Review: Sony UBPX700 Blu-ray Player and HTSD40 Soundbar

Sony Blu-ray Player and Soundbar Review

No TV setup is complete without some added tech thrown in the mix. Whether it’s a soundbar to enhance the audio or a blu-ray player for a wider range of entertainment, these are the things that really ‘make’ a home cinema system. Paired together, the Sony HTSD40 Soundbar and UBPX700 Blu-ray Player create a winning combination and we can’t wait to tell you why!

Give audio the premium treatment with the HTSD40 Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer. Providing crystal clear audio so that you never miss a moment of the action, this 2.1 channel soundbar features virtual surround sound technology to create an immersive soundscape without the need of rear speakers.

Setting up your new soundbar is easy with the choice to connect it to your TV using either an eARC HDMI cable or the optical input. You can also stream your favourite music directly from your smartphone/devices via the Bluetooth compatibility. Combined with the wireless subwoofer, you can expect a richer, deeper bass to build a superior listening experience.

This is further enhanced by the addition of the Sony UBPX700B Blu-ray Player which effortlessly upscales the picture quality to Ultra HD, 4K quality. Bringing dull images to life with deep contrasts and vibrant colour, the UBPX700B includes Dolby Vision and HDR10 technology to provide flawless detail for all of your favourite shows and films. It can even intelligently scale the ultra-wide brightness range of a HDR set into an SDR format to ensure outstanding quality regardless of if you have an SDR TV.

No smart TV? Don’t worry, with this great bit of tech you have access to a wide range of 4K streaming services via the built-in WiFi compatibility. Please bear in mind that many of these, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, will require a subscription for a small extra cost. The streaming doesn’t stop there though! The free Sony Music Centre app will allow you to stream content wirelessly from your Bluray Player to connected speakers and devices around your home.
