BDP-S7200 in home theater setting

The BDP-S7200 delivers premium picture and sound to your home theater setup (TV, receiver, speakers, and stand not included).

This player does more than  discs — Sony offers an extensive library of over streaming apps including Netflix®, YouTube™, Hulu® and Amazon Instant Video. The built-in Wi-Fi and user-friendly menu combine to have you connected to your network easier and faster than ever. Sony's IP Noise Reduction Pro technology improves the picture quality of your streamed content.

In addition, the screen mirroring feature will make you feel like you're living in the future. Using Miracast™ technology, the BDP-S7200 lets you “push” what you see on your smartphone or tablet onto your TV's big screen — perfect for sharing home videos or memorable pictures with a group.

Make your music really sing

The BDP-S7200 takes digital music a step further than typical Blu-ray players with support for lossless and uncompressed music files, including DSD format. These high-resolution files bring texture and details to music that both casual and critical listeners will appreciate. With the ability to play high-res by disc or from a USB device, the BDP-7200 is a great option for fueling your premium sound system. You may hear guests say, "I've heard this song hundreds of time, but it never sounded like that."

I really like it much better than the one I had.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had all sorts of problems with this unit. Sometimes it wouldn't turn off. Read up on this. It's true. Sometimes an unresponsive remote. A couple of times, it completely reset, which means I needed to re-enter all my setting/passwords. This shouldn't happen with any player much less one this expensive. Too bad, the picture and audio quality were great. Crutchfield was great with support. I tried this player twice.



Great device, seriously limited remote

Robert W from Lodi, CA on 2/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great, response and startup are much faster than I expected from the reviews and ratings, perhaps the current firmware has addressed this. After several days of heavy streaming use on both Amazon and Netflix, I have had no problems except it taking a minute or so to fully buffer into HD, slower than using the HDMI output on a computer with same network speed. On occasion when returning from an app it will skip the SEN page and go to that section of the tools menu. If you need a multi-function remote though, this would be a deal-breaker. The remote will only control a limited number of TV's and cannot be programmed for anything else, period, not even a "learning mode" ability, disappointing for the price of the unit.

Pros: Quick response times and excellent video quality

Cons: Remote very limited to controlling only some TV's, period.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Blu Ray awesome, Hi REs Music lacks functionality, No Shuffle play from USB files, akward play controls, was hoping for better interface like the PS4 or PS3 controls, Other than that it works for video very well.

Pros: BluRay and DVD's look fantastic 17" width works great with other components

Cons: Music Player Sounds good but lacks options for playback

Great system

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very pleased with the Sony BDP-S7200 disc player. I bought this player for its audio capability. It plays high resolution audio files as well as my Peachtree DAC. It plays high resolution audio files from either a flash drive (FAT32 format) or an external hard drive (NTFS format), but the player does not recognize the larger HD audio files on the external hard drive. Also plays SACD files. The sound is very good. The player has a single coaxial output. It does not have separate right and left outputs, nor does it have separate 5.1 component outputs. But still sounds wonderful. Excellent video for both blu-ray and blu-ray 3D; looks wonderful on an LG OLED TV. Wireless internet access very easy to navigate. Complaints: 1. Display on front of player provides little information 2. While playing an audio file it is not capable for searching for another file. Overall very pleased. 4.5 out of 5 Bob D

Some good, some not so good

Pete from Baltimore, MD on 10/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Some good, some not so good. I recently bought the Sony BDP-S7200 disk player (software version M21.R.0164, which I assume is the latest version). I have the unit on a UPS ("battery box") and have had *no* problems with the deck freezing up. I was unable to test the internet connectivity functions because of our internet setup. My previous unit was a Sony BDP-S360 which was much slower loading disks, but will plays disks this BDP-S7200 can not (H.264 encoded).

Pros: 1.Unlike other players, including the Sonys with wall-wart power supplies, this player, after pausing, will advance one frame forward (or backward) with each push of the key, also will slowly advance if key is held down. 2. Plays commercial DVDs upscaled to 1080p so sharp they look like blu-rays did on my old Sony player. 3. Plays my 'test' (damaged) audio CD percectly, many players can't. 4. Plays blu-rays disks fine and sharp. 5. Plays home-recorded DVDs/blurays normal and AVCHD i

Cons: 1. Only plays home-recorded disks if in MPEG2 encoding, will *not* properly play (ie frozen or non-responsive) DVDs or BluRays disks in the new H.264 encoding. This made me have to rerecord about 30 disks. Other players in the same price range also do not play H.264 disks. 2. Front panel control buttons are same color as panel, need to be painted (white) to be seen.

Superb DVD/CD player. Big improvement over an older Sony DVD player I have had for many years. Both video & audio much improved. This DVD player has a high quality DAC which allows me to use it as a CD player. Sound quality of CD's is excellent. Sounds better than my Yamaha CD player. Can't beat the price either. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Plugged in and was easy to set up and worked good at first test. But when I put in a disc to watch a few days later, the machine froze about a half hour into playing and I could not get the machine to do anything - open tray, turn off, etc. I had to unplug it and then plug it back in and it was OK after that. Was unnerving to have it happen with a brand new machine.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The best rated blu ray player in 2015, we'll they are right. This player is just awesome. The image quality that is sent to my Onkyo tx nr646 is just incredible, but the sound, the high res sound that only top notch players can put out, is just incredible. My moves found new life, something I never thought possible. Just a great purchase.

Great blue ray player !!!!!!


Cons: None

So well done on the BD and CD. All else left at the factory.

vincedog3 from Tennessee on 7/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First of all, This is NOT an OPPO BDP-103 on the cheap so don't expect it. That said, the BD performance image wise is very well done. Nice saturated colors, and detail, and dynamic range. CD playback going to my Emotiva XMC-1 Processor is fine as I don't hear anything this player has to say. Menus are antiquated but still work fine. Can you work a PS-3? Than you can work this one too. I would give 5 stars if the stream performance was what it should have been. At best, the picture is soft, otherwise posterization, Dot Crawl, and my connection is incredible fast with a hard wired Ethernet connection. My Asus G75VW playing back the same content on anything YouTube, or Netflix, or Amazon Prime gives this Sony a Spanking in image quality. Odd this really. But there it is. Connections are standard fair, HDMI, Coaxial, Optical Outputs, and Ethernet Connection, and Wifi. Would not even recommend Wifi seeing the pitiful performance from hard wired. Summary, great BD and CD playback. Atrocious streaming quality. Not recommended. I should really give it 3 stars, but the BD and CD made me happy, giving it a 4 star grade. Provisionally recommended with the questionable Streaming performance with standing.

Pros: BD and CD performance very good to excellent. Easy PS-3 menu structure.

Cons: Awful Streaming performance, and quality.

Sony BDP-7200 so far so good!

Vic from Ozone Park, NY on 6/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have 2 PS3's that were both freezing & skipping on some Blu Ray Disc Movies. I would be watching a movie and after an hour start skipping. I bought this Blu Ray Player and watched 10 movies so far and nothing but a beautiful picture even with the movies that were skipping on the PS3's. My only concern is the audio from the BDP-7200 is slightly lower than everything else hooked up to my Yamaha ADV. Surround Sound amp. Thats why I gave it 4 stars not 5. Only played movies so far.

Pros: Great Picture, Starts up quick enough, light weight.

Cons: Thin plastic disc tray,

Many things right, but!!!!!!!!

carl from Robles, Mi on 5/25/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Picture, sound, excellent. However, unit freezes on occasion and you have to reboot. It happens on Amazon, so maybe it is an Amazon problem. I thought about sending it back, but am working with it. Overall it is a very good unit. The one issue need addressing by Sonys and Amazon. I am waiting for update of the unit. Once again Crutchfield is outstanding to work with. I have been buying from them for many years and will continue. Great staff.

Pros: Picture, and sound.

Cons: Freezes periodically,

Solid Player, Good Value

klw from Austin, TX on 4/4/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This player is easy to use and performs very well. It lacks some of the bells and whistles of the more expensive units but if you just need something to play DVDs and Blu Ray than this is a good choice. Additionally, the wireless set up is easy and Netflix looks and sounds great streaming through this player. Overall I am very happy with this machine.

Pros: Easy to set up, Simple operation, low price, quality play back.

Cons: Lacks some features.

steve from normal,il on 3/23/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After chatting with advisor i chose this unit. Not very tech savvy and this unit hooked up very easy. Synced with my Sony amp and sounds great thru surround. Others may need to tweak settings for personal taste. All around it does just what it should. I use Ethernet cable for internet and its very fast

Pros: Easy set up,

Cons: None

A Mighty Mite.

J. Heifetz from Central VA on 3/21/2016

The little Sony has played everything without a hitch so far. SACD's via the coaxial output through an outboard DAC sound phenomenal. This unit's sound and picture quality admirably displaced my decade old, top shelf Denon 5910ci. Hard to believe, but true. The wireless set up was quick and painless even for an old goat like me. I'm enjoying the streaming aspect more than I thought I ever would, reliving Group B Rallies at ear-splitting volumes late into the night. Great fun. This unit at Crutchfield's price is a no-brainer.

Pros: Ease of set up and use. Coaxial digital output sounds great. Diminutive size and weight make placement effortless. The unit is aesthetically minimalist and unobtrusive which is much to my liking.

Cons: Dealt my highfalutin audiophile ego a debilitating blow. Wish I had bought one sooner!

Sony BDP-S7200

r from tucson, AZ on 3/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Here's what you need to know about this player: It's quiet, the instant on is just THAT. The 3-D is brilliant, and the DTS-HD Master - Dolby TrueHD decoding is focused and sharp. This player replaced a higher end Onkyo, and exceeded that players capabilities.

Pros: Exceptional product for this price.

Cons: The web browser is cumbersome, but that's not important for my needs. The other web apps work fine.

Great Quality

BenR from Lafayette, LA on 3/1/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great quality Bluray player. Looks as good as the A/V preformance. I bought it to go with my new Sony 4K TV and the combination is nothing short of stunning! Would buy again!

Pros: 4K Upscaling Great Apps Great Picture quality Works great with my Receiver

Cons: Only thing I can think of would be that's not a full 4K Bluray, this is an Upscaling unit, but since Sony hasn't released a full 4K Bluray player it's not really a knock against this model.

I have an older 42" Plasma, and this player brings me out of the stone-age with flawless wireless streaming and painless set up. Despite it's small size, it's got some heft, even the drawer sounds solid during the open/close cycle.

Pros: Great picture and sound

Cons: Smallish remote

Sony Excellence

Pat M from Charlottesville,VA on 1/26/2016

Blu Ray looks great with this player, simple excellence. Definitely has a uality distance from bargain players. Clear. crisp, responsive. Great features.

Pros: Doesn't have to do much more than put out a great signal to the receiver then the 4K TV. It does it well.

Cons: It does not show track numbers on the SONY player, just elapsed time. So unless the TV is on when playing music, it is irritating not to be able to confirm the track when playing CD's.


Mario V from Ponce, PR on 1/24/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this unit mainly because I can stream Amazon Prime and also I got it from Crutchfield at a steep discount. It was easy to hook up but unit froze the very first day and had to unplug it and plug it back on to get it to work.

Sony BDP-S7200 I've had it only a short time, it works well, especially the smart TV feature. Have found no problems at all. I had to call Crutchfield for instructions on how to program the remote so it would control my TV also. The tech I spoke to knew the product and was able to instruct me on the problem. Great DVD player and as usual Great tech support from Crutchfield.

Pros: Easy to control both DVD and Smart TV features.

Cons: None,so far.

Crutchfield offered at the best price and included free shipping and lifetime Warranty. I checked with numerous on line technical groups including chatting with 2 tech advisers at Chutchfield and they all agreed that the Sony BDP-S7200 was the best BlueRay player to compliment my Sony XBR-75X850C. Crutchfield had the best price the best technical support and coupling that with free shipping and lifetime tech support, no one else could compete.

Pros: Best Price Free Shipping Lifetime Technical support Great Technical support

GAB from California on 12/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We got this mostly to stream movies through Netflix and the occasional blue ray. Picture quality ease of use and abundant features are great for the price. That said if binge watching Netflix the player will get stuck. Sometimes while playing you can't pause some times while paused it won't play. You can't even power the system down. The only fix we have found is to unplug it wait a few minutes and plug it back in. I have not owned a Sony product since the days of the boombox and swore off the brand because of its lack of reliability. I was enticed back to the brand because "how can they still be around if they still make products that don't last." This is the last sony product I buy.

Pros: Ceatures

Cons: Doesn't always work

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

always been a sony man. got this to upgrade my system. have a bravia 55"TV, and a sony 5 channel receiver. seems to shut down for no apparent reason. I can un plug a replug to reset it and then it works fine. trouble using bravia sync. doesn't seem to hold sync. When it does work it's great, clear video, fast streaming and great sound. I use pandora most days.

Pros: fast streaming, clear sound, sharp videos and blue rays

Cons: constantly shuts down. doesn't hold sync.

Simply Amazing!

Brad Z. from South Carolina on 8/17/2015

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.

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.

Cons: None so far.

Levi from Indio CA on 6/19/2015

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!

LarryT from Schaumburg, Illinois on 3/17/2015

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.

don't buy

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 .

pg from Lubbock, Texas on 2/25/2015

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

Couchpotato45 from Florida on 2/10/2015

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

JoeW from United States on 1/28/2015

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.

RichJ from Waterbury, CT on 1/18/2015

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

JNT from the Washington, DC Area on 1/5/2015

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Anonymous from Southern NJ on 12/26/2014

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

DDM from Dubuque, IA on 12/21/2014

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

easy plug and play set up.

Pros: easy set up easy to use



DVD Willy from Haymarket, VA on 8/30/2014

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
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, Super Audio CD

Blu-ray Disc: Blu-ray 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
Video AVCHD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, WMV9, XVID

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).

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.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I have read about how good the 4k up-conversion is on this player ( even better than my Sony XBRX930C tv, if all reviews are correct ). I am going to put it to the test because my tv 4k upscale is awfully good. My three Sony BDP-S5500 blu-ray players have been good ones, as have other Sony dvd players owned in the past, so I expect the BDP-S7200 to perform well also. Hope I am not disappointed. I will review it after using for a while. [ Larry  Mar 14, 2017 ]
This one will be easier than a 6200 to install in my tower. [ WILLIAM  Mar 10, 2017 ]
Upgrading, and sale price on this Sony made it hard to say no. [ Noah  Feb 17, 2017 ]
I chose this item for no other reason than it was from Crutchfield. I trust Crutchfield to give me the best products with no shipping or sales tax; along with excellent customer service. Plain and simple. [ Scott  Feb 04, 2017 ]
a friend recomended it [ john  Feb 03, 2017 ]
I was looking for high quality Sony Bluray player that had DTS MA and Dolby TrueHD. [ Clifford  Jan 23, 2017 ]

I liked the fact that it plays multi format discs, the Sony name is important and the discounted price is great. [ CHRIS  Dec 21, 2016 ]
Easy to set up, always reliable Sony Bluray [ DARIN E  Dec 21, 2016 ]

Like shopping on line . Think Crutchfield is the best place to buy , when I wanted a new blu ray player [ ROBERT  Dec 01, 2016 ]
It fit the need for a mid-range Blu-ray player that has a useful display when you listen to CD's - i.e. you don;t need the TV on to see track information. [ John Paul  Nov 26, 2016 ]
Just Purchased the Sony XBR-65X930D from Crutchfield and wanted a Sony Blu-Ray 4K upscale player to match up with it. The Sony BDP-S7200 has great reviews and features should work well until the limited 4K Ultra Blu-ray players become more prevalent. [ CarnalGraffiti  Nov 22, 2016 ]
Reasons: 1) Equipment component parts reliability (judged by weight & Crutchfield input information via email); 2) 4K upscale feature; 3) Equipment width matches receiver width (@ 17"); 4) Quality appearance of product; 5) Price (savings) of product. [ James M.  Nov 22, 2016 ]
The positive reviews, the price point and I wanted a Sony player to go with my 55 " Sony television. [ Gary  Nov 22, 2016 ]

High quality and it met my requirements. I have had very good luck with Sony. [ WAYMOND  Sep 23, 2016 ]
My Sony bdp s6500 just stopped working. I like sony players, so I was looking for a high end player. Even though 4k players are right around the corner, finding a high res blue ray player at a good price is difficult. This was the best rated blu ray player in 2015, was also a $400 player, finding it at this price was just too hard to pass up. [ Erick  Sep 06, 2016 ]

Upgrading my older Sony player and wanted another one that would play SACD and 3D Blueray discs. Always been satisfied with Sony CD/DVD/ Blueray players in the past, so why change? [ RODNEY A  Aug 05, 2016 ]

it is very easy to run and it is compatiable to our TV [ MICHELLE  Jul 01, 2016 ]
I'm just a big Sony fan when it comes to home electronics. It really shows the color texture of the picture and brings out the realism of the video. [ Rogelio  Jun 28, 2016 ]
Had features I wanted and Crutchfield has treated me well in the past. [ Dave  May 23, 2016 ]

Great Picture!! [ PATRICIA  May 13, 2016 ]
Had good luck with other Sony devices and this seemed like the most bang for the buck in DVD players. [ PETER  May 11, 2016 ]
I've used my PS3 for several years to play movies and it works great. I figured a Sony BDP will perform just as well. I'm going to use it in my bedroom. [ Horace  May 05, 2016 ]

Best Reviews [ Steven  Apr 14, 2016 ]
I wanted a Sony DVD 4K upscale player because Sony products have always been reliable. [ RONALD E  Apr 13, 2016 ]
Supports SACD discs. Supports revised Youtube standards, which my current unit BDP-S780 does not and for which no firmware update is available.. Supports blu-ray discs. BDP-S780 will be moved into our living room stereo system to replace an old, ungainly, and hard to use Sony CD changer. [ R  Apr 03, 2016 ]

NetFlix capability and 4k upscaling [ Richard  Mar 03, 2016 ]
Needed to replace Sony BDP-S6200 Blu-ray player that was giving me video dropouts during playback- I isolated the problem to the player. I have an extensive collection of SACDs and needed to stay with Sony to support the playing of my SACDs. I hope this Sony Blu-ray player lasts longer than the 15 months the last one did... [ Christopher  Mar 03, 2016 ]
Per customer review, high end product and on sale. [ ERNESTO  Mar 01, 2016 ]

Feature set, free shipping and Crutchfield's reputation. [ Paul  Feb 10, 2016 ]
I just felt this item had the features I really neaded, for one I like the display on the front of the unit, If I choose to play a CD then I know where it is at, I can also watch Blu Ray discs on my tv with the ultra high def image that my tv can produce. A lot of features for the money. Also my experience with sony DVD players in the past has always been good. [ Douglas  Feb 09, 2016 ]
4k Upscaling, top level audio performance [ JUSTIN Z  Feb 08, 2016 ]
I have upgraded my TV and still have many SACD multichannel discs - this Blu-ray player will allow me to continue to enjoy them! [ Gregory  Feb 04, 2016 ]
I plan to purchase a 43" Sony Ultra 4K hd television in the next 45-60 days and wanted to stay with compatible brands--have had pretty luck with Sony over the years, except for re-furbished items--got burned bad on a sony Vaio computer once. [ Bill  Feb 02, 2016 ]

Looked like a good match for my new Sony 65 XBR 850 [ Alfred  Jan 03, 2016 ]
Sony reputation, quality, reliability & experience and is about half what the Oppo player I can't afford costs. Plays SACDs in addition to nearly all the other formats. [ Antonio  Jan 02, 2016 ]
Sony products are known for quality and libility. [ RONALD  Dec 31, 2015 ]
Has Dual Core processor which really helps with smooth streaming, up conversions & rendering in 3D/4K. Styling matches my Sony STRDN1060 Receiver perfectly. [ Brian  Dec 23, 2015 ]

Good value & quality [ JOHNNY  Dec 12, 2015 ]
I purchased the Sony BDP-S7200 as it has 4K upscale and is a perfect match for my Onkyo TX-NR838. Although the Sony BDP-S6500 is fully comparable, the S7200 is built more substantially and blends well with my system. My TV is a Sony 4K 65 inch XBRx810C. [ ANTONIO G  Dec 11, 2015 ]
Price is good [ Danilo  Dec 09, 2015 ]
I Like Sony Equipment. [ Dennis  Dec 04, 2015 ]

5 questions already asked

Yes. [ JERRY  Dec 02, 2016 ]
These are two separate units that you have to program them to communicate each other [ Miguel  Dec 02, 2016 ]
no [ ANDREW  Dec 05, 2016 ]
I can't help. I do not have a 4K TV and have not tried to use 4K DVDs. [ John  Nov 29, 2016 ]
The signal is double filtered first through the player then the television. Both units work independently to give the best imagery possible hence you get double the up scale ability. You truly have to see it to believe it. [ Ralston  Dec 16, 2015 ]
The 4K TV is not broadcasting in 4K. Therefore you will see an improvement now but when 4K is operating there should be additional improvement. [ jon  Dec 15, 2015 ]
No. The player upscales the signal to 4K first. If you connect a non-4K player to a 4K TV, the TV will do the upscaling instead. You will want to experiment to see if your TV does a better job in your home. [ Jim  Dec 14, 2015 ]
Not a 100% sure but I don't think so. [ Eric  Dec 14, 2015 ]
mathematically the S7200 will upscale a dvd or blu- ray dvd to the limit of its algorythmn and pass that enhanced image to the television. If your TV has the capability to further enhance the signal you could see even better results [ Maryel  Dec 14, 2015 ]
Yih-Pai L, I have only had this player a few days, and with the busy-ness of the holidays, I have only explored a few of its features. I don't know the answer to your question. For what it's worth, the picture on my 1080p LCD screen is sharper than with the older Sony Blu-ray player the S7200 replaced. I feel that audio quality is improved, as well. Software is still evolving, however: two upgrades in two weeks time and still WiFi audio streaming needs improvement. I am sure Sony will get it right eventually. Good luck, [ ERNEST  Dec 27, 2014 ]
Yes the player is HDMI-ARC capable without an optical audio out. I connected my equipment without connecting the audio out and everything works well even though you do have the option connecting using the optical audio out it is not necessary. [ Ralston  Dec 25, 2014 ]
Yes, the player is HDMI-ARC capable, supporting Sony's Bravia Sync standard through a high speed HDMI cable. Digital audio is provided through the HDMI interface and coaxial out connection only, with no provision provided for analogue out. [ Terry  Dec 24, 2014 ]
Not sure exactly what that feature is but if I can get more details I would try it to see if the DVD is able to deliver...Please let me know if I may assist one way or another...I used it on a 4k tv and it performed great but that is about it... [ PAVEL  Dec 24, 2014 ]
A Christmas gift. Has not been opened yet, therefore unable to have my husband the expert answer without spoiling surprise. Sorry [ Maryel  Dec 23, 2014 ]
Good question. The details aren't really clear on that capability. I can tell you that I use the Bravia Sync feature on mine, which I believe uses the ARC technology to send signals back and forth with capable Sony components. "One remote controls all Bravia devices." Sorry I couldn't give you a confirmed answer but I hope this helps. [ Brett  Dec 23, 2014 ]
My understanding is that it is HDMI-ARC capable. I put it that way because I personally have not tried to use this function. [ WILLIAM  Dec 23, 2014 ]
yes it is capable and works great [ DARYL B  Dec 23, 2014 ]
Yes. I've watched several 4K Netflix features using this player and it looks great on my 4K Sony TV. [ Jared  Dec 12, 2014 ]
