Get the picture

With 4K Ultra HD, video takes a quantum leap forward. Four times the resolution of standard HD means far finer detail – and just as crucial, new HDR and BT.2020 specifications allow for increased color range and greater definition in brightness and shadow.

Makes the best of what you watch

The X1000ES adapts to your needs, automatically upscales basic HD video and down-converts HDR to standard dynamic range, to match the capabilities of your current equipment (while preparing you for the future).

Up, down, all around

The latest 3D surround sound formats from Dolby and DTX are all supported. And dual HDMI outputs allow you to route the digital surround signal to an accessory sound bar or connected surround system.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

With built-in dual band Wi-Fi, you can stream video and audio from online services and your own home system. The X1000ES decodes virtually every music format, from basic MP3 to high-resolution and high-bitrate formats such as AIFF, ALAC and FLAC.

Pristine video streaming

With integrated support for streaming video services such as Netflix and Amazon Video, you can view the latest and greatest 4K HDR movies and series. And high-quality Bluetooth output streaming lets you listen through wireless headphones with clarity and privacy.

Universal acclaim

Over the last couple decades, many types of programming have been saved to the ubiquitous 5-inch optical disc. While any 4K player will handle Blu-rays, the X1000ES is backward-compatible to play nearly every disc in your library. That includes DVD, recordable DVD, CD and recordable CD, DVD-Audio and SACD music discs, home-recorded camcorder video discs, BMPs, GIFs, JPEGs and MP3 files burned to disc. If you own it, odds are the X1000ES will play it.

What Hi-Fi? in its five-star review, said, “Whether you’re looking for an upgrade to your existing Blu-ray player, or simply want the best player you can for your home cinema set-up, (the) UBP-X1000ES is well worth your consideration.” Elevated Standard, indeed.

Stream all around the house

With the free, downloadable Sony Music Center App (for iOS and Android), control wireless multi-room streaming from the X1000ES to connected devices and speaker in every room, or wireless surround in your viewing room.

Connect to everything

You get a full array of connections on the back panel, from USB and Ethernet connections to analog, digital and HDMI outputs. And, with IR remote and RS232C ports plus network and cloud-based remote management, the X100ES is perfect for integrated custom whole-home system installation.

Sony HD 4-K DVD player
I bought this player about a month ago. I payed a bit more for better features like the HD sound. I am so happy I spent a bit more to get all the super benefits.
I am super happy and excited about the 4-K feature for DVD’s. You just can’t believe the quality of the video and the sound. Even Netflix and Amazon screen quality is much better. I could not be happier.

Great 4K player. But not only. Fortunately, it makes a very good sound as well. So, you can play DVD A disks and SACDs both surround and stereo using internal DAC. The only problem I see - unability to install extra apps like Amazon or Tidal in my model.

UBP-X1000ES Has no Dolby Vision Despite its Cost
I purchased the X1000ES expecting it to support all video formats but was left in the cold when Sony introduced the UBP-X1100ES which supports Dolby Vision. No relief for owners of the X1000ES to upgrade to the X1100ES once that new model was available. I also have a $200 UBP-X700 4K player that DOES support Dolby Vision but I use that one in bedroom.

Plays just about anything. SACD's are outstanding. Great picture with blu ray. Well constructed, but I might have expected a more substantial three prong power cord for the money. No info on Dolby Vision thus far.

Is it region free?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2020
  Thanks for your question. After extensive research the UBP-X1000ES is not region free. Apparently a number of units were modified to be region free to be used in custom environments and export. The units were multi voltage which rendered them unusable in some areas of the US.
