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

Nice clear sound

 

Wifi rear speakers and subwoofer all excellent without wires getting in the way. One rear speaker had a problem connecting due to distance and solid wall in the way. Moved it slightly closer and now works fine. Base volume was a bit low after the auto...
