Make the most of your HDR TV

UHD Blu-ray maximises the potential of your 4K HDR TV and offers a better picture than even UHD streaming. The resolution from films on UHD 4K Blu-ray now matches the 4K UHD resolution of your TV - maximising the potential of every pixel to give super-crisp detail and realism. With a wide range of UHD Blu-ray films already available, you can enjoy the ultimate in sound and vision.

HDR10 for superior contrast
Compatibility with HDR10 gives the UBP-X500 the ability to work with the latest high-resolution video format. HDR10 maximises contrast, delivering the deepest blacks, brightest whites and stunning colour resolution. Put simply, HDR10 makes images look more real than ever before.

HDR to SDR convertor
If your current TV isn't compatible with HDR, the Sony features an HDR to SDR convertor. Sony's unique technology lets you playback HDR-encoded discs on a regular 4K UHD TV, offering the highest picture quality possible, whatever the 4K TV.

Wide-ranging disc playback, including SACD
As well as Blu-ray, DVD and CD, the Sony UBP-X500 plays a wide range of other discs. SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc) is a highlight, letting you get the very best performance from music discs.

USB interface
Featuring a front-mounted USB interface, the UBP-X500 can also playback a wide range of video and music files stored on your USB device. Compatible music and video formats include DSD, FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AAC, XVID, WMV, AVCID, MPEG2, MP3 and MPEG4.

Neat, compact design
With slick, timeless styling, the UBP-X500 looks every bit as good as you’d expect from the icon of electronic design - Sony. Standing just 45mm high and at just 212mm deep, it also fits where other Blu-ray players won’t. Ideal for a shelf, bookcase or even between your TV’s legs, the UBP-X500 goes just where you want it.

Unlock you TV’s potential, with the Sony UBP-X500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money The previous player link to the tv with a scart lead. Having bought a new Samsung TV decided to upgrade to a blu-ray/dvd player. Very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HD Blu-ray DVD player I love it. Picked up some of the classics on Blu-ray and I’ve had a field day. Haven’t stopped using it. Nice design, smooth disc transaction and great quality pictures. Happy days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4K UHD Player with all the right quality! I've been considering a 4K UHD Player for far too long now, having already bought some of my favourite films in that format, I was biding my time for the right setup... the Sony was too good to resist! After great service with the Richer Sounds customer service time via email, and honestly so quick, it arrived a day or two afterwards, easy to track, and even easier to setup. I've already been delving into Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and the quality is honestly astounding, the crisp, sharp imagery on my 4k Sony TV was worth the wait, and the service - thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and Great sound. I purchased this this month, January 2021. After buying a new 4k tv earlier last year I thought I best get the best out of it, hence purchasing a 4k bluray player. Spoke to a couple of staff at the Sheffield store as I have on many occasions about different purchases and they were fantastic. They are very knowledgeable about so much technology and highly recommended this player and their opinions and advice didn't disappoint. The 4k player is absolutely fantastic, can't fault the picture and sound. I highly recommend this product and furthermore I highly recommend Richer Sounds, their staff are very helpful. Anyone interested in any audio/visual equipment, check this company out, great customer service and very competitive prices. Support your independent companies.
