Review: SONY UBPX-700B 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player


Guest blog by Helen

I’ve recently got my hands on a new Sony UBPX700B Blu-Ray player so here is my rundown of what Sony’s 4K Blu-Ray player has to offer.

Firstly, this machine hosts HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K Ultra HD. HDR should not be confused with UHD (Ultra High Definition); both HDR and UHD are meant to improve your viewing experience, but they are hugely different technologies. This player also entertains with Dolby Vision, which is a way of mastering and delivering HDR to the home. A HDR10 signal contain up to 100x the brightness of a standard (SDR) signal, massively increasing peak brightness while retaining deep and highly-detailed blacks, for an entirely new viewing experience.  Scenes are brought to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colours. Dolby Vision™ is an HDR solution that creates an incredibly immersive, thrilling and engaging cinematic experience in your home.

4K Video & Music Streaming Service

There are a number of streaming services available in the UK that offer 4K content that you can watch right now, specifically Netflix, Amazon Prime & YouTube. You can access these services through the smart feature that is built in to this machine. The UBP-X700 features advanced upscaling of everything you watch to 4K resolution.  What that means is that every object is sharpened and enhanced, in real time, so you can enjoy enhanced images whilst watching films and movies.

SONY UBPX-700B Connections

The Sony UBPX700B also holds X2 HDMI outputs, Digital Coaxial Output, Ethernet Connection, a USB Port and Built-In Wi-Fi.

Digital music compatible

The UBP-X700 supports a range of music formats, from AAC and PCM audio to 11.2MHz DSD.

Stream, watch and play

Play movies via USB or over your home network. The UBP-X700 supports the most popular video file types so you can watch your favourite films and home movies.

Ultimate disc drive

Play all your CD, DVD and Blu-ray™ collections conveniently with one universal player.

Not only does the Sony UBPX700B accommodate all of these stunning features but you can also download the app to help control your 4K Blu-Ray player; this app is available to download via Apple Store & Google play.
