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

There’s little this Sony BDV-N5200W can’t do. As a home cinema system, it’s as tidy and convenient as it can get. And you don’t have to cash in your life savings either – £500 is a fantastic deal for what you’re getting. You could spend just as much on...

Sony BDV-N5200W review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony BDV-N5200 is a home cinema system with plenty of features to play with, including smart TV, 3D Blu-ray and even 4K playback. It's not the cheapest home cinema system on the market, so does it justify its price tag? We took it to our lab to...

Decent Home Cinema System

 

This system was easy to set up, and worked straight of the box in terms of playing blu ray discs. It also performs well in playing 5.1 surround music discs. Setting up the link to a wireless router was a little less intuitive, but works fine once the...

Constantly freezes

 

Have had this for a while and, like other people, it was ok at first but should say that does not tie-up with Sony TV very well. It is now completely unresponsive to button pressing or remote control. I'm returning it to John Lewis.
