Sony HT-A5000 review: The Dolby Atmos soundbar for hi-res audio fans


Sony's HT-A5000 goes up against formidable competitors from Sonos, Bose, and LG and proves that a single speaker can produce awesome immersive sound.

8K-ready HDMI input ; Excellent movie and music sound ; Easy on-screen setup ; Tons of connection options ; Hi-res, Sony 360RA, and DTS:X

No EQ adjustments ; Some settings are buried ; Poor integration of music services

“With every sound format and connection option we could want, the Sony HT-A5000 rocks.”

Sony HT-A5000


Combined with Sony's wireless SA-RS5 rear speakers and SA-SW3 wireless sub, the Sony HT-A5000 delivers superb Dolby Atmos and DTS:X performance.

Delivers a theater-like experience with a fully wireless speaker setup ; Immersive Dolby Atmos performance ; Frictionless setup and sound field optimization ; Can use the speakers in certain Sony TVs as the center channel

Optional SA-SW3 subwoofer calls attention to itself ; Some boxiness to the sound, particularly with music

When used in combination with Sony’s optional SA-RS5 rear speakers and SA-SW3 subwoofer, the HT-A5000 serves up a theater-like experience without the hassle of wired setup.

Sony HT-A5000 Review


The Sony HT-A5000 is a standalone 5.1.2 setup released in 2021. It's not as well-built as the 7.1.2 Sony HT-A7000, and its soundstage performance isn't as impres...

Good center channel performance. Subwoofer level adjustment. Room correction feature. Dialogue enhancement feature.

No bass and treble adjustments. Disappointing surrounds performance. No graphic EQ.

The Sony HT-A5000 soundbar is satisfactory for mixed usage. This soundbar comes with Sound Field Optimization, which automatically optimizes audio reproduction based on your room's unique acoustics. With this feature on, and its Vertical Surround...

Review: Sony HT-A5000 | Great Surround Sound From Sony


Sony's mid-range soundbar takes it up a notch with compelling surround sound. But how good is the HT-A5000 compared to the Sonos Arc?

The Sony HT-A5000 creates a big and clear sound image with a convincing surround effect, and can play loud without any sign of trouble.

Subwoofer and rear speakers are optional, and thus a significant extra cost.

The price range around a thousand euros is full of strong soundbars, but the Sony HT-A5000 stands out as one of the better ones we’ve heard. We’ve previously been impressed by the HT-A7000 big brother, but to our ears the little brother actually seems...

Can Sony bring its A-game to this mid-range Dolby Atmos soundbar?

Sony HT-A5000 review: Good-looking, powerful and superbly detailed


The Sony HT-A5000 packs a punch and can be upgraded to a potent full surround-sound package but is up against some serious competition

Powerful and detailed sound ; Attractive single-bar design ; Supports a wide range of audio formats

Bass can lack subtlety ; Male vocals can muffle ; Optional rear and bass speakers are expensive

The Sony A5000 is a good-looking, powerful and superbly detailed soundbar that also offers a much more serious upgrade path with its optional rear and subwoofer speakers than many of its peers.
