About the Sony BDP-S6700

Jeff Miller

Your home theatre system's jack of all trades

I've built a solid Blu-ray collection, so I'm glad to see Sony is still committed to making great disc players. The Sony BDP-S6700 won't play Ultra-HD 4K Blu-ray discs, but it will upconvert standard Blu-ray and DVD discs to near-4K quality for playback on your Ultra HD TV. And this versatile player also offers popular streaming video services and delivers serious picture detail to a 1080p screen.

Your home theatre system's jack of all trades

I've built a solid Blu-ray collection, so I'm glad to see Sony is still committed to making great disc players. The Sony BDP-S6700 won't play Ultra-HD 4K Blu-ray discs, but it will upconvert standard Blu-ray and DVD discs to near-4K quality for playback on your Ultra HD TV. And this versatile player also offers popular streaming video services and delivers serious picture detail to a 1080p screen.

If you're connecting to a home theatre audio system, the BDP-S6700 supports high-resolution movie sound formats, like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS® HD. It will play CDs, SACDs, and music files from a thumb drive. Plus, it offers a wide variety of streaming audio options.

Dual-band Wi-Fi means smooth video streaming...

Dual-band Wi-Fi gives you a strong, quick connection for streaming services like Netflix. And Sony's noise reduction technology improves the quality of your streamed videos. On top of that, Miracast™ technology lets you “mirror” what you see on your smartphone or tablet on your TV's big screen.

Sony BDP-S6700

Send sound from the Sony BDP-S6700 to a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones (not included) for late night viewing.

...and music streaming, too

If you're a Spotify® Premium subscriber, Spotify Connect lets you play your albums and playlists through your connected speakers. Or you can download Sony's free SongPAL™ app for iOS® or Android™. It gives you wireless access to the music stored on your phone, Pandora® Internet radio, and even music stored on a DLNA-connected server.

Beam sound wirelessly to headphones via Bluetooth

The BDP-6700's built-in Bluetooth lets you send the sound of your movies, shows, and other media to a pair of Bluetooth headphones. This helps with late night binge-watching. You can catch all the dialogue and hear all the loud, exciting sound effects without waking everyone up.

Disc & USB Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The Sony BDP-S6700 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-ROM, BD-3D, BD-R, BD-RE
DVD DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, SACD

Blu-ray Disc: Blu-ray provides these key features and advantages.

  • 1080p Video Resolution: Blu-ray disc delivers full 1080p video resolution to provide pristine picture quality.
  • 25GB/50GB Capacity: Blu-ray disc offers up to 5x the capacity of standard DVDs; 25GB for single layer disc and 50GB for dual layer disc.
  • 7.1ch Audio: Blu-ray disc provides as many as 7.1 channels of native, uncompressed surround sound for crystal-clear audio entertainment.
  • Enhanced Interactivity: Enjoy such capabilities as seamless menu navigation, bonus features, and network/internet connectivity.
  • DVD Compatible: Blu-ray disc players enable you to continue to view and enjoy your existing DVD library.
Note: The BDP-S6700 plays Region A Blu-ray discs and Region 1 DVDs. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Firmware Updates: Occasionally, Sony may release updated firmware for this unit that may add or improve the way a feature operates. These updates are available free of charge. This unit is capable of checking the firmware automatically when connected to the Internet via broadband connection. Visit the Sony eSupport Site for the latest firmware update information.

SACD: Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range - some 64 times higher resolution then CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just cannot hear on a normal CD.

USB Port:  The front-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to play photo, videos, and music files on a connected USB device. The player can recognize Mass Storage Class (MSC) Devices that are FAT-compatible and Still Image Capture Devices (SICD) class devices. The player can recognize up to 500 folders/files. The USB port also allows you to enjoy additional content (such as BonusView) on certain Blu-ray Disc titles. Some BD-ROMs have bonus content and other data which can be downloaded to an inserted USB Flash Drive (minimum 1 GB recommended, sold separately).

Compatible Audio/Video/Photo Formats: The Sony Blu-ray disc player supports playback of the following audio/video/photo files recorded on BD-R/RE, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs; plus compatible USB memory devices.

Media Format File Type
Audio MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, WAV,
Video AVCHD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, WMV9, XVID
Photo JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP
Video Section

HDMI Output: The BDP-S6700's HDMI output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, 4K, or set to Auto (which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television).

  • 4K UHD Upscale: Experience your favorite movies in up to 4x the detail of Full HD with 4K upscaling. Connected to a compatible 4K TV, an advanced video processor inside the Blu-ray player converts standard video into a signal nearer to 4K resolution (3840 x 2160). With 8 million pixels in the picture, you get sharper, more detailed images, and the higher image quality lets you sit closer to the screen.
  • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The Blu-ray player supports 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0 color subsampling. An "Auto" setting detects the connected TV type and switches to the matching color setting. With 4:4:4, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
  • 24p Output: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second the BDP-S6700 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.
Note: This player does not offer any analog audio/video outputs.

3D-Ready w/ 2D-3D Conversion: The Sony BDP-S6700 lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. 3D viewing requires compatible 3D content, 3D-ready HDTV, 3D emitter and glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (supporting at least 10.2 Gbps) connection. The Sony BDP-S6700 can also convert 2D (two-dimensional) video content into simulated 3D (three-dimensional) video when connected to a 3D-ready TV, with 3D-glasses. You can make adjustments to the 3D image depth.

Advanced Color Technologies: The Sony BDP-S6700 Blu-ray player features Sony's proprietary Triluminos Color technology & Super Bit Mapping, as well as supports Deep Color.

  • Triluminos Color: The BDP-S6700 incorporates Sony's Triluminos Color technology to provide a wider color gamut with rich, authentic color and a far more natural viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth.
  • Super Bit Mapping: Super Bit Mapping reduces color banding by smoothing the gradation of video signals.
  • Deep Color: The Sony Blu-ray player supports a color depth of up to 12 bits. Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting it to a TV that does not support Deep Color. The Deep Color function can be set to 10-bit, 12-bit, 16-bit, Auto, or Off. 

IP Content Noise Reduction Pro: See it all clearly with IP Content Noise Reduction PRO, a combination of picture technologies. Noise reduction enhances low-resolution web videos, while HD Reality Enhancer does pixel-by-pixel analysis for texture and color definition. Enjoy more lifelike images with improved contrast thanks to Pure Picture Control, and smooth color gradation from Super Bit Mapping

Video Settings: The BDP-S6700 offers the following video adjustments:

  • Picture Quality Mode: You can select from 3 preset pictures settings (Direct, Brighter, Theater, Auto, or Custom) for different lighting environment. The Custom mode lets you adjust the contrast, brightness, color, and hue manually.
  • Texture & Contrast Remaster: Texture Remaster adjusts the sharpness and detail of the edges, while Contrast Remaster automatically arranges the black and white levels so that the screen is not too dark and the image is modulated.
  • Super Resolution + Smoothing: Super Resolution improves the overall resolution of picture. Smoothing reduces on-screen banding by smoothing gradations on flat areas.
  • Clear Black: Adjusts the display of the dark elements of the image. All shading is not suppressed; it allows beautifully reproduced black tones.
  • Noise Reduction: BNR reduces the mosaic-like block noise in the picture, MNR reduces minor noise around the picture outlines (mosquito noise), and I/P to enhance the picture quality of streamed network content.

Screen Settings: The Sony BDP-S6700 features the following screen settings:

  • TV Type: You can select a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected Television's screen aspect ratio.
  • Screen Size: For 3D viewing, you will need to set the screen size of your 3D-compatible TV.
  • Screen Format: You can select the display configuration for a 4:3 screen picture on a 16:9 wide screen television. You can choose Full or Normal (select when connected to a TV with a wide mode function; displays a 4:3 screen picture in 16:9 aspect ratio even on a wide-screen TV) or Normal (changes the picture size to fit the screen size with the original picture aspect ratio).
  • DVD Aspect Ratio: You can select the display configuration for playback of 16:9 screen pictures on a 4:3 screen TV. You can select from Letter Box or Pan & Scan

Cinema Conversion Mode: The Sony Blu-ray player offers two Cinema Conversion Modes - (1) Auto mode automatically detects whether the material is video-based or film-based, and switches to the appropriate conversion method. (2) The Video mode is suited for video-based material and will always be selected regardless of the content.

BonusView: The BonusView feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.

Audio Section

Surround Sound Decoders: The BDP-S6700 has built-in Dolby Digital and DTS surround processors; multi-channel PCM Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio are output through the HDMI jack (when encoded on the Blu-ray Disc).

  • Dolby Digital Plus: Dolby Digital Plus was developed as an extension to Dolby Digital. The audio coding technology supports 7.1 channel surround sound. Dolby Digital Plus also includes the standard Dolby Digital bit stream and is compatible with all current Dolby Digital processors using the coaxial digital output.
  • Dolby TrueHD: Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel surround sound for the next generation optical discs. The reproduced sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.
  • DTS-HD High Resolution Audio: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio supports a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multi-channel surround. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with a lossy compression.
  • DTS-HD Master Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps and uses lossless compression (Lossless), and DTS-HD Master Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.
Note: Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD are only output via the player's HDMI output.

Digital Music Enhancer: Breathe new life into your digital music with Digital Music Enhancer; a combination of three Sony audio technologies. DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine), Dynamic Range Recovery, and Advanced Auto Volume combine to restore detail and prevent volume jumps. The result is immersive sound and maximum impact for dialog, movies, and music.

Audio Settings: The BDP-S6700 allows you to adjust the following audio settings:

  • AV SYNC: Synchronize the picture and sound by delaying the audio output in relation to the picture output; 0 to 120 milliseconds.
  • Audio DRC: The player offers three dynamic range compression levels - Auto, On, Off.

Digital Audio Outputs: The BDP-S6700 is equipped with a coaxial (RCA) digital output. The Audio menu allows you to select the digital audio format that is passed through the coaxial digital output. Settings allow you to transfer Dolby Digital and/or DTS sound tracks, or down-mix surround bitstreams to 2-channel PCM audio.

Q
Can you explain what "4K video upscaling for use with Ultra HD TVs" mean?
gordon  Mar 27, 2024
1 answer
A
Greetings Gordon. Thank you for your question. Upscaling is a process to convert 1080P Blu-ray, 720P from cable companies even standard DVD 480P to look more like ultra high definition like 4K video. Honestly, I dont see that as much of a benefit on a Blu-Ray player because a 4K TV will do its own upscaling anyway.

Q
Can BDPS6700 play Dolby Atmos and/or DTS x?
clark  Nov 17, 2023
1 answer
A
Greetings Clark, thank you for your question. Unfortunately this model does neither Atmos, or DTS X. Not sure why, but its a player that was introduced back in 2016. If you need both, the next level up UBP X700M can, but that model does not play 3D discs if that matters.

Q
I see it will stream Netflix and Amazon Prime, can you stream Apple TV+ as well? is there a list of streaming options available to review
justin  Jul 03, 2022
1 answer
A
That's a good question Justin! I do not see Apple TV+ specifically listed, but there are some major players I do see listed. Netlfix, Amazon like you mentioned as well as Vudu, YuppTV, YouTube, Fox News, TMZ, MLB.TV, NBA Game Time to list a few. Sony does state that content can change, and some may not be available in all areas. Also of course that online content may require additional fees and/or PC registration.

THis will play USB thumb drive that you insert into the front panel. It will play .mp3's or .wav files, maybe others but that is all I use. It probably wants the thumbdrive formatted as fat32.

Does this item Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player support Closed Captioning? Thanx!
douglas  Apr 08, 2021
3 answers
A
This unit does have a way to help you get into the disc menu to turn on the text and even lets you customize the format that it is being displayed in. Also, some of the streaming services also have closed captioning that can be mixed into the video stream you get from them which typically needs to be turned on from the menu for the streaming service.

Both LED and wireless cause major health issues, can I take the wireless card out to disable harmful rf wireless radiation like with the Xbox?
william  Aug 11, 2020
1 answer
A
Never removed a card from one of my Sony Blu Ray players. But, if you don't set up the Wi-Fi function it shouldn't search for a signal. Another alternative is the Sony BDP-S1700 with ethernet port. Doesn't have Wi-Fi, but can be connected to internet via ethernet port. Just a suggestion. Hope it helped.

douglas  May 15, 2021

This unit only has one HDMI and video output. It does not have separate audio outputs so I know of no way to direct audio signal to a receiver
paul  May 12, 2020
A
It all depends on what kind of inputs are available on your receiver-- HDMI, RCA plugs, whatever. Once you determine what input will receive the DVD audio signal, see if Crutchfield sells an adapter or splitter for that. Best course would be to have the back of your receiver visible, or a photo of the back in front of you, then call Crutchfield customer service or search on their website. It will be "HDMI to _____ splitter/adapter" or"Digital Audio to_____ splitter/adapter."

Q
is this easy to hook up to Samsung TV & direct TV ?
dr. dennis  Mar 11, 2020

A
I hooked mine up through a video switching audio receiver but I'm sure it will connect easily to a Samsung tv through HDMI. It won't connect to a Direct TV device, and I'm not sure why it be beneficial if it could but if you have two HDMI ports you can keep both connected to your tv.
paul  Apr 14, 2020
A
Our family owns 2 of the Sony BDP-S6700. Yes, I my opinion it's an easy hook up, if the Samsung TV has an available HDMI port. If so, purchase a High Speed HDMI cable long enough to connect between the Sony BDP-S6700 and the Samsung TV. A 6' HDMI is usually sufficient. Depending on age, brand and model of TV you may have to change the TV input signal to watch Blu-ray movies. However, most Smart TV's will do this for you when you power on the Blu-ray player. If you plan to use the network function to stream programming you'll need to do so by Wired or Wi-Fi connection. The user manual instructions are easy to follow regarding connecting the Blu-ray player to TV and Network. I this hope this helps in addressing your question. MDK

Very easy. Likely your Sony to Samsung tv via hdmi1. Direct tv to Samsung tv via hdmi2. You can access prime video and Netflix thru the Sony as well.
punit  Apr 14, 2020
A
It is easy to hook up to a Samsung TV or probably any other - not sure what DirectTV has to do with it as that is a source, just like the Blu-ray player. You need enough hdmi inputs on your TV for all your sources, but otherwise should not interact.

james  Feb 28, 2017

No personal experience. But from DTS: Fully backward-compatible with existing DTS bitstreams, the newest iteration of DTS:X will also incorporate height channels. In comparison, Dolby Atmos and the last version of Dolby Pro Logic IIz also include height channels. It sound like the decoding is in the receiver and this should pass it through hdmi. You might need to just try it out. I doubt you will find any definitive answer anywhere

A
I think any DVD/Blu-ray player would "hook to a surround sound system. " can you be more specific about what your concerns are?
hugh  Dec 04, 2016
A
Yes. Connect a high-speed HDMI cable from the BDP-6700 to your AV receiver and then, from your AV receiver, run a second HDMI cable to your TV. If using an audio only surround receiver, you can connect the BDP-6700 to it via a coax digital cable while sending the video to your TV directly over the HDMI cable. You will need to set the appropriate menu items on all three components (BDP-6700, AV (or A) receiver, and TV) to reflect the setup that you are using.

It has an HDMI out. That plugs into any HDMI input on a surround sound recieiver. It will send whatever audio program that is encoded on whatever DVD or blue ray disc in the player. I use 5.1 surround, both DTS and Dolby digital discs on this player. HDMI contains both high definition video and surround sound audio in the same cable. Hope this helps.
