Multi-Disc Compatible:The Marantz UD5005 Super Audio CD/Blu-ray
disc player allows playback
of Blu-ray, SACD, DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, and CD discs. The unit supports the
following disc formats: BD-ROM (BD-Video), DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW ,
DVD-Audio, CD, CD-R/RW, and SACD.
Note:This unit uses NTSC, so BD or DVD discs you play
back must be recorded in the NTSC system. You cannot play back BD or DVD
disc recorded in other color systems.
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
- Much 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.
- Compatibility with your current disc collections: 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: 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
AVCHD Playback:The Marantz UD5005 will play home videos
recorded in AVCHD. AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) is a high definition digital video
camera format used to record in high definition or standard definition on a
DivX File Playback:The UD5005 supports playback of
DivX (up to DivX Plus HD). The unit can play back files recorded in the DivX moving
picture compression format on DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW discs. This unit supports DivX
file sizes up to 2 GB.
JPEG Playback:The Super Audio CD/Blu-ray disc player will also playback JPEG
still image files written onto CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW discs. This unit supports
JPEG still image resolutions of 32 x 32 pixels up to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels. The
maximum file size image is 12 MB. The player can recognize up to 999 folders and
999 files. 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 180-degrees,
90-degrees left, or 90-degrees right.
MP3/WMA/AAC Playback:The Marantz Super Audio CD/Blu-ray
disc player will play
back MP3, WMA, and AAC audio files written onto CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW discs. The unit
supports MP3 files with a sampling frequency of 44.1 or 48 kHz and a constant
bit rate of 64-320 kbps. In addition, the unit supports WMA files with the same
sampling frequency and a constant bit rate of 48-192 kbps. The unit also
supports AAC files with the same sampling frequency and a constant bit rate of
16-320 kbps. The player can recognize up to 999 folders and 999 files. Artist
names and song titles can be displayed up to 60 characters.
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).
Parental Control: Parental Control allows you to set a
rating limit, which prevents your children from viewing inappropriate material.
Playback will stop if the ratings exceed the levels you set, and it will require
your to enter a 4-digit password before the disc will play back. The Parental
Control feature consists of an 8-level DVD and 254 BD rating system protected by
a custom user 4-digit password.
High Quality Construction: The Marantz UD5005'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.
