A 4K Blu-ray player built for custom installations
Sony created their ES-series UBP-X1100ES Ultra HD Blu-ray player with custom installers in mind, making it better suited for advanced home theater setups. It is designed to make Ultra HD Blu-ray discs look their best with a top-flight 4K Ultra HD TV or 4K projector. Industrial-strength electrical shielding separates the video and audio circuitry for pure picture and sound, and Sony's sturdy frame-and-beam chassis significantly lowers vibration.
This player also features a plethora of digital and analog outputs, so it can fit in with all types of components and gear. It is even compatible with remote home control systems used by custom home theater installers.
High Dynamic Range gives you the richest picture yet
4K Blu-ray discs with High Dynamic Range (HDR) offer the best picture available today. And this ES-series player is ready for them. On compatible Ultra HD TVs (including these from Sony), you'll get deeply detailed picture contrast. The player will serve up the darkest and brightest content side by side — even within the same image.
And if your 4K TV doesn't have HDR? Good news. The UBP-X1100ES uses special "HDR-to-SDR" picture processing to ensure that movies with HDR still pop on a non-HDR screen.
Sound that pulls you into the action
The UBP-X1100ES plays nicely with the best home theater receivers, too. All the top movie sound formats are supported. You can send three-dimensional audio formats like Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X to a compatible receiver via HDMI. You'll get an engaging sound experience that's worthy of the super-crisp images you'll see on your screen.
A true high-res music player, too
Many of our high-end audio customers use a Blu-ray player as the main music source for their home stereo setups. The UBP-X1100ES features top-notch audio circuitry to ensure all your music sounds clear and detailed. It will play CDs, SACDs, and pretty much any audio disc you can throw at it. And the USB port accepts thumb drives you load with music files — even lossless and uncompressed formats, including high-resolution DSD.
Dual-band Wi-Fi means smooth 4K video streaming
Sony Blu-ray players usually offer a decent variety of streaming video services. And this player even offers 4K streaming options, so you can get a better picture from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
Dual-band MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) Wi-Fi gives you the strong connection needed for streaming 4K. Sony designed the built-in Wi-Fi antenna to optimize reception, even on the edge of your wireless network. (Keep in mind, Sony recommends having an internet speed of 25 Mbps or faster for 4K streaming.)
Beam sound to headphones wirelessly via Bluetooth
The UBP-X1100ES has Bluetooth built in, so you can transmit the sound of your movies, shows, and other media to a pair of Bluetooth headphones. This is perfect for late night binge-watching. You can catch all the dialogue and hear all the loud, exciting sound effects without waking everyone up.
This player also features Sony's LDAC technology, which allows the wireless audio signal to retain more detail with compatible Sony speakers and headphones. So when paired with Sony's best Bluetooth headphones, the WH-1000XM3 wireless noise-cancelers, movie soundtracks will come through even clearer.
