Here's some very good Panasonic UB9000 news.... As you all know I work closely with Panasonic and we are factory direct dealers. We wanted to hit a price point that would be compelling for the enthusiasts to be happy with and to attract new clients to the world of high-end streaming and disc playback. To that end we came up with a launch price of $999. Our dedicated UB9000 web page has more information. Now for some more good news... I mid - end of July I'll have a UB9000 engineering production sample! Hope to see many HTF members and visitors at our showroom to audition Panasonic's new flagship UB9000 BD player.
