Sony made the most out of CES 2018, and released a host of products ranging from smartphones, to sound bars, and TVs. The Japanese manufacturer also happened to launch a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player, and a 2.1ch Compact Sound Bar. Read on, if you would like to know more about its latest devices.

Sony UBP-X700 & STR-DH790


The Sony UBP-X700 happens to be a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player, and is supposed to deliver content that looks realistic. It come with support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision, delivering content with great detail, colour, and brightness. Users will be able to stream content in 4K from platforms such as Netflix and YouTube, all through the UBP-X700. On the other hand, the Sony STR-DH790 is an AV Receiver and comes with 5.1.2 Channel along with support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.  Like the UBP-X700, the STR-DH790 also supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

With Advanced D.C.A.C (Digital Cinema Auto Calibration) in the STR-DH790, setup of speakers is made easy. It works via the use of a plug-in microphone, and a series of test tones which determine the proper speaker levels. This happens once the microphone detects the acoustical properties of the space it is in, and determines its placement. Sony also recommends users to pair the aforementioned devices together to create “a new realm of sound preserving picture quality.”
