Sony shows off high performance disc player at CES

Sony has announced a new high-performance disc spinner at CES, but perhaps the most notable thing about the UHP-H1 is that it's not a 4K UHD format machine. Interestingly, the brand has moved audio performance centre-stage, with its up scaling Blu-ray capabilities almost secondary. This puts Sony out of step with its main Blu-ray rivals, Panasonic and Samsung, who have been wowing show attendees with demos of HDR-enabled 4K Blu-ray content.The UHP-H1 is Super Audio CD compatible and features built-in audio apps for Spotify and Deezer. It's also compatible with High Res Audio formats, up to 192kHz/24-bit and double DSD (5.6MHz). The player features a rigid Frame and Beam chassis designed to minimises mechanical vibration. On-board there's a 32-bit 768kHz audio DAC. Twin HDMI outputs are provided. There's also an Audio Direct function that mutes the player's video output and switches off the front panel display. The player supports Bluetooth LDAC technology.
