I think the Sony PS5 easily performs than than the Xbox too. I am going to use mine as my only 4K Blu-ray player too. One thing though I have the sound coming through the TV sound on the amp, is that the way to do it?

As someone who has both a Series X and a PS5 I personally find that the Series X delivers the better picture and definitely better audio. That being said I found both to be lacking enough to warrant picking up an Panasonic UB820 and have no regrets with it.

HDR 10+ and especially Dolby Vision are essential. I own both consoles, but both are garbage for 4K UHD Blu-ray. Pretty lame how I still need to dish out another several hundred dollars for a capable Blu-ray player after already spending over $1K on 2 consoles that both have 4K players in them... one of which even does Dolby Vision for gaming, but not for 4K UHD Blu-rays. Pathetic. Watch them both add support when PS5 Pro and Series X.5 come along. Complete **** move from both Sony and MS.

Yeah the omission of the HDR formats is what drove me to pick up my dedicated player. The reason the Xbox can't do DV for 4k media yet supports DV for gaming is because full-fat 4k media DV requires a physical Dolby chip on-board while DV gaming does not. My guess is that MS/Sony decided the cost of that physical chip was not worth it considering most of their customers wouldn't care about it. At least the Xbox does DV gaming though... PS5 is lacking DV entirely (as well as Atmos) which is embarrassing in my opinion.
