Sony BDV-N5200W review


Best cinema system, Awards 2014. A well-featured package that delivers an exciting and convenient home cinema performance for a great price – Sony's on to a winner

Great surround performance Crisp, clear and detailed sound Subtle and big-scaled dynamics Punchy and energetic Clean picture with rich and natural colours Excellent features set Compact speaker design Easy to set up

Slight hardness to the sound at times

There’s little this Sony BDV-N5200W can’t do. As a home cinema system, it’s as tidy and convenient as it can get. And you don’t have to cash in your life savings either – £500 is a fantastic deal for what you’re getting. You could spend just as much on...

Great Sound, Slow Reaction time.


It was very easy to connect. Great deal for the money. The only issue that didn't make it a 10 -10 was the reaction time, first when you turn it on and then when you switch inputs. We use all of them up to and including the USB, Blueray, cable,...

Excellent sound quality, good value, NOT wireless


I bought the BDV 5200W model and have set up in my home. This is a very good quality system with lots of great features. Even the FM radio sounds like a Bose without paying the high price for it. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a...

Like being at the game!


The Sony Blu-Ray HTS is incredible. It was like being at the Super Bowl without the hassle. The sound and clarity are unmatched. The Blu-Ray player works flawlessly with depth of picture and color unlike anything I have experienced. And the online...
