UBP-X800 – 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Player for uncompromised picture quality

The UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player is the ultimate in cutting edge Ultra HD technology and the finest way to watch your treasured movie collection. This player has been created in partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment to ensure the best possible playback from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs as the creators intended, and with the added benefit of 4K picture quality.

But what is picture without sound? With Hi-res audio playback capability the X800 treats you to audiophile-quality reproduction of any source. DSEE HX™ upscales the original signal’s sampling frequency and bit-depth. You’ll be rewarded with higher fidelity and wider dynamic range to whatever you are listening to and in closer to High-Resolution Audio quality.

Most Blu-ray Disc Players send both audio and video to your TV via the same HDMI output. To ensure that sound quality is uncompromised, the X800 can split audio and video signals, routing them to separate HDMI outputs to reduce electrical cross-interference.

The extraordinary quality is encased in an exceptionally rigid Frame and Beam chassis design that minimises mechanical vibration. On the inside, there is a full complement of audio codec compatibility, letting you enjoy pristine High-Resolution files encoded right up to 192kHz/24-bit and DSD up to 11.2MHz

The X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player utilizes a Sony developed Precision HD drive to help maintain consistent performance with virtually every optical disc format, including DVD Video and DVD Audio; CD and Super Audio CD; and Blu-ray 3D, and BD-ROM media in additional to almost any format available via USB.

The player further incorporates a variety of video codecs that can deliver 4K streaming from video streaming services such as Netflix, along with Sony’s advanced video processing that upscales SD and HD content to near 4K resolution. Additionally, when playing 4K HDR content on a 4K SDR television the X800 utilizes a unique Sony algorithm to reproduce the proper brightness and colour gradations to provide the best picture possible.

Integrated Bluetooth® means you can slip on a pair of wireless headphones for private uninterrupted listening if you want no distractions, while the sound can continue to play from the TV for the rest of the family in the room to relish. For a different scenario, you can pair wireless speakers to the Blu-ray Player to appreciate sounds simultaneously in the front of TV and in places far from TVs depending on where you’ve positioned the wireless speaker.
