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.

Simply Amazing!

Written By Brad Z., South Carolina on Monday, August 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You wouldn't think that replacing one BluRay player with another would be That big of a difference. But this Sony unit is absolutely nothing short of Amazing! Hands down, a Great Buy. I have a 55" 4K Sony TV and they go Great together!!

Pros: I like Everything about this player. Some don't seem to like the size of the remote as it is about 1/2 the size of a standard remote, but I actually LIKE that it's smaller. VERY simple to use and can easily tell it from all the other remotes I have, quick glance and I know which remote to grab!

Cons: Absolutely NONE here.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Sony BDP-S7200 player works great for us. We have played standard DVD, HD, and 3D disks. We could not have done better than this. We use this player with our Sony Bravia 55" t.v.

Pros: Easy to setup and use. Super video and sound.

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this bluray player from Sony and it's a really good player. Picture & Audio quality is amazing and built quality is also the best Sony has made in recent memory. For $199 it's a great deal, I wanted to get the OPPO BDP-103 for $509 but I don't think it's worth it as of now because 4K BluRay is around the corner. Go get one until it's on sale, you will love it :)

Pros: Superb Audio & Video Great built quality

Cons: None so far

SONY is still the Best!

Written By LarryT, Schaumburg, Illinois on Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sony provides a knock out punch on this great BDP-S7200 Blu-ray unit! It has it all with great upscaling and fast streaming for internet movies on Vudu and Netflix and of course the best picture quality and sound on blu-ray movies as well. It's always all in the ingredients and Sony has one of the best processors in the industry for their TV's and Blu-ray players. ( Besides, who came out with the first Blu-ray? SONY did.) This unit is a little more expensive than the average player in the market, but its worth every penny for its internet speed for movie streaming and its Blu-ray / 3D picture quality along with Sony's Triluminous Color and a 4K upscale as well. Don't waste your money on cheap units that don't give you the performance for today's movies and internet connectivity that's required for picture quality. Buy this Sony Blu-ray player and you'll not regret your choice of performance or picture quality that it gives you.

Pros: Best picture and sound for both streaming movies and playing blu-ray movies. Internet is extremely fast because of Sony's Dual Core Processor for HD and HDX movies on Vudu / Netflix which displays an outstanding quality picture every time!

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy setup and plays and sounds decent. Only problem is that unit freezes up and has to be unplugged to be reset frequently. This is second unit I have had that does this. Crutchfield replaced first unit so I have no problem with their service. Going to put this in grandkids room and buy Better unit for my system

Pros: Fine when working

Cons: Has to be unplugged and reset constantly .

Pros: Easy to use

Frozen Images

Written By pg, Lubbock, Texas on Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The unit failed to read Blu-ray disks, or would freeze during a playback. It also failed to read older DVD disks.

Pros: There are no "Pros" for the unit, it failed the first time we wanted to use it. It would consistently fail on several different disks. The only "Pro" was the service from Crutchfield.

Cons: The unit did not work.

Good Unit

Written By Couchpotato45, Florida on Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this unit a few moths ago and so far so good

Pros: Built in wifi along with Netflix and all other internet streaming options as well as internet radio. Great picture quality

Cons: I gave this 4 stars because this is suppose to be Sony"s flagship player but the remote is very small and very cheap feeling. Its something like that would come out of the dollar section at a junk store. The front display is cheesy looking

Great player

Written By JoeW, United States on Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great player, I do not use the streaming capabilities just discs. Sound and picture are excellent. Had Panasonic players and they would not bookmark a location when turned off but the Sony does and returns to it. Loads Blu-ray discs very quickly. Only oddity is it can vibrate when the player is off and a disc left in. This vibration is enough to be noticeable.

Pros: Quick to load and delivers on picture and sound.

Cons: Vibrates with disc in player and off.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought to match my Sony 5.1 receiver and they work great together, as the BD player turns the receiver on and selects the input. Great picture and sound. Have not checked out streaming capabilities as of yet. Extremely easy to hook up

Pros: great picture and sound, easy hook up

Cons: Would have liked an analog output for CD playback, and the remote could have been a little bigger.

Sony BDP-S7200

Written By JNT, the Washington, DC Area on Monday, January 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great quality picture but not good for streaming. The 5200, 6200, and 7200 all have a common anomaly that's been recognized by Sony on their site - they don't play well with Netflix. In other words, they tend to occasionally freeze up on Netflix. I have had all three models and they all did the same thing. Had to unplug them to get them working again. I gave up on the model for streaming.

Pros: Great picture quality; used in conjunction with an LG 65" UDH and Marantz SR6008.

Cons: Pricey. Tends to freeze up sometimes when streaming; have to unplug and replug to get it working again.

Great DVD player! I don't have 4K so I cannot comment on the conversion but BluRay discs and standard DVD discs play great! Very easy to install and configure. The sound is great!

Pros: Easy of use - easy installation and configuration - seamless integration with internet/Wi-Fi for Netflix

Cons: None that I have seen so far

No regrets

Written By Anonymous, Southern NJ on Friday, December 26, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the most expensive player sold by Sony when I got it. I was considering the other options but chose this one for the 4k and the appearance. I don't like the looks of the diamond shaped models. I am glad I spent the extra money for this player. It is fast and looks great with my 4k TV. The Internet features work better than the built in TV functions.

Wrks great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great so far! I am setting up a system with a smart remote app and I originally ordered a BluRay that didn't allow for IP access, this player works great. Picture quality is awesome, and a lot of extra apps and features.

Pros: Great for IP access (remote on/off and control)

Cons: None so far

Written By DVD Willy, Haymarket, VA on Saturday, August 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have never seen a better picture on my 92" screen, period. Insofar as I can tell, there are no processing artifacts in the 4K upscale. The audio is flawless. Have not really played with the streaming that much, but seems rock solid. I will quality that by saying that I am using wired Ethernet, so I don't know how well the wireless functions.

Pros: PQ, AQ, streaming. $100 rebate.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Disc & USB Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The Sony BDP-S7200 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-ROM, BD-3D, BD-R, BD-RE
DVD DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, Super Audio CD

Blu-ray Disc: Blu-ray  disc is a next-generation, optical disc format the enables the ultimate high-definition entertainment experience. Blu-ray disc provides these key features and advantages

  • 1080p Video Resolution: Blu-ray disc delivers full 1080p video resolution to provide pristine picture quality.
  • 25GB/50GB Capacity: Blu-ray disc offers up to 5x the capacity of standard DVDs; 25GB for single layer disc and 50GB for dual layer disc.
  • 7.1ch Audio: Blu-ray disc provides as many as 7.1 channels of native, uncompressed surround sound for crystal-clear audio entertainment.
  • Enhanced Interactivity: Enjoy such capabilities as seamless menu navigation, bonus features, and network/internet connectivity.
  • DVD Compatible: Blu-ray disc players enable you to continue to view and enjoy your existing DVD library.

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-S7200 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.

SACD: Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range - some 64 times higher resolution then CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just cannot hear on a normal CD.

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-S7200 Blu-ray player contained firmware version M21.R.0112 with an immediate update for firmware version M21.R.0116 (as of 7/30/2014). Visit the Sony eSupport Site for the latest firmware update information.

Dual USB Ports:  The front- and rear-panel USB (type-A) ports allow 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 ports also allow 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).

Compatible Audio/Video/Photo Formats: The Sony Blu-ray disc player supports playback of the following audio/video/photo files recorded on BD-R/RE, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs; plus compatible USB memory devices.

Media Format File Type
Audio MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC
Video AVCHD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, WMV9, XVID
Photo JPEG, GIF, PNG, MPO

Video Section

HDMI (ver.1.4): The BDP-S7200's HDMI (v.1.4) 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, 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.

4K Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S7200 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your Blu-ray and DVD discs, as well as network and USB streaming content. Output options include Auto (highest resolution accepted by the TV), 4K, 1080p (60 Hz video or 24 Hz), 1080i, or 720p. If necessary the output resolution can also be set to 480p or 480i.

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-S7200 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-S7200 Blu-ray player incorporates Sony's Triluminos Color technology to create a heightened sense of depth and incredibly true, natural shades of colors. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better too, with natural skin tones.

3D-Ready w/ 2D-3D Conversion: The Sony BDP-S7200 lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. 3D viewing requires compatible 3D content, 3D-ready HDTV, 3D emitter and glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (supporting at least 10.2 Gbps) connection. The Sony BDP-S7200 can also convert 2D (two-dimensional) video content into simulated 3D (three-dimensional) video when connected to a 3D-ready TV, with 3D-glasses. You can make adjustments to the 3D image depth.

Deep/x.v. 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.  The BDP-S7200 also supports x.v.Color, meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs when they become available in the future.

Screen Settings: The Sony BDP-S7200 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 Size: For 3D viewing, you will need to set the screen size of your 3D-compatible TV.
  • 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-S7200 offers the following video adjustments:

  • Picture Quality Mode: You can select from 3 preset pictures settings (Direct, Brighter, Theater, Auto, or Custom) for different lighting environment. The Custom mode lets you adjust the contrast, brightness, color, and hue manually.
  • Texture & Contrast Remaster: Texture Remaster adjusts the sharpness and detail of the edges, while Contrast Remaster automatically arranges the black and white levels so that the screen is not too dark and the image is modulated.
  • Super Resolution + Smoothing: Super Resolution improves the overall resolution of picture. Smoothing reduces on-screen banding by smoothing gradations on flat areas.
  • Clear Black: Adjusts the display of the dark elements of the image. All shading is not suppressed; it allows beautifully reproduced black tones.
  • Noise Reduction: BNR reduces the mosaic-like block noise in the picture, MNR reduces minor noise around the picture outlines (mosquito noise), and I/P NR Pro improves picture quality of streamed content.

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-S7200 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: Dolby Digital Plus was developed as an extension to Dolby Digital. The audio coding technology supports 7.1 channel surround sound. 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.
Note: Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD are only output via the player's HDMI output.

DTS Neo:6: This surround sound setting outputs simulated multichannel sound from 2 channel sources via the player's HDMI output.

DSEE: The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) upscales compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA) to CD quality. Restoring the high-range sound lost in the compression process, DSEE reproduces digital music in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.

Digital Audio Outputs: The BDP-S7200 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.

Audio Settings: The BDP-S7200 allows you to adjust the following audio settings:

  • AV SYNC: Synchronize the picture and sound by delaying the audio output in relation to the picture output; 0 to 120 milliseconds.
