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

But those extensive features don’t make up for that disappointing performance. Despite Sony’s intentions, the HT-RT5’s thin, hard sound isn’t exciting or engaging, and those rear speakers fail to deliver on the promise of true surround sound. They also...

Not recommended

 

The sound quality is ok but the absolute volume is very low especially through HD channels. More annoyingly however, every time Sony has issued a software update, the unit has developed a fault. The fault renders the remote unusable and there is no...

Matches Bravia TV

 

Plug and play, unit comes with optical lead which can be plugged into the optical output of the TV. Uses ARC connection as well. Use Dolby as this will give a better sound when used. I prefer to use it's own remote control. Take advantage of the set up...
