What customers say about "Features"
Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player - Black
  • Standard dvds do appear to be better quality although the player I replaced was very old!
  • Upscaling feature for ordinary DVD'S is brilliant. Makes all DVD'S appear in 4k ultra picture.
  • Plays 4k Blu Rays. In 4k definition. Preferably on a 4k telly.
  • Upscaling also seems to be pretty impressive on my set and do not have a premium model.
  • I purchased some UHD Discs and the picture so vivid and striking with the few I have played thus far.
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-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player - Black
  • I connect the player to a soundbar via the HDMI 2 audio output.
  • It also had an HDMI audio out so you can plug in your sound-bar if you have one.
  • Great player so far, very quiet, very simple to set up, comes with 2 hdmi outs, perfect if your av receiver cannot pass Dolby Vision.
  • Two hdmi cables, audio to amp, video directly to tv, and it just worked.
  • Thank goodness for the separate audio-only hdmi out. My UK hi-fi amp/receiver could not handle both standard HD and 4K video signals tho' claiming 4K compatibility.
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.
