Rated 5 out of 5 by danbdevon 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 Danny94 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carpenter8480 from Exellent value for money I decided to upgrade my DVD Player to one that could play 4K and Blu-Ray as well as my old dvds,this one from Sony ticks all the boxes, with great pictures and sound on my LG 4K TV. A bargain for the money! As usual with Richer Sounds in Bristol, speedy dispatch to my door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vicky M from Easy to use! I know we’re way behind the times buying a blu ray player, but it just seemed a shame to throw away all our favourite films. As we had bought a new UHD 4K tv with soundbar we wanted to be able to enhance our watching experience even more - and we weren’t disappointed. We set it up easily, had to buy a couple of cables, but that was expected. We did our research and wanted this model due to its amazing capabilities of screening formats and can now watch our wedding photo disc in amazing quality. Price varied so much amongst retailers and I was sure a competitor would be cheaper, I was wrong. So, not only a great player but at a great price and with great delivery too. We were kept well informed at each stage of the process and couldn’t be happier with the product and the service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DEEJ1973 from Excellent - perfect companion to my new TV Bought this to use alongside my new Sony XG83 TV. Didn’t need all the streaming features of the next model up as the TV has those built in. It handles all discs well and loads much faster than my older Sony BD Player. 10/10 Great picture and sound

Rated 5 out of 5 by a_p_t from Fantastic picture Bought as a replacement for an ancient DVD player. The picture quality is superb, upscaling of existing DVDs works very well which means I don't need to replace my DVD collection with HD blu-ray. Handy USB port to play from a hard drive etc. Really pleased with this, especially for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by xrm42 from Great basic Blu-Ray player. I bought this a couple of weeks ago to go with a new 4K LG TV. It is a fairly basic model with no Wi-Fi, apps or streaming capabilities. However these features are simply not necessary since the TV does all these. There is a single HDMI output (connected to a Home Theatre System) an ethernet port on the back and a USB port on the front. The ethernet port is only for BD Live or firmware updates. It is a compact unit (much smaller than my previous Sony Blu-Ray) with a clean uncluttered design and a small, easy to handle remote control. There is no front panel display (like my previous model) however the information you need is displayed on the TV screen by pressing one button. Although there are no extra features such as apps and the internet it provides an exceptionally good picture with a 4K TV which is the most important part of any player. If you can do without the extras this is a good value player with the usual Sony quality. I would recommend both the player and Richer Sounds for their exceptionally good service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnfh from Sonos sub is the icing on the cake Adds real warmth and depth to streamed content as well as our music collection. However, be aware that DTS sound from Blu Ray movies is not compatible with Sonos and you will have to revert to Dolby 2.0.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ENRiley from Capable machine Got this to replace a faulty 800 model. Had problem with picture quality initially but after a visit to Preston branch and seeing Alan all now seems in order. Probably down to user error. Therefore up to now pleased the machine. Not had much time yet to give it a good workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AndyMWOT from No Frills But Very Useful Bought this to play BluRay discs. I didn't need any other functions such as Netflix, I can access that by other means. This is a super simple disc player which works for Blu Ray, DVD and as a bonus will play audio CDs. DVD upscaling works very well indeed. Very impressive bit of kit. Well satisfied.
