Magnetar UDP800



Tony O’Brien spins up a seriously capable new universal 4K Blu-ray player

"Built like a battleship, the UDP800 is a reference-grade universal disc player. It produced outstanding images that outperformed my superb, reference Oppo UDP-203 4K player. While colour reproduction is first-class, where this machine really shines is the sharpness and clarity of the images that it produces. Meanwhile, blacks are deep and inky, devoid of any video noise."

"For a high-quality AV experience, there is still nothing better than Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, especially when delivered by a premium player. Magnetar’s UDP800 is the star you need to illuminate your home theatre, combining DVD, Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray playback with handling of music formats including DVD-A and SACD. Comprehensive user menus and connectivity make this disc-spinner user friendly, while its high-end construction befits the price tag. The UDP800 delivers 4K discs (including Dolby Vision or HDR10+) with pin-sharp detailing and smooth colour gradations via HDMI, but switch to music though its analogue outputs (RCA or XLR) and its performance is equally captivating. The UDP800 is the long-awaited new king of discs."

Universal Disc Player

The UDP800 is a universal disc player, meaning it not only plays 4K blu-ray discs, but it also supports regular blu-rays, 3D blu-rays, DVDs, CDs, SACDs, and even media files with H265 & H264 support.
HDR Technology

The UDP800 supports high dynamic image formats such as Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HDR10 with stunning HDR to SDR conversion, with BT.2020/BT.709/BT.601 colour space support. HDR brings eye-popping brightness, contrast and gorgeous colours to your media, bringing out the full richness of each frame like never before*.

*Display and media must also support HDR formats.

4K Upscaling

With 4K upscaling, the UDP800 can convert low resolution video sources up to 4K 50/60Hz (3840 x 2160) resolution. Four times the resolution of full HD 1080p, enhancing your home video experience.

A Master of Audio

The UDP800 supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS-X, enabling you to enjoy the best panoramic and immersive sound experience.

High Fidelity Lossless Music

In addition, the UDP800 features support for high end audio playback. It can decode DSD64/128, multichannel DSD64, and 192kHz/24-bit PCM formats with FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC and APE file support.

Premium Digital to Analog Converter

For Pure Audio playback, UDP800 specifically adopts a 4-layer PCB circuit board where each channel is designed with independent wiring. Two independent Burr-Brown PCM 1795 DAC processors are used for two-channel D/A decoding, processing left channel and right channel respectively, and high-quality MUSES8920 OP-AMPs for audiophile sound quality.

The UDP800 features stereo XLR gold-plated balanced terminals and stereo RCA gold-plated unbalanced outputs. A bespoke "Pure Audio" mode function is available to bring uncompromised sound quality to music lovers.

High-Power Transformer

MAGNETAR employs a specially selected custom 60W high-power low noise transformer for the UDP800, with a two-stage filter design along with Japanese Rubycon electrolytic capacitors to meet the high transient response required by surround sound systems and high-resolution audio.
Housed in it's own separate metal case to further lower noise levels, providing stability and silence, further improving audio and video quality.

Full Multimedia Experience

The UDP800 supports multiple disc and media formats, such as UHD-BD, BD, BD-R, BD-RE, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, SACD, CD, CD-R/RW. In addition, USB HDDs up to 16TB are supported with direct access from your computer or NAS through your local network using DLNA or SMB protocols.

User Experience Interface

Elegant & Solid Chassis Construction

Achieving exceptional audio and video performance requires high quality chassis construction and stability. The UDP800 provides a brushed aluminium front panel, in a solid highly rigid metal chassis to greatly improve audio and video performance.

With a distinctive double layer chassis structure thickened to 1.6mm and a 3mm steel plate under its base, reducing vibration and generated noise during playback the UDP800 tips the scales at 8kgs!

Additionally, major internal components including the CD mechanism and power supply are independently shielded to reduce external magnetic fields. Simply put, Magnetar is high-end home entertainment at his best.
