Sony UHP-H1


Describing the UHP-H1 is tricky. At first glance it's a Blu-ray player, which plays Blu-ray discs. But dig a little deeper and you'll discover that it's much more than that. With Wi-Fi streaming, built-in smart apps and support for most hi-definition...

It may not be a UHD Blu-ray player, but Sony’s dazzling disc spinner breathes new life into your Blu-ray collection while effortlessly playing an extensive range of other sources and formats.

Sony UHP-H1 review


Sony's latest media player is as much about the audio as the visuals

Impressive upscaled Blu-ray HD image quality ; Audiophile-grade music playback from discs and files ; Sumptuous build quality

Doesn't support 4K UHD Blu-ray format ; An HEVC decoder for 4K streaming apps would have been nice

Is the Sony UHP-H1 a Hi-Res Audio media player that just happens to spin Blu-rays, or vice versa? We're not sure, but it's definitely brilliant.

Sony UHP-H1 review


One of the most talented multimedia players we've seen at the price

Great picture ; Great sound ; Plenty of features

Nothing for the money

The title Blu-ray player doesn't quite do it justice. This Sony is a great all-in-one disc spinner, and more

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony UHP-H1 is a premium Blu-ray player that can upscale standard Blu-rays to 4K, but won't play the latest Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. The main feature of this player is Sony's High-Resolution Audio technology, which it says reproduces sound that's...

Sony UHP-H1 Blu-ray Player Review


Sony's all-in-one solution is highly competent for both video and audio duties but we can't help but feel that unless you're specifically looking for a...

Faultless disc playback ; Great audio performance ; Good range of apps with 24p support ; Very quiet in use and well-built

No Ultra HD Blu-ray support ; No UHD streaming services ; Limited appeal

You would have to be specifically looking at the very niche area of Hi-Res audio playback to even consider the Sony UHP-H1 as a purchase. It does feature very good build quality, excellent replay of DVD and both 2D and 3D Blu-ray disc and a range of...

Solid performance


Reason for buying: Increasing numbers of music releases include Blu-ray material with no DVD equivalent. Also, I have several CD/SACD hybrid discs as well as a few DVDs with DVD-a content. The Sony UHP-H1 plays all those formats as well as "normal"...

plays sacds ; plays blu-ray hi-res audio ; easy to use apps

slow(ish) hand remote response ; poor manual

Fantastic Do all machine


It's all in What Hi-Fi's review. This is an excellent player that does everything it says on the tin including and this was important to me, playing back multi-channel mixed SACD discs via the HDMI output. Very few high end CD/SACD players can do this...

fully compatible with nearly every known disc , excellent sound quality and video , amazon prime compatible

Great value for money


Bought this product after reading some great reviews and after finding it also houses connections most other blu-rays do not have. So glad I took the plunge I couldn't be more pleased and so very easy to set up.
