    Features we love

    Certified 4K Ultra HD Blu ray

    Bring your 4K Blu-ray discs to life with this Certified 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. With 4 times the resolution of standard Blu-ray players, you’ll experience sharper resolution and crystal-clear picture quality. This is a perfect match if you've already got yourself a new 4K TV, or plan on upgrading in the future.

    Blu ray with 4K Ultra HD upscaling

    Experience stunning picture quality with this Blu-ray player with 4K upscaling. This feature boosts full HD to near 4K Ultra HD by upscaling lower resolution images. This creates an incredibly vibrant and detailed picture that’ll put you at the heart of the action in every movie.

    Dolby Atmos audio

    Dolby Atmos provides moving audio that immerses you in the atmosphere of what you’re watching. The sound is represented in 3D, so you hear it from all directions, allowing you to hear the helicopter chase above you or the sound of the ocean beneath you. This means you’ll enjoy an incredible level of clarity, realism and depth, so you’ll feel present in every scene, from dramatic dialogue to fast-paced action.

    HDR technology

    HDR brings out the best in your Blu-Ray discs by delivering incredible, life-like colours that’ll ensure you enjoy the ultimate home cinema experience. It works by ramping up the contrast to provide brighter whites and darker blacks, so every frame is super-dynamic and detailed. This means a more realistic picture onscreen, so you’ll feel more immersed in what you’re watching.

    Good but with flaws.

    4/5
    It's a simple BluRay player and does what it needs to do. Bit disappointed that to connect to the internet it needs an ethernet cable as it isn't wifi enabled. Also disappointing that you have to buy the HDMI cable separately, it should be included.

    The Blu-Ray of all Blu-Rays

    5/5
    Great quality product and the picture (4k) is incredible. I recently bought an LG 86" 4K tv and wanted to really put it through its paces so I bought the Blu-Ray player on a recommendation. It's quiet running, nice size and quick to load. Upscalling anything under 4K the picture quality is also really good. Really impressed
