Our take on the Sony BDP-S3200

by Jeff Miller
Sony

Blu-ray Disc players — the ultimate picture and sound

Blu-ray players deliver a better picture to your HDTV than any other available source. In fact, Blu-ray's 1080p picture is a perfect match for the 1080p screens found on most current TVs. Blu-ray movies also offer the most precise and realistic surround sound you can get. These players do a terrific job with standard DVDs, too — you'll see a cleaner, clearer picture with every disc in your collection. Many Blu-ray players can connect to the Internet for watching online movies from Netflix® and other video services.

Easy wireless setup

Forget the clunky, sluggish streaming experience of years ago. Connecting to your home Wi-Fi network is faster and simpler than ever with Sony's BDP-S3200 Blu-ray player. Its easy-to-navigate menu and built-in Wi-Fi combine to speed everything up. The Quick Start/Load feature will have you watching in mere moments, whether you're streaming your favorite show or playing a movie on a Blu-ray disc. The BDP-S3200 offers over 200 online apps to choose from, including Netflix®, YouTube™, HuluPlus™ and Amazon Instant Video.

Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The BDP-S3200 is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Firmware Updates: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet. Occasionally, Sony may release updated firmware for this unit that may add or improve the way a feature operates. These updates are available free of charge. This unit is capable of checking the firmware automatically when connected to the Internet via broadband connection.

Note: The tested Sony BDP-S3200 Blu-ray player contained firmware version M14.R.0047 with an immediate update for firmware version M14.R.0071 (as of 2/19/2014). Visit the Sony eSupport Site for the latest firmware update information.

USB Port:  The front-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to play photo, videos, and music files on a connected USB device. The player can recognize Mass Storage Class (MSC) Devices that are FAT-compatible and Still Image Capture Devices (SICD) class devices. The player can recognize up to 500 folders/files. The USB port also allows you to enjoy additional content (such as BonusView) on certain Blu-ray Disc titles. Some BD-ROMs have bonus content and other data which can be downloaded to an inserted USB Flash Drive (minimum 1 GB recommended, sold separately).

Photo JPEG, GIF, PNG

Video Section

HDMI (ver.1.3): The BDP-S3200's HDMI (v.1.3) output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.

Note: This player does not offer any analog audio/video outputs.

Precision Cinema HD Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S3200 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your standard DVDs. Output options include Auto (highest resolution accepted by the TV), 1080p (60 Hz video or 24 Hz), 1080i, or 720p. If necessary the output resolution can also be set to 480p or 480i. You can also choose to bypass the Blu-ray player's scaler, so the source material's original resolution is passed to your connected TV.

24p Output: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second the BDP-S3200 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

Triluminos Color: The BDP-S3200 Blu-ray player incorporates Sony's Triluminos Color technology to provide a wider color gamut with rich, authentic color and a far more natural viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth.

Deep Color: The Sony Blu-ray player supports a color depth of up to 12 bits. Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting it to a TV that does not support Deep Color. The Deep Color function can be set to 10-bit, 12-bit, Auto, or Off. 

Screen Settings: The Sony BDP-S3200 features the following screen settings:

  • TV Type: You can select a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected Television's screen aspect ratio.
  • Screen Format: You can select the display configuration for a 4:3 screen picture on a 16:9 wide screen television. You can choose Full or Normal (select when connected to a TV with a wide mode function; displays a 4:3 screen picture in 16:9 aspect ratio even on a wide-screen TV) or Normal (changes the picture size to fit the screen size with the original picture aspect ratio).
  • DVD Aspect Ratio: You can select the display configuration for playback of 16:9 screen pictures on a 4:3 screen TV. You can select from Letter Box or Pan & Scan.

Video Settings: The BDP-S3200 offers the following video adjustments:

  • Picture Quality Mode: You can select from 3 preset pictures settings (Standard, Brighter, Theater) for different lighting environment.
  • BNR: Reduces the mosaic-like block noise in the picture.
  • MNR: Reduces minor noise around the picture outlines (mosquito noise)
  • I/P Noise Reduction: Improves the picture quality of Internet entertainment.

Cinema Conversion Mode: The Sony Blu-ray player offers two Cinema Conversion Modes - (1) Auto mode automatically detects whether the material is video-based or film-based, and switches to the appropriate conversion method. (2) The Video mode is suited for video-based material and will always be selected regardless of the content.

BonusView: The BonusView feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.

Audio Section

Surround Sound Decoders: The BDP-S3200 has built-in Dolby Digital and DTS surround processors; multi-channel PCM Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio are output through the HDMI jack (when encoded on the Blu-ray Disc).

Dolby Digital Plus also includes the standard Dolby Digital bit stream and is compatible with all current Dolby Digital processors using the coaxial digital output.
  • Dolby TrueHD: Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel surround sound for the next generation optical discs. The reproduced sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.
  • DTS-HD High Resolution Audio: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio supports a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multi-channel surround. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with a lossy compression.
  • DTS-HD Master Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps and uses lossless compression (Lossless), and DTS-HD Master Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.

Digital Audio Outputs: The BDP-S3200 is equipped with a coaxial (RCA) digital output. The Audio menu allows you to select the digital audio format that is passed through the coaxial digital output. Settings allow you to transfer Dolby Digital and/or DTS sound tracks, or down-mix surround bitstreams to 2-channel PCM audio.

Sony BDP-S3200 DVD PLAYER

Written By Anonymous, Denver CO on Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great piece of hardware -- especially the wireless feature -- which seems to be better for watching youtube than our relatively new PC. However the documentation definitely needs a workover i.e., written by users and not the Sony tech people. For its customers, Crutchfield needs to include a short flyer which has all the info/links on how to co-ordinate your now "internet TV per Sony DVD" with a tablet such as ipad. What are the trusted apps that we can use so that we can control internet tv from our mobile device(s)?

Well, this is an odd device

Written By J.R., Maple Shade NJ on Sunday, August 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Priced correctly, but no photo of the rear of the unit when I ordered it. Vola, it only has HDMI and COAX outputs, which is Okay for a Sound Bar, not for a Computer. So, I acquired a PCI Sound card for my HP Evo D510 CMT PC (specifically a Diamond Xtreme Sound 7.1/24 bit Sound Card) and after quite a few tries to obtain the correct drivers for both Windows XP and Windows 8 I got it to work using the S/PDIF interface.
Pros:
Plays all standard Bluray, DVD content and Streaming in DTS/Dolby HD 5.1
Cons:
No 3D, no 4K no Composite Video, no L/R audio outputs.

Written By Eric, Chappaqua, NY on Thursday, August 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Didn't really use it that much. Its shape is ridiculous. It has a dome so that you can't place it underneath anything. Originally purchased for its "Smart" features but its built in wifi only supports 2.4gHz, The blu ray player it was to replace is a couple of year old Sony player which works well but doesn't have the smart features. The older model is built like a brick, the new one is very light and very fragile feeling. I just replaced the TV with a smart TV instead and this blu ray player will collect dust as a back up.
Pros:
Nothing
Cons:
Odd domed shaped makes it impossible to stack. Does not support 5gHz wifi.

Great little device. Mainly use for Netflix. Highly recommend.

Disappointing

Written By Leo, Brighton, CO on Monday, July 21, 2014
 
Audio and Video quality were what I expected but the ergonomics and documentation are extremely poor. I would consider taking a pass on this unit.
Pros:
Plays multiple formats and has internet connectivity.
Cons:
1. Extremely poor documentation with a non-user friendly interface negates many of the features including Internet. 2. Could not get the IOS remote App to work

Written By JLBS, Toa Baja, PR on Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The BDP-S32 is a good buy for the features. It's small size makes it great to place just about anywhere. Apart from not having analog audio outputs, this player does the same thing and more, than the older player which I replaced with the BDP-S32. Only draw back is that I had to move it around in order to find that perfect spot for strongest reception of the WiFi signal. I did not have that problem with my older Sony player. Regardless, I recommend the BDP-S32. Is a great buy at a good price.
Pros:
Small size makes it easy to place.
Cons:
Not too great for WiFi reception. No Analog (RCA) Audio output.

New life for disc player

Written By Parshooter, San Francisco, CA on Monday, June 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
For only a bit more money than a pure, data streaming device, you can have a new DVD/Blu-ray box that also functions as your video streamer. This one works well for Amazon Prime, Netflix and the others. I recognized our wifi quickly and streams well even though our ATT DSL is not very fast.

With streaming taking over for video, this function gives new life to a dying product category.
Pros:
Small, powerful and inexpensive.
Cons:
None that I can see.

So far so good. I haven't used this unit a ton yet, but it was easy to setup on my wifi network, easy to navigate to Netflix, etc and plays both DVD's and BlueRay fine. Good unit for the money.

BDP-S3200, the "S" stands for SUPER

Written By nelsobf, near Raleigh, NC on Sunday, June 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Small package, big features! When I opened the box i surprised by the size but once i set it up, in just minutes...wow! The WIFI worked perfectly, I hooked up with Netflix, Amazon, etc. in no time (though wouldn't it be nice if there was voice command rather than using the remote to put in passwords, etc?) and pretty quickly my sweetie and i were watching tv like it was the 21st century! oh and speaking of my sweetie, she just loves the way this machine works which means super bonus points for yours truly! Thanks Crutchfield! you done did it again!
Pros:
intuitive set up, quick connection, and download. Plays blu ray discs perfectly and streams on line movies without hesitation.
Cons:
using the remote to key in passwords, etc. can be tedious but once you're done...sit back and enjoy!

SONY BR/DVD player BDP-S3200

Written By Jim, Monroe, NY on Monday, May 26, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Needed Sony compatible BR/DVD player that would use SONY sync feature to allow one remote operation with my current Sony HDTV. Also wanted compact unit and fast operation. This unit met all my expectations and had a quick operation of playing my DVDs.
Pros:
Very compact unit, easy cable hookup, Sync operation works great with the small remote supplied. This allows a quick and easy return to my cablevision (Optimum) remote use. It has built in wifi for easy update of this player and offers many services. I haven't tried any of these features yet. Reasonably priced and good service and reliably shipped quickly and on time. After using this unit I bought a second one for my other large screen HDTV too.
Cons:
No complaints so far

Sony bdp s3200

Written By Anonymous, Canton, NC on Thursday, May 15, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Best bdp out there. If you don't need or want 3D, don't pay extra for it! This player does it all well. I wish it was wireless AC compatible but the competing brands aren't either. I love the size and features and preferred this Sony over the Panasonic, LG or Samsung. Crutchfield had the best price I could find and I have bought from them before with excellent results! Free and FAST shipping!! Very pleased with both the Sony AND Crutchfield!
Pros:
Easy to set up and operate. Excellent wireless N performance.
Cons:
Haven't found any yet.

Blu-ray

Written By FRH, Concord, NC on Saturday, May 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this model so we could get content from Prime if we wanted to.
Pros:
Worked great right out of the box. Setup was great. Netflix more of a chore, but that was a Netflix problem
Cons:
The instruction manual was so minimal. We thought about training the Sony remote to control our TV, but that would have meant going online and doing some research.

My husband was so frustrated with his player, so I did research to find a good one. This DVD player was a birthday present and he LOVES it! It's easy to operate and much more user friendly than the one we had.
Pros:
Easy to assemble and works perfectly!
Cons:
Plug in cord too short. We needed an extension.

Everything I Was Expecting

Written By KeithS, Highlands Ranch, CO on Saturday, March 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Combines a blu-ray player with streaming programs from the internet. Previously had NetFlix on a Roku device in the upstairs bedroom that wasn't getting much use, but now that we can get NetFlix in the family room I am certain it will get much more use. My grandson loves Thomas and Friends and we get hours of uninterrupted Thomas with the new device.
Pros:
Built-in WiFi for Streaming from the web.
Cons:
Not really a con, but the device is not much bigger than the Roku device and has the blu-ray player as a plus.

What connection do I need to purchase to be able to connect it to my HD TV?? [ Norma  Jul 21, 2014 ]

  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The only video output on the Sony Bluray would be an HDMI connection and that would be the type of cable you would need. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Jul 22, 2014 ]
