3D Blu-ray player with 4K upscaling, Wi-Fi®, and Bluetooth®
Sony BDP-S6700 - Send audio from the player to a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones (not included)
Our take on the Sony BDP-S6700 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Your home theater system's jack of all trades
I've built a solid Blu-ray collection, so I'm glad to see Sony is still committed to making great disc players. The Sony BDP-S6700 won't play Ultra-HD 4K Blu-ray discs, but it will upconvert standard Blu-ray and DVD discs to near-4K quality for playback on your Ultra HD TV. And this versatile player also offers popular streaming video services and delivers serious picture detail to a 1080p screen.
If you're connecting to a home theater audio system, the BDP-S6700 supports high-resolution movie sound formats, like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS® HD. It will play CDs, SACDs, and music files from a thumb drive. Plus, it offers a wide variety of streaming audio options.
Dual-band Wi-Fi means smooth video streaming...
These days you can watch many of the best shows, movies, and even live sports on streaming services. And Sony has you covered. An extensive library of over 300 online apps includes Netflix®, Hulu®, Amazon Instant Video, and MLB.TV. Dual-band Wi-Fi gives you a strong, quick connection, and Sony's noise reduction technology improves the quality of your streamed videos. On top of that, Miracast™ technology lets you “mirror” what you see on your smartphone or tablet on your TV's big screen.
Send sound from the Sony BDP-S6700 to a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones (not included) for late night viewing.
...and music streaming, too
If you're a Spotify® Premium subscriber, Spotify Connect lets you play your albums and playlists through your connected speakers. Or you can download Sony's free SongPAL™ app for iOS® or Android™. It gives you wireless access to the music stored on your phone, Pandora® Internet radio, and even music stored on a DLNA-connected server.
Beam sound wirelessly to headphones via Bluetooth
The BDP-6700's built-in Bluetooth lets you send the sound of your movies, shows, and other media to a pair of Bluetooth headphones. This helps with late night binge-watching. You can catch all the dialogue and hear all the loud, exciting sound effects without waking everyone up.

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.

Note: The BDP-S6700 plays Region A Blu-ray discs and Region 1 DVDs. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.
Firmware Updates: 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. Visit the Sony eSupport Site for the latest firmware update information.
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.
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 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||MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, WAV,|
|Video||AVCHD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, WMV9, XVID|
|Photo||JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP|
HDMI Output: The BDP-S6700's HDMI 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, 4K, or set to Auto (which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television).
- 4K UHD Upscale: Experience your favorite movies in up to 4x the detail of Full HD with 4K upscaling. Connected to a compatible 4K TV, an advanced video processor inside the Blu-ray player converts standard video into a signal nearer to 4K resolution (3840 x 2160). With 8 million pixels in the picture, you get sharper, more detailed images, and the higher image quality lets you sit closer to the screen.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The Blu-ray player supports 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0 color subsampling. An "Auto" setting detects the connected TV type and switches to the matching color setting. With 4:4:4, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
- 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-S6700 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.
Note: This player does not offer any analog audio/video outputs.
3D-Ready w/ 2D-3D Conversion: The Sony BDP-S6700 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-S6700 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.
Advanced Color Technologies: The Sony BDP-S6700 Blu-ray player features Sony's proprietary Triluminos Color technology & Super Bit Mapping, as well as supports Deep Color.
- Triluminos Color: The BDP-S6700 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.
- Super Bit Mapping: Super Bit Mapping reduces color banding by smoothing the gradation of video signals.
- 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. The Deep Color function can be set to 10-bit, 12-bit, 16-bit, Auto, or Off.
IP Content Noise Reduction Pro: See it all clearly with IP Content Noise Reduction PRO, a combination of picture technologies. Noise reduction enhances low-resolution web videos, while HD Reality Enhancer does pixel-by-pixel analysis for texture and color definition. Enjoy more lifelike images with improved contrast thanks to Pure Picture Control, and smooth color gradation from Super Bit Mapping
Video Settings: The BDP-S6700 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 to enhance the picture quality of streamed network content.
Screen Settings: The Sony BDP-S6700 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
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.
Surround Sound Decoders: The BDP-S6700 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).

Dolby Digital Plus also includes the standard Dolby Digital bit stream and is compatible with all current Dolby Digital processors using the coaxial digital output.
- Dolby TrueHD: Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel surround sound for the next generation optical discs. The reproduced sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.
- DTS-HD High Resolution Audio: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio supports a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multi-channel surround. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with a lossy compression.
- DTS-HD Master Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps and uses lossless compression (Lossless), and DTS-HD Master Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.
Note: Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD are only output via the player's HDMI output.
Digital Music Enhancer: Breathe new life into your digital music with Digital Music Enhancer; a combination of three Sony audio technologies.

Good price [ Daniel Aug 22, 2017 ]
I have all Sony components... the LG that I had had quit working after 6 yrs. of faithful service... surviving much physical abuse of earthquakes and moving overseas....so no complaints about that one... I bought it overseas..so it was no compatible with regular DVDs made here for the US.. .so ... had to get one made for US DVDs and get the Sony...so there you have it... [ ARTHUR Aug 20, 2017 ]

Excellent price and features [ MICHAEL Aug 19, 2017 ]
Supports SACD and 3D BluRay ... not many affordable choices that offer this. [ Brad Aug 19, 2017 ]
Good price,feature equipped & compact size.Such a deal. [ RALPH Aug 16, 2017 ]
Love the low price, been needing a new DVD player with 3D capabilities. [ David Aug 15, 2017 ]
To give it to a friend! [ Alfred Aug 14, 2017 ]
Our old Bluray player quit today. Went to Crutchfield and found exactly what we need. With Free Shipping. [ Hub Aug 12, 2017 ]
Crutchfield support in case any issues. What swayed me was the Bluetooth capability for my kids to be able to watch Hulu and Netflix w wireless headphones so their mother and I can watch what we want in our room or sleep without telling them to "turn it down". [ Thomas Aug 09, 2017 ]
Love the Blu-Ray player... integrates well with my Sony HDTV and my Denon Multimedia receiver. Replaces a Samsung unit that bricked on me and decided to try the Sony instead [ Stanley Aug 09, 2017 ]
I needed to upgrade my old multi-zone receiver to meet today's new technology standards. Ryan and Chad helped me select the correct replacement receiver to meet those needs and answered every question I had. I won't purchase any electronic equipment from any other source. These folks know their stuff and won't steer you wrong! [ MARK Jul 29, 2017 ]
To match with the Sony receiver. [ L Jul 29, 2017 ]
reviewed as the best choice from researching [ AL Jul 24, 2017 ]
I wanted a unit that would be considered more reliable. Reviews on Crutchfield combined with a favorable review by a leading consumer organization provides that confidence. I originally was considering a Samsung BD-J5700 or J5900. They are priced near the same or a bit less, but the Sony BDP-S6700 offers Bluetooth connectivity and 4K upscaling for a relatively small increase in cost (useful if I purchase a 4K TV before this unit dies). The Samsung model with such features is a bigger jump in cost. [ MARK Jul 17, 2017 ]
Good value, trusted name, good reviews [ Garey Jul 09, 2017 ]
I have always liked Sony products and having Sony TV And external Sony speaker system I hope the remotes will consolidate [ D Jul 08, 2017 ]
Overall quality of Sony from past experience. This particular device has a number of features that should not become obsolete anytime in the near future. [ Rashad Jul 08, 2017 ]
The reviews seemed quite favorable overall and Sony typically does a good job with their product line-up. I just needed a quality product for intermittent use on a secondary system without "breaking the bank" to get operational. [ Tim Jul 05, 2017 ]
Ratings [ Scott Jun 26, 2017 ]
Only one w/Bluetooth for under $100 and good ratings don't hurt. [ D Jun 25, 2017 ]
Reasons: 1) have Sony 4k TV and this unit upscales 1080p DVDs to my TV's 4k picture 2) TV and player are both Sony, so theoretically less compatibility issues 3) unit has remote control 4) unit has Ethernet port, hopefully will allow easier firmware updates and app downloads 5) Sony quality (last but not least) [ Phillip Jun 25, 2017 ]
My older Blue Ray Player has started to fail and this SONY Model has the blue tooth and 4K upgrade at a very good price [ William Jun 24, 2017 ]
Wanted a player to connect wirelessly to a Sony Wireless TV, hopefully to reduce compatibly issues [ Michael Jun 23, 2017 ]
Sony is very dependable. Pricing and reviews. Crutchfield always stands behind the products they sell and customer service is outstanding. [ JOSEPH Jun 23, 2017 ]
Good luck with Sony in the past good price and shipping [ JACOB Jun 20, 2017 ]

checked up on 2017 reviews..considered used or refurbished prices..Amazon..Walmart..typical others..your free shipping and no tax, cool! [ Robert May 10, 2017 ]
Moved the PS3 to our vacation home, so wanted a CD/DVD/Blueray player at home. With these units very inexpensive, I felt it OK to spend the extra dollars to upgrade to a unit which had both wifi and bluetooth capabilities. [ LARRY Apr 07, 2017 ]
highly recommended, and Crutchfield had the best price [ David Mar 15, 2017 ]
4K upscaling and 3D capability units are typically better quality than standard blu ray units. [ Mr. Mar 14, 2017 ]
Great reviews, nice price break, 4K upscaling for my UHDTV. [ Mike D Mar 09, 2017 ]

4k upscaling and prior satisfaction with Sony products [ David Jan 06, 2017 ]
Your review and sony reputation. [ Thomas Dec 30, 2016 ]
I liked the price and the technical specs. Besides that, I have worked with Rick recently on some other audio equip. Didn't buy then, this makes up for that time! Right Rick? Have a Merry Christmas & a safe and Happy New Year. Now you can hurry up and get that thing here. !!!!!!! [ J Dec 23, 2016 ]
It will work for my needs and it will replace my old Sony Blue-Ray DVD and Roku unit at a good price. [ Justin Dec 22, 2016 ]
Best bang for the buck while I wait for true 4K to come down in price [ Dave Dec 16, 2016 ]

According to my research, the Sony BDP-S6700 is the best feature packed Blu-Ray player for the price (on sale for $119). [ Alan Nov 03, 2016 ]
Chose the Sony BDP-S6700 player to go with Sony Bravia XBR-55X850D 4K TV for the upscaling feature for my Blu-ray and DVD movie collection. I don't plan to purchase 4K content whenever is comes out to replace my current movie library about 400 movies. Reviews on various online sites say this is a good player to buy and the price is right. [ Leon Sep 19, 2016 ]
Features and quality for the price, on sale. Recommended by advisor. [ R Sep 10, 2016 ]
middle priced of Sony units. Was unhappy with previous Samsung unit. Features of higher priced units did not seem to justify the added expense for me. [ Ken Sep 02, 2016 ]
Crutchfield backing, fast delivery warranty of product. [ Wayne Aug 25, 2016 ]

Upgrading 1080p bluray. Reviews say its the best 3D 4k upscalling player. [ Richie Jun 14, 2016 ]
Compact unit with attractive design that can play older DVDs as well as stream movies from Netflix. Simple remote. Previous experiences with user interfaces for Sony products very good - simple and visually appealing. Previously purchased Sony products have proven to be durable and useful with excellent value for money spent. [ SCOTT Jun 04, 2016 ]
8 questions already asked
no idea, sorry [ Sam Dec 19, 2017 ]
not sure have not tried [ KEITH A Jan 06, 2018 ]
I have no idea,and have never used this method when using this equipment [ JOHN H Dec 30, 2017 ]
No [ Frank Dec 27, 2017 ]
Never tried this option. But searching and navegating didn't found a clue. [ ISRAEL Dec 27, 2017 ]
No. It does not have a tv tuner built in. It does connect to your tv via HDMI. It also connects to the internet and can receive streaming from a huge number of sources. It also has DNLA capabilities so you can connect to a home network (we play all of our music and videos through this feature using the Serviio app). [ Charles Nov 28, 2017 ]
It's does not have TV tuner. [ ISRAEL Nov 27, 2017 ]
No [ Melissa Nov 27, 2017 ]
It will but you will need a A/V THX and DTS. Mine is an Onkyo. [ JAMES S Feb 28, 2017 ]
Sorry i can not answer only used it once [ RAYMOND Feb 28, 2017 ]
It's handles Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio of course, as well as MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, ALAC and DSD. On the video side you can play MKV, WMV and AVCHD via WI-FI and USB. [ ISRAEL Feb 28, 2017 ]
the player will work with any player with dts input on the receiver . [ james Feb 28, 2017 ]
No personal experience. But from DTS: Fully backward-compatible with existing DTS bitstreams, the newest iteration of DTS:X will also incorporate height channels. In comparison, Dolby Atmos and the last version of Dolby Pro Logic IIz also include height channels. It sound like the decoding is in the receiver and this should pass it through hdmi. You might need to just try it out. I doubt you will find any definitive answer anywhere [ BRIAN Feb 28, 2017 ]
Nop! The sony BDP-6700 Does not hook to surround sound, but the sony BDO-S6500 WILL [ ISRAEL Dec 05, 2016 ]
I have mine running into an LG 3D TV and that goes into a soundbar but I'm sure if you have a compatible receiver you can run the Sony BDP-S6700 into it and then out to surround sound - hope that helps! [ Neal Dec 05, 2016 ]
I think any DVD/Blu-ray player would "hook to a surround sound system. " can you be more specific about what your concerns are? [ Hugh Dec 04, 2016 ]
Yes. Connect a high-speed HDMI cable from the BDP-6700 to your AV receiver and then, from your AV receiver, run a second HDMI cable to your TV. If using an audio only surround receiver, you can connect the BDP-6700 to it via a coax digital cable while sending the video to your TV directly over the HDMI cable. You will need to set the appropriate menu items on all three components (BDP-6700, AV (or A) receiver, and TV) to reflect the setup that you are using. [ Charles Dec 03, 2016 ]
Sorry. Don't know. Crutchfield's Tech advisors should be able to answer this. [ GALE Dec 03, 2016 ]
Absolutely [ WILLIAM Dec 03, 2016 ]
It has an HDMI out. That plugs into any HDMI input on a surround sound recieiver. It will send whatever audio program that is encoded on whatever DVD or blue ray disc in the player. I use 5.1 surround, both DTS and Dolby digital discs on this player. HDMI contains both high definition video and surround sound audio in the same cable. Hope this helps. [ BRIAN Dec 03, 2016 ]
I'm not sure about the tv; although, it makes sense because I cam connect my Bose wireless to the Sony 6700 and my Denon receiver. [ Donn Oct 28, 2016 ]
I am not the most tech sophisticated person, Gary. With the help of others, however, I have multiple products connected to older TV's and everything works just great! Using an HDMI cord with multiple connections that I got quite inexpensively. Gale [ GALE Oct 28, 2016 ]
Country of origin is listed as Malaysia. [ Kenny Aug 20, 2016 ] Staff
I have been able to connect both my blue tooth headphones and my blue tooth speaker to the BDP-6700 (although not at the same time). I have been unable to get the blue tooth to connect the other way: that is, I cannot get my smart phone to broadcast to the BDP-6700 via blue tooth - but using Miracast, I am able to play content from my smart phone through the BDP-6700. [ Charles Dec 03, 2016 ]
I HAVE NOT TRIED TO USE EITHER ONE. MY SPEAKERS ARE WIRED THROUGH A DENON RECEIVER 2200. I HAVE NOT TRIED THE BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES. I AM SORRY THAT I AM UNABLE TO ANSWER THE QUESTION. [ Donn May 16, 2016 ]
