Ultra HD playback 

Make movies at home more cinematic with the Sony UBP-X500 4K Ultra HD 3D Blu-ray & DVD Player. Able to play 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, you'll love watching the latest films and box sets with a superb resolution, showing gorgeous detail with every pixel. It brings out the best in your movies, with rich colours and brightness that bring all kinds of content to life.

Don't have an HDR screen? No problem. The Sony UBPX500 Blu-ray Player uses a clever algorithm to adjust HDR content for non HDR televisions. That means you'll get a wider range of colour, along with the brightest and darkest shades in the same frame. 

4K upscaling 

No need to re-purchase your favourite DVDs in Blu-ray form. The Sony X500 will upscale your old movies to Ultra HD resolution, so you can see those action sequences and plot twists in four times the quality. So, dust off those discs and enjoy those classic films all over again. You may even discover new details. 

Dolby Atmos 

Enjoy immersive sound to make that blockbuster experience even better. With Dolby Atmos, the Sony X500B takes your audio three-dimensional, placing you at the centre of the action and pulling you into the dialogue and soundtrack. Simply hook up your compatible sound bar or home theatre kit, and get ready to hear and feel every layer of sound loud and clear.

Get yourself connected

Setting up your new kit doesn't need to be complicated. Avoid disappointment and make sure your system works straight out the box by checking you've got the right cables for your setup.

Sandstrom Gold Series cables are just the ticket - they even come with a reassuring lifetime guarantee. Happy faces all round.

I love the fact that the player makes you feel like your immersed in a 4K film. Brilliant. Can't fault the player especially as I got it in a sale.
Not really. Highly recommended.

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 4-7 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).
