Where did you buy from?
Local or online?
Local sets usually is region A only.

Region B and C is cannot but some blu ray disc
have all region so shouldn't be any issues.
Unless you are talking about DVD than DVD region
is different from blu ray.

DVD is strictly NTSC 3 for local, US is NTSC and etc.
I know some buy blu ray player but play DVD.

Hi anyone can advise me which is a reasonable 4K blu ray player set to pair with my Samsung mu7000 and K950 soundbar?
Is $200 enough to get 1 in SG or better off to get 1 from Amazon? Totally no idea on what spec to get for the player. Thanks..

Looking at getting the Oppo 205 but it doesn't appear to be readily available ?

Are there any stores in SGP that carry or do I need to order from overseas (is that safe ? expensive ?)

Thanks
I just got it from sound affairs a few days ago

Still got stock

Samsung UBD-K8500 and Sony X-800 can be used with your 230VAC direct without transformer. I have tested with my units and I am not responsible if your's got blown doing the same.

Oppo-205 is the best 4K UHD Blu Ray player there is, in terms of performance, features and build quality.

I know 4K UHD player in SG very limited choices.
Samsung $599, LG $599, Oppo ($1K or so) cambridge audio 4k blu ray ($1.4k)
Oppo and Cambridge Audio can be found at Adelphi.

Here is some good news especially for those interested in the Sony 4K UHD player.
I have check with Sony SG and they are bringing in the Sony UBP-X700!

No confirm release date but they mention second half of 2018.
Take note that the Sony UBP-X700 uses a external power adapter
like Sony BDP-s6700.

SRP wise not known, probably around $500 or so.
For those intending to get Sony 4K UHD player you may have to wait.
Or get the UBP-X700 from US but I am not sure whether the
external power adapter is Universal or not.

I am also checking with them whether can pre-order or not.
For sure many will want to finally get a good 4K Blu ray player
so confirm it will sale out very fast.

For me it will give me ample time to migrate from 1080p setup
to 4K HDR. Just change a new 4K HDR TV but most of my
sources are still in 1080p except streaming services.

but not confirm.

Xbox One S Problem with 4K UHD Disc

Hi

Just bought an Xbox One S recently purely for the 4K UHD player. So far, all my Blu-rays played fine, and I only got 3 4K UHD Blu-rays, all from Warner Bros, Batman vs Superman, Wonder Woman, and Justice League. The first 2 played instantly without glitch, but Justice League can't play at all. The Xbox says it can't read the disc. I have a 1-to-1 exchange from the Blu-ray shop and the new disc still won't play.

Anyone having similar problems with the Xbox One S ?

Have you check that all the disc are Region A?
The disc is it from Amazon or locally purchase?
If locally purchase, maybe bring to Poh Kim ask them try.

Yes sometimes disc does have issue, I myself have encounter quite a few.
However disc from online than exchanging it is tedious.
Xbox One S I don't recommend it as a 4K UHD player, if there are still
issues opt to change to a dedicated 4K UHD player like from Samsung/LG.

Sony one I am still waiting but no news yet.

All 4k discs are region free... see if there are any issues with this issue of that disc.
Sometimes there's a production issue.
