Default Dedicated 4k Player or XBOX?

Right now, I’m using my XBOX as my 4k player. I’m considering purchasing a dedicated 4k player. What brands/models should I consider? My TV is a 55” Samsung Q70 QLED.

What are the Panasonic players like? I have a Panasonic Blu-Ray player and it takes forever for discs to “boot up”. Are their 4k players better with that?

I have the Sony x700. Mainly like it since it is so much quieter and has Dolby vision. It also has two hdmi so I can use my older receiver currently.
I also got a great price on it.

You could get a UHD player that support HDR10+ since your tv supports it. I know Xbox only supports basic HDR10 through its disk drive.

I don't think we know what HDR formats the Xbox Series X will support yet so that may not be a bad option

I’ll also mention that the Xbox One doesn’t properly support 24.000fps blu-rays. It outputs them at 23.976Hz, resulting in frame skips roughly every 41 seconds. They aren’t super common though, so it might not affect you that much. 24.000fps does seem to be growing in popularity though.

He wasn't actually talking about buying the new Xbox. He's currently using an existing machine to play 4K UHD's.

I've read that the current Xbox One X is the best UHD player in the world, so maybe there's no need looking for a dedicated player?

Without DV support idk how it could be in the running for best player. That's a pretty major feature to be missing.

Personally I like having a dedicated player (X700). Dolby Vision support, and I like having a dedicated remote made for movie playback functionality instead of video games.

I believe mine is an XBOX One S.

I also like having a dedicated remote. I知 considering the Sony X800M2. Amazon currently has it for $248, but I知 going to see if it drops for Black Friday/Cyber Monday since I知 not in a huge hurry to purchase.

Exactly? You really should rest your case since your posts here have been completely nonsensical.

Let me guess you didn't get your Xbox Series X pre order in either?

It does not have backwards Xbox game capabilities but it does have DSEE HX upscaling, SACD playback, 3D Blu ray, etc. I might nab one myself
