Sony launches its first Dolby Vision Blu-ray player and a Dolby Atmos receiver

New, 6 comments

Sony just announced both a 4K Blu-ray player that supports Dolby Vision HDR and an A/V receiver that offers Dolby Atmos audio here at CES 2018. The UBP-X700 Blu-ray player is designed for 4K Blu-ray discs with either HDR10 or Dolby Vision, and it includes built-in apps for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube.

The STR-DH790 receiver, according to Sony, can pass through both HDR formats without any loss in the signal. Both products will ship in the spring alongside Sony’s latest TV lineup and, at the top of the pile, a $30,000 short-throw 4K projector. Pricing isn’t yet available for the Blu-ray player and receiver.
