A from California on 3/29/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This simple and inexpensive box has the latest 3D software, which is what we needed to light up our new OLED TV (also from Crutchfield). Easy to use, small footprint, and comes with plenty of streaming software, too.

sony never disappoints . fantastic deal of a great 3-d blu ray player .

Pros: thin , light , fast . not pricey

Cons: i do not see any cons .

Nice but not great

A-Rod from Puerto Rico on 3/18/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is a nice piece to watch blue rays but internet connection and processor doesn't seems to be good enough.After the firmware upgrade, it was frozen and i had to unplugged it. won't help you on 1080 and forget about 4k from Netflix. My Vizio P70 has a much better processot to stream Netflix 4k content.

Pros: Crutchfield delivery is still top. Easy to setup. Nice looking piece. Light. Excellent blueray playbak. Finally a good remote control from Sony.

Cons: Not so good for streaming. Although it does the upscale from blueray to almost 4k, streaming looks as bad as my previous 2011 Sony player, which I sustituted with this one.

PaulR from Texas on 3/17/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This BRP is a pretty nice player, and that's before you consider the very reasonable cost. It performs well, plays just about disc, including SACDs, puts out a really good picture with deep rich blacks, and bright vibrant colors. It is easy to configure, the onscreen display is one of the best I have ever seen. Easy to manipulate and easy to use. The device will output DSD over HDMI when playing SACDs, which is very important to us. When playing BR video discs, it will also do very nice upscaling, either to 1080p or to 4K outputs. It connects cleanly to the network and can browse and play Audio, Video, and Photo's from our network. Or DLNA based server can see the device as a renderer, and send Audio or Video to it, which it handles very well. It can also stream from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and plethora of other sources. It does a very good job of displaying streamed video, though the ATV-Gen3 still presents a better picture and an easier to navigate menu. It easily competes head on with a Roku3 though, both in usability, streaming, and audio/video quality. The device loads discs very quickly, and has no trouble playing even very detailed video with complex hi-res audio tracks. The only downside is the device itself does not feel solid, with a plastic feel and a very loosey-goosey triangular button on top. See Pros and Cons below for more details.

Pros: Plays video beautifully Plays all audio, including SACDs with audiophile quality sound Outputs DSD over the HDMI connection, or converts DSD to 24/176.4 LPCM output Fast Great GUI menu Large selection of streaming services Streamed video looks better than average Streams Audio/Video from our home network with ease Excellent cost/performance.

Cons: Wireless network is limited to 2.4ghz, much better performance using a wired connection Build quality is less than stellar, unit is very light, power on/off/eject button is only shaped (triangular) and feels like it might break if pressed too firmly No 7.1outputs When streaming Video over DLNA, it won't play all the available formats we normally scan into. Using remote to select music or video from large library is clumsy Top mirrored surface smudges very easily

Good Blu-ray Player

BillyBob from Ohio on 3/15/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have used the player for about 2 months. Product is light weight and quite compact, but has a somewhat cheap plastic feel and appearance. The initial set-up was fast and easy. Unit works well with easy loading, very good picture quality, nice and simple remote operation. Operates well with both DVD & Blu-ray discs. Have not played a 3D disc yet. I don't use the streaming features since my UHDTV has these features. The unit froze up on one occasion after playing a DVD disc. Memory continued to display this movie even when I inserted other discs. Had to clear the memory, unplug and restart the unit in order to clear the problem. This issue has not occurred again. Overall, I'm satisfied with the unit and the pricing was right.

Pros: Easy of use. Unit has a light weight, compact design with 4K upscaling.

Cons: Has a cheap feel and appearance which is surprising for a Sony product.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've only had this BlueRay player a couple of weeks. The color is fantastic on my Samsung curved TV UHD 4K. We like using it to stream netflix movies and tv shows. The setup was easy and fast.

Anonymous from UT on 2/2/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A couple of movie disks lagged upon loading, had to open and close the tray to start over. The unit just freezes up from time to time, using Netflix, etc. and none of the buttons on the remote work, even the power button. Also, the power button on the machine itself won't turn it off, you have to unplug the machine and plug back in. The machine has the latest firmware.

Pros: Plays discs quite well. Like the wifi accessibility.

Cons: Lag loading disks and remote freezing up and having to unplug and plug the machine to reset it and start all over again.

Great Product

Impressive PQ

jrd47 from Michigan on 1/10/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My older DVDs show noticeably improved PQ when played on this unit compared to my old Pioneer F727 carousel.

Pros: Great PQ and is PAL disc capable for playing my European format discs.

Cons: Can only load 1 at a time as it's a single disc player.

4k Blu Ray player

MikeC from Missouri on 1/6/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This player compliments my new Sony XBR55 TV very well. The player does upscaling well - watched Monument Men on BR which was shot in 4K. Detail was excellent and player is pretty straightforward to use.

Pros: Ease of setup, good remote, and good picture. Disc loads quickly

Cons: Cheaper plastic housing.

Great BD/DVD

evozki from Texas on 1/3/2015

Crystal clear picture when paired with the Sony XBR-65X850B. Highly recommended and highly recommend you purchase from Crutchfield.

Sony BDP-S6200

Stan from Hawaii on 12/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've only had this BDP for about 2 weeks now, but have thoroughly enjoyed it. First, it was recommended (over another comparable BDP) by the Crutchfield agent, as having everything I wanted, and being possibly more compatible with my Sony 72" TV as well as my home theater system. I'm glad I took his advice. It arrive in 2-3 days, which for delivery to Hawaii is extraordinary. Set up was easy and quick. So far, everything I've tested has performed flawlessly, as the agent said it should. Blue Ray disks play beautifully; both video and sound quality of movies is great. But the part I've enjoyed the most is the apps/features that I can play. Pandora, and YouTube - in particular - are easily accessed through the menu, and again the sound quality and video quality as excellent. Wireless internet access through the built in Wi-Fi are as seamless and smooth running as on my desk-top computer. I really appreciate the recommendation, and am loving the Sony BDP-S6200.

Pros: Easy of navigation to preloaded apps. Good wireless connectivity. Great video and sound quality.

Cons: None noted yet.

The Jury is still out on this item

Anonymous from New York on 11/23/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had this item for a couple of weeks now and had to call Crutchfield to replace the unit. The HDMI up-scaling crapped out. Crutchfield as usual,recognized the symptom and quickly replace the item not charge. These people are great. I will see how this new one performs and give and update later. It does look great when it worked.

Pros: small easy to use has a nice picture

Cons: At this point seems unreliable hoping for the best.

Easy to use

Jerry from California on 11/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got it for my mother to use with Netflix. She had some problems with her old BluRay and couldn't get a signal from her upstairs bedroom. The wireless router is downstairs away from her room. Plus since she's not mechanically inclined, it's good to have a Nextflix button on the remote. Quick loading of DVDs & BluRays. Now my dad and I don't need to feel guilty about watching college football on Saturdays. Crutchfield as always lends top support and if you change your mind, easy returns.

Pros: Duo Core processor means quick loading of DVDs/BluRays and fast streaming of Netflix with no breaks in the video. Unobtrusive, small unit which is aesthetically pleasing.

Cons: Could be a little sturdier. (But that's to be expected in this price range)

Meets all my needs

BillJ from Sunset Beach, NC on 11/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Before buying this article, I did a chat with a concern about the function of the product with one of Crutch-fields Tech. I have a Samsung TV in one part of a room and a Sony amp/receiver in another, both connected with one long HDMI cable. I wanted to be sure the Sony DVD could be connected to only the amp/receiver and still play it's video though and on to the TV without need to run any additional long cable runs. I was assured it would work that way. And so it did. It was quit easy to set up and now I have great DVD video with surround sound. Thanks Crutchfield. Great service. You're number one in my book.

Pros: Easy set up. Integrates well with other Sony devices. Many good features for the price.

Cons: Better integration of Sony remotes would be a plus.

Very Nice Picture

Ravim from Atlanta, GA on 11/4/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice Picture and even my old DVD's look much better. I haven't watched any 3D movies yet but everything else look great. I connected this to a Yamaha RXA 2040 receiver and the output to Sony Projector and the picture quality is beautiful.

Pros: Great Picture and Fast loading of Blu Ray. The Wifi is also very powerful.

Cons: None.

SImple to hook up

Phil S2888 from Audubon, NJ on 10/23/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to hook up and operate. Excellent picture resolution and pauses crystal clear. NetFlix also easy to use. Does not come with anything like a users manual, as most things these days, so still discovering all this player can do.

Pros: Light weight, fairly small, easy to use, small remote. Excellent quality

Cons: No printed manual, have not used features I have not discovered.

Nice player

Sony Blue Ray Player

DanaS from Minneapolis MN on 10/19/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Sony Blue Ray player is an upgrade to our current player. The Boot/startup speed is much improved. Like the upscale to 4K to with our new 4K Sony TV.

Pros: Initial setup was easy.

Cons: No problems so far.

Crutchfield has the best support.

Gil from Tampa, FL on 10/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this DVD player because it had so many features. One of them was to play some very old DVD-Rs. We'll it couldn't play them. So I called. The Crutchfield advisor figured it out. I hadn't Finalized the DVD. Couldn't be happier with my purchase and the service from Crutchfield.

Pros: Very high resolution.

Cons: None yet.

Sony BDP-S6200

DannyW from Calabasas, CA on 10/7/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This review is based on about 2 weeks of usage. Picture and audio are very good. Huge selection of streaming options. Worked right out of the box. I don't own a 4k TV, so I can't comment on this upscale feature. If not for the con below, I'd give it 5 stars.

Pros: Small footprint, very good picture and audio. Endless number of channels for streaming. Some are even useful...

Cons: When unit was set to normal start, it wouldn't turn on the next day, unless I unplugged it first. When I set it to quick start, the problem was gone. I called Crutchfield and they don't know of a cure for this model, but they said other Sony models had the same issue and they fixed it with Firmware update. We agreed to wait 60 days for a fix. If not they'll replace the unit for me. Another minor con: The remote must be pointed at the unit in order to operate.


WayneM from Twin Cities, Minnesota on 10/6/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced an older Sony Blu-Ray with this Blu-ray player to use with my Samsung 4K TV. Easily installed and recognized by the TV. Just turn it on and the TV displays it immediately. Great upscale to 4K. All at a very attractive price from the best supplier you could want.

Pros: This has all the features you could ask for.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Great Player

Dave from Staunton, VA on 10/1/2014

The onscreen instructions made setup very easy. It is easy to connect, works perfectly, and the remote has a separate button for "Netflix," which is a very nice feature.

Pros: Easy to set up and use.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Good Lil Blu Ray DVD Player

kentcoee from Birmingham, AL on 9/22/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this DVD player because it is WiFi Ready and we wanted to use Netflix to view programs/movies we have missed. Setup was easy. The only issue I ran into was not the fault of this product. I needed a WiFi signal booster so the DVD Player could access the internet and Netflix. A nuance I have noticed is I need to manually connect to my WiFi Home Network every time I turn on the DVD player to access Netflix.

Pros: It works as advertised. Compact, lightweight. Blu Ray 3-D.

Cons: Manually connect to my WiFi Home Network every time I turn on the DVD player to access Netflix, but not a deal breaker.

Nice Small DVD Player

Fab4fan4ever2014 from Washington DC on 7/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little DVD player is a winner. Picture is great and no problems setting it up to the TV. Has some great Apps too.

Pros: Nice picture quality and easy set up. I purchased this because I wanted a 4K upscale for my new Sony 4K TV. Also, it's small and fits nicely right next to the can hardly see it. I still have an older Blu-ray Panasonic (mental unit) that works just fine, so I have both hooked up. Use the Sony for movies and the Panasonic for music.

Cons: It's made of plastic and I would prefer mental, but, the mental units are more costly now. Feels cheap, but, works fine so far.

Unit freezes up!

JCB from Martins Ferry, OH on 6/26/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I haven't had a new DVD player in many years, but after ours broke and the computer DVD drive quick working, I decided with the help of Crutchfield (whom I must say is phenomenal) I bought this. It's my first experience with Bluray which I find beautiful and even streaming netflix through this is so much better than the way I was doing it. Overall I am really impressed.

Pros: easy set up easy to operate beautiful images

Cons: none so far

The perfect blue ray for the Sony 4K set up

James from W Hyannisport, MA on 5/17/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm very pleased with my Sony BDP-S6200. It's a great fit for my 55" BDR-850 4K tv, Sony Media Player, and Sony STR-DN1040 receiver. Blue ray movies come in great. You'll be blown away with the system.

Pros: Great quality of blue ray movies. Upgrade in quality of movies toward 4k works perfectly with my other Sony components. Great Sony support for getting my system set up. Great Crutchfield sales people and a worry free company to deal with over the phone or internet .

Cons: It little pricey but well worth it.


mr_ from Augusta, KS. on 5/4/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced a BDP-S500 with this unit. The S500 stated having issues between scenes of blu rays and then the remote became MIA. The BDP-S6200 is a lot smaller and lighter than the S500. This model was picked becuase it had netflix, and supported the higher end HD audio. The out of the box setup ws easy. unpack and plug it in.The first thing I noticed is this unit boots up way faster than the S500. Connecting to our home network wa simple, as was setting up our existing Netflix account. I am using an Onkyo TX-Sr604 and wanted it to process the audio, I had trouble figuing it out. I called crutchfield and they told me what to change. The video and audio are better on the S6200 than the S500. My 5 and 7 year old can run netflix and Youtube without any trouble. For the money this is a good unit. Several days after this was in use it quit streaming Netflix and Youtube. Troubleshooting this was intresting the unit said it was connected to the interternet but wasn't registered with some sever. I restarted my modem, router and S6200. That solved the initial issue. Now the unit just freezes up from time to time and has to be unplugged and plugged back in. This is my reason for 3 star. I am sure they will have a software update that wil resolve it soon. Another annoying thing is you have to be on the home screen to hit the Netflix button and have it go it Netflix

Pros: Fast boot goot video and audio Youtube netflix DTS HD audio 4K 1080P upconversion

Cons: unit freezes up Netflix button on remote

Video Section

HDMI (ver.1.4): The BDP-S6200'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, 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.

4K Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S6200 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-S6200 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-S6200 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.

3D-Ready w/ 2D-3D Conversion: The Sony BDP-S6200 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-S6200 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 Color: The Sony Blu-ray player supports a color depth of up to 12 bits.

  • 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 to enhance the picture quality of streamed network 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.

I am not aware of a clock. I checked the online manual and didn't see a clock mentioned and none is displayed when the player is turned on. [ WAYNE  Mar 10, 2015 ]

No, it does not require a second HDMI cable. [ Gordon  Jul 30, 2014 ]
I am only using one HDMI cable from the Sony BDP-S6200 to my Yamaha Home Theatre receiver. I don't see any reason why you would need a second cable if you were going directly to a TV instead as long as it had a HDMI input. [ EDWARD  Jul 30, 2014 ]
I only use one from the Blu ray to my receiver, then one from the receiver to the tv [ MARIANO  Jul 29, 2014 ]
You only need one HDMI cable for audio, and video. from the blue ray to the tv. You only need more than one cable, if you're connecting a receiver to the blue ray, and from the receiver to the tv. [ Reginald  Jul 29, 2014 ]
According to Sony (per telephone conversation recently) it will support up to a 4T HD. I am waiting for them to verify which manufacture/model and return a phone call back to me. That will be a while as the wheels at Sony seem to move extremely slow. As it sets right now, this Blu Ray Player sees a 1T HD (no matter the manufacture as I have thee different HD's). My HD's are all in a usb 3.0 enclosure with its own adapter. It WON"T see my 2T HD's which is the reason I purchased it :(. IF I ever get that call from Sony, I will report back here. [ Bonnie  Mar 15, 2015 ]
I'm sorry I can't answer that. I don't even know what that is. I just use it to watch Blu ray dvd's and use Netflix on it. [ MARIANO  Jun 30, 2014 ]
I don't know. [ JAMES EDWARD  Jun 13, 2014 ]
no. [ RAFAEL  Jun 10, 2014 ]
Do not know. The unit's documentation, including downloaded full manual, does not specify this information. Try contacting Sony support directly to ask for that info. TJM [ THOMAS J  Jun 06, 2014 ]
