OPPO UDP-205 4K Ultra HD Audiophile Blu-ray Disc Player

I’ve spent a lot of time with Ultra HD (UHD) Blu-ray, but I can’t remember feeling this excited over a video format. Perhaps I felt the same when Blu-ray hit the market over 10 years ago with its obviously higher resolution when compared to DVD. But UHD Blu-ray is different. It’s an entirely different level of performance because we’re not just looking at an increase in resolution. There has never been dynamic range in video as large as it is on UHD Blu-ray. We’ve never seen colors matched so closely to movies as they are seen at commercial theaters, because we’ve taken steps away from the restrictive BT.709 color gamut of HDTV. Increased color volume, bit depth, resolution, frame rates, and improved compression all combine to create a new experience in home video. When paired with a capable and calibrated television or projector, it all makes me want to stay at home a little more and enjoy films in a way I never had before.  "

Blu-ray,Ultra HD,4k: Sony UBP-X800

Sony UBP-X800 review

Doing something for the first time can often be nerve-wracking. Bungee-jumping, for example, or going on a date. And making a success of it is even harder, as you venture forth into uncharted territory. No doubt Sony had similar feelings with the release of the UBP-X800, the comany's first 4K Blu-ray player. But it can rest easy; the X800 is a definite success. So, let’s start with the ‘things a good 4K Blu-ray player should do’ checklist. First up: colour. We feed the X800 a copy of the 4K HDR documentary Planet Earth II, and the vibrancy of the colour immediately hits us. The azure skyline pops against the white of the snow-capped Himalayas without appearing oversaturated, and the subtle hue differences in the fur of the wild cats are nuanced and natural. So far, so good.  "

OPPO UDP-205 Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player

High fidelity video and audio in one machine is completely possible. The OPPO UDP-205 sets out to prove just that. The OPPO UDP-205 Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player is a machine built for videophiles who have the audiophile bug – and what a machine it is! I knew something special was going to be in this box that weighs in just over 30lbs. How much different could it be from its smaller sibling, the already excellent UDP-203? The front panel of the machine follows almost the same design but with the addition of a headphone jack and a few more curves. It’s taller than the UDP-203 due to its double layer chassis, but still maintains its good looks. Of course, just like the love in your life, it’s all about what’s on the inside. "
