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.

We reviewed the player when it first arrived and showered it with praise. As our review summed up: “The UBP-X800 is unquestionably a superb all-round media player. Blu-ray picture quality is excellent, both with standard discs and UHD platters. Images are smooth and artfully precise. Universal audio disc support should also win it support in the hi-fi community.”
