    What does this do that is $1,100 better than an xbox one s?

      Dolby Vision (Xbox only supports it streaming)
      HDR optimiser/tone mapping is huge

      The $650 820 model does the same though.

      Beats me but if you do some research and comparison, you will find some answers.

      It’s like asking why buy a BMW X5 when you can buy a KIA Sorrento

        So you buy the $1,300 (BMW) for that imaginary status symbol, cool, cool, got you.

          Basically, it offers HDR upscaling (that's not the correct term, but probably the easiest way to explain it). If you have contents which do not support HDR, it has the hardware to apply HDR to it. Its 1080p to 4K upscaling could also be better than XB1S/XB1X.

          It also does hardware audio decoding so you have 7.1 analog audio output (which XB1S/XB1X doesn't do - so if you want to do 7.1 speakers with XB1S/XB1X, you need a home theater system), but with this player, you could connect directly to speakers if you want to. Works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

          Don't get me wrong, my only UHD player is XB1X and I don't have 7.1 setup. I also only have 2 UHD movies. However, when I visited my mate's place with proper home theater setup, I was very impressed. I cannot afford a home theater setup, but I don't see a need to tease this (even if it may not be good value for money for most people).

      So how will the Xbox One S connect to legacy high end home theater without proper analogue DAC out?

    Doesn’t the 420 model do the same?

    Does this support Dolby Atmos like my Sony UBP-X800?

    Would go well with the new $1499 Sony 43" X80G LED 4K UHD Android TV.

      You should get at least 65" for 4K

      •  

        Yet at the regular 3-4m viewing distance, you get no better experience over 1080p anyway.

        Better off buying the best panel you can (OLED) and not bothering with 4k discs. On a projector, maybe. Panel TV, pointless. Pixel gain alone is BS.

    Honestly, it is over the budget for the average person. Most people will be thinking that. From what I can see it has really good analogue componentry but most people will only use HDMI. I am looking for a good deal on the ub820 as it has the dolby vision, etc and similar video processing as the 9000 but without the audio-file analogue and retains the older UI and remote but it is half the price.
