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.
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.
