When I first started out at TweakTown over four years ago now, one of my first reviews was an AC Ryan media player, and till this day, I still have two of them - one in each of my living rooms. They're great players with an excellent and simple UI, which playback everything I throw at them over my NAS without an issue.
Fast forward to the end of 2014, where they reached out to me asking if I'd like to take a look at their new Veolo 4K player, as they knew I was a big fan of their previous units, and an even bigger fan of 4K content. Of course, I said yes. While there's not much 4K content out there, I do have 4K-capable cameras that I use thanks to my Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone and GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition.
This gives me the ability to shoot 4K video and play it back on the media player, and thankfully I have a bunch of 4K-capable TVs and monitors to use, too. For the purposes of the review, I'm using my Seiki Digital 39-inch 4K TV.
Inside of the AC Ryan Veolo 4K, we have an RK3299 Ultra Cortex-A17 quad-core SoC, 16GB of NAND flash storage, and 2GB of RAM. The quad-core processor is clocked at 1.8GHz, giving it plenty of grunt, considering its size. We have a Mali-T764 quad-core GPU with OpenGL ES 3.0, OpenCL 1.1 and DX11 support. On the software side of things, the Veolo 4K is running Android 4.4 KitKat.
Pricing & Availability
When it comes to pricing, AC Ryan has priced it quite well considering its specifications, quality, and the inclusion of a quality, versatile remote control. That's not even getting into how versatile the Veolo 4K media player itself is, thanks to it being powered by Android.
The Veolo 4K media player is available directly from AC Ryan's website for $249 Singapore Dollars, which is equal to $199. For under $200, this is a great unit, which we're going to talk about very soon. As for availability, the unit is available right now on AC Ryan's website.
