Reavon 4K Blu-ray players: the worthy successors of the Oppo 203 and 205?


There is something new in the 4K Blu-ray player market!

Reavon, a brand new brand, comes up against Panasonic and Sony in this field with two new high-end 4K Blu-ray players. Powered by the French group Archisoft which is also behind Zappiti, Reavon could well revive the interest of home moviegoers for physical media.

Have the famous Oppo Blu-ray players found their worthy successors? This is what the very promising spec sheets of the Reavon UBR-X100 4K Blu-ray player and its audiophile counterpart, the Reavon UBR-X200 4K Blu-ray player, suggest.

The Reavon UBR-X100 Blu-ray player plays all Blu-ray discs, video DVDs, SACDs and audio CDs.

The two Reavon 4K Blu-ray players are universal models compatible with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, HD 1080p and 3D Blu-ray discs, video DVDs, SACDs and audio CDs. They can also play audio and video content (MKV, FLAC, DSD, AIFF, MP3, JPG …) stored on an external hard drive or on a USB key, or even shared over the local network via DLNA / SMB protocols. (Samba).

The two Reavon Blu-ray players (here the Reavon UBR-X100) feature a dual HDMI output, one of which is exclusively reserved for audio.

To enjoy your HD and 4K Blu-ray discs in the best conditions with your 4K Ultra HD TV, OLED TV, QLED TV or 4K video projector, the Reavon UBR-X100 and Reavon UBR-X200 4K Blu-ray players offer strong arguments:

  • 4K scaling of Full HD 1080p content, with 4K (3840 x 2160) scaling of all video sources.
  • A 24p True Cinema mode that preserves the original frame rate of the movie as it is projected in movie theaters.
  • Support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision.
  • 36-bit Deep Color / xvColour compatibility
  • Dual HDMI output (one Video / Audio, the other Audio only)
  • The ability to customize video settings (brightness, contrast, color saturation, hues, sharpness and noise reduction).
The Reavon UBR-X200 adopts a more audiophile design, with a large power supply and carefully selected dedicated components.

While these two players share the same video characteristics, the Reavon UBR-X200 4K Blu-ray player offers more in terms of audio to meet the demands of both home moviegoers and audiophiles:

  • Texas Instruments Burr-Brown Audio PCM1690 DAC
  • Large Capacity PCB Toroidal Transformer
  • Audiophile capacitors
  • “Pure Audio” function
  • Stereo analog audio output (unbalanced RCA, balanced XLR)
  • 7.1 / 5.1 analog audio output
The Reavon UBR-X200 audiophile Blu-ray player features balanced XLR audio outputs.

These little wonders could be released next April, with prices around €800 for the Reavon UBR-X100 and €1,600 for the Reavon UBR-X200, subject to confirmation by the manufacturer.

Enough to fully enjoy the newly released 4K Ultra HD version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy!
