Product Information

Get Closer to Reality

Come home to a more immersive experience with 4K HDR playback, Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound, and access to your favorite 4K HDR streaming services. Built for optimum video and audio performance, this universal Ultra HD player optimizes playback on non-HDR TVs with HDR to SDR conversion, and plays almost any disc or file format.

4K UHD Blu-ray 

Play 4K Ultra HD movies at 4x the resolution of full 1080p HD, letting you watch your favorite scenes with a level of detail and clarity like never before.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Support

HDR allows for a greater range of color contrast and brightness, enhancing details from the original film format. 

Stream in 4K HDR and Play Most Formats

Go far beyond playing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. Stream in 4K HDR from your favorite streaming services and play almost any disc or file format, including most 4K Ultra HD video and Hi-Res Audio formats. All you have to do is decide what to enjoy next. 

4K HDR to SDR Conversion

4K HDR to SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) conversion improves contrast and color for optimized playback and viewing on non-HDR TVs. 

Experience Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Object-Based Surround Sound

With Dolby Atmos 3D and DTS:X object-based surround sound, you’ll feel like you’re inside the action as the sounds of people, music, and objects move all around you in three-dimensional space.

Enjoy Private Viewing with Wireless Headphones

Enjoy Bluetooth audio connectivity so you can use your favorite wireless headphones for private viewing. 

Hear Every Detail with Hi-Res Audio

Similar to the improved quality of going from HD video to 4K, High-Resolution Audio tracks are far higher quality than MP3s and even CDs, letting you hear every breath, every drumbeat, every note. 

Premium Construction for Optimum Audio-Visual Performance

Sony's unique frame-and-beam chassis offers a rigid structure to eliminate micro-vibrations, as well as effective electrical shielding, so all you experience is the highest sound and picture quality. 

Don’t Miss a Sound with Simultaneous HDMI and Bluetooth Connectivity

Send audio via HDMI to a soundbar while sending it to a wireless speaker or headphones over Bluetooth at the same time. With simultaneous connectivity, you don’t have to miss a word or sound even if you step away from your TV. 

Stream Music to Different Rooms

Listen to the same great song all around the house with multi-room listening. Now you can group selected Sony sound bars and speakers together and stream music in multiple rooms.

Sony did it Right!
I am glad I didn't rush out and buy the first batch of 4K players last year from other manufacturers, they have their short comings. Sony waited and brought out the product when it was done correctly. X800 is all I need, I do not need the 1000ES but I am sure that will be even better for those customers who will use its full potential. So far 4K movies and up-scaling are stellar. I have tested out 5 movies some 4K some 1080p and I still haven't used the audio to its fullest yet but that is coming. I can see keeping this player for a long time. The things looks and feels premium. Fast boot up and interface is easy to use. Make sure you turn on your HDMI settings on your TV and the correct hdmi input. This is for every TV manufacturer, don't know why this cant be on by default but that has nothing to do with the player. HDR looks heavenly. Must buy.

Awesome affordable 4K UHD Blu Ray
I just purchased this after waiting for it to hit the market since its announcement. I was not disappointed with this product. Certainly makes my XBR75940C TV so much better. Only con is there is no digital display everything is available on the TV

I replaced a Samsung UBD-K8500 with this player and there is no comparison. The build quality of this player is on an entirely different level. This player loads faster and runs MUCH quieter. PQ from this player is better as well as I have noticed more fine detail and highlights on UHD Blu-ray discs I have watched numerous times before on the Samsung but never noticed, the Sony made those differences noticeable immediately.

I am not surprised as Sony has always made top notch players. All 4 of my standard Blu-ray players throughout the house are Sony's With some 6-7 years old. All work perfectly and are TANKS. I expect the same reliability from this new UHD player. Great job Sony!

Excellent Ultra Blu-ray player!
I bought the ubp-x800 a couple of weeks ago. It's rock solid and very quiet when playing any CD, DVD, Blu-ray or Ultra Blu-ray disk! Awesome images on both BD and UHD movies/videos, and excellent upscaling on DVD's! Audio processing excellent as well. I hope a future firmware update will add YouTube and Pandora to the streaming apps. Thanks Sony!

Just got the unit installed and I must say Picture quality is outstanding. Audio side of the unit seems to be smooth and detailed. No need to wait on the new Oppo at over twice the purchase price, Thank you Sony for producing a very well built and great sounding unit.

Premium Quality for Affordable Price
First of let me say , The first thing you will noticed about UBP X800 is build quality is Top Notch , Built like a TANK and no i'm not kidding , this is the best metal quality i have ever seen on a Player ,Trust me you will never worry about this player skipping disc.Second is The Stealth Quietness when opening the tray and loading the disc , SONY did an Outstanding Job making this player as Stealth as Quiet as F117 Fighter . Now on to the Quality of 4K Blu-Ray Discs, This will entirely depend on what Movie and or Content are you watching , I have only Tested SONY's newly released Passengers , btw an excellent movie with a very positive message at the end Highly Recommended , Quality on bitrate was as Solid as it get's , HDR looks Superb , the vivid detail on Actors and Design of the Ship , is so good you have a sense of Depth of Field , Colors pop naturally and overall it just looks Fantastic. I could spent 4 pages writing just how much of features this player has , and among other things . Bottom line is this , This is hands down the best Premium Quality 4K Blu-ray player for a very Affordable Price . SONY is making all the right Moves this year , 2017 year of SONY.

I've read many reviews and forum comments on the Sony UBP-X800 and at the current price it seems to be the ideal solution for playing occasional 4K Blu-rays.
