Sony BDV-N590 review


Sony has thought of pretty much everything with the BDV-N590. Style and substance combine with some clever usability features to make a staggeringly compelling product for the money.

Loud and clear sound, Clean images, Curvaceous design

Slightly awkward to wire-up speakers

Sony BDV-N590 review


a strong performer with plenty of features, but just lacking the comprehensive picture and sound controls that would make it perfect

At £379, the BDV-N590 is one of the more expensive all-in-one systems we’ve seen this year, but it justifies the price with great sound quality, plenty of features and a gorgeous design. It lacks some of the more advanced picture and sound quality...

Sony BDV-N590


Best cinema system, Awards 2012. Looks and sounds every bit the all-in-one answer to home cinema on a budget

Compact design, looks smart ; 3D, wireless, iPlayer, on-demand movies ; easily wall-mountable rear speakers ; detailed, cohesive sound ; great pictures

Given everything it does and the price, we’re struggling to find fault

Having recently taken a good look at the latest selection of home cinema all-in-one systems from the big players such as LG, Philips and Samsung, this Sony system scores an instant hit as an ultra-competitive product.
