3D Blu-ray player with 4K upscaling and Wi-Fi®
Our take on the Samsung BD-J6300 by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
The cure for a dumb TV is a smart Blu-ray player
I have a 10-year-old TV that still produces a great picture, but it has no Internet smarts whatsoever. I could just pick up a little media streamer box, but I subscribe to Netflix's streaming service and disc service. On certain titles I definitely want to enjoy Blu-ray's superior picture and sound quality. So for someone like me, Samsung's BD-J6300 Blu-ray player is a smart way to go.
This player's built-in dual-band Wi-Fi® provides speedy access to streaming video services like Netflix®, Hulu®, and Amazon Instant Video. Binge-watching your favorite TV shows has never been easier. Want to throw on some tunes? Play a CD, stream from a music service like Pandora® or Spotify®, or wirelessly connect to a compatible networked PC via DLNA technology and play songs from your computer.
Impressive picture and sound
The BD-J6300 helps make the most of your high-definition TV. It plays Blu-ray titles in 1080p HD and offers video upconversion for standard DVDs. If you have a 4K Ultra HD TV, this player has 4K upscaling so it can join in the fun. Blu-ray also lets you experience the full sonic capabilities of your home theater speakers as well — lossless surround sound formats are supported, including Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD®.
Do more with your USB thumb drives
Like a lot of Blu-ray players, the BD-J6300 features a front-panel USB port that lets you play back of a variety of music, photo, and video files stored on a thumb drive. But unlike most players, this one also allows you to rip CD audio to a thumb drive in MP3 format.

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. 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.
Firmware/Software Upgrade: 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. The player's Software Upgrade menu allows you to upgrade the player's software & firmware for these performance improvements & additional services. You can upgrade via Network or USB.
Note: Visit the Samsung Download Center for the latest Firmware/Software updates.
USB Port (w/ ripping): The Samsung Blu-ray disc player features a front-panel USB (type-A) port that allows playback of a variety of audio files, still-image files, and video files stored on a USB mass storage class device (formatted in FAT16, FAT32, or NTFS). The player even allows you to rip CD-Audio to a connected USB msc device in MP3 format, or copy non-copyrighted music, video, and photo images from a CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, BD-R/RE disc, or even a connected network device or Cloud service onto a USB device. The USB port also allows you to perform software upgrades using a USB flash drive. In addition, it can be used to add more local storage for BD-Live content.
Note: A USB device consuming more than 500mA requires a separate power supply device for normal operation.
Media File Formats: The Samsung BD-J6300 Blu-ray disc player supports the following video, photo, and music files recorded onto BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD-R discs; or downloaded onto a USB thumbdrive.

HDMI 1.4: The Samsung Blu-ray player is equipped with an HDMI (v.1.4) output. HDMI simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio all in one cable. The HDMI output resolution can be set to 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p when playing a DVD or Blu-ray Disc; also 1080/24p when playing a compatible BD.
- 1080/24p: Movies are typically filmed at 24 frames per second and some Blu-ray Discs use the same frame rate. If your TV will accept a 1080/24p signal, the BD-J6300 can pass the signal in its native form, without converting the video.
- 4:4:4 Max Color Subsampling: The Blu-ray player's HDMI output will support up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of high-definition video.
Note: The Blu-ray player provides no analog video outputs.

The unit also offers 720p, 1080i, and 1080p upscaling if your TV does not support Ultra-HD, but is Full-HD. It also supports 480p and 480i output if your television is not HD-compatible. In addition, the Samsung Blu-ray disc player provides a Progressive mode to improve picture quality when viewing a DVD movie.
Note: To enjoy 4K, you must have a compatible 4K television connected to the Blu-ray player via HDMI.
Full HD 3D: The Samsung BD-J6300 3D Blu-ray disc player supports 3D playback of high-definition 3D Blu-ray discs when connected to a 3D-Ready HDTV via HDMI, along with wearing a pair 3D vision glasses. You can select from three 3D modes to suit your viewing needs.

Deep/x.v. Color: Deep Color allows more accurate color reproduction with deep color depth. The Samsung BD-J6300 must be connected to a Deep Color compatible TV via HDMI for this feature to function. The BD-J6300 also supports x.v.Color; meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs, such as AVCHD discs (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format).
Video Settings: The Samsung Blu-ray disc offers a variety of video adjustments to fine tune the TV's picture image.
- Screen Size: You can enter the actual screen size (up to 116") of your TV, so that the player can adjust the image according to the screen size and display an optimal image.

Bonus View: The Bonus View 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.
Dolby Digital/DTS Surround Decoding: The BD-J6300 can decode the following Dolby Digital/DTS surround formats; Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio. The player must be connected to a Dolby Digital/DTS surround AV receiver which also supports these same formats via Optical or HDMI input.
Digital Output/Surround Mode Chart: You can set the unit's Digital Output (HDMI or Optical) to match the capabilities of your connected AV receiver.

Digital Audio Output: The Blu-ray disc player features a digital Optical (Toslink) output. The player's audio menu allows you to select the digital audio format that is passed through the Optical digital output; bitstream (Dolby Digital or DTS) or 2-channel PCM.
Audio Adjustments: The Blu-ray disc player provides the following audio adjustments.
- PCM Downsampling: This feature lets you choose to have 96kHz PCM signals downsampled to 48kHz before they are output to your AV receiver.

- DTS Neo:6 Mode: You can enjoy multichannel sound via the HDMI output from a 2 channel audio source.
- Dynamic Range Control: When movie soundtracks are played at low volume or from smaller speakers, the system can apply appropriate compression to make low-level content more intelligible and prevent dramatic passages from getting too loud. This is only active when a Dolby Digital signal is detected.
- Audio Sync: In some cases when the player is connected to a TV, the audio signal may not synchronize with the video signal. If this occurs, adjust the audio delay time to match the video signal. You can set the audio delay time between 0 msec and 250 msec.
Wired & Wireless Network Connection: You can set up the Samsung Blu-ray player so that it can access your home network and online Samsung Apps through your local area network (LAN) using a wired connection (RJ-45 Ethernet) or wireless connection (built-in Dual Band WiFi). You can setup a wired network connection automatically or manually. You can setup the wireless network connection using these four methods; PBC (WPS), Auto Network Search, One Foot, or Manually.

Web Browser You can access the internet using the player's Web Brower application. You can search web pages by entering a URL address or entering a keyword search. The player will archive your web browser history. You can also save "Favorite" web pages and create a "Home" page. The playback of Flash videos is also supported. The Web Browser is optimized to fill your connected TV's screen. The Web Browser provides two types of browsing; Pointer Browsing and Link Browsing.
- Pointer Browsing: When you launch the browser for the first time, Pointer Browsing is active. If you are using a mouse to navigate in the Web Browser, leave Pointer Browsing active.
- Link Browsing: If you are using your remote to navigate in the Web Browser, replace Pointer Browsing with Link Browsing. Link Browsing moves a highlight from one link to the next in the Web Browser and is much faster than Pointer Browsing if you are using your remote.
Note: The Web Browser is not compatible with Java applications. E-commerce, for purchasing products online is not supported. ActiveX is not supported.
Wireless Device Connectivity: The Samsung Blu-ray players allows wireless integration with your wireless network devices via WiFi Direct, AllShare Cast, and AllShare DLNA.
- WiFi Direct: When using WiFi Direct, you can connect directly with other devices without using a wireless router. You'll be able to wirelessly transfer personal content (such as photos & videos) to the Samsung Blu-ray player without connecting to your home network. WiFi Direct completely bypasses your WiFi access point/router, so it's easy to set up. Streaming of copy-protected content and other certain formats are not supported.
- AllShare Cast: AllShare Cast is a proprietary "screen mirroring" function which lets you wirelessly send the display from your compatible AllShare Cast Samsung mobile device to the Blu-ray player and your connected TV. This allows you to view pictures and videos that are playing on your compatible Samsung smartphone or tablet on your TV screen. No wireless router or access point required.
- AllShare DLNA: The Samsung Blu-ray disc player's AllShare function, along with its DLNA Certification allow you to watch videos (MPEG), photos (JPEG), and listen to music (MP3/WMA/AAC/FLAC) saved on your Windows PC (or other DLNA Certified media server) through the TV via its Ethernet (LAN) port or built-in WiFi (wireless). This eliminates the need to copy your photo, video, and music files to a separate USB storage device.
Note: For AllShare/DLNA, Windows PCs with XP and Vista installed require Samsung's PC Share Manager software, which can be downloaded for free from the Samsung Download Center. Not compatible with older Windows OS versions and Mac.
BD-Live: BD-Live technology allows you to download and stream bonus content such as additional scenes, shorts, trailers, movie-based games, and more from a broadband internet and home network connections (fees may apply). The BD-J6300 features an Ethernet port and built-in WiFi to connect to the internet via your home network, and features USB (type-A) port for additional storage.
Note: You must have a minimum 1GB USB memory device inserted in the unit's USB slot in order to download content from BD-Live.
On-Screen & Front-Panel Display: The Samsung Blu-ray player features an on-screen menu through its HDMI output. It also features a front-panel display. Menu text can be changed to English, French, or Spanish.
Quick Start: Quick Start speeds up the load time on movies, so discs start faster after they're inserted into the Blu-ray player. The Samsung Blu-ray player has a start-up time of approximately 0.5 seconds in Quick Start mode (10.3 seconds in normal mode). In Quick Start mode, it takes approximately 15.1 seconds for a Blu-ray disc to begin playback (37.7 seconds in normal mode).
Note: The Start Up/Play Back Time tests were started with the Blu-ray player initially turned off & in standby mode. The Start Up Time test was stopped when the player's Home Menu screen appeared. The Play Back Time test was stopped when the Blu-ray disc began playback.
Parental Lock: The Parental Lock function works in conjunction with Blu-ray Disc/DVDs that have been assigned a rating which helps you control the types of Blu-ray Discs/DVDs that your family watches. There are up to 8 ratings levels on a disc. The rating levels are protected by a customer user 4-digit password. You can also restrict access to inappropriate web pages by allowing access only to the web sites you have registered.
Remote Support: The Samsung Remote Support service offers you one-on-one support with a Samsung Technician who can remotely diagnose the Blu-ray player, adjust its settings, perform a factory reset, and install recommended firmware updates; the player must be connected to your home network and the Internet.
Screen Saver + Auto Power Off: If you leave the player in the stop mode for more than 5 minutes without using it, a screen saver will appear on the TV. If the player is left in the screen saver more for more than 20 minutes, the power will automatically turn off.
Wireless Remote: The supplied remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of functions on Samsung TVs. The remote controls the TV's power on/off, input select, and volume up/down. The playback controls of the remote are glow-in-the-dark. This remote control also has Braille points on the Power, Play, Enter, and #5 buttons for the visually impaired.
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC): Anynet+ is a convenient feature that offers linked operation with other Samsung components that have the Anynet+ feature, and lets you control those products with one Samsung remote control. To operate this function, you must connect this player's "Main" HDMI output to an Anynet+ Samsung TV using an HDMI cable.
Keyboard & Mouse Compatible: The Samsung Blu-ray player will also support a USB-enabled keyboard and mouse (both sold separately) through its front-panel USB port. This make web browsing much simpler.

I wanted a new Blue Ray player with built in WiFi streaming for Netflix, Amazon and Hulu and one that still has an optical digital output for the audio.

Lightning fried my entire home system, needed to replace an old DVD player and a Roku, so decided to buy a BD Player with onboard Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. This was the best rated lower priced unit available. I love Crutchfield because you have real support and you care. I look forward to getting this unit hooked up. [ Adam Sep 12, 2016 ]

This is a newer version of model I was researching. Customer reviews and settings advice convinced me. Crutchfield reputation for customer service was another factor. I will be buying additional items from Crutchfield. Bill, Harris, NY [ William Sep 04, 2016 ]
In my experience Samsung BD/DVD players sync well with Samsung TV's. Unlike many units these days, this one has more heft and includes an information display. [ H Sep 03, 2016 ]
My Sony Blu Ray player is acting up. I can sometimes get it to work with a hard reset. Anyway, I have had terrible luck with Sony products. I have had a Sony 46" TV, CD carousel, 2 Walkmans, and now Blu Ray player all go bad prematurely. I need something inexpensive to replace it so I can still watch Netflix and play discs until I replace my TV with and internet ready 4K. Hopefully this Samsung will do the job. [ Steve Aug 29, 2016 ]
I have a 4k tv and since this has upscaling to 4k and wi-fi smart tv features I can use it both on my smart tv and my dumb tv (haha). It also received good ratings and for the price it works. In addition, I don't intend on purchasing too many 4k blu-ray disks given the good upscaling ability of samsung. [ Bruce Aug 22, 2016 ]
It was one of the better rated Blu Ray players for the price. [ Scott Aug 16, 2016 ]
I replaced a rather troublesome Sony unit. Glad I did Blu-ray Discs I could not watch, L can watch now. It ialmost instantaneously loads a Blu-ray Disc. I would strongly recommend this unit. [ Marilyn Aug 10, 2016 ]
It is the only reasonably priced blu-ray player with a digital optical out port [ Russell Aug 08, 2016 ]
Because the previous Samsung DVD player does not have any kind of indicator that it is on. Since it is black and sits in a cabinet, that is quite a problem. This new player has a screen that displays "player." [ CHRISTIAN Aug 07, 2016 ]
Samsung brand. [ Christopher Jul 27, 2016 ]
Price, 4K upscaling and Wifi. [ Robert Jun 25, 2016 ]
recommended [ Steven Jun 25, 2016 ]
Has an optical output so I can send surround sound signal to my soundbar! [ D Jun 16, 2016 ]
I'VE WANTED ONE OF THESE SINCE 1972. [ DN Jun 06, 2016 ]
It was embarrassing not to have Blu Ray DVD in this day in age... Crutchfield's website changed all that and made the process of selecting one easy. Can't wait to see the difference and step into new technology! [ Rob Jun 02, 2016 ]
price and features [ Thomas Jun 01, 2016 ]
Two reasons: 1. It listed Amazon Video in the initial description and 2. If I have trouble, the tech guys will help me (they have before on other things). [ mark May 21, 2016 ]
This unit will replace a much older (pre-BluRay) Samsung which has given many years of good trouble-free service. Won't switch now. [ RALPH May 21, 2016 ]
Need a 3D Blu Ray player for my Samsung TV. [ Barry May 20, 2016 ]
SAMSUNG IS A GREAT PRODUCT AND BRAND. THIS IS MY SECOND SAMSUNG PRODUCT. [ EULAS Apr 27, 2016 ]
Like the features [ Michael Apr 07, 2016 ]
7 questions already asked
Yes, see page 48 of the User Manual, the player supports DTS-HD Master Audio up to PCM 7.1ch via the HDMI interface and PCM 2ch via the Optical Interface; [ Michael May 30, 2017 ]
It probably syncs with the phone but check with salespeople where you purchased the phone or Crutchfield. They are always helpful. [ Lawrence E. Mar 11, 2017 ]
Don't know for sure but it is a smart tv and you should be able to sync it with your phone. I suggest you speak with the salespeople at the locaiton you purchased your phone. [ Lawrence E. Mar 11, 2017 ]
If it is, I do not recommend using your SmartPhone to operate a DVD player or TV. When I've done this I always go back to the remote that comes with the device because it is easier to use and works faster. [ Michael Mar 11, 2017 ]
I was able to find that model on Dynex's website and they do list an HDMI input on it. You will be able to use this player with your TV! HTH! My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul Mar 17, 2017 ] Staff
Should be as long as you have hdmi input [ Paul Mar 14, 2017 ]
Excellant [ Gerald Jan 01, 2017 ]
I cannot answer this question as I have not played any 3d DVDs. [ Marilyn Jan 01, 2017 ]
Outstanding picture and much better sound separation. [ Harold Jan 01, 2017 ]
i have been using this player for about 4 months with a epson 3d projector and love the results. I would recommended it. [ RICK Jan 01, 2017 ]
hi - I would highly recommend an HDMI splitter and a toslink (optical audio) splitter, if you are using the optical audio output from your Samsung, if not you only need the HDMI splitter. The splitter, depending on the model you buy, will allow you to plug in 2-4 HDMI devices. The splitter then has one HDMI output which you would connect to your TV. I have two XBoxes, a DVD player, and the Samsung plugged into my splitter. I am certain the folks at Crutchfield will be able to help you with a suitable splitter :-) Enjoy - Gary B. [ Gary Dec 24, 2016 ]
You can purchase a switch which has additional ports. I solved the same thing and purchased A werestorm with 5 ports. This solved the problem. [ RICHARD Dec 22, 2016 ]

Not sure about this but I bought it knowing that there are very few 4kmovies out there unless you stream them and, I understand, those are limited. I think by the time the tech people begin putting everything in 4k I'll be ready for a new Blu-ray. [ Lawrence E. Oct 13, 2016 ]
Yes, it only upscales Blu-rays to 4K. You cannot play 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. That being said, it does a remarkable job in it's upscaling. I've had to reduce my Samsung 4K TV's sharpness because the upscaling made it too sharp. (i.e., increased graininess, pores in actor's faces, etc.) [ Christopher Sep 13, 2016 ]
Yes, this player only supports 4K upscaling; very few players support 4K movies and they are $300+ [ Michael Sep 12, 2016 ]
I can't answer your question because I haven't tried a 4k movie on the set. [ JOHN Sep 12, 2016 ]
sorry don't know the answer [ THEODORA Sep 12, 2016 ]
