French company Reavon has launched a new universal disc player, the UBR-X110. Following on from the UBR-X100, it spins all the discs of its predecessor (UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, DVD Audio, CD) with the addition of SACD. About the only disc format it won't play is HD-DVD, if anyone remembers that.

Previously, if you wanted SACD compatibility from Reavon, you had to step up to the brand's flagship X200.

As well as all these disc formats, it also plays various file formats for music, video and audio. These include FLAC, AIFF, DFF, DSF, JPG, TIFF, MKV and M2TS. That means you can hook up an external drive via USB or DLNA and enjoy your entire media collection using the X110.

SACD aside, it's a very similar proposition to the X100. Connections include dual HDMIs (one for audio/video, and one for audio only), optical, coaxial and Ethernet, while it also supports the Dolby Vision and HDR10 codecs of HDR.

The X110 is available now in Europe, with prices starting around €850 (around £700 / $925 / AU$1200).

    Considering the UBR-X100 is currently selling for £800, there's no way the UBR-X110 is going to retail for just £700.

    Whatever the price, these Reavon's are not worth the money.

    It's a $1,000.00 in the USA, it's a 1,000 Euros from Germany. I can't even see it available from the UK for any price.

    And even if you do have one, you will regret it.

    The buttons on the front are plastic, unresponsive to the touch and loose. There's nothing inside of the unit that warrants the high price tag, the software is riddled with bugs and the unit is noisy in operation.

    If you've bought one, return it whilst you still can and buy Panasonic.

    I bought mine from here:

    If you go through to checkout the price comes down to 850 Euros.

    I had the X100 Reavon and was really impressed by it. The pure Audio button wouldn’t work but apart from that it was great. The new Reavon X110 plays SACDs in surround sound so that’s a bonus over the X100, and it was quiet in operation. I have already been sent a firmware update for the Reavon X110.

    I currently have the Cambridge Audio CXUHD 4K Blu-Ray player and that has been playing me up, it won’t play Back to the Futures in 4K and Gladiator 4K Blu-Ray is all fuzzy. That had no inbuilt sound either it was just a transport. So the Reavon X110 having no inbuilt sound or Dacs doesn’t bother me. I like the Reavon too because it plays all discs in not 4:3 like DVDs a lot of other players won’t do that.

    Panasonic does not play SACD hence why the 9000 is also a rip off.

    You have to sign in to get it for €877.5 including delivery to the UK. And add it to checkout.

    They advertise it on this website too for €850:

    I think it's still nuts to spend this amount for a 4K player.
    Only few will have the setup, calibrated TV, and the rest to notice the difference.
    Then the question is of course, is it "better" or just "different"?
    To me, it's all a bit like the cable scams, buying overpriced cables which even have been "burned-in".
    Whatever they might measure in a review/test later, it's most likely far below any (super-) human could notice.
