What customers say about "Features"
Sony UBP-X1000ES 4k Ultra HD Blu-Ray Player
  • The Sony X1000ES is vastly superior to the X800, it has a 32 bit dac, better build, detachable power cord uprated power supply and sounds as good as my Sony XA5400ES for CD & SACD
  • I bought this to replace a Sony ES 770 that I used for SACD only. I was pleasantly surprised that this actually sounded slightly better than its predecessor.
  • The 4k upscale even makes my 2008 TV look a lot better. Can't wait to add a 4K TV later this year.
  • The interface is snappy, and support for all the latest Blu-ray formats gives you a tiny bit of future proofing.
  • I bought this for it’s SACD and Blu-Ray audio capabilities. The sound is excellent from this unit. Even regular cds sound better. I can hear passages that I never heard from a recording in the past.
Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Very pleased with my UBP-X800 I've had many Blu Ray over the years and this is the best all the features but one you could want.
  • Love the Bluetooth feed for headphones.
  • Top quality blu ray that plays everything from ultra 4K to dvds picture and sound is excellent
  • This player is so solid & looks very well built, lots of features
  • Video quality (and audio with it) great. Firing up a CD really shows off music skills as well - easily a replacement for one box hifi

What customers say about "Outputs"
Sony UBP-X1000ES 4k Ultra HD Blu-Ray Player
  • I inserted the HDMI, Power Plug, turned it on, Connected to WI-FI, went to setup, it told me that an update was available, so I did, then I put in a HD-DVD and I was watching in less that 20 minutes. Super easy to set-up and to get online.
  • The difference from the other players is that this is the premium version of the 4K players. It has a display compared to the others and the other difference is that it has a detachable power cord along with connections for a hifi system.
  • Only Sony can deliver this level of quality for both audio and visual....they dedicated two separate input jacks for this purpose!
  • The best part is that it is the only hi-end player that has a set of analog outputs.
  • In researching this player I found it will output multichannel SACD thru HDMI to appropriate receivers. Plus, it plays 2ch SACDs thru the audio outputs. Excellent!
Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Can load up a USB stick with music as well, all controlled via the app (can also control via TV).
  • It linked to my network immediately and, as such, provides a very reliable connection to the inbuilt apps.
  • Upscales all my music whether from CD or USB to an amazing quality of sound.
  • The ability to play any file types that you offer it from either the usb slot or over your home network is the icing on the cake for me.
  • Great to find 2 HDMI outputs allowing direct video to TV and audio connection to an older receiver that does not support HDR.
