About the Sony UBP-X800M2

Sony stays focused on the best 4K picture quality

With all the on-demand video content out there, I'm so glad to see that Sony is still dedicated to the 4K Blu-ray format. Their UBP-X800M2 Ultra HD Blu-ray player is the sequel to one of our top-sellers in this category. While 4K streaming looks fantastic, Ultra HD Blu-ray discs continue to deliver the absolute best picture possible for a 4K Ultra HD TV or 4K projector

The Sony UBP-X800M2 4K Blu-ray player has a frame-and-beam chassis for less vibration.

Sony stays focused on the best 4K picture quality

With all the on-demand video content out there, I'm so glad to see that Sony is still dedicated to the 4K Blu-ray format. Their UBP-X800M2 Ultra HD Blu-ray player is the sequel to one of our top-sellers in this category. While 4K streaming looks fantastic, Ultra HD Blu-ray discs continue to deliver the absolute best picture possible for a 4K Ultra HD TV or 4K projector

While Sony probably could've released a flimsy disc spinner and called it a day, they've instead chosen to go all in. This solidly built home theater component will serve up Ultra HD Blu-ray discs with their full 4K resolution and wide, vivid color spectrum. The UBP-X800M2 also plays pretty much any other movie and music disc or digital file out there — and yep, it will even stream Netflix® in 4K.

High Dynamic Range gives you a realistic, high-contrast picture

4K Blu-ray discs with High Dynamic Range (HDR) feed your compatible TV an incredibly lifelike, vibrant picture. And the UBP-X800M2 is ready for them. The player will serve up the darkest and brightest content side by side — even within the same image — on a compatible Ultra HD TV.

Plus, more and more modern directors are shooting in natural light to give their films a more authentic look. But with the wrong TV equipment, darker scenes can be harder to see and follow (perhaps you remember the brouhaha concerning the final Game of Thrones season). With this player, you'll get deeply detailed picture contrast on your 4K TV with HDR, so you can see the nuance within shadowy and dimly lit scenes.    

Sound that pulls you into the action

All the top movie sound formats are supported, too. You can send three-dimensional audio formats like Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X to a compatible receiver via HDMI. This gives you a home theater 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-X800M2's top-notch audio circuitry will 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.

Sony UBP-X800M2 with Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones

Send movie audio wirelessly to a pair of Bluetooth headphones like the top-selling Sony WH-1000XM3 (sold separately).

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 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-X800M2's built-in Bluetooth 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.

Disc & USB Compatibility

Quality Construction: Made from quality materials for improved sound quality, the Disk Drive and Heat Sink and keep your discs and the chassis of the UBP-X800M2 cool, for extended viewing hours. The player's unique frame-and-beam chassis offers a rigid structure to eliminate micro-vibrations, as well as effective electrical shielding, so all you experience is the highest sound and picture quality.

Disc Compatibility: The Sony UBP-X800M2 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types.

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray UHD BD-ROM, BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE
DVD DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, SACD

Ultra HD Blu-Ray: Ultra HD Blu-ray provides these key features and advantages over standard Blu-ray.

  • 4K Resolution: Ultra HD Blu-ray supports resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels. That's 4x as many pixels as Full HD televisions, and 27x as many pixels as Standard Definition televisions
  • Wider Color Gamut: Ultra HD Blu-ray can display over 75% of the visible color spectrum; this is known as "Wider Color Gamut". That's more than twice the color range of current HDTVs.
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range): Ultra HD Blu-ray also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) video. Dynamic range is the difference between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks on screen. HDR means that scenes with high contrast can be shown with much greater clarity and detail.
  • Smooth, Realistic Motion: Ultra HD Blu-ray supports progressive frame rates of 24, 25, 50 and 60 frames a second, enabling smoother, more realistic motion.
  • Greater Capacity & Speed: Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs will be available in a dual layer 66 gigabyte disc and a triple layer 100 gigabyte disc. Ultra HD Blu-ray can stream video up to a maximum of 108/128 Mbps for 66Gb and 100Gb discs.
  • Backward Compatible: Ultra HD Blu-ray players will play all current Blu-ray Disc & DVD content. When connected to a current HDTV television, the player will output a standard HDTV signal. Ultra HD Blu-ray players will support existing Blu-ray media, as well as provide down conversion and HDR to SDR conversion functionality to match the connected television's capabilities.

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

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).

Compatible Audio/Video/Photo Formats: The Sony UHD 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 AIFF /ALAC /FLAC / WAV (up to 24-bit/192kHz), DSD (2.8/5.8/11.2MHz), MP3 / WMA / AAC (up to 48kHz/320kbps)
Video AVCHD, AVI, FLV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, MKV, WMV9, XVID
Photo JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, MPO, WEBP

Direct Stream Digital (DSD): Enjoy studio-quality sound thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec; designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1-bit format utilizes a stream of very high frequency 1s and 0s to recreate audio waveforms at a higher resolution than conventional codecs. The result is clearer, crisper, High-Resolution Audio quality. The UHD Blu-ray player supports DSD 5.6MHz decoding thru BD, DVD, CD, USB, and DLNA.

Video Section

HDMI Connectivity: The Sony UHD Blu-ray player is equipped with dual HDMI outputs for separating audio and video signals (the HDMI Out 2 does not output video signal). The HDMI Out 1 can be used to carry both digital video and audio all in one cable, plus it supports the latest HDMI 2.0b specification. You can choose to use the HDMI Out 2 to send audio only to your AV receiver and the HDMI Out 1 to send only video to your Ultra-HD TV. The HDMI output resolution can be set to 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 4K.

Note: Use a premium high-speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view 4K and HDR content optimally.

Ultra HD 4K Playback & Upscaling: With stunning UHD 4K, Sony's Ultra HD Blu-ray Player gives you 4x the resolution of full 1080p HD and boasts incredibly life-like images with a level of detail and clarity like never before. You can even upscale your favorite non-4K video content and enjoy it in 4K Ultra-HD (3,840 x 2,160) with this UHD Blu-ray Player and your Ultra HD TV.

Note: To enjoy 4K, you must have a compatible 4K television connected to the UHD Blu-ray player via HDMI.

HDR (High Dynamic Range): High Dynamic Range (HDR) enhances the dynamic range of a picture, increasing the contrast between the brightest whites and darkest blacks. Every pixel is made more accurate, regardless of resolution, bringing scenes to life with greater detail. HDR's greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels brings greater contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail. Movies and TV shows in HDR are closer to the original recording and the director's vision with more brightness, contrast and color, for a truly lifelike viewing experience.

  • HDR 10: HDR 10 is an open standard and currently the most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and 1,000 nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the player and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR. An HDR10 signal contains 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.
  • HLG: HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) is primarily designed for live video feed and over-the-air broadcasts. It uses no pre-encoded metadata and is backwards compatible with SDR. HLG's native compatibility allows much of today's existing SDR infrastructure to be re-used for HDR in the future. Standard dynamic range and high dynamic range images are combined into just one video signal that can play as SDR on SDR screens, or HDR on HLG HDR-compatible screens.
  • Dolby Vision: Dolby Vision brings movie scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. Dolby Vision is an HDR solution that creates an immersive, engaging cinematic experience in your home.Ã' Unlike HDR 10 which contains static metadata and HLG which uses not metadata, Dolby Vision adjusts brightness, color, and contrast automatically for each scene. Dynamic metadata carries information that maps every image to the player's and your TV's display capabilities, so you see more of what the content creator intended.

Note: Please use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view HDR content.

HDR-to-SDR Conversion: Watch 4K HDR films, even on non-HDR TVs, and enjoy additional shadow and highlight detail. Sony's HDR-to-SDR conversion intelligently scales HDR's ultra-wide brightness range into an SDR image, maintaining outstanding picture quality even with conventional SDR TVs.

BT.2020 Color Spaces: Support for the new BT.2020 color spaces means access to a much wider range of colors than conventional TV signals offer. This ultra-wide color space means content creators can deliver much more saturated and realistic color from deep aquatic blues to natural greens and vibrant reds.

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.

3D-Ready: The Sony UBP-X800M2 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.

Screen Settings: The Sony UBP-X800M2 Ultra-HD Blu-ray player 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 Sony UBP-X800M2 Ultra-HD Blu-ray player 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.
  • Noise Reduction: BNR reduces the mosaic-like block noise in the picture, MNR reduces minor noise around the picture outlines (mosquito noise), and FNR reduces the random noise appearing in a picture, while IP Content Noise Reduction enhances low-resolution web videos.

24p True Cinema: 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 UBP-X800M2 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

Cinema Conversion Mode: The Sony Ultra-HD 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.

I don't want to upgrade my old receiver. Is is possible to output 4K video to my 4K TV while outputing the audio as DD TrueHD or DTS MA? i.e. Watch a movie in 4K with the old HD sound.

Hi Roland, Yes, the Sony has two separate HDMI outputs, one for video/audio, and the other for audio only. If the second HDMI port is connected, the first port will output video only. There is also a coaxial digital audio output, so you should be all set. Mike

Yes, the unit has 2 HDMI outputs. Send the 4K one directly to your TV and the other to your receiver. Works great, I have the same set up

Q
Does it inherit the freeze up problem of the 700 and 800?

I haven't seen it yet and I'm keeping my fingers crossed but I have less than 24 hours total playing time on the player. The freezing problem was what kept me from buying the 800. It was on sale here locally for $100 and they can't seem to give them away. The M2 has played everything I've thrown at it so far. It seems to take a while loading UHD discs but plays them OK once they finish initializing. SACDs sound great but I'm using the COAX output with an offboard DAC.

We haven't heard any complaints about freeze-up problems on this unit thus far. Anything you buy from Crutchfield will also be covered by the 1 year Sony warranty. If you have any other questions or concerns before you place an order let us know.
