The box itself is presented well, with it being nice and clean with a black and gold styling on the outside. Here's the front and top of the Veolo 4K box.

On the rear of the box, we have the specifications and video support of the Veolo 4K player.

On the sides of the box, we have some more details on what to expect from the Veolo 4K player.

Opening up the box, everything has its own special little box. The Veolo 4K player sits on top, with the power adapter, HDMI cable and Veolo 4K remote, too.

Out of the box, we see that we have in total: an HDMI cable, power adapter, Veolo 4K remote, composite A/V cable (just in case, which is a nice touch from AC Ryan) and a quick start guide.

A Closer Look

AC Ryan has put quite a lot of effort into the Veolo 4K media player, which starts from the box, and its presentation, down to the finish on the Veolo 4K media player itself. It's an excellent experience that oozes style and quality.

Looking down at the Veolo 4K media player, we see a large power button at the front of it. You probably won't use this that often, as I didn't, as there's a power button on the remote control itself.

Here's a closer look at the front of the player, its power button and IR sensor for the remote control.

On the back of the Veolo 4K media player, we have its various ports, where from left to right we have: Gigabit Ethernet (RJ45), a USB port, SPDIF, micro HDMI, micro USB, a 3.5mm AUX port and the DC port for power.

Another look at the Veolo 4K, which has a beautiful finish on the top of it. It really does feel and look like a premium device.

The Remote Control

One of the things that I still love to this day about my AC Ryan media players is the remote control. They're simply enough that my nearly 4-year-old daughter can use it, without it being overly complicated. Well, AC Ryan has simplified it even more with the Veolo 4K remote control, which has around 1/6 the amount of buttons.

On the left, we have a full shot look at the remote control. On the right, we have a closer look at the actual buttons. We have a circle ring in the middle which acts as a directional pad for movement throughout the OS. It's super simple to use, which only goes in favor of AC Ryan.

From there, we have volume up and down which are obvious from the - and + buttons, as well as a home button and mouse control which is the little mouse cursor between the Home and Back buttons. The volume button in the upper left hand corner is obvious, as is the mute button to the right of it.

We did say the remote was stylish, stylish as hell.

The remote control itself takes two AAA batteries.
