    There're some compelling complaints...I.E. not supporting full 4:4:4

    Yeah, maybe wait and see whether the Monoprice one is any better. Interestingly, when I ordered another exact same Monoprice cable from Amazon EU (using the same link as before) I got it rather cheaper this time:




    Previous order:





    Hey, not to worry!

    Anyway, both will be compared with the Peerless Alpha ones I was using up until now, which The Sony Centre in Worcester (where I bought all my AV stuff from) chucked in for me, for free: https://www.electricaldiscountuk.co....1-5metres.html

    They're good cables and have served me well so far, so we'll see what happens!

    Indeed, as Grant says, it'll be some idiot not using it properly. I can categorically confirm that there are no 4K HDR issues with it in my set up.

    Bought the Wireworld cable on Sale or Return Marco.
    Spent similar on my interconnects so wanting to "do it once and do it right"...willing to spend the Wonga if it was SO much better.

    It wasn't.

    Yup, I can totally relate to the "do it once and do it right" philosophy, so I get that. Good job though, you found the Monoprice!

    Just bought this player for a little over $320 AUD - around 180 UK pound equivalent. What a fantastic player. SACD sounds great too. Quite a step up from my Sony BDP-S380 which could also play SACD. But the sound on this new machine is at a whole new level. Pictures are great and upscaling seems to improve Bluray discs too. Haven't tried apps as my adsl2 internet is too slowwww. Thanks for the heads up on this machine, as I was debating whether to go 4k or not, when I read the reviews here of this machine. Was looking at the X700 but for the extra $40, I thought this machine looked better built etc. The lack of Dolby Vision doesn't really worry me. Looking forward to a drop in price of 4K discs, but in the meantime really enjoying this player.

    Nice one, Greg. Sorry I missed this post! The Sony's a cracking machine, both for films and music. As you say though, 4K Blu-rays are spectacular, so enjoy!
