A play-anything player
The Sony UHP-H1 will play just about everything you want it to, from most high-definition video and High-Resolution Audio formats, to your favourite streaming services. If it's on a disc, the UHP-H1 will almost certainly be able to play it. It also plays audio and video via USB or over your home network, handling a wide range of file formats.
The UHP-H1 supports a host of master quality 24-bit audio formats, from AAC to WAV and much more. These High-Resolution Audio formats are far higher quality than MP3s and even CDs, letting you hear every breath, every drumbeat, every note. In addition, the UHP-H1 will also improve the quality of all your other music. Using DSEE HX technology, it upscales the sound quality of CDs, MP3s and other compressed music files, giving you back the full experience of the original recording. A high quality digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) handles all the audio duties, delivering distortion free sound.
Solid anti-vibration construction
The UHP-H1 is designed to minimise the impact of external vibrations, keeping its sound quality pure. The cross-beam chassis minimises electrical noise, for high sound and picture quality. Other features include ES class solder, an environmentally-friendly alloy solder based on high purity tin, which delivers responsive and smooth sound.
Real-time 4K upscaling
The UHP-H1's advanced 4K upscaling adapts to the source video's resolution. So you can always enjoy the best possible picture. Super Bit Mapping detects and reduces image noise, whilst the 16-bit upscaling process significantly reduces noise for a smoother picture. The smart and powerful processing deliver a smooth, high quality image, no matter the source.
You can connect all your AV technology to the UHP-H1 easily. It's ideal for enjoying photos, home movies and streaming services like Spotify, with enough high quality connections to handle anything.
The UHP-H1 offers Full HD streaming and a strong signal, so you can enjoy fast, stable streaming from a variety of services. Sony's LDAC technology can transmit approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth audio, which allows you to enjoy music content in exceptional sound quality, near to that of High Resolution Audio. Use the SongPal app on your mobile or tablet to stream content wirelessly from your UHP-H1 to other connected speakers and devices in your home.
