Sony’s 4k Blu-ray Player with HDR10/Dolby Vision now shipping

Sony-UBP-X800M2-4k-blu-ray-player-wMoviesSony is now shipping its new 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc player that supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision, as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio formats. The UBP-X800M2 is priced $299 and for a limited time order from Amazon (and other retailers) and get two Sony 4k Blu-ray Discs: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Jumanji: Welcome To the Jungle in the box

The X800M2 also features DSEE HX technology to improve the dynamic range and frequency of CD/MP3 audio, 4k UHD upscaling for non-4k content, built-in Bluetooth, built-in WiFi, smart apps (like Netflix, Prime Video, etc.), and frame-and-beam chassis design to help eliminate micro-vibrations.

With OPPO out of the picture, there aren’t many 4k Blu-ray players that support both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Panasonic’s DP-UB820 ($499) and their higher-end DP-UB9000 ($999) support all four HDR formats (HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG). Pioneer’s hefty UDP-LX500 ($1,099) also supports HDR10/Dolby Vision (HSDR10+ via firmware update).

At $300, the Sony UBP-X800M2 player is currently the least expensive 4k Blu-ray player to support popular HDR formats (HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and hopefully HDR10+ via a future firmware update)  — making it a more affordable option for first-time buyers or anyone looking to upgrade to their existing deck.
