Sony is displaying their first consumer-level Ultra HD Blu-ray player at CES, along with a new 7.1.2 channel soundbar that sells with a wireless subwoofer. The UHD BD player, model number UBP-X800, features support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and the BT.2020 color space.

For sound, the player supports high-resolution audio at 16-bit(44.1 KHz) and 24-bit(96+ KHz), Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, DSEE HX upscaling, AAC WAV, and DSD 11.2 MHz formats.

Sony boasts the BP-X800 can “play anything,” from a wide range of audio formats to streaming video in AVCHD, WMV, XVID, MPEG2 and MPEG4 file formats.

The player will likely follow the release of Sony’s X1000ES, a professional-grade Ultra HD Blu-ray player expected to be available to custom home theater installers this Spring.

In the same demo room, Sony’s 7.1.2 channel soundbar was providing 3D surround sound through a Dolby Atmos-encoded audio track. The HT-ST5000 is the company’s upcoming flagship soundbar that includes 3 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, HDCP2.2 for 4K/HDR content, and comes stock with a wireless subwoofer.

The sound system supports High-Resolution Audio and utilizes Digital Signal Processing and S-Force PRO Front Surround technology to create an immersive audio space.

So far, Sony has been tight-lipped about pricing and release dates, but hopefully the units will be released by year’s end.
