Sony HT-X8500 review

 

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X from an affordable, compact soundbar

Neat design ; Dolby Atmos and DTS:X ; Weighty, open sound

Thick, muffled midrange ; Lack of crispness and definition ; Occasionally confusing operation

Strong home cinema specs and big scale sound are undermined by foggy audio quality

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Looks very nice and fits perfectly in front of my

 

Have had it for a month or so and up to now i am very happy with it, looks good and sounds good. Had a few setup problems but Sony soon sorted it out for me with one short phone call.

Excellent quality and features

 

Bought with Sony XG90 49”. Easy setup and sync well with TV and SkyQ. Sound quality is very good and more than adequate for medium sized rooms. Easy controller. Enhances TV sound and viewing experience. Highly recommended!

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Good bit of kit

 

Wish I'd gone for the htxf9000 as this is more compatible with my Sony 65” android tv. Didn't know at time but would have worked better with theatre system built into tv.

Simple and effective

 

This was recommended by a Sony 'expert' in store and he was absolutely bang-on our requirements. Very easy to set up and works very well. Still haven't used all the pre-set sound options but quick tests suggest will do all it promises

Just what I wanted

 

Wanted to upgrade from my dying 5.1 surround sound system and very happy with this purchase. Easy to set up (providing you have a fairly recent Sony TV) and the sound/bass are spot on. Easy to use and flick of a button to get the best sounds for films,...
