Save on Sony’s superlative UBP-X800 4K player for Prime Day

As 4K gets more traction we’re seeing UHD players getting cheaper. The latest Prime Day deal we’ve spotted for one such player is Sony’s UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD player, which has been reduced by £40.

That discount sees it fall from Amazon’s current price of £208 to £169. Considering it first went on sale close to £400, that’s a tidy saving.

Sony’s X800 is still one of the better 4K Blu-ray players on the market, a universal audio disc player that’s also Hi-res audio compatible. Throw in the usual on-demand apps and excellent file compatibility and you have a player that can handle nearly anything you throw at it.

Whether you’re watching a HD Blu-ray or a 4K Blu-ray, films look superb with sharp images, accurate colours and excellent fine detail. It’s also a demon in the audio department offering superb clarity with DVD-audio and Super Audio CD recordings. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks are both supported, too.

If you’re after a player that supports Dolby Vision HDR, the X800 is not that player. Instead it sticks with HDR10 but that will be fine for most content you watch. Its upscaling abilities are also very good, should you want the player to do it instead of the TV.
