Sony UBP-X1000ES Ultra HD Blu-ray player review


Will lightening strike twice for Sony's second UHD player?

Excellent 4K UHD picture performance ; Accomplished audio player, with universal disc support ; Premium build-quality ; Solid collection of streaming services

No Dolby Vision support ; Lacks MQA file playback ; Cheaper UBP-X800 is the better value buy

Offering superb video and musicality, this high-end Sony is a star performer. But sans Dolby Vision, it seems feature-lite at this end of the UHD player market...

Sony finally has a 4K Blu-ray player, but it's not what we hoped for


In August Microsoft said it was supporting 4K Blu-ray discs in its revitalized Xbox One S game console. To follow suit, rival Sony was expected to announce its new PlayStation 4 Pro would also support the new hi-res format -- one which it had also...

Sony UBP-X1000ES Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Review


Sony's latest 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player – the UBP-X1000ES – adds a display and more outputs but does it do enough to justify the higher price tag?

Universal disc support ; Superb disc playback ; Excellent audio performance ; Good range of features ; Front panel display ; Analogue outputs ; Very quiet in use and well-built

No Dolby Vision support ; No multichannel analogue outputs ; Very expensive

The Sony UBP-X1000ES is a perfectly good 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player that delivers a flawless performance as far as playback is concerned. Whether you're watching UHD Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, regular Blu-ray or good old-fashioned DVD, it can deliver a...

Sony UBP-X1000ES (Test)


Alte Bekannte: Die Fernbedienung wurde vom kleinen Bruder UBP-X800 übernommen. Sie ist angenehm leicht, übersichtlich gegliedert und verfügt über die wichtigsten Schnellwahl-Tasten. Auch zum Streaming-Dienst Netflix gelangt man mit nur einem Druck.

Mit seinem Universal-Laufwerk und der sehr guten Bild- und Tonqualität sowie allen wichtigen Video-Apps ist der UBP-X1000ES ein toller UHD-Blu-ray-Player. Allerdings fällt der Mehrwert ohne Dolby Vision gegenüber dem halb so teuren UBP-X800 gering aus....

Lettore Sony UHD 4K UBP-X1000ES


Le caratteristiche del nuovo Sony X1000, compatibile anche con SACD e file audio ad alta risoluzione, ne fanno uno dei lettori UHD 4K più interessanti del momento; oltre alla compatibilità con Netflix, l'uscita audio stereo analogica, è presente anche...

Stiamo parlando di 500 Euro di differenza e, per quello che ho potuto sentire, siamo ben lontani dal reale valore economico che separa le due macchine. Credevo di aver trovato il lettore perfetto, con app di Netflix, visione dei contenuti in 24p (anche...
