What models does this driver support

Note that we only support the UDP800 for IP control as the UDP900 does not have wake-on-lan functionality.

Why is this product so exciting?

The Magnetar Blu-ray players are high end Blu-ray players that take audio and video quality seriously. The UDP900 for example features a Sabre ES9038PRO DAC. This DAC outputs stereo sound via twin balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA outputs. It also outputs surround sound via a 7.1 RCA array. It can also output audio digitally via HDMI, optical or coax.

What cool things can we do with this driver?

The UDP800 model has two-way feedback for IP control. Here are some ideas

  • Automatically select the player as a source when the player turns on.
  • Automate lights to dim or turn off when a movie is playing
  • Automate surround modes based on audio feedback
  • Automate lights turn back on when it is in home menu

Note that feedback is not available via RS232 nor on the UDP900 models.
