” The Sony HT-ST5000 takes the Dolby Atmos soundbar to new heights.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 award-winner.

7.1.2 S-Force PRO Front Surround technology

Thanks to its sophisticated processing, upward firing speakers and separate subwoofer, the Sony HT-ST500 gives a totally immersive sound – all from just two boxes. Coaxial speakers help deliver a precisely aligned soundstage while, at the same time, keeping the unit as compact as possible. Hugely immersive sound doesn’t get much more accessible than this!

Compatible with Dolby Atmos for totally immersive sound
Thanks to its unique speaker array this Sony soundbar is compatible with Dolby Atmos. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, it's just like being at the cinema!

Powerful bass from a wireless subwoofer
A separate subwoofer frees up the soundbar from the compromise of doing two jobs at once. Instead it remains dedicated to the task of providing a holographic 3D sound stage, leaving the subwoofer free to provide deep, cinema-like bass. What's more, with it being a wireless subwoofer you're free to position it anywhere within the room without the hassle of a connection wire between it and the soundbar.

Hi-Res Audio compatible
Being compatible with Hi-Res music files makes the Sony HT-ST5000 ideal for listening to your favourite music at the highest quality possible. With better-than-CD quality, you get to hear every subtle detail for breathtaking realism. Whatever the genre, music sounds better in Hi-Res.

Wireless streaming with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
For easy access to music on your smartphone or tablet, simply connect up via Bluetooth. This Sony soundbar is also equipped with the Sony developed codec, LDAC, giving CD-quality sound from Bluetooth audio streaming. The HT-ST5000 comes with Wi-Fi, too, letting you stream music from a host of online services.

Google Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

Bring your music together with Sony SongPal
Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and you'll have seamless access to all your favourite tracks, whether they're stored on your PC, server, or online music service. The app can also be used to customise sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio, and control multi-room listening.

Three HDMI connections for total system flexibility
Connecting up the Sony HTST5000 is easy and, thanks to the HDMI interface it makes the ideal home entertainment system hub. Simply connect your HD sources, such as digital TV box, games console and Blu-ray player via HDMI then link to your TV via another HDMI and you're good to go: immersive sound from all your sources.

HDR compatible
The HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR and HDCP2.2 , meaning they'll work with the current generation of UHD 4K Blu-ray players and TVs. Other inputs include an optical digital input, USB and 3.5mm mini-jack for your music sources.

Sony’s ultimate soundbar takes sound to a whole new dimension – the Atmos way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good when it works however has reliability issues First off, this bar is very expensive and when it works it's great but there's issues with the sub disconnecting in addition to issues arising from regular use and longevity if you read other reviews. I had two of these. The first sounded good but had been damaged in transit so a replacement was ordered. This bar has on screen display is built in and the video processor ran red hot on the top centre of the it's casing which I'm led to believe is one of the core issues with the bar. The sub was extremely unpredictable in some scenes namely scene two of Dunkirk and it simply couldn't handle it. The second bar...the sub wouldn't connect no matter what. Tested in store and was found to be faulty. Gutted as I really wanted one of these as they do sound great but there are better and cheaper options out there I think. If you buy this then you take the chance of it working or not but one thing is essential... Richer sounds six year warranty is a must have!!! Do your research before you consider buying this or find a store to demo it in. As usual Dale Euan Sam and Anis were amazing as always in the Newcastle store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from an excellent soundbar I bought this about 2 weeks ago and so far am really pleased with the build quality, superb sound and flexibility. Compliments the Bravia TV brilliantly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top sound but at a price I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I wanted immersive sound for movies and quality sound for my music collection without having to fill the room with speakers. It is expensive, but definitely delivers. Sound is clear with no noticeable distortion as you pump up the volume. It can play all the latest sound formats and has a wide range of adjustments to get the best possible sound whatever the format or source. I read the What Hifi review before buying these speakers and agree with everything it says. My only criticism is that the different sound modes have to be scrolled through sequentially which is a bit annoying, and could have been easily addressed by additional buttons on a slightly larger remote control. Otherwise it is really hard to fault. I’ve tried cheaper soundbars and soundboxes with good write ups which do a reasonable job if you just want better sound when watching TV, but this Sony soundbar is really Is on another level for sound quality and the range of adjustments that are available. Spend the money if you can afford it, it is worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound I bought this Sony HTST5000 a couple of weeks ago and so far I'm very impressed with the sound especially from 4K UHD Blu-ray's; although at times I think that Sony could have added the option for rear surround speakers and manual settings as well as the pre-sets. So if your looking for a Dolby Atmos SoundBar, the Sony HTST5000 was made for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good alternative to a home cinema setup I've always had a dedicated home cinema system with 5- 7 speakers. After moving into a smaller property space was restricted. Having looked at a wide range of sound bars, I wanted something that worked with all audio formats such as DTS-X and Dolby Atmos. Decided to give the Sony HTST5000 ago and have been impressed. The system produces clear vocals great effects and more so the bass is controlled and doesn't take over the whole system. Rumbels are present with authority and fill the room effortlessly. The other advantage this sound has is the AV Amp style set up menu which is great of adjust speaker level and distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for films, not sure about games or music! Ok, Generally it sounds great for films, although I still need to mess about with the settings to max out the surround and Atmos. My Windows 10 PC found the sound bar and installed Dolby Atmos. Great. As far as Bravia Sync..well my Sony 3DTV and 3D Blu-ray doesn't pick it up despite having all plugged into the sound bar. Don't think the bar has MHL which might be the issue and Bluetooth doesn't pick out the TV and visa versa. Sky Q picks up Dolby Atmos through the bar (if you have the 2Gig version) Sound quality doesn't match my aging Arcam A85 and CD92 CD player through B&W CDM1s speakers. However it ain't bad at all for what you get. Overall it sounds as good as your gonna get out of a soundbar if you can't oblige a separate speaker setup. Films will blow you away and the sub is stonking and overkill if you max it out. Got all the Dolby and DTS settings you can have currently (as far as I know) although not readily obvious when you put a film on. Occasionally the setting may show on screen at the start of a film via BR but you can select it via the remote. It just picks it up. Always wanted a good surround bar as I can't have the full works due to space and the Mrs.. I'll let you work that one out ;-) Paid £1200 notes and quick delivery from RS. Recommended.
