Sony BDP-S6200 Blu Ray Player Overview
The BDP-S6200 is Sony’s best-but-one Blu-ray player, placed simply below the flagship BDP-S7200. The elegance of the BDP-S6200 is that offers most of the exact same attributes as the top-end model but also for concerning ₤ 50 less– the only significant difference is that the S7200 adds SACD and also hi-res audio playback, which you could not be troubled about anyway.
Even without them the BDP-S6200 is packed with features, including a riches of web content, DLNA data streaming and also 4K upscaling. We granted the dazzling BDP-S5200 a well-deserved 9/10 as well as if that deck’s anything to pass then we could have an additional champion on our hands.
Like every one of Sony’s 2014 gamers other than the BDP-S7200, the BDP-S6200 sporting activities the unique ‘Feeling of Quartz’ style introduced on Sony’s BRAVIA TVs, with sloping top panels that look a bit like a crystal. The mirrored panel at the front injects a touch of glamour, however the remainder is dressed in a modern gloss-black finish.
It’s an elegant approach, raising it above the aesthetic mediocrity of many Blu-ray decks, although it’s difficult to put any other components on the top if you’re so inclined. Develop high quality is suitable enough however the bodywork is a little bit plasticky.
The other significant aspect of the Sony’s style is its dimension– at 360mm it’s narrower than the majority of Blu-ray decks, which makes it a prime prospect for usage in a second space where room could be limited.
The inward-sloping front panel showcases a tiny however understandable LED display, a disc tray and a USB port hidden behind a plastic flap. Triangular power as well as eject switches are nicely included into the leading panel.
Given the cost as well as placing we expected a few more sockets. Actually the only point that separates it from the more affordable BDP-S1200, 4200 as well as 5200 is a 2nd USB port, which works if you wish to maintain a USB media gadget connected without it sticking out the front.
Given, the HDMI as well as coaxial digital sound results ought to be enough for lots of people, plus there’s an Ethernet port for those who like a wired web connection to the built-in Wi-Fi. Yet we would certainly anticipate more– at the very least an optical result, which is the input of selection for most soundbars and stereos nowadays.
One of the primary factors individuals grab Blu-ray decks (other than watching Blu-ray motion pictures) is to capitalize on integrated web applications, and on that rating Sony has actually long been one of the most effective in the business.
Recently, Samsung and to a lesser level LG have actually taken the sparkle off Sony’s selection with their special inclusion of applications like ITV Player/4OD (Samsung) and also Currently TV/Spotify (LG). But Sony still holds its own with a line-up that includes Amazon.com Immediate Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Need 5, BBC News, BBC Sport, Skies Information, YouTube and lots of lesser-known yet just as welcome applications. These can all be located in the Home food selection, as well as the dedicated Sony Enjoyment Network (SEN) user interface.
You could additionally access Sony’s Video and Music Unlimited services, surf the internet at large as well as listen to internet radio through the vTuner site. There’s tons extra content in the Opera TELEVISION Shop website also. If you like whiling away the hrs on video games, challenges as well as facts, you’ll be in seventh heaven.
Somewhere else the BDP-S6200 will stream web content from Computers, smart devices as well as any DLNA-compatible device on your home network. On the video side we had the ability to stream AVCHD, WMV, MP4, AVI yet unfortunately not DivX or MKV (the latter can be played from USB devices). Sustained music documents consist of MP3, FLAC, ALAC, AAC, WAV as well as WMA (once again, FLAC as well as ALAC are USB only) plus you can watch JPEG, PNG, GIF and MPO photos in a slide show.
The BDP-S6200 additionally flaunts Super Wi-Fi, which makes use of a ‘super delicate antenna’ to make certain a smooth, stable connection despite having a weak signal. We attempted connecting to a Wi-Fi router in the house from a yard office, and also unlike lots of gamers we’ve checked it locked on and streamed HD video clip from iPlayer (with the howling wind and also rainfall, may we include).
We have actually lengthy appreciated Sony’s Xross Media Bar user interface, which utilizes 2 intersecting axes to show the menu choices. It’s beginning to look a little outdated however functions in addition to ever before, permitting you to browse rapidly and smoothly. The graphics, text and backgrounds are clean as well as uncluttered, plus the intuitive format aids you locate material quickly.
