Our take on the Sony UBP-X800 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
The Sony UBP-X800 4K Blu-ray player has a frame-and-beam chassis for less vibration.
Sony's first 4K Blu-ray player is worth the wait
Sony took their time to release the UBP-X800 Ultra HD Blu-ray player — they wanted to do it right. Good call. They've created a solidly built home theater component that will push your 4K Ultra HD TV to perform its best. This versatile player will serve up Ultra HD Blu-ray discs with their full 4K resolution and wide, vivid color spectrum. It 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 the richest picture yet
4K Blu-ray discs with High Dynamic Range (HDR) offer the best picture available today. And the UBP-X800 is ready for them. On compatible Ultra HD TVs (including these from Sony), you'll get deeply detailed picture contrast. We're talking the darkest and brightest content side by side in the same image.
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
The UBP-X800's high-grade internal digital-to-analog converter ensures all your music sounds clear and detailed. The USB port accepts thumb drives you load with music files — even lossless and uncompressed formats, including high-resolution DSD. Plus, when you connect the player to your network via Wi-Fi, it becomes the gateway to a whole-home audio system.
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 Instant Video.
Dual-band Wi-Fi gives you the strong connection needed for streaming 4K. (Keep in mind, we recommend having an internet speed of 20Mbps or faster for 4K streaming.)
...and multi-room music, too
Along with all the streaming video goodness, this player also turns your connected home theater speakers into a wireless music hub. Download Sony's free SongPAL™ app, and control the player from your iOS® or Android™ device. The app gives you wireless access to the music stored on your phone or a DLNA-connected server, plus streaming services like Spotify® Connect.
You can also control other compatible Sony speakers and components — all from the same SongPAL app. Listen to different songs in each room, or the same thing throughout the house. You can even stream movie or music audio from the UBP-X800 to other rooms.
Beam sound to headphones wirelessly via Bluetooth
The UBP-X800 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.

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|

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.
HDMI 2.0a Output + HDMI Audio Only Output: 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 2.0a spec. You can choose to use the HDMI Out 2 to send audio only to your A/V 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) Video: With HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology, the Ultra HD Blu-ray Player delivers dynamic UHD content in exceptional quality with a greater range of color contrast and brightness, enhancing details from the original film format. Experience sharp contrasts and brightness with deeper blacks and brighter whites. HDR video signals contain up to 100x the brightness of a standard (SDR) signal, massively increasing peak brightness while retaining deep and highly detailed blacks, for an incredible viewing experience.
- Compatible HDR Formats: This Ultra HD Blu-ray player supports HDR 10, but does not support Dolby Vision HDR.
- HDR-to-SDR Conversion: When playing 4K HDR content on a 4K SDR television, the UBP-X800 utilizes a unique Sony algorithm to reproduce the proper brightness and color gradations to provide the best picture possible.
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.

- 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 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 UBP-X800 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.

I bought this to go with my xbr-75x940e that I bought from you. You told me that my SU-WL810 L that I previously bought from you would work, it doesn't. Y'all are a good company. Just be sure about the info. The xbr-75x940e replaced an xbr-75x940D that I bought from you. [ JESSE Apr 01, 2018 ]
We feel the 4K players are only get better in a year or two, so we didn't want to invest in an Oppo yet. Plus we already own a regular Blu-ray Oppo. The other 4K's did not have features that were important - only the Sony and Oppo have those. [ Tim Mar 30, 2018 ]
The choice was originally the Oppo UDP-203, but the Sony had almost identical specs ad features that I would use. The streaming aspect was not of interest on either unit as I already have a Roku Stick. Obviously, the build quality and the ability to do a lot of fine tuning on the Oppo make it a standout, but for the features I would like and the tremendous cost difference, the Sony became my final choice. I do have Oppo headphones, though (no, not the thousand dollar ones). [ Dean Mar 27, 2018 ]

Chose this unit on sale for my Samsung 65" KS8000 4k TV I purchased a year ago based upon my research. Wanted the 2 HDMI outputs -- one for video and one for my Bose Audio. Wanted Dolby Vision but not for the much higher price. Bought from Crutchfield because of their 60 day return policy, and their support. Also very good online product info and advise. [ James Dec 29, 2017 ]
Recommendation by CS and confirmed my research. [ Arthur Dec 28, 2017 ]
Seemed like a logical alternative to buying OPPO given that Dolby Vision is not quite a reality in the players yet except OPPO which is too expensive. The standards change so often I wont buy the expensive equipment. I looked at the Panasonics and would have bought the DMP-UB300 or UB400 but it appeared to be exclusive to Europe. There must be some reason for that. [ Mike Dec 25, 2017 ]
Great product line. Never had a problem with Sony. 4k compatible. [ Nels Dec 25, 2017 ]

I wanted a quality player that could showcase the capabilities of 4K and HDR. The two contenders were this Sony and the LG UP970, but after reading reviews and hearing about the disc noise heard in some LG players and slightly better upscaling (subjective) available with the Sony I decided to go with the Sony.

I've been a very long-time Crutchfield customer and have always respected their product offerings as being reliable. I appreciate their great service as well. Lastly, based on Adam's input and my reading-up on this Blu-Ray player, I felt it would be versatile enough to meet our present and future needs.... for when we buy a 4K TV down the road. [ Karl Aug 23, 2017 ]
It is the lowest priced, true universal player (UHD, BR, DVD, SACD, DVD-A) available, and the user reviews at sites like AVS Forum are pretty solid. I do not yet own a UHD TV, and I hope my Panasonic plasma lasts for at least another 5 years, but I recently upgraded to an Anthem AVR with Atmos support, and it seems that to get Atmos, one must buy UHD discs; standard 1080P BluRays often do not include Atmos. The player can downscale to 1080P, so I will be good to go today, and tomorrow. [ BRIAN Aug 23, 2017 ]

I have a Sony Blu-Ray player that has performed very well until just recently. The reviews I saw on your website of this Sony player range from very good to spectacular and I was impressed. The remote control also factors in because Sony has large well-spaced buttons on its remote. Most of the Blu-Ray players I seen have small remotes with very tiny buttons. It is very difficult to avoid pressing two or three buttons at the same time on other manufacturers remotes. [ Brian Apr 19, 2017 ]

Out of the few UHD 4K HDR players available, this Sony was the most versatile, playing my DVD-A, SACD, CD, DVD formats as well as the 4K Blu-ray, all at an affordable price. I've been waiting for the release and to see who would get it first. Crutchfield pulled no punches, not promising it before the release date, but told me when it would be available (today), then followed through. Thanks. [ David Mar 15, 2017 ]

The X700 now supports Dolby Vision. The firmware was released last month. I bought two X700 models in the last half of June and both players shipped with Dolby Vision out of the box, and another firmware update was installed after I set them up. I initially purchased the X800 thinking it was a better player, but when I realized it did not support Dolby Vision, I exchanged it for the X700. I contacted Sony and they have no plans to add Dolby Vision to the X800, likely because the hardware in the X800 cannot support it. [ Peter Jul 16, 2018 ]
I played the latest STAR WARS movie this weekend, which is in Dolby Vision, and it played fine. [ Lenton Apr 16, 2018 ]
I have an atmos setup and everything runs through a yamaha av. I believe that the sony does decode vision. When I have played the latest dvds with HDR and 4k with atmos it works fine. [ Nathan Apr 04, 2018 ]
From what I'm hearing, no. [ PAUL Apr 02, 2018 ]
This is a much wanted feature but probably not going to happen. [ Craig Apr 02, 2018 ]
No, it will never get Dolby Vision, it doesn't have the right chipset to support it. If you need Dolby Vision the X700 is one way to go although it has yet to receive that update. [ Havens Apr 02, 2018 ]
1 answer I'm experiencing a very brief audio "drop out" when listening to CD's or SACD's on this player. I'm using an "outboard" digital to analog converter (ROOFULL Digital Optical to Analog Audio Converter, Digital Optical Toslink (SPDIF) & Coaxial to Analog RCA (L/R) and 3.5mm Stereo Audio Converter Adapter (192KHz 24bit ) with Fiber and Coax Cable), as my amp and preamp do not have digital inputs and the player does not have RCA outputs. I've played around with the various settings on the player, but nothing seems to affect it. The playback sounds great. Again, it's just a noticeable drop-out every 15 minutes or so. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks. [ New User Jan 24, 2018 ]

on this sony model, there is no front panel display for track number, time, etc [ JAMES R Dec 21, 2017 ]
No, there is no front display on this unit. [ Havens Dec 21, 2017 ]
No, the Sony UBP-X800 player does not display metadata for music CDs, although it does play all formats including MP3, DVD-Audio, and SACD. Thus, you have to refer to the track list on the CD. I turn my TV off when playing CDs via this player. The sound quality is excellent and on par with more expensive universal UHD 4K Blu-ray players. [ DAVE Dec 21, 2017 ]

No, but you will need a 4K TV and hi-speed UHD HDMI cable to play 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. [ DAVE Nov 14, 2017 ]
No, it will play regular DVD's on an HDTV set, but you will need a 4K TV and 4K DVD's to take advantage of the player's full capabilities. [ William Nov 13, 2017 ]
This player has 4K output, so to fully appreciate it you would need a 4K capable TV. The player does play DVD and BluRay as well. [ Robert Nov 13, 2017 ]
no you do not need a 4k tv to play DVDs on the UBPX800. in the setup, set the output resolution to auto and it will output to what your TV can handle [ JAMES R Nov 13, 2017 ]
No, this will work with regular HDTV's as well. That is what I am doing right now. Planning to switch to a 4k TV later so I just bought this to be future ready. You can play 4K disks also even without a 4K TV. Randy... [ Randy Nov 13, 2017 ]
No, you do not need a 4k TV. It will play on any tv and is a great unit. [ Judith Nov 13, 2017 ]
No. It will play DVDs fine on your current set. [ Havens Nov 13, 2017 ]
No. The DVDs will play fine without 4K tv... you just won't be seeing 4K quality [ Michael Nov 13, 2017 ]
Yes, if you stop the playback on a disk, it will resume at the same spot once you start it again. If you take the disk out it will ask if you want to resume playback when you put it back in even weeks later. No, there is no way to adjust individual speaker volume. [ Havens Oct 12, 2017 ]
As long as your TV is UltraHD compatible, then from the X800 in the home screen choose Setup then choose Screen Settings and look for 4K Upscale Setting and choose Auto2. This will cause the X800 to do the upscaling. [ James Jul 18, 2017 ]
i set the output resoloution to "auto". my understanding is that player will upscale to highest scan that TV can handle. in my case, player is connected to a sony 4K tv. [ JAMES R Jul 17, 2017 ]
Yes. Set the audio output to "Bitstream". This will ensure you provide the multi-channel soundtrack to your speaker whenever it's available. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan Jul 20, 2017 ] Staff
The only way to connect an equalizer to this would be to use the coaxial DAC like this one but only use it when listening to music: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120CSDAC/item.html It will not decode movies, but can decode stereo audio and change the connection to RCA so that it can be sent to an equalizer.

Not sure [ Mervyn Aug 05, 2018 ]
The manual didn't say so I had to call Sony. Their tech said that this will stream a 1080P MKV video with Dolby TrueHD audio from a DLNA computer. HTH! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul Jul 03, 2017 ] Staff

You have to download the Netflix app after setup; the player does not come with the app pre-installed. [ DAVE May 04, 2017 ]
I don't use it for Netflix. I get Netflix though Dish. [ DWIGHT J May 02, 2017 ]
Don't use Netflix. Sorry. otherwise, great player. [ RICHARD May 02, 2017 ]
Works perfectly. No problems at all. [ Judith May 02, 2017 ]
Works fine. Also great with Amazon -- and more apps on the way. Great player! [ Craig May 02, 2017 ]
The Netflix app is pre-installed. You will connect your player to the internet in the initial setup, and then you're set to watch Netflix [ Robert May 01, 2017 ]
Awesome. Easy to use and fantastic quality image. [ BILL May 01, 2017 ]
I have my UBP-X800 connected to my LAN, not the wireless. With the higher bandwidth the LAN supplies, I have not had any issues using Netflix. Netflix is one of the many apps available on the UBP-X800. [ Robert May 01, 2017 ]
in a word, fine. watched a netflix movie this past saturday without any issue. i have a 100mbps from the cable provider. [ JAMES R May 01, 2017 ]
It works very well with Netflix. It supports HDR and looks great. This is a new model and there was a recent firmware update that improved playback and we can expect others to come along. This should be on your shortlist of UHD players. Good price and a very solid build. [ Havens May 01, 2017 ]
I've had no problem setting up and using Netflix. The UMP-X800 has excellent wireless capability. I have it set up on a 5GHz network and it loads quickly and streams flawlessly. 4K does buffer in the beginning sometimes so Netflix will downgrade the feed initially. After a minute or two it switched up to 4K and if you run it back to the beginning it won't downgrade. However, because there are only a couple of apps available, I use another device for streaming and have only used this player for Netflix a couple of times (initial setup and streaming 4K). [ CHRIS May 01, 2017 ]
Works really good! No problems! [ ABRAHAM May 01, 2017 ]
Yes, you can. You can use the optical audio out to pass the audio signal to TX SR805 and HDMI to pass the video signal to TV directly. You will get pretty decent sound. However, UBP-X800 can help you do lot more with the sound. [ Lianxiang Mar 30, 2017 ]
Yes it would be possible to use this player with your old receiver - although not ideal. The player has two HDMI outputs, HDMI1 would need to connectect directly to your 4K TV and HDMI2 would connect to your receiver for the sound support. The player is capable of outputting more formats of audio streams than your receiver supports but the handshaking between the two should straighten out any differences. [ David Mar 28, 2017 ]
Maybe, but don't count on it. I tried it with my old Sony ES receiver and it didn't work. My receiver doesn't accept 4K inputs and the 2nd HDMI output on the player didn't work for me. I think it only outputs audio over HDMI and my receiver didn't like that. [ Jens Mar 27, 2017 ]
no reason to buy this if you are not upgrading all hardware to 4k. [ Charles H. Mar 27, 2017 ]
Sure it will work with your Onkyo. That said there are a few limitations. The Onkyo will not pass 4k signals to your TV if you have a 4k display. If you do have a 4k TV you can connect this Sony player directly to the TV using the HDMI 1 output and send the audio only to the Onkyo using HDMI 2 output on the Sony. If you don't have a 4k display the Sony will still work for 1080P content. [ Havens Mar 27, 2017 ]
YES. The X800 has two HDMI outputs and the one marked AUDIO only can go directly into your receiver and the VIDEO HDMI output can be plugged directly into your 4K TV's HDMI input. [ Ralph Mar 27, 2017 ]
Yes, you can still use the Sony UBP-X800 with your Onkyo TX SR 805. However, since the SR 805 is HDMI 1.3 capable which means it won't handle UltraHD 4K and it won't pass HDR (HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 are needed) the best it will do is 1080P, which the X800 will down convert to 1080P when you play UltraHD Blu-ray Discs or other UHD 4K content. The SR805 cannot not handle Dolby Atoms as well, but it will pass Dolby Digital Plus and TrueHD and DTS HD. The X800 is a great player. Very fast as disc loading and very quite. Make sure you use quality HDMI cables. I hope this answers your question. [ James Mar 26, 2017 ]
As long as the Onkyo receiver in question supports 4K and HDR video signals, then it would work just fine to connect it via HDMI. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Larry Mar 24, 2017 ] Staff
