Sony HT-RT5 review


Can this hybrid home cinema system justify the premium price tag?

Clear and detailed sound ; Fast, attacking delivery ; Excellent features and connectivity ; Useful set-up and remote control

Surround experience isn’t satisfying ; Rival soundbars offer neater solutions and more engaging performances

A pricey soundbar system with plenty of features, but doesn’t deliver satisfying surround sound

Good system with built in Bluetooth and wireless speakers makes is it to install - no messy wires.

Sub woofer failed within 3 weeks of purchase which is very disappointing. Automatic speaker set up didn't result in right balance with rear speakers and sub to get a decent surround effect.
