
Cons:
None

Nice player - compatible with my otherwise obsolete stereo.

Written By Brent, Richland, Wa on Saturday, April 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My old DVD player croaked, leaving me without a way to play disks of any kind. The only thing I own with HDMI inputs is my TV which does an awful job decoding audio from HDMI. All sound in my system is handled by an old analog Onkyo 8522 stereo receiver. So, I was looking for a Bluray/CD player with analog RCA outputs which almost uniquely limited to this unit these days. No problem. The sound from the audio output is somewhat better than from the old cheap DVD audio out and in a whole different league than analog audio out of the TV for signal that came in from, say, the Apple TV on HDMI. I prefer the interface to Netflix and and HULU on the Apple TV, but the difference in sound quality far outweighs that slight preference. I almost never use the Apple TV anymore. I do miss the convenience of airplay, but the sound just sucks (because I have to use the TV as a decoder). This review may be irrelevant if you have a modern receiver that handles HDMI audio well - any number of less expensive players have similar features and can send digital signal off somewhere else for decoding, but if you need (or just want) high quality 2ch analog audio out then this is for you.
Pros:
High quality 2ch analog outputs keeps your old obsolete stereo in play.

Marantz UD5007

Written By West County Audiophile, Manchester, MO on Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As to be expected, the Marantz UD5007 is excellent in form and function,as well as, sound and picture quality. I purchased the unit for its primary functions of playing music and movies on disc - whatever disc I happen to select. This unit is a nice compliment to my other Marantz components.
Pros:
Great sound and picture. Easy to connect and operate.
Cons:
none that I have found

Meets My Needs

Written By Gulfvet, Boston, MA on Friday, April 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This multi media player meets my needs. I wanted a player capable of playing SACD as well as CD, DVD and Blu-Ray and this one does it well. It compliments the styling of my other Marantz equipment.
Pros:
SACD, CD, DVD, Blu-Ray compatable. Nice design
Cons:
Unloading is cumbersome.

Too bad...

Written By Frank S., Clifton Park, NY on Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When this machine worked, it was great. However, I was in contact with Marantz several times about this unit and I was not impressed. The first phone call (first month of ownership) was brought on because the unit liked to freeze up during streaming or when exiting NetFlix in particular. I did a full reset on the machine and it got better, not perfect but better.

A few weeks later I have more issues. If I had a Blu-Ray already in the machine and I turn it on, it would auto start the disc. The UD5007 would sometimes respond to the remote/faceplate commands to STOP. several times it would just keep on going at just not respond to the remote or faceplate. I would have to shut the unit back down and restart and hope it would respond this time.

Yesterday was the deal breaker. I put in a brand new CD (BB King Live in Japan), sounded very distorted and started to skip around... I figure it's the new CD that's the problem. I bring it upstairs to another CD player and it plays fine, bring it my car and fine... Put it back in the Marantz and it played fine. Swapped CD's to John Lee Hooker's Serve You Right to Suffer and it does the same thing. It was acting WAY to similar to my old DV7600 that had nonstop issues.

Marantz was of little help... Crutchfield made it painless to return this unit for a full refund and I'm going with an Oppo unit.
Pros:
Looks great and when it works, is a great machine
Cons:
Poor build quality and just as poor customer service form Marantz... It's a shame, this could have been a great player.

what is the difference between the UDC5007 and 7007? Price is quite a bit different but they seem to support the same items. [ Steve  Dec 30, 2013 ]
3 answers
  • Depending on what you want to spend. For all practical reasons , the 5007 would do you just fine. [ GARY   Jan 07, 2014 ]
  • Not much, love the 5007 and the price point. Dennis [ DENNIS E   Jan 04, 2014 ]
  • From comparing the spec sheets, the 7007 has more outputs. It has 2 HDMI ports where the 5007 has one, component inputs and coaxial input where the 5007 has none. The 5007 is a nice unit - exceptional audio quality. [ MARK   Dec 31, 2013 ]
