Sony BDV-N590 review


Best cinema system, Awards 2012. Looks and sounds every bit the all-in-one answer to home cinema on a budget

Compact design, looks smart ; 3D, wireless, iPlayer, on-demand movies ; easily wall-mountable rear speakers ; detailed, cohesive sound ; great pictures

Given everything it does and the price, we’re struggling to find fault

Best cinema system, Awards 2012. A hugely competitive system that looks and sounds every bit the all-in-one answer to home cinema on a budget

Sony has thought of pretty much everything with the BDV-N590. Style and substance combine with some clever usability features to make a staggeringly compelling product for the money.

Loud and clear sound, Clean images, Curvaceous design

Slightly awkward to wire-up speakers

a strong performer with plenty of features, but just lacking the comprehensive picture and sound controls that would make it perfect

The BDV-N590 also has you covered if you prefer to watch your own multimedia files. With integrated DLNA support, you can stream files from a networked PC or NAS device, as long as you’re online through a wired connection or the TV's integrated Wi-Fi....

The sound and DVD/Bluray/CD features are very good. It seems good value for money.

My BT Youview box does not work with the HDMI1 or HDMI2 inputs (no picture, no sound). I am unsure whether the BDVN590 is faulty or whether the BT-provided HDMI cable is inadequate.

Stylish F+R speakers and main unit. Compact centre speaker. Easy auto-calibration with supplied mic. Easy set-up with colour coded plugs, and standing or wallmounted speakers. Wiring was sufficient to go round my 3.5 x 4.0m room, but may not go much...

Installation instructions are only adequate, and should be supplemented by reading the full manual first, online. Access to the main units loading slot may be tricky if your shelves are too close together - I modified mine so the top shelf was only...

Sony BDV-N590


Awesome value for money, only minutes to set up with auto calibration! Simply plug in the jack, set calibration device in seating position and press ok! Calibrates with a series of tones to each speaker and was spot on! I adjusted the front and center...

User manual could be a little more informative but as its interface is really easy to navigate through this was only a minor point.
