Sony BDV-N5200W review

 

Best cinema system, Awards 2014. A well-featured package that delivers an exciting and convenient home cinema performance for a great price – Sony's on to a winner

Great surround performance Crisp, clear and detailed sound Subtle and big-scaled dynamics Punchy and energetic Clean picture with rich and natural colours Excellent features set Compact speaker design Easy to set up

Slight hardness to the sound at times

Instruction manual accuracy: it proved unnecessary to connect external receivers via the HDMI inputs on the Sony itself. Existing HDMI leads already into the TV were quite adequate. There was a big problem with the optical lead, which was a very loose...

I bought this item in September as a replacement for an older LG system. Sound quality is outstanding, and the smart features are fully loaded. NFC and Bluetooth are a very handy addition for streaming from my Sony phone and the design is gorgeous.

Very easy to set up with pretty much everything working out of the box. Connected with no problems to my PC-based media server (Mezzmo). Sound quality is excellent with several preset sound profiles.
